Why is Buddha venerated sleeping? A giant refused to bow down, but gave in.
Why is dozens of Popes venerated inside the crypt of the Vatican?
For the same reason, I presume?
Faithful Buddhists have to bow down before the idol. The Roman Catholics are idolaters, who bow down, pray to and worship dead popes.
The Bible is very clear, that people will die, be judged and sent to Hell if they bow down to created images, statues or whatever.
“You shall not make for yourself an image 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 parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.
People who do this hate God.
They hate corrections. They simply have been blinded by Satan. When they are punished by God for their filthy worship of idols, they curse God. They will never repent.
If you are a Roman Catholic, or a Buddhist, and read this, please keep in mind that I warned you.
The Bible says you deserve to die, and be sent to Hell. Only if you beg God for mercy, you will escape the burning fire. Cry out in the name of the Messiah. Only He can save you.
Jesus hates idol worshipers. But He loves all sinners who are willing to make a U-turn.
Please listen and repent.

Im a Buddhist and your info is purely wrong. The early buddhists never worshipped Buddha statues. Only after Buddhism passed Bactria, did it start the tradition of Buddhist imagery. And Buddhism is not bowing down to a statue of Buddha. We worship the Buddha as a veneration for bringing the Dharmma, our doctrine. The Buddha is not the so-called “God” nor is he a god.
