Hello everyone, My name is Alex. I am here to debate on why Mother mary is so special. I cannot find a live chat to speak to Catholics anywhere on the internet. I am Christian. To throw these things out here: Yes, mother Mary conceived Jesus our lord savior for 9 months and during this she was made clean. Yes respect, but why so much? When you ask for forgiveness from Jesus, your slate is completely wiped clean"
My dear friend in Christ, as a Catholic Catechist, I am grateful for this opportunity; though the restriction in SPACE make any meaningful dialog difficult if not impossible:thinking:
REPLY: Your either under-informed or misinformed on multiple points MY FRIEND
Mary was CONCEIVED without ANY sin as a singular GIFT from God, for whom time does not exist [everything id present], on the MERITS of Her Son to be.
Your also incorrect on your presumption [yes I know it is what you are taught], that one simply has to ASK Jesus and He automatically forgives you.
1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
WHY them friend are these TEACHINGS in the Bible?
1 Jn 5: 16-17 " If any one sees his brother committing what is not a mortal sin, he will ask, and God will give him life for those whose sin is not mortal. There is sin which is mortal; I do not say that one is to pray for that. All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin which is not mortal.
AND John 20: 19-23
"On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send YOU." & when he had said this, he breathed on THEM, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
 If YOU forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if YOU retain the sins of any, they are retained."
Are you aware friend that GOD choose to use his priest in the OT for sin forgiveness? So why should Jesus [the same GOD] not choose to do so in the NT?
Take unto thee also Aaron thy brother with his sons, from among the children of Israel, that they may minister to me in the priest’ s office: Aaron, Nadab, and Abiu, Eleazar, and Ithamar"
And he shall make good the damage itself which he hath done, and shall add the fifth part besides, delivering it to the priest, who shall pray for him, offering the ram, and it shall be forgiven him"
God Bless you,
