A Roman Catholic Church without the “Mother of God” Mary is unthinkable. Likewise, if you look at any of these images of Mary, the Church of Rome immediately comes to mind. However, the literal adoration of Mary is just another label for the secret worship of the Egyptian “deity” Isis.

A “trademark” of the Roman Catholic Church is Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, who is revered beyond all measure and lifted to the highest heights. Anyone who has read the Bible (e.g. King James Version) without the instructions of a third party, let alone a Catholic clergyman, may have asked himself where the many described characteristics of Mary can be found in the gospel writings. These include in particular the immaculate (without sin) conception and her ascension. In this case, however, there is no sloppiness, because these places simply do not exist.
The Immaculate Conception of Mary is a well-kept tradition and teaching of the Catholic Church, nothing more and nothing less. It was only more recently that the Church of Rome included this teaching in the ranks of its “exclusive” teachings. Immaculateness has only been an official dogma of Rome since 1854. With this quality, God has protected Mary from all sin since her birth and also freed her from original sin. The Catholic Church thus proves that it does not know what to do with the term “eternal righteousness of God”. Because the individual liberation from the (Catholic) original sin would be arbitrary compared to every other human being. God chose Mary.
Even more “delayed,” the Vatican “Supreme Shepherd” decided in 1950 to give official status to the Assumption of Mary as well. The teaching about her ascension has been haunting the world since the 6th century, but Pope Pius XII. probably thought that this could look even nicer with an inclusion in the apostolic constitution.
Then there is a whole series of other characteristics of Mary that cannot be found with a single syllable in the Bible if one goes to the search for truth. These include “Queen of Heaven”, “Virgin of all virgins” and “Mother of the poorest”.
Now there are resourceful scientists who want to have found out that Christianity has a lot in common with pagan religions of antiquity. In addition to the celebration of Easter, including eggs and rabbits, this also applies to the regularity of Christmas. However, these scientists are not entirely wrong. But many of them get the wrong impression that because of the very striking parallels, the different religions have the same origin.
However, there is a “small” error in reasoning. It is not about respective modifications of the same origin, but about the continuation of these pagan cults and religions from Egypt and Babylon with freshly provided labels. The focus is on the glorification or worship of the sun in the various occupations by the gods, each of which has a different name. This cult of sun worship continued through the Medo-Persia Empire, Greece and the Roman Empire. The many gods largely retained their characteristics, but were only named differently. Ra, Baal, Mitras, Zeus, Jupiter, Isis, Ishtar, Apollo, Aphrodite, Fides, etc., etc.
This cult of the gods passed smoothly from the Roman Empire to the “little horn” described in the Bible (Daniel 7) and thus it is about the Roman Catholic Church or the papacy. One of the greatest enemies of this church was, is and will naturally remain the Bible, the Word of God. It was not for nothing that possession or independent study of the Bible was once punished with death. The reader could quickly have recognized that the teachings of the cath. Church have nothing to do with this gospel, but describe exactly what is described in Scripture as “man of sin”, “son of perdition” and “abomination of the earth”.
John Wycliffe, Jan Hus, Martin Luther and many other reformers recognized this.
The ancient Egyptian goddess Isis is at the center of this pagan cult of the gods. One of their “trademarks” was the headdress, which consisted of an open crescent moon or a shell and a sun disk standing above it. Just as this composition shows the cut of the chalice with the wafer held above it (“host”). With the veneration of the Host, the Catholic priest pays homage to the pagan deity Isis on the one hand and taunts Jesus Christ with the doctrine of repeated sacrifice and transubstantiation on the other.
It is obvious that the parallels between (pseudo)Christianity and pagan cults are definitely related. But these are based on the gnostic false teachings continued by Rome and not on the teachings of the gospel. Because Easter eggs, rabbits and Santa Clauses, St. Nicholas, the Assumption of Mary, immaculateness, the immortal soul, etc. etc… are contents of the Roman Catechism and not the Bible.
Isis, the highly revered “virgin goddess” of ancient Egypt has a number of qualities that should make every Catholic prick up his ears.
|Characteristics Egyptian Isis||Characteristics of Catholic Mary|
|Role model for all mothers||Holy Mother of Divine Grace|
|Mother of God||Mother of God|
|Mother of Horus||Mother of Jesus|
|Virgin Sacred Earth||Maiden of Maidens|
|Mother of all virtues||The most chaste|
|Role model for all||Mother of the poor|
|Mirror of justice and truth||Mirror of justice|
|Most Powerful, Most Merciful and Just||Seat of wisdom|
|Sistrum (ancient Egyptian frame rattle) made of gold||House of gold|
|Queen of Heaven and Universe||Queen of Heaven|
|Virgin mother||She conceived without sin (immaculate)|
|Mysterious Mother of the World||The mystical rose|
|Image: Mother with child||Image: Mother with child|
The properties of Isis can be found in the relevant literature of the so-called Theosophists. Among them is Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and her book “Isis Unveiled”.
The fact that the famous Isis is said to be the powerful, merciful and just comes from the ancient Egyptian “Book of the Dead”. This book was written by Pharaoh Tutmosis III. (died 1450 BC). Part of his obelisk stands today in Rome, on the Lateran Square in front of the Lateran, the main Roman Catholic church.
The Mary depicted by the Catholic Church has little to do with the Mary described in the Bible. In fact, Mary is the mother of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God. The angel Gabriel had previously brought her the message that she would give birth to a son. So in Luke 1:35:
What else? Almost nothing more. A few more anecdotes are described in the Bible about their escape to Egypt, their return to Nazareth and also the accidental abandonment of Jesus in Jerusalem. A few details about the timing of Jesus’ crucifixion, death, and resurrection followed. Maria died one day and has been in her grave ever since. There is absolutely nothing in Scripture about an ascension, its sinlessness, its quality as queen in heaven, etc.
Rather, this Catholic Maria is actually the “revered” Isis with all her characteristics. Rome only gave her a Christian-looking robe. So that the worship of a goddess and long dead person painted on canvas, carved out of wood or chiseled out of stone could be accepted by the credulous little sheep, Rome unceremoniously removed the second commandment from their repertoire of norms. This 2nd commandment reads according to Exodus 20:4-6:
This prohibits any worship, adoration or even adoration of any object, of whatever appearance and nature. In addition to the direct adoration of Mary in the Catholic Church, there are now countless other dead who have been declared saints and who are to be invoked by the church of Rome. This is what Ignatius of Loyola wrote in his book “Spiritual Exercises” in the “Rules on Church Attitude” in point 6:
“One cherishes the relics of the saints by showing veneration to them and directing prayers to the saints.“
With such obvious blasphemy on the part of the Roman Catholic Church, the call in Revelation 18:4-5 remains for every Catholic and also for those who still belong to the evangelical follower churches:
