Revelation 5:2-5 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of th elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

For all those who would contend that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was sinless, these verses prove to be a devastating blow. In fact, for all who would espouse any other savior than Jesus have a very difficult time in getting past these verses. The search for any person worthy to open the scroll eliminated not only those in heaven but those on earth as well. Amongst this crowd, even Mary was not found worthy. To espouse to others that she is to be sought through prayer for favors is patently blasphemous. There is only One who is worthy of worship, honor and glory. There is only One worthy to open the scroll and it was not Mary. While she was blessed among women, the title Blessed One is only reserved for the Christ.(Romans 9:5)

For that matter, we can also ask where Mohamed, Krishna, L. Ron Hubbard, Confucius, Paul, John and others were when this question is asked. Truth be known, NONE are worthy. There is only one worthy and it is the Lamb of God who was slain for our transgressions. Salvation is not by accident but it is by the purpose of God and only through His Son.

Reader, do not trust the inventions of men for salvation when the plan of God is so perfect yet restricted. Man's works do not achieve the righteousness of God. Righteousness is imputed to us through Christ and Christ alone by faith and faith alone. When this passage in Revelation makes it so clear that Christ is the only Holy One, why would you seek after another? Turn to Christ while it is still day. Turn from idols before the night falls. Mary cannot save you, but her Son can. Mary cannot change your heart. Jesus can and will if you will but call upon Him for salvation.

There are no other options for there is none in heaven, none in earth and none under the earth worthy to save you than Jesus Alone.
