Lol,

You are correct again!!! But God hates the worship of other gods!!! God strictly prohibits the worship of graven images:

"You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image-any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; You shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me." (Ex. 20:3-5, Ibid.)

Hence, those who include in their worship the bowing down or kneeling in front of idols or images are committing a grave sin before God. There is no doubt that the Lord God strictly prohibits idol worship.

Do Roman Catholics worship saints and their relics, images,etc.??? A BIG YES:

"13. Is the worship of saints confined to their person?

"No, it extends also to their relics and images.

"14. What do we call relics?

"We call relics: 1. The remains of the body of a saint who has been canonized or beatified by the Church; 2. The objects which have belonged to the saints, or which have touched their bodies: such as their linen, coffins, etc."

In Pilipino:

"13. Ang pagsamba ba sa mga santo ay ukol lamang sa kanilang katauhan?

"Hindi, sumasaklaw din ito sa kanilang mga relikya at mga larawan.

"14. Ano ang tinatawag nating mga relikya?

"Tinatawag nating mga relikya: 1. Ang mga labi ng katawan ng isang santo na pinapaging-banal, kinanonisa o inihanda sa pagiging banal ng Iglesia; 2. Ang mga bagay na naging pag-aari ng mga santo, o yaong mga nadaiti sa kanilang mga katawan: tulad ng kanilang kasuotan, mga ataol, at iba pa."

What's your choice?

To believe that the head of the true Church (a Roman Catholic claim) could just resign at will...

Too tired to go on, Pope Benedict resigns - CNN.com

Reference: http://www.cnn.com/2013/02/11/world/europe/po... day ago ... Pope Benedict XVI said Monday he is resigning, becoming the first leader of the
Catholic church to resign in nearly 600 years.

...or to stand by what our Lord Jesus Christ did for His true Church of Christ?

"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her." (Eph. 5:25, NIV)

Note:

The Roman Catholic Church has announced lately that the Roman Pontiff known as Pope Benedict will resign by February 28 of this year!!! Catholic faithfuls believe that he is the head of the Vatican Church:

"Vicar of Christ:the Pope as visible head of the Church, acting in place of Christ..."

Reference:[Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines. Catechism for Filipino Catholics, p.676]

Note:

The action of the Vatican Pope is diametrically opposed to that of the head of the true Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo), our Lord Jesus Christ!!! For even at the point of death, Christ followed not His will but the will of the Father!!! He gave His life for the Church and purchased Her with His own blood:

"Take heed therefore to yourselves and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you overseers, to feed the church of Christ which he has purchased with his blood." [Acts 20: 28, Lamsa Translation]

...to believe what the Roman Catholic Church teaches that a priest is another God on earth...

"St. Clement, then. had reason to say that the priest is, as it were, a God on earth."

Reference: De Liguori. Dignity and Duties of the Priest, p.36)

...or to believe what the Prophets of God say that claiming to be God on earth is an exaltation or usurpation of God's function just like what Satan or Lucifer did...

"How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

"For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

"I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.

"Yet thou shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit." (Isaiah 14:12-15)

Note:
The Prophet Isaiah spoke of an individual who tried to usurp the prerogatives of God!!! We know that this Lucifer became Satan, the enemy of God, the head of devils who upholds the teachings, "forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth." (Cf. I Tim. 4:3)

Incidentally, these same teachings are given to the Catholic priests who are called "fathers" and which are usurped or exalted titles!!! They are forbidden to marry by the pope. All Catholics are also comanded by the pope to abstain from meats during certain days of the year in the Lenten Season.

The title "father", in the meanings reserved for God alone, should not be used for any man. Other meanings such as procreator, ancestor, reverence due to age or position, inventor, author, contriver, source, etc. are not included in Christ's prohibition.

Newsflash!!! Roman Catholic Church Lost A Priest To The Iglesia Ni Cristo

He did his inquiries about the true Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo) in secret!!! Even the one who invited him to the chapel never knew that he is a Roman Catholic priest!!! The new Iglesia ni Cristo convert only revealed his Roman Catholic vocation during baptism!!! The matter is damning to the Vatican Church which at present is undergoing the pain of the so-called "Great Religious Recession"!!!

He was doing his attendance for Bible studies and worship services in secret because he was a Catholic priest!!! An Iglesia ni Cristo minister noticed him as always writing down the verses being mentioned in the lessons and he asked questions as well!!! And he got all the answers from the true preachers of God!!! Had the priest made it open his regular attendance to the Bible studies and worship services, he could had been subjected to the onslaught of the standard gossipmogerings of his superiors!!! But he did it right for even during worship services, he has to attend from one Iglesia ni Cristo congregation to another so as not to give himself away!!!

Watch INCTV and see him through this media!!! Watch him making damning revelations about Roman Catholic worship of saints and graven images!!! You have nothing to lose but the falsities of the spurious Roman Catholic Church!!!

All Roman Catholics, Atheists, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Bereans, Mormons, Seventh-day Adventists, Evangelicals, Charismatics, Baptists, members of the American cults, skeptics, and agnostics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

Kika,
Here's the story of the true insane whom you call Holy Father:

What One Infallible Pope, Under The Spell Of A Very Vengeful And Very Fallible Woman, Did To Another Infallible But Dead Pope

"THE BIG EYE-OPENER for her had been in March 897. Agiltruda, the queen mother of Spoleto, took her by the hand to the Lateran Palace. They stood outside in the bright sunshine with a crowd of Romans. Inside, the reigning pope, Stephen VI (nicknamed 'the Trembler' by his contemporaries because of his nervous disease), surrounded by his cardinals and bishops, conducted a trial. Agiltruda, a Lombard, with her luxuriant blond hair, blue eyes, impressive stature, and imperious voice, wanted everyone, inclding the child Marozia, to witness the degradation of her most foul enemy, a dead pope, A Corsican, Formosus by name. Pope Formosus had deprived Agiltruda's son of his due honor by crowning instead a hated German, Arnulf, as Holy Roman emperor in February 896.

"Agiltruda had led an army, seized Rome, and installed herself in Hadrian's Mausoleum. But Emperor Arnulf had sent packing home to Spoleto, breathing vengeance and hate. Pope Formosus had then set out at the head of his own army to capture Agiltruda's beloved Spoleto. But he died of a stroke (or perhaps Agiltruda's poison) on April 4, 896, and was buried in Rome as befitted a pope. The next pope, Boniface VI, was put on the throne by armed Roman citizens. Within fifteen days Agiltruda made sure Boniface was stone dead (after all, before becoming pope, he had been twice defrocked for unseemly behavior). She then put her own creature on the throne as Pope Stephen VII. Everyone, including Agiltruda, knew that Stephen was insane and subject to violent paroxysms of black rage. He was therefore perfect for Agiltruda's scheme.

"The venom and malice of that scheme was monumental. Formosus had been dead and buried for over eleven months. On Agiltruda's suggestion, Pope Stephen had the rotting corpse dug up, brought to the Lateran Palace, clothed in pontifical vestments, placed sitting on a papal throne, and then tried for capital crimes by Stephen and his cardinal and bishops. This was the famous Corpse Synod. Agiltruda had looked forward to it for a long time. This was why she came to the Lateran Palace with Marozia. This was why she was smiling and gay.

"Inside the synod, all went according to plan. Pope Stephen himself and a papal accuser cross-examined the rotting corpse (a trembling eighteen year-old deacon stood beside the corpse and answered for the voiceless Formosus). The conviction came when Pope Stephen, livid with fury, shouted:'Why did you usurp the See of the Apostles?' And the young deacon answered for the dead Formosus:'Because I was evil.' At that crucial confession, Cardinals Sergius, Benedict, Paschalis, Leo John, and the others rushed on the corpse, ripped the pontifical vestments from it, tore off the first three fingers of the right hand (Formosus, like every pope, gave the papal blessing with those three fingers), and then dragged the corpse from the hall.

"Marozia was there as the cardinals and clergy dragged the corpse out of the palace and along the streets. The shouts of the crowd, the smell of the putrefying flesh, the stones and the mud she and the others threw at the corpse did not let up at all. And then there was the dull splash as they threw the remains of Formosus into the River Tiber. Pope Stephen then sent the three torn fingers to Agiltruda, by the hand of Cardinal Sergius. This was Agiltruda's request. As the cardinal gave her these grisly trophies, he noticed the child by her side. Their eyes met. It was the first meeting between the two, but far from the last. She was then six, he thirty-six."

Tita Luslos,

Aside from the emperors of the Roman Empire, who else persecuted, caused sufferings for, and killed the early Christians? A historical book says:

"Leo l (A.D. 440-461),... He proclaimed himself Lord of the Whole Church; advocated Exclusive Universal Papacy; said that Resistance to his authority was a Sure Way to Hell; advocated Death Penalty for heresy."

Pope Leo l proclaimed himself as lord of the whole Church. He advocated exclusive papacy. He said that resistance to his authority was a sure way to hell.. He decided that the punishment for heresy would be death.

What did the popes of the Catholic Church use as an instrument to kill heretics or those who objected to thier doctrines? On page 777, this is declared:

"Innocent lll (1198-1216). Most powerful of all the Popes .... Ordered the Extermination of Heretics, Instituted the Inquisition.

"The Inquisition called the 'Holy Office,' was instituted by Pope Innocent lll, and perfected under the second following Pope, Gregory lX. It was the Church Court for Detection and Punishment of Heretics. Under it everyone was required to inform against heretics. Anyone suspected is liable to torture, without knowing the name of his accuser. The proceedings were secret. The Inquisitor pronounced sentence, and the victim was turned over to Civil Authorities to be imprisoned for life, or to be burned.

"Later on the Inquisition was the main agency in the Papacy's effort to crush the Reformation. It is stated that in the 30 years between 1540 and 1570 no fewer than 900,000 Protestants were put to death.

"The Inquisition was the Most Infamous and Devilish Thing in Human History. It was devised by Popes, and used by them for 500 years, to maintain their power."

Reference: Halley's Bible Handbook, pp. 770, 777.

The resignation of Mr. Benedict XVI as "VICARIVS FILII DEI" (Vicar of the Son of God), and, which title is equal to the dreaded number 666 in the book of Revelation is a negative portent of things to come in the Vatican Church!!! And the joining of a Roman Catholic priest to the "other sheep" of Christ, which is the Iglesia ni Cristo, constitute the continuing support of the Almighty God and the fulfillment of His promises to the Kingdom of Christ on earth in these last days!!!

The success of the true Church of Christ [Iglesia Ni Cristo] is but the fulfillment of God's promises to His messenger and his mission!!! God Himself declared that the Iglesia Ni Cristo would be His handiwork which no one can restrain!!! The prophet Isaiah recorded this prophecy, thus:

"You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth and called from the farthest regions, and said to You,'You are My servant, I have chosen you and have not cast you away;

Fear not for I am with You; be not dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand'." [Is. 41:9-10, NKJV]

God promised to to help and strengthen His messenger in these last days!!! The true Church of Christ draws its strength from this promise which God fulfilled in the messenger and the work he started, the Iglesia Ni Cristo!!!

As more and more Roman Catholic priests and nuns are joining the true Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo) as well as the conversions of faithfuls from the two major religions into the phenomenal and dynamic force in these last days, the authentications of both Roman Catholic and Protestant authorities would always come to mind!!!

A Roman Catholic priest says:

"5. Did Jesus Christ establish a Church? Yes, from all history, both secular and profane, as well as from the Bible considered as a human document, we learn that Jesus Christ established a Church, which from the earliest times has been called after Him the Christian Church or the Church of Christ."

"This Church, founded and organized by Christ and preached by the apostles is the Church of Christ....It is the only true Church, and the one which God orders all men to join."

"....the Church of Christ today must be in nature, in power, in teaching, what it was when it served men through the twelve apostles. It is to this Church that all are obliged to belong in order to be saved. Those people who, though doubtful, deliberately refuse to join it, cannot be saved."

A Protestant author says:

"...Christ predicted the founding of a new congregation or church, a Divine institution that should continue His work on earth. Matt. 16:18. This is the Church of Christ..."

A Mormon Church writer says:

"He conferred authority in the Church; explained the importance of designating the organization by its proper name --the Church of Christ..."

John Hus who was being followed by the reformists had also affirmed fhat the Church of Christ is the Church established by Christ:

"'And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.'The Gospel speaks here of the Church of Christ, its faith and its foundation and authority. The Church is referred to by the words' will build my Church...."

All Roman catholics, Atheists, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Bereans, Baptists, Seventh-day Adventists, Orthodox, Evangelicals, Charismatics, members of the American cults, skeptics, and agnostics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

Christ as head of the Church of Christ did not resign but Benedicto resigned and showing that the Catholic cult is spurious!!!

And here's a proof that your Catholic cult is spurious!!! It is very funny that the spurious religion known as the Roman Catholic Church at one time has this bestial "VICARIVS FILII DEI" as leader or head!!! He is one of the reasons why the Vatican Church has now a waning sway across the globe:

Pope Benedict IX (1032 to 1048)

Gaining power and wealth from an early age as a result of his family's ties to the church, Benedict IX essentially inherited the title of pope since he was the nephew of both Pope John XIX and Pope Benedict VIII. He was only 20 years old, but quickly developed a reputation as being "cruel and immoral," according to "The Rise of the Medieval World, 500 – 1300" (Greenwood Publishing Group, 2002).

In fact, in his third book of dialogues, Pope Victor III wrote of Benedict IX's "rapes, murders and other unspeakable acts. His life as a pope so vile, so foul, so execrable, that I shudder to think of it," according to "The Spirit."

Saint Peter Damian had similar things to say of Benedict IX, describing him as "feasting on immorality" and "a demon from hell in the disguise of a priest," who sponsored orgies and routinely partook in bestiality, according to "The Spirit." In his final act of corruption as pope, Benedict IX decided that he wanted to pursue marriage, so he sold his holy title to his godfather for 1,500 pounds (680 kilograms) of gold.

All Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Atheists, and Protestants must improve their low I.Q.s!!!
