Catholics Remove The Second Commandment

Exodus 20:4-5, “Thou shalt not make unto 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 water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to 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.” Acts 13:10, “And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?”

This is unbelievable! How low will the Catholics stoop in order to deceive their followers? No wonder the Bible warns us about false prophets who creep into the Church, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men (Mark 7:6-13), having their conscience seared with a hot iron (hard-hearted) and teaching doctrines of devils (1st Timothy 4:1-3).

Kindly said, the Roman Catholic Church is straight from the pits of Hell. I say this kindly as a friend who cares for your soul. Oh, how I wish the one billion members of Roman Catholicism cared MORE about truth and principle, than about family and relationships. That's what has cursed Catholics, that is, family tradition. Since grandma was a devout Roman Catholic, and since uncle Joe is a Catholic, and since cousin Janet is a Catholic—that makes it next to impossible for a son or daughter to go become a born-again Christian who doesn't need religion. From the cradle-to-the-casket—the Vatican has a religious package for you!

Here is the SECOND COMMANDMENT from the inspired King James Bible:
Exodus 20:4-5, “Thou shalt not make unto 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 water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to 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.”
Now here are the Roman Catholic's TEN COMMANDMENTS (this image is from the "Catholic To The Max" website):


The Wicked Pagan Incomplete Catholic 'Ten Commandments'

Do you see how the Catholic cult completely REMOVED God's Second Commandment which forbids making graven images and bowing to them? This is the sin of idolatry!!! Catholics (both Orthodox and Roman) are IDOLATERS!!!


Wicked Idolaters!!!

As you can see, the Catholic church has some very good reasons for getting rid of these Scriptures, which forbid bowing to statues. Notice in the Holy Bible, that even bowing is a sin!!! Where did the Second Commandment go not to bow to idols? Do you see how evil and sneaky the Vatican is? They totally removed the 2nd Commandment from the Bible which forbids BOWING to statues and idols!!! Instead, they've buried it in their Catholic Catechism out of sight for worshippers to see. Hence, when the Catholic Church posts their Ten Commandments, the second is gone, gone, gone! No wonder they worship devils through idols! God's curse is upon the house of Roman Catholicism, just as God's curse is upon Bob Jones University for falsely worshipping the false idol of Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation).

Since the Catholics eliminated the 2nd Commandment, it threw the Catechism's list of commandments out of whack (in comparison to the biblical Ten Commandments). The fact that the Vatican had to fabricate something for the 9th Commandment, clearly evidences that something is very wrong. Woe unto the Catholic Church and their false plan of salvation! Sacramental salvation is a road to Hell forever.

The old sinful man cannot be changed, educated, rehabilitated or reformed. You need the new birth, that is, a spiritual birth—by receiving Christ's payment for your sins on the cross. The Gospel is defined in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 as Christ's DEATH, BURIAL and RESURRECTION. If you receive the Gospel as payment for YOUR SINS, then you are saved. 

Please notice that they've removed the 2nd commandment which forbids anyone from “bowing” to graven images. It's clearly obvious that the Catholic Church is trying to hide their sin of idolatry. There is NO biblical teaching to honor Mary nor the dead saints by bowing to their idols. God strictly forbids bowing to the likeness of any person or any thing, whether in Heaven or in the earth. Exodus 20:4-5, “Thou shalt not make unto 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 water under the earth: Thou SHALT NOT BOW DOWN thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God.”

In the Catholic Catechism (part 3) you'll read the following words of blasphemy...
2132 - The Christian veneration of images is not contrary to the first commandment which proscribes idols. Indeed, "the honor rendered to an image passes to its prototype," and "whoever venerates an image venerates the person portrayed in it."[70] The honor paid to sacred images is a "respectful veneration," not the adoration due to God alone:
That is what Catholic men teach; but it's not what God says, “THOU SHALT NOT BOW DOWN THYSELF TO THEM.”

First of all, not bowing to a graven image is the 2nd command, not the first. The evil men who wrote the preceding Catholic Catechism deceitfully split the 10th commandment into two, to make up for the missing 2nd commandment. Why are there now two commandments telling us not to covet? It seems mighty strange don't you think? It's obvious what the Devil has done here. You can't just eliminate the 2nd Commandment!

Second, the quoted passage I have given you from the Catholic Catechism is blasphemy. God clearly warns us in Exodus 20:4-5 NOT to make unto ourselves ANY graven images.

Catholics attempt to justify their idolatry by comparing what they do to the brazen serpent in the Wilderness in Moses' time. The children of Israel had murmured (complained) so much that God decided to judge them with fiery serpents. 16,000 Israelites had already died and Moses pleaded with the Lord to spare Israel. God told Moses to fabricate a serpent made of brass, to hold it up before the Jews, and tell them to look unto the serpent to live. That serpent symbolized Jesus Christ, Who became as sin to save us.

This is why we read in John 3:14-15, "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life." Carefully notice that the brazen serpent was God's idea, not Moses. God never told us ANYWHERE in the Word of God to make a statue of anyone nor anything. The Israelites were instructed to “look” to the serpent (which pictured Christ) so they could live. The people were NOT instructed to bow, honor, nor pray to the brazen serpent (statue).

It is sinful for Catholics to attempt to justify their idolatry by taking the incident of the brazen serpent out of context. The entire focus of the brazen serpent is to LOOK TO JESUS TO LIVE. Isaiah 45:22, " Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else." It is a sin to look to Mary.

The Catholics can devilishly call their idolatry "Respectful Veneration" if they want to, but it's a direct violation of the 2nd Commandment (which they don't have in Catholicism). Anything can be justified if one is willing to twist the truth far enough. The FACT of the matter is that neither Jesus, nor any of the Apostles, elevated Mary in any capacity. Yet Catholics have created a monstrosity of adoration toward Mary, refusing to obey the Scriptures. Jesus Christ is magnified in the Word of God, not Mary. A standard Rosary contains 53 Hail Mary's. It is sinful idolatry.

The next time you go to Mass, watch the priest when he prays and you will see that every single word he speaks is read from a piece of paper. There is no heartfelt sincerity or communication with God. It is all formalized religion, preplanned and prewritten, and God is not worshipped from men's hearts as He should be. Matthew 15:7,8, "Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me."

Prayer should NEVER be read from a piece of paper, which is really not prayer at all. Catholics recite the SAME dead words over and over and over. I believe most Catholic people are sincere—hearing the pretty music and bells, seeing the beauty of religion and a magnificent worship building, hearing about Jesus' death and resurrection—but what they fail to realize is that Catholicism officially teaches that a person MUST do good works, get water baptized, go to Mass, keep all the Seven Sacraments, and become a member of the Catholic Church in order to get to Heaven.

The Word of God teaches you just need to acknowledge your guilt of sin and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to be forgiven. There is NO religion involved, which is very difficult for some people to grasp, because they were brought up in a religious family. The only work which we must do to be saved is to believe on Christ, John 6:29, “Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” Salvation is not found in ANY religion; but in a Person—the Lord Jesus Christ!

Note: The teaching not to bow to statues is found BURIED in the Catholic Catechism, but it's avoided like the Black Plague, and is not mentioned when priests or Catholic speakers recite the Ten Commandments. It is avoided for good reason—because it is an indictment against their idolatry! Catholics DO bow to all manner of statues. If you ask any Catholic to quote the Ten Commandments to you, they'll never mention anything about not bowing to statues or idols (because that's the heart of their religious). They bow to Mary. They bow to Our Lady Of Fatima. They bow to idols of patron saints at home.
“Thou shalt not make unto 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 water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God...” —Exodus 20:4-5
