Nonetheless, such movement toward Christ is nowhere to be found in the Roman Catholic Church. Mary's elevated status is not in any way disappearing, even though we never see it given to her in Scripture. Moreover, those words of having need decrease were uttered from the man whom the Word of God reputes to be the greatest born among women (Matthew 11:11). The truth of the matter is that anybody who obeys Christ is to be considered a part of His family (Matthew 12:46-50), which logically deemphasizes any alleged uniqueness that Catholics attribute to Mary.
One factor that led the Apostle Paul to scolding the Corinthian Christians was their idolizing of men (1 Corinthians 1:10-13). Yet, there are plenty of Catholic congregations named after and giant statues erected in the name of influential Christian figures. Such activity extends beyond mere honor. It is all an indicator of religious carnality (1 Corinthians 3:4-5). Paul goes as far as to credit all success in ministry to God using a gardening analogy (1 Corinthians 3:7). He even tells his audience that Jesus Christ is our irreplaceable foundation (1 Corinthians 3:11). Thus, it would make perfect sense to say that every jot of our religious devotion rightfully belongs to Him alone.
Not one time is Mary mentioned in Scripture as having divine or supernatural qualities. Roman Catholic saintly veneration is something that directly contradicts biblical doctrine.
