The Bible is absolutely clear that we are to worship God alone. The only instances of anyone other than God receiving worship in the Bible are false gods, which are Satan and his demons. All follow...
No, it is not biblical. And to set things straight, Catholics do not worship Mary and the saints. The confusion is understandable - not knowing what "worship" is. And not defining what "worship" is. If "worship" means bowing to an another person, then Yes, Catholics are idolaters. If "worship" means kneeling in front of another person, then Yes, Catholics are idolaters. If "worship" means praising another person for what they did, then Yes, Catholics are idolaters. But then we should think again because we bow to our karate instructors, knights kneel before kings, and we praise our children when they get good grades. ------------------------------------------- What is "worship"? It is the offering of sacrifice to a deity. Let me make this crystal clear, Catholics only offers sacrifices to God, not to anyone else.
