Your church never told you; you mean .<quoted text>
First of all, I recognize I'm setting myself up for a scripture bludgeoning from you.
BUT, you asked what my opinion is on the word 'knew' in Genesis.
To me, it doesn't have to mean automatic sexual relations. In fact, it doesn't have to mean sexual relations at all.
It COULD be implied as such and I wouldn't blame anyone if they thought that.
With Mary, it wasn't taught that she bore any child, but Jesus.... Regardless of how the Evangelicals have decided about words in scripture.
It was never taught Chuck.
The Bible says that Mary had other Child.
" HEY READ ALL ABOUT IT IN THE BIBLE
THE BIBLE SAYS MARY HAD OTHER CHILDREN."
