Without the men of the Catholic church compiling, editing, revising and publishing the bible ... there would BE no new testament.

It is mere reason. Jesus Christ is King.(The entire Book of the Song of Solomon goes into this.) So there is a King, who is the Bridegroom, and a Queen who is the Bride. But Jesus also has a mother, which makes her Queen Mother.(According to ancient Israel law.)
If you deny being part of the bride of Christ, then you deny Christ, and Christ's mother. Its simple.
as I just pointed out to Anthony, Jesus was never King on this Earth, so mary could not be a queen, if so, then joseph is a king to.

remember what we posted about mary finding Jesus at the temple, sshe used these words, "your father and I were worried".so why don't catholics lift Joseph up as King also.lol

I dont acknowledge mary as my mother since the Bible tells us that we are now Brothers to Christ thru His Blood sacrifice. Mary never prayed one prayer for me or any now living, she never sustained me, nor fed me, nor gave me to drink, but Jesus has.

mary was a surrogate mother, and when he left this world, we read no more about mary, her star demimished until she went to live with he Son

to bad that your soul is black from the lies that you tell and have been told.
you don't know the difference between being Blessed and the infilling of the Holy Ghost.
Mary (she's special, not just any old sinner like the rest of us)

"The Lord is with thee"

"Thou hast found favour in the sight of God."

" The Holy Spirit will come upon thee, and the power of the most High will overshadow thee. "

"My soul magnifies the Lord"

"Behold, from this day forward all generations will count me blessed; because he who is mighty, he whose name is holy, has wrought for me his wonders."

"No sooner had Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, than the child leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth herself was filled with the Holy Ghost;"

"Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb."

"How have I deserved to be thus visited by the mother of my Lord?"

"Why, as soon as ever the voice of thy greeting sounded in my ears, the child in my womb leaped for joy. "

The Apostles:

"Once more Jesus said to them, Peace be upon you; I came upon an errand from my Father, and now I am sending you out in my turn. With that, he breathed on them, and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit; when you forgive men’s sins, they are forgiven, when you hold them bound, they are held bound."

When I think of Jesus, as a child in the Temple, I think back to the Holy Spirit in the tent with Moses in the Wilderness. And these reflect today, in the present, with both Jesus and the Holy Spirit in our hearts. Both are teaching us.
Intersting take on this ..I think there is,mire truth in scripture than Is apparent just reading it.

Jesus,us,in our hearts along with The Spirit in our souls and guiding us.

Look at how much has,come from this simple story.
It's there for a reason..Jesus had a reason for belongings temple that day..

And the confusion on His whereabouts,was,probably a God thing.

And He woukd not allow the earthly parents to get in the sT if this a appointment..

None if which makes,Mary a bad mother

I've never really read the Gospel of Thomas- other than a few Jesus quotes.
I don't consider it Biblical because I'm not authorized to determine what's valid canon.
Jesus never told anyone what Books to include in the Bible. He never even told the Jews. They didn't have the same collection of Books while He was alive on Earth ya know.
You tell me why the . Gospel of Thomas is not in your KJV.
How come Tobit and Maccabees aren't in your Bible? Have you read those books?
Aren't they OT..were they in the Jewish bible .

I believe you. I know Preston's views on this are weird. And one can only speculate on his views, and the reasons he has for them. I suspect it has something to do do with his need to be dominating, and others(especially women) to be under him.

Having quite a broad range of experience, I would say in general, the Protestant and neo-Protestant groups accept her as someone special in the life of Jesus, but they don't go much farther than that.

What is most dangerous here is that Preston removes Jesus' humanity, by eliminating Mary, and calling her a surrogate. More or less he thinks God planted a created human embryo in Mary, and that would of course not make Jesus of human lineage, but a 2nd created "human being". It is dangerous for himself, and others who listen to him.

Not one of these followers of truth will answer my question.

Do you believe (within the context of theology) that Jesus was a faithful Jew to Judaism just before he died ... or do you believe he had converted to Catholicism when he was baptized by John the Baptist???

Come on faithful ones. Stand up and take the bait.

She was conceived if the Holy Spirit ..

Again I honestly think SOME non Catholics,are against her to be in contrast to Catholic practices.

Personally I can't see Cowboy meeting Jesus and letting Him know,He thinks He had a,bad mother..That God was sadly mistaken in trusting her with His care!!!

I honestly don't get it.

You do not have to worship her or reverence her
To have respect and empathy fir her

any times people were filled with the Holy Ghost and they spoke as such. BUT this is not what we are talking about as we compare the Filling of the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost.

when I preach and(GIF) can say the same thing, the holy Spirit comes on me(fills me) and I preach under His Anointing.
and no Jesus did NOT have the Holy Ghost within Him, they are not one and the same. they are two parts of the trinity. that is stupid to say that.

Rose...Cowboy was trying to say that Mary was not a goddess...she was human as the rest of us. It has turned into a bees nest, and the hornets are stinging wildly.
IMO this is more proof that Mary had little children to take her attention.

Most certainly, Mary was human like the rest of us.

In this story, her familiarity of Jesus always being near, and suddenly realize he is not, is for us a reminder, that when we sin, Jesus may withdraw his presence from us, until we turn, repent, and search him with great anxiety. We will find Him doing His Father's business.

Mary again, leads us to Jesus, as she does for us to the Cross. But we must go.

sorry, but if you knew anything about Biology and the human body, you would understand what I am talking about. I even have showed people how this embryo grows and attaches it self to the womb and takes on the characteristics of the human body.

Week 1–3 5–7 days after fertilization, the blastocyst attaches to the wall of the uterus (endometrium). When it comes into contact with the endometrium it performs implantation. Implantation connections between the mother and the embryo will begin to form, including the umbilical cord. The embryo's growth centers around an axis, which will become the spine and spinal cord. The brain, spinal cord, heart, and gastrointestinal tract begin to form.[5]

now this is as simple to understand as it could be. if you don't understand , may I suggest that you return to jr high and learn some biology
