Evangelist Ray Comfort (wrongly) claims the Catholic Church is selling its followers short.

According to Comfort, the Ten Commandments, as transcribed in the Catholic bible, are different from those that appear in the King James translation, in that the Catholic version does not include the prohibition on graven images.

Editor’s note: Mr. Comfort is a Protestant evangelist who fails to understand that every jot and tittle of the old law (in the Greek, “iota”) including all of the the original 10 Commandments, was perfectly fulfilled and set aside by Jesus Christ, when Jesus fulfilled all things, and gave us the (all new) New Covenant, in his blood.

If Jesus had not done so, then we Christians would all have been “stuck” under the curse of the old law until the end of time … unredeemed and unreconciled with God … just like the Jews and the Muslims.

Under the awesome and virtually unrestricted powers granted to the Catholic Church alone, by Jesus Christ (including but not limited to “Binding and Loosing … on Earth and in Heaven) the newly established, early 1st century Catholic Church … shortly decided to re-adapt and reaffirm the Commandments … in a way that was fully compatible with the new law of grace and mercy in Jesus Christ, on which we New Covenant Christians are uniquely empowered to faithfully rely.

That’s why the Ten Commandments of the Catholic Church differ from those listed in the Old Testament … why Protestant Bibles don’t match up with Catholic ones … and why the old prohibition against “graven images” no longer exists.

But since Mr. Comfort is willingly ignorant of such things, and prefers to depend only on his extremely limited personal understanding of authentic Christian theology and the sacred scriptures, he instead chooses to criticize the teachings of the only church that was ever founded, authorized, empowered and eternally guaranteed by Jesus Christ … for the purpose of our salvation … the Catholic Church.

Such are the errors of heretics and apostates everywhere, no matter how good their intentions!
