The Catholic Church has a dogma that “Mary” ascended into Heaven in body and soul. But in the Dormition Church in Jerusalem her body is still present.
The Roman Catholic Church is at best doctrinal chaos. While some Catholics believed that the miraculous and holy body of the “Mother of God” was kept in the crypt in the Dormition Church in Jerusalem, others claimed her body had ascended into Heaven. Sinless, just like her son.
Pope Pius XII sided with latter. As late as in 1950 Pius made a papal doctrine, that Catholic Mary was born without sin, lives a sinless life, was ever virgin, and ascended into Heaven in body and soul.
This new Papal dogma created a problem in Jerusalem. Because the Pope of Rome now sided with the Greek Orthodox Church, that for hundreds of years had claimed “Mary”s” empty tomb was at the foot of the Mount Of Olives, in the crypt of the Church of the Assumption.
The Pope rebuked the Roman Catholic who had taught that the miraculously kept holy body of the Catholic mother saint, was kept in the crypt in the Dormition Church in the Armenian Quarter in the Old city of Jerusalem.
It is simply impossible that both of these Churches tells the truth. Its more than likely that both of them lies.
Lets investigate, and take a look at the two official version, very different in deed.
First from the Greek Orthodox Church:
At the foot of the Mount of Olives lies the claimed tomb of the Virgin Mary; built over top is the Church of the Assumption. According to Catholic doctrine Mary was taken from here directly into heaven because she was sinless.
The pictures tells the story of an empty tomb.
Inside the the Dormition Church, the crypt hold a mummified body. Here is the official story:
The rotunda of the crypt recalls the Holy Sepulcher and the resurrection of Jesus.In its center, surrounded by six pillars, lies the statue of the blessed virgin, asleep. This is where, according to christian tradition, Mary lived and died after her son’s resurrection.
In the dome above the statue, the mosaic represents Jesus Christ surrounded by six women from the Old Testament: Eve, Miriam, Yael, Judith, Ruth and Esther. The dormition of Mary is pictured in the apse. The altars around the crypt are gifts from Hungary, Austria, the Ivory Coast, the USA, Brazil and Venezuela. In the front part of the crypt, there is the chapel of the Holy Spirit, which is also the chapel of the Blessed Sacrament. It is a place for prayer and contemplation.
The tomb is an empty stone bench. On the side facing the western entrance are three holes that were cut into the stone and allow the visitors to touch the inside of the tomb.
Source for this official story:
These two stories exposes a Church that can distribute lies without limits. The Bible says there was only one human being, that was able to live a sinless life. His name is Jesus. Both the Roman Catholic Church and the Greek Orthodox Church have based their theology on lies and falsehood.
The result of these deceptions, is that non-believers look up on “Christianity” as wickedness. They need to know that this has nothing to do with Jesus of the Bible. Jesus is a live, and He will judge people who spread this kind of Papal approved falsification of the gospel.
