For Christians – Is Mary the mother of God?

I always say Yes to that. My reason is this: If truly Christians believed Jesus to be God, Who came to earth in Human form and Mary was the woman that gave birth to him(Jesus). And If is the Mother of Jesus, Logically, It can be said that Mary is the mother of God. If it’s not true. Please how can you convince me

What do you think?

  1. Yes, of course. And I mean it in exactly the way that Rome sees it.

    To say that Mary is Mother of God is not so much to say something about Mary, but to say something about Christ – that he is God (and so his mother is the mother of God). It is to confess the hypostatic union and reject Nestorianism.

  2. Yes, she is the mother of God in a very literally sense as-in, she gave birth to Jesus who is also God. However, the Catholics has gone way overboard and ascribed to her unbiblical qualities such as “co-redeemer” and “Queen of Heaven”.

  3. It depends on your language and what you mean my Mother and God.

    The Catholic and Orthodox understanding of Mary that because Jesus is God in the flesh, and she birthed her she is therefore the “Mother of God”.

    They will often point to this passage:

    42 and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? – Luke 1:42-43

    And

    26 When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” 27 Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home. – John 19:26-27

    From that point of view, yes you could say that Mary is the Mother of God…
