In the Bible, a man's home is his castle, and family property is most important, but not absolutely so (cf. Exo. 21:33-34; Deut. 22:8). All property is ultimately God's, and men hold it in stewardship from Him. He has chosen to allot the land by families, rather than to communes or to states, but His law still governs the family property. Thus, the man who says he is not liable for hazards on his property is assuming too much. He is playing God, assuming that his right and power over his property are absolute.
