What are the Protestant issues with the Rosary, I long for these things to be cleared up.
Is it thought to be too focused on Mary?There are definitely more prayers to Mary
(in terms of quantity), but qualitatively the
Rosary is mostly focused on Jesus.
People don’t still think we use it to worship Mary, do they?The most we do in the Rosary in regard to Mary
is ask her to keep us in her prayers, to “pray for
us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.”
I am BY FAR not looking to fight, but merely to provide yet one
more outlet for Protestants who don’t understand or simply re–
nounce the Rosary.
Maybe the Rosary is thought to be unbiblical? I can assure you that it is. Consider David & Goliath,
how many stones did David use? Five. How many cubits were the gallows from which the wicked
Haman hung? Fifty. How many Psalms? One Hundred & Fifty. Consider even Genesis 3 : 15 **… **
All Rosary Numbers. The Bible so clearly prefigures the Rosary and the use of it against the Devil.What about Genesis 3:15? Philo Judaeus, Flavius Josephus (both being
contemporary to Jesus), St. Jerome, even Moses Maimonides (12th Cen-
tury CE) all say that it is to be read that ***she ***will crush the Serpent’s head.
I really do just want to clear up any confusion about the Rosary, as it causes me great angst
