God replied “Moses there’s a reason for two tablets therefore leave the font alone.” Moses not knowing the reason for two tablets when one would obviously suffice, “Father God, I’m sorry why are you insistent on two tablets when one will suffice?”
    God with a loving voice replied, “Moses, the first 5 commandments are to do with man dealing with authority and me. The second tablet has to do with how man reacts to man. When man loses his love and respect for me, the first tablet is thrown out. Then man will soon lose love and respect for his neighbor, which will eventually throw out the second tablet”.
