I am not a catholic, and I want to know why do catholics pray to statues or worship idols? I also want to know why is it that catholics pray to the saints? I am just wondering because it is very different from our church. I am a christian and we christians do not belive in the catholic faith. What can you say about the Catholic Church? Do you think priests from the catholic church teaches their members what is really in the bible? I want an honest answer from people.

i PERSONALY BELIEVE THAT you can pray straight to God without needing to pray to all the saints. Confessing your sins is between you and God. God is going to hear your prayers even when you dont go to confession.Your heart, God knows it. There is never any fooling God.If you are really sorry, he knows it.

In my observation,catholic church is the anti Christ church.They practiced everything which prohibited by God in the Bible.When God says,"do not worshiped any image,they created all kinds of images and when God said the He hates repeated prayers,they invent all kinds of annoying prayers that repeats hundred times.In order to be saved,you have to pray to hundred of saints,virgin Mary,etc.In conclusion,if you hate heaven,then join the catholic churhc.

In my own Opinion, Catholics were not WORSHIPING STATUES OR IDOLS. It is only a way of giving an honor to GOD because by them GOD IS SEEN, actually everyone can be like CHRIST and become a SAINT'S by GOOD ACTS, that's what SAINTS do. So honoring to the SAINTS for me is GOOD and it is not a WORSHIP but only a sign of respect to their MODEL LIFE when they were still here on earth. We try to imitate them as we see GOOD AFTER EFFECT TO WHAT THEY DEED. Everyone is ENTITLED TO HIS OWN FAITH. ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS GREAT FOR ME, why, simply because JESUS CHRIST BUILD THIS, okey. Every Rabi/ Priest has it's own way of expressing their own learnings in teachings, they are also human and as human is not perfect, yet aspiring to be perfect like you, right! So, for me Priest did their very best to give the LOVE OF CHRIST TO ALL WHO IS HUNGER FROM THIS. Not only Priest but also PASTORS, EVANGELIZERS AND ALL SERVANTS OF GOD which is bound by the LOVE OF JESUS.
