Rebuttal to cult confusion concerning the virgin birth:“Just imagine, John 3:16 says that God has ‘begotten’ Jesus! “Begotten” means – Something is begotten when it has been generated by procreation — in other words, it has been fathered by mean of sexual intercourse. Is this how Christians view God? That God begets?”
God the Father is free to bring forth His Messiah in any manner He chooses but from The Beginning (Genesis 3:15) God the Father chose to bring Messiah into the World through the seed of the Woman through the power and sovereignty and dominion of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:35). What does “only begotten” mean concerning our Messiah?The ” only begotten” in reference to Messiah means “the One and Only” “the Unique One” “the Only One of it Kind.”
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His [a]only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NASB) *see footnote = [a] Or unique, only one of His kind

Note: If you reject the deity of Jesus Christ, you are not saved nor are you secure in God the Father as you do not possess the indwelling Holy Spirit who testifies of Messiah’s deity and the necessity for same. If you deny Messiah’s deity, you will die in your sin (John 8:24). Jesus Christ was not born of the seed of man (Joseph-Adam) but of the seed of the virgin woman via the Holy Spirit (Genesis 3:15; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35) thereby circumventing the sin-nature transferred genomically though the man, Adam (1 Corinthians 15:22; Romans 5:12-21).
