Not content with the shame and humiliation the Lord Jesus Christ had to endure on the cross for God's vessels of mercy whom the Father chose to redeem before the foundation of the world, Anti-christ and company felt the need to stick a false jesus on a cross for the world to mock via television - what the Pope failed to understand is this graven image can't save him - neither can Mary or any of the saints.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them...
Christians are told over 126 times in scripture that they are forbidden to make or use images of Saints or others in their worship.
"Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves...Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female."
"Neither shalt thou set thee up any image; WHICH THE LORD THY GOD HATETH."
"Thou shalt NOT BOW DOWN THYSELF TO THEM, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy am a jealous God..."
1 Corinthians 10:19-20
"What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?...the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice TO DEVILS, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils."
...LET THE DEAD BURY THEIR DEAD.
"TURN YE NOT UNTO IDOLS, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the LORD your God."
"The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not; They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths. They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them."
The scripture below found in Mark's gospel is a fine description of the Whore of Babylon
"Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition."
"Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.
For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him(The true God) all ye gods.
I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will i not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not i told the from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, i know not any.
They that make a graven imageare all of them vanity; and their delectablethings shall not profit; and theyare their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed
Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?
Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen, they are of men: let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.
This is what the church of Rome is guilty of:
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptable man...
I conclude with this verse by Jesus Christ - fully appropriate for the Antichrist's funeral:
Chris - Jesus' Boy
