Links regarding Mary and the Saints

MARY (& the Saints)

"The Bible tells us to worship only the Lord your God, but Catholics worship Mary, saints, and the angels!"

Besides the number of Marian doctrines which evangelicals consider "unbiblical", there is also the charge that Catholics pray to Mary and the Saints and have thus effectively replaced God. Protestantism seems to separate the heavens and the earth. They don't think that the Body of Christ includes especially those who have already gone before us in Christ. The controversies over the Marian doctrines also link to controversies on the interpretation of Scripture as well as the "sufficiency" and "perspecuity" (clearness) of Scriptures.
