Can you question the Virgin Birth and still be a Christian?
It’s a tough sell: A young, unmarried teenager gets pregnant, but the father isn’t a man but God himself. And the girl is a virgin — and (some believe) remains one even after she delivers a strapping baby boy.

That’s the story of the Virgin Birth, one of the central tenets of faith for the world’s 2 billion Christians. The story is embraced by every branch of Christianity, from Eastern Orthodoxy to Mormonism, Catholic and Protestant.

And yet, many theologians, pastors and other Christians say the Virgin Birth gets short shrift at Christmastime. Finding the idea hard to swallow, many believers would rather focus on the cute little baby in the manger instead of the unusual way he got there. ...

Psalm 37:1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

If you are a Christian the virgin birth cannot be questioned,it's one of the foundational truths of our life. From the unregenerate viewpoint it cannot be understood.with God given faith no explanation is necessary,without faith no explanation is possible.

Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
The only one qualified to stand as mediator between God and sinful mankind is the perfect God-man Jesus Christ. Seven reasons for the natural birth of Christ by means of a supernatural conception in the womb of a virgin are presented from the Scriptures. These highlight the significance of Christ's birth as God has revealed its accomplishments for the salvation of man. These include: 1) to confirm God's promises; 2) to reveal God the Father; 3) to be a faithful High Priest; 4) to put away sin; 5) to destroy the works of the devil; 6) to give us an example of a holy life; and 7) to prepare for the second advent.
summary for, [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=1223141459419]]]The Significance of Christ's Birth[/URL]

Since the Bible is our standard the answer to the question posed in the article is, "No."

"Some scholars say Paul doesn’t specify a Virgin Birth because there wasn’t one; others say his words imply Jesus did not have an earthly father."

Faith is the solution as usual.

Faith knows that God can and God did create the human body for His Son Jesus in the womb of Mary who at that time was a virgin.

Faith is the gift of God and not of human understanding or origin.

But with too many Arminians and Liberals in the churches these doubts about faith known truths are replaced by human speculations. That's how you get evolution, salvation by works and impotent sin.

If I may add my .02...
The Bible clearly teaches that man, because of their sin nature, cannot make atonement for their own son, much less anyone else's. The sin nature comes from the father, (or so my wife often tells me,) so if Jesus was not the virgin born Son of God, then He could not have made an atonement for His own sin, much less someone else's. He must be the Son of God for that.
Although not specifically stated, I believe that the reason God chose a virgin was so there would not be any confusion to the parentage.
As far as perpetual virginity; that is ludicrous, there was nothing in the Bible to suggest it. (I'm sure Mary having other children answers that RCC charge.)

Yup. The Mormonism thing, the ever-virgin Mary thing, the "branch of Christianity" thing etc. is to be expected from the Washington Post, which doesn't get much right anyway.
I'm glad you brought up the ever virgin Mary thing. To me that is one of the silliest thoughts or beliefs I have ever heard about. But to them, she really is the Queen of the Heavens and is worshipped. And since you and I came out of the RCC, we know that to be true.

Me too brother. To many, whoever names the name of Christ as Savior belongs to Christianity. This has long ranging implications because then whatever those false professing groups do, is attributed to my beliefs. So, a priest molests a small child and they report it as a Christian molesting a child. And it goes on and on. Thanks for your comment because it woke my aging brain up.
Oh, the answer to the question posed by the article is no. I don't understand nearly all the implications of the incarnation, but scripture clearly teaches it therefore I believe it.
