100 Plus Rules and Regulations

Yes, believe it or not, I found a twenty- page list of rules and regulations for grammar. I got dizzy halfway down the first page and gave up.

For instance- Alright vs. all right. “All right” is a commonly used phrase for okay, while alright doesn’t technically exist. And yet we all use it!

Or try this one. Further vs. farther. Farther describes how far in terms of physical distance, while further is used in the other cases.

And another…Heroes vs. heros. “Heroes” is the plural of “hero,” while “Heros” is a type of fish.

Imagine twenty pages of this. Are you dizzying also?

God gave the Israelites ten commandments and yet somehow, they became hundreds more. We are all guilty.

A simple search called up the ten commandments for children, for Catholics, for Protestants, and adults. One site compared the list in Exodus 20:2-17 and Deut. 5:6-21, and argued the strength of one versus the other!

Here is the simple truth. Let’s not try to make them say what we want them to say instead.

You shall have no other God’s before me.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images. …

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. …

Remember the Sabbath day and keep it Holy. …

Honor your father and mother. …

Thou shalt not kill. …

Thou shalt not commit adultery. …

Thou shalt not steal.

Thou shall not bear false witness.

You shall not covet.
