How about "Mother of the Lord"?

Why must there always be some sort of Addendum to the things found within the pages of Scripture (Bible)
Because the Book of Acts has an ellipsis, and because Scripture itself says to keep the tradition whether by word or by scripture.

Quote:
There have been a number of times, where verses have been put Forward, stating the Bible (Should not be added to, or subtracted from) isn't this the case which is in question at this Moment?

There are enough things which do reside within the pages of the Bible which both Protestant and Catholic can agree, why is it needful to constantly advance questions which gender strife bringing into question those things which cause division.
I don't think it is causing division at all. Ped and I understand each other much better from this discussion.

I see a lot of times, when things like Bill down the road, or President Obama are brought into the mix.
We are not to compare Spiritual things with Earthly things,
Right, whether we use a capital in English is an earthly thing, and so I was comparing earthly things with earthly things.

Quote:
Sticking with what Scripture says and not some ones interpretation of what it says, is the safest way to go, that is where the Holy Spirit can then lead
So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?” And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” (Acts 8.30-31)

ped
That term is actually a translation of "Theotokos" which actually means "God-bearer".

Traditionally, to "father" is to "originate", and to "mother" is to "bear", Hence we say things like "She bore a child."

So in calling Mary "Theotokos" we are saying that Mary bore God in her womb, because Jesus is God.

This term has more to do with the divinity of Christ than it has to do with Mary.

I believe I have just asnwered that. The Bible teaches that Jesus is God and that Mary bore him in her womb. Case closed.

No, because she bore the "Son", the second person of the Trinity, but it was the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, who had originally overshadowed her. I am sure that Father Linsinbigler can probably give a better answer though.

Ah yes, Ye Old straw man. Nobody is lifting Mary to an equal status as Jesus. Stick with the facts please.

That is a blasphemous question.

Nobody is trying to lift Mary to be equal to God. That is your strawman which makes it easier to attack than dealing with the Truth about Mary and her REAL DIGNITY as Mother of the Second Person of the Holy Trinity.

Sorry to say but in all the years I have come to this site, this would have to be the worst responding post (seemingly cleverly constructed) I have seen for presenting a perspective. And to one of, if not the most knowledgeable and esteemed persons, Reverend Linsinbigler.
He may know otherwise.

What has become of you Jim?
Be Blessed!

I don't know if its the "worst", but it sure ranks pretty low.

Sure there are the whackos but I have never considered Jim to be a whacko.
I still would never but has he had a moment or something?
Does he really see the Trinity concept from that perspective?

Why present it like that to Reverend Linsinbigler?

Well, I think I had better reserve my opinion due to my recent behavior with other members.
