Would it surprise you to know that going to church on Sunday is a violation of a Commandment? Cooking or going out to
eat on Sunday is a violation. Mowing the lawn or taking the children to a playground on Sunday is a violation. Would it
surprise you to know the punishment is stoning to death?

Would it surprise you to know that the main stories in the Bible are about the history of 8 generations of Abraham's
family who violated the commandments according to the "Greek translation" that is used today? The focus is on
condemning Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Levi, Jochbed, Aaron, Eleazar and Phinehas as well as the Jewish God.

Chapter Ten: Latin Ten Commandments

There is not a Christian alive that would actually want to live by the rules in the Old Testament or want them enacted into
law if they knew what they represented. Most Christians believe the Ten commandments are proof of the Christian
influence on American government without having any understanding of their true meaning or even who wrote them and
why. The reality is that the Ten Commandments are a contradiction in semantics. Why would the religious politicians be
interested in forcing these particular commandments on non-believers if they didn’t want to kill the people who violated
them as commanded by their God? Plus, those ten are only a minor fraction of the six hundred and thirteen

Yes, there are six hundred and thirteen Commandments and rules of the Lord in the Christian Bible and no way to
comply with them. The Roman Catholic Church thought that was simply too many laws for simple Christians to
comprehend or comply with without a fight. Yes, most religious authorities have always thought Christians were simple
peasants with no curiosity or need for the truth. The claim is that God only gave Moses Ten Commandments. So --- who
created the other six hundred and three laws for the Jewish religion and why did they?

The real question is why would Christian Church leaders promote even the Ten Commandments attributed to Moses,
rather than the Two Commandments attributed to Jesus, after Jesus said you are Gods? “Jesus said unto him, Thou
shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great
commandment.  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments
hang all the law and the prophets (Matthew 22:37-40).”

Timothy warns that many teachers neither understand the laws or what they affirm. Timothy was right, the law is good, if
leaders use it lawfully, “Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; (1 Timothy 1:71”).

For a major part of Christian history, the Roman Catholic Pope has been God to the Western World. The graven image
of Jesus nailed to a cross served as a warning that anyone who crossed the church in any way, or attempted to read
and understand the Bible, would be put to death. Killing someone to save their soul was common practice until the age
of enlightenment when the churches quit burning heretics at the stake for challenging the power of Rome and
translating the Bible.

The various Ten Commandments have been shortened for simple Christian gentiles who might be concerned they are
worshipping the Jewish God. The first Latin Commandment is especially important when you consider the New
Testament statement of Jesus in John 10:34-35: “Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods,
unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;”But Jesus was not the first to make that
statement. He quoted Psalms 82:6, “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most high.”

What we have to keep in mind is that the Ten Commandments are not really about God. They are part of the Greek
fable created some twenty-five hundred years ago to placate Jewish captives in places conquered by Alexander. It is
clear the Greeks played up the belief that they were brought by God to punish the Jews for some unknown sin -- and the
Greeks had a guaranteed perfect translation of the Jews own religious documents to prove the Jews were too stubborn
or evil, to listen to their own God.
