Mary is the mother of God. This statement is not true and nowhere to be found in the whole scripture. Make a search in the Bible for the word “mother of god” and it will yield a negative result and then again try searching the exact phrase “mother of Jesus” in the King James Version of the Bible and it will show at least three (3) verses.
Mary can never be the mother of God for Jesus Christ as God is the begotten son born way ahead of Abraham.
Jn 8:58 Jesus said to them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Before Abraham was, I am.
Heb 1:5 For to which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
There is a great difference between veneration and admiration. I may admire Jose Rizal for his martyrdom while observing the images of his life, but I’m not about to pray to his statue for help in life for that would be veneration. This is exactly what Idolaters do with their images and statues for these symbols are more than metal, plastic, clay and paint and they are powerful icons with a sacred presence to them.
Ps 115:4 Their idols are silver and gold; the work of men’s hands.
Ps 115:5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
Ps 115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
Ps 115:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
Ps 115:8 They that make them are like them; so is every one that trusteth in them.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. They changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping animals.
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
The truth about the faith of the Idolaters is that, they are as dry stems taken before the wind, and as dry grass taken away by storm. So that hearing news of a statue bleeding or crying, off they went and pray and worship. Take note of this warning coming from the Bible on hand.
Revelation 13:13-15 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
Imagine a fire coming down from heaven and a talking image of the beast that must be worship? Who can resist this great deception, unless you are warned of its existence?
Revelation 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Presently, who has the mark in their forehead and right hand? Your guess is as good as mine. 🙂 My friend said, but I’m left handed! Whatever…..
