    The Jews and the Protestants have the 2nd commandment being dont bow to idols of any kind.

    And so my point is why is that the catholics took it out and made number 9 as 9 and 10?

    I once went to a cathalic church, and thay had like a statute of Mary, then everyone bowed down to it. I could never understand that. then the minister said somthing in anther language, and everyone in the whole church stood up on their feet fast, by the time I stood up, everyone was sitting down, and I was the only one standing lol. I dont know much about them, but it seems like they put religion in front of the Lord

    Edit: BTW RBHill, Nice to see you, LTNS

    hmmmm, I am Catholic, (and yes we do pray to/ask for help from Mary, but do not actually WORSHIP her) when they "bowed" to her, was it during the Profession of Faith?? Because if so, we merely bow to amazement/thanks to God for creating her free from sin.

    That's true. Now can you elaborate on your point, which was something other than the explanation that various religions view the Commandments differently?

    I was just wondering: does "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife" mean you can covet his sister?

    catholics are confusing. the only catholics i know are irish (and therefore are, you know, hardcore catholics 😉), but apparently at one of their church's they pray solely to their ancestors(!). also, my uni's CU is almost completly protestant. the CU exists to "Make Christ's light
    shine in the student world". what's so wrong with that? However, Catholic "Chistians" (it's more those people who go to chapel each week that critise us, not those who actually love God. if that makes sense...) seem to find that a bad thing. i was gonna start a big rant about why they fault us and how silly it is, but have deleted it as it's not really overly productive.

    basically, they're confusing. IMO, many are just doing it for show. Only about half the regular attenders at our University chapel call themselves Christains...but then, since when did calling yourself a Christain make you one?

    That would be contrary to good hospitality (cf. Sodom & Gomorrah).

    RB, taking a little different turn with this, do you feel that protestants are guilty of idol worship in the same or similar way as Catholics?

    Let me tell you where I'm coming from, RB. I think the silence of the protestant church with respect to Pat Robertson is another form of idol worship. Where the hell is an Old Testament prophet when you need?

    Before they became a Christian, yes they were guilty of Idol worship.

    What RB Hill is basically saying is:

    The 10 Commandments, as originally "numbered" are:

    1. No other gods
    2. No graven images
    3. No taking the name of the Lord in vain
    4. Remember the Sabbath
    5. Honor your mother and father
    6. Shall not murder
    7. Shall not commit adultery
    8. Shall not Steal
    9. Bear false witness
    10. Covet (neighbor's house, wife, etc).

    The controversy involving the 10 Commandments and the Catholic Church is that the Catholic Church basically took out the second commandment, moved all of the others up one, and then split what was originally the '10th' commandment into a 9th Commandment about not coveting your neighbors wife, and a 10th commandment about not coveting your neighbor's house and other possessions.
