"After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendor that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: 'Penance, Penance, Penance!'. And we saw in an immense light that is God: 'something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it' a Bishop dressed in White 'we had the impression that it was the Holy Father'. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God."

Why do people want to find something to worship..even the angels say don't worship me it is made clear that no person or thing created should be worshiped or bowed down to...in many places in the bible.
22:8 John "fell down to worship at the feet of the angel" and that in 22:9 the Angel says "Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers the prophets and of all who keep the words of this book. Worship God!"
Jesus said "Do not worship me, worship God", then doesn't the basic concept of Christianity go expressly againts the teachings of it's own mesiah?
Exactly... thats why the extremist Christians that are usually shown on tv are actually totally against what Jesus taught. ...the judging of others ...the selfish holding of extreme wealth ...condemning other people to hell ....statues/pictures/portraits/paintings/stain-glass of jesus angels etc and crosses ....all go against what the Bible and Jesus teach. Why do Catholics confess their sins to another man who is just as guilty of sin as them? Why do they worship Mary? Why is the Pope worshipped? Why does the Pope even exist? A "Pope" is nowhere to be found in the Bible. Why are there so many denominations?

Sad, really sad. Not necessary either. But I realize I live in a time where people will condemn me for my beliefs and faith. I'm strong enough to handle it, but I can't help but be sad for it.

I'm saddened when I see things like this. Some are just desperate to fill a hole in their lives. Others are just fakers taking advantage of them.

Isn't this more of a case of lack of data? When we see certain shape, outlines. Our brains "fill" in the reminder.
Humans have a tendancy to see the outline as a figure or a face. Like the face on mars, the outlines of jesus' alleged face on drain pipes, toast and birthmarks. This is no different.
