Sep 19 '21 at 12:34 comment added Ashish Eben Contd.. Further, Does the Mosaic law allow it, so how can Christians do it regardless its considered as a sacramental; praying to anyone else apart from the Holy Trinity is considered a sin (biblically), we can't be conformed to worldly/human standards/ways (Romans 12:1-2) because we are living testimony for those who have yet to come in saving knowledge of the Gospel (Titus 3:3-7, 1 John 5:5-8, 2 Thessalonians 1:10)
Sep 19 '21 at 12:33 comment added Ashish Eben Contd... 1 John 2:1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate before the Father— Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
Sep 19 '21 at 12:32 comment added Ashish Eben @ToMakPo Those humans/angels who are in Heaven can't hear our prayers (biblically) and plead it front of the Holy Trinity, as John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus. John. 4:24 God is spirit, and the people who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Apr 17 '20 at 9:09 comment added Lucian What is the historical context in which these commandments were given ? Were pious Jews drawing pictures of God and Moses in the desert, perhaps ?

Dec 11 '17 at 20:19 comment added ToMakPo @DJClayworth. It's not something different. People are preying to the statues of saints the same way people in Egypt were praying to statues. The commandment says Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, which is what is happening and it also says Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them which is also happening. I am just wondering how Catholics respond to or reconcile this concept. Again, I feel like this is coming off as antagonizing or judgmental and that really is not what I am doing. I really am wondering this.
Dec 11 '17 at 19:51 comment added DJClayworth @MakPo Now you are asking about something different, namely 'praying to saints' (which isn't really praying to saints, but is covered elsewhere on this site). You were asking about having statues in churches. It's a good idea to focus on only one question at once.
Dec 11 '17 at 19:48 comment added ToMakPo @DJClayworth, Maybe we have different definitions of worship. When I see someone pray to the patron saint of health to help a sick child, it looks the same as the ancient Egyptians preying to Isis, the goddess of health and magic, to heal their sick child. Again, I'm not trying to be contentious, but from an non-Catholic point of view, it seems to be the same thing.
Dec 11 '17 at 19:28 comment added DJClayworth You might want to rethink this question. You already read a post that says "these are not idols", and your only response is "it looks like idol worship to me". Many things 'look like' something, but actually aren't. You are aware that none of the things you describe are supposed to worshipped?
