then explain this verse to me.<quoted text>
Marian doctrine is complex. It wasn't fully clear to the first Christians. I say if God used the Roman Catholic Church to establish a Bible- 400 yrs after Jesus - then why wouldn't He also use them to clarify Marian dogma for us?
12:14 But the woman was given the two wings of a giant eagle so that she could fly out into the wilderness, to the place God prepared for her, where she is taken care of – away from the presence of the serpent – for a time, times, and half a time.
and look closely at this verse, before you answer.
