Today is Immaculate Conception Day in the Roman Catholic Church.

This doctrine teaches that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was conceived and born without sin. This, as any Bible student knows, is a blatant lie and totally violates the Word of God.

The Bible says,

Romans 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Mary was born a sinner just like you and I. She had to observe all the sacrifices ordered by Moses in the law of the Old Testament, just like any other Jew. She needed a Savior just as much as you did.

Luke 1:46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

Mary, in her own words, told us she needed a Savior.

Mary also had to offer a sacrifice of purification like any other new mother in Israel.

Luke 2:22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;

Mary would have offered a sacrifice at that time like all Jewish women.

The sinless nature of Jesus was not passed backwards to Mary simply because she was his mother. The miracle of it all was that the sinless Son of God could be born to a sinful woman. 

Indeed, if the sinless nature of Jesus could reverse back to Mary, why not to Mary's mother and father, and back even more generations? This is not a stupid question since Catholic theologians have debated this very question, wondering if they should assign immaculate conception on back a few more generations.

This doctrine is totally heresy, and anyone who promotes it is asking to be damned to eternal Hell fire for profaning the Word of God which does not teach this. The most wicked aspect of it is the implication that Jesus got his divine nature from his mother, not because he was God. That is blasphemy.

Let us not leave this discussion before we note that Mary was indeed a very special lady in the history of humanity. Every Jewish woman dreamed of being the mother of the Messiah, so Mary was very blessed for being chosen by God for this privilege. 

Luke 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

Instead of blaspheming the Word of God and claiming this heretical doctrine of the Immaculate Conception, how about simply thanking God today for sending his Son to die on Calvary in your place and washing your sins away?

Isaiah 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

If you want to remember Mary today, remember her as a godly example to all women to be available to do the work of God in their home and family.
