No mother of a man has ever remained a virgin. Have you seen how this birth offers us a twofold consideration regarding the One who is born? If he had been born like us, he would have been a man, but if he kept his Mother a virgin, it is clear, for those who know how to think, that the One who is born is God.

Theodotus of Anchyra, Homily 2, 3; PG 77, 1372 D-1373 A.

Christ was born from a virgin for our salvation. If we deny this truth, we deny His divinity, and we are still in our sins.
