Some things that REALLY need to be cleared up about #TheNativity #Nativity #NativityScene and the #Christmas story

#MerryChristmas

1. #Mary was a consecrated virgin to the Lord. She was a handmaid (Psalm 116:16) who served in the Temple while young.
2. She had finished her service there, and #Joseph and she married, but were never going to consummate the marriage. She was dedicated/consecrated to God. It was a Josephite marriage for their mutual benefit and protection.
3. This is why Mary is confused at the #Annunciaton, when the angel told her she would conceive a son. She was a young, healthy married woman about to enter her husband's home. Mary wasn't dumb. She knew how babies are made. Yet she's confused about how she'll have a baby.

1/ What does the #Quran have to say about #Christmas, and what does this ruined church located between #Jerusalem and #Bethlehem have to do with it?
2/ The Quran contains its own version of the Nativity story (Q. 19:22-27), in which Mary is said to withdraw to a remote place and to be overcome by the pains of labor. She then finds shelter under a date palm tree

3/ In agony, Mary cries out for help, and a voice tells her that God has placed a brook beneath her for her relief. The voice then instructs her to eat the dates of the tree and drink the water of the brook. She does so, and shortly after, gives birth to Jesus

[2] "Belgium International Harvester COrporation"

Red alert -

Belgian Congo was where the #Shinkolobwe mine was located

And even as of 1955, American/global corporations were eager to control the #uranium in Congo
