You are about to read unscriptural teachings about their fabricated Catholic Mary, which are wrong and deadly. Regarding the Catechism of the Catholic Church, they have written:
The Catechism of the Catholic Church Is Authoritative
The Catechism of the Catholic Church, lastly, is offered to every individual who asks us to give an account of the hope that is in us (cf. 1 Pet 3:15) and who wants to know what the Catholic Church believes (p. 6).
Furthermore, Pope John Paul II wrote the following about its use:
Therefore, I ask all the Church Pastor's and the Christian faithful to receive this catechism in a spirit of communion and to use it assiduously in fulfilling their mission of proclaiming the faith and calling people to the Gospel life (p. 5).
Hence, all teachings found within its pages have the endorsement of the
Pope regarding the official teachings of the Roman Catholic Church since
Vatican Council II. The following quotes regarding the Catholic Mary are all found within the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
(The number at the beginning of the quote is the paragraph number. The
page number is cited at the end of the quote. All bold emphasis is my
own, unless otherwise stated.)
The Church In Paradise Is Centered Around Jesus and the Catholic Mary, With NO Mention of The Heavenly Father!
The Catholic Mary was Redeemed at Conception
491 Through the centuries the Church has become ever more aware that Mary, "full of grace" through God, was redeemed from the moment of her conception. That is what the dogma of the Immaculate Conception confesses, as Pope Pius IX proclaimed in 1854:
And Preserved from Original Sin
The Most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment
of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and
by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race,
preserved immune from all stain of original sin. (pp. 123, 124)
The Catholic Mary Had NO Personal Sin
493 The Fathers of the Eastern tradition call the Mother of God "the All-Holy" (Panagia) and celebrate her as "free from any stain of sin, as though fashioned by the Holy Spirit and formed as a new creature." By the grace of God Mary remained free of every personal sin her whole life long. (p. 124)
They Teach Mary was Sinless Her Whole Life
508 From among the descendants of Eve, God chose the Virgin Mary to be the mother of his Son. "Full
of grace," Mary is "the most excellent fruit of redemption" (SC 103):
from the first instant of her conception, she was totally preserved from
the stain of original sin and she remained pure from all personal sin
throughout her life. (p. 128)
Mary was Sinless and Co-redemptrix with Christ;
494 ... Espousing the divine will for salvation wholeheartedly, without a single sin to restrain her, she gave herself entirely to the person and to the work of Her Son; she did so in order to serve the mystery of redemption with him and dependent on him, by God's grace:
Mary was the Cause of her own Salvation,
as well as the Human Race;
We have Life through Mary
As St. Irenaeus says, "being obedient she became the cause of salvation for herself and for the whole human race."
Hence not a few of the early Fathers gladly assert ...: "The knot of
Eve's disobedience was untied by Mary's obedience: what the virgin Eve
bound through her disbelief, Mary loosened by her faith." Comparing her
with Eve, they call Mary "the Mother of the living" and frequently
claim: "Death through Eve, life through Mary." (pp. 124, 125)
Marian Doctrine, Mary The Mother of God
495 ... In fact, the One whom she conceived as man by the Holy Spirit,
who truly became her son according to the flesh, was none other than the
Father's eternal Son, the second person of the Holy Trinity. Hence the Church confesses that Mary is truly "Mother of God" (Theotokos). (p. 125)
The Catholic Mary is a Perpetual Virgin
499 The deepening of faith in the virginal motherhood led the Church to confess Mary's real and perpetual virginity even
in the act of giving birth to the Son of God made man. In fact,
Christ's birth "did not diminish his mother's virginal integrity but
sanctified it." And so the liturgy of the Church celebrates Mary Aeiparthenos, the "Ever-virgin." (p. 126)
510 Mary "remained a virgin in conceiving her Son, a virgin in giving
birth to him, a virgin in carrying him, a virgin in nursing him at her
breast, always a virgin" (p. 128)
Jesus was Mary's Only Son, but
501 Jesus is Mary's only son, but her spiritual motherhood extends to all men whom
indeed he came to save: "The Son whom she brought forth is he whom God
placed as the first-born among many brethren, that is, the faithful in
whose generation and formulation she cooperates with a mother's love.
She is the Spiritual Mother of All
507 At once virgin and mother, Mary is the symbol and the most perfect realization of the Church: "the
church indeed ... by receiving the word of God in faith becomes herself
a mother. By preaching and Baptism she brings forth sons, who are
conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of God, to a new and immortal
life. She herself is a virgin, who keeps in its entirety and purity the
faith she pledged to her spouse." (p. 128)
Mary Cooperated in Human Salvation
511 The Virgin Mary "cooperated through free faith and obedience in
human salvation" ... By her obedience she became the new Eve, mother of
the living. (p. 128)
The Church is in Mary
829 "But while in the most Blessed Virgin the Church has already
reached that perfection whereby she exists without spot or wrinkle, the
faithful still strive to conquer sin and increase in holiness. And so they turn their eyes to Mary": in her the Church is already the "all-holy." (p. 220)
It is Mother AND Son in the Work of Salvation
964 Mary's role in the Church is inseparable from her union with Christ and flows directly from it. "This union of the mother with the Son in the work of salvation
is made manifest from the time of Christ's virginal conception up to
his death"; it is made manifest above all at the hour of his Passion:
Thus the Blessed Virgin advanced in her pilgrimage of faith, and faithfully persevered in her union with her Son unto the cross. There she stood, in keeping with the divine plan, enduring with her only begotten Son the intensity of his suffering, joining herself with his sacrifice in her mother's heart, and
lovingly consenting to the immolation of this victim, born of her: to
be given, by the same Christ Jesus dying on the cross, as a mother to
his disciple, with these words: "Woman, behold your son." (p. 251)
Mary was Resurrected Bodily to Heaven
966 "Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of
original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was
taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as
Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death."
as Queen over all things;
Mary's Resurrection is Part of Jesus' Resurrection
Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her
Son's Resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other
Christians: (p. 252)
Mary is Co-savior in Restoring Supernatural Life to Souls
968 Her role in relation to the Church and to all humanity goes still further. "In a wholly singular way she
cooperated by her obedience, faith, hope, and burning charity in the
Savior's work of restoring supernatural life to souls. For this reason
she is a mother to us in the order of grace. (p. 252)
Mary's Intercession From Heaven Brings Gifts of Salvation; Mary is Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix
969 "This motherhood of Mary in the order of grace continues
uninterruptedly from the consent which she loyally gave at the
Annunciation and which she sustained without wavering beneath the cross,
until the eternal fulfilment of all the elect. Taken up to heaven
she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold
intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation ....
Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles
of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix." (p. 252)
Mary doesn't Diminish Christ's Unique Mediation
970 "Mary's function as mother of men in no way obscures or diminishes
this unique mediation of Christ, but rather shows its power ...." (p.
Basic to Christian Worship is Devotion to Mary;
971 "All generations will call me blessed": "The Church's devotion to the Blessed Virgin is intrinsic to Christian worship." The
Church rightly honors "the Blessed Virgin with special devotion. From
the most ancient times the Blessed Virgin has been honored with the
title of 'Mother of God,' to whose protection the faithful fly in all their dangers and needs. ...
This very special devotion ... differs essentially from the adoration
which is given to the incarnate Word and equally to the Father and the
Holy Spirit, and greatly fosters this adoration." The liturgical feasts
dedicated to the Mother of God and Marian prayer, such as the rosary, an "epitome of the whole Gospel," express this devotion to the Virgin Mary. (p. 253)
The Faithful go to Mary in their
Times of Dangers and Needs;
The Epitome of the Whole Gospel,
the Rosary, Expresses Devotion to Mary
The Church Venerates Mary
972 After speaking of the Church, her origin, mission, and destiny, we can find no better way to conclude than by looking to Mary.
In her we contemplate what the Church already is in her mystery on her
own "pilgrimage of faith," and what she will be in the homeland at the
end of her journey. There, "in the glory of the Most Holy and Undivided
Trinity," "in the communion of all the saints," the Church is awaited by the one she venerates as Mother of her Lord and as her own mother. (p. 253).
Mary Cooperated with Everything
973 By pronouncing her "fiat" at the Annunciation and giving her consent to the Incarnation, Mary was already collaborating with the whole work her Son was to accomplish. She is mother wherever he is Savior and head of the Mystical Body. (p. 254)
Mary Now Shares in the Glory
974 The Most Blessed Virgin Mary, when the course of her earthly life
was completed, was taken up body and soul into the glory of heaven,
where she already shares in the glory of her Son's Resurrection,
anticipating the resurrection of all members of his Body. (p. 254)
of her Son's Resurrection
Mary is Mother of the Church and Exercises
975 "We believe that the Holy Mother of God, the new Eve, Mother of the Church, continues in heaven to exercise her maternal role on behalf of the members of Christ." (p. 254)
Her Maternal Role From Heaven
The Church in Paradise is Centered
1053 "We believe that the multitude of those gathered around Jesus and Mary in Paradise forms the Church of heaven, ..." (p. 274)
Around Jesus and Mary
The Prayers and Good Works of Mary and the Saints
1477 "This treasury includes as well the prayers and good works of
the Blessed Virgin Mary. They are truly immense, unfathomable, and even
pristine in their value before God. In the treasury, too, are the
prayers and good works of all the saints, all those who have followed in
the footsteps of Christ the Lord and by his grace have made their lives
holy and carried out the mission the Father entrusted to them. In this
way they attained their own salvation and at the same time cooperated in
saving their brothers in the unity of the Mystical Body." (p. 371)
Attained their own Salvation and
Cooperated in the Saving of Others
The Catholic Mary is all-holy, the Example of Holiness

and the Model of the Church
To Improperly use Mary's Name
2146 The second commandment forbids the abuse of God's name, i.e., every improper use of the names of God, Jesus Christ, but also of the Virgin Mary and all the saints. (p. 519)
is a Violation of the Second Commandment
Which Forbids the Abuse of God's Name
Mary is Praised Because She Knew the
2675 ... In countless hymns and antiphons expressing this prayer, two
movements usually alternate with one another: the first "magnifies" the
Lord for the "great things" he did for his lowly servant and through
her for all human beings; the second entrusts the supplications and
praises of the children of God to the Mother of Jesus, because she now
knows the humanity which, in her, the Son of God espoused. (pp. 642, 643)
Humanity Which Jesus Espoused
Catholics Pray To Mary, the Ark of the Covenant;
2676 This twofold movement of prayer to Mary has found a privileged expression in the Ave Maria: .... Mary, in whom the Lord himself has just made his dwelling, is the daughter of Zion in person, the ark of the covenant, the place where the glory of the Lord dwells. She is "the dwelling of God ... with men." Full
of grace, Mary is wholly given over to him who has come to dwell in her
and whom she is about to give to the world. (p. 643)
Mary is the Dwelling of God With Men
We Can Entrust our Cares and Petitions to Mary;
2677 ... Because she gives us Jesus, her son, Mary is Mother of God and our mother: we can entrust all our cares and petitions to her: she prays for us as she prayed for herself: "Let it be to me according to your word." By
entrusting ourselves to her prayer, we abandon ourselves to the will of
God together with her: "Thy will be done" .... By asking Mary to pray
for us, we acknowledge ourselves to be poor sinners and we address
ourselves to the "Mother of Mercy," the All-Holy One. We give ourselves over to her now, in the Today of our lives. And our trust broadens further, already at the present moment, to surrender "the hour of our death" wholly to her care. May she be there as she was at her son's death on the cross. May she welcome us as our mother at the hour of our passing to lead us to her son, Jesus, in paradise. (pp. 643, 644)
Mary is the Mother of Mercy, the All-Holy One;
We are to Surrender "the Hour of our Death"
Wholly to Her Care;
After Death [those who enter Paradise]
are Led to Jesus by Mary
Prayer To The Catholic Mary is Exalted;
2679 Mary is the perfect Orans (pray-er), a figure of the Church. When we pray to her,
we are adhering with her to the plan of the Father, who sends his Son
to save all men. Like the beloved disciple we welcome Jesus' mother into
our homes, for she has become the mother of all the living. We can pray with and to her. The prayer of the Church is sustained by the prayer of Mary and united with it in hope. (p. 644)
We can Pray With and To Mary
The Church Entrusts Supplications and Praises To Mary
2682 Because of Mary's singular cooperation with the action of the Holy
Spirit, the Church loves to pray in communion with the Virgin Mary, to
magnify with her the great things the Lord has done for her, and to entrust supplications and praises to her. (p. 644)

(Comment: If you never read the aforementioned official Catholic
teachings on Mary, like many, you might have thought the first 11 of the
12 points were describing the Lord Jesus.)
Let's Examine Those Points About Mary
1. One of the unique glories of God is declared in the following Scripture:
From a Biblical Perspective:
This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:22,23).
Only God is sinless, which includes Jesus, whereas all other
people have sinned. No exception is found in the Bible for Mary.
Furthermore, over 50 times God is declared to be the Holy One in
the Bible. Never is Mary identified this way; neither are we to pray to
Mary (nor any saint or angel), but only to the Heavenly Father and the
Lord Jesus, according to God's Word.
2. There is no shred of evidence in the Bible that Mary was resurrected bodily into Heaven.
3. According to the Book of Revelation, the Church in Paradise is
centered around the Heavenly Father and Jesus (Rev. 4:2-5:10), with no
mention of Mary, even in the slightest way.
4. There is no shred of evidence in the Bible that Mary was the cause of
her own salvation nor the whole human race. In no salvation message,
that is recorded in the Bible, is Mary mentioned by name or even
5. There is no shred of evidence in the Bible that Mary was redeemed at
the point of her conception. All evidence leads one to conclude that she
was in no way different from any other person who needs forgiveness and
6. There is no shred of evidence in the Bible that Mary is the ark of the covenant.
7. There is no shred of evidence in the Bible that Mary's name, when
improperly used, is a violation of the Second Commandment. (In fact, it
is really the Third Commandment that forbids the misuse of God's name.
The Second Commandment forbids the making of and bowing before images.
See Ex. 20:4-7.) To include Mary, or any other human, as a misuse of
God's name is to lower God to a mere human level.
8. The gospel, which is the plan of salvation, doesn't mention Mary in the slightest way:
Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I
preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your
stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I
preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I
received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for
our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was
raised on the third day according to the Scriptures (1 Cor. 15:1-4).
9. In the Bible, the Advocate and Mediator is Jesus (1 John 2:1; 1 Tim. 2:5) and the Helper is the Lord (Heb. 13:6), with no mention of Mary being any of these; neither is she Benefactress.
10. All through the New Testament Jesus is called life (Jn. 14:6; 8:12; 6:35; 1 John 5;12; etc.) There is no mention in the Bible of Mary being life.
11. Without a doubt, Christian worship has nothing to do, even in the
slightest way, with devotion to Mary. Please see John 4:23,24.
12. There is no mention in the Bible of Mary being venerated, called
Mother of God, Mother of mercies, ever-virgin, Queen of Heaven, the new
Eve, the daughter of Sion or co-operating in the Savior's work. (The
only Queen of Heaven, mentioned in the Bible, was a pagan, female
goddess that the Israelites got in trouble with God over. See Jer.
13. Clearly, the commandment in the Bible referring to the misuse of
God's name has nothing to do with Mary and it is idolatrous to teach it
does. Read it for yourself:
You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name. (Exo 20:7)
NOTE: The real "second commandment," which has been changed in the Catholic Baltimore Catechism and taught to children, excludes the real second commandment in the Bible!
You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them
or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing
the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth
generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand
generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. (Exo 20:4-6)
Catholic Deception Through a Blatant Misuse
Catholic apologists try to make an analogy between Bathsheba and Solomon
for their mythical Mary Queen of heaven and the Lord Jesus, who grants
Mary's requests. They do that with Bathsheba (whom they liken to Mary
because she was the mother of Solomon) and King Solomon (whom they liken
to Jesus). They focus on 1 Kings 2:19,20 and ignore the scriptures
of Scripture to Teach Mariology
When Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him for
Adonijah, the king stood up to meet her, bowed down to her and sat down
on his throne. He had a throne brought for the king's mother, and she sat down at his right hand. "I have one small request to make of you," she said. "Do not refuse me." The king replied, "Make it, my mother; I will not refuse you." (1 Ki 2:19,20)
Solomon Did Refuse Bathsheba's Request
All anyone has to do is to read the context -- the next 5 verses (1
Kings 2:21-25) which show what Bathsheba asked her son, Solomon, for and
what happened. The whole truth is, not only was
Bathsheba's request for Adonijah not granted, but Adonijah, who had gone
to Bathsheba to ask Solomon for the request, was put to death over it
-- the EXTREME opposite of the Catholic implication and their Mariology teaching -- remember that!
Apparently, the magisterium of the Catholic Church is hoping that their
following will NOT check up on this proof text argument for their
The context of scripture comes to our rescue again by revealing the
whole truth of the matter. Not only does it expose that limp Catholic
Mariology argument of 1 Kings 2:19,20 as empty and deceitful, it
further reveals the inability of the magisterium of the Catholic Church
to accurately and honestly teach God's truth to their own trusting 1.3
billion followers. Instead of the truth, the Catholic leaders prefer a massive contradiction, which has led to idolatry and a false plan of salvation centering around Mary.
Even if one never read the context of 1 Kings 2:19,20, the most
obvious glaring DEATH BLOW to Catholic Mariology and their make-believe
sinless sovereign Queen of heaven is the bible truth showing Mary is not
the Queen of heaven AND only the Father and Jesus are sitting on the
throne reigning over the universe (Mk. 16:19; Lk. 22:69; Acts 7:55,56; Rom. 8:34; Heb. 8:1; 12:2; etc.). Catholicism
removed the Father from the throne and replaced God himself with their
mythical Mary mariology, which is glaring IDOLATRY AND HERESY.
BTW, the other scripture misused by Catholics for their Queen of Heaven
teaching is Rev. 12:1,2 and the woman clothed with the sun. Such is
symbolic of Israel and that same woman gets eagles wings and flies off into the desert (Rev. 12:14).
Catholicism has nothing from God's word
for their Mary on the throne teaching. Do NOT be deceived by ANY
Catholic argument for their disctinctives. Catholicism is NOT the
message of the New Testament and Christians should be helping the 1.3 billion Catholics come to biblical salvation with truths like these.
The True Plan Of Salvation
The gospel of Jesus Christ is concisely stated in the Bible as repentance
towards God and faith in Christ Jesus (Acts 20:21). We are to produce
fruit in keeping with repentance (Matt. 3:8) and prove our repentance by
our deeds (Acts 26:20). To "repent" means to turn from your evil ways
(Matt. 12:41 cf. Jonah 3:10). Every tree that does not bring forth good
fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire (Matt. 3:10; 7:19). The
Lord Jesus also taught the road to life is "hard" and only a "few" will
find it (Matt. 7:13,14, NKJV).
The Lord declared there that there are
ONLY 2 gates, 2 roads, 2 groups of people and 2 eternal destinies. So
don't follow the crowd, since they are on their way to eternal fire,
even though they might not know it.
Moreover, many get saved, but afterwards fall away (Lk. 8:13; Jn. 6:66; 1
Tim. 1:19; etc.). In other words, after initial salvation we must
endure to the "end" to enter the kingdom of God and escape the lake of
fire (Matt. 10:22; Heb. 3:14; Rev. 2:10,11).
comes to the repentant the moment such believe on Jesus for salvation
(Jn. 3:16; 6:47; 1 Jn. 5:12,13), but there is another important aspect
of eternal life that many are totally unaware of in our day because of a
different false teaching which is commonly called "once saved, always
saved." According to true, Biblical, grace teaching, eternal life is
also a HOPE (Titus 3:7), yet to be REAPED (Gal. 6:8,9) in the AGE TO
COME (Mk. 10:30) for only the ones who PERSIST IN DOING GOOD (Rom. 2:7)
and DO NOT GROW WEARY AND GIVE UP (Gal. 6:9).
Also, remember this: If a saved person sows to please his sinful nature
he'll die spiritually (Rom. 8:13; Gal. 6:8,9). The prodigal is a clear
example of this (Lk. 15:24,32). The end result of sin is spiritual death.
DO NOT BE DECEIVED by the "once saved, always saved" teachers (James
1:14-16). We must continue to believe (TRUST) on Jesus for our soul's
salvation to enter the Kingdom of God. Jesus described his "sheep" as
his "followers" (John 10:27). James stated that faith without works is
"dead" (James 2:17).
Jesus vs Mariolatry
In conclusion, the Jesus of our present hour is not a baby that is
laying in a manger or an infant that needs to be held in his mother's
arms. He is an adult who successfully destroyed the devil's work (1 John
3:8). He is the resurrected "Lord of glory" (1 Cor. 2:8), before whom
every knee will bow and every tongue confess that he is Lord (Phil.
2:9-11). Jesus has the ONLY name in which salvation is
found (Acts 4:12), is the ONLY mediator between God and man (1 Tim.
2:5) and is the judge of the living and the dead (Acts 10:42; 2 Tim.
4:1; 1 Pet. 4:5).
We are advised in
Scripture to go directly to Him for forgiveness and to TRUST in Him
alone for our soul's salvation without any Mariolatry involved. To trust
in or have confidence in the fabricated and mythical Catholic Mary and Mariolatry taught in the Catechism of the Catholic Church will prove to be spiritually fatal!
