					 YOU SHALL NOT
    REMOVE
YOUR NEIGHBOR'S
   LANDMARK
Deuteronomy 19:14 You shall not remove
your neighbor's landmark, which the men of
 old have set, in your inheritance which you
will inherit in the land that the Lord your God
            is giving you to possess.
               Background
Before surveying equipment, iron pins,
 computerized records, and GPS;
Before there was barbed wire fencing;
Posts, rocks, and trees were used to mark the
 corners of property boundaries
A thief could move or remove a marker and
  steal property
               Background
These warning are found in several places in
 the Bible – in addition to our text
  Deuteronomy 27:17
  Job 24:2
  Proverbs 23:10
Even today – there are no fences in Israel
There are landmarks of the faith once
 delivered
They should not be moved or altered
                   The Text

To move a marker is to steal property
Each tribe divided its territory for each family
On Jubilee the land returned to the original
 family

           6 I marvel that you are turning away
Truth        so soon from Him who called you in
             the grace of Christ, to a different

             there are some who trouble you
             and want to pervert the gospel of
             Christ. 8 But even if we, or an
             angel from heaven, preach any
             other gospel to you than what we
             have preached to you, let him be

            come when they will not endure
Bible       sound doctrine, but according to their
            own desires, because they have
            itching ears, they will heap up for
            themselves teachers; 4 and they will
            turn their ears away from the truth,
            and be turned aside to fables.

        19 and if anyone takes away from
