Roman Catholic Protestors Throw Pope’s New Idols into the Tiber River
In a recent post, we noted the outrage by some members of the Roman Catholic church due to idols of topless pregnant ladies (who are not representative of the Madonna) being blessed by the pope. Now, a group of men has recovered the idols and have revealed why they stole the statues in order to destroy them.
The men have said:
“This was done for only one reason: Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, his Blessed Mother, and everybody who follows Christ, are being attacked by members of our own Church. We do not accept this! We will no longer stay silent! We start to act NOW!
Because we love humanity, we cannot accept that people of a certain region should not get baptized and therefore are being denied entrance into heaven. It is our duty to follow the words of God, like our holy Mother did. There is not second way of salvation.
Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat! [Christ conquers, Christ reigns, Christ rules!]”
All we can say to all this is, it’s about time someone recognizes the widespread and deplorable idolatry of Rome. Our Lord said, “Come out from among them!” The Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century was a break from Roman superstition, idol worship, and a host of other atrocities. It is never too late to join the ranks of the truly faithful.
William Farel, upon his return to Montbeliard in the sixteenth century, snatched the pretended relics of St. Anthony from the priest who was carrying them, and threw them into the water, exclaiming, “You miserable idolaters, can you not cease from your idolatry?” Abandoning idols and returning to the living God was precisely what the Thessalonians did [1 Thess. 1:9] and so did those in Ephesus that burned their magic books [Acts 19:13-20].
Christianity begins where idolatry stops.
