[1] to the title Blessed Mother (she is blessed and a mother, but the title has no biblical basis)

"all generations shall call me blessed."

2] to taking a singluar past statement and extrapolating a present function, without any scriptural warrant.

If the Bible is all we have (i.e. Tradition means nothing), then is it possible to place too much emphasis on a "singular past statement" , in the Gospel, no less?

YES! By all means. Blessed Mother ??? it doesn't say that.

There is a pattern in the RCC of taking verses and extrapolating meaning not found in the text. Bad methodology

"full of grace" is another example of RC eisegesis.
