BTTT!

This has been taught in apologetics classes I have attended.

All Proestestants need to do is read the Bible and find out how many times Mary was called "Blessed"!!!!!!!!!

By Jesus? Not once.

However lok at those Jesus called "blessed".

Matthew 5:
[1] Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down his disciples came to him.
[2] And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:
[3] "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
[4] "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
[5] "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
[6] "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
[7] "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
[8] "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
[9] "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
[10] "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
[11] "Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.

Let's not play silly word games.

Three times (four if you count the woman who Jesus contradicted) and all in the Gospel of Luke. None of the other writers found it important enough to mention it.

Have you ever read a bible? This is the second statement from you today that would cause me to wonder.

Also if you would like I can tell you how many times she was mentioned by name. It's not a big task since I don't think she is mentioned after the first chapter of Acts
