Luke 11:27-28 "And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto Jesus, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it."
Jesus could have applauded this woman's statement, he could have instructed her to indeed bless the womb that bore Him. He did not do or say such a thing.
How can one square early Church tradition which doesn't show reverence and devotion to Mary until 400 A.D. with the Scriptures which after the nativity say next to nothing about her which would warrant the idol worship given to her by Roman Catholics.
Mary was born with Adam & Eves fallen nature and needed to be "born again of the spirit" also and Jesus died for Marys sins as well.

Hay Catholics take a good hard look at those photos above! And you still say no we don't worship idols! Yea right. Disgusting!!

Why not for once, give it try, step away from your self induced ignorance.

I refer people back to posts #2, 5, and 8 and read them objectively. Nothing derogatory was said. And yet some are offended. So be it. I presented the true Bibilcal perspective of what a saint is. And some don't like it. I am interested in pleasing God. Not man.

The pictures you post of statues of Jesus's mother do nothing but increase the faith of Orthodox Catholics.

Similarly, the rosary, which is a meditation on the life of Jesus Christ, is one of the most powerful weapons Christians have in the spiritual war in which we are engaged.

I feel very sorry for people like you, who have been indoctrinated in anti-Catholic bigotry.

Your Catholic-baiting is disgusting. It must be the product of an "interesting" religious upbringing. I can't even imagine what goes on at your church

If you want to argue doctrine like an adult, please contribute. If not, please find a home at the "Berean Call" or "Rapture Ready" where this kind of Catholic-baiting and bashing is allowed under the TOS and is hence the norm.
