Nicole_Lacey:

What I meant was that, except for one half of the DNA, all the infrastructure for cell growth is in the egg (e.g. nucleus, mitochondria, etc.). None of that is in the sperm.

Normally, two of most chromosomes are necessary, and the egg only has one of each, but in parthenogenesis (common in lizards but not mammals), those are duplicated, which can create an entire child from the mother. However, the child must be female, as the mother lacks a Y chromosome.

So I prefer to continue to say that we all KNOW that Jesus has 100% DNA from Mary.

Which discussion is purely academic, in that it attempts to deal with minute scientific details of something that is admittedly scientifically impossible anyway.
---StrongAxe on 1/6/16


Marys ovulation was normal and typical, her ovary released a mature egg, as it traveled down the Fallopian tube, God inseminated the egg by creating the gamete cell that would unite with her fertile egg, making it now a fertilized egg, which then attached itself to the uterine wall, and the pregnancy began.

Nicole, I also agree with this, as do many other CHRISTIANS, who find nothing sinful or evil in this process.

Where you get this is sinful is beyond understanding, except in your own mind, and somehow interferes with your understanding of the incarnation of Jesus Christ based possibly on the RCC's theory, because maybe the MOTHER OF GOD which you call her, has put her into a God category herself .....who knows.
---kathr4453 on 1/6/16


Kathr, no pride. I keep saying it is a mystery.
Jesus said "This generation demands signs, but none will be given to it except the sign of Jonah."

Jesus could have enlighten them but REFUSED.

Artificially insemination is a Grave Sin.


StrongAxe, you are incorrect when you said a women has everything in a egg. She does not. The egg only has 1/2 contribution to life designed by God.

So I prefer to continue to say that we all KNOW that Jesus has 100% DNA from Mary.
And the Spirit mysteriously made the body taken from Mary as a Man so it's Body would qualifies to be the Lamb Sacrifice.

Let God be God and us mere humans know OUR LIMITATIONS including in knowledge of Him.
---Nicole_Lacey on 1/5/16


Nicole_Lacey:

You said: Where did Adam's DNA come from?

God formed Adam entirely from the earth. Somehow, through processes not explained in detail, non-living matter became living matter, including all the chemical processes therein.

Jesus, on the other hand, was NOT formed this way. He was born of a woman, as everyone else is.

The fact that women have only eggs is not important, because eggs contain everything necessary to produce a human being. Sperm provide only DNA. That eggs have only X chromosomes and cannot produce Y IS important. If Jesus had a Y chromosome, it wasn't from Mary, and if he didn't have one, he was a woman. Which of these do you prefer?
---StrongAxe on 1/4/16


When Jesus comes back, maybe you might want to check his dna. you might also ask him if Mary died, or any other "important questions" you might have.
Never mind that Peter said "And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation"
---michael_e on 1/2/16




Nicole, let me ask you this.......when women are artificially enceminated ( sp) and the seed is not their husbands, are they actually having relations with the donor? I don't, however the child will still have it's donates DNA. BUT for some reason you believe the creator of the whole universe, God is not capable of transforming the WORD into a seed ...sperm? God who raised the dead, turned water into wine? YOU SAID, which I disputed, "God put Jesus BODY in Mary's womb" before He even had a BODY. But say He can't put the WORD, also referred to in scripture as SEED in Mary's egg? Did she carry for 9 months?

Why do you have to argue with something even YOU say is a mystery YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND. Is it PRIDE Nicole?
---kathr4453 on 1/3/16


StrongAxe, as I answered you as well. Where did Adam's DNA come from?

If we follow your logic, women only have eggs.
Are you suggesting that the Holy Spirit provided the sperm? No!

Jesus only has DNA from Mary.

I can't imagine how we landed on the Moon. But we did.
Just because my simple mind can't explain the method, it doesn't mean it didn't happen.

In 1991, I had a Chemist College Professor who spent his summer months with NASA.
Doing what we asked him?
He told us they were sending an aircraft to Mars with a camera attached for us to see it's landing within 20 years.

We literally laughed at him.
He told us to wait and see who will be laughing in 20 years.

He was right and we were wrong.

As I wrote to Cluny on another blog:

Yes, but that's not all. Females lack the Y chromosome, and are incapable of giving birth to males. The Y had to come from somewhere, and it sure wasn't from Mary (unless Jesus was really a woman, but anyone who suggests that is opening up another huge can of worms...)

Should we now go back to 4th grade health where we learned how babies come to be?---kathr4453 on 1/1/16

It was in the 6th grade.

Are you suggestion that Mary conceived Jesus naturally with the Holy Spirit?

You have been reading too many Greek's stories.

The Holy Spirit didn't have relations with Mary.

Please stick to the understanding that Jesus has 100% DNA (human) from Mary.

I don't know why you wish to argue that simple fact?
---Nicole_Lacey on 1/1/16


Nicole, sorry, but I don't have a problem with the WORD made flesh. Scripture is very clear that Mary CONCEIVED of the Holy Spirit. The problem may be you don't understand what conception means or even how it works. Should we now go back to 4th grade health where we learned how babies come to be?

---Samuelbb7 on 12/31/15


Kathr, your problem is that you are trying to fit your logic of God becoming Man.

It is a Mystery in which God allows some the gift to understand it.

By the Grace of God, I am SLOWLY understanding the teaching of this Mystery.

The RCC admits it took Her centuries to understand and to teach it to the next generation.

Passing down the Faith isn't a private matter, but a DUTY given to Her by Jesus.

2 Peter 1:20-21

But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.

Note the word 'men'.
---Nicole_Lacey on 12/31/15


\\Kathr, I believe that you are thinking of the phenomena where a person is 'pregnant' with their own twin. It can happen to males and females. Instead of two separate babies one is inside the other.\\

This is called a parasitic twin.

Christ is born! Glorify Him!
---Cluny on 12/30/15


\\There are cases of women who without help from a man have somehow furtilized their own egg, giving birth.\\

Please give the name of one such case, as well as the place and time.

\\ There is a name for it, as I have read about it.\\

Parthenogenisis is the word you're looking for.

What was once called "hermaphrodite" (vulgarly "morphodite") is now called "intersexual."

\\That would make Jesus 100% human. Unless you believe Mary was a GOD. \\

Jesus has 100% human nature added to his 100% Divine nature.

Therefore Mary is Theotokos, or Mother of God, because in His human nature God-made-man experienced the entire human condition.

Christ is born! Glorify Him!
---Cluny on 12/29/15


Kathr, I believe that you are thinking of the phenomena where a person is 'pregnant' with their own twin. It can happen to males and females. Instead of two separate babies one is inside the other. Type "pregnant with own identical twin" into Google and you find much information. The baby inside does not survive and has identical DNA to the boy or girl carrying it.

Nicole, your last post makes no sense. There are cases of women who without help from a man have somehow furtilized their own egg, giving birth. There is a name for it, as I have read about it. Maybe this happens with hermorphedites (sp) who are born both man and woman, and in that case the child would in fact have 100% of the mothers DNA.

Please don't tell me now that is what you believe? That would make Jesus 100% human. Unless you believe Mary was a GOD.

I believe the SEED, that joined Mary's EGG, was God.
---kathr4453 on 12/29/15


God didn't place Jesus BODY in her womb, because Jesus didn't have a BODY at that time to be placed in her womb.---kathr4453

REALLY?

So how did Jesus' Body get into Mary's womb?

Did it just magically appeared?

You do know that Jesus has 100% DNA from Mary? That's it. No sperm.

At our conception God infuses our souls. We had no existence prior to our conception.

Remember Jesus is God who had Being before being a Human.

So, the 2nd Person was placed into the womb of Mary.

Jesus existed before Mary.

Our bodies starts from one cell and starts to multiply (which most call 'growing') into a recognized fetus/body.

But the one cell has all the body parts contained in itself.
---Nicole_Lacey on 12/28/15


AG, I believe that Jesus is coming in the next fifty years. All Christians who have died will be coming with Him to receive our new bodies at the resurrection. It will be a wonderful moment for all Christians, and a terrible one for those who are lost. Their time will have run out.

Everyone PLEASE remember I said don't use the parable of the lost sheep because Jesus said a man lost a sheep. Not I lost a sheep and went out to look for it.

The picture of a sheep on the shoulders of Jesus isn't in the Scriptures.

Nice try Trav, but Matt 15:24 speaks about a lost sheep of the house of Israel which is more than one.

Also Jesus states he is sent out to get the lost sheep, not I have found it and am taking it home..

This doesn't cut it either:
Isa_40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom.

If based on the above Scripture your famous picture should have the sheep in His arms and next to His chest. Bosom isn't shoulders.

---Jed on 12/3/15

Of course! Allegorically speaking, of course.

No Nicole. The object called the Mercy seat by Scripture is the Mercy seat.

Mark 3:35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.

The Mercy seat is the very throne of God. We come to the Father THROUGH Jesus Christ. Jesus blood on the Mercy seat IN HEAVEN, makes it possible for the FATHER to forgive your sin. This has NOTHING to do with Mary, in that Mary cannot give Mercy or forgive sin. However Mary as a sinner can also find mercy through Jesus Christ.

Jesus took on the seed of ABRAHAM, Hebrews 2. And Jesus is the seed and offspring of David.

That's why in 325 A.D. it was proclaim that Mary is the Mother of God./////

Proclaimed by the RCC, not proclaimed in scripture. Ok, what was going on in 325AD. Ans:
the RCC trying to persuade the Greeks to give up the goddess Diana, had to find another goddess to take her place ...walla, in comes Mary to replace their virgin goddess. And in comes the pagan Madonna and Son IKONS, to satisfy and compromise the Gospel to appeal to all those who refused to give up their gods and goddesses. And they had to replace the other gods and goddesses with SAINTS. Just do a quick study on The Old Roman Empire and the whole structure of the RCC, and you will see the RCC is nothing more than the old Roman Empire Scripture calls the HARLOT.

Jerry and Kathr, you both are jealous of Jesus' Mother.
Jesus only has Mary's DNA. A fact!
It was Mary 'yes' to the Angel to PROVIDE a Body with blood, arms and legs to the 2nd Person of the Trinity.

If Mary decided not to breast feed Jesus, HE would have died.

Did you breast feed God?
Did you rock God to Sleep?
Did you teach God to say His first Word?

Stop being jealous because God picked Mary and not neither of you two.

BTW, if Jesus is Mercy which He is, then Mary's Lap is a seat which Jesus SAT ON.

So using common sense.
You can say Mary is the Seat of Mercy.
Not Mercy but the Seat.

\\ that seems to have escalated 100 fold over the last 15-20 years, where love is waxing cold........all this we were told as a sign of a time before the Lord comes.\\

I heard that back 50 years ago.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

IN defense of A.G., and witnessing the events of the world, very much in line with 2 Timothy 3 that seems to have escalated 100 fold over the last 15-20 years, where love is waxing cold........all this we were told as a sign of a time before the Lord comes. But regardless of whether He comes today or 20 + years from now, as Christians we are to STAND STRONG, in this present evil age, and be a LIGHT to the Lost. Not run and hide under a rock, or build a fortress around your home, as some have. We're here for a purpose.

Jesus will be back. However, he is testing us, who is the true believer, and who is not. Your faith will serve you well. Toward the very end of times, I believe Jesus will return.

MonkBrendan, I think that makes good sense.

John 1944 said, " When were the Last Days mentioned in 2 Peter supposed to be?"

Now! In the NT, when someone says last days, he is speaking of the days after Pentecost, when the Church was born. We have only lived in these last days.

Pray for me,
the unworthy monk Brendan

When were the Last Days mentioned in 2 Peter supposed to be?
---john1944 on 11/13/15


I agree with many of you. The scriptures teach that no man knows when he is coming back.

This has nothing to do with what any of you have said, but I just wanted to give you some scripture to think on:

2Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Peter 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

"'Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.'" (Matthew 24:44)

So, I understand we need to give attention to how Jesus means to be "ready", and perhaps not so much attention to "when".

Some scripture for being ready, I think, includes >

"rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." (1 Peter 3:4)

"Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation" (in Philippians 2:14-16)

Scripture teaches only God the. Father knows the day and hour.

Remember there are people who said Christ world return on September 28, 2015!

Since I'm definitely in MY last days, He's coming for me either at the moment of my death or at the Parousia.

One way or the other, yes.

But if you're trying to set up an apocalyptic eschatological time-table, you're wasting your time.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

We are supposed to believe it for every day, and every hour. We must live in the fear of the Lord at all times.

Prov 1:1 "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction."

Deut 10:12 "And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to observe the Lords commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good?"

Pray for me,

I doubt that he is coming soon.
