Q: Did Mary Remain A Virgin?
A key fundamental fact of the Christian faith is the virgin birth of Christ. This required the supernatural conception of Christ in the womb of the virgin Mary without the seed of man (Matthew 1:23,25).
Did Mary remain a perpetual virgin throughout her life? With the Bible as the authority in this regard; we can firmly conclude that Mary did not remain a virgin. According to Matthew 13:55; Mark 6:3; and Galatians 1:19... Mary was blessed with the ability to be fruitful by giving birth to several more children by her husband, Joseph.
To suggest that Mary remained a perpetual virgin has been a tool of deception instigated by Satan to elevate her to a status of deity. The ultimate aim in suggesting that Mary remained a virgin throughout her life is to compete with the biblical perspective of Jesus Christ and ultimately diminish the authenticity of God's Word..
It is very disconcerting to know that all who exalt Mary as the mystical Ever Virgin are entreating an image that resembles a pagan deity and not the Mary of the Bible.
