Immaculate misconceptions

The following statements are not true:
  • The Immaculate Conception is the conception of Jesus.
  • If Mary were conceived without sin, then she wouldn't need Jesus as her Savior.
  • Romans 3:23 -- "For all have sinned, and do need the glory of God." -- contradicts the dogma of the Immaculate Conception.
  • The Immaculate Conception makes Mary less human than the rest of us.
