who claim to be Christians, semi-worshipping or worshipping relics
should be something that's near 'Fornication against God'. The word
fornication is used as a metaphor for 'transgression'. God refers
to it as 'fornication' if a Christian worships or prays to anyone or
anything else than God.
So when you
see churches worshipping relics and statues, like the Catholic churches
do so much, praying to dead people and clinging to relics for good luck
and other nonsense, you know one thing for sure: you must not embrace
their ways, for only Satan will answer their prayers, so that they
believe it's God, and thus end up in hell.
From the ten commandments:
“You shall have no other gods before me.
not make for yourself a carved image, or 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 or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God,
visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and
the fourth generation of those who hate me,
but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
TI1 2: 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
