Please show me where Scripture teaches that He "honored His mother perfectly."Mary told us, herself, in her Magnificat. I know Catholics know that very well.
Please show us where anyone on here has called Mary a "birthing vessel." I certainly have not. She was indeed special, "blessed among women--but not blessed ABOVE all women.
If they were rebukes, they were gentle ones. But where did anyone on here claim that Jesus' asking John to take care of His mother was like an "afterthought"? This is the very first time I have ever heard that accusation.
Jesus honored His mother perfectly, since He is and was the perfect and holy Son of God. But I can tell you He did NOT "honor" her by praying to her; giving her unbiblical titles such as "only hope for sinners" (making Jesus superfluous), "queen of heaven," "Star of the Sea", "Gate of heaven", "Cause of our Salvation" (rendering Jesus as so much chopped liver), etc. NOR did He make statues of her, dress it in gaudy garments, and parade the statue throughout the streets for people to fawn over, gawk at, and weep over.
