MYTH #17 Mary is NOT the Mother of God

Yes Mary is the mother of God.

Luke 1:43 And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

In the same way that your mother gave birth to you as a complete person, body soul and spirit.
Jesus was 100% human and 100% God, When he was born he was both and the Blessed Virgin bore him as a child.

Does this mean that she gave birth to his divinity as God? No. No more than your mother created your soul but she is still your mother.

In the way a wine bottle holds wine. The bottle didnt make the wine but even without the wine inside it is still considered a wine bottle.

No one says the bottle only carried the grapes and not the wine.

Since Jesus is 100% Man and 100% God, Jesus was born as both when he came into the world. It is not as though Jesus came out and then God entered later.

Just as your parents each contributed to your genetic make up but they did not create your spirit, yet they are still your parents. Your mother gave birth to you, not just your body.

Jesus' birth was prophesied in Isiah 9:6 and in Luke 1

Yes God did send forth his son, and Jesus says

in John 10:30 "I and the Father are one"

if a great king wanted to dwell among his people as one of his people does he dress as a king? does he identify himself as a king? No, but people recognize him as a king by his actions.

Are you saying God cannot be amongst his greatest creation in the same flesh he made Adam and rule in heaven at the same time?

By you reasoning, God couldnt have been in the burning bush either?
