I’ve never had a Roman Catholic willing to tell me…

I’ve never had a Roman Catholic willing to tell me how they venerate Mary and then tell me how they worship Jesus and then tell me what the difference is between their veneration and their worship. They avoid this like the plague because then they would have to get honest and admit they are worshiping Mary. With praying to Mary she is supposed to hear the thoughts of a person, not only one person but it can be millions at once all over the world. The RCC has made her omnipotent and omnipresent and omniscience to be able to do this feat. Over the years the RCC has had dogma creep in to have Mary parallel Jesus so that she becomes his equal. Catholics talk about Jesus and Mary like they are coequal redeemers. We need to educate them in biblical truth. When I was a catholic we were never encouraged to read the bible. If catholics were to read the bible their whole house of cards would fail. I used to think all this catholic dogma was taken directly from the bible and couldn’t understand why protestants wotld reject bible teaching. It was when I started reading the bible that I realized I was lied to. I have been saved since from religion to relationship.

    The origins of the Mary theology date back to the period of time immediately after the first council of Nicaea. During that counsel the debate was on whether Jesus was coternal and coequal with God or not. One side said he was heteroousios, different substance, one said homoousios, the same substance. At one point a compromised term wise offered to say that he was of similar substance, homoiousios. they chose same substance and the foundations of those developed trinitarian dogma. (I’m not saying the trinity is wrong) by the time of a few hundred years later the question arose, “ if Jesus is the same substance as God what is his mother?” Is she to be called in theology “christotokos” mother of Christ/Christ bearer, or “theotokos” mother of god/god bearer. This seems like a logical progression based on the terms that were chosen at Nicaea and upheld at the first council of Constantinople. Out of these discussions came a sect of Marian devotion that was rooted in the traditions of a Christian denomination that likely predates the first iteration of the universal church. Like most things with human beings it’s roots are innocent and logical enough, but look at what it becomes in time? It’s a very interesting topic. The first generation reformers were still very Catholic on this view also, it’s not until a few generations of print Bibles have been in circulation the people really started to question the ologies based on her relative absence given the position of authority she has. There’s also the issue of the translation of the Latin Vulgate which was canonized in about 380 AD, when Erasmus retranslated the new Greek and Latin in the 1500s he was shocked to find the language used regarding mary to be not so sound. An interesting caveat, I have found in my research that many places with alleged Marian apparitions are places where catholic power, bureaucracy, and influence in politics was being challenged by the secular government and civilian populations. This is an interesting phenomenon. It does all raise a good question worthy of consideration. What level of honor is due for the mother of the living God. What should it look like? Great topic.

    For me the Protestant house of cards fell in reading my Bible. Several of those Marian titles click together fine without being equal to Jesus if one understands David’s kingdom fulfilled in Christ

  4. Ian Demonguitan says:

    Jesus is the “ONLY” way, the “TRUTH” and the “LIFE”. Outside Him there is no truth. Jesus the mediator between God and men. Period. 🔥

  5. Linda Ann Wolfenbarger says:

    Angels & the aposrles always refused worship. Jesus never did tell people to stop worshipping Him. Everytime He am an “I Am” statement He was claiming to be God. The Jews knew that & 3 times tried to kill Him for blasphemy. Didn’t work, of course, because it easn’t His time to die.

  6. Lisa Hensley Gonzalez says:

    I have a friend who struggled for several years to reconcile the Bible against the Catholic Faith. He met with his priest nearly daily with new questions that the priest could never quite satisfactorily answer. One day his priest looked at him and said, “Paul, this isn’t helping is it? We haven’t gotten anywhere in all this time.” That’s when my friend decided he needed to leave the Catholic Church. He spent time with the Jesuits, and still could not reconcile everything, and they wanted him to be ordained! He ultimately said no, and after several more years of study, became a Baptist!

  7. Chukwu Amarachi Marcus says:

    I was a Pentecostal before joining the Catholics. Your criticism is Good but our division is wrong. The truth is if praying to someone means worshipping, I wonder if Jesus worship another God apart from him and why should Jesus worship a God other than him when there is only one God? Mary is honoured even though to me it is excessive honour. I don’t believe in rosary and praying to Mary to be Frank yet am a Catholic by #congregation and the funny thing here about me is am a Unitarian among trinitarians.

  8. Jeremiah Waldrop says:

    Good point about Mary. Problem I’ve found is that many have turned from Catholicism to a belief that Christians have to sin, all the while thinking they have a relationship with Jesus.

  9. Antonius Priyohartono says:

    All protestants.

    Jesus established His One Infallible Authoritative and Teaching Church (cf Mat 16:18; 18:17-18; 28:19-20; Luk 10:16; John 14:16).

    Jesus commands is quite clear LISTEN TO HIS CHURCH.

    “Whoever listens to you listens to me; whoever rejects you rejects me; but whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me.”(Luke 10:16)

    If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.(Matthew 18:17)

    So I ask you a yes no question.

    Have you listen/ obey to His Church?

  10. Juan G. Flores says:

    Why do we attack each other instead discussing/debating our differences in love and fellowship. I grew up Catholic and now consider myself a Christian. As a Christian I develop amicable relationships with people before trying to correct them in their doctrine. We have to present the truth of God with Truth and Grace. If not, we are the same as “clanging cymbals”, making a lot of noise but not doing anything to win others to the kingdom. Apologetics is about defending the faith not attacking others with the “Big Thumper” as some call the Bible. Love them, don’t lecture them!

  11. Juan G. Flores says:

    You’re being deceptive by using this verse (Mt. 18:17 as this has to do with a brother or sister that sins, not about doctrine. MT. 18:15 If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you.” This us a great example of taking a verse out of context to try to prove something totally unrelated.

  12. Barry Beutell says:

    Mary was chosen by God to perform a unique role as the mother of Jesus, the man. Her acceptance of her calling is inspiring (Luke 1:46-56). Official RCC teaching venerates Mary, but some Catholic pray to her.
    As a cradle Catholic who respects the Church, praying to Mary, canonized saints, statues, etc. are at best questionable.

  13. Joe McGinley says:

    Do Catholics believe that if you don’t pray to Mary, or ask her for help, or if you don’t believe she’s a higher person and worthy of adoration, you are not going to heaven?

  14. Jebong B. Garcia says:

    They venerate Mary even more compared to Jesus. You can’t be forgiven as long as Mary would mediate in behalf of your wrong doings, and make it even more absurd when they confess and ask forgiveness of their sins and believe these venerated men on Earth they called priests can really do so.

  15. Tracy L Terry says:

    I was brought up in Catholic church. Made to confess before priests who made me say Hail Mary prayers and bow to her at the alters. She found favor in The Lord’s sight and bore Jesus. She had a huge undertaking, as all who found favor with The Lord. Her task was great, but… Though shall have no other Gods before me. No graven images (statues of Mary), false idols. And Jesus made it clear to me right here in Luke 11 27And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. 28But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

    DAVID FORESEE THE 21st CENTURY TRAGEDY THAT WILL BEFALL THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD.
    👇
    Psalms 9:16 God made himself known and executed judgment on the nations of the earth;

    the wicked [the people in the name of God]
    are taken or catch to die and suffer in the work of their own hands. 👉 The corona virus is the work of this 21st century own hands…….killing us at the end.👉💯% true.

    17…The wicked will return to destruction, all the nations that forget God.

    18… For the poor will not always be forgotten or the hope of the needy perish forever. 👉 💯% true, tell me which poor person the virus as affected around you.

    19…Arise, God!
    Don’t let mortals prevail!
    Let the nations be judged in your presence. 👉 Because of this 👇

    In a book called PAPA II VOL. VI Page 29.

    👉Says, ” The Bishop of Rome is of a great authority and power that can modify, explain and interpret even divine laws of God…..
    The Bishop of Rome can modify divine laws since his power is not of man, but of God, and he Acts as representative of God upon the earth.

    👉 So God almighty strike Rome Italy where the So called God representatives are to see the power they claim to enslave God people in the world.

    What is the result the So-Called God representatives are dying like fouls in Italy?

    And in another book called 👉 DIGNITY AND DUTIES OF THE PRIEST page 34 LIGONIER.

    👉Says, ” were the Redeemer of the humanity to decent into confessional to administer the sacrament of sinners,
    A priest is to sit in place of Jesus Christ in the confessional administration and say over to a sinner ” For I forgive you of your sins and the sins are forgiven.”

    🤦‍♂ and millions believe this following the Catholic church in the name of God.

    Psalms 9:20…God Strike them with terror, 👉 The terror is the corona virus.
    God!
    Let the nations know they are only human.

    After this according to the bible words it will last for seven months until the world know through a means of God words that God truly exist and he rules the nations of the earth.

    God challenged the Bishops and pope with the virus as his so-called representative to stop it if they really have the power as they claim,

    What is the outcome?

    The Bishops and pope run for their life’s and some died in Rome Italy check the news.
    👇
    God challenged them before today in Isaiah 41:20 That they may see what will happen, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this,

    and the Holy One of Israel hath created the virus through the humans….💯% true.
    👇
    Now you know God is responsible of all the happenings of the earth he said in 41:21… Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons,….

    41:22 Let the world bring the Bishops and pope forth, and shew us what shall happen: They are🤫

    let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them;

    or declare us things for to come. 👉 Since they are representing God to change his laws from Saturday worship of God to their Sungod day of worship👉SUNDAY.

    Check the 773,746 words of the bible according to KJV bible, there is no word called ” SUNDAY” 👉 Proverbs 30:6 Add thou not unto God’s words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

    The Catholic church are liars according to the written words of God.

    41:23… Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods:

    yes,

    God said do good,
    or
    do evil,

    that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.

    41:24… Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that choose the Catholic church. 👉🤷‍♂

    41:26… Who hath declared from the beginning, that we may know?
    and beforetime, that we may say, He is righteous except God Almighty?

    yes,

    there is none that shew in Rome Italy rather they are running and dying,
    yes,
    there is none that declare in Rome Italy because they are running,

    yes,

    there is none that hear word of God from Rome Italy now. 👉 Because there is no church gathering to tell the world your words you called word of God for money power and respect.

    From the Catechism of the Catholic Church. 2131 Basing itself on the mystery of the incarnate Word, the seventh ecumenical council at Nicaea justified against the iconoclasts the veneration of icons – of Christ, but also of the Mother of God, the angels, and all the saints. By becoming incarnate, the Son of God introduced a new “economy” of images.

    2132 The Christian veneration of images is not contrary to the first commandment which proscribes idols. Indeed, “the honor rendered to an image passes to its prototype,” and “whoever venerates an image venerates the person portrayed in it.” The honor paid to sacred images is a “respectful veneration,” not the adoration due to God alone:

    Religious worship is not directed to images in themselves, considered as mere things, but under their distinctive aspect as images leading us on to God incarnate. The movement toward the image does not terminate in it as image, but tends toward that whose image it is.
