why Roman catholic beleives and worshipping the mother of jesus instead of jesus.. Is it the real desire of god? Bible opposing the idol worship,then why RC people worshipping the mother mary. jesus really hate the idol worship,even other religions doing the same ..then wat would be the difference?

roman catholic worship only one god and he is jesus. mary being the mother of jesus, must be given a kind of respect. additionally, roman catholic did not worship those images you have seen on the church. roman catholic only give sign of veneration to those images of saints. meaning they only respect those images of a saints. but not worshiping.

You are correct. Roman Catholics do not worship any statues or relics. Try to think of it this way ... its like having a picture of someone you hold dear. The image makes you feel closer to them and what they mean to us. We do not love the paper the picture is on ... we love who is in the picture.

The roman catholic church was 1st.It has certain doctrines that other christians do not believe.So these others decided to oppose this church and establish one of their own that would follow the doctrines that they believed were right.I'm a protestant.We believe in Jesus Christ as it is given in the Bible that He is the way,the truth and the life-through Him alone we can reach heaven.While roman catholics have made several modifications to the original version of the Bible and give more importance to Mother Mary who was only actually the woman God chose to send his Son on earth through.If you need answers to any questions you can always read the Bible.I believe it covers every area of life you can think of and will be the best guide.Good luck!

The very first Church started by people who walked the earth at the time of Jesus was the Celtic Church, in Galicia (Now Turkey) Following that the various branches of the Orthodox Church. in the 11th century the Catholic Church finally split from the Orthodox Church. The Catholic Church is responsible for many innovations and corruptions of Christianity, including mixing it with Aristoteleanism under Thomas Aquinus, Confession to a priest (The instruction being to confess to one another) Veneration of Mary and other belief about Mary. Also Jesus commands his followers to live as Brothers and Sisters not to have Priests or Rabbis, to call no man father, (Pope means father Nor were the Orthodox true to the original idea, being practicers of idolatry (Icons) all the best urban
