Christmas, Nativity, CHRIST's birth in Bethlehem

What Is Truth? - What Hath The LORD Answered Thee, What Hath The LORD Spoken Unto Thee?

"Pilate therefore said unto Him, Art thou a king then?  JESUS answered, Thou sayest that I am a king, To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth.  Every one that is of the truth heareth My Voice. [!]  Pilate saith unto Him, What is truth?" John 18:37,38  

[What Is Truth? Treatise hyperlink list.]


(First, and perhaps the worst of the wrongs wrought by Roman Catholicism)

Marianism: Are you a Christian or a Marian; can you truly be both, or are they mutually exclusive?

What is a Christian? "a little Christ", a follower of Christ, a disciple of Christ Jesus, one who has been bought and saved by The LORD and GOD who first created that one.  

What is a Marian, or Marianist? (or the larger question, What is a Roman Catholic?)  How did the two, Christianity and Marianism, ever get entangled, and allegedly become inseparably linked?  

What does the Bible say in support of Marianism?  Nothing. 

What does the Bible say against all inventions of man, like Marianism?  Plenty, none of which is good.  

Aside from the unscripturalness of Marianism, and the Biblical prohibitions of such man-made/woman-made vain philosophies as Marianism, and the evidence of GOD's extreme displeasure with such things, aside from all of this, what is so wrong about it really, after all it is religious, isn't it, and therefore it must be good, true?!


.  Before proceeding with these specific questions, allow me to suggest you consider doing the following at some time in the near future, to see if what I am about to share with you is true, or whether it is false (remembering that if it agrees with the letter and the spirit of the Scriptures it is true, and if it disagrees with the letter and the spirit of the Scriptures it is false, in all cases, period):

The next time you read the entire New Testament through (without coaching or any human interference whatever):

  1. Notice how many times the simple, Hebrew, woman Mary, who bore JESUS, is mentioned (and see how many times Joseph, Mary's husband, is mentioned).

  2. Notice how Mary is mentioned, how she is referred to, by all: by Angels, by GOD, by Joseph, by Mary's elderly cousin Elisabeth (who miraculously conceived John the Baptist by her husband Zacharias in her old age), by Simeon, by JESUS, by His disciples, by His apostles (the 'Church Fathers'), by non-believing neighbors, but especially by GOD the Father, and by JESUS CHRIST Himself.

  3. Notice how JESUS CHRIST speaks of Mary, the wife of Joseph (the woman, who while she was a virgin and a very young woman, conceived, and bore JESUS), note how HE treats her...and note how HE does not speak of her, nor treat her, that is (i.e.) how HE refrains from speaking of her, and refrains from treating her.

  4. Notice what instructions are given to the Church concerning Mary; see what instructions to the Church you can find in the Scriptures of the New Testament, from JESUS CHRIST, from GOD the Father (via Angels), and from the 'Church Fathers.'

  5. Pray about this, pray directly to GOD the Father in the name of JESUS CHRIST, as HE instructed the apostles to do; ask GOD to reveal the truth to you concerning this matter and concerning all matters, but especially those of great importance.


*At the core, the great wrongs done by Marianism, are the exact opposites of what are supposedly accomplished by it, i.e.:


* These are to name but a few of the great, eternally punishing evils, wrought by the satanic heresy of Marianism.



Now for the Scriptural examination of a basis for Marianism. Portrayal of Mary, Jesus, and Cherubs

The Scripture texts referenced will be principally from the Gospels, i.e. from Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.


Psalm 69:8

"I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children."  

My mother's children?!  Whatever could Jesus have been referring to, by the Holy Spirit?  I thought Mary was supposed to be an eternal virgin, and was only to have borne one child, Jesus?  So how can the Holy Bible refer to her children?! and with such a reference too, i.e. "I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children."  Dear ones, this is not saying that Jesus has become a stranger and alien to his disciples!!!!  Think people, in God's name, THINK, instead of blindly, ignorantly, sheepishly, foolishly, carelessly, irresponsibly accepting the Roman Catholic hierarchies' satanic propaganda, try believing God's blood-bought Holy Word!

[Psalm 69 is explicitly recognized by the apostles of the Lord as referring to the LORD Jesus the Christ.]


Matthew 1:1,16-17

The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

Matthew 1:18-20

Now the birth of JESUS CHRIST was on this wise: When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the HOLY GHOST.  Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.  But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the HOLY GHOST.

[The angel of the LORD appears unto Joseph and tells him not to fear to Take unto him Mary his wife.]

But the Popes would have you believe that Joseph purportedly chose not to ever take his wife!

Interesting don't you think: Joseph espouses Mary to himself to be his lawfully wedded wife, because he wants her to become his wedded wife, his lover, his spouse his helpmeet, and to bear his children; then when he discovers his desired betrothed bride to be is pregnant/with child he considers putting her away by divorcement; then the angel of the LORD instructs him not to fear to take Mary to himself to be his wedded wife, for the child is conceived of the Holy Ghost; then Joseph takes her to himself while abstaining from knowing her sexually, until after the child is born.

But if we are to believe Popery, after the child JESUS is born, Joseph loses all desire to cleave unto Mary as his wedded wife, and chooses to live a profane lie of a life with Mary, and they continue to live the same lie for the remainder of their 'married' lives.  If Joseph was not going to take Mary to himself sexually, why would he have been moved to put her away by divorcement because she was with child.  People, only the 'Popes' and Cardinals, Arch-Bishops, Bishops, Monks, and Priests...could concoct a story this ludicrous; what is your excuse for believing such an outrageous lie, and all of the accompanying lies crafted by the Romanists?!  According to God's Holy Word, we are to worship God with all our hearts, and minds, and bodies, and souls.  According to God's Holy Word, we are to obey God, not man!

Matthew 1:21-23

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.  Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the LORD by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, GOD with us.

Matthew 1:24-25

Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the LORD had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not TILL she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called His name JESUS.

[Joseph did as the angel of the LORD had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And Knew her not TILL, that is until, she had brought forth her firstborn son!!!

Dear ones, the choice you have is very simple, you can believe GOD and His Holy Word, or you can believe the preposterous, vain, anti-scriptural teaching of sinful man.]

Matthew 2:1-2

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Matthew 3:16-17

And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.

Matthew 4:1-11

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.  

[Note: Jesus does not say that man shall live by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of man, pope, or council, or out of a church document, or out of a statement of theology, but, rather "out of the mouth of God!"]

Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee; and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them: And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

Matthew 12:46-50

While He yet talked to the people, behold, His mother and His brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.  Then one said unto him, 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.

[While Jesus teaches the people, Jesus' mother and brothers come to Him, and attempt to interrupt Jesus' teaching to the multitude and to speak with Him privately; but Jesus rather than being distracted from teaching the multitude of people, uses this attempted interruption by his mother and brothers,* to teach the multitude.  And what does the Lord teach? that honor, intimacy, communion, and eternal loving relationship with the Lord Jesus belong to those who will obey GOD, and do the will of GOD, rather than to his biological flesh and blood.

Clearly, Jesus' response and teaching here make no sense whatever if "his brethren" accompanying "his mother" herein are his disciples and not his actual brothers, for then He would be saying in response to these alleged 'disciples' desiring to speak with Him, "and who are My brethren?" followed by stretching forth His hand toward his disciples among the multitude of people, and proclaiming, " Behold...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."]

* Jesus' biological brothers are in fact half-brothers, having been borne of the same mother as Jesus was (Mary), but begotten by Joseph the husband of Mary, rather than by the Holy Ghost who begot Jesus of Mary (while she was the virgin espoused wife of Joseph).

Matthew 13:53-58

And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.  And when He was come into His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?  Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and JudasAnd his sisters, are they not all with us?  Whence then hath this man all these things?  And they were offended in him.

But JESUS said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.  And HE did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

[Jesus' countrymen upbraid him as being unqualified to teach in the synagogue and to show forth wisdom and mighty works from GOD, on the grounds that his earthly family: i.e., Joseph, Joseph's wife Mary, and Joseph's and Mary's children ( sons, James, Joses, Simon, Judas, and all of their daughters) were unlearned, 'common' people; therefore, Jesus had no right nor place to take it upon himself to teach as a Rabbi (and such a Rabbi, at that).

The Jews are accusing Jesus on the grounds that his biological family is lowly, unlearned, unworthy....  The Jews are not referring to his followers!  Do you also notice that all of his four brothers are enumerated, while his sisters are not mentioned by name (as women were not valued by the Jews the same as men were).

For those who are inclined to blindly accept the tortuously contrived Catholic 'reasoning' which desperately attempts to explain away such plainly revealing scriptures as this, please consider: Jesus is come back into His own country, Nazareth.  He begins to teach the truth of God in the Synagogue and to evidence His authority over the things of this world, including over the religious experts of that day, the Jewish Hierarchy, the Priests, Bishops, Archbishops, Cardinals, and Popes of that day.  His countrymen take him to task, they upbraid him, they accuse and condemn him as being unqualified and unfit to teach and preach on the grounds that he is a commoner, that he is not recognized as a Levite, and thus he is not a levitical priest (though his mother is descended from the Levites), he is not trained as a rabbi, he is not a Pharisee, nor a Sadducee, nor a doctor of the law, nor even a scribe; but that he is only the poor son of a poor carpenter, all the members of whose family are poor common people, namely his mother Mary, his half-brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas, and all of his half-sisters!  Jesus is accused here solely, exclusively, explicitly on the basis of the societal status or standing of his immediate family, not on the basis of friends or followers, can't you see that?

Plainly, unmistakably, Jesus is accused of being as common, ordinary, and lowly as his family (his disciples are not even mentioned, much less considered, here).

The Lord Jesus' extended genealogy, his pedigree, his family tree, his bloodline, is not considered by his accusers.  Jesus was directly descended from the Kings of Judah, and descended from the Levitical Priests, and was born in Bethlehem and proclaimed to be the King of the Jews.  But no matter, the popery of his day knew better, and the popery of our day are still propagating profane lies.]

Matthew 17:1-8

And after six days JESUS taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light.  And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with Him.  Then answered Peter, and said unto JESUS, LORD, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for Thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is My beloved Son, in whom I AM well pleased; HEAR ye HIM. (!)

And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.  And JESUS came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.  And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save JESUS only.

[Who does GOD Almighty say Jesus is the Son of?  God Himself, or Mary?

Who does GOD Almighty command the highest apostles (including Peter, aka 'the first Pope') to Hear?  JESUS, or Mary? - or - Jesus and Mary?

If GOD Almighty personally rebuked the chiefest apostles so soundly for thinking to honor Moses and Elijah in the same way as they honored Jesus, do you imagine that GOD looks with favor on our paying such honor and tribute to Mary?!  Do you really?!!!

Look again at the passage of scripture, Matthew 17:1-8; what transpires, what does GOD say in response to Peter's request of Jesus to be permitted with James and John to build three tabernacles for Jesus, Moses, and Elias?  GOD says, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I AM well pleased; Hear ye HIM."

If GOD Almighty who had sent Moses and Elijah to Jesus to speak with Him concerning His decease, forbid the chiefest apostles to pay obeisance to Moses and Elijah, and sharply commanded them to Hear Jesus, do you imagine that GOD would now send Mary not to Jesus, but to we poor, blind, ignorant people to speak to us, instead of sending Jesus, who HE commanded blind, ignorant, Peter, James, and John to Hear?

Would GOD give diametrically opposite commandments to us, and/or to the pope to pass on to us, to pay special honors to Mary (or Peter, or Paul, or St. so & so); would God issue commandments to pay special honors to Mary on an hourly, or daily basis?

Would God Almighty command us to Hear Mary, instead of JESUS?  Would God Almighty command us to pray to Mary, instead of praying to JESUS.  NO!  A thousand, thousand, thousand times NO!

"This is My beloved Son...; Hear ye HIM!"

JESUS! {Solo Christo - CHRIST Alone !}]

Matthew 19:3-12

The Pharisees also came unto Him, tempting Him, and saying unto Him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

And He answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?  Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.  What therefore GOD hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

They say unto Him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?

He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.  And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

His disciples say unto Him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.

But He said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.  For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake.  He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

According to JESUS, What men are not able to marry (receive marriage [the uniting of one man and one woman into one flesh]), those who cannot and thus will not become one flesh sexually with a woman via sexual intercourse/coitus/copulation.

According to JESUS, What happens when a man marries a woman, he takes her (sexually), cleaves unto her (sexually), and they two become one flesh, as GOD joins them together in one flesh!

If there is no cleaving together sexually, they remain twain/two/separate, they do not become one flesh, and no marriage takes place.

If Joseph did not take Mary sexually as his wife, they never became one flesh, and thus were never recognized by GOD as being married; then their so-called marriage was an unconsummated farce, a fraud, and null and void, illegal, a LIE; and that diametrically and flagrantly contradicts GOD's testimony of Joseph's and Mary's marriage in His Holy Word, the Holy Bible.  But God cannot Lie, and His Holy Word is true, so who do you choose to believe - God, or the 'holy' Roman Catholic See?!

[To reiterate God's testimony as to whether Joseph and Mary were truly married.

Matthew 1:1,16-17

The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.]

So, you can either believe GOD and His Word - or - believe sinful man (Popes...).  But if you choose to believe sinful man rather than Holy GOD, you will suffer the consequences of such rebellion against GOD.

Matthew 19:17-19

And He said unto him, Why callest thou Me good? there is none good but one, that is, GOD: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

He saith unto Him, Which?

JESUS said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Matthew 22:41-45

While the Pharisees were gathered together, JESUS asked them, Saying, What think ye of CHRIST? whose son is He?

They say unto Him, The Son of David.

He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call Him LORD, saying, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit Thou on My right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?  If David then call Him LORD, how is He his son?

Matthew 27:55-56

And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed JESUS from Galilee, ministering unto Him: Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children.

Matthew 27:61

And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.

Matthew 28:1

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

[Mary the mother of James and Joses is Mary the wife of Joseph, who first bore Jesus the Christ!  Some Virgin!  A Virgin with a very full sex life, as God intended husbands and wives to have with each other, and with a "quiver" full of children, sons and daughters.]


Mark1:11

And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art My beloved Son, in whom I AM well pleased.

Mark 1:22-24

And they were astonished at His doctrine: for He taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.

And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art Thou come to destroy us?  I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.

Mark 3:31-35

There came then His brethren and His mother, and, standing without, sent unto Him, calling Him.  And the multitude sat about Him, and they said unto Him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for Thee.

And He answered them, saying, Who is My mother, or My brethren?  And He looked round about on them which sat about Him, and said, Behold My mother and My brethren!  For whosoever shall do the will of GOD, the same is My brother, and My sister, and mother.

[Here the multitude of people gathered and listening to Jesus say unto Jesus that his mother and brethren are standing without and seeking him.  Jesus responds directly to the multitude whom he is teaching, and indirectly to his mother brethren, and all who will hear and read of this in time to come.  Jesus looks upon the multitude of people gathered to hear him teach, and says to them, " Who is My mother, or My brethren?  Behold My mother and My brethren!  For whosoever shall do the will of GOD, the same is My brother, and My sister, and mother."  Jesus states emphatically that his family are those who will do the will of God; as in every other instance that is recorded in the Bible where Jesus is afforded the opportunity to give special honour to his mother Mary, he refuses to do so, even humbling her in so doing.  As for the seeming exception at his death on the cross, when he entrusts the now widowed Mary to the care of his beloved apostle John, this is simply and unmistakably a case of Jesus looking after the welfare of his mother after his death, not of paying some special honour or tribute to her, nor remotely suggesting that any special honour should be paid to her.]

Mark 6:1-6

And He went out from thence, and came into His own country; and His disciples follow Him.  And when the sabbath day was come, He began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing Him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?  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.

But JESUS said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. And He could there do no mighty work, save that He laid His hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.  And He marvelled because of their unbelief.  And He went round about the villages, teaching.

[Jesus' countrymen upbraid him as being unqualified to teach in the synagogue and to show forth wisdom and mighty works from GOD, on the grounds that his earthly family: i.e., Joseph, Joseph's wife Mary, and Joseph's and Mary's children ( sons, James, Joses, Simon, Judas, and all of their daughters) were unlearned, 'common' people; therefore, Jesus had no right nor place to take it upon himself to teach as a Rabbi (and such a Rabbi, at that).

The Jews are accusing Jesus on the grounds that his biological family is lowly, unlearned, unworthy....  The Jews are not referring to his followers!  Do you also notice that all of his four brothers are enumerated, while his sisters are not mentioned by name (as women were not valued by the Jews the same as men were).

Plainly, unmistakably, Jesus is accused of being as common, ordinary, and lowly as his family (his disciples are not even mentioned, much less considered, here).

Mark 10:2-12

And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him.

And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?

And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.

And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.  But from the beginning of the creation GOD made them male and female.  For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife: And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.  What therefore GOD hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.

And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.  And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

Mark 10:19

Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not murder, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

Mark15:40

There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;

Mark 15:47-16:1

And Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of Joses, beheld where He was laid.

And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint Him.

[Mary the mother of James the less and Joses is Mary the wife of Joseph, her firstborn child was Jesus the Christ!  Some perpetual Virgin!  A Virgin with a full sex life, as God intended husbands and wives to have in the marriage bed.]


Luke 2:41-52

Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.  And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.  And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.  But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.  And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.

And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.  And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.

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.

And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?

And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.  And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with GOD and man.

[Jesus was sinless, true, but note how he glorifies GOD rather than Joseph, and note how Jesus not only fails to pay special tribute to Mary, but in essence rebukes her.  This is the only way that Jesus addresses his mother Mary, he does so each and every time that he makes mention of her, up until he tells John to take care of her (John 19:27).  The truth is, Jesus knew what sinful man would do, e.g., causing people to worship Mary, so he made a special effort to make it unmistakably, emphatically clear that Mary was a disciple only, and was not to be given special honor above the other disciples.  In truth Jesus paid more special honor to two women disciples of his, Mary the sister of Lazarus and Mary Magdalene (out of whom he had cast seven devils), than he did to his mother Mary, who was also a disciple of his (a disciple of her Lord and Saviour!).]

Luke 8:19-21

Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press.  And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee.

And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

[Again, Jesus is teaching a multitude of people, when his mother Mary and her sons (Jesus' half-brethren, begotten by Joseph of Mary) arrive and seek to gain an audience with Jesus, at the expense of the multitude.  Jesus is doing his heavenly Father's business of teaching the multitude concerning the kingdom of God, and Jesus' sainted mother Mary and her sons attempt to interrupt him, for more important business than God's business.  What is Jesus' response: he teaches the multitude and his mother and her sons with a response that praises those who will do the will of God, and rebukes his sainted mother and her sons: amazing but true, and totally in keeping with Jesus' responses every single time that his sainted mother Mary is the subject or is involved!  Jesus explicitly not only refuses to pay any special honour to his mother, but usually embarrasses/humbles her with his responses as her Lord and King and not her son!  As for the seeming exception at his death on the cross, when he entrusts the now widowed Mary to the care of his beloved apostle John, this is simply and unmistakably a case of Jesus looking after the welfare of his mother after his death, not of paying some special honour or tribute to her, nor remotely suggesting that any special honour should be paid to her.  But if you don't get it, you don't get it, and that's too bad.]

Luke 11:27-28

And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.

But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

[What a humble little gem this is; incredible, really!  A God-fearing woman cries out above the throng and proclaims, "Blessed is the womb (Mary's) that bare thee (JESUS), and the paps (Mary's) which thou (JESUS) hast sucked."

{ala - Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee...blessed art thou among women.}

But what does Jesus reply?  "Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it."

Why such a response from Jesus (it's almost a rebuke of his mother Mary!)?  Can you imagine your Priest, Bishop, Cardinal, or Pope responding this way to such a devout, heartfelt, pious expression of adulation and honor for Mary and Jesus?  Not a chance!!!!

But look again at what Jesus' response to this 'holy' proclamation is.

Rather = instead of; instead of Mary whose womb bore me, instead of Mary whose paps I sucked, instead of Mary full of grace, instead of Mary blessed art thou among women, instead of Mary, instead blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it!!

The word of God mind you.  Blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it!

Dear ones, you can either adhere to the 'holy' Roman dogma, or to the Word of God, and they are absolutely mutually exclusive on so very many fundamentals of faith and practice, such as the matter of Mary; the choice is yours to make, I pray you will choose wisely and well.]

Luke 24:10

It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.

[Mary the mother of James is Mary the wife of Joseph, her firstborn was Jesus the Christ!  Some Virgin!  A Virgin with a very full sex life, as God intended husbands and wives to have with each other.]


John 2:12

After this He went down to Capernaum, He, and His mother, and His brethren, and His disciples: and they continued there not many days.

[What do you think this scripture says?  HE, and His mother, and His brethren, and His disciples!  How plain does GOD have to make it for we poor, blind, ignorant, sinful people to understand?  Jesus' brethren were the sons Joseph begot and Mary conceived and bore to her husband Joseph after Joseph belatedly consummated his marriage with his wife Mary, after Jesus was born.  God intended and explicitly required Joseph to consummate his marriage to Mary for their marriage to be scripturally legitimate and not an illegal, anti-scriptural, abominable sham.]

John 6:41,42

The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.  And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

John 7:1-10

After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.  Now the Jews feast of tabernacles was at hand.

His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.  For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly.  If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.  For neither did his brethren believe in him.

Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.  The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.  Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.

When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.  But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

.  Do you see this?  Jesus' brothers provoke him to risk his life to go into Jewry, to attend a feast, though they know his life is being sought, do you really think this is his disciples, his apostles as a group, to a man? do you really?  Don't you see the way that the brothers differentiate themselves from his disciples, drawing an unmistakable distinction or delineation between themselves and his followers.  Don't you see this, can't you see this, if not, why not?  Has Romanism so brainwashed you, so bewitched you, that you can not recognize the truth, no matter how plain it is?

John 16:23-24

And in that day ye shall ask me nothing.  Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.  Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

John 16:26-27

At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

.  Jesus instructs his apostles to pray to God the Father in His name for whatsoever they have need of...and that the Father will give it.  Jesus states that He need not pray the Father on their behalf, because the Father loves them because they have loved Jesus and believed that He came from God.  Yet, the Roman Catholic church hierarchy instructs its members to pray to Mary, and "Saints" to petition God the Father and God the Son, diametrically and damnably contrary to the commandments of Jesus the Son of God!  You can either obey God or obey the Roman Catholic hierarchy, but you cannot obey both!


Acts 1:12-14

"Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.  And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of JamesThese all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren."

Unmistakably, "his brethren" refers to Mary's sons begotten by her husband Joseph, born after she gave birth to her firstborn Jesus Christ who was begotten by the Holy Ghost.

.  May the Spirit of Truth open your eyes that you may see, open your ears that you may hear, open your minds that you may understand, and open your hearts/spirits that you may believe the truth, and be set free to worship, obey, and serve GOD the Father, GOD the Son, and GOD the Holy Ghost, not perverse men, not idols, and not demons masquerading as dear departed saints, including masquerading as the humble, simple, GOD-fearing woman who bore Jesus (conceived by the Holy Ghost, while she was yet a young, tender virgin), and who became one flesh with Joseph her betrothed husband after Jesus was born, and who bore her husband Joseph four sons, and many daughters, and who became one of the many disciples of Jesus, enjoying no greater honor, nor esteem, than any of his other disciples [all disciples of Jesus Christ are saints, vs. a mere handful of people that are bestowed some special distinction by a perverted institution].

Do you notice that Mary Magdalene (out of whom Jesus cast seven demons; and the same Mary Magdalene who is reputed to have been a harlot or prostitute before being saved by Jesus) figures more prominently than Mary the mother of Jesus (and mother of James, and Joses, and Simon, and Juda, and all of their sisters)?  Do you notice that Martha and Mary the sisters of Lazarus figure more prominently than Mary the mother of Jesus (and mother of James, and Joses, and Simon and Juda, and all of their sisters!!!)?

Do you notice that the apostles and Nicodemus, and Joseph of Arimathaea, and even little, chief publican of Jericho, Zachaeus figure more prominently than Mary the mother of Jesus (Mary who later would conceive and bear James, and Joses, and Simon and Juda, and all of their sisters to Joseph her husband)?


Colossians 3:18-23

Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, (Touch not; taste not; handle not; Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?  Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.


I Timothy 4:1-6

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils: Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.  For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.


Hebrews 13:4

Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers GOD will judge.

[But certain lying perverters of truth, and enemies of God have succeeded in beguiling multitudes of people into believing otherwise.

Dear ones, if you believe the lie that Joseph did not consummate his marriage with Mary, and that she remained an infinitely perpetual virgin, thus purportedly remaining 'holier' than if she had become one flesh with Joseph, you are believing a Satanic lie.  Likewise, if you believe that Mary's mother bore Mary immaculately & miraculously, you are believing a hellish lie.  If you believe Mary was without sin, thus having no need of a saviour, then you are believing a Satanic Lie.

All of these Satanic Lies diametrically contradict GOD's Holy Word.  To believe these Satanic Lies concocted by exceedingly wicked Roman Catholic church leaders, you must disbelieve GOD Almighty, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, The Holy Bible-GOD's Holy Word, the prophets in the Bible, and the apostles of Jesus Christ, and disobey GOD Almighty, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, The Holy Bible-GOD's Holy Word, the prophets in the Bible, and the apostles of Jesus Christ!]
