Truth of Scripture vs. Catholic Tradition and Idolatry

After nearly 2,000 yrs wouldn’t you think the Catholic Church would come clean, get it straight, (get honest before God and man), and admit their traditions and Mary worship are pure idolatry and cry out to God, the only Holy Father, for mercy, repenting of their many sins? Obviously, the Catholic Church has not repented. Pope Francis is in the news constantly continuing with the RCC’s false gospel and Marian worship, and dragging millions of Catholics with him into condemnation.

On the News that Matters Blog, ivarfjeld posted an article in 2011 on another Catholic Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a big time Catholic celebration honoring their false goddess,  during which Pope Benedict, who was the pope du jour of 2011, spoke more hypocricies concerning Mary, the mother of Jesus.  Do these so-called “infallible” pope’s make this stuff up as they go along? Do they really believe their own schtick, and expect their devoted followers to buy into it hook, line and sinker?

Pope Benedict said:

The ‘Immaculate One’ reflects with all of her person the light of the ‘sun,’ which is God.”

How can any rational person miss the lie in that statement coming from a man, the Pope, the false “vicar of Christ” who leads millions?

Yet the Bible records differently. “While Jesus was saying these things, one of the women in the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, “Blessed is the womb that bore You and the breasts at which You nursed.” But He said, “On the contrary, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.” Luke 11:27-28

Yes, on the contrary indeed! Who are we going to believe, the words of a pope and false prophet….or, the words of Jesus recorded in holy scripture. Jesus never gave inordinate honor to anyone, even to His own mother!

I especially liked the comments on Ivarfejeld’s article, one of which responded to a Catholic person’s argument very powerfully. It’s a post within a post! Hurray for him and all who contend for the Faith. Catholics may be offended, but I pray they will open their eyes and hearts to the Truth. It’s faith in the Truth which is in Jesus Christ alone, not illusions and traditions, which will determine our ultimate destiny.

“Dear England, do you think there is any love in catholic church at all? Let’s see your so-called catholic spiritual leader Pope Benedict is the former Hitler youth elected pope….

Ivar is right, the woman in revelation 19 is catholic church. The Great Whore.
“For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication…” ―Revelation 19:2
Mary (the mother of Jesus) is not the great whore; Catholicism’s Mother Mary (the Catholic religion) is the Great Whore!
“For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore (Roman Catholicism), which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.” ―Revelation 19:2)
“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists (Popes and priests); whereby we know that it is the last time” ―1st John 2:18
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color (official Vatican colors), and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls (the Vatican is filthy rich), having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations (the Holocaust, inquisitions, etc.) and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY (very few people realize where the Catholic religion started), BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS (Many heathen religions have spawned out of Catholicism, such as Lutheranism) AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” ―Revelation 17:4,5

Catholicism’s ill-gotten children profess to know Christ but do service to Satan by disregarding the commandments of God in order to keep the traditions of men which papists even themselves call “TRADITION.” Why she (the whore) is called a mystery? The antichrist spirit of ancient pagan Babylon, though seemingly long fallen, lives in the rites and blasphemies of the Roman Catholic religion. Now that ancient Babylonian false religion lives today within the Catholic religion, disguised by Christian names. What a Satanic scam! The queen of heaven is now… Mary! Mystery Babylon lives, undetected by doomed millions across the world. Mary is NOT our co-redeemer!
“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
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).
“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

Hail Mary! Hail Satan!
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? Talk about crazy! God clearly command us in the second of the Ten Commandments NOT to make unto ourselves ANY graven images.
“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…
“Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them…” ―Exodus 20:5
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. Even if your not worshipping Mary, you ARE SINNING if you bow down to her because the Bible strictly forbids it! 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!
“Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” ―Mark 7:7
“For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” ―Mark 13:22

Roman Catholicism: The Cult of Mary

“Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” ―Mark 7:7
“For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” ―Mark 13:22
Pope Benedict is the former Hitler youth elected pope.”

Pope praying to a statue of Mary with a crown on it’s head. I say “it” because it’s only a statue, a graven image.

 

Virgin Mary was Not a “Perpetual Virgin”

Did the young Jewish woman Mary remain a virgin AFTER Jesus Christ was born into this world? The answer is absolutely NO! In fact Mary gave birth to several other children AFTER the birth of Jesus! Mary and Joseph had a natural marital sexual relationship, AFTER the birth of Jesus Christ into this world.  Read the Bible for yourself!

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And KNEW HER NOT TILL she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS. (Matthew 1:22-25)

Reading this may upset some folks who’ve been taught that the “Virgin Mary” so-called, the mother of Jesus, remained a virgin until the end of her life. But, this doesn’t line up with what the scriptures have to say about it. This is where we need to go to get the truth and keep from being deceived.  I was checking out some scripture in Mark ch.6 today, where it speaks of folks in Jesus country, or hometown, who knew him, and had probably known him as he grew up. They knew he was trained as a carpenter, (this was before he began his ministry), and they knew his mother and his brothers and sisters. 

6 And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.

And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

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.

But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.

And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.

And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching. Mark 6

 

More proofs!

It seems many folks will try to shove a round peg into a square hole, in an attempt to force it into their own belief system. For example, on YouTube, one Catholic guy claimed he had a “special grace” that “proved” that Jesus didn’t have any siblings. His “reasoning” consisted of the fact that Jesus had the Apostle John care for Mary, and that it would naturally follow if Jesus had brothers, (siblings), then of course they would have taken Mary into their home. Well, sorry, but that isn’t “proof”. It’s just carnal reasoning, or as the Word says, “leaning to ones own understanding”. The following is a more logical scenario; as we can see, Jesus brothers in the natural were not believers, they were scornful of him and possibly envious. Mary on the other hand, was not only the mother of Jesus but a devout believer and follower as well. Why would Jesus designate unbelieving, scornful jealous brothers to take care of his precious mother? Also, there is no record of his sibling brothers present at Jesus crucifixion.

7 After this, Jesus went around in Galilee. He did not want[a] to go about in Judea because the Jewish leaders there were looking for a way to kill him. 2 But when the Jewish Festival of Tabernacles was near, 3 Jesus’ brothers said to him, “Leave Galilee and go to Judea, so that your disciples there may see the works you do. 4 No one who wants to become a public figure acts in secret. Since you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.” 5 For even his own brothers did not believe in him. John 7 (This text is in all English versions)

6 Therefore Jesus told them, “My time is not yet here; for you any time will do. 7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that its works are evil. 8 You go to the festival. I am not[b] going up to this festival, because my time has not yet fully come.” 9 After he had said this, he stayed in Galilee.

10 However, after his brothers had left for the festival, he went also, not publicly, but in secret. 11 Now at the festival the Jewish leaders were watching for Jesus and asking, “Where is he?”

 

It says what it says! No matter what “tradition” had to say about it. “Tradition” had to be based on something, but it didn’t precede the actual happenings of the miraculous birth of Jesus. “Tradition” wasn’t there, present, at the birth of the Christ child. No, the original scriptures are what counts. The scripture, the LOGOS, the written Word of God trumps tradition, no matter what you’ve been told or taught.  Can you see how it changes EVERYTHING to know the Truth about just these crucial verses!! If they’d lie to you about this, then what else would they lie about? Good question, huh? 

Folks, you don’t have to be a bible scholar, a member of the “clergy class”, a “theologian”, etc. God has given you a mind to comprehend and use, rather than taking a man, or even a multitude of men’s  say so about it. You can read the scriptures for yourself and understand the essence, the “gist” of it just fine, if you will just do it. Jesus said so, if YOU will do it, not someone else trying to do it for you. They might get it wrong, or….it may be that someone deceived them, or….it could be Satan at work again, trying to deceive everyone, as he has from the beginning, and we KNOW he has an agenda. Read and continue in Jesus Word, the Bible, as he has said;

“Then said Jesus to those Jews who believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed;

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. “John 8: 31-32

Again! Mary had other children! At least 7 including Jesus, according to the above scripture, the inspired Word of God!  It is an abomination to God to add to, or take away from the scriptures, which men have done in this and many other instances. Do not be part of this any longer. We must get into the Word of God ourselves, or we aren’t going to be able to stand in the evil day, and we will be deceived.
