Re: End times prophecy checklist...

Mary's sinlessness was allowing God to remain who He is and not immerse Himself in sin ... as the "bearer" of Him who is with us, and presented Him with a pure "ark" for his earthly dwelling... does this help ?

Why would He leave out sin? before Christ was human He had to know of sin, why did the Father send him in the first place if not for the express condemnation of sin ? why would He have sent the Christ if He wasn't alrteady aware of sin and it's c...

take a look at this. a very small sampling of verse, if you think just because God is capable, and he has to work to your likings, not his own ... and you need bible verses to help you see this ... http://www.journal33.org/godworld/html/godhates.htm it is, imo, ridiculous to think God would give His...

I said Mary had to be sinless, in God's plan for the conception of the already and always sinless Christ, by the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. God could have done this any way...
