A crime is seqular, a sin is religious.
So where/how do you class the Ten Commandments, secular, religious, or perhaps they are ubiquitous (neither inherently in or of themselves), or perhaps a mix between the two (separated culturally/ethnically)? Are there connotations which restrict distinctions along racial or cultural demarcations? Is stealing religious, criminal or both? Murder? Covetousness (my neighbors wife is absolutely gorgeous and her SPIRIT is both kind, gentle, convivial, and yet can be equally full of fire)? Should my neighbor be concerned if we are both military men, but I am in the position of authority and (with deliberate intent) order him to a position near the front line that places him in direct line of fire? Is it or would it then be a crime or a sin to pursue his widow? I know war is hell, but Pat Benatar sings 'love is a battlefield.'
