I Stopped Praying To Mary

Why doesn't Mary answer? I tried praying to Mary and it seems she doesn't hear me, but when I pray to the Father in Jesus name, my prayers do get answered. Lately there has been a change in me. It started when I asked God to show me the way. What's up?

Your Spirit and Soul never ever die

Thats a lie

Everlasting life is only used in Gods Word to describe salvation it isnt used to describe death ...there is no "life/death" in Gods Word.

hell is a fable

When you asked God to show you the way with a sincere heart He certainly did ...prayers to mary are idolatrous breaking the 2nd commandment

When I read of my brothers and sisters in Christ praying to Mary it cause my soul to grieve.

I believe Mary would say the same thing the angel said to John:
Re 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Lisa, God doesn't get annoyed with us when we pray. God wants us to pray because prayer brings us closer to God. God knows what we need, He doesn't need us to ask for help! The asking for help is for US! :-)

Amen, LoveOneAnother!

Mary is dead. She cannot hear anyone speaking. The dead are dead until the resurrection of the dead.
---LoveOneAnother on 5/27/08

I am not a Catholic, but God doesn't tell us to pray to Mary.
Mary is Jesus' Mother, and in our effort to share truth, we shouldn't be disrespectful in any way towards her.

Repetitious prayers of any kind are not pleasing to God's ears. Whether they be to Mary or simply writing down your personal wish list, speaking them out, day after day, they're not pleasing. God says not to be repetitious, even praying the Our Father 100X in a row is not how He intended for us to pray.
---lisa on 5/27/08

Lisa, Snap out of it.Your living in a dream land.The Bible has more to say about hell than about heaven...It's a place of no escape.It is a place of torment...The Body of the dead lie in the grave and go back to dust until Harpazo...Your Spirit and Soul never ever die.And upon your departure your spirit and soul will go to one of two places...Either heaven or hell.
Real Simple. Read the Book so that You won't end up there.And stop taking the place called hell so casual.It is a horrible place to go.
---Elisabeth on 5/27/08

When we pray to others we giving glory to others and not to JESUS.

If I go to a friend and say please pray for me. That is not praying.

But a person gets down on their knees in front of a statue nd prays oh please heal me saint ? O Mother Mary save me. They are not going to JESUS.

In the Middle ages the RCC taught that you could not go to JESUS directly we were too sinful. That is where this came from.
---Samuel on 5/27/08

You have found the true path to salvation.We are never to pray to any man,woman,statue or any idol. We pray to God our Father in Jesus' name--only. The Catholic church has hurt so many good people through their damnable teachings and ungodly belief system.
You know the way now. You are out of that devil system. Praise God for it(finding the true way) and stay away from that evil system.
---Robyn on 5/27/08

Niel, thank God that He gave you the graces to finally figure it out. Mary doesn't answer you. Jesus her Son is the one who answers, heals, saves and protects you. The Bible leads you to Him as well. You wouldn't except the Bible to answer you directly without the Holy Spirit would you? No. You were confused about the role of Mary in Jesus' Salvation.

I am happy God showed you the way.
Remember, Mary isn't the end, she leads you to the Alpha and the Omega, our Lord and Salvior Jesus Christ.

Only dead people are in hell.Rev20:13-The sea gave up the dead in it-Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them-they were judged-each one according to his works.Matt10:28-don't fear those who kill the body but can't kill the soul.But rather fear Him who's able to destroy both soul and body in hell.Prov9:18-But he does not know that the dead are there-That her guests are in the depths of hell.The Blessed Mother of the Lord your God is not Dead, she is in heaven with her Son-The GreatI-AM.

Mary was blessed among women because she was chosen to bare Jesus the human child. The Holy spirit did the rest. I love Mary because she is among the body of Christ, but if you pray to her you are defying God because your ingnoring His ONLY provision, and that is Jesus Christ who came down in the flesh and who is now glorified. Know it or not, you are an idolitor. I was, when I was a catholic. The catholic church has got you fooled. You will never understand until, you are "Born Again".

Why isn't Jesus good enough for Catholics?*

He is, Kay. This is why we ask others to pray to Him on our behalf, as well. The prayers of the righteous are powerful, and who is more righteous than those who ran the race and won - Mary, the martyrs and those 24 elders up there collecting our prayers. We don't cease being members of Christs' body - the church - when we die. If we did we'd be in hell.
---augusta on 1/3/07

I'm the person who started this blog. I have not been back here in a long time. You can imagine my surprise when I saw all the responses.
There definately has been a wonderful change in me since I pray only to the Father in Jesus name! This is what Jesus said to do. I obey God, rather than man.
So why would I outright defy God and pray to Mary to intercede for Jesus? It doesn't make sence. Get out of the dark and come out into the light. Your life will change. God bless.
---Niel on 1/3/07

Emcee, dead people cannot interceed for us. Why isn't Jesus good enough for Catholics? Why must they turn to the dead for help? Our God is the living God, so why do people seek the dead? Its completely unbiblical.

The Bible says not to pray to angels or saints, this is idol worship. Mary was a sinner like all people, and ONLY Jesus was sinless. Only God in Jesus' Name will answer.
---Leslie on 12/31/06

But you have to admit that "the woman" was EVE, because "her seed" would mean "a man" or the son of man.
In order words, God was saying "your descendant" which Jesus indeed was. God was talking to Eve, but the statement was later true of mary too in a more specific sense. But that doesn't mean we should twist the context of that statement.

Moderator you ask Ruben "Do Catholics consider sex dirty and sinful?" Considering the fact that many roman catholics have a dozen or more children (because they are not allowed to use birth contol) I'd say that either the answer is "NO" or they are all VEEEEERY sinful and dirty. The answer is, of course, that it is not sinful and dirty and Mary led a perfectly normal married life AFTER giving birth to Jesus.

Moderator - Exactly.
---M.A. on 2/17/06

Elder, I believe Ramon could use your help on the, "Is God Just One Person?" blog.
---Ulrika on 2/17/06

Ruben, you are reducing Mary down to a complete idiot.
If Mary wanted to remain a virgin she never would have been getting married. She was a virgin when she was told that she was going to have a child. That is why she asked, "How can this thing be seeing that I am a virgin."
Cond #2-->
---Elder on 2/17/06

Cond #2-->
She was a virgin when Christ was born. She was NOT a virgin before her second child was born. She did not remain a virgin to do so would have resulted in her defrauding her husband. If you think God chose her just because she was a virgin you are mistaken again. She had to be a virgin for the miracle birth but there were other factors also.
---Elder on 2/17/06

Read These Insightful Articles About Christian Marriage

Ruben ,,, "May it be done to me according to thy will." That was Mary's response to the news from God that she was going to have a child, even though she had not "known" a man. It is the first time I have ever heard it suggested that she was saying that to an instruction from the angel that she must never have a normal relationship with her husband, and I cannot read the angel's message in that way.
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/17/06

Elder, Mary was elevated to a special place. Read Luke 1. "Blessed art though amongst women". She was the natural Mother of Christ - His body and Hers were one, His blood and Hers were one. She shared His sufferings as a Mother and no one can deny that.

I'm not asking you to believe what the RCC does but it would be prudent if you show Her some respect for whom she was/is.
---A_Catholic on 2/17/06

Elder:My Fantasy? it's your comprehension; to read what I write & not what you think I write. I did NOT say that because Mary was Sinless Jesus was sinless. That is your saying & you have failed to understand Gen3:V15.-God promised a woman in this verse:- he does not create sin; the woman is sinless for ALL time, she stayed a virgin & had all desires of the flesh removed from her by the power of God. Her choice. Jesus is God, dont get confused,no lineage concepts. The prophecy continues --make your choice.

You're right on there, Elder..and Alan too. Due respect and care any child would have for mom, but nothing special. "The Passion of the Christ" shows Him joking around with her while He was building a table. I can see that happening.
---Ann5758 on 2/16/06

Ann5758 you are correct but that was not "special treatment." That was what any son with respect for his mother and/or family would do in such a case.
Today a man who loves his family might buy life insurance for them but that is not special treatment.
That is just normal everyday things to do.
Cond #2-->
---Elder on 2/16/06

Cond #2-->
The RCC seems to think and teach that Mary was elevated to some special place and was a special person. She was not.
That was Jesus acting out of His human side. If He wanted to show her special consideration He could have given her the "Midas Touch" and everything she touched would turn to gold so she would never need anything.
---Elder on 2/16/06

Elder - (Mary was chosen because she had not known a man, ever at this point in her life) But why would she answer with "How can this be, since I have no relations with man." The angel gave her a FUTURE action and she was betrothed to joesph! It wasn't until the Angel told her how, and she said "May it be done to me according to thy will." She wanted to stay a virgin and God granted her wishes. Thus a virgin always!

Moderator - Do Catholics consider sex dirty and sinful? Is that why Mary couldn't have relations with her husband after the birth of Jesus?

Ann & Elder 2 .
But this part of the story is not needed in the Salvation Story, so it is not in the Bible. His words on the cross seem to show that He was anxious to have someone take care of this woman who was special to Him, as his mother, but they gave her no more status than Mum ... plain ordinary Mum.
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/16/06

Ann & Elder ... the Bible is short, and read the final verse of John's gospel. I am sure Elder that Jesus gave his mother all the respect that a child owes to his mother ... love, and obedience when a child. I am sure He learnt worldly practical things from her, as from any Mum, which is just what she was, and from Joseph
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/16/06

Elder "Alan the main issues ... " Elder, you are making the same point I made. The strange thing is that the RCC has actually said in the Catholic Encyclopaedia that they changed the original scripture when producing their own Bible. Neverthelass, I do not believe the RCC Has satanic purpose in doing this ... they are mistaken.
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/16/06

Elder- quote: "Have you noticed Jesus called her "woman" and gave her no special attention when He was on the Cross nor at any other time in her life." I hope you don't mean that. "Woman" was a term of respect- its equivalent is "my lady". And while He was on the cross, He made sure she was looked after from that day onward. He gave her plenty of attention. She was His mother, and He had the love and respect for her that any child would have for his/her parents.

Emcee before I leave you in your fantasy I must ask you.
If Mary was sinless and this caused Jesus to be sinless wouldn't her other children have been sinless also?
The sin nature passes through the father line.
Mary had an earthly father so she was a sinner.
Mary had sinful flesh, thoughts, actions and desires because of how she was conceived.
Cond #2-->
---Elder on 2/16/06

Cond #2-->
Jesus did not have a sin nature because His Father (God) did not have one. Again Mary was chosen because she had not known a man, ever at this point in her life, and she was from the line of David. If you would get away from your foolish protection of fables and myth you would see this.
But I realize that if you do this you will lose a god you have worshipped for years and that must be a very hard thing to do.
---Elder on 2/16/06

Moderator::In reply to your untrue remark, I think you have the bull by the tail. Mary is NOT a redeemer Christ is, for all time. Why do you insist on spreading Falseness. Mary is the mother of HER God Jesus she interceeds with her God & her son. If you cannot understand that simple truth -then I would advocate the golden Rule -Silence.

Moderator - Again Emcee, please quote me and then answer the question because I never made your above statements.
---Emcee on 2/16/06

Ulrika thank you for your confidence. Alan the main issues of salvation and God's "mechanics" in providing Redemption makes common sense if someone looks at the issues and the Plan of Salvation. The RCC has rewritten Scripture to confuse those who would be willingly confused. One of the marks of a Cult is they have their own book.

He couldn't and didn't create Mary the same way He did Adam and Eve. Trace the lineage of Adam and Eve back to their beginning and see what you have. (Hint: Dirt)
Then trace Mary's linage and see what you end up with.
Then you will see why He couldn't create Mary the same way.
Cond #2-->

What you don't understand is that if God created Mary special for this position then she would not have been in the lineage of David and Jesus could not be the promised Redeemer. If God created her sinless then ROM 3:10 and others would be a lie.

Have you noticed Jesus called her "woman" and gave her no special attention when He was on the Cross nor at any other time in her life. Your infatuation with Mary takes away from the Sacrifice of Jesus. Jesus only received flesh from Mary. Her nature was sinful and she needed a Saviour also. Though she raised Him, Mary had to accept His sacrifice for sin too.

The difficulty Elder is that the RCC's bible actually says it is the woman's heel. The Catholic Encyclopaedia acknowledges that the original source said it was the heel of the seed (Jesus) but that they RCC changed this to refer to the woman's heel to reflect thir tradition that hse is co-redemptrix. Until you get RCs back to the original words, they will be unable to accept what you say.
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/16/06

Elder::Your #3 Impossible for Man But easy for God -Correct & keeping her sinless, equally easy for God. So why would God make her with sin since he is sending his own son by this woman. Unless you have, divine knowledge you are not in a position to make this statement & defile the mother of Our savior. But logic Dictates she was sinless, as she was chosen to be the mother of Her Redeemer, BY God the father. God does not create Sin He had just created A&E without sin why withold it from the woman.

Moderator - If Mary is sinless, why would you need a redeemer in Christ?
---Emcee on 2/15/06

Ulrika It is hard to improve on what you said about Gen 3:15. This is the first promise from God the Father that He would send a Redeemer through a woman. The phrase "bruise his heel" means Satan's attempt to defeat Christ in His Ministry and purpose. Everything from the Temptations to the Death on the Cross. The death was real but not permanent. A bruise on the heel is not deadly.
Cond #2-->
---Elder on 2/15/06

Cond #2-->
The phrase "It shall bruise thy head" is a promise to Satan that he will be wounded to death. God is revealing His plan to destroy Satan. The seed of the woman is Christ but it does not say here that the Woman is Mary. It is just said that the Redeemer will come through the human line and be born of a woman.

This was impossible for man but easy for God.

She carried and gave flesh to that Sacrifice, Jesus. She is just a sinner saved by Grace.

Emcee like so many other things you have posted just because you say it doesn't make it so. There is nothing that God did under a bushel. There is nothing hid from the Believer. God reveals His will to us and we don't have to get it cleared through the Church staff as you do. If you believed as much Truth as you reject we wouldn't be having these conversations.

The Catholics have lots of love towards Mary since she is the Mother of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Don't forget, that she shared a lot with Christ's pains having been present watching what Her Son went through. The RCC bases its belief on the miracle of Cana. You may not agree with it but does not make it wrong neither.

Moderator - Christians have lots of love towards Mary also, but just not as a deity because that position belongs to Jesus Christ alone.
---A_Catholic on 2/14/06

Let me get this straight. Catholics pray to Mary, they bow to her statue, she 'evidently' is omnipresent to hear all of the catholics prayers AND she can read your mind? Sounds like idol worship to me. If scripture wanted us to worship Mary, it would have stated such as it states to praise Jesus! Scripture NEVER states to put Mary up on this pedestal to be worshipped and I truly, pray that the Holy Spirit will convict the catholic's souls so they are not lost forever.
