@alwaysabeautifullife So in the East we don’t believe in original sin, and without the doctrine of original sin, you can’t have the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception. There’s no need to say “Mary was protected from original sin” if you don’t believe in original sin in the first place, right?
So anyway earlier, this guy was like “In the East, they don’t believe in the Immaculate Conception, they think Mary was sinful like everyone else.”
BUT THATS NOT TRUE!!!!!!!!!?????
Like first of all we don’t believe that ANYONE inherits the sin of Adam. Secondly, if you straight go to an Eastern Divine Liturgy, we literally have a whole section where we sing about about how Mary is “spotless”, “sinless”, “pure”, and some translations even say “immaculate”!!!!
Like basically, we believe Mary was sinless, but we don’t believe in the teaching of the Immaculate Conception because we don’t believe in original sin and you can’t have either teaching without the other.
