"Do good things." If we take that phrase alone, the Godlessness of it is enough to make you sick. How, without the standard that God sets, do you know what "good" is? A pedophile "feels good" when they molest children. A thief "feels good" when they get away with their crime. God sets an uncompromising standard for "good" and "truth" and that is how we know what is required of us as set forth in the Ten Commandments.

Interesting article. Not the way I would have written it (nothing ever is), but nevertheless very thought-provoking.
There's also Rome's example: The Law of the Twelve Tables. This isn't what we'd adopt as a legal code today, but they carved it in stone and displayed it in public.
