What are the Ten commandments?
The Ten Commandments were known and obeyed by faithful people before the law was given at Sinai. Later incorporated into the new covenant, they constitute the basic moral code for humanity (as further explained by Jesus) and are obeyed to demonstrate the believer’s love for God and his fellow man.
In total there are some 613 Old Testament commandments and 1,050 New Testament commandments throughout the Bible, with some being applicable to us new covenant Christians and others no longer. Boiled down: Christians today are no longer required to keep the laws exclusive only to the law of Moses, however everything else outside of this, Old and New Testament, still applies. Among those that still apply to Christians today are the Ten Commandments and the many commandments of Christ; when summarised these become: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” and “Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself”.
But I implore you not to take my word for it, but to come to your own convictions: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15).
“18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings." (Jeremiah 17:9-10)
Just because God asked Israel to make cherubim’s in His temple, doesn't mean the second commandment is null and void. They were not bowing to the cherubim's, they were bowing to God, specifically the Ark of the Covenant which the cherubim were also glorifying by being depicted as bowing down to Him and covering Him with their wings just as they do in heaven. Not to mention the Lord God explicitly commanded them to make the cherubim. This is very different to making carved and molten idols and depictions that you directly bow down to and worship. Last I checked God didn't command you to make your best depiction of Jesus Christ with long womanly flowing hair, or to put an image of a dead saint in your car for protection. He commanded you not to do such things.
“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.” (Exodus 20:3-6)
“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23-24)
“Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.” (1 Corinthians 10:14)
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:19-21)
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)
“For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.” (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10)
“As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.” (1 Corinthians 8:4)
“For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.” (1 Chronicles 16:26)
“What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols? Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it. But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.” (Habakkuk 2:18)
“Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the LORD your God.” (Leviticus 19:4)
“The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not; They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths. They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them.” (Psalms 135:15-18)
“Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.” (1 John 5:21)
Don't Judge God by the wolves in sheep's clothing who attempt to impersonate his true followers. Satan fights God's church by joining them and corrupting them from within, which by and large he has been very successful in doing. You must base your judgement upon the Bible alone, not what you see the hypocrites, who are really servants of Satan, doing.
It is good that you see the Pope is a Jesuit. What i'm not sure you're aware of is that the Pope is the antichrist, that man of sin and that son of perdition (each successive pope). He is the head of the modern continuation of Babylon. The mother of harlots who gave birth to all the other false religions you see today e.g. Islam, Buddhism, Greek Orthodox etc. Everything the Roman Catholic church teaches and practices is opposite to what is commanded in the Bible, and they martyred 50-100million Christians during their reign of terror from 538AD - 1798AD.
Everything you just said contradicts the Christian faith.
“Thou shalt not murder.” Exodus 20:13
"I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan." (Revelation 2:9)
"I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee." (Revelation 3:8-9)
Only for Catholics. Remember the pope changed times and laws...
“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” (Daniel 7:25)
I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. (Revelation 2:9)
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. (Revelation 3:8-9)
The Bible is God's inspired Word, inerrant in its original writing and the only authoritative and infallible rule of faith and conduct for humanity.
To date historians have roughly 25,000 manuscripts of New Testament books, far more than any other book from ancient history. This includes over 5800 Greek manuscripts of the New Testament, with an astounding 2.6 million pages of biblical text and an average size of 450 pages. Between these manuscripts there is an accuracy of 99.5%, making it the most accurate historical text that exists by orders of magnitude.
In regards to your question, none of the translations to other languages are perfect, only the original Greek version of the New Testament is, and the original Hebrew/Aramaic versions of the Old Testament are. However, some of the translations available to us are very good and accurate.
Amen brother. We are not without hope brother, hope in the Lord Jesus Christ and His return.
