Meta

No more splintered boards. We now have moderation at /christian/

>>>/christian/

New thread creation has been disabled

Welcome! This is a board for Christian discussion. Please read the rules linked above before posting.

Please keep all meta discussion in this thread.

>Even on a Christian board, only post on this website over tor or a trusted VPN

This board was begun as an alternative to /christian/ at a time when that board was poorly moderated. That is in the past. It does not matter anymore. Both camps have legitimate complaints about the other, but "the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone". It would be a good thing to end the dispute and not be splintered any longer.

Please, do not post on /christian/ at all

Since the migration to 8kun, there has been no moderation on /christian/. The last BO and crew publicly announced that they had no intent to return and did not want it to migrate, even saying they didn't support the very premise of a Christian anonymous imageboard. In the absence of any moderation there, this board is obviously preferable as the face of Christianity on 8kun. In this interest, we need to entirely boycott /christian/ so it drops in the list based on active ISP count.

If and when there is a new BO with fair moderation practices, we should move back to /christian/. Just for legacy's sake, it would be better to carry on into the future as one board on /christian/. Full disclosure, I requested ownership more than a month ago.

Spiritual Gifts

How am I to understand spiritual gifts?

Protestants only please.

I am thoroughly convinced of cessationism; the charismatic gifts have ceased. This is the dominant opinion throughout church history until the last 100 years with the introduction of the pentecostal and charismatic movements. The Westminster and London Baptist confession are both cessationist. Here's an article from spurgeon's Metropolitan Tabernacle for cessationism: https://www.metropolitantabernacle.org/Christian-Article/Cessationism-Proving-Charismatic-Gifts-have-Ceased-Sword-and-Trowel-Magazine

But, there are still said to be non-charismatic spiritual gifts that are continuing.

>Yet I wish that all men were even as I myself am. However, each man has his own gift from God, one in this manner, and another in that. (1 Cor 7:7)

Does this indicate that every believer has a spiritual gift, like most conclude? I hesitate to say so because Paul is talking about his chastity, being unmarried, and the gift of being unmarried is never listed as a spiritual gift. The whole chapter does not touch on spiritual gifts at all.

These are the alleged lists of spiritual gifts. They do not all match, which isn't necessarily a problem.

Romans 12:6-8

>prophecy

>service (ministry)

>teaching

>exhortation

>giving

>ruling (leading)

>showing mercy

1 Cor 12:4-11

>wisdom

>word of knowledge

>faith

>healing

>working of miracles

>prophecy

>discerning of spirits

>tongues

>interpretation of tongues

1 Cor 12:28 (categories?)

>miracles

>healings

>helps

>governments (administrations)

>diversities of tongues

Ephesians 4:11 is sometimes also called in, but it talks about offices of "apostle, prohpet, evangelist, pastor, teacher".

Today every kid at church camp or a college bible study is supposed to take a "spiritual gifts test" to find out what gift(s) he has so he can somehow put it into application, like a political compass test or a personality type quiz.

Do these not all fall under the category of charismatic gifts that should have ceased upon the building of the Church, or the closing of the canon? Is there a position that says no spiritual gifts are continuing today?

so, guys, I may be barred from joining a church that I've been attending for nearly two years because I told the pastor, in confidence, that I don't *like* interracial marriage. I made it clear that I don't claim any biblical proof for this, but I do consider it a strong opinion/value. sad thing is that these people are like family to me at this point.

Jesus spoke aramaic, therefore Peter was pope

I've encountered this argument before. Let's set the record straight.

A Roman Catholic might argue that the church was founded on Peter, not Christ or the confession of Christ, because Jesus says "upon this rock I will build my church". If we speculate that Jesus was speaking Aramaic, it would have been akin to "You are rock. Upon this rock I will build my church", because the words would have been identical. The argument says that this is tantamount to, "upon you I will build my church".

This is a bad argument because the holy scriptures are what were inspired, written in Greek. Speculation about what Jesus might have said in Aramaic is conjecture.

The person making this argument has to:

>establish with certainty that Jesus's conversational language with Peter was Aramaic

>account for the differences in terms when written in Greek

>Prove the doctrine from the Greek anyway, independent of the Aramaic argument.

If the doctrine of Jesus building His church upon Peter is Biblical, it would be present in the koine greek. That is a matter of reasoned debate, but this talk about aramaic is not.

Got in a fight with a fellow Catholic and I don't know what to think...

I was alone in a café in Fatima drinking my Fanta when I noticed a group of Catholic preppies (5 boys and 2 girls) sitting next to me drinking beer and bantering among themselves. One of them was wearing a medallion of Our Lady and was going on and on about how the communists are ruining the Church and how the "fags" are destroying the sanctity of marriage and so on. I thought to myself:

>"Nice, a fellow Traditional Catholic who isn't afraid to call out the reprobates".

I joined them after a while and we started talking about the moral degradation of the Church, the homosexual priests, the people being pro-abortion and female ordination and so on and, at some point, I turned to them and said:

>"Fags are a danger to the Church, that's true. But we need to remind ourselves that the first phenomenon that contributed to the desacralization of the Holy Matrimony was not fags getting married but the acceptance of divorce. In my opinion, and this is backed up by the catechism of the Catholic Church, a divorced man is as much as a degenerate as a homosexual".

Then there was a strange silence and I knew I done goofed. Dude got up and punched me in the nose:

>"Who are you calling a degenerate, you FRICKing queer? Get out of here!"

I threw my Fanta at him and we scuffled a bit until one of his friends grabbed me and brought me outside. Turns out 3 of them, 2 boys and 1 girl, were divorced. I swear none of them was older than 35.

Wisdom in Kosher dieting laws

Any animal that has a split hoof and chews the cud is deemed "clean"; the pig does have a split hoof but it does not chew the cud so it is "unclean".

I find this wise because any animal that is so primitive a part of its digestive process is regurgitating the food it eats and swallowing it again must be so unintelligent that it doesn't care about being locked in a cage for its entire life.

A pig has about as intelligent as a dog so when you eat pork you might as well be funding an industry that locks dogs in cages for their entire lives.

Torah Observant Christianity

I am relatively new to Christianity, being raised in a secular home through my childhood and having no faith into my adult life outside of vapid consumerism. I have recently come across Torah-Observant Christianity and it seems to resonate very much with me; I feel called by it.

>inb4 Judaism & /pol/tier screeching

This is nothing like Judaism.

To clarify, I follow the Law to the best of my ability out of love and obedience to the Most High. I do not believe that any works nor observance of the teachings are done as a requirement of salvation, but rather faith alone in the Grace of our Savior Yeshua the Messiah is the only way to be saved. Also, I have nor want nothing to do with the paganism that the star of David/Remphan represents (gentile usurpers).

Can we get a discussion going on this? What are your thoughts on the Law? My eyes and ears are receptive to what you have to say, and I would love to hear from my Christian brothers and sisters of all backgrounds. Thank you, and God be with you always.

Martin Luther and Capitalism

If I recall correctly Martin Luther was accused of facilitating a type of Christianity that will allow everyone to be as greedy as possible and completely disregard their fellow human being in their quest to gain as much wealth as possible. During Luther's time what we now know as capitalism was on the rise when the catholic church's power was waning and we saw less serfs serving landlords and more mercantilism and mobility.

Did Luther call out capitalism for the evil that it is? Not coveting is one of the 10 commandments and Paul says in Colossians 3:5 that greed is idolatry.

I'm asking you all because whenever I search "Martin Luther and Capitalism" I just get a bunch of articles on Martin Luther King Jr. allegedly being a communist.

Have you accepted the work of Almighty God in the last days?

Brothers and Sisters, it is a universally-accepted truth in the religious world that many of the signs of the end times have been achieved, and we are all eagerly awaiting for the coming of the Lord. Yet for all the time we've spent looking up at the clouds waiting for Christ to return in the open, we've seen nary a trace of the Lord Jesus, all the while the Churches on Earth fall into desolation. Every day, pastors walk about preaching human opinions and imaginations like the Trinity, and the religious world looks more and more like the religious Babylon of Revelation.

One day, Sister Wei fellowshipped with me that the Lord had already come, and that He is Almighty God, who has come in the flesh to carry out the work of judging, chastising, and purifying man. Incredulous, I asked "how could it be that the Lord has come? Isn't the Lord going to return in the sky for everyone to see? (Matthew 24:30)"

The manner of the Lord's return

Sister Jia fellowshipped, "while it is true that there will be a visible coming, the Bible also prophesies a hidden coming. Here, let us read some verses:"

'''For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.''' (Luke 17:24-25)

Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. (Revelation 16:15)

The Bible says that when the Lord comes, we will hear the Gospel of the Lord's return preached to us by others. "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him."(Matthew 25:4) At that time, we must be like the wise virgins in the passage, ready to welcome the Lord's coming, or else he will tell us "Verily I say unto you, I know you not." (Matthew 25:12) Those who reject the second coming of the Lord will not partake in the salvation that He brings with Himself for His second coming. (Hebrews 9:28)

The necessity of the Lord's return

Sister Jia continued her fellowshipping by broaching the subject of salvation. "The religious world teaches that we are saved by faith alone, but does the conform to the message of God's words, or simply to man's opinions and imagination? I think you will see that it's actually the latter."

Sister Jia cited the verses Hebrews 10:26: "For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins" and 1 Peter 1:16: "'Be holy, for I am holy."

"The reason why this is important," Sister Jia continued, "is because being saved and achieving full salvation are not the same thing. The work of Lord Jesus ended the Age of Law and brought the Age of Grace, allowing people to obtain atonement for their sins by believing in the Gospel. But even after acquiring atonement, our sinful, Satanic disposition remains. That's why the Lord has returned as Almighty God to begin the Age of Kingdom, expressing words of judgment that cleanse those who obey Him of their Satanic disposition, allowing them to enter the kingdom of Heaven through His salvation of the last days."

The importance of the Lord's name

"But why then," I asked, "is the Lord's name no longer Jesus, but rather Almighty God?"

"You see," Sister Jia fellowshipped, "the Lord's name has a special significance. In the Age of Law, it was Jehovah. In the Age of Grace, it was Jesus. In each of these ages, the Lord's name represented the Lord's work in that age. But today, the Lord's name is Almighty God, which encompasses the entirety of His disposition, His majesty, and His sovereignty."

"This truth," Sister Jia continued, "is reflected in the Bible itself. In Revelation 2:17, the Lord says He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it. That is, in the last days, He will have a new name. And indeed we see that in the Book of Revelation, the visions of the future have the name of God as Almighty God. (Revelation 1:8, 11:17)"

So Brothers and Sisters, we must avoid following false Christs, and we must avoid spurning the Lord's work of the last days just because we are afraid of Him being a false Christ. We must not be like those who avoid food for fear of choking. Let us all investigate and obey the work of Almighty God in the last days!

Your Ideal Heaven

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

Certainly Heaven is beyond human conception and imagination… but supposing it weren't, what do you hope Heaven is like? Consider for a moment what you actually want an eternity of humble adoration and praise of God to be, and post it here.

My hope for Heaven is that I can be a spectator of all time. It is truly my great desire to observe every moment of Creation from start to finish, from the microscopic to macroscopic. I want to see every chronological event laid out before me and comprehend it. To understand every natural law, causality, mathematical principle, and why it was designed that way.

Further, and more importantly, I want to witness the full life of every person ever conceived. I desperately want to see and experience vicariously every life experience to come to understand and love every human being, ever. I want to see into their circumstances and see into their minds and motivations and learn how every person's actions influenced every other person. I want to watch the whole life of my loved ones so I can love them more and also my enemies so I can forgive them better. I want to watch my own life from a divine perspective so that I can evaluate myself and, in a sense, relive my life with the wisdom to recognize my mistakes. I want to be present at the moment of every person's death so that I can welcome them into the beatific vision and tell them "don't be afraid, it's all right now," and let them know that they were not alone…

… I know two people who died without another living soul nearby. They died trying to reach out for help and I thought about how sad and terrifying it must have been. I wished with all my heart that I could comfort them in their dying moments. God isn't bounded by time and I hope He grants my request.

I also regret that I cannot explore the depth of human creativity in my life time. If I dedicated every moment of my life to reading every story, watching every movie, and listening to every song written by man, I wouldn't touch a fraction of a measly tenth of a percent of all art. So I hope that I can indulge in every created work in my eternity, and in doing so, come to appreciate the infinitely more complex story God has been weaving.

Finally, I hope that, once every facet of mortal creation has been thoroughly explored, I can simply enjoy communion with all of my brothers and sisters and praise God for the rest of eternity, tending to a garden, maybe, with my loved ones (even my old pets), punctuated by extravagant banquets where we glorify each other, and God directly and by derivative.

Documentaries/videos to convince somebody of the faith in Russian

Hey Russiabros,

I am looking for good documentaries, apologetic videos to bring somebody who doesn't believe in God to the faith. I have a long-distance gf in Russia, and she's a good and kind person, but in a toxic atheist environment. All her friends are leftists, and she has a fedora-tier aversion towards even engaging with Christianity, and refuses to read even one book of the Bible. So much so that our reationship is about to fail, which would not only be a loss for our future, but for hers as well because she's 24, and if she doesn't start thinking seriously about family and God now, maybe she never will.

Catholicism and Homosexuality

Let's have an earnest discussion on this topic, because up until now it was shut down on /christian/ every single time by the Catholic mods. How prevalent is homosexuality among the Catholic clergy, and if homosexuality and pedophilia are as common as most sources claim (+50%), then how can the Catholic church even be recognized as a valid Christian organisation? I know Catholics will claim that this is all somehow fabricated and that only <0.1% of priests are deviants, etc. pp., but here are my sources, and I can find many more:

>“You’re so attractive,” he said. “You’re in great shape and you have beautiful clothes. Come on, you must know that everyone is staring at you all the time. You know full well that every guy here including the priests and even the bishop would f*ck you if they had the chance.”

https://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/gay-catholic-inside-the-seminary-closet/

>But gay men probably make up at least 30 to 40 percent of the American Catholic clergy, according to dozens of estimates from gay priests themselves and researchers. Some priests say the number is closer to 75 percent. One priest in Wisconsin said he assumed every priest was gay unless he knows for a fact he is not. A priest in Florida put it this way: “A third are gay, a third are straight and a third don’t know what the hell they are.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/17/us/it-is-not-a-closet-it-is-a-cage-gay-catholic-priests-speak-out.html

>In September 2018 a report was leaked that reported that 3,677 children in Germany, mostly boys under age 13, were sexually abused by Catholic clergy members over the past seven decades". About 1,670 church workers, or 4.4% of the clergy, had been involved in the abuse which is "shocking and probably just the tip of the iceberg" according to Germany's Federal Justice Minister Katarina Barley[68]

THE TRINITIY IS FALSE

John 14:28

All four Gospels record Jesus as saying, “Blessed are the peace-makers; they will be called sons of God.”

The word ‘son’ cannot be accepted literally because in the Bible, God apparently addresses many f his chosen servants as ‘son’ and ‘sons.’ The Hebrews believed God is One, and had neither wife nor children in any literal sense. Therefore, it is obvious the expression ‘son of God’ merely meant ‘Servant of God’; one who, because of faithful service, was close and dear to God as a son is to his father.

Christians who came from a Greek or Roman background, later misused this term. In their heritage, ‘son of God’ signified an incarnation of a god or someone born of a physical union between male and female gods. This can be seen in Acts 14: 11-13, where we read that when Paul and Barnabas preached in a city of Turkey, pagans claimed they were gods incarnate. They called Barnabas the Roman god Zeus, and Paul the Roman god Hermes.

Furthermore, the New Testament Greek word translated as ‘son’ are ‘pias’ and ‘paida’ which mean ‘servant,’ or ‘son in the sense of servant.’ These are translated to ‘son’ in reference to Jesus and ‘servant’ in reference to all others in some translations of the Bible. So, consistent with other verses, Jesus was merely saying that he is God’s servant.

Additional problems with Trinity

To a christian, God had to take human form to understand temptation and human suffering, but the concept is not based on any clear words of Jesus. In contrast, God does not need to be tempted and suffer in order to be able to understand and forgive man’s sins, for He is the all knowing Creator of man. This is expressed in the verse:

‘And the Lord said: ‘I have surely seen the affliction of My people that are in Egypt, and I have heard their cry because of their taskmasters; for I know their pains.’ (Exodus 3:7)

God forgave sin before Jesus’ appearance, and He continues to forgive without any assistance. When a believer sins, he may come before God in sincere repentance to receive forgiveness. Indeed, the offer to humble oneself before God and be saved is made to all humankind.

‘And there is no God else beside Me; a just God and a Savior; there is none beside Me. Look to Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else.’ (Isaiah 45:21-22, Jonah 3:5-10)

Lol you actually believe in this stuff?

>Vespasian as yet lacked prestige and a certain divinity, so to speak, since he was an unexpected and still new-made emperor; but these also were given him.

>A man of the people who was blind, and another who was lame, came to him together as he sat on the tribunal, begging for the help for their disorders which Serapis had promised in a dream; for the god declared that Vespasian would restore the eyes, if he would spit upon them, and give strength to the leg, if he would deign to touch it with his heel.

>Though he had hardly any faith that this could possibly succeed, and therefore shrank even from making the attempt, he was at last prevailed upon by his friends and tried both things in public before a large crowd; and with success. At this same time, by the direction of certain soothsayers, some vases of antique workmanship were dug up in a consecrated spot at Tegea in Arcadia and on them was an image very like Vespasian.

>Suetonius (CE 121)

>In the course of the months which Vespasian spent at Alexandria, waiting for the regular season of summer winds when the sea could be relied upon, many miracles occurred. These seemed to be indications that Vespasian enjoyed heaven’s blessing and that the gods showed a certain leaning towards him.

>Among the lower classes at Alexandria was a blind man whom everybody knew as such. One day this fellow threw himself at Vespasian’s feet, imploring him with groans to heal his blindness. He had been told to make this request by Serapis, the favourite god of a nation much addicted to strange beliefs. He asked that it might please the emperor to anoint his cheeks and eyeballs with the water of his mouth. A second petitioner, who suffered from a withered hand, pleaded his case too, also on the advice of Serapis: would Caesar tread upon him with the imperial foot?

>At first Vespasian laughed at them and refused. When the two insisted, he hesitated. At one moment he was alarmed by the thought that he would be accused of vanity if he failed. At the next, the urgent appeals of the two victims and the flatteries of his entourage made him sanguine of success.

>Finally he asked the doctors for an opinion whether blindness and atrophy of this sort were curable by human means. The doctors were eloquent on the various possibilities. The blind man’s vision was not completely destroyed, and if certain impediments were removed his sight would return. The other victim’s limb had been dislocated, but could be put right by correct treatment. Perhaps this was the will of the gods, they added; perhaps the emperor had been chosen to perform a miracle. Anyhow, if a cure were effected, the credit would go to the ruler; if it failed, the poor wretches would have to bear the ridicule.

>So Vespasian felt that his destiny gave him the key to every door and that nothing now defied belief. With a smiling expression and surrounded by an expectant crowd of bystanders, he did what was asked. Instantly the cripple recovered the use of his hand and the light of day dawned again upon his blind companion. Both these incidents are still vouched for by eye-witnesses, though there is now nothing to be gained by lying.

>Tacitus (CE 116)

Yep your religion is fake. "Miracles" like these were pretty common back then, spittle was believed by many ancients to have healing powers and Jesus clearly thought the same when he used the technique. Your Lord was nothing but a magician, get over it.

Was the flood exaggerated?

In the bible it says that only Noah and his family survived the great flood. Is it possible that this is only hyperbole and the great flood was exaggerated?

I ask because in Numbers 13:32-33 the bible describes Israelite spies finding the descendants of the Nephilim.

My first thought was it was just Israelite spies were exaggerating to avoid conflict, however, this is unlikely as the bible itself says:

"he descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim".

How could there be decedents of the Nelphilim on the earth in the time of Moses if no one but Noah and his family survived the flood?

Your very job as a glowie speaks to this as, if the world were not fallen, then you would not be employed

>the Bible provides us a narrative that perfectly explains the current condition of the world

>in the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth, and He created Man in His own image (a being with free will and dominion)

>He gave unto Man the Earth, and tested him with just one rule: do not eat of the fruit of knowledge of good and evil

>tempted by Satan, Man ate the fruit and committed the first Sin, which means to break the design and desires of God

>God removed Man from Paradise and left him to be his own desires ; i.e. left him as sovereign over a fallen world

>the cost of eating of the fruit, however, is death. God will some day come back to pay that debt unto Man

>however, God is righteousness and loves Man, and so He set out on a plan to ransom Man and return Him to Paradise

>God spoke to Man through His Prophets for millenia, setting apart a peoples, the Israelites, to pave the way for salvation unto the world

>God gave us glimpses of this plan throughout many an ordeal, such as what was celebrated on Passover: the "passing over" of God's wrath from those Egyptians who sanctified their homes through the blood of a Lamb and ate of its flesh

>He told us a Christ - a "Messiah", meaning an anointed one; meaning a King will come unto the Earth and bring salvation to God's people

>when the world was finally at the desired place, God Himself came unto the world as the man, Jesus of Nazareth aka Jesus son of Joseph aka Jesus Christ aka Jesus the King

>He came unto the world to preach to Man directly, eye to eye, and to show him the Way to repentence: to trust in Him and Him alone, so that His righteousness lived as Man may account for the unrighteousness of Man living according to his own desires

>to fulfill this, He gave Himself up to die on a cross in order to pay for the sins of the world. Thus, if you put your trust and worship unto Christ Jesus, then He has paid for your transgressions and you have adopted His righteousness in coming Judgment

>however, the Lord Christ, in order to show us that He is greater than Death, even death on a cross, resurrected after three days

>He sent out missionaries to preach the good news of His plan for attunement for Mankind - the Gospel

>at the end of the age, Lord Jesus will return to judge the world for their transgressions, and all of those who choose to reject Him in favor of their own desires, as the first Man did with the fruit, will be punished with Death in Hell, a place of weeping and gnashing of teeth. Those who chose to accept God's sacrifice will be grafted back unto His plan and return to Paradise, where He will dwell with God as His people

Should We Rename Planets To Be After Angels/Prophets/ And Saints Instead Of Pagan Deities?

In Exodus 23:13 it said “Pay attention to that I have said to you, and make no mention of the names of other gods, nor let it be herd from your lips.” when we named planets after pagan deities we are force to mention their names and this becomes unavoidable for Christians who want to be devout and I see this as being unnecessary as before the west pretty much globalized the world, different countries and cultures had named the planets differently from each other and I don’t see why as a Christian dominated society that we couldn’t do the same especially since we are not talking about historical records, relics, or another person’s religion or spiritual beliefs

Most Foundational Belief

What is your most foundational Christian belief? I think I might have to say biblical inerrancy, but prior to that, I believe God is Logos and Logos is is revealed fully through Jesus Christ and to an extent through nature and there is a sense in which the Bible is Logos in book form. So I almost rest easy (not easy enough) thinking my biblical inerrancy comes from my Christology. I would think many Protestants would believe in Sola Scriptura on a very foundational level, but I only believe in Sola Scriptura to the extent that I don’t ~know~ if any source of doctrine, rule of faith and practice, etc other than the Bible is God breathed. That is to say, I feel like I’m straddling the line between Catholic and Protestant or even Baptist if we consider that distinct from Protestant. I am not trained in rigorous thinking and would appreciate seeing others’ answer to the first question to help refine my own beliefs. Secondarily, I hope it may even shed light on how united we are.

Catholicism and Papal Primacy Question

So, please forgive me if this is a stupid question, it's been a very long time since I looked at anything about Catholicism and I'm only starting to get back into religion myself.

Anyway, if Pope Francis decided to blatantly say that Jesus was homosexual, would that have to be counted as fact by the Church? I think I remember that what the pope says has equal standing to Scripture, and since the Bible never explicitly states Jesus to not be homosexual(I think), wouldn't that statement be considered fact? If this specific example can be refuted through Scripture, forgive me, but the principle of the question remains the same.

Is a Papal Decree still equal to Scripture even if it is utterly ridiculous?

Being a kissless virgin is not weird.

Some people think its weird that I am still a virgin at 20. Sometimes people pick fun at me for it. But right now I am waiting for God to send me a woman. I do not want to be a fornicator. But I am content if God is leading me down another path, a more holy path. Marriage between a man and a woman is a beautiful and very holy thing. But in these last days it is better to be celibate. Marriage is here for those who cannot control their passions. But we know that the Word of God teaches us all things, including how to control our weak emotions that stem from our body, not our mind. We know that reason is above fleshly things and our appetites. So brothers, sisters, if you must marry then do so! And have an abundance of children like St. Peter! :) But to others who choose the path that Christ lead, and the path St. Paul followed, many blessings to you! :)

Advice?

So I recently started doing discipleship at my church (I’m still a bit new in my walk), and my leader says that I’m too fixated on information than my actual walk. I will account for the fact that my prayer life is a bit lacking, but nonetheless this knowledge is important no? I’m just fascinated by the biblical basis for the Khazarian Jews (not real Jews), Illuminati, the beast system, E.Ts (fallen angels), nephilim, and the rapture. These aren’t really topics that most churches cover b/c they’re too controversial, but I’m just too curious. It gives me better insight on the will of Jesus so I can understand the word to my full capacity.

Anyway, he brought up that this information is distracting me from my walk, but it’s not like I’m obsessed with it. I just enjoy discussing it b/c it’s a bit taboo. I’m aware life has a deeper meaning than knowledge and that most of that information is irrelevant to me, but it’s relevant to God, so I feel like it’s something I should know if I should continue to do his work. How could I call myself a Christian if I couldn’t explain these things?

>The case the high court is hearing Wednesday involves a 40-foot-tall, concrete cross on a large, grassy highway median in Maryland, just outside Washington. The nearly 100-year-old cross was built as a memorial to area residents who died in World War I.

>The District of Columbia-based American Humanist Association say the cross should be moved to private property or modified into a nonreligious monument such as a slab or obelisk. The group lost the first round in court, but in 2017 an appeals court ruled the cross unconstitutional.

>Defending the cross at the high court are The American Legion, which raised money for the cross and completed it in 1925, and Maryland officials, who took over maintenance of the cross nearly 60 years ago to preserve it and address traffic safety concerns. Maryland officials argue that the cross doesn’t violate the Constitution because it has a secular purpose and meaning.

The obvious answer is that the cross represents Christianity, but this is no issue with the establishment clause of the First Amendment

>Bishops have issued pastoral guidance in response to the recent introduction to mixed-sex civil partnerships, which says: “For Christians, marriage – that is, the lifelong union between a man and a woman, contracted with the making of vows – remains the proper context for sexual activity.”

>The church “seeks to uphold that standard” in its approach to civil partnerships, and “to affirm the value of committed, sexually abstinent friendships” within such partnerships.

>It adds: “Sexual relationships outside heterosexual marriage are regarded as falling short of God’s purpose for human beings.”

>The Civil Partnership Act came into force in December 2005, allowing same-sex couples to acquire a legal status and rights in relation to property, inheritance and tax entitlement. In 2013, same sex marriage was legalised.

>The C of E does not permit same-sex marriage. It allows clergy to be in same-sex civil partnerships as long as they are sexually abstinent.

Why is this bulls— in the Bible? Christians don't follow it. It goes against natural law. Everyone always finds some excuse to not follow it and those who do follow it are always literal soycucks or children. It's just bad advice and every adult has enough life experience to know this. It also directly contradicts other books of the Bible like the OT law and Sirach so why is it even there in the same chapter Jesus says to follow the OT?

If she didn't convert I'd be ok with that but we can't marry unless I convert. What should I do? Ending this is not an option as I love her deeply and couldn't live without her. I admit that we have had sex but we've both agreed that sex should be kept inside of marriage so we haven't been having sex lately.

Matthew 25

I just stumbled upon a deeply disturbing passage which I cannot come to terms with as it appears to have been preserved. I am not satisfied with the slightest with the shallow and hypocritical excuses I have so far heard for it's justification. I hope to God that it's merely a mistranslation inserted by jews, because I cannot accept as my lord one who would ever advocate for usury under any conditions. If I should be dammed to hell for rejecting usury, then I will proudly accept my fate with a clean conscience.

According to Matthew 25:27, Christ himself allegedly said:

>Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

I understand the parable just fine- 'contribute what you can'. That's not the part that troubles me. What troubles me is that I'm expected to believe that Christ himself supposedly justified usury. I can't accept this. It's exactly the same as asking me to believe Christ would say "beg, borrow, steal, cheat, lie; do whatever it takes to make a profit for your master". I have faith that Christ is better then this.

So someone, please help me understand just what the unholy f— happened to this passage. I cannot and will not accept this as it has been preserved. Someone please show me that this was a translation error or another jewish attempt at subversion.

>From the Christian confession that there can be only one path to salvation, however, it does not in any way follow that the Jews are excluded from God’s salvation because they do not believe in Jesus Christ as the Messiah of Israel and the Son of God.

>That the Jews are participants in God’s salvation is theologically unquestionable, but how that can be possible without confessing Christ explicitly, is and remains an unfathomable divine mystery.

Buddhism and Christianity?

What are your thoughts on this faith? It came into existence in India/Nepal about 500 years before Christ based on the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama (the Buddha).

As I understand it, Buddhism teaches that a fundamental part of reality is change (impermanence). But people become attached to things because of our ego, our sense of self or our personality, and we make our attachments a part of who we are. Because of change, we are bound to experience loss and if we don't learn how to overcome it then we will experience suffering. Thus attachment is the root of all suffering in Buddhism. By following the eightfold path, we learn that our egos are an illusion, and we can finally begin to let go, and upon letting go of our attachments there is complete freedom as there is no longer any worry or desire because we are slaves to nothing anymore, we are Buddhas. Of course for most people it takes many lifetimes for our karma to be perfected as we are trapped in a cycle of death and birth (samsara), so we continue to move to higher or lower levels of consciousness (rebirth) until there is full enlightenment and Nirvana where we fully become one with reality (or you could become a Bodhisattva and delay Nirvana in order to help lower level beings achieve Buddhahood). That is my understanding of the religion.

Is there anything valuable we as Christians can take from this? Obviously it cannot be fully reconciled with the Christian faith but I can't help but to notice a lot of similarities with Christian spirituality.

Gaining real faith

I’ve realized some things over the past few months. I finally realized that ultimately the Truth really is unknowable and I’ll have to take a leap of faith to actually get somewhere. I’ve exhausted all my outlets of gaining possible wisdom from Occultism to Philosophy and now I’m just left with two possible options: pure Agnostic uncertainty about everything or Christianity. I feel to actually pursue Christianity though I need to have some sort of breakthrough to actually achieve faith in God.

I was praying to God on a more or less continual basis and I was still left wondering, even with signs I thought could be from God I was still uncertain about everything. I was still the same person, the same person enslaved to his own mental fancies and desires of the flesh, still the person unmotivated to actually commit myself to anything, the person still left without real passion, and I continue to be so.

So do I just continue to pray until I feel the power of the Holy Ghost actually work within me or do I just choose another course of action?

Christian Incels

God made me both extremely ugly and profoundly stupid. Because of this, I'm an incel. But I'm not bitter about it. I'm actually quite content with it and I have nothing against women. I'm sexually attracted to women but, assuming there is anyone out there who might find me attractive, I don't even think I would want to be romantically involved because I can't really relate to anyone or express my emotions and the idea of physical closeness makes me cringe. Also I know I would never be able to fulfill all of my hypothetical partner's needs or live up to their standards. There is truly nobody for me. I think this is a gift though. Celibacy is a noble path that God laid out for many. Our Lord himself was a virgin because he came to save us, not reproduce with us. St. Paul was also an asexual for the Kingdom of God. I think God making me ugly and stupid and repulsed by emotions is a gift and I think being an incel is a gift. It allows me to focus on God more instead of a romantic partner. If you're an incel, embrace it. God has gifted you! Perhaps one day, if I feel I am being called to it, I'll become a monk. But I don't know yet. I don't know where God is leading me.

Unique Problem

I've been really embarrassed to explain my situation for a long time but here it goes. So I have lapsed from the faith. I'm not going to make any excuses for myself because I still believe I just haven't been practicing. It was 5 years ago when I decided to convert to Catholicism after having been an Independent Baptist for a while. But here's the thing… I think the priest screwed up my conversion. On the day I was supposed to be received into the Church, take communion and all that, well the priest invited me up for communion and I took it but he never initiated the rite of reception. The priest just gave me communion and said I was Catholic now. (I wasn't confirmed immediately then, I was put into a confirmation class and the priest told me after a certain period of time I'd be confirmed but I ended up lapsing during this time and was never confirmed). So I want to go back to the faith now but… I don't even know if I was really Catholic in the first place. For the first year after my "reception" I actually wasn't even aware of it and continued to attend Mass and receive communion and go to confession. But I eventually found out about how I should have been received formally into the Catholic Church… So was I never really Catholic after all? I want to come back to the faith but I'm embarrassed to explain my situation to a priest and I just want some feedback from you guys. Thank you and may God bless you.

Protestants under attack from Catholics in Mexico

ROME - Recently - and, many observers would say, belatedly - the Catholic Church has awoken to the reality of anti-Christian persecution around the world. The emblematic case is the Nineveh Plains in northern Iraq, where Catholic organizations such as the Knights of Columbus and Aid to the Church in Need have meant the difference between life and death for a resilient Christian minority struggling to rebuild post-ISIS.

Pope Francis routinely talks about anti-Christian persecution as a fact of life in the early 21st century, invoking an “ecumenism of blood” to express the reality that oppressors don’t generally make distinctions among the types of Christianity practiced by their victims.

This activism is warranted by the threats faced by tens of millions of Christians around the world - to invoke the language of the Catholic Mass, it is “right and just.” For a Catholic witness to be effective, however, it must be consistent and apply across the board, lest it seem mere confessional self-interest.

And that, by a short route, brings us to the small town of Cuamontax Huazalingo, Mexico, population around 700 souls, located in Hidalgo State in the central part of the country just north of Mexico City.

Last Sunday, four Protestants were kicked out of town by village leaders in Cuamontax Huazalingo, apparently in retaliation for their refusal to sign an agreement barring Protestants from entering the community and also for a press conference held by their lawyer accusing the Mexican government of failing to defend religious freedom.

A home belonging to Gilberto Badillo, his adult son Uriel Badillo and their wives, all Missionary Baptists, was attacked on Sunday while they were away, with all their belongings carted off and the windows smashed in order to make the home uninhabitable. In consequence, the Badillos left town and sought refuge in a nearby city.

According to religious freedom watchdog groups, there was ample warning the family was in danger but local and regional government officials refused to intervene, instead giving interviews to media blaming the family for their refusal to participate in, and give financial support to, Catholic activities.

Christian Solidarity Worldwide reports that beginning in 2018, community leaders cut the electricity, running water and sewage services to the handful of Protestant inhabitants, demanding that they sign an agreement to financially support all village activities, including Catholic festivals, and also pledging that no Protestant missionaries would enter.

Byzantine Catholic Patriarchate excommunicates Francis

Francis Bergoglio, a Jesuit, has been admonished, warned several times to distance himself from heresies. However, he obstinately rejects any repentance. He continues to cause extreme offense not only to the believers of the Roman Catholic Church but also to all Christians and unbelievers. By abusing the supreme church authority through heresies, he intensely promotes the self-destruction of the Church, in matters of both faith and morals.

It concerns the following heresies: Francis Bergoglio

1) denied the universally valid moral norms in the exhortation Amoris Laetitia.

2) did not distance himself from heresies of syncretism with paganism which place the redemptive death of Christ on the same level as the sacrifice to pagan gods, de facto demons. He thus destroys true mission.

3) promotes a so-called dynamic approach to the deposit of faith, whereby he makes heresies equal with the apostles’ doctrine.

4) neither identified nor condemned Vatican II heresies promoting syncretism with paganism and declaring Allah to be the same God as Yahweh (LG 16, Nostra Aetate declaration).

5) participates in crimes against humanity of the New World Order (NWO).

6) works towards dechristianization of Europe by intensively promoting Islamization.

7) is silent on the stealing of children by the juvenile justice system.

8. approves and promotes homosexualism and other gender deviations, which is contrary to the teaching of the Scriptures and Tradition.

For these heresies, Francis Bergoglio excluded himself from the Catholic Church. Therefore, the Byzantine Catholic Patriarchate, by authority of the apostolic and prophetic office, in the name of the Triune God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, declares Francis Bergoglio to be excommunicated from the Catholic Church. Unless the person concerned shows repentance at least in the hour of death, he will be eternally condemned.

Every Catholic who is in unity with him in heresy is likewise excommunicated from the Catholic Church.

Therefore, let the priests and bishops no longer mention the name of this excommunicated apostate Francis in the Divine Liturgy.

Based.

If Jesus is Christ, then Mary is christokos, mother of Christ.

Each of these statements is true and the use of any one does not necessarily mean rejection of one of the others.

They are all extrabiblical terms, meaning that they aren't found in scripture. They were all conceived of by theologians after Christ ascended.

The least ambiguous way to refer to her is "Mary, mother of Jesus".

Hong Xiquan/Taiping Heavenly Kingdom

Thoughts on the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom and Hong Xiquan?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Xiuquan

>Hong Xiuquan (洪秀全), born "Hong Huoxiu", was the third and youngest son of a poor[how?] Hakka family.[2][3] Some sources claim his family was "well to do".[4] He was born in Fuyuan Springs, Hua county (now part of Huadu District, Guangzhou), Guangdong to Hong Jingyang, a farmer and elected headman, and Madam Wang.[5][6][7] He and his family moved to Guanlubu Village shortly after his birth.[8] Upon marrying his wife Lai Xiying, Hong received the courtesy name "Renkun."[9]

>Hong showed an interest in scholarship at an early age, so his family made financial sacrifices to provide a formal education for him, in the hope that he could one day complete all of the civil service examinations.[2] Hong began studying at a primary school in his village at the age of five.[10] He was able to recite the Four Books after five or six years. He then took the local xiucai preliminary civil service examinations and placed first.[11] A few years later, he traveled to the nearby city of Guangzhou to take the imperial examinations.[12] He was unsuccessful and, his parents being unable to afford to continue his education, he was forced to return to agricultural work.[13] The next year, he accompanied a wealthy schoolmate elsewhere for a year of study and became a village schoolteacher upon his return.[14]

>In 1836, at the age of 22, Hong returned to Guangzhou to retake the imperial examinations.[15] While in Guangzhou, Hong heard Edwin Stevens, a foreign missionary, and his interpreter preaching about Christianity.[16] From them, Hong received a set of pamphlets entitled "Good Words for Exhorting the Age", which were written by Liang Fa, Stevens's assistant, and contained excerpts from the Bible along with homilies and other material prepared by Liang.[17] Supposedly, Hong only briefly looked over these pamphlets and did not pay much attention to them at the time.[2] Unsurprisingly, he again failed the imperial examinations, which had a pass rate of less than one percent.[18]

>In 1837, Hong attempted and failed the imperial examinations for a third time, leading to a nervous breakdown.[19] He was delirious for days and his family feared for his life.[20] While convalescing, Hong dreamt that he visited Heaven and discovered that he possessed a celestial family distinct from his earthly family, which included a heavenly father, mother, elder brother, sister-in-law, wife, and son.[21] His heavenly father, wearing a black dragon robe and high-brimmed hat with a long golden beard, lamented that men were worshiping demons rather than him and presented Hong with a sword and golden seal with which to slay the demons infesting Heaven.[22] Hong dreamt that he did so with the help of his celestial older-brother and a heavenly army.[23] The father figure later informed Hong that his given name violated taboos and must be changed, suggesting as one option the "Hong Xiuquan" moniker ultimately adopted by Hong.[24] In later embellishments, Hong would declare that he also saw Confucius being punished by Hong's celestial father for leading the people astray.[25] His acquaintances would later claim that after awakening from his dreams Hong became more careful, friendly, and open, while his pace became imposing and firm and his height and size increased.[26] Hong stopped studying for the imperial examinations and sought work as a teacher. For the next several years Hong taught at several schools around the area of his hometown.

>In 1843, Hong failed the imperial examinations for the fourth and final time.[27] It was only then, prompted by a visit by his cousin, that Hong took time to carefully examine the Christian pamphlets he had received.[28] After reading these pamphlets, Hong came to believe that they had given him the key to interpreting his visions: his celestial father was God the Father (whom he identified with Shangdi from Chinese tradition), the elder brother that he had seen was Jesus Christ, and he had been directed to rid the world of demon worship.[29][30] This interpretation led him to conclude that he was the literal son of God and younger brother to Jesus.[31] In contrast to some of the later leaders of his movement, Hong appears to have genuinely believed in his ascent to Heaven and divine mission.[32] After coming to this conclusion Hong began destroying idols and enthusiastically preaching his interpretation of Christianity.[2] As a symbolic gesture to purge China of Confucianism, he and the cousin asked for two giant swords, three chi (about 1 metre) long and nine jin (about 4.5 kg), called the "demon-slaying swords" (斬妖劍), to be forged.[33]

God Does Not Love Us

>God creates everything

>God knows everything

>God loves us

The three of those statements cannot exist at the same time. The issue here is that if God knows everything and creates everyone, he already knows which of his creations will go to heaven or to hell before he even creates them (predestination). Now if God creates a person who he already knows will spend an eternity in hell, he obviously does not love that person. Yet he mass produces people who are literally born to die and go to hell. Why would a loving God do this? There are two options. Either God does not love us or he does not know everything. The only way an all powerful God can justify the creation of hellbound people is if he himself does not know what choices that person will make in their lifetime that lead them towards heaven or hell. If that is true however he is no longer all powerful.

So. Is God all powerful, or does he love us? Or can anyone here begin to rationalize an argument that he can accomplish both? Prove me wrong.

the problem of rampant unbelief in Christianity

Do you ever get the feeling that most Christians don't really believe in God and the bible. That they're just in it for the good community and morals? I'm not just talking about obvious cases like those churches we see with the rainbow flags - instead it seems to be that many churches, both liberal and conservative, are filled with congregation and even pastoral staff that don't actually believe in God.

Theology that would be no different without God

I'm not basing this on the way anyone acts, I understand that all fall short. It's more the theology - a lot of the pop theology going around at churches actually seems to present a view that nullifies God.

For example:

The popular saying:

>God answers prays yes, no or wait

How is that different from if you were praying and there was no God. If God didn't exit, you would still get what you prayed for sometimes, not get it other time, and have to wait other times. This belief is no different from the way the world would be if God doesn't exist.

In a world where God exists, if a prayer isn't answered, it should mean that something went wrong and prayers should be answered yes more often than not. - unanswered prayers should be an aberration that causes concern.

Another was from my cousin who is a junior Charismatic pastor he said something along the lines of:

>prayer doesn't change things; it changes me

And I just thought, that seems no different from how prayer would work in a world that God doesn't exist.

It's almost like they don't really think God exists or cares, but want to believe he does, so they go about creating a theology that would be equally true whether God exists or not.

In fact a lot of Christian-isms that are spread around the church read more like self help stuff and inspirational quotes that aren't much different in their philosophy and meaning from motivational quotes that unbelievers say to one another - they're just changed slightly to put them in a Christian setting.

Misinterpretation of faith as juxtaposition to atheism

The big disruption for me came with the modern churches emphasis on faith - which it seems to interpret as believing in the existence of God. But I don't think that's how the bible intended the word faith - because it was written in a time when practically everyone believed in some form of deity. The bible seems to use faith more as described by Paul in Hebrew 11 - a faith that trusts God above ourselves and our reason, and relying on God instead on our own strength or ingenuity. To me it seems like every time faith is used in the bible - it is used in this context and not in the modern context which treats it as a juxtaposition to atheism rather than a trust in God.

In fact when the bible talks about atheism or lack of belief - it uses the term unbelief. The term "lack of faith" was used by Jesus against his disciples who clearly believed in God. It is used many time in the bible to describe people who clearly were not atheist and who clearly believed in God. It was used as a criticism for those who lacked trust in God and wanted to trust in their own powers and knowledge.

Dire Implications of Churches dominated by unbelievers

Do you ever get the feeling that most Christians don't believe in God. They've just been raised in or found the church community, grown fond of it and just settled their because the people and the philosophy give them hope and support? If so, what can be done about this, it seems like under such circumstances churches are doomed to be dominated by unbelievers

Animal Sacrifice

Why did the omnipotent creator of the universe need middle eastern people to sacrifice goats and animals by cutting their throats and burning their bodies to obtain their blood for so long? Could there have been any other way to "pay for sin"? When I talk to people who are not Cristian they also don't see why god needed to impregnate a teenage middle eastern girl so her child could be butchered as a sacrifice to himself.

How can I explain this in a way that makes logical sense? Perhaps god had no choice in this matter and there is some law of the universe that forces him to need blood?

Amazon just banned Dr. Joseph Nicolosi's books

The book burnings continue. If you're not familiar, Dr. Nicolosi was the leading void for scientifically-proven reparative therapy for LGBT individuals for several decades.

Amazon Just Banned My Dad’s Therapy Books, Caving to LGBT Activists

by Joseph Nicolosi Jr.

>On Amazon, you can buy almost any book written throughout human history—from the Bible to Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” or even a book glorifying pedophilia.

>As of last week, however, you cannot get any of Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Sr.’s books about leaving homosexuality—because Amazon just banned them all.

>From 1981 until his death in 2017, my father was the driving force behind reparative therapy. He invented, refined, and used this innovative counseling method to help thousands of men overcome the effects of sexual abuse and other deep-seated childhood traumas.

>These men told my father that his scientifically sound practices helped re-orient their sexuality away from obsessions with pornography, and helped them reduce their unwanted same-sex attractions.

>The books Amazon banned are the continuation of my father’s legacy and of the changes that can take place through his methods. The books have hundreds of endorsements, from typical readers to past presidents of the American Psychological Association.

>In one comment, which Amazon has now “banned,” a man said the book “Reparative Therapy of Male Homosexuality” saved his marriage.

>Luckily for that man, he was able to find marital help before Amazon became the PC police. Today, he and many other families will now find fewer online resources than ever—not because science dictates their removal, but because LGBT ideology has shouted down sound science.

>While Amazon is banning books—and restricting choice among those with unwanted same-sex attractions—some state governments are banning my father’s therapeutic practices.

>But it’s clear that no government official who is voting to restrict client choice actually knows what reparative therapy entails. And with Amazon banning his books, radical LGBT activists hope to prevent even more lawmakers from ever finding out the truth.

<Contrary to what these activists and their allies at Amazon claim, my father never advocated so-called conversion therapy.

>Conversion therapy is broad, ill-defined, has no ethics code, no governing body, and is typically practiced by unlicensed individuals. My father had nothing to do with these or any similar practices, and as a therapist myself, I wholeheartedly condemn such a concept.

>What my father did do was use his psychological training and his Judeo-Christian worldview to help men overcome traumas that they—and he—believed were leading them into a life that did not reflect the men they were truly designed by their creator to be.

>He counseled families who were struggling with accepting their children, and he always told them, “Love your child, whatever the outcome of therapy may be.”

>This week’s book ban by Amazon and radical LGBT activists reveals the blatant hypocrisy of today’s leaders of the LGBT movement: They celebrate exploration of every kind of sexuality they can imagine, unless that exploration happens to lead an individual toward a traditional, heterosexual lifestyle. That sort of exploration, of course, must be banned.

>My hope is that there will be a large enough outcry from consumers that Amazon will rethink its decision. If it doesn’t, my dad’s books won’t be the last to get blacklisted.

RCC systematic theology is untrustworthy

If a system is contradictory, it is formally illogical and should be discarded. This is the case for systematic theology in the Roman church.

The Roman church simultaneously claims:

1 -Outside the Church there is no salvation

and

2 -Those who do not know the Gospel of Christ or his(sic) Church may too receive eternal salvation

>Catechism 846 & 847 http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0015/_P29.HTM

Remember that "church" here means the RCC, and to be "inside" the church means participation in the sacraments of the RCC (or deemed permissible by the RCC, like baptism from other churches).

Here are the available options I see:

>EENS (#1) really means that membership in the RCC is normative, it's not an exclusive statement. The two can be reconciled this way.

-arguing against the church's historic reading of the doctrine of EENS from Council of Florence and Fourth Lateran Council (incompatible with viewing the RCC as a source of special revelation)

>Baptism of desire (#2) is a false doctrine (Feeneyism)

-Q: why then is it being taught by the Roman church?

–A1: the doctrine is being corrupted and misleading but the RCC is still valid (naive)

–A2: the papal seat is empty, but traditional Roman theology is still correct (sedevacantism)

>EENS (#1) is wrong, especially if taken to mean "the church" as the RCC

-justification by faith alone

If you are a mainstream roman catholic today, you're either not paying attention or you're a doublethink idiot. I mean that charitably, because it is very urgent that you reconcile your doctrine before God.

Relationship thread

I sincerely apologize for the blogpost; I meant to post this in the relationship general on /christian/ but I was preemptively banned for nothing of course. My deepest apologies for starting a thread just for myself, let this be our relationship general then.

I am facing an existential problem; I used to be severely autistic and lame, unable to hold a conversation with anyone, totally fried with estrogen and insecurity and totally fucked up. as I grew older I remedied this greatly, through a series of events, relationships, and realisations that helped me come out of my shell. I've been doing fine since, but every now and again I find myself in such an awkward situation I begin to fear my whole life, if I may be hyperbolic. I find myself now, without immediate close friends, only people whom I have to act as someone else to, and never hang out with. My parents don't even believe I have any friends, which is such an existential insult to the male heir of their bloodline… a young man who is to become a man; with every skill and competency and piece of experience that comes with that. I am not a monk; I will need that growth. But this feels like maturation purgatory; what I mean is, this is intolerable.

I've also largely stagnated in this matter the past two years and I am seriously wondering if it is too late for me to grow into a likeable, good, not pathologically wrecked person carrying a ton of mental baggage around all the time. I, dare i say, know my purpose in life already, God have mercy on me, and it is absolutely essential I'm not for the matter. I've never felt dread like this, and I don't know whether to submit wholly and just be a physically vacant soul just adrift on God's will or try my hardest and just keep trying to grow, even with the mass of shame and indignity which constitutes my immediate and greater past.

I'm lying, I already know I'll devote my life to the latter, but it seems such a desperate and sad bid; for when I do devote my life to this thing that comes naturally to everyone, what else could I possibly devote it to, what else could I even do. I realise this is a very tiring and vague post, but has anyone had any similar experiences.

This is what Jesus says, this is what Paul says, this is what John says, this is what Peter says. The above writings are doctrinally erroneous and fail to preach the same Gospel of Jesus and Paul and John and Peter. They were disputed in the early Church and apostolic authorship for them hasn't even been thoroughly demonstrated.

Against those heretics called "Iconoclasts"

For the heretics call upon the scriptures by vainly twisting its words and creating their own meanings, and they even cite the prophet Moses who said,

"Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:"

(Deut 5:8)

But what did that holy prophet Daniel write?

"I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened." (Dan 7:9-10)

And who would admit that the Ancient of days is another than the Father himself? For both the Ancient of days and the Son of Man are spoken about here, God the Father and God the Son. Thus an icon of God is conjured up in our minds, and it was surely the intention of the prophet to do so, for why would he have described the Deity if he had not intended for an icon of him to become present in our minds? Even in the Old Testament there is a depiction.

(It must be noted that Icons may be generated in our minds by other means,

"He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler." (Pslm 91:4)

Indeed, the Psalms, and the Old Testament in its entirety, often speaks about God anthropomorphically. Yet it must be admitted here that the intentions of the psalmist and of the other authors are metaphorical rather than mystical in nature, like that of Daniel, and must only be considered a drop in the bucket of this defense, and this is known by their lack of true description. Now the Icons these generate in our mind are unintentional are have been spoken of so we might better identify with God as men or to stir up our love for God.)

Now what of the Son?

"And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength." (Rev 1:13-16)

John visions are a return to Daniels, and we know what he means by these things, for in his gospel he says,

"No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." (Jhn 1:18) And, "Philip saith unto him, 'Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.' Jesus saith unto him, 'Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?'" (Jhn 14:8-9)

John testifies to us the true Gospel, the catholic Gospel that the man, that holy apostle, Paul himself, preached when he wrote, "Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:" (Col 1:14)

Christ Jesus is the image of the Father, a perfect representation of him. Those heretics who break the icons and overthrow the images are deniers of the incarnation, having followed even the Iota but forgetting the spiritual nature of God, "for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life" (2 Cor 3:6)

We know that "God is a spirit" (Jhn 4:24), who is neither "like unto gold, or silver, or stone graven by art and man's device" (Act 17:29), and we mightily detest those heretics who say we worship the material of the icons. Rather we worship the figure represented by these. For we know that God gave representations of heavenly beings to Moses when he instructed him on building the ark of the holy covenant (Exod 25:18) So God himself came down, taking on the appearance of a man (Phil 2:8), and suffering on our behalf, revealing himself and his Father to the whole world through an image most especially in the suffering, death, and resurrection.

<1237. Until recently, Roman Catholic theologians adhered to the fourth-century threefold formula regarding Mary’s virginity: ante partum, in partu, et post partum (“before, in, and after the birth”). See Raymond E. Brown, The Birth of the Messiah (Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1977), 517–18. The “brothers and sisters” of Jesus have been explained either as children of Joseph by an earlier marriage or as Jesus’s cousins. See J.

To fight God

I was raised protestant, but eventually came to the conclusion that God did not exist based on classic dialectic discussions, though I myself always categorized myself as a hopeful agnostic since then, as outright denial I felt was equally foolish. There is little unique to my story; I found /pol/, was filled with the rage instilled in me by the social degenerates who degraded me and my race and the propagandized their rank and file empty headed communists and various racial surprise soup to both deny me right to be heard and branded me with the sin of being born white. I long since trained my mind and tempered my soul with vengeance, I hated and still hate freely those who demean my people, turn them into walking garbage can and corrupt the world.

But now even the people of /pol/ are a walking cesspit of larping empty headed creatures, posting the same meaningless, thoughtless tripe ad infinitum. They have like the left, devoured every ally who did not appease their endless needs and destroyed whatever power / unity they were actually beggining to accumulate in 2015 and 2016 and forfeited it KKK Redneck tier patheticism. The board infested likewise by CIA and FBI posters have also exacerbated their natural instinct to eat each other alive at every turn, and now stand utterly and hopelessly divided.

This and another event I shall not describe for brevity have levied me with a conclusion; that is, evil prevails. And yet in this thought I look out to the thought that in such case there must in fact be a God, for if no good can take true route but only parody or even partially imitate it, surely there is an other above whom this descends from. But from this revelation comes great and new found rage.

Why has such evils been visited upon us? Why are the caananites at our doors? Why must this Christians insist on Jesus and forgive their atrocities and obscenities, why not be like the Father who wiped Gomorah from the face of the earth for the blight it was? Why is it written "vengeance is mine", what right does God have to justice that is not his to take or savor? Why has the Father not raised an army like the Crusades of the last sons of his gospel to repel the evils of many nations? Why does he allow courage & beauty to die in place of cowardice and decadence?

If God ever shined his providence on America, would anyone disagree that he has left? That he has forsaken us to die amongst enemies and evils, raising children whom shall destroy us and destroy his gospel? Where are the Crusaders? Who are these Fops and trust fund lushes you push out as supposed speakers of Truth? Is it not true Lord, that might makes Right? Are you not the embodiement of such philosophy, for who would follow a God without fear of power, but more accurately, who instills fear in the enemies of God, supernatural and corporeal, and who is capable of offering salvation? Would you be worshipped if such things could not be garunteed? Why then should forgiveness be offered to the demons in flesh, the degenerates who murder their children, the rapers of countries old and young?

I cry out for answers, if you were flesh would we not wrestle? Is there one among your followers here who has even a lucid note of illumed thought of your Godly word, or should I merely expect the same tripe? Why, must evil prevail?

Trinity thread

There are posters here who have been denying the Trinity in a couple threads, so let's consolidate the discussion to a dedicated thread.

Question: Is God triune?

Basis for argument: What does the Bible teach, and what is philosophically consistent?

Definition of the Trinity, according to classical Christian trinitarians:

<God is three persons

<Each person is divine

<There is one God

Most common non-trinitarian positions:

>God the Father is the only God

>The Father and Jesus are divine, but the spirit is not or is not a person

>The spirit does not exist

>There is no God (atheism, excluded from our debate itt)

If you reject trinitarianism, please justify yourself and be ready for scrutiny.

Christian reading list

In classic imageboard culture, we should make a recommended book list. There's one or two floating around, but it's really just a bunch of titles with no structure.

I think it should be a work of systematic theology, persuading the reader to a position.

This is the best structured such infographic I've found, it should be a model.

Where did you start reading in systematic theology?

Did you get a hermeneutics book first?

Did you read a polemic for the conservative Christian position?

Would a chart have to be evangelical Protestant only and a different one Catholic only, or is there enough overlap in sys theology?

The question I have for the few Catholics here is, why did your Catholic "God on earth" clearly venerate a blasphemous book? I know Catholics are mostly atheists, so it probably didn't make any difference to him, but it's still no good reason to do it. Is it because many Catholics are pedophiles and Muslims are pedophiles too?

If you're a Christian you can give your opinion too, not just Catholics.

Pastor Steven Anderson

I believe Steven Anderson to be a messenger of God in many ways. He speaks like one of the prophets, no? He is like I'sai'ah or Mal'a'chi! He is like J'ohn the Baptist! J'ohn the Baptist lead the way for Je'sus Christ 2000 years ago. I believe Pastor Steven Anderson might be leading the way for the second coming of Christ. I'm not saying I know the time as our Lord Je'sus himself says, "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." (Matthew 24:36, KJV) And I say Amen to Jesus! I do believe though that he will be in some ways a new J'ohn the Baptist. Steven Anderson the Baptist! Amen! Soul winning will be revived! The KJV will become the standard in all Baptist churches! Faggots and homosexuals and dykes and LGBTQiawhateverthehell will be driven away from all that is holy! Women will dress modestly. Contraception will be preached against in all churches! Traditional Baptist hymns will be played. None of that contemporary crap. Rock music is music of The Devil plain and simple. Many folks don't know it but Satan infiltrates churches through Rock music. "Christian Rock" is deceptive. But that is what Satan does he "deceiveth the whole world". Amen. Je'sus may return in 1000 years or 100 years or 5 years or 40,000 years or 2 minutes from now. But I think after this great falling away we have expereinced, in some way, Pastor Anderson the Baptist and J'ohn the Baptist will be remembered as the greatest pastors ever besides our Lord and God and Saviour Je'sus Christ himself. Amen!

Demonic/dark forces

Christ Yeshua was very serious when He spake about demons and dark forces. I observed this piece of footage a few hours ago and it left me baffled. There is no doubt that there are dark forces in this plane of existence. The audio at 1:01 does not sound edited in. This sounds like something straight out of Hell itself. I know that I cannot possibly imagine the sounds from Hell, but this definitely sounds other-worldly without a doubt. From a so-called skin walker. What does /christianity/ think? There seems to always be dark things occurring in wooded areas such as forests and the like. Judge for yourself. But this is definitely intense and worth at least a discussion.

>The University of Notre Dame du Lac (or simply Notre Dame /ˌnoʊtərˈdeɪm/ NOH-tər-DAYM or ND) is a private Catholic research university in Notre Dame, Indiana.[7]

>Buttigieg is Christian,[76][77][78] and has said his faith has had a strong influence in his life.[79][49] His parents baptized him in a Catholic church as an infant and he attended Catholic schools.[80]

And he's a faggot of course:

>In a June 2015 piece in the South Bend Tribune, Buttigieg announced that he is gay.[93] He also is the first openly gay presidential candidate for the Democratic Party and the second overall, after Fred Karger, a Republican.[94]

>In December 2017 Buttigieg announced his engagement to Chasten Glezman, who has been a junior high school teacher for eight years; they had been dating since August 2015 after meeting on the dating app Hinge.[95][96][97] They were married on June 16, 2018, in a private ceremony at the Cathedral of St. James.[98][77] As of April 2019 Chasten also uses the surname Buttigieg.[99]

Why Theism

Theism: belief in the existence of God.

Here is how to become a theist via philosophy through logical necessity:

>1

Recognize that if ever there was nothing, nothing can spontaneously come into being. ex nihilo nihil fit; nothing comes from nothing.

>2

Recognize that something exists. If you're not satisfied with looking out your window and affirming that the world is really there, try thinking. If you have capacity to think, you exist. Cogito, ergo sum; I think, therefore I am.

>3

Recognize the law of causality. Every material effect must have an adequate antecedent or simultaneous cause. So, everything that exists either exists in and of itself, or is produced by something else.

Given these, the only answer that satisfies all three is the existence of a first uncaused cause. That cause is God.

If you weren't before, you are now a theist.

Fleeting Depiction of Lesbian Mothers in ‘Toy Story 4’ Characterized as Being ‘Subtle to Desensitize

And that's obviously the case. If the Walt Disney company is openly affirming the sexual revolution, and those revolutionaries are praising an action by the company, we should presume that it was intended.

http://archive.is/VEzZN

>The quiet and fleeting depiction of lesbian mothers in an opening scene of “Toy Story 4” is being praised by homosexual advocates as a “small moment of normalization.” However, the cursory inclusion has also raised concern among some family groups who opine that it is a “subtle [way] to desensitize children” to homosexuality.

>According to reports, in the beginning of the animated film, as Woody’s new owner, Bonnie, attends her first day of kindergarten, in the background — among the other children arriving for class — is a boy who is dropped off by two women. The women, who appear to be the child’s “mothers,” also embrace the boy as they return later at the end of the school day.

>“[I]t’s certainly not the major representation that queer people have been waiting for, but it’s still important. This is one of the biggest movies of the year, after all, and will be seen by millions of all ages around the world,” opined the UK Gay Times.

>“Here was a major family-friendly film, one of the biggest Disney Pixar releases, and they included a lesbian couple with their son. It’s a small moment of normalization, even if it’s minor,” The Mary Sue also remarked.

"Normalization" is the same as desetization. Definitively, only the abnormal needs normalizing.

Was Vatican II really behind everything?

I am sympathetic to the Trad Cath critique of the modern Catholic Church, but it seems to me like, far from what they allege, the so-called Catholic Church had fallen into innovation and heresy long before Vatican II. The only thing these people seem to care about is their precious Latin Mass, which is dubious in itself, and they also tack on criticisms of certain innovations which every Christian obviously despises, such as how John Paul II and Francis have pandered to infidels and sodomites. Yet they conveniently ignore how, even before Vatican II, the Church had long been gradually changing its teachings and softening its positions on things like slavery, usury, crusade, Muslims, Jews, etc. The Catholic Church has always softened its views on such thing in accordance with how society in general has changed its views on them. There has hardly ever been any real respect for Tradition at all.

Consuming blood?

I don't understand. Why is it so many Christians do not abstain from the blood of animals? Are they afraid it's Judaizing? I'll admit I sort of was but after looking into it more I have come to a more precise understanding.

The commandment was given before the Law, before the people of Israel or the Hebrews were even a thing. God told Noah,

>Every moving thing that is alive shall be food for you; I give all to you, as I gave the green plant. Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood." - Genesis 9:3-4

The New Testament itself commands it,

>"Therefore it is my judgment that we do not trouble those who are turning to God from among the Gentiles, but that we write to them that they abstain from things contaminated by idols and from fornication and from what is strangled and from blood." - Acts 15:19-20

Blood is the life. It is why Jesus says,

>"So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves." - John 6:53

We who are in the body of Christ must share in his life for eternal salvation, for in our baptisms were are crucified with him, and we are raised with him to eternal life (Romans 6:3-4). We share in a communion when consuming the holy Eucharist, being a part of the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12-13).

On the sacrificial animal the Israelite would lay his sin upon it, and it is through its life that purification would be possible (Leviticus 17:11). But Christ came and put on our humanity, not to simply stand in place of us, for we know that the blood of lambs and bulls does not actually forgive sin (Hebrews 10:4). Christ perfects our humanity, and this culminates on the cross where our salvation is, and in his resurrection whereby we too might be raised. Christ is the second Adam (1 Corinthians 15:22), and his life and death restore us to Eden, so by participating in his life and death in baptism and the literal eating and drinking of his blood, we gain eternal life.

Consuming the blood of another being is attempting to participate in the life of that being, life of which there is no merit or salvation. Especially in the case of a sacrificial animal it would put our sins right back on us by participating in a life offered for sin, pouring out the blood the Lord to atone.

Roman Catholics have set aside the Apostolic decree, but thankfully everyone on here knows their sect is wrong. I'm glad I've matured and I think I'm going to convert to Orthodoxy soon. But anyway, I'm just saying that the Biblical text both Old and New prohibit the consumption of blood. What do you guys think? I'm open to other suggestions.

In the inverse, this means that you don't need to train until you're an expert apologist before sharing the gospel. The reality of God is already an observable fact to everyone you encounter.

God bless

How to approach evangelizing a Jordan Peterson follower?

A nonbeliever friend of mine is lost and in need of Christ. He has recently shown receptivity and curiosity for the Christian message. I continue to pray for God to draw him to Himself.

This friend has previously never had much inclination to philosophical thinking and the like, until recently. He has spoken favorably about Jordan Peterson and owns a copy of his book "12 Rules for Life". I have never seen him reading anything before so this may be a change in his priorities. I think he is searching for meaning.

I don't have much respect for self-help books nor Peterson's dishonest use of the Christian ethos in his efforts to reform his cult following of young, wayward men. I have mentioned the latter once to my friend but I did not want to belittle what could be his first real search for true meaning in life, so I said no more.

How do you all think I should approach my friend to share the Gospel?

Would it look any differently than if I wanted to talk to any atheist?

More info: A stumbling block for my friend is how he sees the morals of the Bible. He is unconvinced, for example, that a heterosexual marriage is at all more morally good than a homosexual union since a homosexual union is between consenting adults and "doesn't hurt anyone". As far as I can tell, his view of morality is that people just do what works for them and that is what's good.

Following my gut I intend to share first and foremost my love of Christ and how mind-blowing he is as seen in the Bible.

This thread may not be necessary since my friend hasn't seen fit to bring up Peterson again, but I thought it could provoke some good discussion. Thoughts?

Enemy to the world

I'm a criminal defence lawyer and I just sat through an infuriating sentencing hearing. The judge screamed and yelled and played silly games and acted like a demoniac all trial. Finally he convicted someone who was likely innocent and sentenced him to a long jail term.

When a judge is merciful to some one accused of a crime, it makes the papers and everyone is outraged. But no one cares when a judge shows no mercy, convicts people who are likely innocent based on flimsy grounds and gives outrageously disproportionate sentence.

Given a choice between judgement and mercy, I want to be on the side of mercy every time. And if this heartless world is against me, that's all the more evidence I'm right. Christians believe that one day God will rain fire on this whole wicked world. As far as I'm concerned that day can't come soon enough. Doing this job has thought me the meaning of "he who is a friend to this world is an enemy of God."

What's it like being a criminal defence lawyer? For me, I've started cheering on natural disasters and I now think hell i a splendid idea. I hope many judges and politicians will spend an eternity there.

Pointless thread.

I'm an atheist living in the West. Christianity is on the decline in my country, and I don't think people here fully appreciate what it is that we're losing. It's not like people are becoming more intelligent and enlightened (*tips*), instead they're increasingly just fucking around with crystals and shit. Meanwhile our national identity has become weakened with the loss of a shared set of values and beliefs. On the personal level it's even worse because church attendance has historically been an important source of community in people's lives. I guess what I'm trying to say is that a religion has benefits. And if we must have a religion I'd rather it was the one of Christ. He's undeniably good, almost impossibly so. If there was a God I would believe Christ was his son.

So I hear the term Jesuits tossed about in conspiracy theories or rants quite a bit, but don't really know a lot about them. From light research, I know that they're a Catholic religious order that engaged in evangelism, school founding, and took part in some black ops style stuff against the Protestants as part of the Counter-Reformation. But I've even heard Catholics themselves speak of the Jesuits with disdain and distrust.

This may mean that frankly, I may be more open to islam, because the muslims are a bit more tolerant of cannabis.

Dispensationalism vs. Covenant Theology

I'm sure a lot of you here believe in dispensationalist theology, and I'd like to talk about it for the sake of becoming more informed. It's been a concern for me as of late, since I got into a discussion with a friend and found out that he believes Jews are granted salvation, somehow, through Christ, without believing in Christ.

So here are my first objections:

1) To claim that God intended for Christ to be messiah only to the Jews, yet that they rejected him, upsetting God's plan, completely denies God's supreme sovereignty.

2) The belief that the ceremonial law, including the sacrificial system, will be reinstated during Christ's reign denies the sufficiency of Christ's sacrifice.

3) If Jews do not accept the New Covenant, they are still bound to the Mosaic Covenant, thus dooming them to hell.

4) This interpretive scheme is less than 200 years old.

5) Scofield himself was a heathen, and the publishing of the Scofield Bible was likely funded by zionists. ( https://www.wrmea.org/015-october/the-scofield-bible-the-book-that-made-zionists-of-americas-evangelical-christians.html http://pilgrim-platform.org/2010/c-i-scofield/ )

Atheism doesn't work logically...

The fact that the moon is 400 times smaller than the sun and the sun is 400 times farther away from the moon than from the earth so that a perfect solar eclipse can happen should prove God to a lot of atheists. Otherwise it would be an astronomical coincidence that is almost on the scale of impossible. Sure it could happen, but the fact that it happens to us counted with the fact that as far as we know we are the only planet in the 93 billion light year wide universe harboring life should pretty much prove God right there.

Tridentine Creed

I, with a firm faith believe and profess each and everything which is contained in the Creed which the Holy Roman Church maketh use of. To wit:

The Apostolic and Ecclesiastical traditions and all other observances and constitutions of that same Church I firmly admit to and embrace.

I also accept the Holy Scripture according to that sense which holy mother the Church hath held, and doth hold, and to whom it belongeth to judge the true sense and interpretations of the Scriptures. Neither will I ever take and interpret them otherwise than according to the unanimous consent of the Fathers.

I also profess that there are truly and properly Seven Sacraments of the New Law, instituted by Jesus Christ our Lord, and necessary for the salvation of mankind, though not all are necessary for everyone; to wit, Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Extreme Unction, Holy Orders, and Matrimony; and that they confer grace; and that of these, Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Orders cannot be repeated without sacrilege. I also receive and admit the accepted and approved ceremonies of the Catholic Church in the solemn administration of the aforesaid sacraments.

I embrace and accept each and everything which has been defined and declared in the holy Council of Trent concerning original sin and justification.

I profess, likewise, that in the Mass there is offered to God a true, proper, and propitiatory sacrifice for the living and the dead; and that in the most holy sacrament of the Eucharist there is truly, really, and substantially, the Body and Blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ; and that a conversion takes place of the whole substance of the bread into the Body, and of the whole substance of the wine into the Blood, which conversion the Catholic Church calls Transubstantiation. I also confess that under either species alone Christ is received whole and entire, and a true sacrament.

I steadfastly hold that there is a Purgatory, and that the souls therein detained are helped by the suffrages of the faithful. Likewise, that the saints, reigning together with Christ, are to be honored and invoked, and that they offer prayers to God for us, and that their relics are to be venerated. I most firmly assert that the images of Christ, of the Mother of God, ever virgin, and also of other Saints, ought to be kept and retained, and that due honor and veneration is to be given them.

I also affirm that the power of indulgences was left by Christ in the Church, and that the use of them is most wholesome to Christian people.

I acknowledge the Holy Catholic Apostolic Roman Church as the mother and teacher of all churches; and I promise true obedience to the Bishop of Rome, successor to St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles, and Vicar of Jesus Christ.

I likewise undoubtedly receive and profess all other things delivered, defined, and declared by the sacred Canons, and general Councils, and particularly by the holy Council of Trent, and by the ecumenical Council of the Vatican, particularly concerning the primacy of the Roman Pontiff and his infallible teaching. I condemn, reject, and anathematize all things contrary thereto, and all heresies which the Church hath condemned, rejected, and anathematized.

This true Catholic faith, outside of which no one can be saved, which I now freely profess and to which I truly adhere, I do so profess and swear to maintain inviolate and with firm constancy with the help of God until the last breath of life. And I shall strive, as far as possible, that this same faith shall be held, taught, and professed by all those over whom I have charge. I N. do so pledge, promise, and swear, so help me God and these Holy Gospels of God.

Hello. I think I am the only Copt on this board. I was on /christian/ before I got banned a long time ago. I am from Egypt but I no longer live there. Please excuse my english if it is not that great. Ask me anything everyone. :)

Paganism

Paganism is not an existential threat to Christianity irl (at least right now)

The singular most important site of Paganism, on their most important day of the year, draws this crowd.

That's a crowd, but my church alone manages that on a normal sunday, 52 weeks of the year.

How many do you think treat it merely as a point of culture, rather than spiritual? At least half?

Should rennaisance festival-goers be counted as pagan statistics too?

Remember this the next time you get involved with a larper on the internet.

seedy televangelists

BBC does expose on seedy televangelists.

https://www.bbc.com/news/stories-47675301

This kind of heresy seems to be very popular in America and is growing worldwide as well.

Why do people still fall for this stuff?

Is there anything Christians can do to oppose it?

Christian communities

Recommend Christian online communities that aren't full of redditors and "leftist Christians."

I like to read the game reviews on https://www.christcenteredgamer.com/. For each game they review, they provide a "morality score," based on Christian teachings. Solid Christian gals and lads on that site.
