I do not agree, but then this disagreement has been going on for millennia- we’re not fixing it here today.Nonsense. The Immaculate Conception simply means that the Blessed Virgin Mary’s soul was preserved from that taint of original sin which all others inherit from our first parents. It was really an anticipated baptism, a redemption of Mary's soul by prevention of sin's contamination and through the merits of Christ. The Eternal Son of God would not enter this world through a defiled doorway. The immunity from original sin was given to Mary by a singular exemption from a universal law through the same merits of Christ, by which other men are cleansed from sin by baptism. Mary needed the redeeming Savior to obtain this exemption, and to be delivered from the universal necessity and debt (debitum) of being subject to original sin. The person of Mary, in consequence of her origin from Adam, should have been subject to sin, but, being the new Eve who was to be the mother of the new Adam, she was, by the eternal counsel of God and by the merits Christ withdrawn from the general law of original sin. Her redemption was the very masterpiece of Christ’s redeeming wisdom. He is a greater redeemer who pays the debt that it may not be incurred than he who pays after it has fallen on the debtor.
Your assertion that Christ Jesus the Eternal Son of God took human nature to “empathize” with us is simply heretical, offensive, and blasphemous. Christ assumed human nature to redeem us.
May God bless and guide everyone to truth, which is only one!
