Christians Violate the First Three Commandments by Their Beliefs
1. You shall have no other gods before me
Believing Jesus is God in the flesh is a flagrant violation of this commandment. It is another god. Jesus is an imaginary god who is merely a character in a fable. How about God the Father??? and the Holy Spirit??? They are also Gods according to the Christians. And to say it is the mystery of the Trinity is just being dumb but acting like you are intelligent.
2. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Having a Cross, if it is a three dimensional object, is a graven image, is a flagrant violation of this commandment.
The Catholics excel with this violation by having statutes of the Saints and Virgin Mary and especially Jesus hanging on the cross.
3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
Saying about a character in a fable ... "Jesus is Lord" ... "Jesus is God in the flesh" ... is demeaning the name of God. How about god the Father??? How about the Holy Ghost??? Vain also means stupid.
Jewish Listings of Commandments
For some reason the Jewish listing of the first commandment is this;
1. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
I don't see any commandment in that sentence. Then to make sure there is ten commandments they leave out the commandment concerning graven images. ... ???
The commandments are found in two locations of the Old Testament; Exodus 20:2-17 and Deuteronomy 5:6-21. They don't line up perfectly, but when reading both locations it is clear that the bringing out of Egypt is not a commandment and the graven images verses are a commandment.
Notice how the Catholics didn't list the commandment prohibiting graven images. They know people love graven images and will follow those who have them.
