The original “thou shalt not steal” has become “prosper with a clear conscience”.
And the lengthy “thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain” becomes “take God seriously”.
Using short, simple language interspersed with slang, the new rules have now been released on a DVD called “just10 for churches”, aimed at providing guidance.
The Reverend Paul Roberts, 54, vicar of St John the Evangelist in Old Coulsdon, Surrey, which dates back to 1210 AD, is among those using the new commandments.
He said: “It’s basically a way of presenting the Ten Commandments to help people connect with them in a positive way.
“Rather than just seeing them as a list of things you shouldn’t do, it is meant to help people live as God intended for our good.
The religious rules, which Christians believe were etched onto tablets by God and given to Moses, have been modified to use up-to-date language and principles.
Inspired by last year’s riots, the new vows include “manage your anger”, “know God” and “catch your breath” and are understood to be used in more than 600 churches in Britain.

In the last days people shall mock the Word of God, and start to distribute doctrines taught by demons.
We are living in a World, where spiritual snakes call them selves priests and pastors.
Jesus the Messiah told us: Watch out.
The great apostasy and falling away in on. Only if you are willing to read the Bible, you will understand the lawgiver your life shall reflect. Jesus the Messiah told us not to mess up the 10 commandments, but to rather up hold His teachings.
To change the Word of God is a grave sin. If you lead people into sinful acts, it would be better if you had a millstone around your neck.
“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Since the NIV has a liberal and not accurate translation of this verse, I will use New King James version. The key word missing in the NIV is “sin”.
