Property Rights Under God's Law

For the most part, communism is atheistic. Why? Because they reject the property rights of The Ten Commandments. All of The Commandments are about not violating that which belongs to God ('Thou shalt have no other gods before Me', 'Thou shalt not make any graven image', 'Thou shalt not take The Lord's Name in vain' and 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it Holy') or that which belongs to other people ('Honour thy father and thy mother', 'Thou shalt not kill', 'Thou shalt not commit adultery', 'Thou shalt not steal', 'Thou shalt not bear false witness' and 'Thou shalt not covet').

Examples Of Biblical Property Rights

The examples below are from the "Old" Testament, but nothing has changed. That's why Christ said, in the "New" Testament, "12:29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house" (Matthew 12:29 KJV).

The Ten Commandments

"22:1 If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.

22:2 If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him. 22:3 If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

22:4 If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.

22:5 If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall put in his beast, and shall feed in another man's field; of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he make restitution.

22:6 If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the stacks of corn, or the standing corn, or the field, be consumed therewith; he that kindled the fire shall surely make restitution.

22:7 If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man's house; if the thief be found, let him pay double. 22:8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his neighbour's goods. 22:9 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbour.

22:10 If a man deliver unto his neighbour an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it: 22:11 Then shall an oath of the LORD be between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour's goods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good. 22:12 And if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the owner thereof. 22:13 If it be torn in pieces, then let him bring it for witness, and he shall not make good that which was torn.

22:14 And if a man borrow ought of his neighbour, and it be hurt, or die, the owner thereof being not with it, he shall surely make it good. 22:15 But if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it good: if it be an hired thing, it came for his hire." (Exodus 22:1-15 KJV)

Fact Finder: (a) After Christ's return, will all physical humans own their own property (i.e. "they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree")? (b) How will Christ enforce the property rights of God and man?
(a) Micah 4:1-4
