You don't see in Scripture, where God elevated Mary above all of mankind?

As many of us are familiar with the RC dogma the Immaculate Conception where the belief is that Mary was sinless in order to carry God in her womb.
This is a misstatement. It wasn't a requirement for Mary to be sinless. Like all things from God, that was a gift.

Also, I don't think you can relate receiving God into our hearts and carrying God in your womb. How many people in the history of the human race has carried God in their womb?

One, someone had to.
Yeah!  But not just anyone.  Only the Woman whom God deemed worthy of the greatest honor that anyone human could receive.
And yet we don't see Christ anywhere elevating her or exalting her above all others
Really? You don't see that in electing her to be His mother, He elevated her above all women?

And in Scripture, when she is crowned Queen of Heaven (Rev 12:1), you don't see that as God elevating her above all of mankind?
and we find no Scripture that does so either.
You do, you simply deny those Scriptures.

In fact, I think He (i.e. God) was careful not to do so....and yet here we still have Catholics turning her into some kind of goddess and ascribing things to her which neither Christ nor Scripture do. Ever think there might be a reason why Jesus never called her mother in Scripture but only referred to her as woman?
On the contrary. The problem is that you read the Scriptures with eyes of sinful flesh. Whereas the Scriptures are spiritually discerned:

1 Corinthians 2:14
King James Version (KJV)
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Until you can learn to receive the Spiritual truths of Scripture, you will continue to misunderstand the Word of God.
