The church teaches also, that Маry is the eternal virgin. The Bible says, that Маry remained the virgin till the childbirth (Luk.:26-38), but, according to common sense, a woman who just gave birth to a child can not be considered as a virgin any more. The church gives the deprived of any logic answer: “In fact, Christ's birth did not diminish his mother's virginal integrity but sanctified it. And so the liturgy of the Church celebrates Mary as Aeiparthenos, the 'Ever-virgin.'" CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH § 499 (1994).
is Mary's only son". CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH §
501 (1994). Is it really so? Judge yourself: “Is not this the carpenter, the
son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are
not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.» (Mark 6:3); «But
other of the apostles saw I none, except James the Lord's brother.»
(Gal. 1:19). The church, knowing, that this doctrine is not maintained by
Holy Scriptures, tries to explain the disagreeing with the Bible, teaching, that
the brothers and sisters mentioned in the Bible are the brothers and the sister
of the other Mary, sister of the mother of Jesus. Whence such reliance without
the proofs?...The Bible teaches «not
to think of men above that which is written»
never called Маry
his mother, He called her "woman" (John.2:4, 19:26). This
doesn’t mean that He did not love her, but He did not want her to be
recognized as the mother of God. God can not be born by a human. Jesus was God
from the beginning of the world. It was necessary for Him to be born anew by the
woman in flesh in order to live the life of a man, to die for the people, and
then again to return to the heaven. Mary was only a channel through which God
entranced into a human world. Маry
was a nice woman, but nevertheless any pious and pure girl from a respectable
Israeli family could have been in her place. When Jesus began to preach, Маry
could not believe in His divinity and tried to stop Him (Mark 3:21,31).
Therefore, when He was told: “Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand
without, desiring to speak with thee. But he answered and said unto him that
told him: who is my mother? and who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his
hand toward his disciples, and said: behold my mother and my brethren! For
whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my
brother, and sister, and mother» (Mat.12:46-50; Luke 8:20-2; Mark 3:31-35).
When a woman praised Mary loudly, Jesus corrected her, making it clear that the woman who had given birth to Him was not blessed above those who were saved by the grace of God.: “...a certain woman raised her voice from the crowd, and said unto him: blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the breasts which thou hast sucked. But he said: Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.» (Luke.11:27-28).
The Catholic church teaches, that Mary was born and lived without a sin. If Mary was immaculately conceived and was free of sin, why it was necessary for her to bring a sacrifice to the temple, as every Jewess did for cleansing after the childbirth? She did so because she was a sinner who was bringing an offering for her sin. Mary herself knew she was a sinner in need of a Savior: “My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior” (Luke 1:46-47). The Bible gives a completely clear answer: “there is no one who does not sin”(1Kig.8:46). “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Rom.3:23). There was only one man without a sin – Jesus Christ.(2Cor.5:21).
In Robert Fox book “The Catholic Faith”, 1983 (p.126) is written, that the message of lady Fatima (Маry, seen by the children in 1917 in Fatima) was the following: “Mary reaffirms major doctrines of Catholicism and calls mankind back to her Son in the Holy Eucharist and to loyalty to the magisterial teachings of the Church ».
These words are not of a biblical Маry, and Jesus isn’t biblical here. Even the doctrines of church are named true. If many of the previous phenomena of Mary were an obvious fiction, in case of the phenomenon having seen by children in Fatima are true devil’s deeds. The Satan in Mary’s image spoke with children. Therefore Paul warned: “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed”. (Gal.1:8). As “Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light” (2Cor.11:14).
