Big mistakes in the Churches

rio-statue-13.jpg

I have been invited numerous times to churches and have realized they were filled with graven images (pictures and statues). This angers God very much, just in the Bible, Christians are told over a 126 times that they are forbidden to make or use images of Saints or others in their worship!!! I still don't understand...

For example: (Ex 20:4) "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth:"

(Le 26:1) "Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up [any] image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I [am] the LORD your God"

Graven images is a topic of interest to me because while I was visiting a Catholic church, (Apparently Catholic churches contain the most statues and pictures more than other churches) I actually felt the Spirit, it truly was powerful and strong, statues were on all sides of me, behind me, in front of me, on my left and right. It was obvious others in this church were feeling the Spirit too!

 

Some were moaning and screaming in joy. Although once I left the church, I felt nomore the spirit, so it had left. I then realized the difference between the spirits from the statues and the spirit from God.

The spirit from the statues which I felt in the church would grab hold of your heart and squeeze until you do not know the difference between up or down, the spirit from God is more subtle but both your heart and mind are a part of it.

When I felt the spirit in the church, myr body was experiencing a high while my mind was overlooked, untouched (because there was 0 reasoning, all emotions, and we all know how emotions can mislead people...)

This clarified to me that I am not to chase the spirit that made me the highest, but rather the spirit that spoke to both my mind (reason, knowledge, logic) and then heart.

Isa 42:8 "I am the LORD, that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to graven images."

Lets take a look at what the Holy Quran says: "Ye serve instead of Allah only idols, and ye only invent a lie. Lo! those whom ye serve instead of Allah own no provision for you. So seek your provision from Allah, and serve Him, and give thanks unto Him, (for) unto Him ye will be brought back." {Holy Qur'an translation 29:17}

"And they set up (idols) as equal to Allah, to mislead (men) from the Path! Say: "Enjoy (your brief power)! But verily ye are making straightway for Hell!" {Holy Qur'an translation 14:30}

 

We are often warned in all the Scriptures sent by God , to avoid letting the body lead us astray and are encouraged to use our God given minds (I'm not saying Christians dont use there minds, im saying alote of people follow there emotions, and once they are attached to something, they turn their common sens switch off and become closed minded to every single proof put infront of them... just like a woman beaten by her husband but yet she always comes back because of her love, even thot he's not good for her). The use of the minds is promoted in both the Qur'an and the Bible over a 100 times each. Put aside youre emotions and attachements, and become critical, cause this might reveal you the truth...

In conclusion , the Spirit of the statues can be like a drug, leaving your mind intoxicated, this drug has captured many and has prompted them to put more graven images in their place of worship and even hang graven images against their chest to maintain this spiritual high...

God is in our hearts, just close you eyes and ask him for guidance, and he shall guide you inshallah (meaning hopefully by the Will of God)...
