She is very much alive in Christ So what about my family members? What about Paul or any other apostles? Please give me a scriptural references that separates Mary from anyone else in this sense. In that it is said we all die, we are all sinners, and anyone who sins shall die, this means Mary has d...

The emphasis on Mary falls in that category of intercessory requests, asking for her intercession with her son
But she is dead, how does intercession work then? When we do this are we praying to Mary on Behalf of her Jesus or to Jesus on behalf of Mary?

While the elevation of Mary by Catholics is at times unnerving (contrary to official Catholic doctrine I might add), the lack of respect and appreciation shown her since the reformation is as equally unnerving (contrary to what Martin Luther, John Calvin, and the likes believed, I might add). Maybe...

Yes he was divine, but that does not make him the one Almighty. The pharisees and Saducees held much power, and he was a threat. He flat out told them they were wrong, and men of power were not willing to hear that. "Joh 10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for...

"In other words, we'll just have to agree to disagree" Not if I'm given a scriptural explanation. Anything of the sort that is implied, or based on ones interpertation, that was not commanded of us should not be used. If anyone can show me, in scripture, that it is good for us to place such an empha...

Yes I agree, He is the closest thing on the earth to God. And since he is the Son of God, concieved by the will of the Father, part of God is in him. But to say He is God incarnet I think is a little far fetched. Jesus made it clear that He is separate from the Father, but being of one mind and spir...

Despite any explanation given, I see no scriptural evidence or command for the emphasis put on Mary.

Why is she included in Catholic prayers when it is in no way how Jesus commanded us to pray?

It's all heresay. There will always be those trying to disprove the idea of a creator, especially that being christian based.

"This is why Jesus was fully man and fully God" Then why did he indicate otherwise? John 14:28 - "You have heard me say to you, I am going away and coming back to you. If you loved me, you would rejoice because I said, I am going to the Father, for my FATHER IS GREATER THAN I." Matthew 24:36 - But o...

Ok, I can understand that, I agree that the english language may not be clear in certain things. On the other hand, how does that indicate Jesus was fully God?

And what of the other verses that indicate there is a distinct separation?

Instead of questioning why a loving God would create hell, we should be thankful that we are alive at all. Remember this, without His will, we would cease to exist, have nothing, no love, no hate, no pleasure, no pain..... nothing. We owe our existence to his kindness to put up with our crap. Even w...

The Trinity, tradition or scripture?

In regards to the trinity, primarily a catholic-based teaching, I don't understand how it can be taught that Jesus is God incarnate. I have never found any real evidence in scripture that indicates this, yet it continues to be taught as the christian standard. How can Christ be the same God when he ...
