True story of The Hail Mary of a
(A true story)
A little twelve years-old
Protestant boy had often
heard his Catholic companions

much that he
copied it, memorized it and
would recite it
every day. "Look, Mommy, what

One day, while reading the
Gospel, he came
across the passage about the
the Angel to Our Lady. Full of
joy, the little boy
ran to his mother and said:
"Mommy, I have
found the 'Hail Mary' in the
Bible which says:
'Hail full of grace, the Lord is
blessed art thou amongst
women.' Why do
you call it a superstitious

that Mary was a

|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by alentyno: 6:39pm On Jul 29, 2014|
Please I want you to sincerely answer this:
Why do we catholics, yes you heard me right 'we'
Why are we so bent on inventing all manner of mediators (in the name of saints and the likes) btw us and God despite knowing Jesus christ is highest mediator we could ask of? Why?
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by alentyno: 6:42pm On Jul 29, 2014|
Ubenedictus: you like to speak in opposits.He is saying the plain truth. You could event all manner of testimonies from anywhere you like.
THE BASIC TRUTH STILL REMAINS THAT THE ROSARY IS NOT BIBLICAL #peace
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by Ubenedictus(m): 7:11pm On Jul 29, 2014|
alentyno:this simply shows you have not been reading your bible.
Now go back and continue reading!
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by alentyno: 7:28pm On Jul 29, 2014|
Ubenedictus: this simply shows you have not been reading your bible.You that have been reading it why don't you 'plainly' quote it..... Other than luke 1:28,41 which ironically is half of the full prayer. The second part which says she shud pray for you was simply cooked up by the church and in fact that's the major beef I have with our church leaders. They always invent dogmas out of nowhere (just like the pharisees did in the OT) and impose them on innocent disciples of christ.
The earlier you start asking questions the better for you. Yes I dare not question GOD nor His word (BIBLE) but bro I WILL NEVER EVER SWALLOW MEANINGLESS DOGMAS COOKED UP BY MEN that end up distracting me from what God is actually saying
MY DEAR BRO HALF TRUTH IS DEADLIER THAN IGNORANCE thread wisely. #peace

Someday soon this catholics will come to realise the dangerous truth that mary who they call queen of heaven is non other than a marine demonic spirit, then they will know that the real mary is humbly in heaven serving God without a single knowledge of their individual existence on earth
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by italo: 8:05pm On Jul 29, 2014|
It was God that 'invented' all sorts of mediators.
It was God that said to men: "whose sins you forgive is forgiven, and whose sins you retain are tretained."
That is man mediating, as 'invented' by God.
In the book of Revelation, John sees that "the twenty-four elders [the leaders of the people of God in heaven] fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and with golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints" (Rev. 5:. Thus the saints in heaven offer to God the prayers of the saints on earth.
Angels do the same thing: "[An] angel came and stood at the altar [in heaven] with a golden censer; and he was given much incense to mingle with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar before the throne; and the smoke of the incense rose with the prayers of the saints from the hand of the angel before God" (Rev. 8:3–4).
Jesus himself warned us not to offend small children, because their guardian angels have guaranteed intercessory access to the Father: "See that you do not despise one of these little ones; for I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven" (Matt. 18:10).
Because he is the only God-man and the Mediator of the New Covenant, Jesus is the only mediator between man and God (1 Tim. 2:5), but this in no way means we cannot or should not ask our fellow Christians to pray with us and for us (1 Tim. 2:1–4). In particular, we should ask the intercession of those Christians in heaven, who have already had their sanctification completed, for "[t]he prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects" (Jas. 5:16).
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by italo: 8:12pm On Jul 29, 2014|
But you swallowed the dogma of the canon of scripture from the same Church leaders. They told you which book is inspired and and which one is not?
Who is fooling who?
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by italo: 8:16pm On Jul 29, 2014|
clean2: Someday soon this catholics will come to realise the dangerous truth that mary who they call queen of heaven is non other than a marine demonic spirit, then they will know that the real mary is humbly in heaven serving God without a single knowledge of their individual existence on earth
So the Mary that God crowned Queen in heaven (Rev 12:1) is a marine demonic spirit?
May God have mercy on your soul.
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by alentyno: 8:22pm On Jul 29, 2014|
italo:That's the point Jesus is the greatest mediator btw God and man and yet 90% of our prayers are are offered thru other 'mediators' thereby neglecting the major mediator. Why?!
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by alentyno: 8:29pm On Jul 29, 2014|
italo:I didn't swallow anything. I believed in the word of God because anytime I studied and meditated on it, I knew through the help of the Holy spirit that the words in it are not ordinary at all! I NEVER BLIVED THAT IT IS GODS WORD BECOS THEY SAID SO!
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by Ubenedictus(m): 8:35pm On Jul 29, 2014|
it seems you are confusing orthodox historic christian teaching with the new age cook-up stuff your pastors teach!
Sorry it is the work of christians to pray for each other, and a good christian should never be ashamed to ask for intercession, this is not cooked up teaching, they have been part of christian doctrine since day one.
Are you suprised?
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by alentyno: 8:36pm On Jul 29, 2014|
italo:Note the similarity
between this description and the description that
Joseph gave of his father Jacob (Israel) and his
mother and their children (Genesis 37:9-11). The
twelve stars refer to the twelve tribes of Israel. So
the woman in Revelation 12 is Israel.
Additional evidence for this interpretation is that
Revelation 12:2-5 speaks of the woman being with
child and giving birth. While it is true that Mary
gave birth to Jesus, it is also true that Jesus, the
son of David from the tribe of Judah, came from
Israel. In a sense, Israel gave birth—or brought
forth—Christ Jesus. Verse 5 says that the woman’s
child was " a male child, who is to rule all the
nations with a rod of iron; and her child was
caught up to God and to His throne." Clearly, this
is describing Jesus. Jesus ascended to heaven
(Acts 1:9-11) and will one day establish His
kingdom on earth (Revelation 20:4-6), and He will
rule it with perfect judgment (the “rod of iron”;
see Psalm 2:7-9).
The woman’s flight into the wilderness for 1,260
days refers to the future time called the Great
Tribulation. Twelve hundred, sixty days is 42
months (of 30 days each), which is the same as 3
1/2 years. Halfway through the Tribulation period,
the Beast (the Antichrist) will set an image of
himself up in the temple that will be built in
Jerusalem. This is the abomination that Jesus
spoke of in Matthew 24:15 and Mark 13:14. When
the Beast does this, he breaks the peace pact he
had made with Israel, and the nation has to flee
for safety—possibly to Petra (also see Matthew 24;
Daniel 9:27). This escape of the Jews is pictured as
the woman fleeing into the wilderness.
Revelation 12:12-17 speaks of how the devil will
make war against Israel, trying to destroy her
(Satan knows his time is short, relatively speaking
—see Revelation 20:1-3, 10). It also reveals that
God will protect Israel in the wilderness.
Revelation 12:14 says Israel will be protected from
the devil for "a time, times, and half a time (“a
time” = 1 year; “times” = 2 years; “half a time” =
one-half year; in other words, 3 1/2 years)

Ubenedictus:Easy dude. Am a catholic (since birth and till date). Yes you heard me right. Am not against intercession but am against us giving 10% of our christianity to Jesus and the remaining 90% to cooked up dogmas
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by italo: 8:44pm On Jul 29, 2014|
1. You just lied.
2. All prayers through saints are addressed to Jesus. We ask them to carry our prayers to him.
3. It seems you are part of the people talked about in the Bible. You look and look but do not see.
Every Catholic prayer starts and ends...
...in the name of the Father, AND OF THE SON, and of the Holy Spirit.
But unfortunately, Satan has made some so-called "Catholics" eternally deaf.
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by italo: 8:50pm On Jul 29, 2014|
So it is about what you claim the Holy Spirit revealed.
But when we too meditate on the other dogmas of the Church, we know through the help of the Holy Spirit that they are not ordinary.
Why then are you attacking us?
Are you the sole custodian of the Holy Spirit?
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by alentyno: 8:52pm On Jul 29, 2014|
italo:That's the point. God thru Jesus has opened up His glory unto us. Jesus reconciled us to him thru his death. Yet we still worship him as if we are still in bondage!
Btw u mean sumtin like when we say 'St joseph pray for us' we are actually saying 'pls st joseph pray to Jesus to pray to God?
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by alentyno: 8:59pm On Jul 29, 2014|
You know exactly what am saying.
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by italo: 9:05pm On Jul 29, 2014|
There is only one woman who gave birth to Jesus.
Her name is Mary.
Is Israel also the Queen in Ps 45:9?
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by italo: 9:07pm On Jul 29, 2014|
Yes, I do.
You're saying nonsense.
|Re: True Story Of The Hail Mary Of A Protestant by italo: 9:10pm On Jul 29, 2014|
You seem to think Jesus is not God.
Are you a Christian or a Muslim?

italo:Who is the
queen here? It is the King's wife, his true and only wife; and
since the King is none other than the Messiah,
his Bride is the Holy Church, as the scriptures
declare ( Revelation 19:9; 21:9) See also
