I didn't say it was my opinion, I said it was my understanding, it's what I was told. Thanks to all who were able to clarify. Dumb is reading what is posted and missing the meaning.

Actually the statement "This allows them to have their idol worship" was offensive and definitely made it sound like your own opinion. You may want to think about how you phrase things when posting. Perhaps saying "I've been told Catholics changed the ten commandments to facilite their practice of what is percieved to be idol worship" would have been a better way to put it. See the difference?

Jesus had brothers and sisters (Matthew 13:55)

Peter was married (Mark 1:30)

The New Testament strictly says marriage will not be forbidden and no foods shall be deemed unclean (I Timothy 4:3)

I'm pretty sure none of these things are in the 10 commandments. Did someone change them again?

Irishmom, you are so funny. I can't stand it. (make sure you feed the furkids first! )

I'll post your hours on a sticky on my monitor, as I'm sure I can use your help in wording as well. You did a good job rewording that phrase, btw.

We'll just make you our pc filter. How's that? Things should settle down in this forum then. Flames will die and leave just a bit of smoldering here and there. Hey, wait a minute! Maybe *this* is hell (the forum, I mean)
Now we're done for. Too late to repent for coming here.

The word translated as "brother" or "sister", adelphos, can be used to reference cousins, or half-siblings. The same word was also used to designate the relationship between Abraham and Lot, though they weren't brothers. The same with Laban and Jacob, even though it was an uncle/nephew relationship. There just weren't the words for "cousin, nephew, half-brother" etc.

So? Priestly celibacy wasn't required until several centuries later.

Marriage ISN'T forbidden. If a man doesn't want to remain celibate, he is permitted to marry. He's simply not permitted to become a priest, that's all. It's not the same as forbidding ANY marriage.

Have no idea why you mentioned unclean foods.

I want to note that Catholics do not abide by the doctrine of Sola Scriptura.
