AdolfOliverPanties: Isn't there something in the Ten Commandments about graven images?


If there is, just about every church on Earth is violating it:

jshine: simplicimus: The design is wrong. It's two tablets, 5 on each. Did this guy even read the Old Testament?

I certainly haven't. Where does it say how many commandment were on each tablet?


It doesn't say how many on each. Just says there were tablets.

I've thought for a long time that trouble with spelling is largely due lack of reading or, at the very least, not paying attention to the words one reads.

This is very consistent with many Christians not even bothering to read their own Bible or pay much attention to it beyond the parts they like.

They don't follow them themselves, and they can't even spell them right, but they expect the rest of the country to follow them without question?

MaudlinMutantMollusk: simplicimus: Paris1127: simplicimus: Magorn: simplicimus: The design is wrong. It's two tablets, 5 on each. Did this guy even read the Old Testament?

Well actually THREE tablets, 5 on each, didn't you see the movie?

Yeah, I saw the movie. But on the bright side, we have 5 fewer commandments.

I wonder what was on that tablet... Perhaps a commandment about loving other people even if you disagree with him or her?

Well, the first 5 are man's relationship with God, the second 5 are man's relationship with fellow humans. No idea what would be on the third tablet.

I have always wondered how one "simply fixes" a spelling or artistic error on a monument, anyone know? Seems like if you screw that up, it's a re-do.

Just to be clear, Christians don't follow the Ten Commandments. Christ told his followers they didn't have to follow Old Testament law anymore, which is good because I really like cheeseburgers and lobsters, and I've got this awesome wool and nylon coat that keeps me nice and warm and toasty in the winter. I'm also really enjoy cooking food on Saturdays, and I get a kick out of the 15 year mortgage on my house.

But enough about all the ways that I violate God's law every day. Obviously, the Ten Commandments have nothing to do with Christians. I want to talk about people who do still follow the Ten Commandments. Like Muslims. Maybe the person who put this up is Muslim; someone should call up Oklahoma State Representative Mike Ritze and ask him if he put up a Muslim monument because he likes Sharia Law or something.

Cyberluddite:
The other 5 were simply advisory, and dealt with interpersonal relationships. Some biblical scholars believe that they read as follows:

11. Favor thine brothers before harlots.
12. If there be grass on the field, though mayest play ball.
13. Stickest not thy manhood into crazy.
14. Once thou hast gone black, thou shalt not again go back.
15. Remember always: No matter how fetching appearest thy neighbor's wife or thy neighbor's maidservant, some man, somewhere, and quite possibly thy neighbor, hath grown weary of her excrement.


O.K., that sh*t was hilarious!!

Indefinite article. I.e., one of several. God admits he's not alone more than once.

"Let us make man in our own image."

toraque: It's really NOT misspelled. They just went back to the original texts and translated it properly from the Pnakotic fragments.

It's not "Remember the Sabbath" it's "Remember the Shoggoth"


A little farther south, it would be "Remember the Alamo"

Where does it say in the OT that there were 10 commandments?  I can't find the number of commandments anywhere in the Bible. It looks like someone just took the words that God said and sort and said "meh... that's somewhere between 9 and 13, depending on how you divide 'em up. Let's say there's about 10. And different religions can argue about how to number them for the next few thousand years."
 
2012-11-16 04:37:17 PM
There's a second set of Commandments in Exodus 34, possibly another in Deuteronomy, but that's for scholars/ theologians, not doctrinaires as these OK folks are.
That's not Stars of David at the base of the monument. The Sign of Silence is given. 93/93

How do I know? I don't read Hebrew. The 10 commandments are a translation of Exodus 20:1-17. But the Talmud is pretty clear on their being 10.
