Within the International Council of Elders our work ethics, communication ethics, and performance ethics will all be governed by the laws and teachings of “YAH” that provides the perfect blueprint for how individuals should conduct their lives, as well as, set example for others. With this in mind we have set forth the following guiding principles:
CODE 1: Caring for the Stranger
“Thus said the “I AM THAT I AM”/YAH: Perform justice and righteousness and rescue the robbed from the hand of the oppressor; and to a stranger, orphan, and widow, do not maltreat, do not cheat; and do not shed innocent blood in this place.” (Jeremiah 22: 3)
CODE 2: Helping the Needy and the Powerless
“…you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand from your needy brother. But you shall surely open your hand to him…” (Deuteronomy 15: 7-8)
CODE 3 Just Treatment of One’s staff
“You shall not rule over him [the servant] through rigorous labor – you shall fear your CREATOR.” (Leviticus 25: 43)
Code 4: Not Engaging in Dishonest and Immoral Business Practices
“Distance yourself from a false matter.” (Exodus 23: 7)
Code 5: No Unjust Measures
Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.Just
balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am YHWH
your Elohim, which brought you out of the land of Mitzrayim (Egypt). Therefore
shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am YHWH.
Vayikra (Leviticus 19:35 – 37)
Whenever you possibly can, do good to those who need it. Never tell your neighbors to wait until tomorrow if you can help them now! (Proverb 3:27-28)
Code 6: Not Giving Bad Advice to the Unwary or Placing Temptation before the Morally Weak
Don't take advantage of the poor just because you can; don't take advantage of those who stand helpless in court. "I AM" will argue their case for them and threaten the life of anyone who threatens theirs. (Proverb: 22:22-23).
“You shall not curse the deaf nor place a stumbling block before the blind; you shall fear your “I AM THAT I AM” — "I AM"your JUDGE.” (Leviticus 19:14)
Code 7: Behaving in an authentic conduct
“These are the accounts of the Tabernacle, the Tabernacle of the Testimony, as they were calculated according to the commandment of Moses…” (Exodus 38:21)
“…and you shall be innocent before “YAH” and Israel.” (Numbers 32:22)
Code 8: Being careful About Not Causing Harm to Others
[Justice and Fairness] Do not spread false rumors, and do not help a guilty person by giving false testimony. Do not spread lies about anyone, and when someone is on trial for his life, speak out if your testimony can help him. I am the Lord; ( Leviticus 19:16 ; Exodus 23:1)
Code 9: Caring for the Environment
“And the "CREATOR"saw all that He made, and behold it was very good.” (Genesis 1: 31)
“And the "I AM the CREATOR" took the man [Adam] and placed him into the Garden of Eden, to work it and to protect it.” (Genesis 2: 15)
Code 10: Concern for Animal Rights
And Elohim said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.So Elohim created man in his own image, in the image of Elohim created he him; male and female created he them. And Elohim blessed them, and Elohim said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
And Elohim said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat (food). And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat (food): and it was so.
And Elohim saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. Genesis 1:26 - 31
