Sorry cowboy but in this you are scoring one for the Catholics..Imo
Injecting whatever your ideas on Mary are.
Yes she and Joseph thought HE WAS WITH others that day..when they looked fir Him THAT day He was nit among them ..They went back.
And found Him doing Gods,business as stated..GOD wanted this..He allowed fir this .We don't know why..But structurally here you are wrong. Sorry
Ok on Gids,plan. I REPEAT
]Now here is some real conjecture for us.
Who were.these men in the temple??
We're they important for Jesus to meet??
We know of a few who might have been around then.
GAMALIEL, who was a great Jewish s leader later on.and one who did NOT persecute Christians.
Do you know his father's name?? It was SIMEON..coukd he b e the same Simeon who saw Jesus as a,baby
What about Joseph of Arimethea..might he have been there.
Everything in the bible has meaning.
And the meaning of this instance in time is NOT that Mary was a bad mother..nor Joseph a bad dad.
It is that GOD WANTED JESUS TO BE IN THE TEMPLE SHIWING HIS. KNOWLEDGE AND DOING HIS FATHERS WORK.
you don't have a clue as who was there or who was not. Gamaliel come on the scene 30 years or more LATER. SO DONT PROJECT. STICK WITH WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES.

NOR IS IT IMPORTANT.

MOTHERS HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO SAFEGUARD THEIR CHILDREN. AND THAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE. SHE LEFT HIM.AND TEHRE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT.

No she was just a highly favoured bad Mother. lol
"It is permissible, on Greek grammatical and linguistic grounds, to paraphrase kecharitomene as completely, perfectly, enduringly endowed with grace." (Blass and DeBrunner, Greek Grammar of the New Testament).
However, Luke 1:28 uses a special conjugated form of "charitoo." It uses "kecharitomene," while Ephesians 1:6 uses "echaritosen," which is a different form of the verb "charitoo." Echaritosen means "he graced" (or bestowed grace). Echaritosen signifies a momentary action, an action brought to pass (Blass and DeBrunner, Greek Grammar of the New Testament, p. 166). Whereas, Kecharitomene, the perfect passive participle, shows a completeness with a permanent result. Kecharitomene denotes continuance of a completed action (H. W. Smyth, Greek Grammar [Harvard Univ Press, 1968], p. 108-109, sec 1852:b; also Blass and DeBrunner, p. 175).
Preston is an idiot but have fun arguing with him and the rest of these snakes. Protestants in here go to great lengths to smear Mary I guess that is there way of interpeting she shall be called blessed. They will continue to lie that the church teaches she did not need a saviour no matter how many times you show them its not the case. You cannot teach the blind who willfully lie.
We don't payy mich attention to someone who doesn't even know the difference between "there" and "their".

No, God never told Adam if he ate from the tree that every future generation of his children would be cursed. He was told that he would die. Which, in any case, turned out to be false anyway.
And if "God" is omniscient, or even omnipresent, why didn't "He" stop the snake?

It just doesn't add up.

Oh wait, yes it does - it adds up to being the imagination of men or reference to some sort of symbolic meaning. I state that, because as history shows, as humans developed speech from grunting, symbolism also developed in parallel.
- We see symbols being used in some of the latger cultures throughout the world - by comparing hieroglyphs (Mayan, Aztec, Incan, Egyptian, Hindus, as well as Hopi).

All over the world - pre-Christianity, pre-Judaism.

Move past the words and understand their meanings.

What do you suppose "I don't believe in your deity" means?
I guess to that means I am a bigot.
You should really purchase a dictionary. If you do look up the word "bigot".
It is odd, that only Catholics call others 'bigots'. I wonder why?

Isn't that still judging, when they shouldn't be?

It doesn't matter to me what they call me, but I do hope they just don't call me, "late for dinner!"

One is not saved by faith, or faith and works. One is saved by God's Grace. It is through faith in Christ one is saved, and thus one exhibits works comparable to one's faith.
Also one who is saved does wander off the path(the way), but repentance is available. And the sooner one realizes, and resolves the issue of sin, the better it is for one and all.
What you are not taking into account is that a person can be led by God, if one so wills it in their life. It is part of the Lord's Prayer...,"Thy will be done...." And again, the sooner this is done, the better it is for one and all.
"One is saved by God's Grace. It is through faith in Christ one is saved, and thus one exhibits works comparable to one's faith."

- which is Self

You'll promote Self, like Jesus, but yet you don't believe Jesus when he teaches about it.

Why do you follow men?

Later he died physically.
We all will die - physically.

To live in a spiritual form is yet to be proven to many.

No religion is required.

Why?
BECAUSE YOU ARE BASING YOUR ENTIRE IMAGE OF MARY ON WHAT WAS DOCUMENTED IN THE NT. THEREFORE, I SUGGEST YOU FIRST DEMONSTRATE THAT CHRIST COMMANDED EVERYTHING ABOUT HIS MOTHER AND HIS MINISTRY IS DOCUMENTED IN THE LETTERS AND MEMOIRS OF HALF OF HIS 12 APOSTLES!!
Prove Sola scripture Preston or you guys are hosed. I shout in all Caps too.
Believe me or not, you've just taken the first steps to being honest with others, with this statement....
"I SUGGEST YOU FIRST DEMONSTRATE THAT CHRIST COMMANDED EVERYTHING ABOUT HIS MOTHER AND HIS MINISTRY IS DOCUMENTED >>>IN THE LETTERS AND MEMOIRS OF HALF OF HIS 12 APOSTLES<<<"

All you need to do now is accept his other Apostles as valid, and you should be on your way to an astonishment you won't find through the teachings of men.

I'm rooting for you!

as Christians, we don't by [mistake] walk away from Jesus, and backslide. it is [intent]ional.
sorry that is over your head but I have tried to make it simple so you can understand that I present Mary as a normal human being ,not some supernatural goddess
are you referencing "symbolism" in your interpretation of the text?

Hmmmm.....opinion at best.

Most protestants don't harbor such ill will towards Mary, I think they truly misunderstand Catholic teaching. In Preston's case, I think he has some unresolved issues with his own mother.
FYI. I think non Catholics,are taught that Mary was,a,faithful woman doing Gods will.And NITHING mire specifically to avoid the whole worship of Mary thing

I personally feel she was the bravest woman in the bible..She probably was,greatly scorned and had Joseph not been visited by the Angel she woukd have been killed.

It's possible to me she was saved by the Holy Spirit who came THat day she conceived..Or through her Son before He ever preached a word..in public

She knew the law if the time but TRUSTED GOD with a pure faith that it would work. According to. His will.

S he took a long trip on a donkey no less close to term God's plan .while very pregnant
Fulfilled scriptures but she did it in obedience.

SHE raised Him as AJew but knew something bad was in His future that I am sure haunted her since she had been told a,sword woukd pierce her.

She had to humor e her other children because they at first did nit believe in Him. And maybe over time helped make them believers

She helped in His work ..And she suffered at th e CROSS as no other could have. He was her CHILD ..She was Not a surrogate

THE SEED OF THE WOMAN would Crush the head if the SERPENT..HER SEED ..wholly human and wholly divine US what Jesus is.

Was she ever virgin .I BELIEVE she was a true wife to Joseph. JosephAFTER JESUS was born and had other children such as James ..A great church father.

Whatever she was,she was His mother. And God saw fit to give her this honor over all the women in the world. And whereas a,VIRGIN WHEN SHE CONCEIVED HIM

And none if what I just Saud goes against against anything written in the bible.

I have Said before..We can ask h e r if it's important enough when we see her ..me. I want to know about what He was like as a child..
None if thus conjecture has anything to do with salvation though the Saving Blood of our LORD.

and I take it back ..the bravest person other than Jesus in the bible..No man could suffer as she did except Her Son

I said its conjecture..But Gamalieil was already an important teacher when Jesus was crucified. He was teacher if Paul..So older.

He could have been there us my point.

WE ONLY KNOW THAT JESUS WAS THERE DOING HIS FATHERS business.

GOD obviously wanted Him left behind that day !!!!

Jesus does NOT LIE.

I really don't care who else was in the TEMPLE .JESUS was . God wanted Him there.

Inadvertently Mary and Joseph were doing HIS WILL.

She was NOT a bad mother. And a lot braver to do what she did than all if us put together .

Did she ever sin ..most likely ..But she was at the foot if that Cross.
Talk about being washed in His blood ..He was her Son.

And God's

Mary was not filled with the Holy Ghost until the 50 th day. unlike His Apostles who were filled much earlier
