In direct immitation of buddhists and muslims who used prayer BEADs in their prayers......

The catholic encyclopedia acknowledges that prayer beads were universally familiar to non-christians for centuries and were in use long before the Catholic church adopted the rosary.............

Once again it was an adoption of paganism......

Infact the hindu's practice exactly the same form of worship.....which is called JAPA....

Etymology
The Sanskrit word japa is derived from the
root jap-, meaning "to utter in a low voice,
repeat internally, mutter".[1]
Varieties of Japa
Japa Mala, or Japa beads, consisting of 108
beads plus the head bead.
Beads
In most forms of japa, the repetitions are
counted using a string of beads known as a japa
mala. Within Hindu traditions Vaishnava
devotees commonly chant on beads made from
the Tulsi plant ( Holy Basil), held as a sacred
manifestation of Tulsidevi; whereas Shaivites
use Rudraksha beads. The number of beads in
the japa mala is generally 108, which has great
significance in both traditions. The bead string
has one big bead called the Meru. During japa
the bead string is held in his right hand and
moved one bead after each mantra repetition.
The bead movement starts with the first
bead after the Meru (aka Guru bead) and ends
in the Meru/Guru signifying end of one cycle
(108) of japa. It is not uncommon for people to
wear japa beads around their neck, although
some practitioners prefer to carry them in a
bead-bag in order to keep them clean.

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japa


Soon some persons would come out and start ranting about joshua and the ark of covenant when it is obvious that the use of the rosary never had its start with the Jews,nor with early christians........

These practices were simply hijacked from paganism.......

How on earth would God answer prayers that are made through the rosary??

SMH!!!!!!......

You don't want to know why non-Catholics kneel and bow to their beds? Is bowing to a bed not idolatry?

Are you sure the Bible condemns repetitive prayers of Catholics?

Rev 4:8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:

“‘Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord God Almighty,’

who was, and is, and is to come.”

These heavenly beings are obviously very Catholic then. They keep repeating the same prayer forever and ever.

Jesus is also Catholic. He prayed the the cup should pass over him using the same thing THREE times.

The Bible condemns all of us, right?

Lol........

And I think Jesus is still praying that the cup should pass over Him till today abi??

Did Jesus recite that prayer every morning and evening??

did Jesus start reciting that prayer from his birth ,till he was impaled and after his ressurection??

Italo you have got no idea of what prayer is and how you guys follow a routine of stereotypical prayers bowing down before images and using the rosary all in the name of wanting to worship God........

Jesus prayed heartfelt prayers to his heavenly Father,.......and not some memorized repititive words of prayer......

Jesus never adopted pagan traditions to worship his Father.....

Jesus worshipped his Father in spirit and in truth.......

Every morning you wake up you keep repeating the same slogan over and over again...

""Hail mary mother of God please pray for us sinners""

Did Jesus teach you that??

Please answer the posters question....

Why do you use the rosary in prayers.??...

Who started it??what's its origin??

I just wrote down exactly were u guys adopted the use of beads in worship...

If its not true please rebut it.....

Many words have no correlation with making sense. Think before you type. Not the other way round.

You don't understand anything. Read the post I was replying and my post again. If you still can't understand them, keep re-reading them day and night. You will eventually understand it in the world to come.

Your whole comment didn't answer the Op's question....

Why do catholics bow to marys image and pray repetitive prayers with the rosary.....??

Please I believe the angels are bowing down before mary and also holding the rosary praying repetitive prayers.....

When you don't have answers to questions you just go around wrenching scriptures to suit your spurious form of worship.......

We are talking of humans on earth and prayer..instead of giving examples that tallies with the discussion you went straigth to the heavens to talk about four living creatures
Who has six wings and covered with eyes all around, even under its wings....

Are those creatures also bowing down to mary and using the rosary??

Dont you bow to greet your pastor? Reciting prayer is God's business not yours. Why do people try to judge catholic church but the truth is I've bn 2different churches and all that the pastors preach is tithes,tithes,tithes n prosperity. U can sin and do all you want,just confess your sins in your closet,pay your tithe, and you have a ticket to heaven. Thats why all kinds of things are happening in the world cos the new generation chuches(in their quest for money) just attacks other churches,preach sweet-to-the-ear message just to keep members. It doesnt matter where u get the money you pay as tithe. In the church,tithe payers are seen as the most serious n dedicated members,maybe the most righteous even.


you must be one of those brainwashed into thinking that paying tithe will take you to heaven
I laugh in Calabar. And you even have the guts to judge some1 else. very interesting

Ah-ah! What is there on this thread to suggest that Catholics are confused? Do you just get up and say anything you like?

I answered your post and asked you questions which you must have seen but pretended not to see (correct me if I'm wrong).

Here is my post again and pls answer my questions.
italo:

You don't want to know why non-Catholics kneel and bow to their beds? Is bowing to a bed not idolatry?

Are you sure the Bible condemns repetitive prayers of Catholics?

Rev 4:8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:

“‘Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord God Almighty,’

who was, and is, and is to come.”

These heavenly beings are obviously very Catholic then. They keep repeating the same prayer forever and ever.

Jesus is also Catholic. He prayed the the cup should pass over him using the same thing THREE times.

The Bible condemns all of us, right?
Re: Why Do Catholics Pray With The Rosary, And Bow To Mary's Statue? by italo: 4:57pm On Oct 30, 2012
nextpart: Jesus never commanded that Mary should be worshiped.

Of course. And he never commanded beds to be worshipped too. Why, then, do you worship your bed?

nextpart: Even making Jesus statute for worship is idolatery.

This is not the opinion of Jesus, it is YOUR opinion.

nextpart: Where in the Bible did Catholic find praying with rosary?

It is in the same verse that the non-Catholics found where the Bible says we should read the Bible. So show me the verse and you will find where we found the Rosary in the Bible.

nextpart: The catholic way of worship is not in the Bible.

It is! You refuse to see it.
