The Rosary Is Blasphemy Against God!
By David J. Stewart | June 2005 | Updated December 2015
I love Catholics, just as I do all people. In fact, that's why I've taken the time to make this website, and write all these articles, because I love you in the Lord and want you to be in Heaven with me. The Holy Bible warns repeatedly that the Devil is the father of all liars and murderers (John 8:44); a master con-artist (2nd Corinthians 11:13-15); coming only to steal, kill and destroy you, your family, your church, and everything decent, right and holy (John 10:10). The question is: Are YOU going to be the Devil's next victim???
Kindly, the Catholic Rosary is blasphemous against God, showing Him utter irreverence, by idolizing a sinful human being (Mary) instead of worshipping the sinless Lamb of God, Jesus Christ. Thus, the Rosary is a damnable heresy, which is no where taught in the Word of God. I am saddened that so many people have fallen hook, line and sinker for the devilish teachings of the Roman Catholic religion. I say “damnable teachings” because (as you will learn in this article), Catholicism is a road to the fires and torment of Hell. Catholic dogma is NOT based upon the Bible; but rather, upon the manmade traditions and superstitious fairytales (like Fatima) of wicked men.
The following quote is from www.Catholicity.com, titled “The Fifteen Promises of the Rosary.” I am going to refute these lies with the Bible.
It sounds great, but what is the “special protection” and what are the “great graces.” Talk is cheap, you've got to tell us more than that. And what's with the “my Rosary” deal? If the rosary belongs to Mary, where does God fit into the picture? From all the time I have spent dissecting the Catholic religion, one thing is very clear to me, that is, Roman Catholics are utterly consumed in mind, body and spirit with the “Blessed Virgin Mary,” while Jesus Christ is ignored. I triple-dog-dare-you to watch any Catholic worship service and you'll see Mary exalted to the heavens, but what does the Bible say concerning this heathen practice? The Bible declares...
Listen to any Roman Catholic worship service and all you will hear is Mary, Mary, Mary! The Bible teaches that ONLY the name of Jesus Christ should be exalted, for there is NO salvation in any other name...
There is absolutely nothing in the Bible teaching such foolishness. God never instructs us to recite anything; on the contrary, God condemns such practices...
Catholicism is as heathen as can be! I recently watched a bunch of nuns chanting the rosary on EWTN (the Eternal Word Television Network for Catholics). They just kept chanting...
Ironically, I frequently get e-mails from Catholics adamantly denying that they pray to Mary. What? Then what do you call the above chants? The nuns were reciting over and over the words: “Mary Queen of ____ we pray to thee.” They are indeed praying to Mary, wickedly so! Catholics have been deceived, not knowing what it means to worship. God is a jealous God, and He will not tolerate people idolizing Mary. The entire Catholic religion is based upon the faulty Ass-u-mption that Jesus is partial toward His earthly mother; thus, she controls Him. That's bullcrap theology! MARY IS NOTHING!!!
In Matthew 11:11, Jesus called John The Baptist (NOT MARY) the greatest born among women. Matthew 11:11, “Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.” So where does that leave Mary, the mother of Jesus? Jesus taught that even the least saint in Heaven is greater than John the Baptist, which means Mary ain't crap!
I attended a local Independent Baptist Church down the street, at Christmas time a few years ago (sadly, they are NOT fundamental, which I quickly found out). I absolutely wanted to vomit, when one of their shameful associate pastors got up behind the church pulpit on Sunday morning and praised Mary. He said, “During this Christmas season we honor Mary as the mother of our Savior.” Talk about LUKEWARM!!! The local community is predominantly Roman Catholic and on their way to the Lake of Fire. Does the local Baptist church care? Hardly, they're honoring Mary!!!
God vomits over New-Evangelical churches today, who will say and do whatever it takes to stay in the religious business (and that's all it is to them, but they'd never admit it). This is why they tolerate multiple plans of salvation in the church, allow women staff members to wear pants, use umpteen Bible versions, promote the lucrative Young Earth hoax, and teach the all-hail-the-Jews heresy of Zionism. Literally, Christian believers are leaving the churches to have a closer walk with God these days.
Folks, please do NOT be deceived by the Devil, Roman Catholicism is straight out of the pits of Hell. Jesus Christ is the ONLY Way to Heaven, not the Blessed Virgin Mary. Furthermore, Mary did not remain a virgin (contrary to the perpetual virginity teachings of the Catholic religion). Joseph and Mary conceived numerous boys and girls. Matthew 13:55-56, “Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?”
Yet, in view of the plain Scriptural evidence you just read, the scum-of-the-earth Catholic scholars LIES THROUGH THEIR TEETH, claiming in the Catholic Douay version of the Bible that this wasn't Jesus' biological mother, but a different Mary. What lying devils! Hell is going to be FILLED with Roman and Russian Orthodox Catholics, who substituted the Words of God with the manmade satanic heresies of the Devil. Mark 7:7, “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Catholics are wasting their time and money, worshipping God in vain; yet they get angry when a born-again Christian like me tries to warn them and tell them the honest truth.
Please don't be deceived by the double-talk of Catholics. In one breath they admit that Mary is not the way to Heaven, yet as you will read in promise # 5 below, they do teach that praying the rosary to Mary guarantees Heaven. God does not play Word Games like Catholics do, God said what He meant, and we had better listen to Him or else. Romans 3:4 declares, “... let God be true, but every man a liar...”
What a bunch of LIES! Do you really believe that counting 59 beads and a cross on a Rosary is going to accomplish anything other than wasting your time? Jesus never taught any such nonsense. The Bible never teaches us to count beads or pray a Rosary. In Matthew 6:9-13, Jesus taught us how to pray...
Jesus said, “After this manner therefore pray ye...” Jesus didn't tell us exactly what to pray, but He taught us in what “manner” to pray. I don't see anything about a “hail Mary” in there. God wants us to adore Him, to worship His goodness and perfect name. God wants us to seek the Kingdom of God first (Matthew 6:33), AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS (God's imputed righteousness which is by faith), and God's will in our life. God wants us to be repentant, humble and forgiving of others. God wants us to pray to avoid temptation (to walk in the Holy Spirit Who indwells every believer - Romans 8:9). God wants us to brag on Him and boast about His greatness and power.
If you boil this prayer all down into simplest form, you basically have 2 things:
Also, praying the Rosary can't dispel heresy because it is heresy itself. The Bible teaches that heresy is exposed by shining the light of God's Word upon the darkness (Psalm 119:105). The Bible is a “Lamp” unto our feet, to light the path. God's Holy Spirit is our guide to “guide us into all truth” (John 16:13). If a doctrine doesn't fit within the parameters of the Bible, then it is heresy! The word heresy means “an opinion.” Any opinion that deviates from God's opinion is heresy. If you don't like this, then it is only because you do NOT believe the Holy Bible (i.e., the King James Bible).
Praying the Rosary will do nothing but waste your time and upset God.
I dare you to show me any of the above claims from the Bible. The Bible teaches in John 17:17, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” It is the Word of God that sanctifies us (sets us apart “from” the world and “to” God). Catholicism elevates the Rosary above the Word of God. The Rosary cannot sanctify you. How can you be sanctified by repeating a bunch of vain repetitions? The phrase “Hail Mary” is NOT even mentioned once in the Bible! Not once! Think about it.
This is one of the most blasphemous statements I've read. The Catholic religion teaches that those who trust MARY through the ROSARY will not perish. That's a dirty lie of the Devil. The Bible proclaims...
You can pray a million Rosaries and trust Our Lady of Fatima (i.e., Mary) with all your heart, but you WILL go straight to Hell when you die. God sent His Son into the world to pay the price, the ransom, for our many sins. Jesus Christ has made salvation available to all men, all you need to do is to forsake your false religion, and place 100% of your faith in Christ alone, not the Great Whore of Catholicism. If you don't forsake your DEAD WORKS in false religion, then you'll never rest in Jesus Christ to be saved. That's why you must forsake your false religious beliefs.
By the way, Mary (Jesus' earthly mother) is not The Great Whore, Mary of the Roman Catholic church is a whore. Roman Catholicism has created a MONSTER out of Mary that is all a big lie. False doctrines such as “the assumption of Mary,” the “Immaculate Conception of Mary,” and Mary's “Perpetual Virginity” are fictitious lies of the Devil nowhere found in the Bible. “The Mother Of Harlot” (Revelation 17:5) according to Revelation 17:18 is the city of Jerusalem, that is, the Illuminati (the Luciferians behind the demonic New World Order). The Illuminati created the modern-day state of Israel in 1948, as a pretext to achieve World War III between the Arabs and the Jews.
Wow! Talk about a flame-broiled whopper! This is extreme Catholic blasphemy against a Holy God. No sinner will ever be converted by reciting the rosary! The ONLY hope of salvation is through Jesus Christ ALONE...
"Never be overwhelmed with misfortune"? Again, it sounds great but it's simply NOT true, Catholics suffer from misfortune just like all other human beings do. We live in a fallen world and suffering is simply a part of this temporal life, Christian or not. Being a Christian doesn't necessarily make life any easier, but it does make life better because you have the Lord Jesus Christ by your side all the time. At what point did Mary become a superstar? It surely didn't happen in the Bible.
Roman Catholics and even Lutherans disgracefully elevate Mary to extreme levels NOT taught anywhere in the Scriptures. Mary was a sinful, but virtuous, human being who was graciously chosen by God to be used as a vessel to bring Christ into the world. Mary has no special position or recognition with God. Mary is NOT the "mother of God," God has no mother.
Mary was the mother of the man Jesus Christ, but the incarnate Godhead has no mother. Jesus Christ had NO earthly father, but was conceived by a miracle of the Holy Spirit of God. Mary was a good and respectable woman, but she was still a hell-deserving sinner, just like any other virtuous lady who is a child of God.
Can't you see that the Vatican wrote this garbage? Fatima is a big Hoax! The Catholic religion is raking in billions upon billions of dollars from foolish people who are following the Unbiblical traditions of men. So now Mary is telling you that you need the sacraments if you really mean business, and if you don't mean business then you have no guarantee of heaven.
This is how the Catholic religion subtly mandates the
sacraments. Do you see the gimmick in all of this? Every
Catholic that I speak with says that the sacraments are not necessary for
salvation, yet the black and white teachings of
Catholicism contradict them. It's so pathetic.
I dare you to show me this from the Bible. By the way, I've never heard a Catholic priest yet encourage his listeners to study the Bible for themselves. The Bible is the BIGGEST ENEMY of the Roman Catholic Church.
There is NO such teaching as purgatory in the Bible. The foolish rich man in Luke 16 died without Christ and went straight to hell to suffer in torment. Jesus never said it was a parable (as He always did when He told a parable). Literal names were used (Lazarus, Abraham). It wasn't a "certain man" in a "certain place," the details were specific. We must accept the account as real. There is no teaching in the Bible of a temporal place of punishment.
The above three promises of Our Lady of Fatima (Mary) are nonsense not found in the Bible. Jesus told us to pray in His name to the Father, no mention is ever made of Mary. Where in the world did the Catholic religion ever come up with this stuff from?, it certainly wasn't from the Bible. Are the manmade doctrines of the early Catholic Fathers to be accepted as superior to the Word of God? The Vatican believes so.
It's sickening that so many millions of people are starving to death around the world while the Vatican is decked out in the finest of precious ornaments, decoration, and priestly garb. While the priests are drinking from cups made of pure gold, children in many nations are drinking muddy water from rivers where animals and people defecate. “Promise” # 12 above says that Mary will “aid in all their necessities.” I wonder how many little children who are starving have been fed by Catholicism's Mary. It's obvious to any sensible person Catholicism takes in much more money than it gives out. Our Lady of Fatima is a liar!
Again, there is no Scriptural support for the above lies. Devotion to the rosary is a sign of spiritual blindness and misguided faith, nothing else. Those who recite the rosary are worshipping God in vain, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men...
I hope I have helped you a bit, to open your eyes to the lies of Roman Catholicism. I surely mean no harm to anyone; on the contrary, I took the time to write this article to WARN people that the Catholic religion is all a bunch of lies, based upon the traditions of men, and NOT upon the inspired and preserved Word of God.
If you want to go to heaven the Bible way, then ye must be born again!
The Following heretical information is found at www.Catholic.org:
I have included the following information to help you understand the Rosary if you aren't sure how it works. I think the more you understand the Rosary, the easier it is to expose it using the Bible. Unbelievably, during one Rosary prayer (a chaplet), a Catholic will pray 53 “Hail Marys”! (as seen below). Each “Hail Mary” chant (it's not a genuine prayer) is 42 words long (42 x 53 = 2,226 words just praising Mary). The devout Catholic who prays the Rosary every day will praise Mary with 812,490 words in a year's time. That is idolatry! Although some Catholics might contend that half of the Hail Mary chant is a Bible verse, it surely has been taken WAY OUT OF CONTEXT!!!
Jesus NEVER taught us to
recognize Mary in any way. God NEVER asked us to recognize Mary in any
way. Mary didn't even exist in the Old Testament, but the Babylonian
false god, the “Queen of Heaven,” existed (Jeremiah
7:18;44:17-19,25). Catholics even refer to Mary as the “Queen Of
The Unholy Rosary
The following is heresy, but here's how Catholics chant the Rosary . . .
“Step-By-Step” Instructions for Praying The Rosary:
Various Rosary Prayers in approximate order as prayed in the Rosary
THE APOSTLE'S CREED: I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried, He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
FATHER: Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom
come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our
daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who
trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from
THE HAIL MARY: Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
DECADE PRAYER - (prayer for priests): God, our Father, please
send us holy priests, all for the sacred and Eucharistic heart of Jesus,
all for the sorrowful and immaculate heart of Mary, in union with saint
V - Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God
“Let this prayer be echoed all over the world.” —Mary
Fatima Prayer: My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love You. I
beg pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope,

The Fifteen Promises of Mary to Christians Who Recite the Rosary:
Why the Daily Rosary?
MEMORARE: Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary that never was it known that anyone who fled to Your protection, implored Your help, or sought Your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother. To You we come; before You we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in Your mercy, hear and answer us. Amen.

Mary is NOT a mediator between men and God as the Catholics have made her to be. The Bible clearly teaches that there is ONLY One Mediator between God and man, the Lord Jesus Christ...
* * * * * * *
It is sinful for us to ask Mary to pray for us when the Bible CLEARLY teaches that Jesus Christ is the ONLY Mediator between God and man (1st Timothy 2:5). It surely wouldn't be sinful to speak to a loved one in heaven, but they cannot speak to us or make intercession to God for us. When we want something from God, we should go to the Lord Jesus Christ and Him Alone.
Where did this extreme adoration of a sinner like Mary begin? It did NOT begin in the Bible or the early church. I'll tell you where it began, in ancient pagan Babylon!
The whole basis of the damnable Catholic teaching on asking Mary to pray for us is that she is very dear and precious to God. No one has special privileges with God. Catholics believe that Jesus is a mama's boy, wrapped around Mary's little finger. What Mary wants, Mary gets! I was disgusted recently while studying the Lutheran faith. Lutherans and Catholics both believe that God could not come to the earth incarnate without obtaining Mary's permission first. Talk about blasphemy! I write these articles for a good reason, because the Catholic and Lutheran religions are both false religions leading to hell-fire and damnation!
Isn't it interesting that the “Blessed Virgin” of Catholicism is also called the “ Queen of Heaven” by the Catholic Church itself? Jesus said, “Ye worship ye know not what..." (John 4:22a). Catholics have no idea what or who they are worshipping, they claim to worship “God,” while idolizing Mary in every way possible. Mary is praised with over 2,226 words in every Rosary chant; EVERY ROSARY!!! It is total blasphemy against God Almighty! God clearly said in Isaiah 42:8 that He would NOT share His glory with another...
Even in the commonly referred to “Lord's Prayer” (which is really the “disciples prayer”), Jesus taught us to recognize God, and God alone...
Don't be deceived friend, if it's wrong to worship the angels, then it is also wrong to worship a human being like Mary...
The Roman Catholic religion is a conglomerate of manmade traditions, hoaxes, false religions, and even many Christian teachings, all MINGLED into one; but it certainly is NOT Christian. The Devil is a master counterfeiter (2nd Corinthians 11:13-15). Satan always disguises his deceits and lies with elements of truth to deceive the masses. Infamous satanist, Aleister Crowley, taught that the best means of becoming demon-possessed was through ACTING. Yes, as in Hollywood actors!!! That explains a lot about Hollywood.
The Devil and his sinister ministers are ACTORS, pretending to be the good guys. The Pope is a devil in the flesh, the vicar of Hell, leading one billion religious followers into the Lake of Fire. Catholic priests are spiritual frauds, all of them! It is gross theological negligence for any Lutheran minister Catholic priest to claim the power to absolve (forgive) someone's sins. They can't even absolve their own sins. No doubt most of them are sincere, having been duped by the Devil. Religion wants to fit us with glasses, but the Lord wants to open our eyes. Satan uses religion, the bogus lies of Evolution, humanism, occultism, morality and philosophy, to blind people to the glorious light of the Gospel (2nd Corinthians 4:3-4).
I pray that you won't be one of Satan's victims by adhering to the unbiblical heresies of Roman Catholicism. I did not write this article to be unkind, God knows. I have no hatred for any human being on this earth, God knows. Life is too short to live with a burden of hatred. However, I do hate evil, which I am commanded to do as a Christian. Psalms 97:10, “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.”
May God bless you and open your eyes to the knowledge of the truth...
