Corrie ten Boom Took the Ten Commandments very Literally

From Ten Boom - beyond the attic or revisit the attic?

Ten Boom sister: I'm glad I wasn't in the shop yesterday

Man: The gestapo come?

Sister: They were just soldiers

Man: Did they ask you about sheltering


Sister: Thankfully, no.

Sister 2: I"m so torn as to what to say.

God says to never lie but I must be truthful if asked.

Rabbi: Wait! What do you mean, "THankfully, no" You're not saying that if they had asked you if you were sheltering Jews that you would have betrayed your Jews? You would have betrayed human life to save your mouth from being soiled by a lie?

Sister 1: Please, Yussi,   sit down, let's talk

Rabbi:  We're talking about human lives here and you just want to talk?

Man: shush people on the street are looking up here

Sister 1: I'm only saying is that I didn't want to lie.

Sister 2: Surely, as a Jew you know the ninth commandment "thou shalt not bear false witness"

Mr. Ten Boom: Children please the ultimate law is to obey the law of God not that of man

Sister 1 & Rabbi simultaneously: Exactly!

Rabbi: Have you ever been afraid? I mean really afraid? Afraid for your life? No, of course you haven't.  You weren't in that house in Amsterdam where the people chose to kill themselves rather than surrender. I would kill to save those lives

Sister 1: Well, that is where you and I disgree.

Rabbi: Really? Did not the great grandmother of your messiah, Rehab, lie to save the spies in Jericho?   And what about Moses?  The midwives? Did not they lie to save the Hebrew babies? And what did the Bible say? They were blessed by God. Your selective morality is dangerous

Man: Yussi, they are only trying to obey God. I understand you're upset, please, show the Ten Booms some respect.  They are, after all, endangering their lives for you.

Rabbi: Now then Betsy, you lie to the Germans every day. You use stolen ratin books. You have forged docuemtns all over the place. How do you rationalize those lies?  Just apply those simple rationalizations to save the lives of us Yids! I wish to have your answer.

Mr. Ten Boom: Whatever befalls you, also befalls us.

Sequel of sorts to Julia Harris "The Hiding Place"
