My ‘born again’ experience’ was in a Protestant environment. Following that, I have been reading a lot - most of them Protestant authors (Catholic bashers like Rebecca Brown). I have been led to verify and authenticate the quoted verses in these books. I have also read the Poem of the Man God ( Maria V). The more I read from Catholic bashers and started to verify biblical references, I was becoming a stronger and stronger Catholic - (bizarre?).
I have no problem accepting M Mary’s EVER virginity and can defend it fairly well with Scripture. However, I am still struggling to understand this particular verse:
Matt 1: 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took his wife, 25 but knew her not until she had borne a son; and he called his name Jesus.
Our Protestant brothers, will insist that this means that whilst M Mary was a virgin when Jesus was born, she bore other children subsequently to Joseph. Please help.
