Ann ::This is a resurrected BlogYour reply 18 months later what caused you to reply.Mary was & is full of grace from her conception by God,that means concieved without sin. Thus she is full of grace as acknowledged.Quibbling with words is satans ploy & you are the pawn.
---Emcee on 8/1/07

The Holy Ghost is God's Spirit. This Spirit will dwell within you when you receive the new birth experience of being born again: which is being filled with the Holy Ghost and baptized in Jesus name! It is Jesus dwelling within you. The comforter that Jesus spoke about in the book of Acts. There is not God the mother! There is God the father, Jesus Christ the son, and the Holy Spirit...all dwelling within the body of Jesus Christ! Col. 2:9 says, for in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily!
---Eddie on 8/1/07

Emcee,read your Bible. Gabriel never said "Hail Mary,FULL OF GRACE". Luke 1: 28 "And the angel came in unto her,and said,Hail,thou that art highly favoured,the Lord is with thee:blessed art thou among women." Elizabeth never said "Mary full of grace". Luke 1:42 "And she spake out with a loud voice,and said,Blessed art thou among women,and blessed is the fruit of thy womb." In all the Bible,the only time that phrase is used is John 1:14,referring to Christ Himself.
---Ann5758 on 7/25/07

In Genesis 3:15, God said that there is to be an enmity between the "woman" and the serpent, and this enmity is shared between her seed and its seed. The woman is said to share the same enmity, total opposition with Satan. If Mary, "the woman" had any sin, then she would not be in complete opposition to the devil.Enmity means opposition....Thanks
---ruben on 12/1/05

Emcee, I asked you that because I think you don't show much motherly feeling. I agree w/you about any "assurance" of salvation granted by any denomination. It seems like the spiritual is totally disconected from physical REALITY. I asked myself in all spirituality, what if Mary were my daughter for real? and wow... Who preconditioned little Mary? Gabriel? In one session?
---Nancy on 12/1/05

God, Jesus, & the Holy Spirit are all One. In 1st John5:7 it shows that. Also in Genesis 1:26 God said " let US make man in Our image".

Nancy::Do you have a certificate of authenticity to SHOW you have been saved, most people I know Dont.My being a man does not prove or guarantee your salvation, its the choice you make & follow maybe those duped girls,out of spite did not accept the enevitable& became the offspring of the accursed,that is why there are so many today.Geneses
---Emcee on 11/30/05

Are you a man Emcee? I pray, love the truth and know Im saved. Im a mother. If my young daughter tells me that the angel Gabriel arranged for her to be impregnated by the Holy Ghost without telling Joseph or me Thank God Mary is not my daughter. The Early Church Fathers say that at that time a lot of Jewish girls were eager to birth the Messiah, but only Mary was highly favored. Many girls were duped.
---Nancy on 11/29/05

Nancy::I am surprised That type of Hilarity is not worthy of an answer.Pray dont PLAY
---Emcee on 11/22/05

Consider this, Mary kept the encounter with Gabriel a secret from her husband. Mary was too young for sex, yet. In that culture it was/is normal for a girl to be given in marriage at a very early age. The Holy Ghost got Mary physically pregnant when Joseph was not watching. God doesn't sin so it was not adultery. She didn't tell Joseph until 6 months later. Mary was very cool all along... People are making Mary a divine being of some sort...
---Nancy on 11/21/05

Alan::Yes because the answer lies within that verse:read my answer to Debbie in "Is Jesus from Marys Body"Follow the explaination & keep an open mind with the desire to believe. Then you shall see,my friend Gods own statement which was to come to pass. Answer the question who WAS the WOMAN cited no name at that time?
---Emcee on 11/21/05

Emcee ... you have quoted that verse so often to me, and I still cannot see that it shows mary to be without any sin. And how could she have been, unless she like Jesus was miraclulously conceived? And if she had been would that not have been recorded in the Bible record?
---alan8869_of_UK on 11/20/05

Emcee.I did NOT say Mary was spotless,but virginal/I understood that we are ALL born with sin/that is why we need Jesus/if the HS only resided in us as long as we were sin free,He would be in/out of us all the time..I cannot live a completely sinfree life, try as hard as I may, as I am still in the flesh, HS does not exit as soon as I sin..He helps me overcome them, not abandons me..God placed His Holy Spirit within me ,in my sinful state,He can do as He pleases.He will never leave me or forsake me.
---karin on 11/20/05

Alan;; Read my reply to Debbie. Take Gen3,V15 analyse it & you will see the hand of God & how it works & then your eyes will be opened,its all so simple,it unfolds like a picture just look,reason & keep an open mind& ask for guidance .
---Emcee on 11/20/05

Emcee ... you have already said elsewhere that Mary was the daughter of Anna and ??? That being so, how could she have been sinless? Genesis 3 does not require her to be sinless, and the angels salutation does not say she was sinless ... she was specially chosen, and was, by that, blessed.
---alan8869_of_UK on 11/19/05

Emma:: There are 3 persons in one god; 1god the Father 2God the son 3God the Holy Ghost.THERE IS NO GOD THE MOTHERThe words in Gen2 V23-24 are Adams words describing his new mate EVE.In this incident in Geneses2,V15 God the Father, Rebuked Satan for deceving Eve & said he would set enmity between him & THE WOMAN whose offspring would crush his head.This was foretold by God,his first declaration of Jesus' coming.The HS was the spouse of THAT WOMAN.

Emma, back to your original question. As is quoted in scripture, God "the Father" IS God "the Mother".(Gen.2:24). The Son and Holy Ghost are the working facits of the "Father-spirit". (Eph.3:9),(John1:1&10)(1Cor.2:10)etc. Knowing that Christ is God in the flesh (Col.1:15-18). & H.G.died for us (Acts20:28).
---mike_fl on 11/18/05

Elder::Wrong on 2 counts 1God admonished satan Gen3V15 &In the same breath promised to give the offspring of a woman, the offspring was his son(we know) who defeated the devil:but who was the woman who was to be the mother??His declaration of that woman yet to be born. was of his making & hence was sinless because God is perfection.#2The angel Declared Greetings favoured one the lord is with You.who else in the bible had this heavenly salutation?& if she was with sin would The angel used those words!!!
---Emcee on 11/14/05

Emcee, as A = C, D never could if D is a -.
I agree that God created Adam and Eve. He also created Mary.
God used your A & B to create Adam and Eve but He used plan D to create Mary.
Check the Genealogy of Mary and you will see it goes back and David is in her line thus making Jesus of the Davidic line which causes Mary to be a sinner.
Mary was chosen because of her willingness and obedience to the Lord.
It could have been Jane if Mary refused.
Ugh.... Mary don't walk on no water..
---Elder on 11/14/05

Mary was the mother of Jesus.. while He was in human form. that's different from Mary being the mother of God. God had no mother. He wasn't created, he just always was. When we realize this, then we see how irrelevent it is to worry about whether Mary was sinless!
---taylor on 11/14/05

Emcee, of course God did not create sin, but He created the obey Him or to disobey Him. Man chose to disobey, and because of that, every person from then on had the sin nature from birth...EVERYONE... Mary was not excluded. You have not proved that Gen.1:15 shows she was sinless. I see nothing about that there.
---Ann5758 on 11/14/05

Ann::You insist that Eve was that woman.How do yo come to that conclusion ?Who was Eves Off spring who would Crush Satans head!!!!Did he say Eves off spring in Geneses? & was it Eves off spring that crushed Satans head.All things born of Eve were drowned in the deluge & the world had a fresh start.YET the prophesy was Fulfilled by Marys off spring, the GOD turned Man for our redemption.Who WAS that WOMAN God spoke & declared on that day in Geneses,she had no Name then.but her Gender & origin was declared.
---Emcee on 11/14/05

Alan & Ann::Contd#2If you believe this,then you must also believeGod created sin& this wrong Doctrine equates God with sin.This we all know is an IMPOSSIBILITY.God came into this world as incarnate His arrival & depature was to fulfill a prophesy, which we as christians believe & live by& in so doing we pick up our cross & follow him.In trust love & the values He left us.
---Emcee on 11/14/05

Alan ANN: Mary was Gods Mother she was & she wasnt.Consider God didnt need a mother to present his son who was a God to this world,but chose this means when he declared to satan I will put enmity between you& the woman & between your offspring & HERS, He will strike your head & you will strike his heel' GOD declared a woman was to be involved would God create a woman with sin? when he had just created A& E without sin.TBC

Alan :::SO you look for the name MARY in Geneses 3 V15--but you agree Adam & Eve were created by God & without sin-Who was this woman& the offspring ??That woman who was to be the earthly Mother of his son Jesus could have been Jane suzy Betty OR debbie but NO the mother chosen was Mary who found favour in Gods eyes would he find favour if she was in sin would he send his son to be born from a tarnished vessel.If you belive that the you believe GOD agrees to equate with sin ----NO way Hosae.It is ABC
---Emcee on 11/13/05

Alan::Friend try a little common sense reasoning Or follow the blog Catholics believe Mary sinless.Its like geometry If A=B=C, then A=C: Things equal to the same thing are equal to one another.You may not agree but then again I can see it.
---Emcee on 11/13/05

Ann ... I thought as you do, but since Emcee has stated that Genesis 3 15 referred to mary, I looked up my study Bible (not a RCC one) and found there that this is generally taken to be a prophesy about Mary.
But it does not indicate that she was any more taen the mother of His earthly incarnation, and does not imply she is in any way mother of God (only of His earthly body) or that she was without sin.
---alan8869_of_UK on 11/13/05

Emcee ... I have been following both these blogs, and contributing.
Mary was blessed BY being chosen by God to be the mother of Jesus when He came to earth as a man.
Yes she was a virgin and probably she was a gentle mother, but that does not make her spotless, and neither Genesis 3 15 nor the angel's salutation contain anything to suggest that she was sinless
I will not join in the diatribe which says the RCC is not Christian, but I do think they have grave doctrinal and practice errors.

No, Emcee ... I see nothing there to say that Mary was without sin. I am sorry.

Alan of Uk::If you so desire to catch up on the diatribe on a gentle & spotless virgin go to " Catholics believe Mary was sinless".
---Emcee on 11/13/05

Emcee, in all your arguments, you use Gen 3:15 as scriptural proof that Mary was sinless. I don't see Mary's name written anywhere there. When God speaks of the seed of the woman, He is speaking of Eve, the mother of everything living. Through her, even Mary was born, & through Mary, Jesus. There is nothing there to reference Mary at all. It's all through Eve that He is talking about.
---Ann5758 on 11/13/05

M.P.:The reference is as you say but who are those living whom you know to be as declared saints.??The Apostles Creed defines those who are FAITHFUL as the communion of saints.Its a declaration of faith & is even mentioned in the bible with God& the saints in Heaven These are declared not anticipated.Only God knows who will become his saints, among the living not even those who profess to be saints. Saints do not profess they do & they hope & follow Faithfully.Eph2:V19it explains what we are.

Alan::I hear you I took virginal to be spottless however if you had been following the previous blogs on this subject you will have seen the answers. I proffered Gen.3.V15 in support of my statement.Gods answer is there for those who wish to see.
---Emcee on 11/13/05

Emcee ... karin did not say "pure and spotless" she said "pure and virginal" by which I expect most people understood as did I that she meant sexually pure.
That does not make Mary sinless.
---alan8869_of_UK on 11/13/05

Emcee, try Ephesians 1:1. The word 'saints' and the word 'faithful' which are referring to living people, are both from the same word 'hagios' which can mean consecrated, sacred, holy, morally blameless. They do not refer to dead people who (in the eyes of one human being) had performed miracles whilst alive etc. The word saint simply means someone who truly believes in Jesus as being who He said He was and lives his/her life as a follower of Him.
---M.P. on 11/13/05

Karin:I agree with you on all but one,you are contradictory, you say Mary was pure & spotless yet she was a sinner you cant be both either contention of Gods declaration in Gen3;V15 still stands.GOD would have nothing to do with sin & by the way the HS only resides in us as long as we are sin free he may return on your perfect contrition But that alone is known to god who dispenses Graces.

The Holy Ghost is of the triune Godhead, which we can not fully fathom, that God is all three.(I just believe)..Mary is NOT God the Mother, she was merely God"s vessell for Jesus..although she was pure and virginal, she was with sin as all of us.. we also are with sin, yet God has given His spirit to dwell within us.. Mary is waiting for the resurrection as are those before us,and as we will be , if we die before Jesus returns.

Emcee, do you read the bible at all? The bible describes those who accept Christ as their saviour as saints My definition of the word saint is the same as that in the bible. What other definition can there be that is worth discussing or thinking about? Sadly, the R.C. definition of the word is totally different and unscriptural, which you would know if you read the bible. Perhaps you could point out where I would find your definition
---M.P. on 11/8/05

M.P.::I thank you again.Your beliefs are your own,& may or not necessairly be correct.But what is your definition of a Saint?,& if you were why would it be necessary to be born again?& saved!!! I thought that we were all sinners & that is why Jesus came to show us the way-Remember he said FOLLOW ME-so do saints need saving?SAINTS are people who have passed on & fulfilled the requirement of sainthood.The ones alive are called "living saints" & I have yet to meet one with such accomplishments.
---Emcee on 11/7/05

Emcee, wherever the bible uses the word 'saint' it is referring to true believers. It is not referring to dead people who might or might not have been considered 'special' in the eyes of one particular church and/or its leader. You would be better informed by reading the bible than reading Roman Catholic doctrine.

#2Bruce::Again you misrepresent"Jesus was & is sinless"his advent into this world for his purpose, which was to redeem the world from sin.Remember Marys spouse is the Holy Ghost if so, she also was sinless as declared in geneses.The act of her Immaculate conception had to be true to conceive God's son who was God himself by virtue of the blessed trinity.The enmity is here today 2 factions those on her side & those opposed--Get on side admit .

---Emce on 11/5/05

If I understand you correctly you are saying that if Mary was born with a sin nature then Jesus would be too.

The sin nature is passed on to each succeding generation by the normal man/woman procreation. A point that is not in contention according to the Catholic Encylopedia article "Oringinal Sin". Mary concieved by a miracle of God. There was no earthly father - no natural procreation - hence Jesus was born sinless, NOT because Mary had no sin.

Oh, come on ,'re smarter than that- twisting scripture around to make it say something totally wrong. Of course it doesn't mean Christ, & you know that.

You say that in this case we are "dealing with God himself".

You are then drawing a distinction between God the Son and God the Holy Spirit???

Does Catholic theology not teach that the Holy Spirit IS God Himself? Is God the Father or God the Son any more holy than God the Holy Spirit?
---Bruce5656 on 11/4/05

Bruce::I agree with your reasoning but in this case we are dealing with God himself who Detested sin,was pure himself; so he could not & would not use a defiled vessel Hence Mary had to be pure & immaculate,which she was.The theology behind this principal is true, Otherwise it would have not been documented in the Catholic Encyclopedia.

Moderator - It doesn't make any difference what any Encyclopedia states. If the statements don't agree with the Bible, the statements are false doctrine. That goes for all statements regardless of the denomination.
---Emcee on 11/3/05

God the Father is not human. He does not need to have a mother for his only begotten Son. Hebrews 1:5
No where in scripture does it say the Holy Ghost is God the Mother.
No where does scripture say Jesus Christ had a heavenly mother. He only talked about his heavenly Father.
---Ulrika on 11/1/05

Through out the millenia before Christ, God did at various times come "upon" and "fill" different individuals. All of them had a sin nature but God had a specific mission for them (Sampson Judges 14:19) (Beazleel Ex. 31:3) etc. Even someone like Balaam! Num 24:2

God has always been able to use imperfect vessels to achieve His objectives. Mary was no different. There was no need for her to be sinless - only faithful and, as with Abraham, to believe. Rom 4:3

WE are all sinners Yes I have sinned in my life time & do not carry a perpetual halo but I do live up to his commandments like any other good catholic & christian. Surely you don't need a scripture to prove the authenticity of that statement.
