From what's still one of my all-time favorite comics, New Zealand's Andrew & Roger Langridge's ART D'ECCO (which you can buy here, and I recommend it). Burn, sinner!

Wait, I don't get it... What did the granny wrong with the 1st commandement? (what is the 1st commandement, by the way?)

I'm betting it's something to do with taking the Lord's name in vain.

Or second. Depending whose dividing them up. Idolatry's part of the first by the Catholic enumeration.

Ummm.... The first commandment is "I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt have no other gods than Me" (in one variation opf the wording or another).

In what way did granny break it? Spending her money on the house and admiring it?

Well, until that point it's at least internally consistent and approaching the coherent in it's approach to Biblical interpretation. Granny dying because of the First Commandment doesn't even make sense in it's own story.

But loathe though I am to say it, the few Chick tracts I've made it through aren't THAT incoherent. They're insane, and offensive on just about every level I know and probably numerous layers beyond that, but they're consistently insane.

Seems that EVERYBODY is having that reaction.

I suppose it could be calling the house a 'false idol', but that'd twisting the commandment even further than the other instances in the story...

Perhaps they meant the second commandment - 'Thou shalt not take the Lord's name in vain', which is variously interpreted as 'don't swear false oaths', 'don't blaspheme', 'don't try to tell God what to do', and 'don't use dirty language' - which can be bent slightly to make it apply to what she did. (Specifically the third interpretation.)

I thought the last one was going to be Matthew 7:2
