I am involved with a lengthy email debate with a Mormon. I’m feel it is important to support her search for God, but to give a strong account of my own faith without being offensive.
On the question of Our Lady, she has concerns over the Original Sin issue which I have dealt with, however, in explaining that as God’s Mother Mary was chosen by God as special, my Mormon friend has stated:
I don’t think Mary was the mother of God. I believe that she was the earthly mother of God’s son. I’m a bit confused with your belief. You believe that in the mysteries of God he could also sort of split his being? So that he could be the living Christ, God the Father, and the Holy Ghost, all at the same time?
My understanding is that this is exactly what we believe- that God is manifest to us in three ways, but I would appreciate some help in putting it across!
can we agree that even if Mary was born without OS she still wan’t perfect. She made mistakes like the rest of us yes?
I would be interested in any help you could give me- I am eager to give good account and anxious I will let God down!!
Thanks & God Bless
