The Catholic Ten Commandments
CATHOLICS CHANGED THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
The Catholic Church knew the power of idols had on the people. They wanted this power so they changed the Ten Commandments so that idol worship was NOT one of the commandments...
Here are the Ten Commandments according to the Catholics;
1. I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have other gods besides me.
2. You shall not take the name of the Lord God in vain
3. Remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day
4. Honor your father and your mother
5. You shall not kill
6. You shall not commit adultery
7. You shall not steal
8. You shall not bear false witness
9. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife
10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods
Point 1 – Instead of remember the Sabbath and keep it holy …. they change the commandment to say, "remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day.” And of course, according to them, the Lord’s Day is Sunday, not Saturday. However it is very clear that the Old Testament commandment states “the Sabbath,” or Saturday. Sunday has always been the day the pagans worshiped the Sun.
Point 2 – Also, another major difference of their altered commandments is that they left out the commandment not to have any graven images of anything in the heaven, earth, and waters.
8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:
9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.
The Catholic church loves graven images because they know the people adore them and will be magnetized to their church because of them. They had to remove that commandment.
Point 3 – The Catholics also modified the last commandment. To make ten commandments they split the last commandment not to covet anything of your neighbors and made two commandments out of it; Not to covet thy neighbors wife, and not to covet thy neighbors goods. So, that makes ten. The Catholics have ten commandments also.
This is a chart from a Christian site. They typically degrade Jews as falling short and themselves as they see themselves as so inspired knowing "the truth" and being saved. Here they show the Jewish commandments as having left out the no graven images commandment, and this is done knowing that this not accurate. Jews are very adamant about not having anything close to a graven image as commanded in Exodus Chapter 20:4 to 6 and in Deuteronomy Chapter 5:8 to 10. Jews will not even have graven images of any political leader no matter how great or even graven images of their children. No graven images period (flat pictures are O.K.)!
The Christians are so inspired they don't even state a commandment for number one in the Jewish column.

4–6 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Deuteronomy Chapter 5:8 to 10
8–10 “‘You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Christians are violating at least 4 of the Ten Commandments on a continual basis!
- You shall not make for yourself any graven image, nor any manner of likeness, of any thing that is heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth (Idols of Crosses, Statutes of Jesus, Mary, & Saints)
- No false Gods before me (three Gods in one God, Jesus is God)
- Take the name of God in vain (Jesus born of a virgin is God in the flesh, Jesus is the son of God)
- Remember the Sabbath, to keep it holy (Keep the Sundayath)
