JESUS bore our curse.
JESUS experienced death for us
JESUS became sin (took its penalty for us.)
As we confess, HE forgives us.
As we confess, HE pardons us.
Receiving JESUS, we are no longer condemned.
As we receive HIM by faith we become sons of God.
Statements on Mary by Catholic saints
Quote: ...He falls and is lost who has not recourse to Mary. Mary is called the gate of heaven because no one can enter that blessed kingdom without passing through her. The way to salvation is open to none otherwise than through Mary... The salvation of all depends on their being favored and protected by Mary. He who is protected by Mary will be saved: he who is not will be lost... Our salvation depends on thee.. God will not save us without the intercession of Mary...
Dave Hunt; A Woman Rides the Beast. p. 438
NOTE: WOW! The Bible does not say anything about Mary saving us. But as you can see from the scriptures above, that Jesus is the only intercessor and savior. You can only be saved through HIM, Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Quote: 829 " But while in the most blessed Virgin the Church has already reached that perfection whereby she exists without spot or wrinkle, the faithful still strive to conquer sin and increase in holiness. And so they turn their eyes to Mary"..in her, the Church is already the "all-holy."
II Devotion to the Blessed Virgin
971 "All generations will call me blessed" The church's devotion to the Blessed Virgin is intrinsic to Christian worship." The Church rightly honours "the Blessed Virgin with special devotion. From the most ancient times the Blessed Virgin has been honoured with the title of "Mother of God", to whose protection the faithful fly in all their danger and needs... This very special devotion... differs essentially from the adoration which is given to the incarnate Word and equally to the Father and the Holy Spirit, and greatly fosters this adoration. The liturgical feast dedicated in the Mother of God and Marian prayer, such as the rosery, an "epitome of the whole Gospel," express this devotion to the Virgin Mary.
