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.

Dr. Ryan Reeves:

He's a theology professor at Gordon-Conwell seminary and basically gives you a PHD course on theology and church history for free in short, easy to understand videos.

The playlists for church history, reformation history, and Luther and Calvin are outstanding. He has solid information on all of the denominations. But has a large encyclopedia of Catholic, Lutheran, and Calvinist thought. Even goes into a lot of detail of chruch/denomination history in America.

I can't say enough how great this was and how much it helped me learn about Christianity.

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.

The rock verse is not the make or break one, the following verses are more important.

I will give you the the keys - only the highest clergy authority had the keys to the temple.

Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven… - also something only the clerical authority could do.

Hence to any hebrew hearing those words it would be clear that Jesus is giving authority to Peter.

>>12726

Sola scriptura is a manmade tradition whose fruits is thousands of christian sects and counting. All it takes is someone thinking they know better, and humans are specially tuned to do that due to our fallen prideful nature.

Jesus mandated a hierarchy as everything in existence functions through hierarchy, He made creation like this. That s.s. tradition is a rebellion against God's will and its fruits show it.

the word petros is the masculine form of the word petra (rock)

it would not be appropiate for Jesus to give St. Peter a feminine name, so in that sentence he says it clearly: you are the rock and upon this rock I will build my church.

This Pentecost I got baptized by full submersion. It was a surreal experience. Entering the congregation in my white robe with everyone standing up felt a little bit like getting married.

Then I had to sit through the first part of the service, while the tension slowly built up.

After entering the font and declaring Jesus as my Lord and savior I started dazing and I was completely stunned when I emerged again.

After changing into my regular clothes, I got showered with gifts by various parish members.

What a day, glory to the Lord!

Well not everyone's experience is the same. I'm Christian and still want to kill myself every day and pray regularly to God to kill me so I won't have to do it myself. Stopped going to church too since they just flat-out lie to people about the state of the world and reinforce status quo. Now I just stay home and read the Bible by myself.

Officially, the UMC still opposes homosexuality. It's a violation of church law and incompatible with the Christian teaching. Yes, there are a few individual churches and districts that defy the General Conference, and depending, they're liable for disciplinary action. They're the exception however, not the rule.

There has been no split in the denomination. One has been proposed, but it has not been voted on and won't be voted on until the 2020 General Conference; though that has been postponed to 2021. And, it may not even pass; though it is likely. However, it'll likely be the case that it won't pass unless the conservatives get more concessions such as retaining the UMC name and securing more funds for the traditionalist churches. Conservatives are the majority in this, and as always, it's just a loud, belligerent minority screeching until they get their way. Thankfully, the conservatives have not caved into any demands by the pro-LGBT crowd yet

All three of you could be correct and here is why. Adam, in the day he was created, was in the image of God. What does that mean? In Genesis 5:1-2

>THIS is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;

>Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

Adam and Eve in the day they were created were called Adam, since its like marriage. The wife takes the name of the husband in the marriage. So going back to Genesis 1:27-28

>So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

So God created Adam and Eve, calling them Adam and then gave the order in verse 28

>And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

He ordered them being a single unit, in the day they were created and called Adam, to be fruitful and multiply. That is what the image of God is, being able be fruitful and multiply as a single unit. God does not require a wife to reproduce/create things. Nor did Adam in the day they were created as God ordered Adam to be fruitful and multiply the very next verse. But shortly thereafter when Eve was taken out of Adam was Adam no longer able to be fruitful and multiply by himself like God can, therefore was no longer in the image of God. See Matthew 19:3-6

>The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

>And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at thePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

The idea of a feminine "holy spirit" might comes from the kabalistic-jewish idea of the chechinah or Shekinah spirit. Which is the female expression of the jewish maingod Ein Sof.

Also Shekinah or anything similar is not in the new, not in the old Testament but comes straight from the Kabalah.

There was this jewish couple on Trunews teaching a tiny bit about "Adam Kadmon" which is another jewish fable about Adam being a mixed being partly male and female.

However you can take from the bible quite certain, that Adam wasn't divided into male and female later.

But God made Adm in his picture and then took the rib of Adam later and made Eve out of his rib. Not out of the "leftover female body parts" or something.

Can the holy ghost fullfill the requirements of being female?

To be female you need to be able to bear children, have female genetics, female bodily structure. Since the holy ghost is not made of flesh, he can obviously not be female.

The mother of Our God, Jesus Christ. You can ask Mother Mary to pray for you, just like any other saint, but when you pray to God, your prayers don't pass through her first, they go directly to Christ and then to God The Father. Mary is a very important figure in Orthodoxy, but we don't worship her or put her on the same level as God.

Indeed. It's been roughly a year ever since i had left the monastery i was at and i've been doing a lot of research on the theological history of christianity besides learning biblical hebrew and koine greek.

I wasn't so sure at the time of writing that post, but now i can say for a certain, i am definately going to end up starting my own sect. Not that its my goal, but its what my current conclusions will inevitably lead to. All i have left now is continue my study and pray to the Almighty for his guidance

sounds like you still engage in impure acts which violate the 6th and 9th commandments. you must stay away from anything relating to sex if you wish to become closer to God.

Anon. Sadly I know that feel. Life is really hard, because we're not in Heaven yet. The questions you must ask yourself is why would you like to be satisfied? Is it some kind of consumerist drive? A Netflix religion search, searching for the next fix? I'm not Catholic myself, but Catholics have a giant advantage that most Protestants overlook. The Saints. You are not alone, people have lived before you and had the same struggles as you do. Or as Ecclisiastes says it "nothing is new under the Sun". I would suggest you read Confessions by (St.) Augustine, it is an eye-opener and I think the book takes up some of the themes that worry you. I will pray for you to find peace with Lord. God bless you Anon.

Well, your friend should learn dogmatics. I can tell why Lutheran's don't consider marriage a sacrament. A sacrament is something that is created by God (marriage is, but wait), gives grace (marriage doesn't) and has something material connected to it (marriage doesn't). Word of God gives grace, but it's not a sacrament as it has nothing material - it is God's work in the heart of the believer. The only two sacraments (legit churches) recognize are baptism and eucharist. Also, I don't see why some Protestans claim that bread doesn't remain Jesus' body after the words of institution - that's just some weird Protestant pragmatics which I don't agree with. Hope it was a good answer.

Also:

Don't listen to heretics, but remember that even though the priest is a woman her sacraments and her preaching are still legit as it is God's a not her work, if she's a bad preacher find a normal priest. If someone marries gay-homos in the Church, ignore their propaganda and pray for them. Maybe they're lost, and need a sign from God.

Calvinism, molinism, and arminianism are all wrong, provisionism (or "traditionalism" in the SBC) is correct.

>he's a former calvinist professor himself and is extremely meticulous about definitions.

I'm aware of what he claims to be, but honest to God, if he's being sincere, he could not have ever understood proper Calvinism and he won't accept correction. It's infuriating. His definitions may be precise, but that doesn't make them accurate.

>which is a total grasp at straws.

If he's insincere, then his consistent inability to correctly define Calvinist doctrines can only be interpreted as deceitful. I have an extremely difficult time believing that someone as intelligent as him can't accurately represent an opposing position. Would he have this same problem representing Mormon doctrines or sacralism or something? If he did, then I'd be more inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.

>Even still, you have not brought an argument.

My argument is that the only way the soteriological position in OP's image seems different from Pelagianism to me is that he's trying to shoehorn in OSAS while calling it Eternal Security for some reason. (Those are not the same thing.) Otherwise his position is pretty much a point-by-point reversal of at least 4 of Calvinism's 5 points. All he did was repackage the same old nonsense under a new name to try to make it look more legitimate because he's so hung up on the idea of God not interfering with man's will.

R - He specifically says man is able to respond. This is poorly defined and doesn't make clear what his view of man's will is. Why is man able to respond? Is there some kind of enabling grace or is man's will not corrupted to begin with? He has literally said before that an exercise of man's free will is an act of "creatio ex nihilo", which gives me the impression that he has a very high view of man's condition. Maybe he just didn't understand the implications of that, but I'm not sure.

You're not meaning pelagian lightly, sure, you're just using liberally throwing it around despite the weight it carries as an accusation. That's a dumb tactic so stop using it. It doesn't help your case, traditionalism is obviously not pelagian.

What does he not understand about Calvinism that you do? You're just waving your hand alluding to these mistakes as if I'm supposed to just blindly affirm your anonymous judgment of his doctrine

The acronym is just a tool like TULIP. Criticizing how the tool is constructed is not arguing against the position.

>you're just using liberally throwing it around despite the weight it carries as an accusation.

I just went through the points that I take issue with and demonstrated exactly why I'm concerned that he may be expressing a form of Pelagianism, focusing on the ambiguity of his view of the human condition. How is that liberal usage? The defining feature of Pelagianism is a denial of original sin. The way some of those doctrines are defined logically necessitates a denial of original sin, unless he somewhere provides a mechanism around that. Feel free to provide me with a clarification from his website or something if he does that somewhere.

>traditionalism is obviously not pelagian

"Traditionalism" is not traditional by any stretch of the imagination, but regardless, the current soteriology of most Southern Baptists today is not Pelagian. I'm questioning whether he's actually even being fully consistent with them at this point. The further into explanations he tries to go to explain Free Will, the more heretical his explanations are going to have to get to give it consistency. Modern Southern Baptists can only go so deep with soteriology before they have to throw up their hands and say "It's a mystery! The roads of free will and predestination meet together in eternity!", but Leighton is trying to take it deeper. This is his area of focus and he's determined to make it work.

>What does he not understand about Calvinism that you do?

See video. That one is from Leighton's channel.

>Total Inability –→ No one can want God unless God wants them.

>Unconditional Election –→ God does not want everyone.

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.

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.

>Levitical law has been fulfilled, it is no longer relevant.

post at least 3 verses that overturn GOD's eternal Commandments:

>17 “Do not think that I came to do away with or undo the Law [of Moses] or the [writings of the] Prophets; I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For I assure you and most solemnly say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke [of the pen] will pass from the Law until all things are accomplished. 19 So whoever breaks one of the least [important] of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least [important] in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever practices and teaches them, he will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

>20 “For I say to you that unless your righteousness (uprightness, moral essence) is more than that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Ever read Acts 15? The reason animals with hooves are clean is because the hooves suspend them over the ground God cursed in Genesis 3, and they're split hoofed because the Israelites are supposed to walk straight, not to the left/right. (The significance of that is what Christ says, broad is the way to destruction, narrow is the way to life.)
