Discussion for John 5:43

  • Mike Acosta on John 5:43
    Why is it wrong to pray to the Virgin Mary? I know that it takes away the reason for Jesus coming and dying for our sins, but is there any benefit to pray to Mary as some believe?
  • Chris - in Reply on John 5:43
    Mike, yes, it is very wrong to pray to the Virgin Mary - in fact she hasn't even been a virgin since the birth of Jesus, since she had many more children (Mt 12:46-50, 13:55,56 & others).

    Jesus alone makes intercession for us (Rom 8:34) & His Spirit also intercedes on our behalf when we are unable to pray properly, maybe in ignorance (Rom 8:26). So the whole purpose of prayer, whether in praise & worship or in requesting from the Lord, is to direct our prayer to the Lord only without any other mediator (whether a priest, Mary or another Saint). To do that, means that we have no confidence that our prayers to God will be heard & so we need an intermediary between God & man. Our Intermediary can only & will only be Christ Jesus. To go to another means that we do despite to Christ's Holy & Blessd position with the Father.

    1 Timothy 2:5

    For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

    There is no benefit to pray to Mary. Because she is not God. It is abomination to pray to her.

    1st commandment: Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

    Exodus 23:24

    Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.
  • Valarie on John 5:43
    I can not seem to find the scripture regarding thankfulness. I remember I was in jail and there was a woman that was very angry . I was just an infant in CHRIST at that time. But I remember I was giving GOD thanks for all things. She was very angry and had the attitude how could I give thanks for being in jail. Of course I was thankful because in my heart I realized things could always be worse, but also I had read a scripture saying giving thanks for all things and I showed it to her and she was surprised. But now I can not find that scripture. Please help. Thank you.
  • LaVonne - in Reply on John 5:43
    Valarie, There are many verses concerning being thankful. King David is most thankful in the book of Psalms

    Psalm 106:1 Psalm 107:1 Ephesians 5:20 1Thessalonians 5:18. Also in the New Testament, Our Lord Jesus

    always gave thanks to God the Father. I believe our Father God wants us to always come before him with

    a thankful heart. " May the Lord bless you and keep you" numbers 6:24

    what versus indicate that The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit are one ? I don't mean physically, but characteristically...
  • Chris - in Reply on John 5:43
    You could also look at:

    Isa 9:6; Mt 28:19; Jn 1:1-14; 5:18; 10:30-33; 14:9-11; 15:26; 17:22; Phil 2:5-8; Col 2:9; Heb 1:6; 1 Jn 5:7.

    I've just given them in book/verse order to make it easier for you to look up.

    However, when you say "characteristically" & the above references are not what you're looking for, then as you read the Gospels, you will see the character & work of Jesus Christ & His Spirit are in line in every respect to that of God the Father (i.e. in Love, Truth, Justice, Holiness, fulfilling the Plan set out for the World).
  • Andrew Kingsly Raj in replying Naneki - in Reply on John 5:43
    8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

    9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

    11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
