God’s Law Compared to Man’s

God’s Law Compared to Man’s

excerpt Truth Gathering, AKJV exhaustive Topical Bible


As the title indicates, this excerpt brings together God’s scriptures citing His Law as compared to Christ’s confirmation; then, both are compared to those laws taught by Satan’s synagogues, which appear Christian but are not and their laws are scripturally identified as “man’s commandments and traditions.” Be sure to note the remarkable differences in the latter, which do reflect changes, deletions and division: the very acts of which God says will reap utter destruction in earth’s end. These actions also are in direct opposition to Deuteronomy 4:2, that nothing is to be added to or taken away from God’s commandments. There are many New Testament confirmations, too many to cite them all here. For a complete citation, refer to AKJV Topical Bible Truth Gathering, chapter “God’s Statutes of Life;” which provides about 50 pages, typing paper size, of scriptural confirmation.


God’s Law “from the beginning,” Exodus 20:3-17 and Deuteronomy c.5; confirmed by Christ’s Law; then both compared to “Man’s Law” . . .


God said: Thou shalt have no gods before me. 

Jesus said: Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve. (Matthew 4:10)

Man’s Law I, “I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not have strange gods before me.


God said: Thou shalt not make thee any graven imagine, or any likeness of anything 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 am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third generation of them that hate Me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and obey my commandments.

Jesus said: Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone graven by art and man’s device. (I John 5:21; Acts 17:29)

Man’s Law II: Thou shalt not take the name of thy Lord thy God in vain.




God said: Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.

Jesus said:  That the name of God and His doctrine be not blasphemed. (I Timothy 6:1)

Man’s Law III: Remember that thou keep Holy the Sabbath. (midnight Saturday to midnight Sunday)


God said: Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor and do all thy work; but the seventh day (sundown Friday to sundown Saturday) is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God; in it thou, nor thy son, nor daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger (heathen) that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it (made it holy).

Jesus said:  Pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day. The Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath: therefore, the Son of man (Jesus) is Lord also of the Sabbath. For He spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, and God did rest the seventh day from all His works. There remaineth therefore a keeping of a Sabbath to the people of God. For he that is entered into His rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from His. For by Him were all thing created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth. (Matthew 24:20; Mark 2:27,28; Hebrews 4:4,9-10; Colossians 1:16; Luke 5:6; Mark 2:27-28)

Man’s Law IV: Honor thy father and thy mother.


God said: Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

Jesus said: Honor thy father and thy mother. (Matthew 19:19)

Man’s Law V: Thou shalt not kill.


God said:  Thou shalt not kill.

Jesus said: Thou shalt do no murder. (Matthew 19:19)

Man’s Law VI:  Thou shalt not commit adultery.


God said: Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Jesus said:  Thou shalt not commit adultery. (Matthew 19:19)

Man’s Law VII:  Thou shalt not steal.


God said:  Thou shalt not steal.

Jesus said: Thou shalt not steal. (Matthew 19:18)

Man’s Law VIII: Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.


God said: Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

Jesus said: Thou shalt not bear false witness. (Matthew 19:18)

Man’s Law IX: Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife.


God said: Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is thy neighbor’s.

Jesus said:  Thou shalt not covet. (Roman 7:7, implies anything or anybody)

Man’s Law X:  Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s goods.


There is a slight distortion in the very first precept, where man’s law says, “no strange gods before me,” as opposed to God saying “no gods.” Satan qualified “strange” because there is no false god that is strange to him; therefore, the use of false idols and rituals in Christ’s name are acceptable to Satan. None are acceptable to God or Christ.

The next thing to notice about man’s commandments above: Satan’s synagogues deleted God’s second Commandment regarding graven images. Why? Because Papal Rome, who is Revelation’s great whore that made these changes, is littered with graven images to false gods yet are named as being to mother Mary and Christ and various people Rome has declared as saints; and, so do her daughters the Protestant denominations, though to a much lesser degree in order to hide the family resemblance.

By omitting the second Law, the whole Law is reduced to nine instead of ten, which required that Satan move the third commandment into second place; nevertheless, there remain nine and he would have to do something in order to come up with Ten, so that the overall appearance of God’s Law would seem the same if merely glanced upon rather than Biblically studied. 

Man’s fourth precept has been moved into third position yet refers to God’s fourth regarding His Holy Sabbath; whereas man’s sabbath is void of being a true seal of authority, which God’s Sabbath meets all criteria of a valid seal of authority (see article “Seal of The Living God“). It also lacks the citation of a specific day. Rather than do so, which would be too obvious for Satan’s devious taste, his denominations teach an abbreviated law, by using a scripture that is abbreviated, while contrarily saying people should be in church on the first day of the week, Sunday. 

They even avoid calling Sunday the Sabbath, for that would be a blatant lie. Instead they call it by a less obvious lie, the Lord’s Day; which Biblically is another name for God’s Holy Sabbath, but most people do not know this. Instead, they accept that it was the day Christ arose from the grave, which in their mind makes the day okay with God.

Man’s fourth law also lacks the reason for authority; as God’s Law states He created all there is in heaven and earth. Neither does man’s cite a domain over which those laws are enforceable; God’s says the domain is heaven and earth. And, finally, man’s sabbath law lacks the name of the author of his laws; and, there is good reason: because Satan does not want us to know he is the plagiaristic author.

Satan wants us to believe God is the author, which is to unwittingly set Satan up as our God if we follow man’s laws. Therefore, man’s sabbath precept is not a valid seal of authority. The only seal criterion Satan’s law reflects is that it does not resemble God’s Seal; therefore it is a unique counterfeit but a counterfeit nonetheless. God’s seal is unique, for there is no other religion in the universe that observes God’s seventh day.

Finally, we get to God’s tenth precept about coveting. It is here that Satan made up for deleting God’s second commandment: he split the tenth statute into two separate laws, and numbered them nine and ten. Voila! Man now has ten blasphemous commandments and the majority of those who profess to be Christians believe they are being taught God’s Law; when, in fact, they are being taught lies for God: as Jesus charged, “They teach commandments and traditions of men . . . teaching lies for God.”

They continue these lies in God’s name in direct opposition to Deuteronomy 4:2. Revelation 22:19 confirms and clearly states that anyone who adds to or takes from God’s Word will be removed from His Book of Life. To be deleted from that book is to perish “with or without God’s Law.” Romans 2:12-13 clearly states this and adds, “For the hearers of the law are not just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.” To be justified by God means that a person has been approved to share in Christ’s kingdom to come.

Which laws were you taught? More importantly, which laws do you obey? We ought to obey God instead of men. (Acts 5:29)

  2. Here’s something interesting:

    The Law

  4. Indeed, Thinkonit, our enemy is very sly and very creative with his manipulations of God’s Truth. This is exactly why people need to stop just listening to the person standing in the pulpit; instead, they need to go to God’s Word for themselves if they want only God’s Truth.

    Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your discovery with me! 🙂

    Much love in Christ,

  5. Bonnieq, Thanks for the post. We’ve got a refrigerator magnet with the Ten Commandments on it. I never noticed the “graven image” commandment missing. Thanks for bring that up. That magnets destined for the trash!

    Thanks for showing us how subtle our enemy is in mixing truth with lies to make the lies more acceptable.

  6. Hi, Paul! Good to see you again! Yes, a cross is a graven image and has it origins in the false god Tammuz, who was a mortal man and is mentioned in the Old Testament. It is thought to be the first use of the letter T: the people wore it around the neck to honor Tammuz and criminals or other undesirables were hung on a cross, symbolizing their sacrifice to Tammuz.

    As for “man’s Law” being taught without the graven image law, it makes perfect sense when research into the Roman Papacy and the Vatican are conducted: they are riddled with graven images, all having originated in pagan worship, such as the statue of mother Mary and baby Jesus. It originally was a statue of the queen and mother of Tammuz, the baby being Tammuz. The list goes on and on. And, even in the Protestant denominations, while there are fewer images, there are graven images nonetheless. This would be hard to explain IF the graven image law were taught intact.

    Man’s Law comes straight out of Papal Rome and is also taught in all Protestant denominations; therefore, the necessity of deleting the second commandment and changing the fourth and dividing the tenth. This was done relying on the fact that most people would not study their own Bibles; and, it was achieved over a period of about 1260 years when Bibles were not available to anyone except church leaders and the extremely wealthy. So, people became accustomed to taking the pulpit word and continued to do so, even after Bibles were made available.

    As for stained glass windows, I suggest that if they don’t depict God’s creations, then they are okay: just beautiful shades of colored light. The bottomline is that we are not to bow down to them in a form of worship; as does Papal Rome to various statues.

    Otherwise, I feel that each person must “work out their own salvation with fear and trembling.” Which is to say, we must let the Holy Spirit guide us in all learning and in all obedience: only then do we know we are getting it right and are approved by God. 🙂

    Jesus summarized His Father’s Law beautifully and lived it just as beautifully. The only one He did not speak of was the fourth precept; however, the gospels state over and over, “As was Jesus’ custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath and taught.” The Apostles did the same and taught the same.

    Anyway, Jesus truly did as God said He would do, “magnify God’s Law and make it honourable.” Then Jesus said, “They who obey God’s Law and teach others the same will be called great in heaven.” So, Jesus magnified God’s Law by living it and made it honourable by teaching others to obey it.

    Thank you, again Paul, for stopping by! There is nothing I enjoy more than sharing God’s Truth. 🙂

    Much love in Christ,

  7. Hey Bonnie
    I thought I would come back and see how you are doing
    Where are those laws taught without the graven image one?
    I wasnt taught those laws at any time but I have read exodus 20 before. I like how Jesus summarises the law.
    Here is a question – is a cross a graven image? What about stain glass windows? I hope they are not but i have a bad feeling after reading your excerpt.
    Thanks for typing it in.
