The adorning crowd looks on in reverenced awe, as they partake in the sin of idolatry and goddess worship. Before we delve into the commencement that took place at the Roman Catholic Church (article is below) I would like to preface this practice of ‘Mary worship’ with some background. For those looking for truth, read on. For those that want to defend the doctrine, please be warned in love and consider the matter as it is taught in the bible. The authority of God’s written word, not the Roman Catholic heresy.
He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him-Proverbs 18:13 (KJV).
The false teachings of the Catholic church –babylonia–is not only based on the doctrines of devils, it is persistent in its methodology of idol worship, pagan rituals and satanic symbolism. The danger is that is inducting its unknowing followers into committing the sin of idolatry and serving false gods. What’s worse is that the teachings are underpinned by the spirit of the antichrist, boasting that “Mary can save sinners.” Heresy! This doctrine should be accursed. Unfortunately, many continue to hold hands with the devil. Defending its practice, rather than seeking the Word of God.
Mary Worship- bowing before a graven image, and giving credence to someone other than our Lord, Jesus Christ is IDOLATRY!
The lack of reliance on the word of God and the focus on the obligation of the Roman doctrine has long been a barrier to both salvation and the actual teachings of Jesus Christ. It is a salvation issue when an apostate church teaches that anyone other than JESUS CHRIST can save!
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me -John 14:6 (KJV).
Notice how that does not include Mother Mary?
“HERESIES are those doctrines and practices which are contrary to the Bible. They are also called “human traditions” or “doctrines of men.” Both Peter and Paul predicted and warned that in the later times “false teachers” would rise within the church and bring in “damnable heresies” and “doctrines of devils” (see 2nd Peter 2:1-3, and 1st Timothy 3:2-5). Jesus rebuked the Pharisees, for they transgressed the commandments of God by keeping such traditions. “in vain,” He said, “they worship me by keeping for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:3,9).
It is grievous to even think that a mortal sinful wo/man would be elevated above Jesus, our Risen King and Savior, who died upon the cross and the only intercessor between man and God (1 Peter 2:24 KJV). However, the Catholic doctrine of devils has not only leveled Jesus with Mary, but elevates the Catholic teachings above those that Jesus gave.
I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins -John 8:24 (KJV).
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ -Galatians 1:10 (KJV).
Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshiping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind…-Colossians 2:18 (KJV).
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; -1 Timothy 2:5 (KJV).
Not only is the the Catholic Church in full “Falling Away” and apostate mode, they are leading their followers to H-E-L-L. Shame on anyone who perpetuates this heresy. Certainly it must be understood we are never to worship anyone other than Jesus. It should also be noted that this false commencement to hail ‘Mother Mary’ is just another example of idolatry. The notion that Mary is greater than any other human on earth, is the workings of the antichrist to fool its followers to worship someone other than Jesus. The idea that you can pray to Mary is robbing the divine comforter given to us by Jesus, the Holy Spirit. We are not to pray to anyone other than our Savior! The practice should be rebuked and accursed.
Anyone who picks up their bible and reads it, will clearly know that this celebration is not only wrong, but Jesus clearly instructed otherwise the traditions of men and idolatry, are sin. A friend recently told me, “If people actually picked up their bibles we would have the biggest dust storm in history.” That is the sad truth.
Here is what Jesus says in Mark 7:6-8:
He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
The biggest lie that the Catholic church teaches is the belief that Mary can save “them” and in order to be saved, they must first receive forgiveness from a priest, Mary, some sort of sacrament, or a saint. Jesus is the only one who saves! And the only one who can forgive and pardon your sins before God. PERIOD!
In the Confessional, the Catholic confesses sins to a priest who then absolves the person and prescribes penance–a necessary means of forgiveness (CCC 980) “by which sins committed after baptism are forgiven,” (The New Saint Joseph Baltimore Catechism, Vol. 1, 1969, p. 141). Sacraments are a means of grace (needed to resist and be forgiven of sins). Catholics can pray to the saints, and especially Mary, to ask for their intercession. In fact, it is Mary who “will deliver our souls from death” (CCC 966), brings gifts of eternal salvation (CCC 969), and is second only to Jesus (Vatican Council II, p. 421).
- False Teaching – Mary has authority in heaven or is the Queen of heaven- and she is sinless. This is the QUEEN OF LIES!
Scriptural Fact : Jesus has authority in heaven and there is no Queen of Heaven, and Mary, was a sinner. The only sinless man was God in the Flesh- JESUS.
- Jesus is the Authority is the Ruler and King of Heaven see Matthew 28:18-20,Ephesians 1:20, Daniel 7:14
- All men are sinners Romans 5:12, Romans 3:23
While it is a customary practice for Catholics to worship and pray to Angels, the Bible is very clear about whom we should worship and pray to. Jesus Christ, our Savior. When we look at scripture, there is no mistaken this fact.
2. False Teaching : Pray to a Saint or Mary, Seek Forgiveness from a priest.
Scriptural Fact – We pray only to Jesus and only he can pardon our sins.
- Intercessor / Mediator is Jesus Christ see: 1 Timothy 2:5-6, Romans 8:34, Hebrews 7:25, 1 John 2:1-2, John 14:16-17.
Priests do not have the authority to “forgive or pardon” sins- only Jesus can pardon our sins see Matthew 9:6, Colossians 1:13-14, 1 John 1:1
3. False Teaching: Worshiping Idols -Saints or Mary.
Scriptural Fact – We worship only Jesus
- Please see: Exodus 34:14, Exodus 20:4-5, Matthew 4:10, Revelation 22:8-9.
While there are many other damnable practices in the Catholic Church, (bowing before a priest in order to take communion, the “kissing of the Rosary,” the deplorable practice of thinking that priests are in “place” of Jesus on earth and placing them in confessional booths, etc) It should be known that this is clearly the teachings of the ANTI-CHRIST!
See an eye-opening interview of the heresies exhorted by Pope Francis.
“This is precisely the mission of the people of God: to spread to all peoples God’s blessing made flesh in Jesus Christ,” Francis said. “And Mary, the first and most perfect disciple of Jesus, the model of the pilgrim Church, is the one who opens the way to the Church’s motherhood and constantly sustains her maternal mission to all mankind.”
“Mary’s tactful maternal witness has accompanied the Church from the beginning,” he continued. “She, the mother of God, is also the mother of the Church, and through the Church, the mother of all men and women, and of every people.”
The pontiff then asserted that Mary is necessary in understanding Christ.
“The Blessed Virgin is the woman of faith who made room for God in her heart and in her plans; she is the believer capable of perceiving in the gift of her Son the coming of that ‘fullness of time’ in which God, by choosing the humble path of human existence, entered personally into the history of salvation,” he said. “That is why Jesus cannot be understood without His mother.”
“May this gentle and loving Mother obtain for us the Lord’s blessing upon the entire human family,” Francis concluded. “On this, the World Day of Peace, we especially implore her intercession that the Lord may grant peace in our day; peace in hearts, peace in families, peace among the nations.”
Other Roman Catholic leaders are likewise presenting messages today in observance of the feast day. Two days ago, the Catholic News Service released a video about purported apparitions of Mary in Rwanda, Africa.
“[W]e want to spread the message that Mary left to the world,” one man states in the video. “Not only Rwanda, but the whole world.”
There are several Marian holidays observed in Roman Catholicism throughout the year. Previously, Christian News Network obtained comment from Matt Slick of Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry (CARM) about an annual celebration entitled “The Feast of the Queenship of Mary.”
“It’s just a manifestation of idolatry,” he said. “The Roman Catholic Church has elevated Mary to a goddess. … They’ve even said that she participated in the atonement.”
“Catholics place undo emphasis on Mary and give her glories reserved only for God,” also noted Robert Thomas of Ex-Catholic Baptist. “Any undo exaltation of Mary is repulsive to a true Bible believing Christian who desires to see the Lord Jesus Christ alone exalted. … The Scriptures clearly teach that Mary was a sinner and therefore needed a Savior, [but under] Pius XII, Catholics are required to believe under the pain of mortal sin that Mary was crowned Queen of Heaven and Queen of the Universe. … [W]here is the Scriptural proof for that?”

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils – 1 Timothy 4:1 (KJV).
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction – 2 Peter 2:1 (KJV).
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry – 2 Timothy 4:3-5 (KJV).
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: -2 Thessalonians 2:9-11 (KJV).
