My fellow true Christians,
Below I present to you a very short sermon on the subject of Mary being in hell. The true Christian would like your input relative to this utmost important subject. Since this is a matter of Christianity, the true Christian is not interested in responses from the heathen community. Thereby, satanists (that means ANYONE who is not a Bible-believing (KJV 1611 ONLY) true Christian, no exception) are asked to find themselves some other topics to express their crude "thoughts".
Without further a due, I encourage the true Christian brethren in the Lord to peruse the sermon below.
I hear so much nonsense about Mary, the mother of Jesus, from the Catholic and Orthodox false Christians, that I think we need to have an honest Biblical lesson on Mary. The simple fact is that the Holy Bible teaches that Mary, far from being the Queen of Heaven or Blessed Mother of God or some such fantasy, is actually probably roasting in hell this very moment.
This sad yet indisputable fact is shown by the following incident:
John 2:1: And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2. And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. 3. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 4. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
What, indeed, did the Mary have to do with the adult Jesus? Apparently as little as possible, because she did not believe in Him.
John 7: 1. After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. 2. Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was at hand. 3. His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest. 4. For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. 5. For neither did his brethren believe in him.
In this context, it is quite likely that brethren included all of Jesus close family, including his half brothers and his mother as well.
(On another point, this also disproves the superstitious nonsense about Mary retaining her virginity after Jesus birth. The Bible says otherwise, my friends!)
Indeed, Jesus in His Omniscience knew Marys unbelief quite well, and responded in kind by rejecting Mary:
Matthew 12:46: While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. 47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
For our Lord knew that his mother was not a True Disciple, but was simply another unbeliever with no place in His Kingdom.
Ah, I can hear your objection: didnt Jesus, when dying, entrust His mother (sinner those she was) into the care of His beloved disciple?
John 19: 26. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! 27. Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
This is correct but this does not pertain to her (highly questionable) salvation, since Jesus in His compassion was merely arranging for her earthly needs as an aged parent, probably lost to boot, without the Hope of Heaven to which to cling.
This Biblical social security arrangement also accounts for Marys appearance with the disciples in the opening of Acts:
Acts 1:13: And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. 14. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.
Although Mary was with the disciples, she was not necessarily one of them. In fact, in light of earlier passages, it appears that Mary was with them as a courtesy, nothing more, and there was no mention of Mary accepting Christ whatsoever.
Finally, one may ask: could not Mary have accepted Christ in her old age, even at the last minute, even as did the thief on the cross? Yes, it is possible, but dont you think the Bible would say so if she had? Certainly she had ample chance to do so earlier, yet she did not. She lived and almost certainly died as an unbeliever.
Conclusion: Mary is in hell. Denial or wishful thinking will not change the facts, my friends.
If Mary could speak to us today, I think her message would be: Dont make my mistake. Accept Christ today, before it is too late. Amen!
My most illustrious fellow true Christians, I will await your thesi on this subject.
In the name of the Lord,
