Thou Shalt Not…

I was watching some church TV when I was flipping through channels last week and I happened across a preacher talking on the command “Thous Shalt Not Steal”. It was pretty interesting as he focused on different ways we steel from others besides the normal… I took  a candy bar from a grocery store when I was 12.
