Well here she is, the most famous idol on earth… the super-glorified man-made version of Mary:
- The Queen of Heaven (only God doesn’t know she’s the queen)…
- The Mother of God (only God never had a mother)…
- Our Lady Of Grace
- The Blessed Virgin
The one, the only, the goddess of … plaster, the Catholic Virgin Mary! Want to feel devout and holy?… stick her in your front yard. Want to feel safe while driving?… stick her on the dashboard of your motor vehicle. She’s portable and available in quantity. She’s quiet. She’ll never talk back to you. She’s a goddess that won’t interfere in your life, unless you use her for a doorstop and accidentally trip over her. So, what’s the greatest part of having her around? She will make you feel quite comfortable in your spiritually dead condition. And what could be better than that?
Please note: the Catholic Mary is NOT the REAL Mary of the Bible. The real Mary was not a perpetual virgin, but had children with her husband Joseph as the Bible makes clear in Matthew 12:46, Matthew 13:55-56, Mark 6:3, Galatians 1:19 and elsewhere.
These porcelain statues are no more than idols. People bow down to these things and pray to them. Shame on them! God alone is worthy of the worship and adoration that people give to these dried pieces of clay. And the poor deceived souls that worship them have been well discipled into thinking that they are not really worshipping idols. They claim it is not worship and they claim they are praying to the person behind the idol or associated with the idol. Yet they are NO DIFFERENT in their actions and attitudes towards their Mary and “saint” idols than the Buddhists are towards their Buddha dolls or the Hindus are towards their elephant statues.
More Catholic Idols:
Many Catholics cling to their idols as if they were in fact real gods and goddesses. They don’t realize they are acting just like the idol worshippers at the time of the apostle Paul who got this reaction when he told people their idols were not to be worshipped or venerated…
“Moreover ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands: So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth. And when they heard these sayings, they were full of wrath, and cried out, saying, Great is Diana of the Ephesians.” [Acts 19:26-28]
“Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God? But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not: They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not: They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat. They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.” [Psalms 115:2-8]
Matthew 12:46 – “While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.”
Matthew 13:55-56 – “Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?”
Mark 6:3 – “Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.”
Galatians 1:19 – “But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother.”
Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
