Ron Howard & Tom Hanks Break The 8th Commandment

If you two were even a nominal Christian, you would be aware of the 10 commandments, especially the eighth commandment. If you open your Bible to the Old Testament, you'll find two verses expressing this sentiment:
"You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor." --Exodus 20:16 "Neither shall you bear false witness against your neighbor." --Deuteronomy 5:20
If you are Catholic, it is even more explicit because tradition and scripture tells us that a lie: " . . . consists in speaking a falsehood with the intention of deceiving." The Lord denounces lying as the work of the devil:

"You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to this own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies."

--John 8:44

"Lying is the most direct offense against the truth." "The gravity of a lie is measured against the nature of the truth it deforms, the circumstances, the intentions of the one who lies, and the harm suffered by its victims." The Catholic Church states that: "The eighth commandment forbids misrepresenting the truth in our relations with others. This moral prescription flows from the vocation of the holy people to bear witness to their God who is the truth and wills the truth. Offenses against the truth express by word or deed a refusal to commit oneself to moral uprightness: they are fundamental infidelities to God and, in this sense, they undermine the foundations of the covenant" To learn more about the 10 Commandment click here.
