An important corollary of above commandments and Monotheism is that Mesopotamian commandments are public in sphere, with no claim to any individual superiority and hence according to Mesopotamian Law, no individual can claim prophethood. Any such claim is bogus and punishable offence according to Mesopotamian laws, culture and tradition.
Another very important corollary, which follows from the above discussion and commandments is that Mesopotamians can have only a Mesopotamian as holy priest or holy King or spiritual leader. Taking a Non-Mesopotamian as priest or King or Spiritual leader is blasphemy and an offense punishable by death.
*An important corollary of above laws is that any law by man which goes against the above commandments is unacceptable and bogus.
