If Mary is God's Mother, who is God's Father??
God was before Mary , she can't be God's child and His Mother.
She isn't the Holy Spirits spouse. She was married to Joseph.
No she wasn't. She was 12-14 years old and "betrothed" to Joseph.
Do you know what that word means? "bethrothed"

The catholic doctrine polluted the teachings of Jesus,
With false teachers and false prophets.
And traditions of man made rituals .
They worship God with their lips , but their heart is far from Him
You deny the Incarnation. Therefore, you are not a Christian.
Your warped opinion and lies mean nothing to me.

Why you mad bro? By your logic, we can say that Jesus (divine) did not suffer for our sins on the cross. By your logic, it was Jesus (flesh) that suffered for us. Gee, I wonder why his whole body and soul were resurrected? When did they come together to become body(flesh) and soul(divine)? It makes no sense that you believe that there are 3 persons in one God and then in the next breath say that Jesus' flesh was separate from His divinity.
*********
Pedro, when your tooth aches, your whole body aches, and your spirit/soul feel depressed.
When Jesus suffered on the cross, His whole being 'suffered'. That physical body BELONGED to Jesus, and, as a result of His Presence in it, it was resurrected immortal.
When people allow Him to dwell in them, and die in faith, they too will be raised in an immortal body.
God is creating us to be an immortal body (if the 'clay' yields to Him)...and He is not finished with us yet.

LTM said that Mary gave birth only the the flesh of Jesus. How can you separate what is the flesh of Jesus with what is his divinity? This was my original question to LTM. By her logic, the Divine Jesus, our Lord and Savior did not suffer on the cross, only his flesh did. You see where I'm coming from? Don't know where LTM is coming from, the Nestorius belief that Jesus' flesh can be separate from His divinity was settled centuries ago. That some people still come up with it is beyond common sense and understanding. I do understand that someone would want to lower Mary's status by saying that she only gave birth to Jesus' flesh, but you cannot, no matter how much you try, separate His flesh from His Divinity, it leaves too many questions unanswered, just like the simple one I asked.
Don't be mad bro. Jesus loves us all.

who="Preston" like always, you have things BACKWARDS. we are to be like HIM not the other way around.

**********

True. He came without sin, so that we could become LIKE HIM.

Ro. 8:29 For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON,(SO) that HE might be the FIRSTBORN among many brethren.

Col. 1:15 (Jesus) Who is the image of the invisible God, the FIRSTBORN of every creature. Verse 18 And He is the HEAD of the body, THE CHURCH: Who is the beginning, the FIRSTBORN from the dead...

Okay, folks, you're called to make a decision. Who will you stand up for? Jesus.......or Preston? The freedom of the Holy Spirit does not mean you are free to redefine Christianity.
we are called Christians because we [follow] him and Jesus is not called reginians or prestonians, but I should not expect you to understand correct reasoning since you are a catholic.

Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant(US) is not greater than his lord(JESUS)

When he appeared in human form,

He also said that Jesus was *not* like us (and he did not mean in sin). Yes, he is redefining Christian doctrine. I know how much it hurts you to disagree with another anti-Catholic, but you are either a Christian or you're not. If you're going to apply your personal opinion to Christian teaching, making a few tweaks here and there, then you are not a Christian. There's no in-between. Take a stand for Christ or join the ranks of the unbelievers. It matters that much, Kay.

Pedro, Mary gave birth to Jesus. He was WHOLE, not a part person. But mothers nor fathers create the spirit/soul of their children. In fact, God calls them 'MY children'.

Mary didn't 'make' God; she carried Him while He was being clothed with flesh. You were a living spirit before you were planted in your mothers body...as we all were.

Are you trying to invoke mob rule as correct?
If so you are not really interested in truth or actuality...just confirmation of your bias in the expectation that you have estimated there will be sufficient support for that bias---whether right or wrong.
Are you planning to burn him as well when you have reached a consensus?
Sounds like the mentality of the "inquisition" to me!

See that you all follow the bishop, even as Jesus Christ does the Father, and the presbytery as you would the apostles; and reverence the deacons, as being the institution of God. Let no man do anything connected with the Church without the bishop. Let that be deemed a proper Eucharist, which is [administered] either by the bishop, or by one to whom he has entrusted it. Wherever the bishop shall appear, there let the multitude [of the people] also be; even as, wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church. It is not lawful without the bishop either to baptize or to celebrate a love-feast; but whatsoever he shall approve of, that is also pleasing to God, so that everything that is done may be secure and valid.
St. Ignatius of Antioch, "Epistle to the Smyrnaeans," c. 105 A.D.

"The church of God that sojourns at Smyrna, to the church of God sojourning in Philomelium - and to all of the congregations of the holy and Catholic Church in every place." St. Polycarp, "The Martyrdom of St. Polycarp," c. 135 A.D.

"Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Savior of our souls, the Governor of our bodies, and the Shepherd of the Catholic Church throughout the world." St. Polycarp, "The Martyrdom Of St. Polycarp," c. 135 A.D.

Yes, I've always been one for the truth and don't back down to the non-believers who come here with their lies. However, do keep your "love" to yourself. Life is hard enough.

The bishops fought over it for over 400 year.
It was never sensible and correct then, and still is unacceptable now, It is scientifically impossible, and therefor merely religious speculation in a desperate attempt to "own" divinity.
The very history of the progression of how it was all achieved by the church shows it to be nefarious in it's conclusion.
