Can you tell where the Roman Catholic Jesus is in these pictures? See that little white circle in the middle of the sunbursts? That is a cracker. Catholics call it Jesus or the "holy" Eucharist. They eat their Jesus. But before they eat him, at times they bow down in front of this gold thing that holds their Jesus and worship him (one former nun who became a Christian testified that she would spend hours before "the host" that little cracker that the Romish priest supposedly changed into the Lord Jesus Christ (which blasphemy and heresy did not, and does not, happen.)) . The gold thing is called a monstrance. Sometimes the monstrance is paraded through the street with their Jesus (idol) in it and "adored" in their solemn processions. You see, their Jesus can't walk. He has to be borne about by men. THIS is the Roman Catholic Jesus that we write about here at Jesus is Lord--he is plainly not the Jesus of the Authorized Version of the Bible.
You don't believe that they actually worship and "adore" this thing called the Eucharist? Look at what pope John Paul II (a.k.a. Karol Joseph Wojtyla--his real name) said about the Eucharist in his 1980 Encyclical Letter on the Mystery and Worship of the Eucharist--"Adoration of Christ in this Sacrament of love must also find expression in various forms of Eucharistic devotion: personal prayer before the Blessed Sacrament [the Eucharist], hours of adoration, periods of exposition - short, prolonged and annual (Forty Hours) - Eucharistic benediction, Eucharistic processions, Eucharistic Congresses."The mass is the center of Catholicism and the Eucharist (that little round wafer above) is the center of the mass."...[E]ucharistic worship is the center and goal of all sacramental life."
--Karol Wojtyla, aka pope John Paul II
DOMINICAE CENAE ON THE MYSTERY AND WORSHIP OF THE EUCHARIST February 24, 1980
The Eucharist has been referred to as the Catholic "wafer god". I think that is an appropriate name for it. Without eating their Jesus, the Eucharist, Catholics believe they can't go to heaven. Their Jesus, the Eucharist, is also called "The Sacrifice" and "The Victim" (see above encyclical for examples). You see, they don't believe that the work of Jesus Christ was FINISHED on the cross--He is supposed to be a perpetual "victim" (what an horrible, blasphemous name they have conceived of for our precious Lord) always getting sacrificed over and over again. Dying over and over and over.
That's why you continually see them with dead Jesus' on crosses in their churches and homes--just hanging there, dead. My Jesus is not the "Eternal Victim", He is the King of kings and Lord of lords! The Bible teaches that his ONE time sacrifice is FINISHED, completed, over. The Lord Jesus Christ is back in heaven where He came from waiting on his enemies to be made his footstool. The Eucharist is just another man-made tradition.
What else did Mr. Wojtyla say?"The encouragement and deepening of the Eucharistic [cracker] worship are proofs of that authentic renewal...Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love..."
Many Catholics say that I don't understand Catholicism BUT NOT ONE will deny that they consider that cracker Jesus! NOT ONE WILL DENY that they fall down in front of images like this as well as statues, relics, paintings, and other images. NOT ONE will say that the ONE TIME sacrifice of Jesus Christ is enough to save your soul. I have told no lies on the Catholic religion on this site and I have no misunderstanding. Just go to some of their websites--you'll see what I'm saying is true. Get into a conversation with one and ask them about these things--you'll see they're true. Compare their encyclicals, decretals, and catechism to the Bible (the reading of which Rome prohibited) and see if you don't find contradictory documents. You don't have to take my word for it.
Catholics tell me that "the Catholic Church is the only Church that was given the authority to interpret sacred scripture and to teach on matters of faith and morals without error." Mmm, this is a pretty big claim. I have some questions for you, gentle reader:
 Look at the picture above one more time. Would you call that Eucharist cracker an image? Let me help you. An image is, according to Webster's,im-age (im'ij) n. an imitation or representation of a person or thing, drawn, painted, photographed, etc.; esp., a statue; a sculpted figure used as an idol.
The person is Jesus, the idol is the Eucharist cracker and surrounding monstrance. "But," a Catholic would say to me, "we don't worship idols, we worship Jesus." Well, let's look at Webster's again for the definition of an idol:i-dol (i'dl) n. an image of a god, used as an object or instrument of worship. [Didn't Mr. Wojtyla say to worship the Eucharist?]; any object of ardent or excessive devotion or admiration [Didn't Mr. Wojtyla say, "Eucharistic DEVOTION"?]
I like the following definition best which is also found in Webster's New World Dictionary (1982):
 Do you think that images like this monstrance and Eucharist are what Moses was warning about when he said:Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee. (Deuteronomy 4:23)
 The above passage says that God had forbidden the people to make a graven image. Where is this in the Bible? Maybe Exodus 20:4-5?Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.
 What you just read was the SECOND of the ten commandments. Is it any wonder why the Catholic religion deletes it when proponing the ten commandments "in the traditional way they are enumerated by Catholics" (quote from "Growing in Christian Morality" by Julia Ahlers, Barbara Allaire, and Carl Koch, page 40. It has both nihil obstat and imprimatur which are official declarations that a book or pamphlet is free of Catholic doctrinal error.)? Is it not apparent to you? (This article that you are now reading does not even go into the numerous statues of Mary, saints, etc. that are found in Catholic churches and grottos, etc. and are also purchased and venerated by Roman Catholics all over the world.)
God HATES images. ANY KIND OF IMAGE:"Neither shalt thou set thee up any image; which the LORD thy GOD hateth." -Deut. 16:22
A Catholic heathen wrote this in response to the article you're reading:
"THE HOST [eucharist cracker] IS NOT AN IMAGE OF GOD,
BUT GOD HIMSELF!!!!!!!!"
Enough said right there. He's telling the world that a cracker is able to contain God
and that the God of the universe will enter it at the COMMAND of a Romish priest.
Blasphemy, heresy, idolatry.
The Catholic religion is no more Christian than any other cult. David Koresh, Jehovah's Witness, Mormonism, Catholicism--no difference. Invariably someone will tell me that I hate Catholics. "Anti-Catholic" is the term they are using now. But judge for yourself: is telling the truth hate? Is telling a child, "2+2=4 not 7" hate? Nay, rather it is correction so that the person will have a right understanding. The Roman Catholic sacramental system of man-made traditions guarantees nothing but hellfire.
