    St Matthew5:22 But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment, and whoever says to his brother, ‘Raqa,’ will be answerable to the Sanhedrin, and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ will be liable to fiery Gehenna

    Which is suppose to reprove what post?

    Is that image from you? I'd like to use it. Vivid warning of a sobering reality.

    Imagine there's no heaven, revised version:

    Imagine there's no heaven
    It's easy if you lie
    In hell below us
    Wishing they could die
    Imagine all the people damned by what I say

    Imagine there's no countries
    Following one not true
    None else to live or die for
    The devil's nothing new
    Imagine all the people whose punishment does not cease

    You may say I'm a demon
    But I'm not the only one
    We hope some day you'll join us
    That the devil's will be done.

    And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (Revelation 13:12)

    And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. (Revelation 14:11)

    And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. (Revelation 20:7-9)

    And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. (Revelation 20:10)

    Perhaps more to be fearfully accountable for (Lord have mercy), for the reply count does not tell how much is said - but are those your stats?

    Whatever? Really? You keep praying to Mary for salvation - good luck with that! I'll pray to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for my Salvation.

    Indeed, seeing as the Holy Spirit inspired approx. 200 prayers to Heaven in Scripture but none ([]) addressed to anyone but the Lord, who also is the only one shown able to hear all such and respond to them, as is position, power and prerogative.

    Faced with trying to justify why the Holy Spirit would not include even one prayer by a believer to anyone else is Heaven when He so abundantly records prayers, yet does record pagans praying to created beings, Caths resort to extrapolating this from praying for each other in the earthly realm, but which ignores the manifest divisions.

    They also seem top imagine that clarifying that Mary does everything thru the Lord Jesus somehow justifies teaching what the Spirit of Christ never does, but warns us not to think of mortals above that which is written. (1Co. 4:6)

    And rejecting this, and the very tempered manner in which the Holy Spirit describes mortals, Catholic have created a Mary who is far beyond what it written of her or of any created being. Such as that that "No one achieves salvation except through you...No one receives grace except through you...no one obtains mercy except through you." "Thou are all-powerful in saving sinners.." "if you go to God through Mary, your work will become Mary's work, and consequently will be most noble and most worthy of God." “sometimes salvation is quicker if we remember Mary's name then if we invoked the name of the Lord Jesus.." "that one alone is solicitous for us in Heaven. ".. who "alone art truly loving and solicitous for our welfare." "when she acts, it is also He who acts;...and through her alone does He dispense His favours and His gifts" "the greatness of the power which she wields over one who is God cannot be conceived..." "He is a debtor to you." "through Whom the Holy Trinity is sanctified..." "the greatness of the power which she wields over one who is God cannot be conceived...

    "The union between the Immaculata and the Holy Spirit is so inexpressible, yet so perfect, that the Holy Spirit acts only by the Most Blessed Virgin, his Spouse. This is why she is the mediatrix of all graces given by the Holy Spirit. And since every grace is a gift of God the Father through the Son and by the Holy Spirit, it follows that there is no grace which Mary cannot dispose of as her own, which is not given to her for this purpose." — Manteau-Bonamy, Immaculate Conception, 91; F.X. Durrwell, The Holy Spirit of God (Cincinnati: Servant Books, 2006), 183-185.

    No one achieves salvation except through you...No one receives grace except through you...no one obtains mercy except through you."

    "Thou are all-powerful in saving sinners.." "the greatest consolation that I receive from God... the light of my soul when it is enveloped in darkness...the hope of my salvation" ( St. Germanus (638-730), first bishop of Cyzicus, patriarch of Constantinople, various works; http://campus.udayton.edu/mary/prayers/SaintsPrayers2.htm)

    "In "Glories of Mary" by Liguori, whose writings were declared free from anything meriting censure by Pope Gregory XVI (1839) in the bull of his canonization, he teaches,

    Beware, chosen soul, of thinking that it is more perfect to direct your work and intention straight to Jesus or straight to God. Without Mary, your work and your intention will be of little value. But if you go to God through Mary, your work will become Mary's work, and consequently will be most noble and most worthy of God. - THE SECRET OF MARY, St. Louis de Montfort; http://www.ewtn.com/library/Montfort/SECRET.HTM

    According to Eadmer (A.D. 1060–1124), an English monk and student of Anselm, “sometimes salvation is quicker if we remember Mary's name then if we invoked the name of the Lord Jesus...[who] does not at once, answer anyone who invokes him, but only does so after just judgment. But if the name of his mother Mary is invoked, her merits intercede so that he is answered even if the merits of him who invoked her do not deserve it.” Through her “the elements are renewed, the netherworld is healed, the demons are trodden underfoot, men are saved and angels are restored.” — Andrew Taylor, “Three medieval manuscripts and their readers,” University of Pennsylvania press; page 173

    And where can we find an advocate who is more earnest in the affair of our salvation, or who loves us more than Mary? "We acknowledge," says Saint Augustine of her, "that one alone is solicitous for us in Heaven. "...in order that our Lord may pardon us our sins, help us with His grace, free us from dangers, and relieve us in our wants, says, addressing in the words of an anc
