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!

European union is going to fail this will happen and maybe soon, 2, 3 years at most. What's going to happen to Rome how will it effect this effect the Church?

The satanic elite are losing Europe, unlike under Obama, America under Trump won't be putting political pressure on the Church anymore which we know America was doing.

What's going to happen to Pope Francis? Regardless of what you think of him his political opinions, and they are just opinions, will come into conflict with, if the the French and Dutch elections go good are going to conflict with these countries' leaders and if Italy leaves the EU and goes the same way, that's gonna be an interesting situation. What's going to happen when there won't be a globalist EU to effect the Church? And geo-politically what will happen? Will we have the Papal states again or what?

Ok bear with me /christian/ this is a long story. Im not going to bother with green text as this requires a more unambiguous explanation.

Four years ago, at the age of 14 my parents separated and I found solace in a church, more specificly however is youth group. Every friday for the following four years I attended it and the leaders and members of it came and went but those who stayed almost felt as family to me. That was until a girl, lets call her Autry about two years ago started coming to the youth. I never exactly cared to know her too well as I presumed her to be another one who comes and will leave when they have enough. That was until she transfered to my highschool. Im a senior now, she is as well but I got too know her very well. One of the few if not only true christian freinds in school. Shes everything I love, but only as of late (past few months) have I started to realize that I have an aroused attraction to her. Theirs more to the story but the TL:DR of this is that I became very close to a girl, who we consider eachother to be good freinds, both in church and school and im debating on making a move to a more serious relationship, possibly ruining or outright stopping out longterm freindship. What do I do?

Ok let me start from the beginning now that I have calmed down a bit. Im currently on spring break so i started up a game of G-mod with two friends of mine. When we were done we did a skype call and one of them had her number (idk how) and gave it to the other. They called her and her father picked up, since last time they attempted to prank call her she knew it was them and screwed them over. But this time she handed the phone to her father and he picked up and was saying a bunch of stuff to them. Then one of my ex-freinds lets call him ferguson says the other ex freinds name lets call him Colton. He says this "Hi my name is colton balderson and im an alleged sex offender and I have to alert everyone in the area". This was stupid of him as she knows Colton and knows its a prank call. After that Ferguson says this "Hey do you know OP?" her father replies with no, then Ferguson follows with "Well hes the big kid that stalks your daughter, ask her about him". Then he hangs up. Now again the problems are that this was on her birthday, and im extremly angry that they did this on her birthday. Second I was planning on hanging with her on friday but now that ferguson the great asshole he is said that im stalking her to her father that might seem weired, especially since she despised this one kid who did stalk her and he caused her a ton of issues. And now icing on top of the cake of all of this was that as i was typing this I was sent a screenshot of them posting her Instagram link in a game of CSGO on degenerate-chat.

Am i screwed /christ/. Because now I think the only non-obscene women who is everything I both respect and love, that my chances are gone. I havent done anything /christ/ that would do her harm. I don't know what to do, or even how to explain this to her.

You cannot let this get in your way.

Explain to her. However. Send a message or call her (preferably). Maybe even go to her house and knock on her door and explain everything. If her father answers the door, explain to him. You need to clear your name, you can't let those idiots ruin this for you. What kind of friend does that?

Stay strong, man. Just stick to the truth and you can't go wrong. There's a reason it frees your soul.

Thanks man but what I think ill do is either

A) Give her a call tomorrow or Thursday and ask what happened, and give a reasonable explanation of why they did what they did to both me and her.

B) Play dumb and ask if she want's to hang out on Friday before youth and go with it from their to see if this was a problem or not.

or

C) Wait until I see her on Friday at youth and then see what she says, if anything at all.

To be honest I think C) to be the easiest one of the three, but IDK if my heart can wait to see what happens two-three days from now.

>Are there any Orthodox saints that have spoken against young earth creationism?

There is a current Orthodox Hieromonk, retired Archbishop Lazar Puhalo, who does have an active channel on YouTube, that calls out Creationism and backs science.

Here is one of his video on Creationists.

lol trust me I know about this guy

I said saint for a reason and I would bet everything I have that this man will not be recognized as a saint. That is not to say I think think he will not go to heaven, but recognization as a saint has a certain function and I pretty firmly believe he will not be recognized as a saint


0974a9 No.403369

>>403292

what are you talking about.


3b528b No.403386

>>403369

I touched on several things here, so I don't know what you are referring to:

-Lazar Puhalo is a very controversial character in the Orthodox church. He has an interesting past that involves being ordained by a bishop in some variety of schism, himself being a part of schismatic or possibly schismatic churches, and teaching things which he has been commanded not to teach, both on the afterlife and sexual ethics if I remember correctly.

-To my knowledge there are no Orthodox saints who are firmly against young earth creationism, or at least something akin to young earth creationism. Some might play with whether or not the days of creation are 24 hours long, but there are more important issues than that in the conversation, mainly kinds of animals and death before the fall. I have yet to see any support in the Orthodox saints for the idea that death existed before the fall, which is generally needed for the idea of evolution to make sense. I have also not seen any opposition to the idea of there being kinds of animals and that animals can vary in their kinds, but that no kind can come into creation having not existed from the initial creation of animals.

-The term saint in common Orthodox terminology has certain implications. There is certainly Biblical precedent to call believers saints, but this word is also used for another purpose, that being for those who have been confirmed to the church to be in heaven and whose lives are therefore worthy of study and admiration. I very much doubt that after his history of schismatic activity and his public views on the afterlife and sexuality that he will ever be recognized by the church as a saint. I mentioned this because in my initial comment I very specifically mentioned the lack of Orthodox saints because I am very used to hearing about Origen or other writers who have not been recognized as saints by the church

> I have yet to see any support in the Orthodox saints for the idea that death existed before the fall, which is generally needed for the idea of evolution to make sense

>mainly kinds of animals and death before the fall

I haven't seen any sources either but my inferior opinion is that animals are not men. Men were made in the likeness and image of God, so animals most likely did die before the fall. It is death that passed to all man. Why? Because they were alienated from the only source of Life. Man was created mortal, since only God can be immortal, but woman and man were created to become immortal through complete unity with God. God did not, as Augustine asserts, say "If you disobey I will kill you," but rather "ye shall surely die." Why? Because being alienated from God separates one from the source of life. Being ejected from the Garden of Eden, being separated from God, is the outcome of the "fall of man" not humans having the guilt of Adam and Eve's transgression and inheriting an "Original Sin" as we are told is falsely taught. Thus, the Orthodox Christian's purpose in life is Theosis.

How to find a godly Christian wife in this day and age is probably the most discussed topic on /christian/. I though this passage would be a good reminder of what we are looking for.

Description of a Worthy Woman

10 An excellent wife, who can find?

For her worth is far above jewels.

11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,

And he will have no lack of gain.

12 She does him good and not evil

All the days of her life.

13 She looks for wool and flax

And works with her hands in delight.

14 She is like merchant ships;

She brings her food from afar.

15 She rises also while it is still night

And gives food to her household

And portions to her maidens.

16 She considers a field and buys it;

From her earnings she plants a vineyard.

17 She girds herself with strength

And makes her arms strong.

18 She senses that her gain is good;

Her lamp does not go out at night.

19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,

And her hands grasp the spindle.

20 She extends her hand to the poor,

And she stretches out her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household,

For all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She makes coverings for herself;

Her clothing is fine linen and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates,

When he sits among the elders of the land.

24 She makes linen garments and sells them,

And supplies belts to the tradesmen.

25 Strength and dignity are her clothing,

And she smiles Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Not the worst thing in the world, fam. Too many people are codependent anyway.

I have an attractive female friend (she's a prot) and she hasn't had a boyfriend yet either for the very reason I just listed. She also just likes having fun with her friends. She's 21.

When I read about Sodom and Gomorrah I envision two progressive cities full of sjws. I envision the angry mob that was about to break down Lot's door as a mob of crazy sjws.

I think to be a reprobate is to be a leftist, the further to the left you are, the more reprobated you are.

I don't necessarily think being a satanist edgelord is to be reprobated like some think because these tend to convert at some point by the grace of God as if He led those people down that dark path to show them the devil before showing Himself to them but I've never seen a conversion story some of "gender queer" snowflake converting to Christianity. They go to their grave being weird like that.

What do you think?

a22db0 No.403467

Most of these SJWs, commies, liberals, progressives,etc are very young now and the way these movements are manifesting themselves is still new. Everything changes when you become a real adult.

They reap what they sow. Some will kneel down and cry, some will even commit suicide and some will die ignorant, or perhaps they will regret it in the their deathbed if they even have that honor. I pity the world 30 years from now.

With God everything is possible and He is still in control. We have to show and convince them to leave that their fake religion is a replacement of the real thing and to come home. A lot of them are brainwashed since they were kids and don't even know it though no fault of their own.

Where do you guys draw your faith from?

I used to be a devout follower but when i got a little older i lost my faith due to various reasons. Though i fell out of the routine of praying and going to church ive tried to live my life well. Im abstaining till marrige, i dont lie, etc. However latley ive had the inexplecible urge to start going back to church. So now im curious as to where others draw their faith and maybe if theres a way to reclaim mine. Sorry if this has been disscussed before, first time posting here.

Consider online lectures by Fulton Sheen, Peter Kreeft and Edward Fesser. Also look up "The Last Superstition", "Theology for Beginners" and "Mere Christianity" to help you understand the Christian faith better

Strangely enough, my disgust with modern society's values made me very devout with limitless faith. Though at times my "Limitless Faith" might just be excess righteous indignation; it's getting harder to tell nowadays.

The grace I've received in all the shit I've been through.

A host of personal experiences and quiet observations.

The alignment of Christian doctrine with whatever is just, worthy, lovely, commendable, excellent, and worthy of praise.

A sincere sense of being loved.

No one actually identifies as racist. It's a communist term made up in the Soviet Union. Stop falling for liberation theology. There is absolutely nothing wrong or sinful in protecting your homeland and preventing the genocide of your people so long as you do so without hatred.

God also believes in nations. The last time humanity tried to globalize, he stopped it.

While it is true that every major wave of immigration was met with hesitation and sometimes downright fear, can we at least agree that each major wave of immigration had their good points and bad points, and that mass immigration of any kind is usually an immediate, and sometimes long term detriment to a society? While obviously, a migration of mostly Catholic Mexican migrants is better for the moral fabric of American society than most other alternatives, the unfortunate fact of the matter is, we still struggle to integrate them into American society.

Similar things have happened with all major migrations of people to the US: The largely protestant and Anglican ways of life for early citizens were slowly erroded away as more Scots-Irish immigrants came into the country. Similarly, part of the reason that there was nervousness over the immigration of the then Prussians (Germans), was due to many different factors (that I don't know enough about to try and list them intelligently). To add, you mentioned the massive influx of Chinese immigrants. This, by far, was the most impossible of the 3 waves, due to larger cultural differences, to handle. However, within 2-3 generations, these citizens were naturalized, and by far reaped the best long term benefits.

I guess what I'm trying to say, is that if there was not such a culture that we have now, encouraging immigrants, migrants, and illegals to NOT mesh with the culture they are entering into; then you know, I'd be a little more ok with it. But to live in such a world as we do now, is more of a stretch than ever before.

The Lord asked us to be discerning, not be doormats to let others walk all over us. (Matthew 10:16)

>my whole family is atheist and they shit on christian values

>my best friend as well

>gf is a lukewarm christian, sees nothing bad in homosexuality, sex before marriage etc. doesn't even go to church

How do I deal with the fact that even if I go to heaven (I'm not sure I will, no one is), all people I love will go to hell? This is too much for me tbh

>inb4 convert them

I don't think to understand. Your example, which is led by morals instead of hedonism, is a bad fruit for them. They will squirm and spit on what your example represents

Pray for them. Also do some research on signs of demonic influence, it is very likely that they have dark forces at work which influence them to hold disdain for what's good and righteous, and praise what is wrong. Also do research on possession, as the signs are a lot more subtle than the movies typically portray.

Find new friends at any cost. Interact minimally and cordially with family.

You're only hope for converting them is prayer and becoming an example of Christian virtue which is painfully hard to deny.

Are there any Christians here who think Halloween is an acceptable holiday to celebrate?

If you do think it's okay to celebrate Halloween, please explain why.

>Benedict XVI thus never said anything about it

Instead it is probable he said so, liberals hate Benedict XVI, they removed him from his holy role in hate of the Truth.

The enemies of Christ are pushing for intoxicating you with the gifts of the world, halloween is just one of the many issues going on with cultural catholics.

Believe in Him, whose power is unlimited and Dominion extends on everything, not in spiderman.

Dude, you're starting to sound like Jack Chick, not everything is Satan man. Also, you're now lying about the infallible word of the pope because it didn't support you, think about what you're doing man.
