A Picture Says It All

by David J. Stewart

Matthew 15:8, “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.”

       Look at the photo to the right of Pope John Paul II, and notice the tiny Jesus (you might need a magnifying glass). All I ever hear from the Catholic Church is how great the Pope is, the “holy father.” The Bible clearly warns us in Matthew 23:9 to call no earthly man our spiritual “father.”

Only God is to be reverenced. The Catholics not only call the Pope “father,” but literally idolize the man. The Pope is the vicar of Hell, not Heaven.

The picture to the right speaks 1,000 words. The Catholic religion idolizes the Pope. Look how the Pope is shown as big and mighty; but Jesus is portrayed as weak and helpless in the hands of the Pope.

“But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.” —Matthew 23:5-9

The Catholic Church with it's gold-plated cups, marble floors, extravagant buildings, and billions of dollars certainly fits the description of the Scriptures we just read.

The picture to the left says it all, Jesus is barely visible... just as in the entire Catholic religion. Mary is praised and mentioned hundreds of times more than the name of Jesus Christ ever is in the Catholic religion. Catholicism is Mary worship! In a standard Rosary prayer, a Catholic will praise Mary 53 times (hail Mary's). 

The Bible declares that at the name of Jesus Christ should every knee bow... NOT at the name of Mary or the Pope.

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.” —Philippians 2:10





“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.” —Philippians 2:10

Don't tell me that Catholicism doesn't worship Mary!!! The above photo says it all. Pope John Paul II worshipped Our Lady of Fatima (Mary) and not the Lord Jesus Christ. Again below...

The average Catholic is brainwashed with Catechism training and knows little about the Bible. The Bible is clear that we are to bow at the name of Jesus (and NO other).

"That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth" -Philippians 2:10

What part of Philippians 2:10 don't the Catholics understand?  Please notice that the word "worship" is not mentioned in Philippians 2:10. We are not even supposed to "bow" to anyone other than Jesus Christ. The Pope is obviously BOWING to a graven image in the above photos taken of him. Where does the Word of God ever direct us to bow to statues (idolatry) and then claim that we don't worship them? Is this reasonable? Of course it's not. The Bible NEVER makes an issue of Mary. No recognition whatsoever is given to Mary. Yet the Catholics have created a entire religion that centers around the glory and magnificence of Mary. 

Some Catholics have even gone as far as to make Mary a Co-redeemer with Christ. Notice Mary's nail-scarred hands. This is satanic blasphemy against the Lord Jesus Christ. 1st Timothy 2:5 teaches that there is ONLY one Mediator between God and men, that is, the man Christ Jesus! The very notion of Jesus' biological mother being a co-redeemer is insane...

Again, please notice the scars in Mary's hands in the above creepy photo. Catholicism is of the Devil. There is absolutely nothing in the entire Bible which even remotely hints that Mary was anything more than just a humble godly woman used for God's glory. Sadly, over 1,000,000,000 people around the world are adherents to the demonic cult of Roman Catholicism. Maryiolatry is idolatry! Catholics pervert, twist and wrestle the Scriptures to their own destruction. 2nd Peter 3:16, “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest [twist], as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.”

The Bible says that MANY people corrupt the Word of God. 2nd Corinthians 2:17, “For we are not as MANY, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.” Today, just as back then 2,000 years ago, there are MANY people (Christ-rejecters) who corrupt the Words of God. And many of them falsely profess to be Christians (they're called Modernists). They have religion, but they know not God. Many people falsely think they're saved because they prayed a prayer, asked Jesus into their heart or surrendered all to Jesus Christ; but they've never been truly born again by the gospel (the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ). If you acknowledge your guilty condition as a sinner and receive what Christ died for you as payment for your sins, then you are saved my friend. Christ died, that's history; Christ died for me, that's salvation.

I plead with you to consider your ways if you are a Catholic. Salvation is NOT found in a religion; but rather, in a Person—The Lord Jesus Christ. Eternal life is a free gift from God (Romans 5:15; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9), paid for by Jesus' literal, precious, blood (1st Peter 1:18-19; Hebrews 9:12,22-24; Revelation 1:5). Salvation is receiving, not giving (John 1:12). It's not what you're doing that gets you to Heaven; it's where you're looking (Isaiah 45:22). Look to Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God!

In one respect, there are only 2 religions in the world: DO and DONE. Either you believe that you must DO something to merit Heaven; or else you believe what the Bible teaches, i.e., that redemption is DONE, completed in Christ Jesus. It's all been done my friend. Salvation has been paid for! All you need to do is receive Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God. That is not a self-righteous work; but rather, resting upon the finished work of Christ. John 6:29, “Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”

John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
