Witnesses

Witnesses: Deuteronomy 19: The Charm of Home

14 “When you arrive in the land the Lord your God is giving you as your special possession, you must never steal anyone’s land by moving the boundary markers your ancestors set up to mark their property.
15 “You must not convict anyone of a crime on the testimony of only one witness. The facts of the case must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.
16 “If a malicious witness comes forward and accuses someone of a crime, 17 then both the accuser and accused must appear before the Lord by coming to the priests and judges in office at that time. 18 The judges must investigate the case thoroughly. If the accuser has brought false charges against his fellow Israelite, 19 you must impose on the accuser the sentence he intended for the other person. In this way, you will purge such evil from among you. 20 Then the rest of the people will hear about it and be afraid to do such an evil thing. 21 You must show no pity for the guilty! Your rule should be life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
Deuteronomy 19:14-20
Just as in the day when God instructed the people of Israel to have 2-3 witnesses, in the end of days there will also be witnesses to your actions.
Reference: 1 Corinthians 6:1-3

All glory and honor to my Lord Jesus Christ,
Sherry

I love the scripture you shared. It makes me think about how words are being redefined to mean things they didn't mean before, just to ease the consciences of those who willingly walk in sin before God. I think that might qualify as "moving the boundary," don't you?
