Mary is the safest, easiest, shortest and most perfect way of approaching Jesus!
I found I was not the only one concerned. There were 88 comments. Here are some of them, but the first one is my favorite:
Mary is dead .....Jesus is ALIVE!!
The only way we can go to the Father is through Jesus Christ. Not Mary...
JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY YOU DON'T NEED TO GO TO MARY TO GET TO JESUS....JESUS PAVED THE WAY THROUGH THE CROSS SO THAT YOU MAY GO TO HIM ON YOUR OWN.
When Jesus died on the cross- he defeated death- he’ll and the grave. And the curtain was torn from top to bottom. Giving us access to the throne to God to the Holy of holies. No more animal sacrifices or having to go to a priest. He says to come boldly to the throne of grace. Praise Jesus for it! :)
This is not biblically accurate at all!
I Timothy 2:5
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
Even Mary has to come to the Father through Jesus, she had to be born again also, she was not sinless. She was favored, chosen and definitely a virgin whom God chose to carry the Son of God, but she was not sinless.
Jesus is the way. When Jesus died on the cross, the curtain in the temple was torn in two, symbolizing that ANY one can approach the throne of God freely. There is no one in between. God tells us to boldly come to the throne of grace.
When Jesus gave up His Spirit, the veil in the temple was torn in half. Jesus paid the price for all of our sins, now we can come boldly to the throne of God. Jesus is the direct way and only way to reconcile with our creator. Mary was a vessel used of the Lord to bring forth His wonderful plan of salvation, but she was a human just like all of us. She found favor from the Lord, she was not sinless. Jesus said, “no one comes to the Father but through Me.” We can go directly to Him in prayer.
So thankful for these comments...totally agree :) Jesus is the ONLY mediator! Mary was His mother not mediator...her purpose was served while on this earth and she is an example for us to learn from but not for us to pray to, to reach our Heavenly Father. Hallelujah for Jesus :)
I was a Catholic for MANY years UNTIL I saw the TRUTH! You can ONLY go to our Father by the way of a RELATIONSHIP with Jesus, NOT religion. He is the ONLY one to save, not a regular person like Jesus or the Saints. Don’t take my word, look in God’s Word, the Bible, it’s in there. I will be praying for you to know the TRUTH, not religion. It’s the RELATIONSHIP that’s important.
This is unbiblical. Roman Catholicism is rooted in paganism. Please see my blog post on this subject where I present this using only scripture for support. www.simplyseekingtruth.com/... :)
It is so wonderful to see people on fire about Truth. I said in my “Bible Study: Titus 1” Blog “Catholics was satan first foothold in God’s Church.” This is an Except from the “Heart Of The Matter” Segment of “The Trilogy:”
When I read the following Scriptures in my daily Bible reading I thought that must be where Catholics get that from:
“When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.” (John 19:26-27)
Looking into what I thought I found I was correct that Catholics do pray to Jesus’ Mother Mary. I looked up “How To Pray The Rosary” on the Internet. There it stated during the rosary people say, “Our Father” once three times and say “Glory be to the Father” twice.
In between those two people say, “Hail Mary.” The first time people say it three times and the second time ten times. Combined people are praying more to Mary than they are to the Father. After the rosary people even say, “Hail Holy Queen.”
Those Scriptures are not about praying to Jesus’ Mother. “Behold thy mother” was Jesus saying, “My mother is here.” Jesus did not want His mother to see what He was about to go through. He was telling them to take her away. “And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home” means he understood and did what Jesus told him to do.
IT IS OUR FATHER THAT ANSWERS PRAYER.
One of the comments was talking about the Catholics’ Bible. By the comment it sound like it is different from the King James Bible. I said in my “Bible Study: I Corinthians 15” Blog Posted 11-8-2014 to the Mormons “If they do not denounce the Book of Mormon it will bring God’s Judgment.” Now I am saying the same thing to Catholics about their Bible:
“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (Revelation 22:18-19)
I said in my “Bible Study: Colossians 1” Blog Posted 12-9-2014 “I had three things to do for God, which was write my books, “The Re-Birth Of Christianity” and the warnings to the world.” This is the third warning for Catholics. God always makes sure His Children are warned before their destruction!
My daily Bible reading wanted to be part of this party:
“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death. We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.” (I John 5:11-21)
“If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death” means God expects His Children to correct error, which means people had a responsibility to respond to the Pin. Not knowing something is not a sin. Once people find out the Truth and continue as they were anyway “is a sin unto death.” The Catholic Bible and the Book of Mormon or any other books like these God considers them idols. It is so very important, “Little children, keep yourselves from idols.”
My daily Bible reading today wanted to be part of this party too:
“I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father. And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” (II John 1:4-11)
IT MAKES GOD PROUD WHEN HIS CHILDREN STAND ON TRUTH!
