Interesting book I just got...

Subject: Interesting book I just got...

I just bought a book (out of curiosity as to what the enemy is up to) titl
"The AntiChrist 666", published by a company called TEACH Services, which 
basically propaganda claiming that all pagan religions are inventions of S
and that all the artifacts of ancient civilizations such as the Maya and t
Aztecs are not really ancient, but recently-made objects meant to deceive 
faithful.  It also claims that the Roman Catholic Church is the seat of th
AntiChrist [I AM inclined to agree with that... ;)] The whole text would b
funny if it weren't so downright scary!

But the point I really wanted to make was that this book states that the T
Commandments given in the King James (i.e. Protestant) Bible is NOT the sa
me as
those given in the Roman Catholic Bible.  I was raised Catholic, and am no
w in
recovery [:)], but I never really noticed the difference in the two until 
read through this little book.  Here are the Ten Commandments as given in 
King James Bible, in Exodus 20:3-17:

1.  Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
2.  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image... (abbreviated for sak
e of
3.  Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain...
4.  Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy...
5.  Honour thy father and thy mother...
6.  Thou shalt not kill.
7.  Thou shalt not commit adultery.
8.  Thou shalt not steal.
9.  Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
10. Thou shalt not covet... anything that is thy neighbour's.

The Catholic version, the one I grew up with, is this:

1.  I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me.
2.  Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
3.  Remember thou keep holy the Sabbath day.
4.  Honour thy father and thy mother.
5.  Thou shalt not kill.
6.  Thou shalt not commit adultery.
7.  Thou shalt not steal.
8.  Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
9.  Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife.
10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's goods.

Looks like the Catholics dropped the original second commandment as stated
Exodus so that they could have their statues of Jesus, Mary, the saints, e
and they split up the original tenth commandment to fill the quota. Just g
to show how "organized religion" is not really far from "organized crime".

I'll stay Pagan, thanks!
