The BBC is reporting that three Scottish sisters insured themselves for one million pounds in case they became the new virgin mother of Jesus Christ at the occasion of Christ’s second coming. The insurance was taken in order to cover the expenses of bringing up Christ if one of them was chosen to become the virgin mother.
In order to receive the insurance money, the woman who becomes the new mother of Jesus Christ has to prove that the child is actually Christ.
This is an amazing story! I just wonder: how do you prove that you gave virgin birth to a baby boy? Now, that is a tough question, and I do not have a good answer that will satisfy anyone.
And how do you prove that your baby boy is Jesus Christ? Maybe you just need some swaddling cloths, a manger, a few shepherds, and some kings bearing gifts. But, all of these things have already been done.
I am glad that the burden of proof that the new baby is Christ rests with the women.
