Is one sinless like Mary if they are baptized into the Catholic Faith and had their Original Sin removed?
- Lost ProphecyLv 78 years ago
With the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary when she was conceived in St. Anne's womb Jesus had filled her with Grace through the Holy Spirit. So the Blessed Virgin Mary was born without the sin of Adam (original sin) as it states in Scripture that the flesh of Jesus is uncorrupted. So the Blessed Virgin Mary was born into this world in obedience she never had the inclination to commit sin therefore she would have lived her life without ever committing any sin. And Catholic believe that after she died that her Son Jesus sent angels to retrieve her body in which it was assumed into Heaven. When we are born into this world we are born without Grace so we are under the sin of Adam (original sin) because we are of the sinful flesh of Adam. When we are baptized we receive the gift of Grace in which we are reborn into holiness. Even though we no longer have a sinful nature we make the choice to ether live within this Grace or obey the desires of the flesh (sin), because before we were reborn of water & Spirit (baptized) we were born of sinful flesh. The Blessed Virgin Mary was never born of sinful flesh, just as Jesus was never born of sinful flesh. And before anyone asks the Blessed Virgin Mary had been saved by her Son Jesus before she was even born into this world so He is her Savior.
Yes, the sin of Adam (original sin) is forgiven by God when we are baptized, we are no longer creatures of a sinful nature instead we are creatures with a good nature.Source(s): Catholic

The answer is No. Because it doesn't matter what faith you practice all of God's children are imperfect, thanks to Adam and Eve so everyone will sin from time to time.
What do you mean by original sin? Christians get baptized to wash away their old sins and start anew living as an apostle for Jesus. Even after baptism, because we are imperfect, will sin at times. So the way to fix that is to pray every morning, late morning, lunchtime, dinnertime and bedtime asking God for forgiveness.

You can be forgiven of sin, but that does not make you sinless. Christians around the world continue to sin daily, which is why we have Confession...and Purgatory.

Adam had dominion over all the earth until He willingly disobeyed God ; Since that day of the" Fall"
Sin has been passed on to every person ; God came to Earth as Jesus and His Blood was accepted by God as payment for any and all Sin ,The acceptance of His sacrifice by faith places a believer in to the family of God ,but it is a choice ;(Jesus) His Father is God so not of Adam's Blood:Therefore the curse of Sin was broken:
I have to disagree with the catholic church,,Mary could not "Atone for anyone's Sin;
It is a Blood Issue not how "good' you are:The Male carry's the blood line :

Obviously Mary indeed needed Christ as her Savior as Luke 1:47 "I rejoice in G-d my Savior!" From the moment of her conception the L'ord saved her from the ravages of sin. That he would do this for her was only fitting, in light of her mission to be the mother of J'esus, the Ark of the New Covenant who had been chosen to carry the Word of G-d in flesh in her womb.
In the Old Testament ark had to be pure, how much more the New Testament Ark (Luke 1:43*, 2 Samuel 6:9**). And also this passage underlines this fact in Exodus 25:11-21 - the ark of the Old Covenant was made of the purest gold for God's Word. Mary is the ark of the New Covenant and is the purest vessel for the Word of God made flesh. 2 Sam. 6:7 - the Ark is so holy and pure that when Uzzah touched it, the Lord slew him. This shows us that the Ark is undefiled. Mary the Ark of the New Covenant is even more immaculate and undefiled, spared by God from original sin so that she could bear His eternal Word in her womb.
" If John the Baptists was "filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb" (Luke 1:15***) to prepare him to prepare the way of the L'ord, how much more would Mary need grace to prepare her body and soul for the august task of carrying G-d himself within her! Not only does the reference to her being the ark of G-d imply her sinlessness, but the angel Gabriel names her "one who has been perfected in grace" (Luke 1:28). The phrase "full of grace" or here as "perfected in grace"is a translation of the Greek word kecharitomene. It therefore expresses a characteristic quality of Mary.
However, to render Mary perfect and completely free of any stain He even saved her from the sin of Original Sin to make of her the perfect Ark of the New Covenant, J'esus. So she was born without.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that she was "redeemed in a more exalted fashion, by reason of the merits of her Son" (CCC 492). She has more reason to call God her Savior than we do, because he saved her in an even more glorious manner!
* "But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”"

** David was afraid of the Lord that day and said, “How can the ark of the Lord ever come to me?” He was not willing to take the ark of the Lord to be with him in the City of David. Instead, he took it to the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite. The ark of the Lord remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite for three months, and the Lord blessed him and his entire household.

He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even before he is born."Source(s): The Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

I don't think that's how it works. Mary was born sinless, while we are born in sin but are forgiven through baptism.
- Exodus 20:1-17Lv 68 years ago
Nowhere in the Bible does it say Mary was sinless! It is a Catholic tradition to believe this. The same is true with original sin. The Bible says NOTHING that we bear the sin of Adam and Eve. We bear our OWN sins!

Please read Luke 1:46 "And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
:47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour., " Why would Mary need a savior if she is sinless ??

sin is any act against The Word and Will of God for man-kind...... the papist catholics have no Authority from God for their dogma and "traditions"... and they do not teach The Truth of The Salvation Message..... so all of their teaching is sin...... sin can not remove sinSource(s): God's Word..... and His promise to me in the instant of my salvation
