While Catholicism teaches that Mary is our "refuge,"
the God that inspired the writing of the Holy Bible declares a totally different message.
Please see Dt. 33:27; 2 Sam. 22:3, 31;
Psa. 2:12; 5:11; 7:1; 9:9; 11:1; 14:6; 16:1; 17:7; 18:2, 30;
NEVER does God's message deviate.
It ALWAYS states that God is our "refuge."
NEVER does it point us to Mary as our "refuge."
According to the present-day Catholic
is also our intercessor.
This too is NOT the message of God's word.
NOWHERE in the New Testament is Mary (or any Old Testament saint) ever represented as one to whom we are to pray so they in turn can take our prayers to God.
MEDIATOR between God and man is Jesus (1
The first-century Christians ONLY prayed to God (Acts 4:24; 2 Cor. 13:7; 1 Tim. 5:5; etc.) and Jesus (Acts 7:59,60).
Also, Jesus commanded the Christians to pray to the Father (Mt. 6:6,9; Lk. 11:2)
or Himself (John 14:14),
NEVER to a dead saint or to his mother after she would die.
Moreover, Christians told others to pray to God (Acts 8:22; 1 Cor. 11:13; etc.).
To repeat the truth about Mary as stated
by the Lord and first-century Christians is not denigrating her.
It is simply stating the truth.
MANY sincere people think that Mary, the
mother of the Lord Jesus, has appeared in Fatima.
How sad to see them look to her as their "refuge" and "the way" that will lead them to God, instead of Jesus.
See Psa. 2:12; John 14:6.
Eternal souls are in danger of eternal damnation because of this.
Repentance towards God and faith in
Christ Jesus will bring salvation to anyone who meets those
conditions (Acts 20:21).
visions, did you know that in Mormons
likewise claim visions from God?
But their visions contradict the visions in Catholicism such as what occurred at Fatima!
So either God is confused by these contradictory messages or there is more than one source for visions.
The Bible declares that the deceiver, the devil, can perform visions (2 Cor. 11:14).
Hence, we MUST go by Scripture to know God's message on salvation is (2 Tim. 3:15-17).
Since the message at Fatima does NOT
agree with Scripture, it is impossible that it can be from the
same source that gave us the Bible.
(The same can be said about the visions in Mormonism and Seventh-Day Adventism.)
Please find out what the message of the
New Testament is by reading it for yourself.
Your eternal destiny depends on this and your acting upon its message.
GOD BLESS YOU
