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

Must pagans always set a pattern for you guys??

That is just my problem...

Can't you guys for once think independently out of the pagan BOX....??

Must you always follow follow pagans everywhere they go like a lost puppy to adopt/hijack there practices.......??...

I don't know what to call catholics anymore....

To show you that paganism has become your tradition,if you don't count beads it seems your prayers aint complete.....

You must count beads,make the ""cross"" sign,pray through mary while you look at her image.....etc....

If this is not ""JUJU"" I wonder what it is...

There is no difference between you and a buddhist....

Shikena!!!!!....
actually so far u are d person wu have been thinking in the "pagan BOX". U are d person wu says beads are pagan because budha used them, 25 is pagan because sun worshippers used that dat and sunday too. After seeing "pagan, pagan pagan" in everything u still have d effontry to talk abt a pagan box?
I just noticed dat ur anti-catholic campaign isnt yielding fruits except to show me how superstitious u are. U may want to try ur luck here: www.catholicanswersforum.com mayb u wil find new convert there. I wil try to keep off ur arguement u argue with a closed mind and simply repeat some old stories u were told over and over again.

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?

Italo, my friend, don't you know the difference between praise and prayer?

Matthew 6:7-8
New King James Version (NKJV)

7 And when you pray, do not use
vain repetitions as the heathen do.

For they think that they will be
heard for their many words.
8 “Therefore do not be like them.
For your Father knows the things
you have need of before you ask
Him.

Matter of fact, Christianity is a just copy cat of different pre-existing pagan religions that they christian crusader later destroyed, persecuted their followers and destroyed every material about their liturgy and litany only to incoorperate them into christian worship.
The concept of death and ressurection of a deity as a means of atonement existed way before Jesus and christians were born. The concept of itenerant Godmen with disciples did not start with the Jesus story. People dying on the cross did not start with jesus either. Most of the miracles attributed to jesus and life situation are similar myth that are already known with other pre-existed godmen. Religion itself is a creation of man, including the fictional and mythical characters they talk about.

Christ called those doing that heathen not me. But i will follow his footsteps and also call them heathen.

We are anti-paganism. If catholic is pagan, then
anti-pagan=anti-catholic.

Matt. 26:
39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”

42 He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.”

44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the THIRD TIME, saying the SAME THING.

Jesus sounded very Catholic there, didn't he?

Do you not understand what He meant when He said do not use vain repetitions as the heathens do. He sounded anti-catholic here and upon that called their likes HEATHEN.

At times I wonder if you actually reason before you type.are you sure you really know what praise and worship are all about? The first line of the Lords prayer you mentioned goes thus

"Our father who art in heaven ,hallowed be thy name.thy kingdom come,may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven"

What do you understand by these lines? Is it not obvious there are lines of praise? Your level of ignorance is amazing

Where did angels repeat a prayer continuously? I want to learn.

He repeated it a prayer 3x in a space how many seconds for how minutes. He went further and prayed again. Didn't you see that.
Do you know what it means to pray without ceasing? Why not claim that its what you guys.

Am sure He knows why He called them heathen, of which you can't exonerate catholics from no matter how hard you try. They worst is that the vain repetition is even a prayer to Mary.

I don't even know the logic for your argument.Do you ponder to read read what you have written @ all

You claimed catholics pray repetiously to mary contrary to Jesus's command but here you are shown Jesus himself doing the same thing and you are now asking for how many minutes or seconds.how did you come about this absurd conclusion.

Obvious you just read the bible like a novel without any understanding.let me explain that verse for you.

Jesus did not condemn repetious prayers but rather VAIN and repetious prayer.Kindly get that into your skull.for prayer to be condemed it must be VAIN not necessary repetitious
