Do Catholics believe that Mary was born sinless? If so, then since God is the only one who is sinless, then the Catholics must think that Mary is God. If so, then since Mary isn't included in the trinity, then the Catholics worship 2 Gods which breaks the first two commandments.  Otherwise, how do you explain your claims? Huh

Nice dodge. But it still doesn't justify your beliefs. Sorry.  Wink

Carico,

 I'd like to welcome you to the forum, but just to be clear: this is an Eastern Orthodox forum and NOT a Roman Catholic forum.  Your questions suggest that you have little understanding of the two.

In Christ,
Gabriel

What happens if we told you we have a completely different understanding of sin then the legalistic action against God.

I can't answer the question until you tell me who you are. But if you want to leave that vague, then of course, neither I, nor anyone can know who you are. So will you answer my question honestly? if not, then I can't answer your question either. Sorry.  Smiley

You come to an Orthodox Christian discussion forum and mistake us for Roman Catholics?  Seriously now, if you're going to walk in here looking to pick a fight with us, the least you can do is a bit of research to see that we're not Roman Catholics and do not believe as they do.

If you say you aren't Catholics, then I don't know who you are. If you won't tell me who you are then I can't know who you are. So why are you refusing to tell me who you are then blaming me for not knowing who you are?  Shocked  Is it some sort of secret? if so, why?  Huh

Because I don't play telephone. I'd rather hear it from you yourselves...unless you're ashamed of your beliefs. I thought you could give me an honest answer, but it appears I was wrong. So if this indirect relating is an example of your religion, then I can tell you right now, your religion is not about honesty.

It surely is. I think the tag is on the money.

We, Orthodox, have discussed this here before. If OP can't do a search and find the threads, his keyboard should be taken away.

At this point...this is pointless.

Brother we can tell you the answer to the question but you could be discusted and leave. But the thing is to truly understand the question you have to understand why we believe it. I can tell you it won't work with your current theological schema and you won't ever want to know anything about us. Go and do some research on the Eastern Orthodox church and you can come back and ask some questions.

Since you're acting on what you believe us to be, you can start by answering the question I submitted to you a few posts ago.  Whom do you think we are?  No one here is required to explain anything to you if you won't study us on your own time.

I'm trying to find out what you people on this forum believe. And so far, it's been harder than trying to pin down an evolutionist. After all, I was asked; "Whom do you think we are?" So who is we? And you guys blame me for not knowing you you are when you yourselves don't seem to be able to explain it!    Roll Eyes

If you wanted to inquire about the beliefs of the people on this board (presumably you're talking about the majority of the members of this board and don't want my opinion on the matter, in particular)...why didn't you ask them that question instead of posing a vague question about Latin Theology/Mariology?

I must question the motives of anyone who asks one question then demands another, unstated one, be answered in its stead.

Because I don't play telephone. I'd rather hear it from you yourselves...unless you're ashamed of your beliefs. I thought you could give me an honest answer, but it appears I was wrong. So if this indirect relating is an example of your religion, then I can tell you right now, your religion is not about honesty.

If you wanted to inquire about the beliefs of the people on this board (presumably you're talking about the majority of the members of this board and don't want my opinion on the matter, in particular)...why didn't you ask them that question instead of posing a vague question about Latin Theology/Mariology?

I must question the motives of anyone who asks one question then demands another, unstated one, be answered in its stead.

Again, I was asked "Whom do you think we are?" So I can't answer the question until I first know who We is. So once again, who is WE? And if you won't tell me, then you are not interested in honest conversation but rather badgering, baiting and evasion. Angry

Carico, we refers to the body of seekers and believers that make up OrthodoxChristianity.net. You came to an Eastern Orthodox forum website---hence, the name Orthodoxchristianity.net. No one is evading anything, but some of us find it annoying and careless that you neither looked at the title on the Home Page---thus confusing us with Roman Catholics---and by also not looking up the question in the Search Bar, also located on the Home Page. Smiley It is right for some of us to say to you that you should do some research and observation first before you start posting and especially before you start arguing. Smiley

I want to know who the WE in the first question posed to me represents. It's that simple.

It has been said many times in this thread:

This is an Orthodox Christian discussion forum, as can be seen in the name www.orthodoxchristianity.net.  Who else do you think 99% of the members of this Orthodox Christian forum are?  We're certainly not Buddhists.

That's nice. But what I mean is, why don't you ask your question on a Roman Catholic forum? Why come to an Orthodox Christian forum and ask them what the Catholics believe? Isn't that playing telephone?

I'd rather hear it from you yourselves...unless you're ashamed of your beliefs.
Oh, I'm not ashamed of my beliefs. In fact there is no room for either pride nor shame for us in our lives as Christians. To hold something back from shame is actually pride anyway.

I thought you could give me an honest answer, but it appears I was wrong.
I have no control over how you choose to perceive the world. But lets look at things objectively for a minute. You came here, thinking we were Catholics, we correct you, then you insult our Faith (without even knowing what we believe) like a raving derelict drunkard, and then you wonder why no one takes you seriously. Could it possibly be you that has the problem?

So if this indirect relating is an example of your religion, then I can tell you right now, your religion is not about honesty.
Orthodox Christianity is not a religion. It is the antithesis of it. Orthodoxy is the only cure for the neurosis that is "religion".

No, and neither are catholics Buddhists. So sorry, just because you're not Buddhists doesn't mean that your beliefs are crystal clear.  Roll Eyes  And considering that the responders in this thread have done everything BUT answer the OP, then your beliefs are anything but crystal clear. So you might try clarifying them instead of being vague about them then criticizing others for not knowing what they are.  Roll Eyes So, are you proud of your beliefs and want others to go to heaven for hearing them? Or are you ashamed of them because you believe they're contradictory? So which is it?  Huh

Carico just stop. What you are doing is so rude its like jumping in to someones conversation and abusing them for no particular reason. You have been on this site for 1 hour and you have been put on moderation, do you think that this is a reason to re-think your behaviour? and no it's not because your protestant as we have many protestant posters who don't come here to abuse us but rather learn and us learn from them as brothers and sister in the body of Christ.

Do Catholics believe that Mary was born sinless?

I'm not Catholic, but it's my understanding that they believe that the Virgin Mary was immaculately conceived, and thus born sinless.

Quote
If so, then since God is the only one who is sinless, then the Catholics must think that Mary is God. If so, then since Mary isn't included in the trinity, then the Catholics worship 2 Gods which breaks the first two commandments.

They don't think that Mary is God.

Quote
Otherwise, how do you explain your claims?

We don't accept what the Catholics believe on this point.
