My Dear Robert:
I am writing in response to your 11:41 am comment to my AGoodChoice blog post last Sunday, September 5, 2010.
What is this, “Holy Mother Church?” I have never heard of it before. Is this the whore spoken of in Revelation 17:5, 15, who is the mother of harlots. Jesus said, “I will build My Church.” I thought the Church belonged to Jesus Christ. How does it then become Holy Mother Church?
Paul writes that there is one mediator between God and man, the man, Christ Jesus. Mary is not a mediator. Jesus sits at the right hand of God. Scripture does not say that Mary sits with them.
We have a way to enter before God directly by the blood of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 10: 19). We are to enter boldly before God (Hebrews 4:16).
Asking a statue of Mary for something is not honoring to Mary. It is idolatry, plain and simple!
You and your friend need to repent of your sin and invite Jesus into your heart.
What America Needs, my friend, is repentance, a turning from idols to Jesus, and Him alone!
