Catholic Mary is Nothing
By David J. Stewart
Catholicism is of the Devil. There are already billions of Catholics burning in Hell because they followed evil men, i.e., Catholicism, instead of the truth of God's Word. I say this with respect and kindness, for if it were not by the grace of God, I too would be lost. Thank God for the gift of His only begotten Son, Jesus, the Christ, Who paid our sin debt to set us free. Get mad at me if you want, I care enough about you to tell you the truth of God's Word.
Catholics are enamored with the praise, recognition and worship of Jesus' mother, Mary. They not only worship her in her earthly form, but as the predominant figure in Heaven next to Peter and Jesus Himself. May I say, truthfully from the Scriptures, Mary is NOTHING!
Peter is NOT the head of anything, let alone the Church. In Matthew 16:18, the name “Peter” means “petros” (a piece of rock); but Jesus referred to Himself as the “Rock” (which in the Greek is “Petra,” meaning “a mass of rock”). Hence, Peter is a small peddle and Jesus is the mountain. 1st Peter 2:7, “Unto you therefore which believe He is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner.” Catholics don't study their Bibles. They fail to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES as Jesus commanded in John 5:39, and so they are woefully deceived by a false cult of evil men who are leading billions of lost souls into the fires of Hell for eternity.
Look at that poor little child in the above photo worshipping Mary. It's disgusting. Mary is NOTHING! Jesus' earthly mother was not born without sin as the Catholics teach, i.e., their doctrine of Immaculate Conception. Biblically, Mary was a dirty, rotten, vile, sinner—just like you and me, and everyone else. The only sinless Person to ever walk this earth was the Lord Jesus Christ Himself (2nd Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15). Mary was a sinner and needed a Savior just like everyone else. In fact, Mary called Jesus “God my Saviour” in Luke 1:47. Jesus is the precious Savior! Luke 2:11, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” Amen.
The Rosary is evil. It is not a means of praying to God. The Rosary is corrupt religion. In a standard Rosary, “Hail Mary” is mentioned 53-times. That is idolatry. The Lord Jesus Christ is dishonored by Catholics who give their love, affection and praise to an earthly woman, who was a vile sinner and needed to be saved just like anyone else. John 8:49, “...ye do dishonour me.” To honor and praise Mary is no different than honoring Judas or Balaam. Mary was a sinner. Also, Mary did not remain a virgin.
The Immaculate Conception of Mary, the Perpetual Virginity of Mary, and the Assumption of Mary are nowhere taught in God's Word. Leaders within the Catholic Church claim that the Vatican has power from God to create new traditions; BUT the Bible condemns the traditions of men...
"For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men... Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition... Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye." —Mark 7:8,9,13
Catholics make the Word of God of “none effect” through their sinful traditions which worship Mary as a god. Catholics are a deceived bunch, who say they do not worship Mary, while reciting Rosaries to her, praying to her and asking her for divine intervention. In a standard Rosary recital, the worshipper says 53 "Hail Marys"! The Vatican claims that Our Lady of Fatima can give eternal life to those who come to her by way of reciting the Rosary. That is blasphemy!
Oh, listen my friend, you'd better forsake the evil whore of Catholicism and instead seek the truth. Jesus said in John 4:23 that God the Father seeks for people who will worship Him in spirit and truth; not in religious ceremony and falsehood. Catholicism is religion, religion and more religion; but true Christianity is of spirit and truth. Catholics don't care about the truth; they blindly believe whatever their priests tell them. The final authority of the Catholic Church is the Vatican; whereas the Final Authority of the true Church is the Word of God. Damn the Catholic Church!
I mean no unkindness. I love all people, Catholics included. However, I do hate Satanic deceptions and lies that blind men to the truth of God's Word. You cannot worship God in Sacraments (a word not even found in the Bible). God wants to be worshipped in spirit from our heart. John 17:17 tells us that God's Word is truth, which sanctifies us. 1st Peter 1:23 tells us that we are born-again by the Seed of God's holy Word. Yet, Catholics are brainwashed by their Catechisms, manmade traditions and doctrines of devils. I speak only the truth. Religion is a road to Hell and destruction (Matthew 7:21-23).
God forbids bowing to statues in the 2nd of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:4-5). In the photo to the right, a Catholic man is bowing in praise of a statue of Mary. This is a woeful evil against God. Disobedience to the Scriptures is nothing new. Mankind has been disobeying God since the Garden of Eden. The question is: Will you obey the Scriptures? Bowing to statues is a violation of God's Laws. It is the horrible sin of idolatry. Counting beads on a Rosary necklace is false religion. Chanting the same words over and over is called “vain repetition,” and Jesus condemned it (Matthew 6:7). In Matthew 23:9 Jesus forbids calling any religious leader, “Father, Rabbi or Master.” I don't even think the term “reverend” should be used of any man, no matter how honorable he may seem. The word “reverend” only appears once in the Bible in Psalm 111:9 and refers to our holy God alone. Men are corrupt, evil in nature, and prone to disobedience against God. We are just dirt.
You'd better forsake all forms of self-righteousness, and trust solely upon the redeeming Savior. Jesus came to pay a sin debt He did not owe; because we owed a massive debt of sin we could not pay. The price has been paid in full by Jesus' precious blood (1st Peter 1:18-19). But you must receive this gift through faith in Christ. All one must do to be saved is cease from trusting in their self-righteous works; and instead BELIEVE on Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God, for forgiveness of sins. Salvation is simple and easy, as simple as walking through a door, if that Door is Jesus. John 10:9, “I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” It's that simple. If you'll come as a guilty sinner in need of forgiveness, and believe on the Lord Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God, you will be saved (Romans 10:13). It's not what you're doing that gets you to Heaven, it's where you're looking. Look to Jesus!
The Catholic Mary is NOTHING. It is a sin to recognize, pay tribute to, honor, sing about, worship or elevate Jesus' mother as being anything more than a vile, guilty, filthy, dirty, rotten, SINNER! Mary died an earthly death (Romans 6:23), and today is in Heaven, as a sinner saved by God's wondrous grace. Mary is not honored in Heaven above anyone else. Jesus plainly stated in Matthew 11:11 that the greatest human ever born amongst women was John the Baptist (not Mary). Jesus also said he that is LEAST in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than John the Baptist. So Mary is no better than anyone else, neither on earth nor in Heaven. Mary is not to be praised in any special way, for to do so is idolatry.
Catholicism is a cult of Mary worship. They have many excuses why they bow and praise Mary, attempting to justify their sins. But the Word of God plainly teaches that only God is to be worshipped (Isaiah 42:8). In Matthew 12:47-49 we learn that Jesus elevated all of His disciples to the exact SAME LEVEL as His earthly mother and family...
“Then one said unto Him, Behold, Thy mother and Thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with Thee. But He answered and said unto him that told Him, Who is My mother? and who are My brethren? And He stretched forth His hand toward His disciples, and said, Behold My mother and My brethren!”
Jesus DIDN'T pay homage to His mother or family. No, Jesus said that all believers are His mother and family. Clearly, the Lord does NOT want us to place any special recognition upon His earthly mother. To do so is evil. Mary cannot interceded for anyone who prays to her. Praying to the dead is an occult practice called necromancy and is Scriptural forbidden (Deuteronomy 18:11).
In the movie, The Passion of Christ, Mary is filmed throughout the movie being alongside Jesus. It's annoying. It is not surprising, as the movie was made by Mel Gibson, a staunch Catholic. The movie also portrays Jesus as the Antichrist. I have to admit that the beating and crucifixion scenes are accurately gory, brutal and should bring tears to the eyes of any believer who loves the Lord. He suffered for our sins. Praise our Lord! However, the constant focus upon Mary through the movie is disturbing, unscriptural and evil. The entire implication is that Mary has such a close relationship with Jesus that Catholics can pray to her, in an effort to influence the Lord in Heaven. That is bogus Catholic doctrine.
If you pray to Mary, or anyone in Heaven, not only will God ignore you entirely, but you are sinning against God. 1st Timothy 2:5, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” We are to pray in Jesus' name for everything we need and desire, because Jesus is the God-man. As men we pray to the man Christ Jesus; and as God Jesus speaks to God the Father on our behalf. The only way to God the Father is through His Son, Jesus Christ. God does not listen to those who come to Him through Mary, nor Peter, nor saint Anthony, nor any other saint. You MUST come through the precious name of Jesus (John 14:6). Mary is NOTHING! Peter is NOTHING!
Jesus is everything! Amen.
