The Greatest Birth Ever

Updated: 3rd Dec. 2020.

He is God
But consented to become a man
Delivered of a virgin lady
So He could be the Saviour.

Taking on the nature of Man
He became flesh and blood.
But as He is the seed of the Holy Spirit
He wouldn’t inherit the sin-nature of man.

His birth was not a happenstance
But a fulfillment of divine prophecy
Part of Heaven’s grand design
To redeem mankind from depravity.

In a time like this, yearly
We celebrate the greatest birth ever
The Son of God, and the Son of man
Born to be the Saviour of the world.

Immanuel – God with us
Jesus – Saviour, King, Judge
Wonderful, Counsellor
The everlasting Father.

    Virgins can’t give birth. It takes sex between a man and a woman for a woman to give birth. So isn’t the virgin birth story a religious myth? Ghosts cannot get women pregnant, so the Holy Ghost didn’t impregnate her. She was playing around.

      The Virgin birth of Jesus is an actual event. I don’t expect you to believe it because you have shown that you don’t believe anything about God.

      Unfortunately, you have continued to dwell in error, criticising or outrightly condemning what you don’t understand.

      Even in medical science, pregnancy without sex happens; why do we have artificial insemination? You have forgotten that when you stated that it takes only sex for a woman to give birth. Can you now see how mistaken you are?

      You wrongly stated that Mary was playing around so she got pregnant (ostensibly by a man). But the Bible records that she got pregnant before she even had any contact with any man. And the child Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit.

      Again, you cannot understand or accept that because your heart doesn’t contemplate God. And that’s sad.

        They never had artificial insemination back in the day of the virgin Mary. The only way a woman could get pregnant was through sex. So your suggestion about artificial insemination was a red herring.

        How could any woman give birth through some ghost, whether holy or not?

        As for not believing in any god, It is true that I am an atheist. All this means is that there is no real evidence for the existence of God, so the existence of any god is a matter of low probability. Now, if God does exist, then I choose to believe that God is a God of compassion, infinite mercy and loving-kindness. He/she/it probably doesn’t exist but, if you live your life with compassion, mercy and kindness then if God exists, you will be ding his/her or its will.

        Have a great day, Victor!

          I think you missed the drift of my comment here. I didn’t say there was A.I. in Mary’s time.

          My point was that as we have A.I today which can result in pregnancy without sex, it wasn’t a big deal for God to get Mary pregnant by the Holy Spirit without sex then.

          I can imagine how difficult it is for you to wrap your brain around such claim, since you don’t believe in God. And about that, I can’t help you except you change your mind about God.

          For the records, the Holy Spirit is not some ghost as you put it. He is a Person, the third part of the God-head.

          You can blame your atheistic mind if you can’t step up your understanding to the point of grasping what I just explained above.

            Do you believe a story just because it is in a holy book?

            You don’t believe that Alexander the Great was born of a virgin, do you? You know it’s a myth. Similarly, why should we not treat the story of the virgin birth of Jesus as a myth?


            • VictorsCorner Sep 4, 2019 / 6:44 pm

              Because it is not a myth. Jesus is the only person born by a virgin. It is a historical fact.

              Because the Bible is the inspired word of God. None other.

                Hi Victor,

                You do know that the 4 canonical gospels were most probably written some 40-70 years after Jesus’ death. All 4 Gospels were written by anonymous authors. The first called Mark was probably written somewhere about 70 CE and knows of no virgin birth. Only the Gospels Matthew and Luke have birth stories and these were probably written some 50-55 years after Jesus died when the legend of the virgin birth was added to the story. John (written nearly 70 years after Jesus’ death also has no birth story. This latter Gospel turns Jesus into a god.

                  I feel like you know what you are doing here: deliberately distorting the truth and consciously misrepresenting facts to serve o
                  your deceptive ends.

                  You have not been the first person to lie against Jesus and the Gospels. But no lie has ever been able to stop the power of God. You are just wasting your time here pedling falsehood. Enough please!

                  For the records, Jesus was born of a virgin. That’s clearly stated in the Bible and we have discussed earlier. It’s not my fault if your brain can’t comprehend it.

                  Secondly, contrary to your claim, the Gospels were not written anonymously. Each of them bear their writer’s name. How could you even miss that?

                  What you don’t know is that each of the Gospel were initially written for different audiences. That’s why the individual approach of the authors may appear different. But the central figure remains Jesus. No one who genuinely reads the Gospel would miss that point.

                  Believe or not, Jesus is God-incarnate.

                    You should check your facts before accusing me of lies.


      • John Arthur Sep 2, 2019 / 4:27 am

        Hi Victor,

        Have you read the book “The Myth of God Incarnate” edited by John Hick (SCM press)?


        • VictorsCorner Sep 2, 2019 / 6:09 pm

          Hi John, no I have not. And I don’t intend to. The previews online I just read have nothing to motivate me to want to read the book.
