Mary, The Mother of God?

Mary, the Mother of God?

The view from the Roman Catholic Church is that Mary is the Mother of God. Are we to believe this? Are we to take our eyes off of Jesus and worship Mary?
Hebrews 12:2 says otherwise….”2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Before I go any further let’s read what comes directly from the Roman Catholic Church…
From Vatican Collection Volume 1, Vatican Council II, The Conciliar and Post Conciliar documents. General Editor Austin Flannery, O.P. New revised edition 1992; Costello publishing company, Northport, New York. 1992 pages 420-421 (par. 65)

65. But while in the most Blessed Virgin the church has already reached that perfection whereby she exists without spot or wrinkle (cf. Eph. 5:27), the faithful still strive to conquer sin and increase in holiness. And so they turn their eyes to Mary who shines forth to the whole community of the elect as the model of virtues. Devoutly meditating on her and contemplating her in the light of the Word made man, the Church reverently penetrates more deeply into the great mystery of the Incarnation and becomes more and more like her spouse. Having entered deeply into the history of salvation, Mary, in a way, unites in her person and re-echoes the most important doctrines of the Faith: and when she is the subject of preaching and worship she prompts the faithful to come to her son, to his sacrifice and to the love of the Father. Seeking after the glory of Christ, the Church becomes more like her lofty type, and continually progresses in faith, hope and charity, seeking and doing the will of God in all things. The Church, therefore, in her apostolic work too, rightly looks to her who gave birth to Christ, who was thus conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, in order that through the church he could be born and increase in the hearts of the faithful. In her life the Virgin has been a model of that motherly love with which all who joined in the church’s apostolic mission for the regeneration of mankind should be animated.

IV. THE CULT OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN IN THE CHURCH1
66. Mary has by grace been exalted above all angels and men to a place second only to her Son, as the most holy Mother of God who was involved in the mysteries of Christ: she is rightly honored by a special cult in the Church. From the earliest times the Blessed Virgin is honored under the title of Mother of God, whose protection the faithful take refuge together in prayer in all their perils and needs. Accordingly, following the Council of Ephesus, there was a remarkable growth in the cult of the people of God towards Mary, in veneration and love, in invocation and imitation, according to her own prophetic words: “all generations shall call me Blessed, because he that is mighty hath done great things to me,” (Luke 1:48).

This is completely unbiblical.

“Mary has by grace been exalted above all angels and men to a place second only to her Son” Where is this found in the Bible?
“as the most holy Mother of God who was involved in the mysteries of Christ” Mary was the Mother of the human nature of Jesus, not the Mother of God. Remember that Jesus had two natures, fully God and fully Human known as the Hypostatic Union. She is the Mother of the Human part of Jesus.
Don’t get me wrong, Mary was a woman of high virtue, however the Roman Catholic Church wants you to believe that she is at the level of Goddess and Mediatrix, (Catechism of the Catholic Church paragraph 969), (CCC 966), (CCC 974) and (Vatican II, Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, par. 66)

I believe that it is not only unbiblical but heretical and the work of demonic forces. If it cannot be backed by Biblical scripture, then where does it come from? If you are a Roman Catholic, I challenge you to seek the truth and pray on this.

God Bless!

    “That’s LOVE” “They talk about their damn Church” Am I missing something here, or are you showing me how much you love me, as “your neighbor?” Just a question. God Bless, SR

  2. That is correct Bubba, the Catholic Church, the Baptist Church, Methodist, Muslim, Hindu, whatever is all Colt And Is false Doctorine they are all totally straying away from everything that Jesus teaches and That’s LOVE for they talk about there damn Church and how cardinals need to stay faithful or Baptist say how you need come church more or your going Hell! What’s funny is Religion is Man Made For Jesus was only one Belief that’s LOVE and LOVE thy neighbor those are the only TWO commandments that Exist on this earth! Also every Single Person Preaching from Bible Pope everyone that claims they know the bible! Well I know The Father said I will make my New Covenant with them and I will write my thoughts on there mind and will I speak my word into their hearts only! And they shall make new again and This will be An Everlasting covenant! For everyone that had come before them will had prophet lies in my name Thus The Lord says! For they will walk in LOVE and that’s what’s going to Save the world LOVE for LOVE is the most powerful element on earth it’s soo strong it can resurrect the dead for we have to Lead the way in true doctrine of LOVE and remember everything that the bible says everyone thinks they know more then the other persons and that’s totally not just! For everyone is going to understand it different, NO MAN can earn, or pay to learn the word of GOD for no matter how many Theology degrees you have! Or Pope Benedict thinks he has Doesn’t matter bc GOD soo willing gifts that blessing not colleges or preachers ect! Now I’m saying that bc Jesus Christ speaks through all of us! And he is Universal. Jesus doesn’t even judge you if you don’t believe in him! He only operates in WILL LOVE! WILL FORGIVENESS! And those two only will he Only Speak of and in WILL manner! No matter how bad the world tells you or church tells you how bad you are or LIE to you about SIN or the devil bc they are fools and don’t know True Love or doctrine bc the Bible only talks about Devil one or two times in whole freaking bible! And also they LIED to you about Lucifer being Gods right hand angel and being cast out heaven! The Catholics made that up! Lol my Holy Bible guys doesnt say that no where! And so what are they doing adding words to the Fathers word bc they don’t know ne better but to boast of themsleves controlling you to manipulate your mind! Also guys I only LOVE I would never speak nothing but the facts and I won’t say their wrong or right bc I will just let them judge themselves into believing false lies! What if their never was ever SIN on this Earth! What if EVE never ate the apple and Adam was free of sin! Thank about it guys EVE was created out of ADAM! Ok think about this God took ATOM that’s Adam an ATOM then God took ADAM/ATOM and took a RIB/RNA out of ADAM to make EVE/DNA now you got two co-existing molecules to form Matter but before you can have a community of people all over the World the Good LORD had to flood the earth and spread his two seeds bc without Water will you ain’t got Life. Then all animals two of every kind ok All that means is EVE/ADAM and the whole earth Nature included animals started Pairing and making many different species and creatures first Human wasnt the first people on this planet People serious are yall that brainwashed i mean the Bible is that mysterious where The church has perpetrated fallacy and lies for thousands of years and lied bc they want power control! Remember in Ezekiel it tells you exactly what specie we came from 4 living creatures wheel inside wheel eyes and talks about how those 4 living creatures also being the Likeness in MAN! Ok guys anyways ill let y’all figure rest out and remember! Remember after he flooded earth he made Adam2 EVE2 and that was birth of Man and Women still free of SIN know sin bc remember ADAM2 make likeness out of his son and he will know my LOVE for I will be his father and he shall be my Son! So EVE is Jesus Mom and she is A Marry of a person! Ok so just last little fact of LOVE for y’all when Jesus Died on cross thAt Was SIN he was SIN he died for all SINS be forgiven

  3. Amen. I pray they find their way.
