There is something healthy about returning to one’s roots. When it comes to evangelical Christianity, its roots are found in the soil of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation.

    Catholics don't worship Mary. If you have evidence to the contrary please present it.

    But I'm not going to listen to hours of rubbish from John MacArthur.

      Matthew 4:10
      Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.’”

      Acts 10:26
      But Peter lifted him up, saying,“Stand up; I too am a man.”

      Luke 11:26b-28
      A woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to [Jesus], “Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts at which you nursed!” 28 But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”

      The world looks different to us who don't view the world through Roman Catholic colored glasses.



      That, to any Bible-believing Protestant, constitutes Pope Francis worshiping Mary.

        The usual Protestant reaction;

        A bunch of irrelevant scripture quotes and pictures that do not show what is claimed.

        I presume you think the people depicted are worhipping.

        How do you know that?
        Have you asked them?
        Can you see into their minds and hearts?

        The Catholic Church does not acknowledge any other God than the one true God.

        The Creed which we say every Sunday at Mass starts “I believe in one God…” That is what I subscribed to on this forum. Are you calling me a liar?

        From the Catechism of the Catholic Church
        I. "I BELIEVE IN ONE GOD"
        200 These are the words with which the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed begins. the confession of God's oneness, which has its roots in the divine revelation of the Old Covenant, is inseparable from the profession of God's existence and is equally fundamental. God is unique; there is only one God: "The Christian faith confesses that God is one in nature, substance and essence."
        I'll give you a scripture you might do well to ponder on:
        "Not as man sees does God see, because man sees the appearance but the Lord looks into the heart.” (1Sam 16:7)

        Do you think you are God to see into peoples hearts?

                A little into the first video (which is only twenty minutes long) Dr. John MacArthur quoted Pope John Paul II when he called out to "Mary, my mother!" when shot he thanked Mary for saving his life. I found this rather interesting to say the least, and thought the whole video series quite educational. One thing a person cannot deny, Dr. John MacArthur isn't afraid of offending. His series on Roman Catholicism is as well done as his Strange Fire Conference.

                  I disagree with the pseudo-jewish religion and with their wailing wall practice. But, they believe they're praying directly to God.

                          Why don't you actually review the material before commenting?
