Does this monstrance represent God? How very fitting to call this thing that because it IS a monstrous thing that robs God’s glory. Does God desire for anyone to bow to anything crafted by human hands?
Does the One True God who is Spirit and Truth reside in this representation? Did Jesus or any of the apostles prescribe that we craft such a thing to bow to?
Is it okay to bow to this sun looking abomination?
Do not forget John 3:16,
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
The main focus is believing in the Son, nothing extra like veneration of icons and representations of saints and Mary.
How far Catholicism has fused idolatry with Christianity that Christianity is reduced to the veneration of representations, created things rather than the Creator.
“All the nations have drunk the wine of the passion of her immorality. The kings of the earth were immoral with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown wealthy through the extravagance of her luxury.” Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins or contract any of her plagues. For her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.”
If you are reading this post and you are Catholic, and if you truly love Jesus, the One who died for your sins, heed His warning.
