You can't show any of that from scripture. What kind of sola scripturist are you anyway?
Show me a verse where Mary gave birth to anybody but Jesus.
dont act so stupid. do you think that Joseph had them by himself?

that question is about as dumb and dumb can get.

it is almost as bad as saying that mary had an egg and gave herself sperm to Have jesus, which you catholics will probably claim next.

you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned;
so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God,

Nope - blocked because it originated from a different country.

I really don't think Michael would post anything to go against the Topix ToS. I think he is more respectable than most posters here.

It shows in his honesty.

But you seemed to jump right to this conclusion, why?

Enough with your stupid stories. You're a patholigical delusional narcissist.
"I ahv e told you and showed you waht transpires sduring the early stages of pregnancy, I cnat do any more. if you are to dense to undersand, you are to dense. I cant help that."
We both know what transpires in human conception. What you deny is the Incarnation. You deny the conception taking place IN HER WOMB and dream up some fantasy about an embryo being placed there. You deny that Christ was both fully man and God.
Your understanding of how God "used" Mary does play into your salvation because you're denial of the Incarnation makes you a non-Christian, and non-Christians who know the truth and reject it out of some patholigical hatred of the Blessed Virgin aren't saved.

I think you put it well here....But I don't think its a pathological hatred. He just has to according to his opinion have to downplay the Blessed Mary in every way possible. To accept on even one point destroys his entire understanding of Jesus, upon which he believes he is saved....

In short he is in dire straits. He has built up this whole elaborate position. And to admit he doesn't understand, or has misunderstood something as basic as Jesus' humanity, means for him utter devastation.

It is a danger not of faith, but of belief.

Actually, it was a very good question I asked. And one you can't answer.
Its reasonable to think Joseph had children from his first marriage. Its also reasonable...that Joseph (being a devout Jew) would not venture into the Holiest of Arks.
Mary gave birth to Jesus- God made manifest. I can't imagine Joseph thinking its ok to procreate with Mary after God already had.

No "He" didn't. You both have read wa-a-a-a-ay to much into this book's chapter. It isn't even about "Satan".

But what would one expect, when individuals like you believe you are being told something, when in fact, ifyou had read it yourself, it is very clear that it doesn't say what you both think.

I am sorry I disagree....You may love the O.T., as it still remains the promise under the law, but there is something better, the N.T. where the promise is fulfilled in Jesus Christ.
Please note John 10:17-18
" Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father."
It is difficult to explain to you that Jesus was not taken by force, but rather it was his power and will, doing the Will of the Father, which agreed toward His Sacrifice, and Ressurrection.
Those who are born again, know that they must sacrifice themselvs in order for the new creature to live....
So again, I say to you, Repent and be born again.
you are the idiot that said mary sacrificed her son, not me.

and sorry, but it isnt the least difficult to explain that Jesu was not taken by force. I love the OT but I am well versed in the NT also.unlike you.all a person has to do is read about the garden incident(I aint talking about ricky nelson and the [garden party]either

your words"Those who are born again, know that they must sacrifice themselvs in order for the new creature to live...."

that is about as dumb as clays statement, do you catholics take stupity 202 in your sunday school classes?

tHE "new creature" lives because he died and it is NOTHING THAT WE DO OR HAVE DONE.as every Born Again Chrsitan willa ttest to

ROBERT, YOU TRY AND ACT LIKE YOU ARE SMART AND ALL IT DOES IS SHOW HOW IGNORANT THAT YOU ARE.

Michael says..Come on Claypool!....Its all SPECULATION! and WISHFUL THINKING! ONLY! because it doesn't jibe with catholic ONLY teachings.

...the bible doesn't say that does it Clay?

....But the bible often mentions her other siblings, St Paul says James was the brother of the Lord, but you don't want to believe that.

Remember your own catholic fathers wrote all this stuff.

BUSTED!

lets look at what God says about mary. not robert.

Luk 2:48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto
him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought
thee sorrowing.
Luk 2:49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I
must be about my Father's business?
Luk 2:50 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.

This alone proves that Mary did not fully understand the mission that Jesus was to fulfill.

looks like robert is either ignorant or lying. one or the other. both wrong in the eyes of God.

I understand his humanity and how it evolves,something you dont robert f.lol look at how the embryo begins to function as part of the woman(humanity)

1) If you say you hate perverted priests, they say you hate their church.

2) If you say you aren't catholic, they say you hate God.

3) If you disagree with them, they say you hate their church and you hate God.

Its laughable, how much FEAR they instill in themselves.

Although I did notice another claim you know what "God" is doing.
Shame on you.
For the majority of RCC history, our good friend's words could have caused him to be burned at the stake and his entire estate turned over to the Church.

Oh that dang Reformation and anti-catholic Bill of Rights. Dang it.

You really need to start explaining sola scripture Preston. It seems your entire Christian faith is based on how you...and YOU only see the Bible. That in itself is not Biblical.

How can you base so much on something that was never even taught by Jesus Christ Himself?

Oh don't feel sorry for me Chuck. Im not the one lost in the world of scripture alone!

Of Course Christ crushed Satan by going to the Cross. But He DID need help from Mary. We all did. Had she said no to the Angel, Christ would not have come into this world. Hello??
