UK Churches rewrites the 10 commandments

The original “thou shalt not steal” has become “prosper with a clear conscience”.

To listen and obey this kind of deception is a huge mistake, with eternal consequences.

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.

My comment:

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.

 Matthew 18:6
“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”.

  1. Yes–the new NIV is poison. They tried putting out that version about five years ago but it was a failure due to the many protests against it from evangelicals. So I guess they figured they’d try it again now that evangelicals have slipped far enough into apostasy to accept it. Wonder what’s next on their publishing agenda–a “gay” Bible? :-(

    I stopped buying or using anything from Zondervan (who owns the rights to the NIV through the International Bible Society) was acquired by Harper San Fransisco (which is owned by Harper Collins, which is, in turn, owned by Rupert Murdoch). I figured that everything from Zondervan would ultimately become polluted by the globalist (read one-world-religion) agenda of its new owner. It seems that my fears were well-founded, as at least one of Zondervan’s pet writers is Rob Bell (who tried to do away with hell this year in his book, Love Wins). I haven’t kept up with many of Zondervan’s products of late, but it would not surprise me if most of their other titles were similar pieces of junk.

  2. Correction: Rob Bell’s book, Love Wins is published by Harper One (a division of Harper Collins). Zondervan used to publish Bell’s books but maybe this last one was too heretical for them to risk publishing it. But I think you can see the handwriting on the wall and that Rupert Murdoch’s agenda is the hand that is writing (with help from Satan no doubt). I would like to think that the editors at Zondervan would get some backbone and resist their boss’s agenda. But I suspect their decisions are much more likely to be made by how much money they can make than any concern for orthodoxy. Since it got the seal of approval by some evangelical “big guns” according to this puff piece, I suspect it will be widely accepted: http://www.cbmw.org/Journal/Vol-2-No-3/NIV-Controversy

    Yuck!
