I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.—Psalm 104:33

Greetings fellow Christanons. Grace, mercy, and peace be upon you from our Lord Jesus Christ.

I was tasked by our dear B.O. Ezekiel to organize a /christian/ choir, where board members sing various Christian hymns and songs together. I envision this working as follows:

1. We select a piece that people want to sing.

2. Brothers and sisters, hopefully, who want to sing contact me.*

3. I find/arrange parts for the selected piece and give volunteers their parts.**

4. Volunteers practice and record their parts and send them to me.

5. I compile the recordings and post the final product to a youtube channel and on this board.

As our first song, Ezekiel recommended "Non Nobis Domine" to the setting in the 1989 Henry V film (embedded). We could do this or something else if there are other suggestions in this thread (I may make a poll if people have lots of ideas). One advantage of this particular piece is if there are not enough people comfortable singing parts, I can just ask volunteers to sing in unison matching the video.

As an amateur musician, I have sung in choirs, led musical groups, and recorded music before; however, I have not had to deal with compiling recordings from people whose ability I have no prior knowledge of, so this will be a learning experience for me. I ask your patience if I mess up or have to change something halfway through.

So, in this thread, I would like people who are interested in singing to let me know, and also to decide on what song we shall sing first. Any other suggestions or comments on the project as a whole are welcome. I will use the following email to coordinate volunteers: choirmaster -at- protonmail -dot- com

Thank you for your interest and participation.

“But I have prayed for you, that your faith would not fail. And you, when you have turned back, strengthen your brethren.”

Luke 22:32

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

Confess your offences to one another and pray for one another in order to be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective!

ugly moment of crisis going on, I feel very tired and depressed, I keep sinning without seeking to better myself…I even had suicidal thoughts again lately.

If you can keep me in your prayers, I just need to find the strength to bear patiently and take the first step towards a more mature faith.

God bless you all.

Guys, if evolution is true then God isn't real or at least a christian god who cares about us isn't sorry Theistic evolutionists you really are deluding yourselves. The problem is i'm starting to think it is real the creationist science amounts to little more than crank ramblings i'm gonna pray and see what happens hopefully something will change my mind.

Hey dude good job with the posts of KJV verses. One minor suggestion (really minor, not a big deal) is pasting full passages though and not jumping around as much. Like if you posted a full KJV chapter or something that would probably be more convenient for us. Anyway at least you got the version right so great job putting that together. I agree with those verses 100% and enjoy every time I read them during my cover to cover readings.

Is it wrong to get baptized again? I was baptized a long time ago. However, after playing bioshock infinite, even though it's just a game, and it obviously wasn't me being baptized in the game (and also repenting of it because it really is an evil game), it's still bothering me. Is it possible to get a rededication baptism?

You were baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Trinity baptized you, and the ones allowing it were in charge of you (your parents) and thus make all your religious and social decisions (but also take their accountability).

You cannot re-baptize yourself, that would be sacrilege and denying the power of God.

Their original baptism is enough, because the effects of baptism are not connected to the time of baptism.

To deny Mary is not the mother of God is to deny that Christ is God. This is heresy, and was recognized as such over 1500 years ago.

This could work, but no one sees Joseph as Jesus Christ's actual Father.

Also even from a Sola Scriptura perspective you should note that Joseph disappears from the narration long before Christ reaches adulthood because he died, while Mary remains a note-worthy character throughout the entire gospels, and there's a big difference between temporary step-father and mother.

I want to convert but how am I supposed to deal with my inappropriate arousal? Months of doing NoFap hasn't helped in the slightest, it only made it worse and, knowing myself, I'm realizing that there's no way it can go away. If one has a paraphilia (that was ironically discovered through actual strong hatred of it) that will never ever ever ever be acted upon hurting someone in real life even if it were possible with no consequences, but that is only actually a masturbatory fantasy and has been masturbated to a bit less than 50 times over the last three years though masturbation was almost daily, is damnation still inevitable? Does Jesus look at me with contempt when I'm aroused by what I normally shouldn't be aroused by? What if even after testing myself multiple times with the intention to resist I just couldn't help getting aroused so it's not like I wanted to be?

"I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh." The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" 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 you; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats me will live because of me. This is the bread which came down from heaven, not such as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live for ever." This he said in the synagogue, as he taught at Caper′na-um. Many of his disciples, when they heard it, said, "This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?"

Catholic anons, I have a question. I don't mean to condescend, I'm just curious.

I live nearby 2 heavily catholic cities. They're the most catholic areas in my state. However, I've noticed, in having friends from those cities, that the catholic adolescents tend to be the most sinful and sexually depraved Christians I've ever met. They all seem to turn out as degenerate, and partake in seemingly exclusively sinful behavior, most notably sexual promiscuity, infidelity, and premarital sex.

Why is this the case? Catholicism doesn't seem like a bad denomination that would churn out such people, and yet almost all the catholic I know have turned out like this. My father insists it's "repression" (because he thinks everything is sexual repression so he can excuse his adultery and sinfully promiscuous lifestyle), but I know Freudian nonsense isn't the case.

To be clear that teacher was explicitly an atheist, not a Catholic.

I should find it odd that a Catholic school would hire non-Catholic teachers, but I'm not.

AMEN! Parents can be positive or negative role-models, but they're a role-model regardless

>This is it, right here. Nobody believes anymore. People don't go to church anymore to be filled with the Holy Spirit, they go to church to be bored. They go to church because their parents made them. 90% of them have never bothered studying any of the Bible. They just show up, sing along, criticize the other women's outfits, and go eat lunch. There's no love, no devotion, no study. Only routine and worship of false idols.

DOUBLE-Amens. You are giving me goosebumps reading that bruh

"Equal opportunity"

Because society thinks they know better than Churches how to teach kids the faith

But, further to my early suggestion that the heathenism begins with the education bosses, take the Immaculata High School case

where the Priest (they say Pastor for some reason) suspended a teacher who posted something rather innocuous:

In my country the catholic schools were/are state-sponsored and thus have to move along in certain degrees.

Political correctness is very important for prestige, and although anyone can legally start a school you'll be shunned by the media for being "backwards" and "racist" and whatnot.

I know a school with only 4 or 5 students as of now.

Everybody called it the backwards school for people from our most right conservative party (of which none of the children's parents are a member as far as I know).

The catholicism in catholic schools is gone, that's for sure.

Schools are no replacement for parents. If the parents rely heavily on the school to teach their children good Christian morals, they will be sorely disappointed

I grew up in a split family. My mother and father (before they got divorced) attended a protestant church, while my maternal grandfather is head elder of a Church of Christ (my denom), and my father, after the divorce, went full independent and heretical with his views. My sister-in-law was raised baptist but has converted to Protestantism. Simply put, I've been around a few denoms throughout my life, and I've noticed a lot of differences between the ones I've seen, but I still have questions for those more knowledgeable about their denom than I.

This thread is supposed to be about answering any questions people have about a particular denom, so we can all learn more about each other.

Here's mine:

>Catholics: what is the reason behind statues of Mary people always talk about? Also, what is the Pope's actual role in terms of relationship with God? I was told, growing up, by my protestant mother that the Pope was supposed to speak to God, but that never seemed correct to me.

>Eastern Orthodox: What's the major difference between the structure of your church and faith vs the catholic church?

For additional (though not comprehensive) info on papal infallibility, read the Catholic Encyclopedia article.

http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07790a.htm

There is also a document called The Gift of Infallibility (the basis for the definition of papal infallibility given at Vatican I) by Bishop Gasser. I remember there being an HTML version available online but I can't find it right now.

Denomination is not determined by parental lineage. Your denomination is determined solely by you. If you join a Methodist Church, then you are Methodist. If you join a Baptist Church, then you are Baptist. So on and so on.

Every church/denomination has its own rules for who constitutes a "member of the church".

Thank you for linking this page. Reading other entries will help me further understand catholic doctrine beyond the ravings ignorant protestants.

What is Vatican II and what's the difference between it and Vatican I?
