    When we speak or hear about the law of God or the Ten Commandments, love is usually the last thing that comes to our minds. We tend to picture large stones and towering inscriptions laid out before us, written by the hand of an angry God, a Just Judge. We see the bold words “THOU SHALT NOT” and cower in fear. We tend to correlate the law of the big ten with the halls of justice, cold, insensitive, exacting, condemning. We see them devoid of all emotion, warmth, endearment, understanding, forgiveness

    not from a single entity such as the king. Power that comes from such sources is usually referred to as naked power. In such a scenario, we cannot totally agree that the Horatii were comfortable with the title as champions. They might be indulged to obey the state because they ought to, or because they are afraid of the consequences.
