Mary: Mother, Queen, Warrior

The Ascension Team

Today’s show, is from a talk I gave at the Fullness of Truth Conference last year. It was a weekend long conference on Mary from an apologetics standpoint. My talk was on Mary and spiritual warfare. Typically someone like Dave VanVickle would give this talk. In fact, Dave sorta did give this talk because in my preparation for this, while driving from Houston to San Antonio, I listened to Dave’s Ten Principles of Spiritual Warfare in Every Knee Shall Bow and it helped me formulate my thoughts.

Three things to note:
One, how I weave the kerygma into a talk on Mary. Two, I also emphasis personal prayer and devotion, because you can be very smart without being very holy. And finally, what good is it if we all this knowledge if we have not love.

Snippet From the Show
Mary’s yes, her
fiat, her “let it be done to me according to thy word,” became the yes of every disciple after that. Darkness flees where Mary is. Why? Because there is no disciple in the history of the world that was closer to Jesus than she.
