    Yes, barring mitigating factors.

    No--coveting, envy, jealousy, etc. are sins that haven't been acted on. Thus they should not be considered crimes.

    Basically I think it is being asked -

    "Should government take the Levitical statutes and ordinances of the Old Testament and turn them into the secular laws of society punishable by civil penalties? Should we have a Judeo / Christian theocracy?"
