Not God's mama: Mary was not the 'Mother of God' - analysis








The Roman Catholic Church teaches that Mary is the "Mother of God," thereby causing some people to be confused and led astray believing she was God's biological mother married to God the Father.


No Protestant or orthodox organization comes close to teaching that God had a mother.


The Christian Commander wants to educate you, so that you do not condemn yourselves to hell by following the cult of Mary in disobeying the First Commandment.


The Holy Bible reads clearly, from Genesis to Revelation, that God Almighty has no relatives. He is the only being that has always existed.


"Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life, but made like unto the Son of God, abideth a priest continually." (Hebrews 7:3)


The above verse alone proves that Mary cannot possibly be the mother of God, who existed before Mary was born.


Without either a revelation from God, from His messengers or from teachers that He sent, the human family might struggle to understand some of the Bible.


Hence, nonbelievers might erroneously say that some of the Bible's verses contradict.


It is our own failure to properly understand and to harmonize the Bible’s verses that causes some humans to think the Scriptures contradict or are confusing.


Proper study, knowledge of the Bible’s clarifying verses and guidance from true teachers can all help to clear our confusion.


Only Satan intentionally deceives and causes chaos. God is not the author of confusion or error.


It is correct to say that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh, but it is not correct to imply that God was born when Mary birthed Jesus.


God never was born. He is a Spirit. (John 4:24-27)


A mother must exist before her baby. If Mary was God's mother, then that makes her an eternal deity with a womb that existed before God.


Mary was sinful like the rest of the human family. She knew that she needed a Savior.


After she was visited by the angel Gabriel, who told her that she was chosen to give birth to Jesus, then Mary praised God.


"And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour," she said. (Luke 1:47)


Mary was declared the Mother of God in 431 AD at the Council of Ephesus that was organized by Roman Emperor Theodosius II.


According to the Eternal World Television Network, a 24-hour Catholic content channel, "Mary is not a goddess to be worshiped but a mother to be loved."


Those words are only lip service to disguise the truth that Mary is absolutely viewed as divine in Roman Catholicism.


The same EWTN website also reads, “Upon the fact of her divine Motherhood depends all her dignities and prerogatives."


Paragraph 509 in the Catechism of the Catholic Church reads that "Mary is truly 'Mother of God' since she is the mother of the eternal Son of God made man, who is God himself."


That is only part of the misinformation and blasphemous teachings about Mary found in the Catholic Catechism. The link in the above sentence provides more.


Please remember that this is Rome that we are talking about. The Roman Empire crucified Jesus at the behest of Jewish leaders.


Roman soldiers gave Him a crown made of thorns, mocked Him, gambled for His garments, scourged and pierced Him: thereby shedding Jesus' blood and water.


Pagan Roman emperors, such as Nero, persecuted the early Christians in a vigorous effort to wipe them off the face of the earth.


In Roman mythology, only goddesses are mothers of gods.


The Roman Catholic story about Mary reads like Greek and Roman fairy tales.


Rea Silvia, also known as Ilia, is the mythical mother of the twins Romulus and Remus, who founded the city of Rome. She was a Vestal Virgin. The pagan god, Mars, impregnated her. He is the twins' father.


In Greek myths, Rhea is a Titan and the mother goddess of the deities from Mount Olympus: Zeus, Poseidon, Hera, Aphrodite, Athena, Artemis, Apollo, Ares, Hermes and Dionysus.


The EWTN site, linked above, reveals that Catholics celebrate the "solemnity of Mary" as the "octave of Christmas by honoring Mary under her greatest title, the Mother of God."


Mary has her own feast day in the Catholic Church, celebrated every year on January 1.


"The solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, is a holy day of obligation,” according to EWTN.



At the Vatican, Mary the "Virgin Mother" is also honored on what is known as Holy Saturday or Our Lady of Holy Saturday.


She is indeed considered worthy of worship, according to Catholicism: evident in actions but denied by deceptive words.


Her idols, images and likenesses made by human hands can often be seen lifted above the crowd and paraded through the streets during Catholic celebrations.


She is also the subject of Catholicism's prayer: "Hail Mary.”


"Hail, Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with thee.

Blessed art thou amongst women

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners,

now and at the hour of our death. Amen."


The Holy Scriptures do not mention Mary praying for us.


Jesus, the High Priest forever, is the only mediator between God and man.


"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." (1 Timothy 2:5)


In the Bible, Mary is the flesh’s earthly parent.


"Now His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover." (Luke 2:41)


Clearly, Joseph is not Jesus' biological dad. The Bible says that he was Jesus' parent.


Mary and her husband lost track of Christ, while traveling from Jerusalem back to Nazareth, after the Passover when He was 12-years-old.


Remember that God has no age. He is the Ancient of Days who was living and uncreated before days ever began. (Genesis 1, Daniel 7:9-14)


Joseph and Mary went back to Jerusalem, looking for Jesus, and found Him after three days. He was sitting and astonishing all that heard him in the Temple.


"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?" (Luke 2:48)


Even His "parents" were shocked and not fully aware of who they were raising. Also notice that Mary referred to Joseph as Jesus' "father."


Jesus taught that we should call no man father upon the earth.


"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." (Matthew 23:9)


Christ told Mary and Joseph that He was doing God’s work.


"And he said unto them, 'How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?'" (Luke 2:43-49)


And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.


Joseph was not a priest or a Levite. He was from the tribe of Judah: King David's tribe.


The Bible reveals that Jesus grew in wisdom and stature. God does not grow in wisdom or stature.


There were two administrations in Mary.


One was God Almighty, the Spirit which had no beginning and always existed. This Spirit dwells in all believers.


The other administration was manifested in flesh and blood: the Son of God formed with a beginning as the Lord's "anointed" or "Christ" named Jesus: the Spirit wrapped by Jesus' skin.


There is only one God, and there are no others with Him. (Deuteronomy 4:35, 6:4, 32:39, 1 Corinthians 8:6)


God was not made. God cannot be made. God cannot die like Jesus' crucified body did. It departed from the Spirit, devoid of water and blood after he was pierced.


The Spirit of God never dies. God never even sleeps. Jesus slept in the flesh. (1 Kings 18:27, Matthew 8:24)


Jesus was predestined, prophesied to come into the world. The prophet Isaiah foretold of Him centuries before Mary.


She is not described as "without mother or father," having no beginning and no ending or existing from everlasting to everlasting.


That description only applies to the one true God. (Psalm 90:2)


Mary is not divine. There is no Scripture commanding us to either worship her or to celebrate a feast day for her.


Feast your eyes on the truth.


On the cross of crucifixion, Jesus said to Mary: "Woman behold your son!"


He said to the disciple who he loved: "Behold your mother!"


And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.


Mary was also the earthly mother of that disciple. He was her son, according to Jesus.


Stop treating Mary like a Greek-Roman deity. Learn to worship the one and only God Almighty before He condemns you to low hell.
