The Rosary: An Invention of Fools Fooling Other Fools
Many people are highly educated and yet they pray the Rosary. Did they know its history? Have they even questioned how it came to be? The truth is, it takes a fool to fool another fool. Once again, the concept of “veiled eyes” or “mind blinded by the god of this world” that the Bible talks about is proven true. The Rosary is an invention of fools fooling other fools, and yet they don’t know it!
A sacred item for Catholics but at the same time a commercial commodity, the Rosary is used by almost all devout Catholics, from the poorest of the poor to the richest pope in the history of the Roman Catholic Church. Here’s how the Modern Catholic Dictionary defines the rosary and talks about many other rosaries in different names, allowing for more inventions as recommended by the popes.
Obvious features of the rosary are: 1) Repetition of ready-made prayers, which is why there is counting, 2) Veneration of Mary, and 3) Introduction of the concept, “Blessed Mother of God.”
If we base our belief on the definition written in the Modern Catholic Dictionary, we must first believe that there is a "mother of God" to whom devotional prayer is said through the rosary.“Mother” in the Bible means “the origin.”
The term, "mother of God" will mean that Mary is the mother of all gods or the origin from where all gods came from! What an atrocious lie invented by the Roman Catholic Church!
The belief that Mary is the "mother of God" did not come from Christ or from the Apostles! It is a doctrine invented in the year 431 by the Council of Ephesus, 400 years after the ascension of Christ, 300 years after the death of the apostles, the very time foretold by the apostles when heresies and doctrines of devils will abound.

The God of the Bible has declared that he is first being and with the last generation!
If God has a mother, He cannot be the first being! The inspired song of Moses that will be sung even unto eternity states that God is from everlasting and unto everlasting!
Mother of God is different from “Mother of my Lord.”Indeed, the term "mother of God" is a disgrace to Mary, and an insult and blasphemy to God! Specifically,Mary was called by her kin, Elisabeth, as "the mother of my Lord".
The word "Lord" is not always used to denote God but respect as in the case of Sarah. She called Abraham her lord as respect to him.
Employers of Christians are also called "lords".
The Greek word used in this verse is κύριος (kurios) that means "Lord".
That which was made Lord by God the Father, is the human person of the Son of God, which at the time of Elisabeth's salutation was in the womb of Mary.
In the face of this truth, the intent of the use of the rosary falls!
Furthermore, the Lord Jesus Christ prohibits Christians to pray repetitiously.More so, counting them as though numbers would matter.
When Jesus entrusted the care of Her mother to the beloved disciple John, He said -
Note that He did not call Mary "mother" but "woman.” The same thing happened in Cana of Galilee.
Throughout His earthly ministry, the Lord Jesus practicing His Lordship over Christians, never called Mary his "mother.”
Mary never regarded this thing though as disrespect on her by her son, Jesus, because she knew who dwelled in that human body she bore.
The first century Christians did not use any form of rosary. Let us consider research on the history of the Rosary to understand it better.
As claimed by Louis De Montfort in the book, “The Secret of the Rosary” (17th Century),a Catholic priest allegedly “received a rosary from the Blessed Virgin.” The Rosary allegedly was given to the Church by Dominic who received it from the Blessed Virgin.However, as sources point out, this claim is dubious.
Montfort writes in his book that the rosary is made up of mental prayer and vocal prayer, with beads assisting memory and completion. Accordingly, it has been in use since the time of Jesus but it was in the year 1214 that the “Holy Mother Church” received it in its present form.
How do we know these are lies? Nothing is said in the Bible about Mary appearing again and again in visions, much more arrogating unto herself some power and therefore promising salvation through a bead of repetitions called rosary (Angelic Psalter).
We’ve seen how just a simple bean counter is tied to repeated prayers, is tied to venerating Mary who is as human as people are, is tied to a Dominican priest whose biography does not even accommodate that story as true. Yet a book (Montfort’s in the 17th Century) is written about how that bean counter is passed on to Dominic. A Dominican priest named Alanus claims to have received the Blessed Mother's "15 Promises" through Jesus, based on the use of the Rosary, but the fact is that there are 250 years gap between Alanus and Dominic. With those supposed 15 promises “received by Alanus,” the belief on the Rosary gets more glue. Finally, Cardinal Patrick J. Hayes, the then Archbishop of New York orders the printing of those 15 so-called mysteries, with the note that one is free to believe or not.Not to be outdone, Pope Pius XI declares that praying the Rosary is how salvation is obtained. Baloney of all baloneys! Is that how truth comes about?
Lies really do reinforce each other. They are jolly cousins, attesting to blinded minds that the Bible talks about.
On this score, I challenge all Catholic authorities! If they are sport enough to accept the truth, they should confess that the rosary is an invention of Catholic authorities.
The Rosary has no purpose other than to fool other fools.
