Rob, who do the catholic's pray to. Mary . From going into the catholic church where the Holy Water hangs on the wall and people dip their fingers in and cross themselve is a religious act
Kneeling and crossing yourself before entering the pew, that is a religious act. Then they pull out their prayer beads, religious act and the prayers are to Mary. Or the People are lighting candles at the different statues that adorn the church, that are suppose to be saints. And they are praying to them.
When do they pray to God in the name of Jesus , like Jesus commanded them to.
"Exodus 20 thou shall not make any craven images of anything in heaven in the earth beneath the earth and bow down to it."
So I am asking you if the catholic's were following the 10 commandments of God
and these saints are in heaven why does the catholic church have craven images of them and why are they being bowed too.
Why are you praying to statues who can't see you or hear you.
If they are not in Heaven and are in the earth, or under the earth, you are still bowing and praying to idols (craven images).
Jesus death on the cross ripped the veil in the temple into, now we can enter the Holy Of Holies and enter into the throne room of God ourselve our most High Priest is in Heaven.
the Levi Priesthood is no more.
We the believers of Jesus Christ belong to a royal priest hood.
So the Pope and the priest in the catholic church are obsolute Rob.
That is why the earthly temple was ripped in two from top to bottom God did away with it.
'WE THE PEOPLE, FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST, ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, WE ARE NOT MADE WITH HUMAN HANDS BUT BY THE WILL OF ALMIGHTY GOD WHO CHOSE US BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH WAS LAID.
(I'm just going to help you out a little bit, since you seem to be so certain you have a clear grasp on the meaning of everything you are saying.
The word you are looking for is "graven."
"Craven" is a different word.
