THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
IS THE MOTHER OF GOD !

Holy Scripture shows this doctrine to be true...

Those who believe in Sola Scriptura, or "If it isn't in the Bible, I refuse to believe it", here are the 'proofs'.

Galatians 4:4, "But when the fullness of time came, GOD sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the law..."
Since the Son of GOD
IS GOD, I would be inclined to say, this verse does indeed say, a 'woman' gave birth to GOD. And, who was that woman?

John 1:1, "...And the Word was GOD."
This we all know that the Word is GOD.

John 1:14, "And the Word was made flesh."
Since the Word Incarnate is GOD, Mary provided His flesh. That makes Her The Mother of GOD.

Not convinced?
Okay, how about the third person of the Holy Trinity, The Holy Spirit, calling The Blessed Virgin Mary, The Mother of GOD?

Luke 1:41-43, "And it came to pass, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe in her womb leapt. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb! And how have I deserved that the Mother of My Lord should come to me?"

Mary had just greeted Elizabeth so how did Elizabeth, and the babe in her womb, know that Mary was pregnant with the Lord Jesus Christ?
It was because Elizabeth was
filled with the Holy Spirit.
All throughout the Bible, when a person is filled with the Holy Spirit, then The Holy Spirit is providing the words to speak through that person.
Elizabeth then said, "And how have I deserved that the
Mother of My Lord should come to me?"

Who is
"The Mother of My Lord?" Is it not, "The Mother of My GOD?"

John 20:28, 'Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and My GOD."'

There you have it, The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Holy Trinity, called the Blessed Virgin Mary,
The Mother of GOD.
How can anyone deny that Scripture?
How can anyone deny that The Blessed Virgin Mary is truly,
The Mother of GOD?
