PNRC insists that Catholics worship Mary and lists a number of quotes from Catholic documents that allegedly prove this. I have a number of quotes myself, but they have nothing to do with Mary. It do this to prove a point.
Genesis 2:2 (KJV)
“And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work.”
I guess God gets tired and needs a vacation like the rest of us.
Psalm 109: 9-10 (KJV)
“Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.”
The perfect psalm to use when praying for your enemy.
"I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods wil I sing praise unto thee."
You mean to tell me that the Mormons are right? There is more than one God?
Exodus 32:14 (KJV)
“And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.”
Jonah 3:10 (KJV)
"… and God repented of the evil that he had said he would do unto them; and he did it not."
God repenting of evil? Reading this makes me feel a lot better when I go to Confession.
"And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God?
I guess Jesus is neither good nor God. What does that make him then?
“And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
Of course! We all know that we always get our prayers answered.
“If any man come to me, and hate not father and mother and wife and children … he cannot be my disciple.”
That’s money I’ll save on Christmas gifts.
Luke 14:10 (KJV)
“… Friend, go up higher: then thou shalt have WORSHIP in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.”
… Behold, I (Jesus) will make them come an worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee."
Human beings receiving worship? And I thought only Catholics did that.
The point of all this is that a text out of context is a pretext. A text must be interpreted and understood within its linguistic, literary, historical, and theological context. “Worship”, for example, was the old English equivalent of “honor” or “reverence.” It did not have the same meaning back in the days of King James that it does now. PNRC quotes on Mary are all taken out of context and appear to say things they don’t really mean. Just like the Bible verses I quoted above.
