The Assumption
Revealed dogma or bold assertion?
Truth solemnly established by the Catholic Church, the Assumption of Mary or removal, was for centuries the subject of controversy and heated discussions. According to recent dogma (1950), "the Immaculate Mother of God, Mary ever virgin, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory. "So dogma revealed by God, or bold assertion?

There is "no direct mention of the Assumption in the Bible" AA90. In 13 th century Thomas Aquinas recognized that "it is impossible to make a dogma of the Assumption as the Scriptures do not teach. "We found no trace of celebrations or worship in his honor before the third century. AA91

The belief in the Assumption

not based on a scriptural basis or on a specific text

early days of the Church.

This doctrine is a theological dilemma
thorny. Mary is really dead before
his alleged ascension? It would be difficult
give him to have escaped death,
privilege even Christ did not.
And if she is dead, then why?
Because it is the punishment of original sin,
which Mary was preserved, according to
doctrine of the Immaculate Conception.
"Scripture does not directly teach
the Immaculate Conception. The early Fathers
the Church considered Mary as holy,
but not absolutely sinless. "AA93

"Scripture does not directly teach the Immaculate Conception.

(...) The early Church Fathers saw Mary as a saint, but not entirely without sin. "

The text of Luke 1:28 is the basis for this assertion. "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. You are blessed among women, and the fruit of your womb is blessed. "(Maredsous, Bible peoples). But the interpretation ignores the fact that the Greek term is not explicit. Other versions put 'full of grace' (Jerusalem, Osty), the object of the divine favor '(Crampon-Tricot),' the Lord grant you his favor '(Living Word) or "highly favored" (TMN ).

Woman of faith but imperfect, Marie also needed redemption. A fter the birth of her first child, Mary offered a sacrifice for sin (Leviticus 12:1-8, Luke 2: 22-24). In addition, "Virginity after childbirth is not taught in the NT. "AA92 It can not therefore be considered as an intercessor with God. - John 14:6,14.
Hyphen between Christianity and ancient religions of mother goddesses, Mary is certainly one of the most powerful religious symbols in the history of the West. But that Marian devotion is inconsistent with the original Christianity. AA94
