Damnable idol of “Catholic Jesus” erected in Syria

They consulted Syria’s Greek Orthodox Patriarch John Yaziji. It was he who told them “Jesus would have done it.”

A huge Catholic idol has been errected on a mountain in Syria.

In the midst of a conflict rife with sectarianism, a giant bronze statue of Jesus has gone up on a the Syrian Cherubim mountain, apparently under cover of a truce among three factions in the country’s civil war.

The statue is 12.3 meters (40 feet) tall and stands on a base that brings its height to 32 meters (105 feet), organizers of the project estimate.

The project took eight years and was set back by the civil war that followed the March 2011 uprising against President Bashar Assad.

This statues can not save it self, it falls down. And Islamic forces might bow it to pieces.

Christians and other minorities are all targets in the conflict, and the statue’s safety is by no means guaranteed. It stands among villages where some fighters, linked to al-Qaida, have little sympathy for Christians.

Rebels and government forces occasionally agree to cease-fires to allow the movement of goods. They typically do not admit to having truces because that would tacitly acknowledge their enemies.
Smaller statues of Adam and Eve stand nearby.

The project began in 2005, to be an inspiration for Syria’s Christians. It was inspired by Rio de Janeiro’s towering Christ the Redeemer statue.

Patriarch Ignatius IV, the Lebanon-based head of the Greek Orthodox Church donated the land for the statue, according to church official Bishop Ghattas Hazim.

My comment:

There are no limits to lawlessness, when people mock God in the name of “Jesus”. The law is crystal clear.  Man shall not make any image, in the likeness of anything in Heaven above or on the Earth below.

God of the Bible has never permitted man to set up such idols.

The images of “Jesus” is Roman Catholic by nature.  The Bible do not explain how the Messiah looked.  No one knows if he was tall or short, the color of his skin nor the color of his dssseyes.

The Syria’s Greek Orthodox Patriarch John Yaziji is a blunt liar and a blasphemer,  when he says: “Jesus would have done it.” Jesus the Messiah never told anyone to make a painting of Him, or to erect statues of Him. It would be breaking the same Law of Moses, that Jesus gifted to the Jewish people and the World.

 Exodus 20:4

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;  you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

John 4:24
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

A false lawless copy-cat Messiah has guided the Greek Orthodox Patriarch, lead astray to follow demonic powers.  No doubt the Islamic forces agreed on a cease fire, to let the god-mockers set up their gross idol.

Do not follow these peoples example. God of the Bible has to be worshiped in spirit and in truth.  Do not involve your self in this kind of Catholic and Orthodox idolatry.

  1. About the colour of the Messiah we know he would be dark, because being a Palestine and Nazarene Jew.

    Strange enough there are many Christians who take Jesus also to be God. (Know that are not all the Christians.) We as non-trintairian christians also do not comprehend why in case Jesus would have been God, they still make images of him and why they use the symbol of the god of evil, Tamuz, as the mark of their religion (a.o. teh Cross by Catholics)

    All God fearing and God loving people should know that we only may honour One God and make no pictures of Him and certainly may not bow down before any statue or picture because that is an abomination in the eyes of the Only One God, Allah, The Elohim Hashem Jehovah.
