Emcee...the only thing about my coffee break that is over is that recently I found out that Starbucks donates millions of dollars a year to abortion and gay rights, so I am boycotting them. But, other than that...bring on the java!

Holly :: Your high octane Coffee Break is over.
---Emcee on 10/1/07

Well Emcee...I am an American and we are more fond of coffee than tea. I am glad to be compared to coffee (which as you have stated is a stimulant) because I pray that my posts do stimulate people to seek God further and dig in deeper to the Word of God to seek out HIS truth, not man's doctrines or ways. May I be not just coffee...but espresso (high octane coffee)!

Mary had to be pure to give birth to God incarnate. Jesus' Blood was pure the only way our sins could be forgiven. Jesus was sinless period the only way our sins could be forgiven. If you look around you at this sinful world, you could see and understand what I am saying here.
---catherine on 10/1/07

Andrea, FYI, the Catholic Church NEVER removed the second commandment. It is still in our Bibles just where it belongs and it is even in our Catechism. We Catholics are forbidden to practice idolatry in any form.

And no I am not worried about offending God. How could Jesus be upset with me maintaining communication with other members of His Own Body? It was His idea that we should work together. And it is not like I ever put Mary before Jesus, or in His place.
---lorra8574 on 9/30/07

Andrea, Protestants get more worked up over Mary than Catholics. Sure, there are practices that seem odd, but they are all extra. During the Mass, you will not usually hear a word about Mary unless she is in the scriptures being read. In the official Catechism, Mary is mentioned briefly a few times out of a massive book that is dominated by God and the scriptures. We have some prayers to Mary, but we have books full of prayers to Jesus.
---lorra8574 on 9/30/07

Andrea, much of what Catholics believe about Mary stems from what we believe about Jesus and from what is written in the scriptures. Our view of Mary is not so alien or pagan as you might think, if you ever got to know it.

For example, we hold that Mary is the mother of God, NOT because we think that she is a deity (we don't), but because we believe that Jesus is God, it is just that simple. His divinity was questioned, that is why this doctrine was formed.

---Emcee on 9/29/07

lorra- the second commandment - the one the RCC removed - bowing to any form (man/woman) is idolatry.

I don't worry about crowns

do you ever worry that praying to Mary may offend God?

do you concern yourself with Jesus Christ?
---Andrea on 9/29/07

Because she was pure. And God could not have come through a unpure person.
---Bennie on 9/29/07

Andrea, giving honour to the Lord's mother is a lot different from giving honour to a tree that did not give birth to the Messiah, or raise Him, or stay with Him when He died in agony upon the cross.

The Bible says that some Christians will obtain crowns in Heaven, that is one of our goals. I am guessing that you have given up on that idea.
---lorra8574 on 9/29/07

Amen RitaH...I am in agreement with that prayer you said for Emcee. Lord, enlighten him with Your truth!
---Holly4jc on 9/29/07

Emcee, I agree with what Alan said to you below. Those shoes of yours might be comfortable now but will lead you to destruction if you continue to give Mary something that is not her due. You say "its no shame if realisation suddenly comes upon you". That's true and I hope and pray that realisation (of the truth) will come upon you. Suddenly or slowly it doesn't matter but I trust you will get that realisation soon.

some of the crowns put on these Mary statues are jewel encrusted.

the bible says we are not to bow to any thing made in the likeness of man/woman or beast - the pope knows this and you defend it

some day he'll defend it to the lord

if I go outside and crown a tree- pray to it and bow to it - well you can pretty much be certain its worship

call it what you want - its still worship!

think of the Israelites and how they burned incense to other gods - how did God react?
---Andrea on 9/28/07

Alan OF UK:: I understand & know where you are coming from.The shoes I use are mine suitable for my walk & discernment in this life.They do not pinch & comfortable.Every one must seek diligently and its no shame if realisation suddenly comes upon you But Pray & seek we must Till the Divine Lord sees from above "Is he for saving"then you get that call or else you go with the flotsam & jetsam.Of course this is my active mind rambling.
---Emcee on 9/28/07

Andrea, Pope JPII did dedicate his Pontificate to Mary. Now, if a hospital board decides to dedicate the hospital to a beloved volunteer and perhaps even name the cafeteria after her (with her photo and a plaque) - does the hospital cease to be a hospital? Does the mandate to heal change? Does this affect the ownership of the hospital in any way? Or how it is run? The answer to this is NO. So if we can do this in the secular world without the label of idolatry, why should the rules change with Mary?
---lorra8574 on 9/28/07

Andrea P2: Now as for the statue, and your scripture quotes - one, Catholics do not think that Mary is a goddess, two, Catholics do not believe that the statue itself has any powers, three, the Bible goes to great lengths to show what true idolatry is and your examples alone do not cut it - The Bible has shown that statues are not in themselves a sin, nor is bowing - it is the intent that matters. God looks at the heart.

She was a virgin because she could not be spoiled by being with a man. That was the miracle that He was born of a woman who had no prior time with a man and so God overshadowed her and LOVE was conceived in her. The awesome thought of it. She a young woman who was chosen by God to bring into this world the savior of the world. So much love that we can't even understand it all. She found favor with God and He used her for us. Cool.

---Andrea on 9/28/07

Emcee ... Yes Mary submitted to God's will to become Jesus' earthly mother, and thus was the woman who fulfilled the prophecy.
I don't bash her at all for doing that.
But Jesus isGod and our Saviour, and we can talk to Him direct.

Helen you are so right...Jesus Christ did not have a "part" in all of God's plan...He was the main event...we are the ones who have "parts" and that includes Mary. God does not NEED us to do anything, He is fully capable of doing whatever needs to be done without us. He CHOOSES to use us and include us in HIS plans. We are given the honor to serve HIM, not the other way around.
---Holly4jc on 9/27/07

Mary was highly favored by God to be the woman to give birth to God. It was not the actually birth that was so amazing anyways it was the conception. God chosed Mary. Mary was a virgin. Mary loved God. Mary wanted to please God. She accepted and obeyed God. Mary was indeed higly favored by God. What is so complicated about all of this? God knew what He was doing. This is all I can say about Mary at this time. Except she was pure. Knowing God she had to be pure. The mother of God.
---catherine on 9/27/07

Emcee ... All I can say is that I used the word "seems" because that is the impression your words give ... that you reagrd Mary as being the person who used Jesus as the tool to conquer Satan.
But that gives the wrong emphasis ... it was God (who is Jesus) who planned the salvation, and used Mary to bear jesus earthly body.

Emcee .. the root of our difference appears to be that you say "she shall crush your head" whereas my Bible says "her seed shal crush your head"
Your version seems (to me anyway) to say that Mary is the important one, and that she used Jesus as her tool to fight with satan.
---alan_of_UK on 9/27/07

Andrea, not according to the dictionary. But to be more politically correct. Catholics ask Mary and saints to pray for us, not worship her or them.

And there is a difference between dying for something you know to be true, and something that you cannot be certain about. The martyrs died knowing that Christ had already come and died for them. Mary risked her life for an Angel she could only hope was from God.

Lorra8574 - ("Helen and Andrea, there is no denying the importance and necessity of Christ's part in this.") -- Jesus Christ did NOT "play a part" in anything. His whole purpose of coming into this world was to be crucified on the Cross for the sin of the world. It is clear you do not know Him.

1) Lorra...I was brought up Jewish (my mom's side) and also forced into a satanic cult by my dad. I suffered satanic ritual abuse as well as having been forced into a blood covenant with satan at a very early age. I was impregnated by my dad to bring glory to him within the cult and for him to move up in position. I am telling you all this to say the following: when I gave my life to Jesus, I took a very big risk. I was afraid to tell my Jewish family because as far as Jesus goes,

2) well I might as well have signed up with Hitler. And the satanic side, the fact that I had been GIVEN to satan by blood covenant and now I was in a new blood covenant with Jesus, well...I can't tell you how many nights I was literally tormented by actual demons in my room, doing everything to me from trying to kill me to rape me, all because I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. They tormented me a million times more AFTER I gave my life to Jesus than before. Yet I did not give up or turn away...

3) ...from Jesus, no matter how terrifying my demonic experiences were. Satan does not take it lightly when one who was given to him in covenant leaves his kingdom...maybe he goes after the 1 and leaves the 99, just like Jesus. To go from his camp over to his enemy's camp (Jesus) really, really makes him angry and he comes at you with a vengence, more so than if you had not been in a blood covenant with him. So...I know what it's like to do the "hard" thing and say "yes" to Jesus...

4) ...and risk my can never know how terrifying it is to have demons tormenting you and you feeling like they can kill you at any moment. It's not an easy thing to endure, holding onto Jesus no matter what the devil throws at you. I hope no one else ever has to go through it. Many take risks serving Jesus and saying "yes" to God's calling, but through it all, it is only by the power of the Holy Spirit and the strength that God gives us that we make it through, just as Mary did. :-)
---Holly4jc on 9/26/07

Mary risked her life - many matyrs gave their lives for the gospel - over 5 million at the hands of the RCC

and the attitude that protestants don't regard Mary highly is wrong

Remember them - yes
be grateful to them - yes

what you pray to - you worship
---Andrea on 9/26/07

Helen and Andrea, there is no denying the importance and necessity of Christ's part in this. But, if you understood the risk that Mary took with her Yes, you might appreciate that what she did showed the ultimate faith in God. It was no easy task and few women would have done it under those conditions.

Lorra8574 - "For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man's obedience many will be made righteous" (Romans 5:19). This verse speaks of firstly Adam, then Jesus Christ who is the Second Adam. The only thing Mary did was say yes when the angel told her she would conceive the Son of God. You constantly put Mary where she does not belong.

---Holly4jc on 9/26/07

Alan, I would like to point out that sin entered the world through disobedience, and it was Mary's obedience that allowed Jesus to enter the world (His plan, not ours or hers) to redeem us. It was necessary that a human woman should undo what Eve had done by being faithful, just as it was necessary that a human man should be obedient unto death to undo Adam's sin. Jesus fulfilled the greater part and is our redeemer, but He chose to do this through Mary.

Alan of Uk::I explained more often than Not Jesus is our Saviour. He shows us the way. Jesus never will entertain sin.He abhors sin.He saved himself as a Man,yes!

3) then technically...Jesus came through her womb down through the ages...her womb birthed generations that would eventually birth the Messiah, through Mary's womb. Without there being an "Eve" there would be no humanity and hence, no Mary and no reason for Jesus to have been born. That is of course unless Eve refused God's plan and God had to create another Eve...but I sincerely doubt that would have happened, for God knows the end from the beginning.

---Emcee on 9/25/07

Holly4JC, it is ironic that the sinner, Eve, is recognised as the mother of all humanity by virtue of her being first. This is a great honour than only Eve can claim, even though this honour has nothing to do with anything other than being the first woman - a stroke of luck.

But when it comes to Mary, so many dismiss her as nothing - as if she played a role no different than any of us play. True, Catholics do use her as a role model, but none of us can claim to be mother of the Messiah.

Mark V, do you not believe that Jesus is the Word that was in the Beginning with God and was God? Of course Jesus predates Mary, He created her.

But some do not understand the importance we put on Christ.
---lorra8574 on 9/25/07

Holly4JC, it is true, because of Christ's death on the Cross, we are each redeemed and have the opportunity to say "yes" to Jesus, instead of "yes" to sin. But it was Mary that God chose to give birth to the Messiah. It was Mary that the Angel appeared to. And, it was Mary that said "yes". She could have said no, and that would have been a sign that we were not ready to be redeemed, but God knew that Mary would say yes, but did not force her.
