An eye-opener to all my fellow Roman Catholics
Top 20 Evil Acts Roman Catholics Do
1. Idol Worship:
You shall have no other gods before me. 'You shall not make for yourselves an idol, nor any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: you shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me,
2. Mary Worship:
Mary is the Lord's servant, how can she be a goddess. (Luke 1:38)
Mary said, 'Behold, the handmaid of the Lord; be it to me according to your word.' The angel departed from her.
His brothers therefore said to him, 'Depart from here, and go into Judea, that your disciples also may see your works which you do.
While he was yet speaking to the multitudes, behold, his mother and his brothers stood outside, seeking to speak to him. One said to him, 'Behold, your mother and your brothers stand outside, seeking to speak to you.' But he answered him who told him, 'Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?' He stretched forth his hand towards his disciples, and said, 'Behold, my mother and my brothers! For whoever will do the will of my Father who is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother.'
Isn't this the carpenter's son? Isn't his mother called Mary, and his brothers, James, Joses, Simon, and Judas?
His mother and his brothers came, and standing outside, they sent to him, calling him.
After this, he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, his brothers, and his disciples; and there they stayed not many days.
For even his brothers didn't believe in him.
Jesus' brothers finally believed on Jesus sometime when Paul was already apostle. ( I Cor. 9:5; Gal. 1:19)
I Cor. 9:5:
Have we no right to take along a wife who is a believer, even as the rest of the apostles, and the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas?
But of the other apostles I saw no one, except James, the Lord's brother.
She shall be called blessed but not to be worshipped. (Luke 1:48)
For he has looked at the humble state of his handmaid. For behold, from now on, all generations will call me blessed.
3. Angelic Worship:
Let no man rob you of your prize by a voluntary humility and worshipping of the angels, dwelling in the things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
Now I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. When I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. He said to me, 'See you don't do it! I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers, the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.'
I fell down before his feet to worship him. He said to me, 'Look! Don't do it! I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.'
4. Saints Worship:
Peter does not want worship bestowed on him. (Acts 10:25-26)
When it happened that Peter entered, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him. But Peter raised him up, saying, 'Stand up! I myself am also a man.'
5. Confession to priest:
We are to confess our sins directly to God for He can clean us and not to men or a human representative. (I John 1:8-9)
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
6. Holy water:
There's no account in the bible where holy water was used in early christian's meeting/services or celebration.
7. Sign of the cross:
There's no account in the bible where sign of the cross was used in early christian's meeting/services or celebration.
8. They call their spiritual leader as father:
Don't call anyone on earth your father. (Matt. 23:9)
