    ...since slandering of the Law is considered as an evil act...

    “Abjure all evil” should be “Abjure all slandering of the Law” since slandering of the Law is considered as an evil act that creates grave negative karma.

    Is 'as' necessary?

    Thanks.

    What is the source of this and other sentences you have quoted in this series of questions, Tan Elaine?

    By the way, that's illogical. It's a fallacy.
    "Abjure breaking the law" should be "Abjure jay-walking" since jay-walking is considered breaking the law. - Wrong
    "Abjure A, B, C, D, E" should be "Abjure A" because A is considered to be an example of "A, B, C, D, E". - Wrong
    "Keep the 10 Commandments" should be "Keep Commandment 10, since Commandment 10 is one of the 10 Commandments. - Wrong.

    The words are from a priest who was delivering a sermon.

    Did you memorise the entire sermon while you were listening to it?

    Yes, it is in print. The sermon is in the magazine.

    When we ask for the source, we want you to give the name of the speaker and, in this case, the name of the magazine in which you found it.
