What Would Mary Really Say About Idolatry?
by Wayne Blank
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)
