Greek Orthodox Church

Greek Orthodox Church, Cape Town by RobW

Formerly part of the Orthodox Church, the Greek Orthodox Church became self-governing in 1833 after the fall of Constantinople to the Turks. The See of Athens is its primacy of honor.

Unlike the Catholic Church, the Greek Orthodox Church does not believe in the dogma of Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary.

Orthodox theologians reacted negatively to the new dogmas proclaimed by Pope Pius IX: the Immaculate Conception of Mary (1854) and papal infallibility (1870). In connection with the dogma of the Assumption of Mary, proclaimed by Pope Pius XII (1950), the objections mainly concerned the presentation of such a tradition in the form of a dogma.¹

To this Zacharias adds:

The Orthodox Church most emphatically does -not- believe in the Immaculate Conception.

This heretical doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church states that the Virgin Mary was born -without sin.- Think about that! How could a human being be born without the effect of original sin? How could she born not subject to bodily death as every human being is, being a product of a fallen world?

The Virgin Mary was not born this way, but she was born subject to the passions and to death just as every other human being. Our Lord Christ Jesus is the only person who has lived who was born without sin besides Adam and Eve, who were created before sin entered the world.

We DO believe however that Mary lived a holy life, not agreeing with the heretical doctrine of the Latin Church does not diminish this fact at all. » See in context

  1. YOU MUST BE THE MOST IGNORANT, REGARDING THE BELIEFS OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH.

    WE, AS ORTHODOX VERY MUCH BELIEVE IN THE DOGMA OF IMMACULATE CONCEPTION.

  2. I think the word “dogma” is what’s at issue here. Take a look at this.

    “Orthodox theologians reacted negatively to the new dogmas proclaimed by Pope Pius IX: the Immaculate Conception of Mary (1854) and papal infallibility (1870). In connection with the dogma of the Assumption of Mary, proclaimed by Pope Pius XII (1950), the objections mainly concerned the presentation of such a tradition in the form of a dogma.”
