Candy at Keeping the Home has brought up the 10 commandments and how in her opinion (since she cites no source) the RCC "eliminated" a commandment. In fact, it is the PROTESTANTS who eliminated a commandment, not the RCs, not the Lutherans nor the Orthodox.
The 1st Commandment as known by the Jewish people, and therefore as Jesus knew it is:
I. I am the Lord thy God.
Where is that one on Candy's list???? Ohhhhhhh, it's in the "preface" and no longer part of the commandments.
Take at look at the chart on Wikipedia. Take at look at Candy's chart here.
Seems to me that "God's 10 Commandments" should include all ten even if they differ in division.
And as for the "...they can now justify praying to Mary,..." etc etc. What's the source? Where is the smoking gun?
