How is giving birth to a baby a gift on the mother's part? That's the gift from GOD, not the mother. So if Mary has a gift to "give birth", automatically every mother has this gift too, and suddenly you can pray to them?
I asked you to provide me Scripture that says you can pray to Mary but you did not. Mary is the mother of Jesus on the human side, not the divine side. Remember, Jesus is both human and GOD in the same sense, flesh and divine. GOD is made of 3 persons: the Father, the Son [Jesus], and the Holy Spirit. Where's Mary?
Why did you not read the 5 pages instead of shooting to your post? You claimed that others wrote beautiful pieces, yet you read these all 5 pages that after after making your first post 10 minutes after registering? Let's be honest and sincere, and NOT preach anything unbiblical. This is a fair warning, brother.
Show me Scripture where you can pray to a dead man. Brother Cody showed you that you cannot and should not. Let me show you something else also.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15As you see, these things you see and hear when praying to dead people are the devil's tricks. This is not uncommon. I've heard the same garbage from my own family members and it is WRONG!
13For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Instead of swaying around my questions, answer them honestly or else do not preach about praying to dead people and Mary. That goes against what Scripture teaches.
