Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

How Many Commandments are There?

"Sorry fellow atheists, I have to defend the Lutherans and Catholics. They don't treat women as simple property. For them the 9th Commandment is 'You shall not covet your neighbors wife'. All the property stuff follows in the 10th. That's when you get if you use the Ten Commandments from Deuteronomium (sic) 5,6–21, instead of those from Exodus." Anna Sethe

The Roman Catholic "Ten" Commandments are actually only nine. They deleted the Second Commandment--the one that says not to create an image and bow down to it, and then they split the Tenth, no doubt hoping that no one would notice. You (and millions of others) didn’t. If you don't believe me, study the Vatican website for yourself:


Exodus 20:2-17 and Deuteronomy 5:7-21 are the same Ten Commandments.

I have mentioned before that when I ask most Roman Catholics if they are "Christians," they almost always say "No, I’m a Catholic." They make a difference between the two. If you study the teachings of the Roman church you will see that there are many differences between what the Bible says, and what Catholicism says. That’s why it's good for people to read the Bible so that they can see the difference.

Read what I have said again, if you would. There is nothing anti-Catholic. It is not Catholic-bashing. It is just the facts as they stand.

The issues that many dislike about religion are often addressed in Scripture. Take the time to study the Bible (particularly the New Testament) and you will find that you are not alone in your objections against the hypocrisy of religion.
