Q: Why do Evangelicals have such a problem with the Blessed Virgin Mary?

A: For a bunch of guys who claim to believe only what they can read in scripture, they sure do come up with a lot of “facts” that can’t be found ANYWHERE in the Bible!

They also seem to be totally unable to make any accurate, logical conslusions, based on what the Bible actually says.

For example, in 1st Kings 2:19 we get to see the court of King Solomon at work.

In the Royal House of David, we see that the queen is the MOTHER of the king, and the official job of the queen is to intercede with the king, on behalf of the people.

The late King David’s mom, Bathsheba approaches King Solomon’s throne. Seeing her, Solomon rises, bows, and has a throne set at his right hand for his mom, the queen.

With great respect, he shows the queen to her throne. Then Solomon gives her his undivided attention, listening attentively to all her requests, since both the 4th commandment and the traditions of the royal house require it.

In Luke 1:30 we see Mary and Gabriel:

Luk 1:30 And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.
Luk 1:31 Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb and shalt bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name Jesus.
Luk 1:32 He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father: and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever.
Luk 1:33 And of his kingdom there shall be no end.

From this we know that Jesus is both the son of God and the son of David. King of Kings and Lord of Lords. And since Mary is Jesus’ mother, and under God’s rules the mother of the king is the queen, Mary is the authentic queen of the royal house of David, and also the AUTHENTIC queen of heaven.

As such, her official job as queen is to intercede with her son for the needs of people, while Jesus remains the one intercessor with God the Father.

There’s absolutely no conlict with authentic scripture (or authentic Christianity and even, Judaism) here!

The Catholic Church has always clearly understood and taught all of this, while protestants (of late) conveniently ignore it, or even flat out, lie about it.

The Bible does little good if it is not fully understood and properly applied.

Our protestant brethren suffer from a level of confusion that rivals the old Tower of Babel. And it’s their own fault, since even a protestant can see from both scripture and genuine world history that Jesus founded only one Church for the purpose of our salvation … the Catholic Church … and Jesuse promised that his Church would last until the end of time, and that the gates of hell would NEVER prevail against it.

Go figure!
