First of all, why do they have to be Biblical? Second of all, you do realize the Rosary is taken from the Bible? The mysteries deal with Biblical events, the Hail Mary is taken directly from the Bible, the Our Father is taken from the Bible… how much more “Biblical” do you want us to get?[/quote:2sxvayrx][/b:2sxvayrx]_________________
1 You should want to be biblical so that you aren’t in error!
2 The rosary is not biblically acceptable – I’m often accused of taking Scriptures out of context – Which is totally what you get if you think its biblical A -the Angel said “Hail Mary” then he says “you are full of grace” –
but you guys put these verses together as if its a prayer …. ridiculous !!!Sure Mary is Biblical as well as the Our Father, but Mary’s being an receptical for prayer and/or to pray to Isn’t
I think you should not “twist” Scriptures nor believe those that are telling you these foolish things[/quote:2sxvayrx]
1. This is a non sequitor. I asked why things had to be Biblical. You responded with an answer that has nothing to do with my question.
2. That is indeed what the angel says. What’s your problem?
3. Why can’t I ask Mary to pray for me? I can ask you, and you would probably be happy to. Yet I can’t ask someone who is perfected in righteousness, closer to God than you, me, or any other “living”* being? Why not?
God WANTS suuplications, intercession, prayers and thanksgivings offered, I am only listening to Him. You on the other hand, try to deny His greatest Saints even the slightest bit of respect.
*because actually, their souls are every bit alive, and while you have a wounded soul floundering the corrupt world and most likely sin, the Saints’ souls are perfect. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful. Why wouldn’t I ask the MOST righteous beings around to pray for me?
