Immaculate Conception

Definition: Immaculate Conception
The Christian doctrinal concept that the Virgin Mary was free from sin from the moment of her conception of Jesus Christ. Although this belief was promulgated as Roman Catholic dogma by Pope Pius IX in 1854, it has always been rejected as unbiblical by Protestants and, since 1854, the Orthodox Church has rejected it as well.
