Archive for the ‘apparitions of Mary’ Category

What is the common bond for unity of all the religions of the world? Why is it that all over north America, Roman Catholic priests are being invited into evangelical churches. Does the Vatican have a strategy behind this unity? Are the errors of a false gospel being covered with a thin venier of truth? Are the ‘lost brethren’ being won back to the holy mother church of Rome? Can evangelicals have unity with Catholics when they are divided on the essentials of the gospel? What is the fertile ground for such deception? Is truth being suppressed for the sake of unity? What is our response to false teachers according to the Bible?

Apparitions of Mary
by Mike Gendron, May 5, 2013

I am always amazed to hear of people traveling hundreds of miles and spending thousands of dollars to seek a message from an apparition of Mary when they can open their Bible and receive a message from Christ right where they are. Over 7 million Catholics make pilgrimages every year to the sites of Fatima, Lourdes, Medjugorje and other places where Mary has reportedly appeared. Marian apparitions and their messages play an integral part of worship in Roman Catholicism. Consider just one of the ungodly messages from a Fatima apparition that clearly diverts people away from worship of the triune God…

Comment from Understand the Times:

There are those who take Marion apparitions seriously. Worse yet there are those who actually believe that statues of Mary can actually bleed or shed tears, The Bible is clear that praying to statues is idolatry and if a statue of Mary actually bled or shed tears, this would be a lying sign and wonder that Jesus said would be a sign of His soon return.

Controversial Mary Statue Weeps Because ‘We’re Killing This World’

For three months, the city of Windsor, Ontario was abuzz with the story of a Virgin Mary statue that wept tears of oil. Ensconced in a small shrine built on Fadia Ibrahim’s front lawn, the statue attracted hundreds of pilgrims, though it caused havoc for neighbors, city officials, and church authorities.

Miraculous images of the Virgin Mary, part of a tradition commonly known as “folk piety,” exist independently of any religious authority, and the fervor generated is sometimes too much for the Church—or anyone—to control. In this most recent case the attention eventually overwhelmed the statue’s owner, such that, on November 5, in order to protect the privacy of her family, she had the statue relocated to St. Charbel Maronite Catholic Church. In fact, the Virgin told her she would prefer pilgrims visit her in church rather than on Ibrahim’s front lawn.

Tony Blair’s sister-in-law Lauren Booth converts to Islam after a ‘holy experience’ in Iran

Tony Blair’s sister-in-law has converted to Islam after having a ‘holy experience’ in Iran.

Broadcaster and journalist Lauren Booth, 43 – Cherie Blair’s half-sister – said she now wears a hijab head covering whenever she leaves her home, prays five times a day and visits her local mosque ‘when I can’.

She decided to become a Muslim six weeks ago after visiting the shrine of Fatima al-Masumeh in the city of Qom.

‘It was a Tuesday evening and I sat down and felt this shot of spiritual morphine, just absolute bliss and joy,’ she told The Mail on Sunday.
