Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf. Hebrews 7:25
Did you know that Catholics are Christian? Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
I shouldn’t be saying so, especially not so boldly but this religion is a christian religion. One of the reasons why it is an erroneous religion is for 3 reasons:
- Deceased followers of Christ are prayed to and honored with statues and lighting of candles
- Mary is represented as having an intercessory gift
- The Catholic bible has added written works to the original text of the bible
The bible speaks of ONE who intercedes for us in heaven, His name is Jesus The Christ. Nobody else is the mediator of man and God, no other name was given, not mother Mary or any of the old time saints. To make my point clear, I am a saint of God. And I should not be honored by anyone, especially not to be given the place of God.
Once u believe in Christ and confess with your mouth and separate yourself for God, the bible says that YOU are a saint of God.
But no saint is to be worshiped. Saint Peter went to Cornelius house and he bowed down to worship him, yet Peter told him to only worship and pray to God.
- Acts 10:25-26 When Peter entered, Cornelius met him, and fell at his feet and worshiped him. But Peter raised him up, saying, “Stand up; I too am just a man.”
The saints of God are simply people who put God first in their life , filled with Gods spirit to do Gods will and who God used and uses for HIS glory. God does not share His glory. Therefore we should stay clear of giving His glory to anyone but God HIMSELF.
- Isaiah 42:8 “I am the LORD, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, Nor My praise to graven images.”
Thank you Lord for your mercy and faith, I know that even while we are wrong in our beliefs you still know our hearts. I pray for your people who have faith in the one you sent, may you give them the conviction and discernment to be in your truth and not man made ideas. I thank you for allowing me to grow up with some Catholic views and also Jehovah Witnesses, and allowing me to know your truth now: I know that all things serve a purpose. I pray for those who have faith in a Higher being, in God, or the universe to receive the revelation of The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. In Jesus name, Amen.
