I spent my day reading.
Non-Catholics have a difficult time seeing that the Blessed Mother is nothing more than a sister in Christ. Some in their understanding know the Bible says to call her Blessed. But it just doesn't register in the heart.
I think also it is a form of secular relativism, that everyone is the same, which also goes along with the Bible verse always quoted(lol) "everyone has sinned".... These together form a sort of spiritual darkness.
I also think it is due to the emphasis on a personal relationship with God which tends toward being exclusive, rather than inclusive.
When one's own salvation takes priority over God's Will, that was done by Jesus, there is a sort of isolation. Catholics of course find this foreign because of the unity in the Body of Triumphant, Militant, and Suffering.
It's interesting that you bring up the exclusivity of a personal relationship with God that Protestants take such pride in. I've been noticing in recent readings here and there that while this can sound wonderful to some, it really is contrary to the very nature of God and the teachings of Christ. God is, after all, relationship....Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Christ taught love of God, other, then self....service not selfishness. Love cannot survive in isolation. The Body of Christ is in a word Communion.

Hey Regina, that is what I've been trying to tell you, we are all one in the Lord, of the One same Spirit, and yes literally in Communion with each other. well not you and me but me and my brothers and sisters, hope and pray you were in there though:)

The Blessed Mary was a devoted Jew, as exemplified by the Presentation, and attendence at the Feasts. And with all Jews they expected the Messiah.
She knew the scriptures.
She accepted by faith, she would bear the Messiah.
Isaiah 53 she knew, and accepted her son would be the Suffering Servant....therefore she knew...."7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth."
And this was done in the instant acceptance by her faith. So she knew Jesus would die in a terrible way, but was thankful and rejoiced in God her Savior, named Jesus.
Appreciate your response...but it does not change the truth...per Scripture:

213

There is no Scripture that even hints of Mary "offering her son as a sacrifice".....

It does teach: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

No one challenges the Bible. Your views added to the Bible..., we know them well.(smile), and challenge them. It always goes back to this with you.
Remember while talking with Nicodemus, Jesus said,
John 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
In other words, you don't know who, what, where, when, one is born of the Spirit....
Here is your error, You seem to think, as many Protestants that being born again has to be some very dramatic event, when it can be more quiet than a whisper.
One does not have to go screaming up and down the aisles of a church, or go to an altar call to be born again. It can be done so quietly by God that it is not noticeable. Many virtuous people may be born again is such a way....

IF YOU ARE LIVING BY THE BIBLE ..WHERE IS YOUR FRUITS...?

Jesus said

Mat_7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS...

Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is

love,

joy,

peace,

longsuffering,

gentleness,

goodness,

faith,

Gal 5:23

Meekness,

temperance:

against such there is no law.


Gal 5:24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Gal 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

QUESTION ..

HOW CAN YOU LIVE BY THE SPIRIT IF YOU ARE NOT BORN AGAIN OF THE SPIRIT?

WHY NOT OBEY JESUS AND STOP YOUR CONFUSION OF FACE.

___

JESUS SAID...

Joh 3:3 JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HIM, VERILY, VERILY I SAY UNTO THEE...EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN,HE CANNOT SEE...

... properly to see (literally or figuratively); by implication (in the perfect only) to know:- be aware, behold, X can (+ not tell), consider,(have) known (-ledge), look (on), perceive, see, be sure, tell, understand, wist, wot. Compare G3700.

As for St. Joseph...not much in scripture on this guy. The last thing in bible about him was when Jesus escaped from Mary & Joseph and they searched and searched for him finding him in the temple, teaching the priests. It's believed that Joseph passed away after that. But what better way to go than being close to Jesus and Mary. Keep in mind that Joseph was not his father, but that God is his father. I know, it's all a mystery. So Michael, I don't believe the church says no just to upset those like you. If there's no other info out there, they do not make it up as I believe other religious mere mortals may, they say nothing because nothing more is known. Joseph was quite old when he married Mary, he was married for 50 yrs. with children and his wife died.
Those in our church know lots more info. than I. yes, I depend on those folks for their knowledge and guidance.
Keep in mind, God loves you.
Catholic Girl, you seem to know your stuff. I learn a lot from you, thanks. One of many things that puzzle me about Mary. Jesus never once said to pray to her for special favors, plus her "Assumption"...pun intended, but that's pure "assumption", as the bible never mentions her death. She (according to Catholic teaching) "rose bodily" into heaven - how could a material thing be in a spiritual dwelling? and then they claimed she was crowned - spiritually perhaps, but a CROWN in heaven? If they can assume such things, what else can they assume? Do you see why I doubt? They even claim that because she was born sans original sin, she suffered no pain in childbirth...that's a story made up to justify why childbirth hurts - that dang old Eve did it again. Mary most likely gave birth just like any other woman - maybe even got stretch marks and that is NOT an insult.

havent you leanrned that you cant beleive anythingthat robert f says? his knowledge is limited for certain.

even the disciples didnt KNOW that he was to be crucified and rise again.

John 20:9:

Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; for as yet they did not understand the scripture, that he must rise from the dead.

Luke also indicated that the disciples of Jesus had not expected his resurrection, for Luke said that after Peter looked inside at the linen cloths, "he went home, wondering at that which had come to pass" (24:12). Numerous references to the apostles' skepticism of a resurrection appear elsewhere in the New Testament (Lk. 24:11,38; Jn. 20:24-25; Matt. 28:17).

mary didnt know either and robert always assumes something that isnt correct, and where he comes up with this foolishness is beyond me. it certainly doesnt come from God's Word.

I understand what you are saying. But don't you think she has a unique position? She is to Jesus the only earthly mother He had....And that he was under her care as a child....Is there anyone else on this earth given by God such a grace and such an honor and responibiliy?
LOL, mary doesnt even begin to compare with Abraham, first he left his home obeying the Lord, then most of all, he was willing to give up his son, the son that he loved so much.

key words for u, robert.[willing to give up].

while mary had no choice in the matter, Jesus was taken by force.

therefore in the eyes of God, Abraham was much more the better servant than mary could ever be
for it is written, it is better to Obey than to sacrifice(thats in the Bible for you robert and not changed by me).and since I love the OT, you can find it there.

[maybe even got stretch marks ]. Nah, couldnt happen to Catholic Mary. she retained a perfect figure and never even had a baby bump as Robert will attest to.

it is pathetic how catholics make her into something she would never have agreed to. in my reading of Mary, I find her to be a very humble young woman, willing to be the surrogate mom of jesus,at least until the day of His death, then like all Parents, her heart was broken.
