I have studied the catechism, and not to make mistakes, I am seeking from reliable sources; in Catholic books, written by priests. In one of my searches I bought a book on basic catechism, because I wanted to understand the basic teachings of the Catholic Church, so I bought the "Way of Faith - Tour itinerary preparation for adult baptism and confirmation of the Eucharist," authored by two priests: Brustolin and Lelo, 2011. In this book, on page 97, is written as follows:
1 - Love God above all things;
2 - Do not take your holy name in vain;
3 - Save Sundays and feasts;
4 - Honor your father and mother;
5 - Do not kill;
6 - Do not sin against chastity;
7 - Do not steal;
8- Do not lie;
9 - Do not want a woman (man) of near;
10 - Do not want the things of others.
What was my surprise when I found amazed that the "ten commandments" described here were different from what was written in the Holy Bible. That even the ten commandments were changed! How so? It is not forbidden by God to make changes in the biblical texts? So why are taught the 10 commandments differently than it’s in the Bible? Let's see what the biblical text says:
Nothing adds to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. Deuteronomy 4:2
The law and the testimony! If they speak not according to this word, never see the dawn.
Take the Ten Commandments given to Moses, as is the book of Exodus, chapter 20:
1Then God spoke all these words, saying:
2 I am the Lord thy God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, the house of bondage.
(1) 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
(2) 4 shall not make for yourself a carved image or any likeness of what is over the heavens, nor under the earth nor the waters under the earth. 5 Not bow down thyself 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. 6 And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and those who keep my commandments.
(3) 7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
(4) 8 Remember the Sabbath day to sanctify it. 9 Seis days work, and do yourobra.10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant nor thy maidservant, northy cattle, nor thy stranger that you are within thy gates. 11 That in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them, and rested the seventh day: therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath and sanctified.
(5) 12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
(6) 13 Thou shalt not kill.
(7) 14 Do not commit adultery.
(8) 15 Thou shalt not steal.
(9) 16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
(10) 17 You shall not covet your neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is thy neighbor.
Consider: Where did the second commandment, the book of Deuteronomy, which forbids making graven images, bow down and serve? Where did "keep Sundays and feast days"? The fourth commandment says that the Lord's day is the sabbath, but the Catechism says is that we should keep Sunday. But it was God who blessed and sanctified the sabbath(Genesis 2:2,3)? Does this commandment was repealed? By whom? What are these parties? Where did the Ninth Commandment: Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor? It has also been revoked? Then you can bear false witness? Frankly I find this very serious thing to adapt scripture to certain interests, so that they are in accordance with the doctrine. The Bible itself says:
You nullify the word of God through the tradition that you sent them. And you do many things like that. Mark 7:13
I honestly prefer to stick with what is written in the word of the Lord. Check in your bible. Study the word of God.
...But Jesus answered and said unto them, You err, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. Matthew 22:29
Beware that no one takes you captive through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ: Colossians 3:8
