Mary /Mother of God

Mary/ Mother of God
I'm only going to be a second here. Many Protestant denominations would say they have a problem with Mary's title as "mother of God" . Some would also argue that it is not scriptural .And then again, some would say that if you know scripture , then you know that the title"mother of God" is completely appropriate .
Lets turn our pages in the Bible, to Luke chapter 1 verse 43: "And how does this happen to me that the mother of my lord shall come to me ? "This verse right off the bat tells us that she is the mother of God. But lets go a little further .Go to John 19:26-27 : this is Jesus giving Mary to John :"Woman behold your son" "Behold your mother " .This literally did happen however in symbol this is also Mary being given the role of mother of all Christians . Lets take it to Revelations chapter 12 :" A great sign appeared in the sky ,a woman clothed with the sun ,with the moon under her feet ,and on her head a crown of twelve stars .She was with child ...(verse 5) "she gave birth to a son ,a male child , destined to rule all the nations with an iron rod.Her child was caught up to God and his throne.(verse17 ) The dragon became angry with the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring ,those who keep the commandments and bear witness to Jesus . "Mary is mother to all of us . She is the mother of Jesus the second person in the Trinity . This makes her mother of God . Remember the commandment" Honor thy father and mother" .We honor our mother Mary .She is our mother as well as God's mother .

God Bless all of you, Frankie
