Question: Is Mary the "Queen of Heaven?" Answer: Mary is dead. She is awaiting the resurrection at the return of Jesus Christ. Nowhere in Scripture do we find that Mary was assumed into heaven as its "Queen." Then what is the origin of the false doctrine that Mary is "Queen of Heaven"! In Jeremiah 7:18 God forbids the worship of the pagan "Queen of Heaven." God, the Father, is supreme King. He has no mortal woman as His Queen! The spreading doctrine that Mary is the divine "Queen of Heaven" stems directly from rank paganism. Here is its origin. "The worship of the goddess-mother with the child in her arms continued to be observed in Egypt till Christianity entered... Instead of the Babylonian goddess being cast out... her name only was changed. She was called the Virgin Mary, and, with her child, was worshipped with the same idolatrous feeling by professing Christians... as formerly by pagans" (Hislop, p. 82).
