In Santiago del Compostella you can venerate the bones of a claimed “saint” that surfaced from the sea.
Every year hundreds of thousands of Roman Catholics travel to Santiago del Compostella as pilgrims. They travel to Galicia in Spain to honor the remains of a man, the Vatican claim is James the Apostle. His feast is on 25th of July.
Lets also look at how Roman Catholics in Santiago de Compostella celebrate Easter, or a festival the locals have named: Semana Santa
No longer only Roman Catholics. This summer Reformed Christians in their thousands have returned home to “Rome”.
This is what a Roman Catholic blogger reports on the shrine in Santiago del Compostella.
“Legend has it that decapitated body of the martyred saint was washed ashore in Galicia. The place where it landed was illumined by a star, hence the name Compostella, which came from the Latin Campus Stellae, Field of the Star. The Cathedral of St. James was later on built on the site where his remains were found and the body was buried in a silver coffin beneath the main altar”.

This is recorded by wikipedia:
Decapitated in Jerusalem with a sword by Herod Agrippa himself, his body was taken up by angels, and sailed in a rudderless, unattended boat to Iria Flavia in Iberia, where a massive rock closed around his relics, which were later removed to Compostela.
Most scholars believe that James worked and died in Egypt. The Apostles most likely died during his mission in North Africa.
It is possible to carry bones across the seas in a ship. But that the “decapitated body of the martyred saint was washed ashore in Galicia” is simply too baloney.
People with a a little bit of knowledge of physics, knows what happens to “decapitated bodies” in the sea.
It is nevertheless remarkable stupidity, to believe that a decapitated corpse from the sea, can be identified.
Did the local priests in Galicia have the DNA-profile of James the Apostle?
It is sad that blunt lies and religious fraud is presented as something noble. But it is a complete disgrace that this kind of stuff is presented as “Christianity”.
False teachers who present this kind of religious morbidity as anything but fraud, shall face stern judgment.
The Words of Jesus explains about a eternal lake of fire, for all He can not acknowledge. Just read Matthew 7:21-23, and Matthew 25:41 onwards.
I pray for all deceived souls, that they will leave this kind of devilish Babylonian religious systems, and turn to the living God: Jesus the Messiah.
