You, the reader, are one of the admirable curious ones not afraid to investigate what clearly is unusual.
. . .in this case, the title of this webpiece: "panotma" you have now discovered to read: "Pa - not Ma."
. . . which seeming exclusion of mommy replaced with only daddy appears noxiously problematic as to viability or advocacy for humankind reproduction - if not also or instead sexist as to strangely-biased non-inclusive gender preference.
To cut to the chase, pa-not-ma alludes to the superiority of the Groom compared to the inferiority of the Bride [stand at attention in the congregation when the groom and not the bride enters during a wedding!]. . .and what specifically is referred to is the bride of Christ, commonly called: "The Church" (or "Mother" Church, by catholics).
Revelation 19:6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great crowd, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunderpeals, shouting: "Hallelujah! The Lord our God the Almighty reigns.
19:7 Let us rejoice and joyfully praise and give Him [NOT Mary nor Mohammed nor anyone else] the glory, because the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His Bride has made herself ready;
19:8 it was granted her to be clothed with beautiful linen, bright and pure because the fine linen is the righteous works of the saints.
19:9 And the angel said to me:, "Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb." And he [NOT "He"] said to me: "These are true words of God."
19:10 Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me: "You must NOT do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God - being that the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
And which cultic (such as those embracing islam and catholicism) worship angels (as for example Gabriel, or even "Raphael" who is never once mentioned in the entire Protestant Bible)?
Failure to accommodate to the concept of the overriding authority of THE Lord (Jesus Christ) over the sometimes pathetically-fallible "Church" is the lamentable basis for a lot of cultic diversionism, hostile misunderstanding, and non-justifiable prejudice against Jesus as Creator and Redeemer and Lord and against parts or all of the inspired contents of His saintly-authored Word: the Sacred-66-books Old-and-New-Testaments Holy Bible.
Romans 2:17 But if you call yourself a Jew and rely upon the Law and boast of your relation to God
2:18 and know His will and approve what is excellent, because you are instructed in the Law,
2:19 and if you are sure that you are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness,
2:20 a corrector of the foolish, a teacher of children, having in the Law the embodiment of knowledge and truth...
2:21 you then who teach others, will you not teach yourself? While you preach against stealing, do you steal?
2:22 You who say that one must not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?
2:23 You who boast in the Law, do you dishonor God by disobeying the Law?
2:24 As it is written: "The name of God is blasphemed among the nations because of you."
The apparently-hypocritical shortcomings (albeit non-deliberate) and occasional theory-and-practice failures of the tempted who stumble into regretted-then-repented-about sin in "The Church" are wrongly associated, by accusatory worldly judgmental, with their professed Lord Jesus - Who in stark contrast is perfect and without any transgressions of any type at any time.
First Peter 2:12 Maintain good conduct among the nations, so that if they speak against you as wrongdoers, they may see your good works and glorify God on the day of visitation.
The hypocritically-evil-themselves judgmental who reject Christianity and the Bible because of such infrequent deviances (albeit under non-solicited duress) of genuine Christians (not to mention pseudo or fake "christians") are being grossly unfair and use that as a satanic excuse to themselves avoid personal contact and communication with the perfect Creator, Jesus (the Son of God).
Colossians 3:23 Whatever your task, work heartily, as serving the Lord and not humans,
3:24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you are serving the Lord Christ,
3:25 because the wrongdoer will be requited for the wrong they have done, and there is no partiality.
And hence the clear differentiation between what "the church" (or female-gendered "Bride of Christ") sometimes (though not always!) says and does . . .contrasted with what "the Lord" (or male-gendered "Bridegroom" who is Jesus Christ, Head of the Church) always says and always does.
First Thessalonians 2:10 You are witnesses, and God also, how holy and righteous and blameless was our behavior to you believers;
2:11 because you know how, like a father with his children, we strongly urged each one of you and encouraged you and ordered you
2:12 to lead a life worthy of God, who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.
2:13 And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is: the Word of God, which is at work in you believers,
2:14 because you, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus which are in Judea; you suffered the same things from your own countrymen as they did from some jews,
2:15 who murdered both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out, and displease God and oppose all people
2:16 by hindering us from speaking to the nations that they might be saved -- so as always to fill up the measure of their sins. But God's wrath has come upon them at last (as it did when the Roman army destroyed Christ-murdering/Christians-persecuting jews in Jerusalem in 70 A.D. and the Communists destroyed the same type of jews in gulag purges, as did the Nazis in cremation-oven concentration camps in the 1940s)!
Such lack of proper distinction between the Lord Jesus and His sometimes-screw-up followers is not only endemic and a common occurrence among all the cults who misrepresent the Lord and distort His Message in Scripture, and even of various Protestant groups who patronize and bind themselves to adiaphoric customs and practices and traditions of men (and women) especially in positions of ecclesiastical prominence, but particularly in the Roman Catholic Church where the superfluous, carnal, and even quasi-demonic utterances and proclamations of popes, cardinals, priests, deacons, and so on are wrongly and errantly deemed equivalent to what God in Christ has clearly and understandably stated in Holy Writ (again, sometimes in direct opposition to and against the Bible in pompous and forced mandates of imposed heresies -- like that concerning indulgences for [alleged] atonement, [supposed] payment of sins for the superstition of purgatory and release from such, [purported] infallibilty of papal edits and creeds, imposition of the Apocrypha into the true Canon of Scripture, praying to or interceding with Mary and other dead persons (in violation against anti-necromancy law in the Torah).
Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, any one who practices divination, a soothsayer, or an augur, or a sorcerer,
18:11 or a charmer, or a medium, or a wizard, or a necromancer [one who prays to, petitions, or presumbly conjures up the dead],
18:12 being that whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD, and because of these abominable practices the LORD your God is driving them out before you.
To beg Mary (with a "Hail Omnipresent-and-Omnipotent-and-Omniscient Mary, Birth-Mother of the Triune God, have mercy on us sinners" and so on) instead of petitioning Jesus, or the Father, or even the Holy Spirit, is maryolatrous blasphemy. Mary was indeed the mother of the Son of Man, but THE Holy Father (not any pope) through the Holy Spirit, was the father of the Son of God. Initially-non-fkd-virgin-but-simultaneously-sinful Mary needed a Savior as does everyone else:
Luke 1:46 And Mary said: "My soul magnifies the Lord [not myself as some Co-Mediator],
Luke 1:47 and my spirit rejoices in God [not me] my Savior...
If the feisty and brave Jewish woman Mary knew that catholics were praying to or petitioning her instead of praying directly to Christ Jesus, she very well might furiously slap them in the face and profusely spit on them - with the approval of her Son Jesus:
Luke 11:27 As He said this, a [catholic?] woman in the crowd raised her voice and proclaimed to Him: "Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts that you sucked!"
Luke 11:28 But He said: "Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!"
A lot of mindless rote-mantra-mouthing catholics would attempt to justify their brainless blatterings to Mary with all sorts of screwy and devious irrationalizations, but the prudent and wise will be able to not merely abhor but even laugh at such absurd lunacy.
Common it is for a "Hail Mary" pass in football to refer to a desperation long-toss pass in the far distance.
Mary is not and was not a perpetual virgin, being that she obviously bore other children after she birthed Jesus her FIRST-born:
Matthew 12:46 While He was yet speaking to the people, hey, His [literal] mother [Mary] and his [probably-biological-sibling, not adopted] brothers stood outside, asking to speak to Him.
12:48 But He replied to the man who told Him: "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?"
12:49 And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, He said: "Here are my mother and my brothers!
12:50 Whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother." [and I hope that family-worshipping Vin Diesel reads that one!]
So, sometimes it behooves outsiders to imitate the speech and behavior of morality-and-Law-obedient Christians:
First Corinthians 4:15 Yhough you have countless guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers, because I became your father in Christ Jesus [the Catholics like that one, to call Paul: "Father Paul"!] through the gospel.
4:16 I urge you, then, be imitators of me.
4:17 Therefore I sent to you Timothy, my beloved and faithful child in the Lord, to remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach them everywhere in every church.
First Corinthians 11:1 Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
11:2 I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the [non-ceremonial] traditions even as I have delivered them to you.
11:3 But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a woman is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.
First Thessalonians 1:4 We know, brethren beloved by God, that He has chosen you [you are not "self-appointed"],
1:5 because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.
1:6 And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, because you received the word in much affliction, with joy inspired by the Holy Spirit;
1:7 so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedo'nia and in Acha'ia,
1:8 being that not only has the word of the Lord sounded out from you in Macedo'nia and Acha'ia, but your faith in God has advanced everywhere, so that we need not say anything [more at this time regarding this].
Hebrews 6:10 God is not injust as to overlook your work and the love which you showed for His sake in serving the saints, as you yet do.
6:11 And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness in realizing the full assurance of hope until the end,
6:12 so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
But sometimes the heathen and pagans are to NOT imitate those who claim to be the true believers:
Ezekiel 16:23 "And after all your wickedness (woe, woe to you! says the Lord GOD),
16:24 you built yourself a vaulted chamber, and made yourself a publicly-prominent place in every square;
16:25 at the head of every street you built your lofty place and prostituted your beauty, spreading your [indecently-exposed naked] legs [and nude/bare feet] to any passer-by, and multiplying your harlotry.
16:26 You also played the harlot with the Egyptians, your lustful neighbors, multiplying your harlotry, to provoke me to anger.
16:27 Hey, therefore, I stretched out my hand against you, and diminished your allotted portion, and delivered you to the greed of your enemies, the daughters of the Philistines, who were ashamed of your lewd behavior."
Matthew 23:1 Then said Jesus to the crowds and to His disciples:
23:2 "The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat,
23:3 so practice and observe whatever they tell you, but not what they do, because they preach, but do not practice.
23:4 They bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with their finger."
Ephesians 4:17 Now this I affirm and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the [heathen, pagan] nations do, in the futility of their minds;
4:18 they are [self]-darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of their hardness of heart;
4:19 they have become callous and have given themselves up to indecent-and-porno licentiousness, greedy to practice every kind of uncleanness.
4:20 You did not so learn Christ! --
4:21 assuming that you have heard about Him and were taught in Him, as the truth is in Jesus.
Titus 1:15 To the pure all things are pure, but to the corrupt and disbelieving nothing is pure; their very minds and consciences are [self]-corrupted.
Titus 1:16 They profess to know God, but they deny Him by their works; they are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good deed.
