Are trinitarians aware that calling Mary the Mother of God is debasing idolatry?
If Jesus is God in the Flesh, then Mary is the Mother of God in the Flesh, and ALL are guilty of idolatry who believe this nonsense.

I've always debated those that believe in Jesus is God, the trinity, I have always used scriptures to prove this point as when you read the Bible Jesus is always called the Son of God and Jesus himself said his Father is greater then he is(John 14:28) and at 1 Corinthians 11:3 we read that the head of Jesus is God and Jesus is the head of the congregation so it was always easy to prove that the trinity was a false teaching.
It hit me like a ton of bricks that the trinity teaching is non other than the belief of reincarnation which is a pagan belief and when the catholic religion was formed their tonsure was derived so to be the opposite of a group called "The Way" and part of a priest orientation (the tonsure) is to preach in a language not understood by the infidels, this is why they learn Latin.
Any serious Bible student, those that do not want their ears ticked(2 Timothy 4:3,4) knows the trinity is a pagan belief, now the new pope is making it a crime for those that are known as informants(they expose the filth) of the catholic religion, seems the new pope is trying to make things the way they used to be when they burnt people at stake for any disagreement of the pope and the catholic belief.
Saying God has a mother is blasphemy and a belittlement of the true God, it is a pagan belief of reincarnation adulterated into a Christian faith, this is why the Bible calls false religion the "Mother of Harlots Babylon the Great " and we see at Revelation 18:4 she is going to be destroyed and "all" who stay in her will be destroyed right along with her!
Saying God has a mother is not only idolatry, it's blasphemy for all clergy that teach this, isn't it hilarious a pagan faith of reincarnation is taught as a Christian belief, 2 Corinthians 4:3,4 sure is a true statement; 3 If, now, the good news we declare is in fact veiled, it is veiled among those who are perishing, 4 among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.

I have seen that many fall for the lies, half-truths, and ignorant claims that those of us who are Catholic, worship Mary.
I have come to the point that anyone who believes that hasn't done sufficient research and are easily mislead by the falsehoods of others.
The honorable and integral .....will study and research the truth of what we believe, even if it goes against what they believe.
What the honorable and integral ....will NOT do, is misrepresent us. They know to do such would be to bare false witness.
If you concluded that we worship her, then you have NOT educated yourself on the Church's Teaching.
Are you a lurker or a learner?

No its not Because Jesus is God the Son in human form and Mary is His Mother so she is the Mother of God.
Catholics do not worship Mary we love and Honor her just like her son did but Worship is for God and God alone and all Catholic's believe this. We put Mary Under the cross not over it or next to it

"Mother of God" is a term that is often misunderstood. It is a mistranslation of the ancient title for Mary, "Theotokos" which means literally "God bearer".
While Mary certainly was not the mother of YHWH, the God Who Eternally Was, Now Is, and Ever Shall Be, she was the one through whom He became incarnated as a man. This makes her the one to "bear" Him into this world. She became an honored vessel.
Protestants seldom use the title "Mother of God" for Mary precisely because of the confusion it causes. Even the Pope himself would not claim that Mary was the mother of YHWH who created the Heavens and the Earth. And even the most fundamental Protestant knows that it was she through whom God was made flesh to dwell among us.(See John 1:1, 1:14).

incorrect, for Jesus is Divine God who came in the flesh, by lowering himself to become a man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit in Mary a virgin. He was without sin at birth because He was not born in human sin but with a human and divine nature. Jesus is God on earth and Is Fully Man and Fully God.
His purpose to come as a man was so that as a man he would suffer in all ways like a man without sin and become the spotless and sinless sacrifice for man before a just and Holy God.
His death was the death of the body but not the death of His divinity. I say this because some will say, " God died and God is dead". No, Jesus in the flesh died, but God did not die. Jesus rose again by the power of the Holy Spirit being witnessed alive by many and then was transfigured after 40 days back to the right hand of God the Father in Heaven.
The very fact that God Himself called Jesus His beloved Son and again called Him God when he proclaimed " Your throne oh God is forever the scepter of righteousness" ( heb 1:1-8)
Idolatry would be to worship Mary instead of God. Mary herself proclaimed that she was in need of a savior. Mary is not divine, she was just a human mother for the Son of God.
We do not worship mankind but God only shall we serve and worship

No. Saying that someone is the mother of someone else, is NOT the same as worshiping them as a god.
Plus, a statement with a question mark at the end is NOT a question. Wanna try asking a real one now?

Concerning the Virgin Mary (Theotokos).
I believe that the nature of the Most Holy Virgin Mary is identical to our own. After Her free and conscious acceptance of the plan of salvation offered to man by God, the Holy Spirit overshadowed Her and the power of the Most High covered Her, and "at the voice of the Archangel, the Master of all became incarnate in Her." Thus our Lord Jesus Christ, the New Adam, partook of our nature in all things save sin, through the Theotokos, the New Eve. The nature of fallen man, the nature of Adam, which bore the wounds of sin, of degeneration, and of corruption, was restored to its former beauty, and now it partakes of the Divine nature. Man's nature, restored and regenerated by grace, surpasses Adam's state of innocence previous to the fall, since as the Fathers say, "God became man so that man could become God."
Thus St. Gregory the Theologian writes: "O marvelous fall that brought about such a salvation for us!" man, created "a little lower than the angels" (Ps. 8:5), can, by God's grace, surpass even the angelic state, and so we praise the Most Holy Virgin Mary, as: "More honourable than the Cherubim and beyond compare more glorious than the Seraphim." I reject all the doctrines, which are alien to the teachings of the Fathers, concerning original sin and the "immaculate conception of Mary." Likewise, I reject every doctrine which endeavors to distort the position of the Theotokos, Who, with a nature identical to ours, represented all humanity when she accepted the salvation offered Her by God. Thus, God is the Saviour of the Most Holy Virgin as well and She is saved by the same grace whereby all those who are redeemed are saved. She is not the "Mother of the Church," as though She were dissociated from the Church or superior to It., but rather She is the Mother of all the faithful of the Church, of Which She also is a part.Source(s): http://www.pravoslavie.ru/english/55141.htm

For the record: this individual is one of Jehovah's Witnesses.
For full disclosure, they aren't all like this. A few of them are decent individuals.

Do you have any idea how stupid this all sounds to an atheist? It's small and petty of me to say this, but, it does. You guys argue about tiny distinctions when you're whole scenario is entirely whacked.
