Obligated to Mythology: Modern Romanism's Continued Exaltation of Mary in the Face of Biblical Truth and Historical Reality

Obligated to Mythology: Modern Romanism's Continued Exaltation of Mary in the Face of Biblical Truth and Historical Reality

Ok, just let me say that I hate titles with a passion. I particularly hate the Anglo-Catholic and High Church Arminian practice of calling their minister, "father". But I am equally averse to the Baptist and Pentecostal habit of calling someone "brother" or "sister" so and so. It seems to me that it smacks of some sort of spiritual superiority. But with that said, I like what Brother Jimmy White has to say in this article. He's surely right when he calls the Roman Catholic doctrine of the immaculate conception of Mary a "myth". In fact, most of what the Roman Catholics and Anglo-Catholics and Eastern Orthdox teach about Mary is in fact mythological. Although the Eastern Orthodox stop short of the immaculate conception, they still teach the perpetual virginity of Mary and worship her and pray to her. Such idolatry cannot and must not be tolerated in Protestant and Reformed churches, especially Anglo-Reformed churches.

May the peace of God be with you.
