Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

This will probably lead to another discussion in that RC's believe she did not have any other children. In fact, she forever remained a virgin.

True, which is easily disproven of course.

They must do that to put Mary on a higher plane than ordinary women, so they could worship her as the queen of heaven.  :classic_rolleyes:

Sex in marriage is not a sin .. 

 

1Co 7:2  Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 
1Co 7:3  Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. 
1Co 7:4  The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 
1Co 7:5  Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

 Barring some reasons why it may not be possible, I think it would be sinful if Joseph and Mary didn't have sexual relations.

 

My question is:

 Does the RC church want to present her as an ever virgin in thinking that somehow if she wasn't it would make her less holy and pure?

News Feeder,
re:  "What does the Bible tell us about Mary, the mother of Jesus?"

 

1. That the Mesiah only spoke to her 3 times. 

 

2. That He only spoke 2 times with regard to what someone said about her .  

 

3.  That Mary is not mentioned by any of the writers in the New Testament Epistles including the one to the church at Rome and the two by Peter.

    • Systematic Theology and Biblical Theology

      Richard B. Gaffin, Jr.   Not so widely known among the writings of John Murray are two articles on systematic theology which appeared in this Journal in 1963 . These articles are important because, written just a few years prior to his retirement, they provide us with his matured reflection on the field in which he labored with such distinction as a teacher and writer. Significant also is the fact that of the two articles the second in its entirety is given over to the relationship of sys

      CLEVELAND, OH—Has Democratic candidate/heartthrob Beto O'Rourke gone too far? Despite being a white male, Robert Francis has started to win the hearts and minds of the Democrats, in part because of his impassioned speeches about things---not because of what they actually say (even Beto's not 100% sure what his speeches are about), but because of his charisma as he leaps up on tables, barstools, and countertops to implore his fellow Americans to vote for him or something.

      WOMAN'S ROLES IN THE CHURCH   Women’s ministry and roles in the church Before I even address this issue, I want to say at the forefront that women can be functional members of church gatherings and they can speak in the meetings, but there are parameters to this order as well and these become necessary when they overlap with the order of a family and their roles with their husbands and in relation to men in general. I am fully aware that this understanding is not easily received
