Pope tries to make “Mother of God” equal to her son

The Roman Catholics have tried their best to make their “blessed Mother” equal to the Son of God.

The wooden idol named “Lady of Sorrows” waits with seven swords in her hearts, for those who have been told to adore her, and pray in her name.

The devil is often in the details.  While the Bible says a spiritual sword was going to pierce the soul of Jewish virgin Miriam, some Vatican scholars claim a physical sword pierced her heart. Not only one, but seven swords.

Here are one more picture:

The Queen of Heaven is presented as equal to her son. She is suppose to come back, the same way she left, to save us.

This is what a Catholic blogger writes about the Pope’s “Lady of Sorrows”:

This excerpt from a sermon by St. Bernard of Clairvaux (Sermo in dom. infra oct. Assumptionis, 14-15: Opera omnia, Edit. Cisterc. 5 [1968}, 273-274) is used in the Roman Office of Readings for the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows on September 15. It speaks of the martyrdom of the Virgin at the foot of the cross–her heart is pierced by a sword as Simeon predicted as her Son’s body is pierced by nails and spear.

There is not only private bloggers who distribute this kind of blasphemy. This is what the Roman Catholic online magazine “Catholic Culture” writes:

 This feast is dedicated to the spiritual martyrdom of Mary, Mother of God, and her compassion with the sufferings of her Divine Son, Jesus. In her suffering as co-redeemer, she reminds us of the tremendous evil of sin and shows us the way of true repentance. May the numerous tears of the Mother of God be conducive to our salvation; with which tears Thou, O God, art able to wash away the sins of the whole world.

 As Mary stood at the foot of the Cross on which Jesus hung, the sword of sorrow Simeon had foretold pierced her soul. Below are the seven sorrows of Mary:

Source: Catholic Culture

Lets us read what the infallible Word of God explains to mankind:

 Luke 2:35
so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”

The issue is if the Jewish mother of Jesus was a human being, a sinner just like us.  Did this Jewess need to be saved by her Son?

The only correct answer is YES.

The above verse confirms that Miriam of Nazareth was eventually saved, when the Holy Spirit came like a sword, and pierced her soul. But most likely not at the cross of Calvary Hill. But rather in the Upper Room, when the Holy Spirit came with power and convictions.

Miriam must have felt sorrow and pity standing next to the cross. She is a mother, who felt she was about to loose her son.

But such tears do not save anyone.  The sword of the Spirit of God brings tears based on a convictions about personal sins, and rebellion against God. Jesus died on the cross for the sins of Miriam too.

The sword of the Holy Spirit will lead us into repentance. Just like Jewish Miriam was lead into repentance and salvation by her Son.

A fake woman presented by the Pope as Jewish Miriam, the mother of Jesus.

All men have sinned, and fallen short of the glory of God. All human beings needs to be saved, without failure.

Since the Roman Catholic Church deny that “Catholic Mary” was a sinner, the Vatican copycat can not have been a human.

And obviously claimed to be a deity her self, she did not need to be saved by her own Son.

The Queen of Heaven is at best fiction.

But more likely she is a powerful demon, who holds tens of millions of Roman Catholics in bondage to idolatry and falsehood presented as “holiness”.

The second aspect, is that sinless “Catholic Mary” is presented as co-matrix. A co-redeemer with her sinless Son.

It is therefor important for the Vatican to portray her as some kind of a martyr standing on Calvary Hill, next to her son.

As Jesus died there, so did she we are told.  At least her heart must have been crushed, for the forgiveness of sins of the World. Both mother and son martyred.

This is blasphemy, and a set of damnable lies. It makes the savior Yeshua the Messiah not the singular name for salvation. But men must rather accept a dual pagan deity, who together appear as the saviors in plural.

Within the Roman Catholic religion, God of the Bible is blasphemed every day.

For all who fall into this religious society of God-mockers, and present all its falsehood as truth, there is a simple message:  It is to late to regret all the sins you called acts of “holiness” the day you find your self in Hell.

You must repent today from this falsehood. God is Holy. His judgment will be fair and just.

 2 Corinthians 11:4
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.

Paul warned us about false teachers, who would present us with a “different Jesus”.  A copy cat invented in the bottomless pit. This is one of the classical examples.

  1. You are very misinformed about the Catholic Faith and making assumptions that are simply not true. I come from a Protestant background and can see how non-Catholics could easily misconstrue the facts and be upset by what they think Catholics are doing. Catholics are preaching about the Jesus the disciples knew and they have been doing so for over 2000 years. They do not worship statues or Mary for that matter. Mary is the Mother of Jesus and she endured great joy and pain. She is admired, honored and loved for her sacrifice and devotion. Why do so many Protestants feel the need to make her insignificant and only a character in the annual Christmas play. And I’m guessing the writer of this post is not a Father himself or he would better understand how it would feel (like a knife piercing your heart) to have your child brutally tortured even if you knew it was part of God’s plan. I encourage you to learn the TRUTH about the Catholic faith before you write negatively about it. You will find every part of the Catholic Mass and what Catholics believe in scripture. Read your bible in its entirety and not only the scripture that suits your beliefs. It is an eye opening experience.

    1. Cheri.

      My reply:

      Please share this experience. What scriptures have you found, that can justify Catholicism?

    2. Cheri I couldn’t agree with you more. I was raised in a fundamentalist church, a Pentecostal Assembly of God church to be exact and faithfully attended, prayed and read my Bible as any devout Christian would. During this time I felt The Lord leading me to find out more about the Catholic church. I attended an RCIA group to find out exactly what the Catholic church was all about as well as to dispelled some of my fears that perhaps I was being led away from the true church (Assemblies of God). I was totally shocked to find out that what I had been led to believe for some 40 odd years was nothing other than total misinformation with “scare tactics” used to keep me from straying into the hands of the devil. I say that in all honesty because that is exactly what we were taught through preaching, articles in an evangelical magazine and tracts that were used to evangelize Catholics who were believed to be “going to hell in a handbasket” for perverting the truth and encouraging it’s people to pray to idols and whatever else can be said about the Catholic Church. I converted to Catholocism over 25 years ago and have found the fullness of my faith in her. May I suggest an excellent CD that I recently purchased which says it so much better than I ever could. It’s by a former Catholic, jaded in his faith who went searching elsewhere in the evangelical Protestant community. He became an evangelical Protestant minister only to eventually return to his Catholic faith. The CD is titled ‘I’m Not Being Fed’ by Jeff Cavins and is available thru Lighthouse Catholic Media. I believe it will truly touch the heart of anyone sincerely searching for the truth about our faith. God bless you and those who endeavor to search for answers that are scripturally based. ~ Rose

      1. Rose,

        You said: I converted to Catholocism over 25 years ago and have found the fullness of my faith in her.

        MY comment: The Word of God is the complete truth. It isn’t Mary that will get you into the kingdom of God, nor is it the pope, or bowing down to statues. All of that is a sinful and demonic. It is only JESUS CHRIST.

        Revelation 9:20-21

        The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk, nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.

      2. I am so happy the Lord showed me John 14:6 when I was being convicted by the Holy Spirit of “mary” worship. The Mary of God’s Word was not sinless as the Word of God says there was only ONE sinless that would be Jesus The Christ…Even Mary said she needed a Saviour…she said she was BLESSED AMONG WOMEN not ABOVE ❤ The catholic doctrine would be a "different Jesus" …a "different Mary"…I just don't think that the people created to worship GOD alone realize what this religion is doing to them. 😦

      3. First mistake: Rose, you state…”I converted to Catholocism over 25 years ago and have found the fullness of my faith in her. ”

        In her, I’m assuming you mean to be The Catholic Church. Wrong! Our fullness, as Believers is found ONLY in Yeshua Messiah and not in The Church. If that were true, The Bride would have no need of The Bridegroom!

    3. You never be a true Protestan , because protestan means protest about a lie, and worship images is a lie, and if you were a true protestan you know the Bible, Salms 115.

    4. Did you know that Roman Catholics call Mary the “Queen of Heaven”? Did you know that the Bible talks about the queen of heaven? It does. The Queen of Heaven is A PAGAN BABYLONIAN GODDESS, A DEVIL– Jeremiah 7:18, “The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the QUEEN OF HEAVEN, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.”

    5. you are blinded…find a good bible teaching church..try Pastor Mike Hoggard..he will set you straight..listen to some of his watch man videos…

    6. There is no way a real Catholic, believing in such lies, calling the pope the Holy Father (blasphemy) Mary was sinless (heresy) salvation is only thru the mass (doctrine of demons), and be a born again Christian and go to heaven. The RCC IS THE MOST DECEPTIVE ANTICHRIST CULT IN THE WORLD TODAY!

  2. The truth is that Catholics have indeed equated Mary to God and Jesus Christ. Evidence of this can be found in the ‘Catholic litany of the blessed virgin mary’ which they recite at the end of the rosary. In that litany, they give Mary titles that only belong to God. Some of the blasphemous statements found in it are:
    That Mary is:
    – the mother of the creator (Surely, God created Mary)
    – still a virgin (The Bible says she lost her virginity after giving birth to Jesus. Read Matthew 1:25, Matthew 13:55, Matthew 12:47, Mark 3:31, Luke 8:19-20, John 7:5, etc. if in doubt)
    – the queen of angels, patriarchs, prophets, apostles, martyrs, saints, confessors, virgins. (The Bible says that all authority in heaven and earth was given to Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:18, Philippians 2:10, Acts 4:12, Revelation 5)
    – was conceived without original sin (Romans 3:23 contradicts such a doctrine)
    – is the queen of peace (The Bible says Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace. Now, isn’t calling Mary the queen of the same exalting her above Jesus?)
    – is the health of the sick (It is only by the wounds of Jesus Christ that we are healed – Isaiah 53:5, 1 Peter 2:24)
    – is the refuge of sinners (Only Jesus Christ is. Acts 4:12)
    – is the cause of their joy
    – is the seat of wisdom (Surely, who else does the Bible tell us to consult except God? Isaiah 8:19, Job 12:13, Romans 11:33, Romans 16:27)
    – … and so on and so forth. Have a look at the litany for yourself. It is an abominable collection of blasphemous statements and I will never want to look at it again.

    1. Mary is not equal to Jesus or God. The Catholics only respect and appreciate her role as a devout and committed mother of Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God. She was a good mother to Jesus. All the other titles of respect are not equated to worshipping Mary. Bible also tells us that God respected her and loved her. Protestants unnecessarily exaggerated the Catholic practices without knowing properly. Of course they don’t want to know the truth either, They will only protest, thats what their founders true character. The followers cannot be otherwise.

  3. Very misinformed. Your word choice of “Jewess” alone speaks about your attitudes. Seek to understand, not disparage, for in so doing you edify yourself.

  4. Truly the author of this blog does NOT understand Mary’s role in Christianity! She is the vessel, NOT the Source! She is a REFLECTION of the Grace of God, not the Source. She is the mediatrix of God’s Graces, but again, NOT the Source of them. We KNOW God is God. Mary is human. Born without sin, so that she could be the perfect vessel of the Son of God, Who is Perfection. Go to Medjugorje and show this article to ANY of the priests, or visionaries there, they will tell you EXACTLY who Mary is for them, and for all Catholics. It’s really quite simple, she is NOT God, she is the Mother of Christ. Praying the Rosary would help your soul to understand fully who Mary is, and it would also help you to understand Who God is. I would suggest praying the COMPLETE Rosary, all 4 sets of Mysteries each and every day with your heart. That will awaken your soul to the true mystery that Mother Mary is. She is unique. She is Our Mother, every single solitary person, regardless of their “religion”, because she is the Mother of our eternal soul! Jesus made her such as His last act on earth. Pray, Pray, Pray, and you will see, see, see.

    1. Dear Frances:

      You said:

      “Praying the Rosary would help your soul to understand fully who Mary is, and it would also help you to understand Who God is.”

      Frances, have you ever simply prayed and asked the Father to reveal Christ to you? When you are reading your bible, simple pray and ask Him to reveal Himself to you. He loves you and
      desires for you to know Him. Just simply ask.

    2. Dear Frances,

      The rosary contains several NON-biblical mysteries, so I would NOT recommend anyone pray the rosary. As someone who prayed the rosary 3X/day, I know what I am talking about. The Assumption, for instance, is non- biblically supported, so there is no desire for bible-believing Christians (like myself) to even consider this false proclamation by men let only meditate on it. The Word of God is so precious to us that we have no need for such doctrine/practice of men.


    3. Frances,

      Jesus says FOR ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of GOD !

      The catholic That Mary was sinless has deceived so many into worshipping her. The Bible proves this wrong.

    4. Frances, there was one more thing in your comments that stood out to me that I’ve been thinking about.

      You said: “… she is the Mother of our eternal soul! Jesus made
      her such as His last act on earth…”

      Did you ever look at what Jesus’ last words were while he hung on the cross? His last words were “I am thirsty.”

      Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” (John 19:28)

      When I think of Jesus saying these words, there is something here that stands out to me. The world (religion) could only offer Jesus vinegar when he thirsted.

      Thinking back to another time when Jesus thirsted, and I’m reminded of the story about the Samaritan woman.

      ** Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.”

      “Why are you asking me for a drink?” John 4:7-9 **

      Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.”

      The Samaritan woman (if you recall) was looking for love but not in the right place. (Recall all her husbands). She was thirsty. Jesus told her about the living water that he could give her.

      This story is written in the Bible for all of us. That Samaritan woman is us. “… ASK ME, and I would give you living water.” His living water is his Life. You just has to ask him for it.

  5. I would say the author of this blog understands Mary’s role a lot better than the popes or Catholic mystics this Mariology comes from. Cheri above asked,


    “Why do so many Protestants feel the need to make her insignificant….”

    End quote.

    Christians feel the need to correct the overblown role of Mary that is given her by the Catholic church. The popes and psuedo saints have taken Mary to a place that is totally out of line with the Bible and reason. Then the Catholics wonder why people accuse them of worshipping Mary. The reason you get that is because that’s exactly what it looks like you are doing. It’s not because people don’t understand the Catholic church. It’s because people do understand.

    1. David,

      We sure do understand! That is for sure! Raised in a very Marian culture w/in the catholic church, when I doubted the existence of God, I found unwavering faith in Mary! I know! This is blasphemy! But I bought in to catholic teaching Mary 150% and then some. It brought me to great desolation of soul, no salvation. Not until I knew my wretched nature, gave my heart to
      Jesus and vowed to Place no man/person/thing before Him did the veil from my eyes become removed! Mary does not save. Only Jesus saves. What a great lie to pray to some imaginary, godess-like figure! Satan had me right where he wanted me! Praise Jesus I am removed from it now and find my joy & salvation only in Him.

    You wrote
    Mary is
    human. Born without sin, so
    that she could be the perfect
    vessel of the Son of God, Who
    is Perfection.

    That’s pure blasphemy you don’t read your bible you were taught your catchesim, Bible is clear and simple
    The Bible says that all have sinned;
    “For all have sinned, and come
    short of the glory of
    God. . .” (Romans 3:23), yet Roman
    Catholics claim that Mary was
    without sin. Not only did she
    herself never err in thought, word
    or deed, but her very conception
    was free from any taint of original
    The Bible knows nothing of the
    supposed sinlessness of Mary:
    “When they sin against
    You (for there is no one
    who does not sin), and You
    become angry with them
    and deliver them to the
    enemy, and they take
    them captive to the land
    of the enemy, far or
    near;…” (1 Kings 8:46, 2
    Chronicles 6:36).

  7. The Bible says that in the last days, (the days and years following Jesus’ resurrection from the dead), there would be widespread apostasy and delusion. Satan copies Christ in all he does and is the great deceiver. I encourage those deluded Catholics who believe worshipping Mary isn’t demonic to look up “mother and son worship’ on the internet and learn of its worldwide pagan history.

  8. Hi Ivar!

    Keep up the good work to expose the chatholic faith as an antichristian religion! You have very much information about that antichristian religion!

  9. God bless you Ivafjeld,
    Roman catholics cannot even be honest about what tthey trul believe.
    Transubstantiation is also one of the most demonic doctrines.

    Imagine getting to heaven and having to tell Jesus you have been drinking blood,contrary to pauls epistle,
    Stay away from strangled and from blood,….etc.

  10. Yes, love your posts. Keep exposing the darkness and I will share pics and stories on fb for sure. We have to be the light in these dark times…:))

  11. Mary is only mentioned 54 times in the Bible. Of those times Mary Magdalene is mentioned in the same verse with her at least 15 times, and her, Mary Magdalene’s name is first. In these mentions of Mary, we need to note here there is more than one Mary in scripture the name Mary is only mentioned 54 times, like I said. No where in scripture does it tell us to treat Mary the mother of Jesus the way the Catholic’s do-it is blasphemy! There is no rosary beads, no purgatory! Making images/idols is plainly stated in the 10 Commandments as a sin! Exodus 20:3-17. We are not even to make an image of Jesus! We don’t know what He looks like. The Bible says, No one has see God at any time. John 1:18. Jesus is God, the ones that saw Jesus are mentioned in scripture, and they did not have images of Jesus or Mary! Mary was a sinner just like us, descendents of Adam and Eve. Mary was chosen because she was in a JEWISH bloodline that was not corrupted. Check out the genealogy of Jesus!

  12. I was a catholic for fifty years it s heresy.they do worship statues the whole church is full of them.the mass is boring and uneducational. You are discouraged from reading the bible. I knew very little about e King Jesus until I joined a Pentecostal church who believed in a relationship with the savior instead of a religion.Mary was the mother of Jesus the vessel in which God became man,she was a human being with faults who was not and s not sinless therefore she cannot answer your prayers she is not a deity or does she want you to pray to her,prayer to the only one who has the peer to answer yor prayers that would be God

  13. Praise God, Debbie you saw the light. People to need to ask x-Catholic’s to hear the truth! They will never go back it they are truly “Born Again”! Or any other false religion, Mormon, etc

  14. Besides praying to Mary the Catholic church has a bunch of saints they can go to for just about anything. If none of them is working and hope is lost you can go to St. Jude. I think they call him the patron saint of lost or hopeless causes.

  15. Thank God I was delivered from Catholicism. I will relate what happened to me when I was in Catholic grade school that shows one of many ways how they turn people to Mary worship and prayer.

    In the second grade classroom a nun was speaking to us. There were two pictures in the front of the room, above the blackboard. One picture was of Jesus. He had a stern look on His face and was staring off into the distance. The nun said that when we were bad kids Jesus is angry with us. Looking at hat picture of Him, with that look on His face, I’m sure all of the kids felt like I did. We were in trouble with God.

    Then she took her pointer and tapped the other picture. It was of a young woman with a smile on her face and a kind, loving look directed down at us. The nun told us that Mary was our loving mother and that when we offended God and He was mad at us we could always go to Mary and ask her to get forgiveness for us and that she would also help us with our problems. She said that Jesus loved His mother and would do whatever she asked.

    So, hearing things like that from childhood, it’s no wonder that Mary has taken a special place in the hearts of Catholics. It doesn’t matter if the Bible doesn’t agree with them. Their church filters out what doesn’t fit with it’s doctrines.

  16. Brother Dave, Oh my how awful. Because of the lies of the Catholic Church and all the other cults, no wonder Jews don’t want to get saved. Look at all the crazy stuff that is on Television and on the radio. The crazy groups that visit Israel. I have a loved one who said that the Catholic’s were the ones that were murdered during the Crusades. I can’t argue with him about it, his mind is set on this belief. That is what he was taught as a young child in Catholic school, and he says you only know what you are taught. I pray daily he gets saved.

    1. Hello nannette,

      Praise the Lord! The Catholic church has been very successful at rewriting history to suit it’s needs. The wicked popes have been made to look better, the fable about Protestantism starting in the 16th century with Luther, etc.

      They introduced a lot of false doctrine because they were able to keep the Bible away from most people. The Bible and truthful history are a nemesis to Roman Catholicism.

      May the Lord open the eyes of the loved one you wrote about.

  17. Thank you Dave. Maybe you could please pray also for this person, his name is Steven. His many family members are also in this same deception. This world is messed up. Satan has blinded many in this deception, not only the Catholic church, it has many veins all leading to hell (Mormonism, SDA,s, New Age, Jehovah’s Witness,etc.) I groan within myself thinking how awful the ‘Time of Jacob’s trouble’ will be. They have no clue of the danger and it is eternal. Jesus wanted to gather His children together like a hen gathers her chicks, (Matt. 23:37) for He paid the penalty for all, Romans 5:8, Galatians 1:4, 1 Timothy 1:15. Praise God for His Mercy! May the Lord be with you.

    1. Hi nannette,

      I will be praying for Steven. I’ll ask others to pray for him also. Praying for others is a great way to show mercy. Lord bless.

      Psa 18:25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful;

  18. Catholic Mary and dear sister in Lord (mother of our Savior) are two different persons. 1st one is Babylonian mother of Tamuz, so called Queen of Heaven (Jeremiah 7, 44 and Ezekiel 8). Mary (bible) should be ours role model in faith. She needed Savior just like all of us (Rom 3:23), fallen mankind (Luke 2)

    1. Mary was not the Catholic Church’s idea……SHE was GOD’S IDEA!

      In Geneses 3:15…She was on God’s mind

      In Isaiah 7:14…She was on God’s mind

      In Micah 5:3…She was on God’s mind

      In Luke and Matthew 1&2…She was was on God’s mind

      1. Dear Ann.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        You are being deceived by your priesthood, who twist and misuse the Word of God. What you claim is a typical Roman Catholic error.

        Genesis 3:15 is a message to Eve, and her offspring. Through a warning to Satan (the serpent). You might be able to see this, if you leave your Catholic dogmas behind for a second. Please read the full sequence, that includes verse 16:

        And I will put enmity
        between you and the woman,
        and between your offspring and hers;

        he will crush your head,
        and you will strike his heel.”
        16 To the woman he said,
        “I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;
        with painful labor you will give birth to children.

        Your desire will be for your husband,
        and he will rule over you.”..

        If this was to “Mary”, how come the “ever virgin” will give birth to children?

  19. Mary’s womb became the new ‘Ark of the Covenant’……holding within it the Bread of

    Life, the Word of God, and the Rod of Aaron (Hebrews 9:3-5). There was death

    and maladies involved in any contact with the Holy Ark….the Philistines got tumors

    in 1 Samuel 5, and 2 Samuel 6:6-9.

    Since you think the Catholic Church and our ‘priesthood’ are wrong…..then….where

    does it say that Holy Mary had other children…other that the reference in Rev.12:17

    1. Dear Ann.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      You Catholics seems unable to debate one topic at the time. Lets stay with Genesus 3:15-16 for some time.

      You can not have it both ways. You claim that these verses are about Mary, but can not accept that she had children. You have to make up your mind. Either these verses are not about Mary, or she had more than one child.

      Please come clear on this before we continue to other parts of the Bible.

  20. I am asking you for proof…..other than Rev. 12:17….that Our Holy Mother Mary had other children. My priests teach that Mary was the new ‘Ark of the Covenant. Any desecration could be fatal, e.g your foul suggestion that Holy Joseph might have had relations with her. You are the one that claimed that my priests were wrong. So…..educate me.
    Also…in Gen.3:15….God was talking to the serpent. In Gen 3:16….God was talking to Eve….and she did have Cain, Abel and Seth.

    1. Dear Ann.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      The message in Genesis 3:15-16 is about a woman who will bear children. Can we agree that this woman is Eve?

  21. Gen.3:15 is about a ‘Woman’, who’s ‘ seed ‘ will crush the head of the snake. Women don’t have ‘seed’….but this special ‘woman’ will have in her a ‘seed’. This is verified in Luke 1:41-43… ‘…when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leapt in her womb. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and cried out in a loud voice,
    “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the FRUIT of thy womb. But who am I that the Mother of my Lord should come to me.”

    Can’t you see that Gen.3:15, 16, &17, are 3 judgements for 3 different crimes???
    Or do you think it is all about snakes and people???

    1. Dear Ann.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      You wrote:

      Gen.3:15 is about a ‘Woman’, who’s ‘ seed ‘ will crush the head of the snake. Women don’t have ‘seed’

      My reply:

      All human beings are entitled to have their opinion. Regardless if their opinions are based on free fantasy or based on the Bible. I have chosen to believe in the Word of God.

      Galatians 3:29
      If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

      (end of scripture).

      In Genesis 3:15-16 God speaks to Satan, who has appeared in the form of a snake. And to Eve. She is the mother of mankind, a woman who fell into sin. She birthed children.

      Genesis 3:20
      Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.

      The mother of Jesus is one of these children. Because she belong to the people of Israel, a decendent of Jewish King David. The mother of Jesus offered a sin offering in the temple, just after she gave borth to Jesus. She did this because she was a sinner in need of forgivness for her sins.

      The mother of Jesus was a law abiding Jewess. The Bible explain that all men have sinned, and fallen short of the glory of God.

      You can continue to believe in what your priesthood has told you. But I will rather advice you to read the Bible, and believe in the Word of God. When you seek for the truth, you shall find. And the truth shall set your free.

      May the Holy Spirit come to you, and give light to scriptures. May Jesus the Messiah have mercy on your soul. Amen.

      1. Dear Ann.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        Now, when we have acknowledged that Eve is the mother of all he living, we know that the mother of Jesus is included. All of them in their falen nature, sinners, in need of salvation.

        Next: Did the mother of Jesus have children?

        There are solid scriptual evidences.

        1. Many places the Bible speaks about mothers having only one son.

        Luke 7:12
        As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out—the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her.

        Luke 9:38
        A man in the crowd called out, “Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for he is my only child.

        But Miriam, the mother of Jesus, gave birth to her firstborn, a son.

        Luke 2:7
        and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

        When the Bible speaks about a “firstborn” there will always be a “second born”. Always.

        Genesis 35:23
        The sons of Leah: Reuben the firstborn of Jacob, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar and Zebulun.

        1 Samuel 8:2
        The name of his firstborn was Joel and the name of his second was Abijah, and they served at Beersheba.

        To claim otherwise, is to delete the Jewishness of the Bible. The Hebrew Bible was not written to gentiles.

        2. The Bible even mentioned the second born, etc, of Miriam. The Mother of Jesus had many children.

        Mark 6:3
        Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.

        Jesus the Messiah explained that all believers will be persecuted and even rejected by their own family members. He did not come with peace, but would create division among close relatives. Those who love their own family more than God of the Hebrews, can not be His students and followers. They will compromise on truth.

        John 7:5
        For even his own brothers did not believe in him.

        So here it is. Scriptural evidence that the “ever virgin” is a Roman Catholic pagan copy of the Jewess. The paganization of the mother of Jesus. Any presentation of her as the ever virgin “Queen of Heaven”, is a part of a massive Italian falsification of the gospel.

  22. And at the foot of the Cross, Jesus himself ‘gave’ Mary another ‘son’….John (John 19:25-27).

    It would be evil to try and mis-interpret a 1st century book, to fit a 21st century idea.
    For example….the word cousin(which is french)…..did not exist. It was normal in those days to have many wives. And …also…a man was expected to marry the widow of his brother(that’s what got Judah in trouble ),….and almost prevented the marriage of Boaz and Ruth.

    Matthew’s mention of first-born is significant….because God demanded from Israel their first-born for his Temple…even the first-born of their cattle(Num.3:40-41)…..hence we have Jesus as Priest and Lamb of God.

  23. In Luke 1: 47-49 it says ; My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my SAVIOR, for He has looked on the humble estate of His servant. ect. this shows she needed salvation just like everyone else.

  24. Gloria,

    You said that the Word of God which you claim is the Bible is the complete truth.

    No, that is pure Fundamentalist/Evangelical Protestant manmade belief. The Church is the PILLAR and FOUNDATION of the TRUTH (1 Timothy 3:15), not the Bible. You just elevated the Bible as something higher than the Church which the Lord loved as a wife.

    Sola Scriptura is a pure manmade belief for anarchistic religions which resulted about 30 000 Protestant “Bible thumpers”. No Protestant denomination ever agreed in all doctrines. Sadly, what mess the Reformers brought, you Bible thumpers have to clean up!

    Ironically, there was no Church Father or Evangelist that endorsed the subscription for the “anarchistic” Sola Scriptura because all of them were Catholics.

  25. Calling Mary Theotokos, or “Mother of God,” affirms that Mary gave birth to Christ who is both God and man.

    When Jesus was in Mary’s womb, He was fully God and fully man.

    When Jesus passed through Mary’s birth canal, he did so as one fully human, but also as one fully God.

    To separate the human and divine natures of Christ the way Nestorius did is to incorrectly divide Jesus into two persons, one divine and one human.

    Thus, affirming Mary as the mother of God has more to do with who Jesus is, than who Mary is.
