BOWING TO MARY IS A SIN!



The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the QUEEN OF HEAVEN...that they may provoke me to anger” —Jeremiah 7:18

Sadly, our Catholic friends and family members have been indoctrinated to believe that the use of statues, relics, and other articles is acceptable and even necessary for worship. They have been taught by the Roman Catholic Church that the images and icons used in the church are not actually “worshiped” but are simply “visual aids” to worship.

The Catholic Church long ago began making allowances for the idolatrous use of images by the way they reference the Ten Commandments. In the Catholic catechism and in most official Catholic documents, the first and second commandments are combined and then summarized with “I am the Lord your God. You shall not have other gods beside Me.” Suspiciously absent is what comprises the second commandment in the Protestant numbering of the Ten Commandments: “You shall not make any graven images.”

While it is understandable for “you shall not make any graven images” to be considered an aspect of “you shall not have other gods beside me,” based on the history of idolatry involving graven images throughout biblical and extra-biblical history, it seems unwise to not include “you shall not make any graven images” in every listing of the Ten Commandments. The omission seems especially suspicious in light of the fact that the Roman Catholic Church has long been accused of the idolatrous use of graven images.








Notice the Halo around Mary (especially her head). The is an idolatrous practice of the Catholics which symbolizes deity (that she is equal with God). The Babylonians practiced the same idolatrous worship to the Queen of Heaven. Mary is NOT deity, she was a normal every-day woman. Yes friend, Satan is definitely working in the Vatican and in Catholic organizations all across the world. Though most Catholics will deny worshipping Mary, the evidence says something very different!



They bow down and literally pray in the name of "Mother Mary" to a graven statue of Mary. This is sinful idolatry! They are lying through their teeth. God makes CLEAR in His Word that He will NOT share His glory with another (that includes Mary).

[size=15pt]"I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images." —Isaiah 42:8[/size]



[size=15pt]How could anyone be so foolish to actually bow down in prayer to a statue of Mary, yet at the same time deny that they are worshipping her? God clearly command us in the first of the ten commandments NOT to make unto ourselves ANY graven images.[/size]

"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:" —Exodus 20:4

Do the Catholics need glasses? It says right there in black and white in Exodus 20:4 that we are NOT to make unto ourselves ANY likeness of anything that is in heaven!!! Mary is in heaven. We are NOT to make any likeness of her according to Exodus 20:4. So what do you call a statue of mother Mary? It surely is a likeness of her, a graven image! Here's another shocker...

[size=15pt]"Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them..." —Exodus 20:5[/size]


Above: Roman Catholics sinfully BOWING in idolatry to a statue of Mary.

Ok, so then why does every Catholic BOW DOWN before a statue of Mary in their worship places? I'll tell you why... because they are practicing FALSE religion totally void of the truth of God. You can argue whether or not you are worshipping Mary as your bowing down to her; but one thing is for certain, God has commanded us in Exodus 20:5 NOT TO BOW DOWN to her.

[size=15pt]Even if your not worshipping Mary, you ARE SINNING if you bow down to her because the Bible strictly forbids it in Exodus 20:5![/size]
As I write, millions of people all around the world are bowing down to Mary in violation of God's Word. Yes, Satanism is in the Vatican!

We all should know that it was a human being that built or carved those statues so bowing down to it is like bowing to house or chair etc. Same with the crisifix and any thing made to symbolise God or christ and not forgetting the pictures too.

Your copy and paste is simply a collection of fairy tales.


1st, A Halo in Christian art does not mean that tthe person portrayed is a diety, if paul is drawn in Christian art he will have a halo, if peter is drawn there will be a halo, the same applies to andrew, thomas, bartholomew and a host of others, you will see a halo in all ancients churches even anglican churches, it doesn't mean diety, it means glory, it means that the person has been glorified by God. That is the meaning of a halo. Make research and stop believing everything u are told.

Second the upside down cross u see in that picture of pope johnpaul has nothing to do with satanism or idolatry, it is a very specific cross with a particular story. Peter died crucified in case you don't know, peter was crucified upside down, all you need to do is study history. The roman see is historically know as the see of peter becos d church of rome was established by peter and that was the church he was leading before his death. The upside down cross is in reference to peter.

Lastly, no commandment is ommitted by catholics, infact the decalogue consist of about 12or 13 statements. An ancient numbering is to number, thou shall not make for yourselve... With serve no God except... That isn't proof of idolatry that is simply a numbering system of the commandments.

Wonders shall never end ooo. So Catholics are also creating the upside down cross of brother Peter. Do you, people also bow before the cross of brother Peter? That is why I like this song "JESUS ONLY IS OUR MESSAGE"

If you should say that there is “You shall not make any graven images" in catechism of the catholic church, why do Catholics still make images of Mary? and Why do Catholics still bow before the images of Mary and whereas it is clearly written that "Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them..." —Exodus 20:5?

Go and read up on symbolism especially in the early church, a fish is a symbol of Christ and upside down cross in a popes chair is a symbol of the see of peter.

Don't you know that new testament is the fulfillment of certain things written or done in the old testament?

Why don't you slaughter ram or lamb for sacrifice unto God?

(*) In the old testament, Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness but in the new testament, Christ Jesus, the Son of man has been lifted up. With this, we don't need to lift up bronze serpent again for people to be saved. He, Jesus has replaced the serpent. (John 3:14) This serpent was used as a symbol then but now Jesus has lifted up on the cross. DO YOU STILL LIFT UP BRONZE SERPENT IN CATHOLIC CHURCH?

(*) In the old testament, lamb was commonly used to sacrifice unto God but now Jesus has replaced the lamb (John 1:29) and that is thy He is called the sacrificial Lamb of GOD. As a result, we do not need to sacrifice lamb or ram unto GOD before we receive forgiveness from God. DO YOU STILL SACRIFICE LAMB OR RAM IN CATHOLIC CHURCH?

(*) The Old Testament predicts a Messiah (see Isaiah 53), and the New Testament reveals who the Messiah is (John 4:25–26)

(*) The Old Testament records the giving of God’s Law, and the New Testament shows how Jesus the Messiah fulfilled that Law (Matthew 5:17; Hebrews 10:9)

(*) In the Old Testament, God’s dealings are mainly with His chosen people, the Jews; in the New Testament, God’s dealings are mainly with His church (Matthew 16:18).

(*) Physical blessings promised under the Old Covenant (Deuteronomy 29:9) give way to spiritual blessings under the New Covenant (Ephesians 1:3)

As per the Ark of Covenant, you really need a Sunday School Class, or better still a Friday School Class :

Study the following carefully:

God made a covenant (a conditional covenant) with the children of Israel through His servant Moses. He promised good to them and their children for generations if they obeyed Him and His laws; but He always warned of despair, punishment, and dispersion if they were to disobey. As a sign of His covenant He had the Israelites make a box according to His own design, in which to place the stone tablets containing the Ten Commandments. This box, or chest, was called an “ark” and was made of acacia wood overlaid with gold. The Ark was to be housed in the inner sanctum of the tabernacle in the desert and eventually in the Temple when it was built in Jerusalem. This chest is known as the Ark of the Covenant.

The real significance of the Ark of the Covenant was what took place involving the lid of the box, known as the "Mercy Seat." The term ‘mercy seat’ comes from a Hebrew word meaning “to cover, placate, appease, cleanse, cancel or make atonement for.” It was here that the high priest, only once a year (Leviticus 16), entered the Holy of Holies where the Ark was kept and atoned for his sins and the sins of the Israelites. The priest sprinkled blood of a sacrificed animal onto the Mercy Seat to appease the wrath and anger of God for past sins committed. This was the only place in the world where this atonement could take place.

The Mercy Seat on the Ark was a symbolic foreshadowing of the ultimate sacrifice for all sin—the blood of Christ shed on the cross for the remission of sins. The Apostle Paul, a former Pharisee and one familiar with the Old Testament, knew this concept quite well when he wrote about Christ being our covering for sin in Romans 3:24-25: "…and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith." Just as there was only one place for atonement of sins in the Old Testament—the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant—so there is also only one place for atonement in the New Testament and current times—the cross of Jesus Christ. AS CHRISTIANS, WE NO LONGER LOOK TO THE ARK BUT TO THE LORD JESUS HIMSELF AS THE PROPITIATION AND ATONEMENT FOR OUR SINS.

ejikeme:
what is salvation please?

Apologies for the late reply!

Salvation is deliverance from danger or suffering. To save is to deliver or protect. The word carries the idea of victory, health, or preservation.

Sometimes, the Bible uses the
words saved or salvation to refer
to temporal, physical deliverance, such as Paul’s deliverance from prison ( Philippians 1:19).

More often, the word “salvation”
concerns an eternal, spiritual
deliverance. When Paul told the
Philippian jailer what he must do to be saved, he was referring to the jailer’s eternal destiny (Acts 16:30-31). Jesus equated being saved with entering the kingdom of God ( Matthew 19:24-25).

What are we saved from?

In the Christian doctrine of salvation, we are saved from “wrath,” that is, from God’s judgment of sin ( Romans 5:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:9). Our sin has separated us from God, and the consequence of sin is death ( Romans 6:23).
Biblical salvation refers to our
deliverance from the consequence of sin and therefore involves the removal of sin.

Who does the saving?

Only God can remove sin and deliver us from sin’s penalty ( 2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 3:5). How does God save? In the Christian doctrine of salvation, God has rescued us through Christ ( John 3:17). Specifically, it was Jesus’ death on the cross and subsequent resurrection that achieved our salvation ( Romans 5:10; Ephesians 1:7).
Scripture is clear that salvation is
the gracious, undeserved gift of
God ( Ephesians 2:5, cool and is only available through faith in Jesus Christ ( Acts 4:12).

How do we receive salvation?

We are saved by faith.
First, we must hear the gospel—the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection ( Ephesians 1:13).
Then, we must believe—fully trust the Lord Jesus ( Romans 1:16). This involves repentance, a changing of mind about sin and Christ ( Acts 3:19), and calling on the name of the Lord ( Romans 10:9-10, 13).

A definition of the Christian
doctrine of salvation would be
“The deliverance, by the grace of
God, from eternal punishment for sin which is granted to those who accept by faith God’s conditions of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus.”

Salvation is available in Jesus alone ( John 14:6; Acts 4:12) and is
dependent on God alone for provision, assurance, and security.

Jeremiah 17:5

Thank you my brother!
Before someone will come here to start asking you the exact verse in the book of Acts, let me quote the verse below:
"And when they were come in, they went up into an UPPER ROOM,..." Acts 1:13

"These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the WOMEN, and MARY the mother of Jesus, and with his brethen" Acts 1:14.

In the above verses, it is evident that Mary was present on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1), she was part of those that were filled with the Holy Ghost and that spoke with other tongues (Acts 2:4).
She must have had her WATER BAPTISM before the HOLY GHOST BAPTISM. That is a fact! Because Holy Spirit can never reside in you if you have not accepted the Lord into your life

This means that Mary is not in Heaven simply because she is the Mother of Jesus but she needed Jesus Christ, her Saviour and her Lord (Luke 1:46) before she could get to Heaven. She got born again with the evidence of the above Bible verses.

NOTE: Mary is constantly referred to as "Mother of Jesus" in the Bible but the Catholics keep referring to her as Mother of .....that will be another topic for another day by the grace of God.

GOD BLESS YOU SIR

If you should say that there is “You shall not make any graven images" in catechism of the catholic church, why do Catholics still make images of Mary? and Why do Catholics still bow before the images of Mary and whereas it is clearly written that "Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them..." —Exodus 20:5?




So you will not acknowledge that your reference to the upside down cross was made out of ignorance?

SHOW ME IN THE BIBLE WHERE a fish is a symbol of Christ

Sarcastically, I think your praying, worshiping and bowing down before the image of Mary shows that you have the perfect understanding of the scriptures....Hahahahaha........ NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CATHOLICISM AND IDOL WORSHIPING RELIGIONS
Show me sola scriptura in the Bible first?

Don't you know that new testament is the fulfillment of certain things written or done in the old testament?

Why don't you slaughter ram or lamb for sacrifice unto God?

(*) In the old testament, Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness but in the new testament, Christ Jesus, the Son of man has been lifted up. With this, we don't need to lift up bronze serpent again for people to be saved. He, Jesus has replaced the serpent. (John 3:14) This serpent was used as a symbol then but now Jesus has lifted up on the cross. DO YOU STILL LIFT UP BRONZE SERPENT IN CATHOLIC CHURCH?

(*) In the old testament, lamb was commonly used to sacrifice unto God but now Jesus has replaced the lamb (John 1:29) and that is thy He is called the sacrificial Lamb of GOD. As a result, we do not need to sacrifice lamb or ram unto GOD before we receive forgiveness from God. DO YOU STILL SACRIFICE LAMB OR RAM IN CATHOLIC CHURCH?

(*) The Old Testament predicts a Messiah (see Isaiah 53), and the New Testament reveals who the Messiah is (John 4:25–26)

(*) The Old Testament records the giving of God’s Law, and the New Testament shows how Jesus the Messiah fulfilled that Law (Matthew 5:17; Hebrews 10:9)

(*) In the Old Testament, God’s dealings are mainly with His chosen people, the Jews; in the New Testament, God’s dealings are mainly with His church (Matthew 16:18).

(*) Physical blessings promised under the Old Covenant (Deuteronomy 29:9) give way to spiritual blessings under the New Covenant (Ephesians 1:3)

As per the Ark of Covenant, you really need a Sunday School Class, or better still a Friday School Class :

Study the following carefully:

God made a covenant (a conditional covenant) with the children of Israel through His servant Moses. He promised good to them and their children for generations if they obeyed Him and His laws; but He always warned of despair, punishment, and dispersion if they were to disobey. As a sign of His covenant He had the Israelites make a box according to His own design, in which to place the stone tablets containing the Ten Commandments. This box, or chest, was called an “ark” and was made of acacia wood overlaid with gold. The Ark was to be housed in the inner sanctum of the tabernacle in the desert and eventually in the Temple when it was built in Jerusalem. This chest is known as the Ark of the Covenant.

The real significance of the Ark of the Covenant was what took place involving the lid of the box, known as the "Mercy Seat." The term ‘mercy seat’ comes from a Hebrew word meaning “to cover, placate, appease, cleanse, cancel or make atonement for.” It was here that the high priest, only once a year (Leviticus 16), entered the Holy of Holies where the Ark was kept and atoned for his sins and the sins of the Israelites. The priest sprinkled blood of a sacrificed animal onto the Mercy Seat to appease the wrath and anger of God for past sins committed. This was the only place in the world where this atonement could take place.

The Mercy Seat on the Ark was a symbolic foreshadowing of the ultimate sacrifice for all sin—the blood of Christ shed on the cross for the remission of sins. The Apostle Paul, a former Pharisee and one familiar with the Old Testament, knew this concept quite well when he wrote about Christ being our covering for sin in Romans 3:24-25: "…and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith." Just as there was only one place for atonement of sins in the Old Testament—the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant—so there is also only one place for atonement in the New Testament and current times—the cross of Jesus Christ. AS CHRISTIANS, WE NO LONGER LOOK TO THE ARK BUT TO THE LORD JESUS HIMSELF AS THE PROPITIATION AND ATONEMENT FOR OUR SINS.
In other words God used to allow people to commit the sin of idolatry? That's what you are saying right?

Thank you sir and Goodbye!

Watch out for another great false doctrine or tradition next week by the grace of the Lord God

The bold is proof that the rest of this post and all your other posts were typed in ignorance.

Since you are ignorant, why are you trying to teach the Catholic Church?

My brother, you should be able to understand the statement.
If I say "I do not know anything", you should be able to deduce the message I was trying to pass across to you and anyone that reads my replies. I will refer you to the Bible again.

In Matthew 19:16-17, Mark 10:17-18 and Luke 18:18-19, when a certain ruler called Jesus a GOOD MASTER, Jesus replied "...there is none good but one that is, God"

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE JESUS CHRIST WAS TRYING TO PASS ACROSS TO THE MAN? and Remember, Jesus is God in flesh and still God in Heaven.
Even with His reply, He was referring to Himself but endeavour to understand the intent of the man calling Him a GOOD MASTER and the reason for His reply.
