ARE CATHOLICS GUILTY OF IDOLATRY?

IGLESIA NI KRISTO continuously accused the Catholic Church of Idolatry, because of the various images of saints displayed on the Catholic Churches.

As the bible says in Exodus 20:3-6You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

But are the Catholic’s statues of Saints can be categorized as an Idols?  According to Webster Dictionary, the word “IDOL” means an “image used as an object of worship.”

The main idea there is OBJECT OF WORSHIP.

Exactly. Catholics DO NOT worship the images of saints curved out of wood or stone.

WHAT THE CATHOLICS VENERATES ARE NOT THE CARVED WOOD OR STONE ITSELF, BUT  THE MEMORY OF THE SAINTS OR HOLY ONE BEING REPRESENTED BY THAT STATUE.

Now, if IGLESIA NI KRISTO insist that merely  possessing a statue of saints is A FORM OF IDOLATRY, how COULD THEY explain the bronze statue of Felix Y. Manalo, ENSHRINED in their Central Office in Quezon City?

    you said that INC insist that possessing statue of saints is a form of idoltary then you said how can INC explain the bronze statue of Brother Felix Y Manalo.Well,first of all were not treating Brother Felix like a saint because he is the last messenger of God he is the Sugo,second it is said already in the writings in the statue that we shall not worship him or his images we just comemorate him.So the blogger who posted this is just a dumb person.

      lam nio isa nalang yan,, lahat tayo may mga pangdepensa sa bawat isa, may paliwanag ang inc, may paliwanag KAMING mga katoliko, so siguro mas maganda kung sundin nalang natin ung bilin ni Jesus na tayo ay mag-ibigan,, tyaka sa kabilang buhay nlang tayo magkita kita, dahil marami rin naman kaming pinaghahawakan na salita sa biblia, at isa na jan ay ang “walang relihiyon ang magliligtas satin“,, dahil si jesus ang daan ang katotohanan at ang buhay“ kung sino ang hindi ninyo pinaniniwalaa na si jesus,, di ninyo pinapatalo yang statwa ni bro. Felix, ganun dn nmn kami, ang importante parepareho lang tayong may mga rebulto,, nga lang magkaiba tayo ng paliwanag, pero wala kayong karapatang humusga at ganun din kami dahil ang Diyos lang ang may karapatan at sabi nya na ang gamitin ninyong panghusga sa kapwa nio ay syang gagamitin sa inio…
