Mary is a very central part in the Roman Catholic system. You will find the Pope praying his "Hail Mary" prayers every day no matter where you will find him in his travels around the world. After he visits a country, you will find the Pope entrusting that same country into the care and protection of "Mother Mary" as he did after his recent trip to the USA in September 2015. I prayed the rosary many times as a Roman Catholic, but all of that idolatry stopped when I was born again of he Spirit. That should be the testimony of any person who has been truly delivered from the false doctrines of the Roman Catholic system. Why? Because the Holy Spirit will always testify of Jesus Christ, and there should no longer be a need or a desire to pray to GOD, through anyone else. When I got saved I knew instantly that I had been living in deception, and I knew that the real Mary never heard a single prayer of mine. Here are some of the reasons why you should stop praying to Mary immediately:
The Bible Declares That The Holy Spirit Testifies About Jesus Not Mary
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. (John16:13)
Friends this is not a light thing. If the Holy Spirit is pointing you to Jesus Christ, then you need to listen to him. You will not find anything in the scriptures about the Holy Spirit pointing you to Mary, or any other person for that matter. That is pure idolatry and nothing but man made tradition and superstition. It is demonic at it's very root, and this is coming from an ex-Catholic. You need to REPENT of that and run from the idolatry that is rampant in the Roman Catholic system.
The Bible Declares That Jesus Is The Only Way
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)
If a person has been truly saved, then you will find them exalting the name of Jesus Christ, not Mary. Jesus is one who shed his blood on the cross, not Mary. That also applies to ALL other religions for that matter. That applies to the Jew as well as the Gentile! There is no other name and there is no other way for a person to be SAVED outside of Jesus Christ!
