‘Love thy neighbor’ is an impossible commandment

October 31, 2013
The Maui News

An Oct. 28 letter stating that "Love thy neighbor as thyself" was one of the Ten Commandments. This statement is incorrect. The phrase "Love thy neighbor as thyself" is often referred to as the Golden Rule but it is not part of the Ten Commandments as listed in the Book of Exodus 20:1-14 in the Tanach (Jewish Bible), nor is it listed as a commandment in Protestant Christianity and Roman Catholic Bibles.
