What Would Mary Really Say About Idolatry?

Mary, the mother of Jesus of Nazareth, was a very special woman, a very righteous woman, but nevertheless, like even her firstborn son (see Jesus, The Man), Mary was a normal human. Mary was as truly righteous as any mortal human could be, meaning that she observed God's Ten Commandments (see the Fact Finder question below) as best she possibly could, all of them, exactly as the Word of God specifies. Mary wasn't a murderer, a thief, a liar, or someone who disobeyed any other of the Commandments, including the one that plainly states "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them."

Holy Bible Mary died nearly 2,000 years ago and has remained dead ever since (the reason that it is also useless to pray to Mary, as millions do; see What Happens When You Die?) while awaiting her resurrection along with everyone else (see Resurrections, "To Meet The Lord In The Air" and When Will You Be Judged?). But what if she could hear, and respond, to the billions of people who have idolized her? How would a woman who absolutely never prayed to, or kneeled before, a religious statue or image in her entire life react to seeing millions of people kneeling before or praying to a religious statue or image of her? Would Mary be horrified? Would Mary call it evil and blasphemous? Yes, she certainly would because that is what God calls it. Mary did not worship in ways that God commanded not to do, in ways that God says are repulsive in God's sight. Mary would tell those mostly well-meaning, but grossly-deceived and misled people to worship God as she did, no idols - not of God, not of the Christ, not of anyone, or anything. Seeing the "Babylon" that exists today, Mary might say "Come Out Of Her, My People".

Worship God As Mary Did, Not As Mary Would Have Opposed

The Holy Scriptures plainly warn that those who keep worshipping idols, or keep using idols for worship, have God's wrath coming upon them. It's coming, it's going to happen to those who refuse to repent of their use of idols. If you are one of those who have been deceived into using idols, free yourself from them before it's too late. If you don't trash your idols, God is going to trash you.

"for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish." (Jeremiah 10:14-15 KJV)

"And the idols He shall utterly abolish. And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of The Lord, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth. In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; to go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of The Lord, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth." (Isaiah 2:18-21 KJV)

"Blessed are they that do His Commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie." (Revelation 22:14-15 KJV)
