Many great man (and women) were also highly favoured and even walked with God, e.g. In fact, God took Enoch – And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.(Genesis ) Then there is also Elijah who was also taken up into heaven.
Why do we need any other thing or person to get us to God? 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. Cease all prayer to Mary for she is only human and has passed on. Georgey, just because Jesus made that statement TO THE DISCIPLES (not the church)doesn’t means it is for us today.
Jesus meant that just like she was an earthly mother to Him, she would be an earthly mother to the disciples.
This is the facts: How many times is Mary mentioned in the bible order than relating to the birth and raising of Jesus? There are more references to King David and Abraham but no one prays to them.
God had favor by choosing Mary even though He could have chosen anyone else. I don’t remember Jesus or his disciples praying the rosary!! please dont pray to a man made statue i know you have read the 10 ten commandments–thou shall have no other GOD BEFORE ME.
The intercession of Mother Mary is very powerful as Jesus cannot neglect His mothers commands.
