Again, I didn’t mean to offend anyone, it just looks very obvious to me that the church kind of stretches or just ignores much of what the Bible says, thats all. My Bible doesn’t say Hail Mary full of Grace, it says, whom God has found favour with. I also thought that the early Christians in Christ’s day formed the Bible. Just some thoughts there.
It has been a longstanding of the Christian Church, going back to ancient times, that Mary was ever-virgin. Because this is how the early Church interpreted scripture and because this interpretation makes sense when we keep in mind that the word for brother also means cousin, there is no need to change that interpretation because certain Protestants are looking for ways to prove the “heresy” of Marian devotion.
It’s simply historically consistent for Christians to hold to Mary’s ever-virginity.
As for her sinlessness, this too is an ancient belief. Though not explicitly stated in scripture, the saying that Mary is “full of grace” is scriptural and found in Luke.
Catholics do not believe that Mary was sinless by her own power, but rather by the merits of Christ mystically applied to her from birth.
As the Gospel of John writes “the Word became flesh”.
Mary is the gateway through which that Word became flesh. Her sanctification occured in a unqiue way, as it prepared her for bearing God in her own body.
