As we move toward the end of our Perfect 10 sermon series, Pastor Greg Whaley takes an in-depth look at the injunction against covetousness found in Exodus 20:17. The Ten Commandments are more than merely a to-do list or an empty moral code.

This sermon was recorded on Sunday, August 17. This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, LA. Thank you for listening.
