Bob Stanley explains who really changed the Bible and revised The Ten Commandments

Just Who Did Change the Ten Commandments?

Here is an actual question I received, written by a Seventh Day Adventist: “NIV, KJV, NKJV, RSV etc. have all God’s Commandments intact. HOWEVER, the catholic catechism has totally deleted the 2nd commandment, and split the 10th into 2 to make up 10 commandments. They CHANGED Gods Law!!!!”

Now let us just see who really are the ‘they’ who ‘CHANGED God’s Law’…

Protestant sources of their charges that the Catholic Church changed
the Ten Commandments…

  1. KJV…..(King James) first appeared on the scene in 1611, a product of Protestantism.
  2. NIV…..(New International Version) first appeared on the scene in 1978.
  3. NKJV…(New King James Version) first appeared on the scene in 1982.
  4. RSV…..(Revised Standard Version) first appeared on the scene in 1946

Catholic sources of our defense to the baseless charges of Catholics
changing the Ten Commandments…

  1. Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) appeared on the scene in
  2. It lists the Ten Commandments as they were before Christ was born.
  3. NJB…first appeared on the scene in 1985. The NJB (New Jerusalem) supports the CCC.
  4. NAB…first appeared on the scene in 1970. The NAB (New American) supports the CCC.
  5. JB……first appeared on the scene in 1966. The JB (Jerusalem) supports the CCC.
  6. RSV-CE…first appeared on the scene in 1965. The RSV-CE (Revised Standard Version-Catholic Edition) supports the CCC.
  7. NCE…first appeared on the scene in 1954. The NCE (New Catholic Edition) supports the CCC.
  8. CE…first appeared on the scene in 1948. The CE (Confraternity Edition) supports the CCC.
  9. Challoner-Rheims…first appeared on the scene in 1749. The Challoner-Rheims supports the CCC.
  10. Douay-Rheims…first appeared on the scene in 1592-1609. The Douay-Rheims supports the CCC. Note that the date for this Bible predates any Protestant Bible by at least 2 years.
  11. The Latin Vulgate…first appeared on the scene in 404.
    The Latin Vulgate supports the CCC. Note that the date for this Bible predates any Protestant Bible by over 1200 years.
  12. The Septuagint…first appeared on the scene about 148 B.C..
    This is the Bible that was used by the Apostles. The Septuagint supports the CCC. Note that the date for this Bible predates any Protestant Bible by over 1700 years.

Now it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to show that the Ten Commandments
could not possibly have been changed by the Catholic Church which did
not even exist until 200 years after the Septuagint was written. Add
to that the fact that all Catholic Bibles, all the way back to 148 B.C.,
are in agreement, and yet Protestant Bibles which did not even appear on
the scene until 1611, list the commandments in the ‘different’ order.

How would you define the term “mystic”?

Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina

From a traditional Christian perspective, the definition of a mystic would be a person who is especially chosen by God to receive mystical gifts and graces, which are freely given to the individual by the express Will of God, and not through any special merit or choice of the individual who receives them.

Editor’s note: Some of the mystical gifts and graces can be very unusual, difficult to understand or appreciate and even, frightening. Also, beware of “fakes”!

Editor’s note: Unfortunately, there’s plenty more where this came from, at churches and basilicas all around the world. What are these guys (Church leaders) thinking? Or is this simply a reflection of their decrepit, modernist souls? And why do Catholics even allow this type of spiritual blight, in their places of worship?

Medjugorje apparitions remain controversial

Medjugorje: A Warning

Here’s a more positive treatment

Editor’s note: Those who make the trip seem to return, favorably impressed. But, the basic concept of the Blessed Virgin Mary appearing daily seems to be quite strange. The seers, the clergy and others involved also seem to have more than their share of serious issues.

Medjugorje remains a purely “private revelation” so no Catholic is bound to accept it. That said, many Catholics, in good conscience, choose to do so.

This writer remains undecided, but skeptical.

Today’s “Gem” from Bob Stanley’s “The Catholic Treasure Chest”: Bob explains (using both the OT and NT of the Bible) how the Papacy is 100% scriptural

…Keys have always been used as a symbol of power and authority for the Jews. He who has the key can open the locked door. He who has not the key remains locked out. The one who has the key has all authority over who enters through the locked door. If He shuts (locks), no one can open (unlock). If He opens (unlocks), no one can shut (lock).

“And to the angel of the Church at Philadelphia write: Thus says the Holy One, the True One, he who has the “Key of David”. he who opens and no one shuts, and who shuts and no one opens: I know thy works. Behold, I have caused a door to be opened before thee which no one can shut, for thou hast scanty strength, and thou hast kept My Word and hast not disowned My Name.” Rev 3:7-8

The “Key of David”, what is the significance?

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call My servant Eliakim the son of Helcias, and I will clothe him with thy Robe, and I will strengthen him with thy Sash, and will give thy Power (authority) into his hand; and he shall be as a FATHER (the word ‘Pope’ means ‘Father’) to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.

And I will lay the Key of the House of David (the symbol of primacy) upon his shoulder; and he shall open and none shall shut; and he shall shut and none shall open.

And I will fasten him as a peg in a Sure Place(the Papal Office), and he shall be for a Throne of glory to the house of his Father. And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his Fathers house, diverse kinds of vessels, every little vessel, from the vessels of cups even to every instrument of music.” Isaiah 22:20-24

“My servant” means “Faithful to GOD”. “Eliakim” means “GOD will establish”.

Here we have a figure who is faithful to GOD and someone whom GOD will exalt. In several verses in Scripture, whenever this “Eliakim” is mentioned, he is also shown to be “Over the Household”, 2Kings 18:18, 2Kings 18:37, 2Kings 19:2, Isaiah 36:3, Isaiah 36:22, Isaiah 37:2. In Isaiah 36:3, he is described as being “Over the House”.

The Pope is certainly “Faithful to GOD”, and he is “Over the House of GOD”, the visible Church on earth.

So what do we have here? We have an OFFICE, a SASH, a ROBE, a THRONE, a KEY, a PEG, and a SURE PLACE.

The House of David is the Davidic Kingdom. David is a figure of Christ.

The OFFICE is the Papacy, the Holy Father, the Pope, to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the House of Judah, (the Church), the Vicar of Christ, the Bishop of Rome, the successor of Saint Peter, the visible head of the Catholic Church on earth.

The SASH, The ROBE, the THRONE, and the KEYS are symbols of his authority.

The SASH is what separates the prime priest from the other priests, “Therefore, to the various expert workmen whom I have endowed with skill, you shall give instructions to make such vestments for Aaron as will set him apart for his sacred service as My priest. These are the vestments they shall make; a breastpiece , an ephod, a Robe, a brocaded tunic, a miter, and a SASH.” Ex 28:3-4.

“He (Aaron) shall wear the sacred linen “Tunic”, with the linen drawers next to his flesh, gird himself with the linen Sash and put on a linen Miter (the Pope wears a Miter).” Lev 16:3

The ROBE symbolizes his authority as The Bishop of Rome, the Supreme Pontiff, the High Priest of the Visible Church on earth.

“As an olive tree budding forth, and a cypress tree rearing itself on high, when he put on the ROBE of Glory, and was clothed with the perfection of POWER. When he went up to the Holy Altar, he honored the vesture of Holiness. And when he took the portions out of the hands of the priests, he himself stood by the Altar.

And about him was the ring of his brethren: and as the cedar planted in mount Libanus, and as branches of palm trees, they stood round about him, and all the sons of Aaron in their glory. And the Oblation of the Lord (the Holy Eucharist) was in their hands before all the Congregation (Church) of Israel. And finishing his service on the Altar, to honor the offering of the Most High King, he stretched forth his hand to make a libation, and offered the Blood of the grape (wine transformed into the Blood of Christ).” Sir 50:11-16

“Now therefore we make thee this day High Priest (Vicar of Christ) of thy nation, and that thou be called the King’s friend (and he sent them a Purple ROBE, and a CROWN OF GOLD (Miter)), and that thou be of one mind with us in our affairs, and keep friendship with us.” 1Macc 10:20

The THRONE is the Chair (Seat) of Saint Peter from which the Vicar of Christ proclaims to the whole world, infallible statements on faith and morals.

Moses, the Leader of GOD’s chosen people had a Seat of Authority. “The Scribes and the Pharisees have sat on the Chair of Moses.” Matt 23:2 “This Propitiatory (Mercy Seat) you shall then place on top of the Ark. In the Ark itself you are to put the Commandments which I will give you. There I will meet you and there, from above the Propitiatory, between the two cherubim on the Ark of the Commandments, I will tell you all of the commands that I wish you to give the Israelites (Ex-Cathedra).” Ex 25:20-22 “He took the Commandments and put them in the Ark; he placed poles alongside the Ark and set the Propitiatory upon it.” Ex 40:20

“…the Lord spoke to Moses and said to him, “Tell your brother Aaron that he is not to come whenever he pleases into the sanctuary, inside the veil, in front of the Propitiatory on the Ark; otherwise, when I reveal myself in a cloud above the Propitiatory, he will die (GOD will speak to His chosen Visible Leader on earth only, His Vicar).” Lev 16:2

“When Moses entered the Meeting Tent to speak with Him, he heard the voice addressing him from above the Propitiatory on the Ark of the Commandments, from between the two cherubim; and it spoke to him…(Ex-Cathedra)” Num 7:89

The Mercy Seat thus becomes the protector of the Ark and its contents. In the Ark were the Stone Tablets handed to Moses, Aaron’s staff, and the Manna from Heaven. These are prefigurements of the New Ark of the Covenant, the Blessed Virgin Mary, as she carried within her womb, the Word of GOD, the Power of GOD, and the Body of Christ, the Manna from Heaven.

The KEYS are symbolic of His Authority, and over the Binding and Loosening powers of sin, and as a symbol of discernment.

The PEG is symbolic in Hebrew tradition, as the main tent peg into which all other lines ran.

The SURE PLACE, of course, is The Vatican in Rome, the Papal Office.

“With him is wisdom and strength. He hath counsel (the Magisterium in conjunction with the Holy Spirit) and understanding (discernment). If he pull down, there is no man that can build up. If he shuts up a man, there is none that can open (Papal authority, Rome has spoken, the matter is settled).” Job 12:13-14

“And I say to thee, thou art Peter, and upon this ‘Rock’ I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give THEE the KEYS of the Kingdom of Heaven; and whatever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven, and whatever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in Heaven.” Matt 16:18-19

Jesus Christ addressed Peter and Peter only in these two verses. He gave Peter alone, the KEYS to the Kingdom of Heaven, and the power of “Binding and Loosening” of sins, or if you prefer, the “Sacrament of Reconciliation”.

Clearly, when Jesus addressed Peter only, and at the same time gave him a name change from Simon to Peter, he had appointed Peter as the “prime” Apostle.

Later in Matt 18:18, Jesus gave the power of “Binding and Loosening” to all of the Apostles.

After Jesus had risen from the dead, He appeared to all of the Apostles and again gave them the power of “Binding and Loosening” in John 20:22-23.

To further strengthen the “Primacy of Peter” Jesus addressed him only, in John 21:15-17, when He commanded him to “Feed My Sheep”. As another example, Jesus commanded Simon-Peter to strengthen his brethren in Luke 22:31-32.

Peter acknowledged his primacy, when at the Council of Jerusalem, he stood up and said, “Brethren, you know that in early days GOD made choice among us, that through MY mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the Gospel and believe.” Acts 15:7

Peter’s statement was singular in that the truth of the Gospel would come from the primacy of the Catholic Church, and that primacy is the Papacy.

“But if thy brother sin against thee, go and show him his fault, between thee and him alone. If he listen to thee, thou hast won thy brother. But if he do not listen to thee, take with thee one or two more so that on the word of two or three witnesses every word may be confirmed. And if he refuse to hear them, appeal to the CHURCH, but if he refuse to hear even the CHURCH, let him be to thee as the heathen and the publican. Amen I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound also in Heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed also in Heaven.” Matt 18:15-18

Fatima seer Sister Lucia: “Most definitely, the scapular and the Rosary are inseparable. The scapular is a sign of consecration to Our Lady.”

“Our Lady wants all to wear the scapular.” So declared Sister Lúcia to another two Carmelite priests interviewing her on the same subject a year later in 1950 on the feast of the Assumption.

“Can we be sure she (Our Blessed Mother) meant by her appearance dressed as Our Lady of Mount Carmel and holding the scapular that she wanted the scapular as part of the message?” questioned Carmelite Father Howard Rafferty.

“Yes,” Lúcia answered. “Now the Holy Father has already told this to the whole world, saying that the scapular is a sign of consecration to the Immaculate Heart. Nobody can disagree now.”

Francis publicly and literally contradicts the Catechism

This was his claim: “The faith has not been handed down from generation to generation as a set of ideas to be understood and followed, as a fixed and timeless code.”

Francis should study the Catechism of the Catholic Church 171. It declares that the Church preserves the faith handed down once and for all to the saints: “It is she who passes on from generation to generation the Apostles’ Creed.”

Editor’s note: Is the Pope Catholic?

Today’s Classic Book Selection: Abandonment To Divine Providence

“Let go and let God.” This popular phrase captures the essence of Father Jean-Pierre de Caussade’s 18th century treatise on trust, Abandonment to Divine Providence.

Do you doubt? Do you suffer? Are you anxious about the trials of life?

Father de Caussade offers the one sure solution to any spiritual difficulty: abandon yourself entirely to God by embracing the duties of your station in life.

With wisdom and gentleness he teaches how to practice complete submission to the will of God in every situation, whether we are beginners or seasoned travelers on the way of perfection.

True abandonment, he explains, is a trusting, peaceful, and childlike surrender to the guidance of grace.

Editor’s note: This is one of the most subversive, countercultural works that the world has ever seen, which makes it perfect reading for serious, faithful Catholics.

To live out what this volume promotes is a tremendous exercise in humility, which is something that God is known to very much appreciate.

An added bonus is that such an approach totally confounds the prideful, Evil One, who has no real understanding of true humility and hence, no defense against such “unfair” tactics.

Definitely a win-win!

This is not politics as usual.  This is evil.

The Supernatural, Saving Power of Jesus’ Name

Father Roger was just over five foot tall. A very spiritual priest, he was much involved in the healing ministry, exorcism and visiting prisons and mental hospitals.

He told me that one day he was walking down the corridor of a mental hospital when around the corner came a huge man–well over six foot tall and three hundred pounds. He was bellowing out blasphemies and was rushing straight for Roger brandishing a kitchen knife.

Roger stopped and said, “In the name of Jesus, drop the knife!”

The man halted. Dropped the knife and turned and walked away as meek as a lamb.

Today’s “Gem” from Bob Stanley’s “The Catholic Treasure Chest”: The Catholic Church is the world’s longest reigning, continuous government, of any kind

“Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?” John 2:19-20

This is an interesting verse, because from it we can calculate the approximate date of its happening. According to historical records of the time, the rebuilding of the Jewish temple was begun in 19 B.C.. Forty-six years later would bring the time up to about 27 A.D..

John chapter 2 is right at the beginning of the three years in which Jesus practiced His ministry. From this calculation, He founded His Church near the end of His ministry on earth three years later or about 30 A.D..

Jesus promised that His Church would last every day in every century until the end of time (Matthew 28:20, John 14:16-17, Ephesians 3:21), and that the gates of hell would not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18).

Now, what this means is that in the year 2030, the Church which Jesus Christ founded will be 2000 years old.

His Church is a living Church since it is the Body of Christ, and He is its Head (Ephesians 1:22-23). The Head of Christ cannot be separated from His Body, therefore He and His Church are one, and very much alive.

This is why Holy Scripture has said, “Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the Church of GOD.”(1Corinthians 10:32) because, as you can readily see, that when someone persecutes His Church, they are really persecuting Him. This is shown again in these verses:

“For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the Church, his body, and is himself its Savior.” Ephesians 5:23

“And he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?” And he said, “Who are you, Lord?” And he said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting;” Acts 9:4-5

Saul had been persecuting His Church, as shown in Acts 8:3. Why then, did Jesus say “why do you persecute me?” Why didn’t He say ‘why do you persecute my Church’?

A great civilization cannot be destroyed from the outside unless it first destroys itself from the inside.

Let us make a few observations regarding longevity and survivability of one institutional entity:

The Roman Empire was the most powerful state the world had ever seen at the time.

It was begun in 27 B.C. by Caesar Augustus, and collapsed under Romulus in 476 A.D.. Its total life was 503 years.

At the time of the collapse of the Roman Empire, the Church which Jesus Christ founded was already 446 years old, despite the fact that it was brutally attacked from within by heretics such as the Simonians, Marcionites, Monarchians, Montanists, Novatians, Donatists, Arians, Jovinians, Pelagians, Nestorians, and scores of others.

The Arian heresy alone, started by Arius, an insider priest who denied the divinity of Christ, was blamed for causing many of the faithful priests and Bishops to follow him.

Yet despite all the slings and arrows from within, Christ’s Church survived. The gates of hell did not prevail. Yet that is only part of the story, since at the same time all of this was going on, the Church was brutally attacked from without by the Jews, Romans, Vandals and many others, yet Christ’s Church survived, and all the while it was steadily growing and expanding.

Again, the gates of hell did not prevail.

How then could the powerful Roman Empire collapse and yet the fledgling Church which Jesus Christ founded, survive during those same tumultuous years?

A Plain Warning that Unrepentant Sexual Sin Excludes One from the Kingdom of God

Do not be deceived; neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers nor boy prostitutes nor sodomites nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor robbers will inherit the Kingdom of God. (1 Cor 6:9-10)

To say that someone who does not repent of such behaviors “will not inherit the Kingdom of God” is to say that they will go to hell. This is very clear and very strong. Willfully persisting in sins and “lifestyles” such as these leads to destruction.

Note, this warning extends to those who defiantly stubbornly refuse to cease such behaviors and even more to those who celebrate and encourage them. The warning is not to those who may fall in weakness but acknowledge their sin, confess it and seek to get free.

Sadly the celebration and glamorization of such things is widespread in our culture today.

To deny one’s DNA-dictated and physiologically self-evident binary heterosexual identity is not a joke. It is deep-seated mental illness and spiritual rebellion at the same time.

Where is America on the scale of rebellion against God in these matters? We are leading the entire world! Democracy, human rights, the rule of law and the liberal world order have all been redefined since the Obama regime began to prioritize sexual deviance.

Should the MAGA “red wave” be defeated in November, this entire generation of young people will be coercively recruited to LGBTism beyond anything ever seen in this world. No human effort will be able to stop it.

U.S. hegemony has been virtually synonymous with global LGBT cultural arm-twisting since Obama, with only a partial slowdown under President Trump.

Likewise, an “OBiden” victory over pro-family Russia in the Ukraine war (strengthening and enhancing America’s sole-superpower status as global LGBT agenda-enforcers) would absolutely ensure Ukraine and all of Europe would get the same treatment as American schoolchildren – backed 100% by the Demons of Davos.

Prophecy, the Commands of Our Lady of Fatima and the Roman Catholic S.O.S.

The Commands of Our Lady of Fatima

Mother Mary communicated both conditional and unconditional prophecies to Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta. Unconditionally, Our Lady that in the end Her Immaculate Heart will Triumph.

This is not a matter of if it will happen, but when it will happen.

The when depends on us fulfilling Her commands. Conditionally, Our Lady said, “If they heed My requests, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace. If not, she shall spread her errors throughout the world, promoting wars and persecutions of the Church; the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.’”

Christ, while on earth taught we shall know a tree by its fruits. When we observe the fruits, it is clear for all to see that the Triumph of the immaculate Heart has not yet come.

What did Our Lady of Fatima command? First and foremost to stop offending God who is already too much offended by our sins. This means we must stay in the state of grace.

This is the precondition on which all of Our Lady’s commands depend. We must remember that in the state of mortal sin, one is spiritually dead and incapable of performing meritorious works.

Our Lady taught the shepherd children that the world must perform five actions which will merit the Triumph of Her Immaculate Heart. People often forget this part- that is us, the faithful, who merit the grace through the execution of five commands which can be remembered by this helpful mnemonic: Roman Catholic S.O.S.

R.osary daily
C.onsecrate ourselves to Mary
S.capular (get enrolled and wear the Brown Scapular)
O.ffer up our sufferings
S.aturdays (First Saturday devotion)

Our Lady also communicated the conditional prophecy that the chastisement will be mitigated in proportion to the efforts made to propagate the Fatima message.

Our Lady, our general has spoken. These are our marching orders. This is the only option to save the world. Success is guaranteed. The Triumph of Her Immaculate Heart will come. The question is when.

How devastating will the state of affairs become before we take this prophecy seriously?
