[quote=homer]Enough said !!! Look people are not idiots as you and your church think. 99% of Catholics that I know (and beleive me they are many) do not know about the second commandment, and why you ask? Because the Catholic church doesn’t want people to know about it for it is doing exactly the opposite of it. What a coincidence that second commandment was canceled!
In fact, what you said doesn’t make sens at all. Read it again and laugh.
Enjoy your new numbering system!
Sorry if I seemed aggressive but the fact that the Catholic church is re-numbering the Ten Commandments is just unacceptable.
The Catholic Church has always numbered the commandments the same way, it was the Protestants that renumbered them. The first commandment, “I am the Lord your God, you shall have no other gods but me,” automatically precludes the worshiping of images, so to have a separate commandment that forbids idol worship is redundant. If you are worshipping an idol, you are automatically violating the first commandment. The reason that the covetousness commandments are separated into two are to keep in line with commandments 6 and 7.
The 6th Commandment forbids adultery, the 9th commandment forbids us to even desire our neighbors spouse.
The 7th commandment forbids stealing, the 10th commandment forbids us from even desiring our neighbors property.
