What Happens After Love, Marriage, and Sex?
We believe in multiplication. From God’s commission in Genesis 1, “be fruitful and multiply,” to its echo in Matthew 28, “make disciples of all nations,” we see that we are all called to be spiritual mothers and fathers. On this episode of Well Said, Mary and Tory talk about one relationship we didn’t talk about in our Loved to Death sermon series, parenting. Join us as we discuss the impact, the struggles, and the cost, but the immense beauty and privilege we have in making disciples.
In our conversation, Tory mistakenly referred to the Virgin Birth as the “Immaculate Conception.” (Maybe timestamp where it happened, like minute 14ish?) It is important to note that the term “Immaculate Conception” is a distinct and significant doctrine in Catholicism, which asserts the sinlessness of Mary. Tory upon hearing this immediately caught it and had a facepalm moment and wanted to clarify! It is important to know that this doctrine is not held by what we believe the Scriptures tell us. While Mary was a significant fulfillment of Scripture, she was not without sin. Jesus’ sinlessness came from the conception of the Holy Spirit, who is both sinless and God, therefore imputing this sinlessness to Jesus. While it is right to honor Mary as a chosen vessel of God, she like the rest of us was fallen, and in need of a Savior; something that gets murky in the Catholic doctrine of the Immaculate Conception.
