Actually, that seems to indicate that it could use some heavy revisions. If your organization's defining charter is so vaguely worded and obscure that only the wisest members are able to divine it's meaning and interpretation, that's a fairly serious problem.

As long as the Jedi were just a religious affiliation of sorts, it was ok to have a relatively open ended creed that could be read in many different ways, just as many actual religious texts are in the real world. However, if Luke is creating the Jedi Order as it was under the Old Republic, an organization of adjudicators and guardians, it would be crucial to have a concise, clear Jedi Code that governed their actions.

The five line mantra (There is no emotion, there is peace....) is only a small part of the Jedi code. The Jedi Code was a code of conduct that established rules and modes of behavior for all Jedi. Although changing in style through the generations, the main tenets, context and meaning of the code stayed the same. You can read more about it here, but yes Luke did make several changes, like allowing Jedi to marry and removing age restrictions for potential Jedi candidates.

It seems that the Jedi code is a vague idea that gets rewritten nearly every time it's quoted, so maybe this time they'll actually give it a bit more definition, like coda's or mantra's for multiple events, flesh out luke's version a bit.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

Agreed, i hate the fact that many Jedi can't even understand the first line.

"There is no emotion, there is peace" I would interpret that to mean We are not ruled by our emotions, but strive for peace.
Many Jedi seem to think it means they should block out emotion completely, and it leads to many a downfall, a sith coaxes you into feeling the slightest bit of anger and you completely Lose it... And well.... Die.
Evil is a word used by the ignorant and the weak. The dark side is about survival. It's about unleashing your inner power. It glorifies the strength of the individual.

FIXED

if Abrams did it once, he can do it again. I won't be surprised if the first shot of the new movie has a ship time traveling from the future back to pre EP IV and instantly changes the entire timeline.
