Why? Well it’ll become obvious when you look at the evidence. Here is a screen-capture from this site: http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/command.htm
I hope you can read that all – it’s full size here. Now go with me in your bible, and look at Deuteronomy 5:6-21 which is shown there in the second column – I’ll quote it here from the KJV
Deuteronomy 5:6-21 King James Version (KJV)
6 I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me.
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,
10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
11 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
12 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee.
13 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:
14 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.
15 And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the Lord thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.
16 Honour thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
17 Thou shalt not kill.
18 Neither shalt thou commit adultery.
19 Neither shalt thou steal.
20 Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbour.
21 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour’s wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour’s house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
In the second column you can see that the catholic church’s own website has sought to diminish the significance of the repetition from Exodus 20:4-6 in Deuteronomy 5:8-10 by simply leaving it out of the second column.
God wants you to make no images. Let alone worship them. The image of Yeshua on the cross is a dreadful image – He is our Risen King! He sits on the throne at the right hand of the Father! The image of Mary again is in breach of this commandment. We must also remember that Mary was a mortal woman – worshipping her, or even so much as talking to her or praying to her is to sin! We are not to talk to the dead!
Now let’s look at commandment number three.
Remember to keep holy the LORD’s Day, says the catholic church.
God says, in His word: Remember the sabbath day to keep it holy.
The sabbath is the seventh day of the week, Saturday.
This site has some wonderful information on this change from Saturday to Sunday by the Catholic church: Link
I quote from there:
“The Sunday…is purely a creation of the Catholic Church.”American Catholic Quarterly Review, January 1883.
“Sunday…is the law of the Catholic Church alone…” American Sentinel (Catholic), June 1893.
“Sunday is a Catholic institution and its claim to observance can be defended only on Catholic principles…From beginning to end of Scripture there is not a single passage that warrants the transfer of weekly public worship from the last day of the week to the first.” Catholic Press, Sydney, Australia, August 1900.
It is time to get under the protection of the Law of Moses – to take back your faith from organisations which shepherd you away from what is right in God’s eyes!
I hope this causes you to Selah! Pause and calmly think of that!
God Bless you
