I take a different path to get there, but I think 'norm summed up the most important fact: nothing has ever been believed "always, everywhere, and by all". Even St. Vincent admitted that, at least some of the time, this wouldn't work, and in his Commonitory he brought up objections and tried to navigate what to do when problems arose.

Except for the apostolic faith within the New Covenant.  :police:

Roman Catholics believe the Theotokos was born without son.

Well, so was I (and without daughter, too), but I don't think that makes me immaculate.

Please forgive me if I confused you. That is a typo. The word "son" in that sentence should be "sin".

LakaYaRabb, I realize that, just couldn't resist a straight line like that! :D

No offense was intended!
