Mary The Blessed Mother

Why is wrong to pray to Mary the Blessed Mother? I understand about praying to the statue of the virgin mary, but what about her directly?

statues are not necessarily idols that people call gods and worship. And in the Catholic church they are not idols or gods either.
We have the statue of Liberty, Abraham Lincoln etc..we have works of art and photos that remind of those who passed on. So we remember the saints in this way as the Blessed Mother is remembered as well.
The Eternal Father His Son our Lord Jesus are the ones to worship. There is no other above the Name of Jesus! All Catholics know this!

"You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth, you shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I The Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate Me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love Me and keep My Commandments"
---Todd1 on 5/22/08


In Cana, Blessed Mother of the Lord always says " Do whatever He(Jesus)tells you."This has always been her position. She's still the same. The angel of the Lord said 3 times in the Bible to Joseph.."Take the baby and His mother" etc. a fact. Elizabeth said "why would the mother of my Lord should come to me?" Blessed Is Her & the fruit of her womb. The most important woman of all times,chosen by God for His only Son & Her only Son.

"..... And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. .... And whosoever will, ... For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book,
If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book
---Andrea on 9/24/07


Mary, "found favor with God", but that does make her deity. She is called the "blessed mother" but she cannot do anything for you. I believe that is Catholic theology.

You should not pray to a graven image. Exodus 20:4 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:

Lorra:: I firmly believe that many of these new home tutured or self interpreters, that are springing up, comes from lack of special guidance, that is what going to university teaches you. They need a course in Theology taught by ONE SOURCE as we DO
---Emcee on 9/24/07


Andrea: All true, now read the rest of the New Testament. Show me where it said that Jesus changed His mind and that we do not have to follow lawful authority anymore, that the rituals the He set up were only for the first generation of Christians. Show me where Jesus "replaced" His other commandments with those you mentioned - as opposed to clarifying them.

Jesus said a lot, and Paul provided insight, you cannot dismiss the whole of the NT for just the parts you like.
---lorra8574 on 9/24/07


Obedience would come by obeying His commandments. Don't you think? If this was all you ever did - wouldn't God approve of you?

Mat 22:37 Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.

Mat 22:38 This is the first and greatest commandment.

Mat 22:39 And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.

Mat 22:40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
---Andrea on 9/24/07


"... I am totally bewildered that there seems to be more fulfillment in rituals than in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ."---Crystal on 4/24/07

It is called obedience. How can you have a personal relationship with Christ if you refuse to follow Him. Following someone does not mean saying "I believe" and then doing whatever you please - that is what we call "lipservice" - Matthew 15:8.
---lorra8574 on 9/23/07


Just as important as all questions about Catholic lies, is the fact that all who are saved are saints, and dead saints rest and wait for the resurection of the saints, and thus Praying to Mary is Necromancy, and because they claim She is in Heaven by God and Jesus to interceed and recieve prayers, idolatry, false worhip, blasphemy, etc.., ( of the worst kinds !!!!!!!!! )
---mike on 9/22/07




Lorra:Sola Scriptura?

Making void the law of God by traditions?

Breaking the Commandment Sabbath moving it to Sunday?

Removing "Thou Shalt not make (statues)nor bow down and Worship them" from Concordances, Splitting #10 into 9/10 to say "Thou shalt not covet thy nieghbors wife" & "thou shalt not covet anything else"?

These changes Inspired?
"Thou shalt surely die" becomes
"Thous shalt not surely die", very subtle.
---TS on 4/25/07


Lorra,

How convenient! Now that my responses are off the page? I answered you with specific verses & cited the ones before & after to make my point. I should open my heart to the truth? You are spouting untruths according to tradition! You place more emphasis on men's tradition than on the Word. Then, you accuse me of failure to see the truth? The TRUTH is Christ & Him crucified. Jesus IS King of Kings & Lord of Lords! Always has been, always will be!

"Jesus is the Word made Flesh. No one is denying this, but you are belittling most of His accomplishments by focussing so much on Him and not on what He did and how He did it."

I believe it is ALL about HIM, and the focus on what He did and how is to show all the more who He is, His character, to know Him.
---Christina on 4/25/07


Crystal, when I pointed out that Jesus was not the only one described as the King of Kings in the Bible, I was accused of blasphemy by Chipper. Now if speaking a truth from scripture is blasphemy, then what else is there? Some made their own graven image of Jesus in their minds and worship that without any care for who the real Jesus is. When you go Sola Scriptura and abandon all authority, and then strip the scriptures of their due, then there is a problem.
---lorra8574 on 4/24/07


Crystal, I have quoted the scriptures before and you accused me of twisting them and taking them out of context. I challenged you to take my selected passages and put them into their proper context and show their proper meaning. You were not able to do this. Until you can, then how can I know that you have the Holy Spirit guiding you?

So far you are all talk. Seek the Lord and He will give you the words to defend your faith, Luke 21:12-15. Open your mind and heart to His truth.

Lorra,

Was it not Paul who said that we must preach Christ and Him crucified? What greater accomplishment is there in Christ? He rose again on the third day conquering sin and death! How can focusing on Christ take anything away from His accomplishments? HE is to be our focus!! Why do Catholics care more about WHAT than WHO? I am totally bewildered that there seems to be more fulfillment in rituals than in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
---Crystal on 4/24/07


Helen_5378, would I be elevating John the Baptist to a god if I told you that he too was foreshadowed in the OT. He was you know.

Jesus is the Word made Flesh. No one is denying this, but you are belittling most of His accomplishments by focussing so much on Him and not on what He did and how He did it.

Ruben:
Genesis 49:10The SCEPTRE shall not depart from Judah,nor a lawgiver from between his feet,until Shiloh come;and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

Rev 12:5 "She gave birth to a son,a male child,who will rule all the nations with an iron SCEPTRE And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.

Putting emphasis on Mary misses the Covenant promises to Israel.The root and offspring of David will complete *He,who will rule all the nations with an iron SCEPTRE.
---kathr4453 on 4/24/07


Kathr-. Rev 12 is about the Jews and the fulfilling of promises to them. Please don't rob from Israel what belongs to them. It's not about Mary,she was never the mother of the 12 tribes.


Rev 12:5 "She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne." But to say she cannot be Mary at all is insane.

Lorra8574 - The whole of God's Word from Genesis to Revelation is about Jesus Christ and His vicarious death on the Cross for the sin of the world. It is Jesus Christ Who is foreshadowed in the Old Testament. You are elevating Mary to the level of God or higher by saying she was foreshadowed. That belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ only.
---Helen_5378 on 4/23/07


"Everything in the OT was a picture /shadow of Christ"
A large part of the OT is a history of the Jewish people.
---alan_of_UK on 4/23/07


The very first prophecy was declared by God Himself and it regarded Mary meaning, She was a VERY SPECIAL person who had to bear Jesus.

No, the Mother of Christ was NOT an ordinary woman but a special human being honored by God like no other human has or will ever be.
---Caring on 4/23/07


Lorra: The question is, Why is equating Mary to the Ark so important to you? Without it, you cannot exalt Mary to Queen of Heaven, and all the other 2000 names you have given her that belong to Jesus Christ alone, by whom, and to whom and through whom ALL things were made. Yet, your philosophy is only by Catholic Tradition. The WORD of God overrules. I'm not threatened one bit. Should I be? I put my faith in God's Word, not traditions of men.

Kathr4433, The Ark of the Covenant in the OT was NOT God, it was only a vessel made to carry things touched by God. A decorated wooden box, not a deity. Why is equating Mary with this box so upsetting to you? Mary was a human being made by God for the purpose of bringing Jesus into the world. Yet, the very idea that she was foreshadowed in the OT frightens you. Jesus was foreshadowed in many ways, including by the items that were carried in the original Ark of the Covenant.

Ruben:
Joseph's dream in Genesis 38
Joseph is the 12th star..


:9And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold,I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

10And he told it to his father,and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him,What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
---kathr4453 on 4/22/07


Ruben #2:
It came to pass, Joseph being hated by his brothers for this dream sold him into Egypt. The end of the story does indeed say (As Joseph was made 2nd in power to Pharoah)they did bow down.Ruben,Joseph is a type/picture of Jesus being rejected by His own. Still to come, they will look upon Him whom they have pierced. Rev 12 is about the Jews and the fulfilling of promises to them. Please don't rob from Israel what belongs to them. It's not about Mary,she was never the mother of the 12 tribes.
---kathr4453 on 4/22/07


Lorra: Everything in the OT was a picture /shadow of Christ. Everything God asked Moses to make was after the "pattern" of things in Heaven. It's about Jesus Christ. The Ark, in Heaven is Christ, and the Blood of Jesus Christ was laid upon the alter in heaven. The veil has been rent/torn, and we can now boldly come to the throne of Grace and the Mercy seat that was upon the Ark. No one comes to the Father except through the Son. Jesus opened the way. Salvation is in no other.

lorra #2:
Hebrews 8:5
Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

Hebrews 9:23
It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these;but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.(is the Blood of Jesus, not the blood of bulls and goats).
---kathr4453 on 4/21/07


Kathr- Why no mention of Mary in Hebrews, that explains the Ark and the Covenants?


Try the Book of Revelation 11;19-12:1 "Then God's temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was seen the ark of his covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm." great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head."

Hebrews Chapter 9, note especially verse 15. Jesus is the New Testament or New Covenant. John 6:35, Jesus is the bread of life. Note also John 6:32 - The Father sent down the Manna from Heaven and also the Son who is the Bread of Live.

Is the Old Covenant in effect at all? Or has it been replaced? If the Ark of the Covenant in God's Temple in Heaven is the Ark of the Old Covenant then the Mosaic Laws are all still in effect and binding upon all believers.
---lorra8574 on 4/20/07


Fortunately, the Old is revealed in the New and the New was concealed in the Old. What came before foreshadowed what was to be. Mary never appeared before David, because she never carried the Old Covenant in her womb. But the fact that Jesus fulfills the OT and is constantly described in OT metaphors, especially in John and Hebrews, is why Catholics believe that Mary is the Ark of the New Covenant. Not because of her greatness, but His.
---lorra8574 on 4/20/07


Ruben: You said, *No, but Mary is the New Ark of the Covenant*

Ruben, what exactly is the NEW Ark of the Covenant?
We know the veil was Christ's Flesh. When Jesus died on the Cross, and His side was pierced,the veil in Solomon's Temple was torn at the same time, signifying the way into the Holy of Holies was open. Hebrews 10 says, we enter into the Holy of Holies (to God) through the veil,that is to say HIS flesh. Why no mention of Mary in Hebrews, that explains the Ark and the Covenants?
---kathr4453 on 4/20/07


That is correct. It's not about Mary. IT'S ABOUT JESUS. Catholics are spending much time going in the wrong direction, and that road slopes downward. When I look back on the many idols (spiritual and physical), I see very little truth left. The Catholic Church is the spiritual cancer of Christianity, continually eating away the truth of God's only provision. They surely give glory to others that should be only God's. Very sad and displeasing to the gracious God that sent His son to the cross for us.

Crystal-Think about it, the passage says that the woman "cried out being in labor and pain to give birth." The Bible reveals that labor and pain in child birth are part of God's judgment on sinners (Gen. 3:15-16).

Exodus 25:22
And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat,from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony,of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

Exodus 26:33
And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, that thou mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony: and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy.

It's NOT about Mary!
---kathr4453 on 4/20/07


PART II:

Hence, based on their own tradition regarding Mary's "sinlessness," the imagery of the woman presented in Rev 12 CANNOT accomodate Rome's concept of Mary. So in conclusion, it is not only an exegetical impossibility for Rome to assign the identity of the woman here to Mary, it also flies in the face of their own traditional teaching regarding her so-called, "Immaculate Conception."
---Crystal on 4/20/07

The "woman" in Revelations 12 is Israel!

PART I:

The Roman Catholic doctrine that Mary was "immaculately conceived," i.e., conceived without "original sin," actually conflicts with their own interpretation of the woman in Rev 12 being Mary. Think about it, the passage says that the woman "cried out being in labor and pain to give birth." The Bible reveals that labor and pain in child birth are part of God's judgment on sinners (Gen. 3:15-16).

Mary carried the Word of God(LK 2:38)..."

So are you saying that Mary appeared to or came to David?
---Christina on 4/20/07


In Rev 12, This woman is not described as a sun and moon and twelve stars, but is clothed in the sun, stands upon the moon and wears the twelve stars as a royal crown upon her head. During the first century, Christians did not view Isreal as royalty or worthy of God's protection against the devil. The woman is clearly Jewish because she is adorned with symbols of Isreal, but she is more. Each of the other figures respresents a real individual, so does the woman.
---lorra8574 on 4/19/07


emcee, I am not a catholic, I am the very opposite, I am Christian, a real 100% genuine born-again Christian. Scripture tells us to honor Christ the Lord, not Mary; Jesus alone is the Messiah, the single only real Salvation for man, all other ways are false. I know you want to defend what you believe and were taught, but you simply were not taught the truth. I have no motive nor will to say any falsehood to you. So you can continue to "kick against the pricks" or else turn and see the truth.

Revelations 11:19 "And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail." This relates to the Ark of the Covenant, but the wording is new. The Old Covenant was abolished, yet the Ark is seen in the Temple of God, just before Revelations 12 which goes on to describe the woman who is a sign reminiscent of Isaiah 7:14.

Talk about being entrapped to believe the lies of Satan. This is an apt description of the lie that says Mary was somehow "pure and sinless."

---lorra8574 on 4/18/07


Crystal P2: Jesus was able to accomplish what He did because of everything you said and this had NOTHING to do with any issues of purity or impurity in Mary. However, based upon what was written in the OT, it is extremely unlikely that Jesus would have been born of a harlot. Further, given Who Jesus is, it is also unlikely that He would be carried in the womb of one stained with original sin.

Crystal P3: I have already given verses that show that the word "until" does not guarantee a change in circumstances. After all are we free to ignore sound doctine now. Did the Father kick His Son off His throne. By your logic both of these things should have occurred.

What of the so-called brothers? Family members would typically be listed in order from oldest to youngest, making James the oldest in that list. However, James is the son of Alphaeus. Was Joseph sterile or impotent?
---lorra8574 on 4/18/07


Jesus was able to save us because Jesus was GOD! He was born of a virgin, lived a life free of sin, died and shed His innocent blood as an atonement - the only acceptable atonement to God. Mary was not pure. She was a sinner God chose to fulfill His plan and purpose. Jesus birth would be LESS of a miracle had Mary been pure and perfect as you contend. The fact that God used an ordinary woman is what makes this story the "Greatest Story Ever Told."
---Crystal on 4/18/07


Emcee, you said "The mother of our Lord and savior..."

WRONG! Our Lord has no mother. Read the real Word of God.
