Catholics don’t even follow the Ten Commandments!

By Basilissa, a Chaste and God-Fearing Christian Woman

It took me a long time to figure it out, but here it is: Catholics are so far away from the Bible that they don’t even follow the same Ten Commandments! I’ve searched the forum and I haven’t found a thread about this Catholic fallacy, so here it goes.

This is the Biblical list of the Ten Commandments (see e.g. this thread):

1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
2.Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.
3. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain;
4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
5. Honour thy father and thy mother:
6. Thou shalt not kill.
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
8. Thou shalt not steal.
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
10.Thou shalt not covet . . .

Now look at this list copied from an ungodly Catholic website:
  1. I am the LORD your God. You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve.
  2. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
  3. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath 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 against your neighbor.
  9. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife.
  10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods.
I’ve highlighted the differences. As you can see, the Catholics:

a) removed the Second Commandment (in purple),
b) in order to make up for this omission, they divided the Tenth Commandment (in green), and
c) changed the numbering of everything in between.

This division is totally nonsensical, given that the removed Second Commandment takes a whole verse (Exodus 20:4, Deuteronomy 5:8), while the artificially divided the Tenth Commandment verse goes as follows:

Exodus 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

The “wife” is squeezed between the “house” and the “manservant,” there is no way that she can be taken away and separated into a whole another commandment!

Although in Deuteronomy 5:21 the “wife” is listed before the “house,” it still is not a reason to divide a single verse into two different commandments.

I did a quick search of this blasphemous difference on the internet and it looks like it is St. Augustine’s fault. Apparently, Lutherans follow the same false version as Catholics.

I guess that explains all of the miraculous images of Mary etc – they simply wiped out the part of the Ten Commandments about making images!
