…Catholic worship images which they keep in their homes and churches?
Catholic catechism requires that members should have for themselves idols or image to worship:
“15. Ought to worship holy image? “ We should have , particularly in our church , images of our lord , as also of the blessed Virgin and the saints , and we should pay them due honor and veneration .” (Cat echism of Christian doctrine . p.87)
BUT THE BIBLE teaches otherwise. God prohibits his people from having other gods besides him or from worshiping idols or images. those who defy this commandment will be punished:
“you shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image-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 nor serve them. For I , the LORD your God , am a jealous God , visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me.” (Exo. 20:3-5, New King James Version)
“… those who worship idols , and all liars-the place for them is the lake burning with fire and sulfur , which is the second death.”(Rev.21:8, Today’s English Version)
