The 10 commandments of God, which Moses received from two stone tablets, are also known as the moral laws. However, the 10 commandments presented today in the Catholic and Evangelical churches are not the original, biblical requirements, but rather rather idiosyncratic modifications.

Times and laws changed with “announcement”

10 Commandments

The 10 Commandments written in stone are unchangeable

Who doesn’t know these? The 10 Commandments that Moses received on Mount Sinai, written on stone tablets by God himself. These 10 commandments, also known as moral laws, essentially have an “eternity clause”. This alone symbolizes their setting in stone.

That alone symbolizes their setting in stone. The admonition to observe these laws extends from the handing over of the two stone tablets (Exodus chapter 20) to the last chapter of the Bible, Revelation 22, 14: “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” (in Alexandrian or Gnostic Bible translations it says “Blessed are they who wash their clothes”).

The 10 Commandments of God have never been abolished, even if this may be repeatedly propagated in connection with the “Old Covenant” and “New Covenant”. A blatant misdirection. The claim that commandments have been abolished could at best be justified by Bible quotations taken out of context and presented in isolation and excessive interpretations. But the moral laws were never abolished and such a passage simply does not exist in Holy Scripture.

Daniel predicted this counterfeit

However, the corruption of God’s 10 Commandments did not come as a surprise. Already Daniel reported about a “fourth beast” (Roman Empire) in Daniel Chapter 7. An initially small horn emerged from this animal. This horn grew up to represent a ruler who emerged from the former Roman Empire. This will be completely different than its predecessors. “Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.”

This horn “shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” The horn of the fourth beast is clearly the papacy (Info).

Arbitrary justifications

The University of Augsburg presents such an example of the flimsy explanation of the modified or falsified commandments with the attempted explanation of why the Sabbath commandment should no longer be relevant.

Although it is correctly stated here that a distinction is made between (unchangeable) moral laws and (changeable) ceremonial laws, the following explanation is difficult:

“The divine commandments are divided into moral commandments and ceremonial commandments. While the moral commandments are inherent in human nature and therefore immutable and valid for all men of all times and are recognizable in conscience as valid without revelation, ceremonial commandments are to be specially ordained by God and can be known only by revelation; they can later be modified or canceled.

The Sabbath commandment, along with the prohibition of images and many other Old Testament regulations outside of the Ten Commandments (e.g., food laws and commandments about other feast days apart from the Sabbath), are among the ceremonial commandments appropriate to the pre-Christian Old Covenant, but modified with the coming of Christ could and had to be.”

Moral law simply becomes ceremonial law

Here the author simply claims that the Sabbath commandment is part of the ceremonial law. In doing so, he ignores the fact that this 4th commandment is undoubtedly part of the laws written in stone, i.e. moral laws. This also applies to the 2nd commandment (ban on images).

His logic: The first commandment is moral law, the second commandment is ceremonial law, the third commandment is moral law, the fourth commandment is ceremonial law, and all subsequent commandments are moral law. Because the fourth commandment (Sabbath commandment, Genesis 20:8-11) was a ceremonial law, it could also be changed to a “holiday” (now “Sunday”) in order to then be declared a moral law again become.

This is completely absurd, purely arbitrary and cannot be justified. The author cannot justify this claim either. He simply puts forward this theory without any foundation. At this point the rest of the “list” can already be thrown into the trash, as further derivations are based solely on this untenable claim.

The fatal thing: ignoring the biblical Sabbath commandment according to the 4th commandment. The sanctification of Sunday as a substitute will become a main topic.

Augsburg – A city of Reformation

Augsburg played a central role in the Reformation. A circumstance that still has an impact today. Such historically relevant centers were particularly intensively and “sustainably” targeted by the so-called Counter-Reformation. The “Religious Peace of Augsburg” (1555) was already a lazy compromise in favor of the Roman Church. Educating people was an effective weapon in the fight against Protestantism and began soon after the “activation” of the Jesuit order in 1540 (Info). The doubtful success of these measures can also be seen in the thought pattern of the “theologians” based in Augsburg.

So-called liberal theology (regardless of whether it is Catholic or Protestant) has only marginally anything in common with the Gospel as it is written. Today they only fulfill the role of accomplices in leading people away from the Word of God and the true faith.

Sabbath is the sign of God’s authority

The Sabbath (the 7th day of the week, i.e. Saturday!) is a symbol of God’s authority. Already introduced after 6 days of creation as the 7th day of rest (Genesis 2:3). God sanctified this day. The Roman Church described the Sabbath as a “Jewish holiday” as early as the 4th century, which had no meaning for Christian communities. Sunday must be sanctified.

Calling the Sabbath an “exclusively Jewish holiday” is pure “arbitrariness” in view of the determination according to Exodus 20:8 (Info). Christians celebrate Sunday (“Sun Day”) because this is the day of Jesus’ resurrection, according to one argument. This may be. But does this simply abolish the Sabbath? Not at all.

Jesus himself kept the Sabbath, his disciples kept the Sabbath and there is no passage in the Bible that could indicate that the 4th commandment was abolished – (Sabbath in the New Testament).

Paul once met with the other disciples on the first day of the week and “broke bread with them.” This statement is all too often used as a justification for supposedly abolishing the Sabbath. “Breaking bread” is equated with Jesus’ statement at the Last Supper that this means “breaking His body (on the cross). But breaking bread was already an expression in the Old Testament for “sharing bread”, for offering or simply food.

For example in Isaiah 58:7: “Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?” (in the German Bible it says break bread). The supposed sanctification of Sunday by the disciples is therefore pure (desirable) interpretation. In general, something wrong doesn’t become right if you just hold on to it long enough and repeat it endlessly.

Sunday sanctification coupled with idolatry

The early abolition of the 2nd commandment (ban on images) by the Catholic Church is quickly explained by the fact that compliance with this law would otherwise mean having to forego the entire armada of “saint figures and icons” and their (death) veneration. There is also a whole range of rituals, ceremonies, dogmas, shock and storm prayers. Martin Luther described the Eucharist practiced on Sunday as “atrocious idolatry.”

The wafer is simply attributed to the body of Christ in order to then be venerated and eaten. This represents nothing other than eating things sacrificed to idols while simultaneously mocking Jesus Christ. Anyone who wants to prostrate themselves in front of a picture or a wooden or stone figure of a long-dead “saint” would be better off following Exodus Chapter 20, verses 4 to 6: “Thou shalt not make unto 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 water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to 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; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”
