These images from Church of Portobelo in Panama expose the bondage of idolatry.
Faithful Roman Catholic pilgrims crawl on their knees, to face “El Cristo Negro” inside this Roman Catholic Church in Portobelo in Panama. The small statues of the false Messiah are black like ashes.
If these Roman Catholics were willing to obey the Bible, they would never have remained in such bondage. The Holy Spirit would have come and set them free.
Through history, people who have renounced the Papacy, have been badly persecuted. In hundreds of thousands, they were martyred. Beaten and killed by the religious people who refused to obey the truth.
“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, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Here are some more pictures:
They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands.
They say to wood, ‘You are my father,’ and to stone, ‘You gave me birth.’ They have turned their backs to me and not their faces; yet when they are in trouble, they say, ‘Come and save us!’
As they drank the wine, they praised the gods of gold and silver, of bronze, iron, wood and stone.
The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk.
1 Corinthians 12:2
You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols…..
The “Jesus” they crawled towards is not “Lord of Heaven”. May all of them one day scrap their wooden idols, and enjoy carrying the true Messiah inside their hearts. Amen.
