Galatians 4:4-5, "But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons."
This passage alone proves Mary was not sinless. Like those redeemed "under the law" she was "under the law" as well. And to be "under" means to be "under the curse" of the law.
Galatians 3:10, "For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them."
John 8:32 "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
You will be blessed with numerous facts as well as links you can share with your Catholic friends as to the open and evident acts of "Mary Worship" that the Church of Rome teaches its flock. Please understand this information and all the information on this website has been compiled as a tool to help herald the three Angels message to those still trapped within the grasp of Rome. Please also understand that not only Catholics are trapped in the Roman grasp. For all those that embrace the inventions of Rome are in danger of eternal damnation as well.
"Membership in the Militia means complete dedication to the Kingdom of God and to the salvation of souls through Mary Immaculate." -Pope John Paul II
"We have an advocate in Mary that the father, Son, and Holy Spirit cannot say no to. It is impossible for them to say no to her! -Fr. Stephan Scheier
Pope John Paull II has 'dedicated himself and his Pontificate to Our Lady.' He bears the letter "M" for Mary in his coat of arms. And his personal motto, which is embroidered on the side of his robes in Latin is the following: "TOTUS TUUS SUM MARIA", which in English translates to: "MARY, I'M ALL YOURS."
For those that think the "Totus Tuus Sum Maria" is a fictitious proclamation of Pope John Paul II, see this excerpt from a Los Angeles Times News Article.
"By awarding the Virgin a central place in the cathedral's narrative, the archdiocese is keeping faith with a long, if fluctuating, Catholic and Orthodox tradition of devotion to Our Lady, a tradition enjoying a resurgence under Pope John Paul II. (The pope's personal motto, "Totus tuus sum, Maria," or "I am all yours, Mary," reflects his belief that the Virgin intervened to save his life from an assassin's bullet in 1981 so that he could help defeat European communism.)" –
Also notice the official "Coat of Arms" of John Paul II…
I got this pic off the Vatican website. Notice the huge letter "M" signifying John Paul II's desire to glorify MARY as his god in his pontificate.
The following table compares the Mary of Roman Catholic theology and religious practice with the Biblical portrayal of Mary and with the goddess which is worshipped by Wiccans and modern pagans. My information about Wicca comes from the book "Wicca: Satan's Little White Lie" by Bill Schnoebelen (who was the high priest of a Wiccan coven before he became a Christian), the "World Book," the on-line version of "The Encyclopedia Brittanica," and numerous web sites.
Roman Catholic Cardinal Gibbons said…
"Do you ask me, is Mary willing to assist you? Does she really take an interest in your welfare? Or is she so much absorbed by the fruitation of God as to be indifferent to our miseries? "Can a woman forget her infant so as not to have pity on the fruit of her womb"? (Isaiah 49:15), Even so Mary will not forget us" "Faith of our Fathers, By Cardinal James Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore, page 225, 1893 edition.
Let's see what Isaiah really says:
"Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? YEA, they may forget, Yet I will not forget thee" Isaiah 49:15
A Roman Catholic Cardinal openly twists the Word of God why? Because he knows that if he plays the odds right MOST Catholics won't open their Bibles to verify what he said. They are taught not to open Bibles and if they do they are taught not to trust them.
FIRST BIBLICAL SIGN OF MARY WORSHIP
"And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked." (Luke 11:27)
(Glowing statue of Mary at "Our Lady of the Snows, in Belleville Illinois" is seen in the foreground, and all the raised hands of the Catholic parishioners in open and obvious worship.)
OUR LORD'S IMMEDIATE RESPONSE TO THIS?
"But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it." (Luke 11:28)
When I stated "first Biblical sign of Mary worship" I do not take into account the "Queen of Heaven" worship spoken of in Jeremiah. What I shared here is the first time they attributed that unbiblical worship to MARY the mother of Jesus. To this day, Rome calls Mary the "Queen of Heaven." This is the exact same title given to the Pagan goddess of old.
The "Woman" Of Genesis 3:15
It states this in Genesis 3:15, "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."
For literally centuries the Vatican has declared that Mary the mother of Jesus is the "woman" in this passage. But according to Isaiah 28:9-10, "Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:"
Nowhere in Scripture do we see the Vatican's claim that the woman in Genesis 3:15 is Mary. In fact, when you ask them they cannot give Scripture, but as the politicians they are they double talk their way out of the argument. Or at least they try and the only ones believing them are those that don't read Bibles. How do I know this? When you do the study as Isaiah suggests when finding doctrine you discover the following.
In prophecy, a woman is defined as a church…
Jeremiah 6:2, "I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman."
Jeremiah 3:20, "Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, saith the LORD."2 Corinthians 11:2, "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ."Revelation 21:9, “And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb's wife."
As is obvious, the woman in Scripture and especially when it comes to prophetic symbols,and Genesis 3:15 is most assuredly a prophetic statement of our Lord, this means the woman is in fact the obedient church. Now notice this. As Paul is talking to the churches he stated the following.
Romans 16:20, "And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen."
Sometimes it's just that easy to see the truth and expose the lie. Problem is, most Catholic refuse to open Bibles and so this truth will never come to them until it is way too late. Because as also prophesied, when the judgment of hellfire falls EVERYONE in the flames will have their self-deception wiped away. That's right, ALL of them lied to themselves and made all sorts of excuses as to why it was ok to stay in the Roman Catholic church even though those coming to warn them had truth THEY KNEW was truth when presented.
