The Law of God

THE LAW OF GOD


*The Law of God in the Old Testament

*The Law of God in the New Testament

*The Law of God as changed by the Papacy


MATTHEW 5:17-18

Jesus said: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."

Old Testament

New Testament

As Changed by the Papacy

I

Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.

 

I

Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve. Matthew 4:10

I

I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me.

 

II

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 showing mercy unto  thousands of them that love Me, and keep my commandments.

II

Little children, keep yourselves from idols... Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. 1 John 5:21; Acts 17:29

 

(It will be observed that the second commandment as found in the Bible is left out)

II

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.

 

III

Thou shalt not take  the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.

 

III

Honor your earthly masters, that the name of God and His doctrine be not blasphemed.

1 Timothy 6:1

III

Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day.

A Doctrinal Catechism (Catholic), page 174, has the following question and answer:

"Q. Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?"

"A. Had she not such power... she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for Saturday, the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority."

 

IV

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

IV

Pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day...

The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath: therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath... For He spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, and  God  did rest the seventh day from all His works... There remaineth therefore a rest [keeping of a Sabbath] to the people of God. For he that is entered into His rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from His... For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth.  Matthew 24:20; Mark 2:27-28; Hebrew 4:4,9-10, margin; Colossians 1:16

 

IV

Honor thy father and thy mother.

V

Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

V

Honor thy father and thy mother. Matthew 19:19

V

Thou shalt not kill.

 

VI
