  • Yes. Thou shall not covet.
  • Yes I do, the bible states that ''love is patient, love is kind it does not envy''.
  • Actually, it is one of the 10 Commandments: "Thou shall not covet thy neighbours goods" which translates to you should not want what somebody else has and let it make you insanely upset because YOU don't have it - that my dear, is a sin!
  • im not even a christian and its obvious that jealousy is a flaw
  • I think it's VERY natural and some savants would tell you even a little necessary in a relationship (so long as it's a "healthy" dose). Trying to CONTROL someone out of jealousy is UNHEALTHY and detrimental to a relationship!
  • Jealousy
  • In the Bible, jealousy can be positive or negative. If you jealously guard the truth, it is good. God is a jealous god- that means that he cares for us fiercely and does all things for our good. That is good, too. But if a jealousy is based on insecurity in a relationship, that is not good. If jealousy means controlling another human for ones own benefit, it is wrong.
    • Rick
      Where in the Bible does it say jealousy is good. In the Bible it say love is not jealous. I know God is jealous of other gods. Other words is a a sin to make anybody or anything more important that Him. Those are gods when they are more important than Him.

  • People with jealousy are obviously flawed people. Otherwise they wouldn't be jealous.

  • Yes I do because jealousy does not and is not love.
