MYTH #16 Catholics are Idol worshipers and worship statues.

Catholics Worship God alone.

When someone in your family is not among the living you toss them in a hole or bury them with a grave marker so you know who they are maybe a picture so you remember them? Statues are used the same way. They are not worshiped.

God doesnt say we cant have statues, in fact he commanded some be built.
Exodus 25:18

Thou shalt make also two cherubims of beaten gold, on the two sides of the oracle.
Numbers 21:9

Moses therefore made a brazen serpent, and set it up for a sign: which when they that were bitten looked upon, they were healed.

Solomon had Statues in the Temple

1Kings 7:[27] And he made ten bases of brass, every base was four cubits in length, and four cubits in breadth, and three cubits high. [28] And the work itself of the bases, was intergraven: and there were gravings between the joinings. [29] And between the little crowns and the ledges were lions, and oxen, and cherubims: and in the joinings likewise above: and under the lions and oxen, as it were bands of brass hanging down.
God approved of the Temple, statues and all

1Kings 9:[3] And the Lord said to him: I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, which thou hast made before me: I have sanctified this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever, and my eyes and my heart shall be there always.
