The Nine Principles

  1. Do not think dishonestly
  2. The Way is in Training
  3. Become acquainted with with every act
  4. Know the Ways of all professions
  5. Distinguish between gain and loss in worldly matters
  6. Develop intuitive judgment and understanding for everything
  7. Perceive those things that connot be seen
  8. Pay attention even to little things
  9. Do nothing that is of no use

—Musachi Miyamoto, 1645

Mustache Minamoto, according to Wikipedia, was a swordsman in the 17th Century that epitomizes the legend of the lone samurai, and taught “the principle that all technique is simply a method of cutting down one’s opponent.”

Question: How do these principles hold up in light of Judaeo Christian Scripture?

I’d love to hear your answers.
