Catholic images of some female they want you to think is Mary. Most of the time they have her dress as a nun. Wont they be surprised at judgment.
Hey, Mary is supposed to save me!
Sorry. You got tricked by your master, Satanas. You should have believed the bible.
I do want to ask you a question on a serious but respectful note here on something. It is not to argue with you, as I never want to do that, bc like I always say, "For some reason you always place a smile on my face." This is truly to get your thoughts on something.
I know a lot of people think we worship Mary, and I do not want to get into that, but...
Okay, I have pictures of my grandbabies all over my house, and other what-nots-as well. I have many Protestant friends who have statues of angels, pictures of Jesus etc... in their homes.
Now I kiss the pictures of my grandbabies all the time. I mean, I cannot help it, especially when I am dusting them.
The Bible does say, "We are not to make a graven image of any kind. Like one from under the sea, above the sea etc...
So would you consider, me kissing a picture of my grandbabies idol worshipping and also my what-nots? Really just want to know your thoughts on that? Thanks a bunch, dear brother in Christ, God Bless, SR
I may have a Answer. The Answer lies with the next verse of your given one.Delete
Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Notice the Colon on verse 4? It means it has a continuation of explanation. "a punctuation mark (:) used to precede a list of items, a quotation, or an expansion or explanation.". That's why you Catholics must "Read the Bible", you're just blubbering the things that you're so Called Priest talled you. While our Pastors teaches us to bring our own bible so that we can see that He is saying the right thing. Not just listening to him.
Furthermore if you study the Verse 5, it is focused on making an object your god. In which you Catholics do. You ask a Statue for an answered prayer, healings, miracles, even feared them. Those are only few of the things that you do with Idols. But in you're case of Grandchildren you're bot worshipping them, you just miss them because they are your family. But are those statues your family? Nope they are not. You guys use them as "gods" who answers and delivers your prayers.
kissing picture of babies isnt idolatryDelete
