Man, you're one 911 conspiracy Christianity guy, Jethro.<quoted text>i have witnessed people bowing to these idols and praying to them,strictly forbidden,but the church changed the commandments without authority in order to make money."You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or 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 or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God,.....funny how you don't see this in the catholic version of the commandments,simply because of "MONEY",You shall not make for yourself a carved image or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath. "you going to say this does not apply to the iodols made by catholic owned factories?"
Ok, I get how people could THINK we're worshipping statutes at first glance.
If I just stumbled into America and walked pass the Lincoln Memorial, perhaps i would think those guys were worshiping that large figure. Many folks bow their heads in front of it in prayer.
I just think you're so filled with self hate and bigotry towards the Church, that you cling onto whatever negative things about them that is out there.
If I say the Catholic Church fed 4,000 homeless yesterday in the Twin Cities and opened up their doors for them to sleep in the basement.(which they did) you'd say "I'm sure it was a stupid sandwich and a fruit cup and they probably made em sleep on the floor"
