We believe the Virgin Mary is sinless (Free from the sin of Adam) Sin entered the world first when Adam and eve disobeyed God and ate from the tree that was not allowed for them to eat. Gen 2:16-17, Gen 3:1-24, Romans 6:23. After eating the tree of knowledge of good and evil, Adam and eve lost their . As a consequence of this man’s nature became corrupted. This corruption doesn't apply to St. Mary Biblical evidence- Our church believe Saint Mary was chosen from the beginning to give birth to the word of God. God by his grace and wisdom preserved her from the sin of Adam. Isaiah spoke about her exemption, “Unless the Lord of hosts had left to us a very small remnant, We would have become like Sodom, We would have been made like Gomorrah.” Is 1:9. The remnant stated by the prophet is the Virgin Mary. The wise Solomon said about her sinlessness being led by the Holy Spirit, “You are all fair, my love, And there is no spot in you.” Song of Solomon 4:7. David praised her saying “The Most High God hath hallowed his Temple. God in the midst thereof shall not be moved." Ps 45:4-5. (Geez book of Psalms) Church fathers on her sinlessnes St. Ephraim the Syrian (Doctor) known as the lyre of the Holy Spirit said this "Thou, and Thy Mother are alone in this. You are wholly beautiful in every respect. There is in Thee, Lord, no stain, nor any spot in Thy Mother."
