The grotto in the city of Bethlehem is the place where Christians believe Virgin Mary gave birth to Jesus.

My comment:

It is amazing that the Roman Catholic Bishop of Jerusalem offer incense to an idol of claimed to be “infant Jesus”.

Could it be, that the Catholic copy of “Jesus” never grew up?

  1. good molly News that matters , i read your blog , this a nice blog and greatly. Great for me. bulk Norwegian view on Israel and norway content. i will visit to read and review your site.

  2. This isn’t worship in the sense of adoration. You are seriously confused. Worship in the sense of adoration is offering sacrifice. Neither prayer nor offering of incense (which is a symbol of prayer) is worship in the sense of adoration. Prayer is communication, not worship in the sense of adoration. Offering incense is not adoration. This is simply a symbolic act of recollection that God became man for us, an imitation of one of the three kings who brought incense to the child Jesus. Christians adore God through the sacrifice of the cross, which is re-enacted in an unbloody manner in the offering of the Eucharistic sacrifice, the Mass.

    1. Very intelligent and informed post, Mr. Greenwell. It’s unbelievable how Catholics are accused of having “idols” in their churches. They are images, not idols. Idols are images of pagan or false gods. Images representing Jesus as an infant are portrayed to remind of us His birth in Bethelem. God is not against images. He Himself commanded that two images of cherubim be placed on top of the Ark of the Covenant in Exodus chapter 25. Solomon’s temple was full of golden images of winged cherubim, oxen, lions and flowers, all with God’s approval. It’s in 1 Kings chapters 6 and 7 in the Bible. Those images were put there to represent the celestial realm.

      1. Manny,

        You said: They are images, not idols. Idols are images of pagan or false gods.

        My comment: Do you not kiss the corpses of the dead? Do you not have disgusting pieces of dead flesh encased in glass, where you’ve prayed to it? Does the catholic people not pray to a sinner who they call “holy?” Do you not idolize Mary when she was a sinner like us all, whom you call the “queen of heaven?” What you serve is pagan and demonic, yet you are too blind to see it.

        Isaiah 44:6-20 Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: “I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god. Who is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and set it before me, since I appointed an ancient people. Let them declare what is to come, and what will happen. Fear not, nor be afraid; have I not told you from of old and declared it? And you are my witnesses! Is there a God besides me? There is no Rock; I know not any.” All who fashion idols are nothing, and the things they delight in do not profit. Their witnesses neither see nor know, that they may be put to shame. Who fashions a god or casts an idol that is profitable for nothing? …
