If one could concievably have a virgin birth, and the child, through some miracle, lived a sin-free life, what would this mean?

These days women can technically conceive without intercourse. If a woman were to conceive and bear a child without having having sex, thereby resulting in a virgin birth, and the child were baptised, then raised in such a way that it did not sin, and led a holy life, what would this mean from a religious standpoint?

  • It isn't possible for us to not sin. At some point, the person is going to do something, even something small. Yes, it's possible to have a baby without sex and technically have a virgin birth. But we are human and we sin.

  • confusedWhat the.....?


    Imaculate conception....Are you Mary?....Are you on something?


    I am missing something? You can get pregnant through intercourse or get eggs put inside you there are other ways but to become pregnant just like that I don't think so...may God will choose you to be the next Mary. GL

  • does the angel show up as well? Just for the record, artificial ways of conceiving are considered sins in some religions. so unless it was brought about by God...some would already see it as a sin.

  • I really don't get the question.
    Jesus is coming back through the heavens not childbirth.

  • Whose idea of sin? Mine? Yours? The mother's? The child's?

  • Well, since Jesus was the only human fully able to lead a sin-free life . . . I don't see this scenario happening in the foreseeable future . . .
