Can we try and explore the multiple books and translations and interpretations and ideas of bibles. the only reason why I wanted to is because of these tweets, is any of this true at all or not? I don't study the bible at all and don't know whats okay or not, I just want non bias information and a discussion

here is the link they also provide source for their information, it's also not to direct hate so don't directly speak to them,

I come from a muslim family. My mother is german, and my father is turkish. They are both muslim, because my mother converted. They both believe in Islam, and don't like christianity (They think it's wrong, and that christians are having sinfull lifes).

I believe that christianity is true. But my family wouldn't accept me beeing a christian (And my mother wants me to be just like she wants me to be. She gets angry when I don't even do something wrong, and blames me for a lot of stuff. But 80% of the time she is nice and loves me)

Because of that, I have to wait till I can move out. Only then, I can convert. But I found out, that I was baptized in the Catholic Church when I was a baby. My Grandfather wanted that I am baptized.

So I wanted to ask, if I count as a Christian already, when I was baptized as baby?

My grandmother says she and my grandfather baptised me, and my parents say they did something but my Dad says it wasn't a baptism. My grandmother also lies about tons of stuff, and she said this after I told her I wanted to be baptised Catholic.

Can't a layman baptise people? If so, does this mean my grandparents baptised me?

The larger context of this debate is that if I'm not baptised, I get all my sins cleansed without confession and I'd rather not mention some things. But if I was baptised, I want to know. My brother says I just don't want to be forced to confess and says I'm baptised, and my Dad says I wasn't baptised.

Basically, my family has turned my baptism into an excuse to fight and tell each other they're wrong - I may never know the truth of whether I've been baptised.

What do I do?

Jesus Christ is the Son of God; Jesus Christ is God.

3 persons, one substance. When the Father does something, it can be attested that Christ and the Holy Spirit have shared in the act. No, the true nature of the Trinity is a mystery, and is not meant to be something grasped by pure reason alone.

God is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Think of a diamond; God is depicted as being seated on a throne of diamond many times - why is this?

Now, for those in the audience waiting to leap up and shriek about Sabellianism, we must dwell upon what differentiates the 3 persons.

*God the Father, does not have a body nor is He a Great Spirit. He is absolutely uncreated and unchanging. "I AM THE I AM", the Father is Being itself.

*God the Son, Jesus Christ, emptied Himself and took on human form, and aged, and learned, and suffered, and died, and rose again for our sake.

*God the Holy Spirit, dwells within us, justifying us and has spoken through the prophets.

Once you move out and are free to practice Christianity, go ask a local priest. He may not be able to give you an answer, but he'll direct you to someone who can. In the meanwhile, if you believe in Jesus, you're a Christian.

I'm sick and tired of answering this charge, Peter gave up this position to someone else, and Peter was the head of the Church in Rome.

If the Early Church believed as you did, then patriarchs/bishops would be able to hold two simultaneous posts, or St. Peter's Seat would have been clearly identified with BOTH Rome AND Antioch, simultaneously.

It's incredibly obvious that neither is the case, quit arguing in bad faith.

>Instead Martin associates himself with LGBT groups who openly dissent from church teaching. In October 2016, Martin received the the annual “Bridge Building Award” from New Ways Ministry. New Ways is a pro-gay-identity, pro-gay-sex, pro-gay-“marriage” group whose work has been condemned by both the Roman Curia and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

>In 1999, the Vatican condemned New Ways Ministry and put in place a permanent prohibition against Sister Jeanine Grammick working in this area of ministry. Grammick defied the restriction and the prohibition has not been withdrawn. Neither has the USCCB withdrawn its condemnation of New Ways Ministry.

>In 2010 Cardinal Francis George stated, “No one should be misled by the claim that New Ways Ministry provides an authentic interpretation of Catholic teaching and an authentic Catholic pastoral practice. Their claim to be Catholic only confuses the faithful regarding the authentic teaching and ministry of the Church with respect to persons with a homosexual inclination.”

>Should Martin - newly appointed communications guru for the Vatican - publicly support New Ways Ministry? There would be no problem if New Ways had changed their ways, but it is still openly in favor of gay identity, gay sex and gay marriage. And yet Martin acknowledges that Grammick is “one of his heroes.”

I'd like to ask you as a Christian to hold off on accusation. When I mean the Church, I mean the wider Church - me, /christian/, nearly any Catholic with a keyboard, traditionalist catholics, orthodox catholics, center catholics, right catholics, etc etc.

I'm certainly not happy that Martin hasn't been defrocked and thrown out, but he is quite clearly unpopular in the wider Church, I didn't necessarily speak of the Vatican. Contrary to what you might think, all the Church Herself isn't merely constrained to Rome, though it be the crown of the Church Herself.

>So how the hell is he not in schism?

schism means to not be in communion with the Pope or the Catholic Church, there are many heretics, or liberal modernist Catholics, or Catholics in mortal sin, or Catholics in dubious moral standing who are not guilty of schism.

look up the definition. Martin "associating" with the group, does not mean he himself is guilty of schism. there are Catholics who attend SSPX masses whom are not necessarily guilty of schism either.

German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche is quoted by saying:

>Christianity is called the religion of pity.—Pity stands in opposition to all the tonic passions that augment the energy of the feeling of aliveness: it is a depressant. A man loses power when he pities. Through pity that drain upon strength which suffering works is multiplied a thousandfold. Suffering is made contagious by pity; under certain circumstances it may lead to a total sacrifice of life and living energy—a loss out of all proportion to the magnitude of the cause (—the case of the death of the Nazarene).

However, Paul says in 2 Corinthians 12:10-11

> 10. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

> 11. I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing.

But in all honesty, I have a hard time trying to be happy. Just last week, I got straight As on all my grades; not only that but I possibly have a 4.0 GPA. The problem is I don't know who deserves the credit: me who has worked so hard on them, or God, to whom I prayed for help. It's like the "thanking God but not the doctor" scenario. Tell me brethren, is it wrong to take pride in your accomplishments or be confident in yourself?

Nietzsche was such a tool, but fairly consistent in his atheism. Of course, why pity or allow for weakness, if all that matters is wealth and money? Nietzsche is the sum total of the man that believes that peace is but the absence of war, rather than the truth of the Gospel, which affirms war to be the absence of Peace.

Now speaking of peace, my humble solution to your problem is this; thank God for the courage, the consolations, and the peace of heart that allowed you to pull off the great work. Once you have done with that, celebrate with all your heart.

Nietzsche also believed that the basis for female sexuality was first wanting to have sex with their mothers, then realising that their fathers had sex with their mothers, then wanting to have sex with their fathers, then realising that all men had penises, so any man would do.

wisdom comes from God, including the wisdom required to get good grades.

Exodus 28:3

Tell all the skilled workers to whom I have given wisdom in such matters that they are to make garments for Aaron, for his consecration, so he may serve me as priest.

But it did take your energy and effort so really it is a mix of both your energy and God's gifts and guidance. Tell me, does a boxer say that his work is merely the result of his trainer and not his own hard work? Would a boxer say it was all his hard work, but give no thanks to his trainer? Not usually; If he is being honest, his success is the result of both, and so both will receive credit, (although I would argue it is truer in a deeper sense to lean on the side of humility and give the glory to God).

There is nothing wrong with being happy for achievements, but to say "i'm better than everyone, i'm the best" causes trouble. Now this can actually be a literally true statement sometimes people are on average better than others at certain things, but deep down saying it tends to imply things that are not true, and for that reason alone you should not say it. There is a way to enjoy successes, and it is not by braggadocios statements. Not that i'm saying you're braggart, but if you're not cautious, who wouldn't do a little bragging here and there.

There is a right way to enjoy successes, when you discover and test these things you will understand - it's not stupid and it works well. One day God will help you discern it for yourself. Probably.

Also on the question of happiness. Being happy and in comfort all the time is a false, this is some western budhism new-age illusions. It is trough suffering where we grow as people, all great inventions came trough suffering. If you put a lot of effort into your live happiness wil follow, dont look for happiness because happiness is a by-product of a fulfilled and passionate live. And dont try to avoid pain and discomfort all the time, accept them as something that happens and be brave. God bless you.

Eastern Orthodoxy ALLOWS female deacons(!) This is ridiculous. All the Holy Orders should be for men only - the deaconesses in the early Church were not sacramental deacons. How can you allow this? You know the Ameridox will use this in the argument for female ordination.

In fact, American Orthodoxy is like how mainline Protestantism was ~20 years ago, before they went totally crazy. They oppose the death penalty and some have made the argument that women should be priests, I've even seen someone claim that adelphopoiesis means that homosexual marriage should be allowed.

And, sadly, like pretty much every other denomination (and, religion in general) you have bent on the issue of divorce and contraception.

Just because Boomers haven't subverted your mass, don't think you are safe…

Do I have to convert to Catholicism first? Sorry I am new to all this, I haven't set foot in a church in like 20 years. Jesus came into my life recently… I think.

You don't need to be a Catholic to do confession. If you don't believe in their Church it's not a sin for you and even in their system the preist has not sinned if he hears a confession from a non-Catholic who doesn't inform him of that fact. Just say you're from out of town but don't say you're not a Catholic. He'll assume you are one and hear your confession. As long as you aren't lying to him I don't see how it's a sin.

I'm sure according to their papist Canon law it's a mortal sin or whatever but if you don't believe in that it has no power over you. Now I'd question why you'd even want to confess to a Roman preist but I understand being a seeker and wanting to try out the rituals of different denominations to find one that works for you.

So by all means give it a try OP. Schedule a confession, don't say you're a Catholic but don't say you aren't one either, and give it a try. If that will help you in your spiritual journey of denomination discernment I see no reason not to do it.

You need to be Orthodox to do Orthodox confession, likewise with RC.

I am in the same position as a catechumen to Orthodoxy. I really need to confess and be absolved of these sins, but I can't just yet due to the procedural stuff. My advice is hold on.

Perhaps you could go to a priest and talk about the situation, even though they wouldn't be able to give you absolution or penance or anything.

If Siri was actually the Pope he would be objectively the worst Pope in history because he just hid like a coward and never tried to let his flock know that they were being deceived. If he was Pope the Novus Ordo would also definitely be invalid and he was perfectly willing to celebrate it.

That I think is the most damning part of the so-called "Siri thesis."


fa8977  No.814990

I believe it. We need only look at the example of Anacletus II. For several years he was almost universally accepted as the Pope; it took a while to figure out that the prior election of Innocent had been legitimate. From Catholic Encyclopedia, about Anacletus: "The majority of the cardinals with the Bishop of Porto, the Dean of the Sacred College, at their head, stood at his side. Almost the whole populace of Rome rallied around him. His victory seemed complete, when, shortly after, the Frangipani, abandoning what appeared to be a lost cause, went over to him." Apparently there are still some modern-day canonists who think that Anacletus had the better claim to the papacy. When the smoke clears, I fully expect it to be established that John XXIII was the "uncanonically elected pope" who would wreak havoc on the Church.

It literally says in the bible, in Genesis 7:2-

"Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals, the male and his mate, and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and his mate, and seven pairs of the birds of the heavens also, male and female, to keep their offspring alive on the face of all the earth"

So that's thirty animals in total. Obviously not a pair of each living species on Earth. So obviously it must be of the animals that are native to Noah's land.

So was the flood local? God does speak about the rainbow being a covenant with ALL life that he will never flood THE world again. If this was a global flood, there had to be countless others that God spoke to, telling them to also build a ark for the creatures native of their lands. Or was ALL and THE just being used specifically to the region and creatures where the flood happened locally? But then again, 2nd Peter 3:6 says the WORLD was deluged by water.

Also probably the strongest proof of this comes in 2 Peter 2:7, which says "But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men."

The verse clearly says that the "heavens and the earth, which are now," meaning that the world that is mentioned in 2 Peter 2:6 must come before the HEAVENS which are now.

If the very atmosphere was destroyed by the flood of Noah so that God had to make heavens again, it seems hard to understand how anyone survived. How were birds of Noah flying around in the aftermath if the heavens were destroyed. This is why ruin and reconstruction is the only sensible framework, and not standard flood geology.

Oh no anon.

Look, I get it, the Bible is different from what we would call history today, the OT describes the origins of Christ with greater clarity than it describes what we would consider history, but don't push it that far or you'll not be a Christian, you'll be an anthropologist.

>can you elaborate or map it out step by step to help me understand what you're talking about?

Pretty much what I said here >>814299 is the elaboration. After Noah's flood, God made an unconditional covenant that he wouldn't flood the earth to cut off all flesh, nor to destroy the earth anymore. This is because there was an earlier flood that occurred before Genesis 1:2 which destroyed the world that then was, and this is also what 2 Peter 2:6, as you quoted, is talking about. The flood that Noah rode out on the ark happened later and it involved destroying all the descendants of Adam except himself, his three sons and their wives. This is different in the sense that it didn't completely kill absolutely everything or destroy the atmosphere as the first flood did. And after this, God then promised not to do any more floodings like these two.

Not sure how I could make it simpler than this.

It implies that there was a world in existence in the time between when God created everything in Genesis 1:1 and the time when it was flooded and lifeless in Genesis 1:2. There's more reason to believe this besides making sense of the flood account, but this is a logical place to start. You just have to read specifically what God said in Genesis 9:11 and realize it's referring to two separate events. The part about destroying the earth is the earlier flood.

Should it be led by educated laypeople this time or can a proposal made for another office to be established?

In the past both an informal position of the inquisition led by laypeople as well as by an office when one was established existed.

It served to guard the Catholic Church''s interior from subversion and heretical activity.

Investigators were sometimes dispatched to parishes in order to catch heretics/subversives including if it was the priest of a parish who was involved in it. They collected evidence and witnesses then trialed those involved.

Why not create another inquisition that does the same? Except this time it serves to operate secretively in finding and catching homosexual infiltrators in the priesthood by collecting the evidence needed, similar to how private investigators might do so or a ministry of internal affairs within a country.

The reason why it was not as much of a problem once upon a time is because the inquisition's exact job was to stop things like this. They spied on or investigated priests suspected to be engaged in heretical activity.

The Church has been vulnerable to infiltration and subversion by forces such as these homosexual pedophile priests ever since the inquisition was dismantled.

Realized I put a typo. I meant abortion at 8+ months. Like third trimester abortions.

Looking at Wikipedia's page on people excommunicated, it looks like people have been excommunicated for preaching same sex marriage. And some laypeople in Nebraska were excommunicated for being pro-abortion.

We need an inquisition that can collect evidence, witnesses and etc to convict him with the powers to excommunicate.

When the inquisition existed they sometimes even investigated by being undercover or through hidden means. It worked really well in defending the church from gay pedophiles and also from subversion.

Removal of the inquisition disarmed the church. Just remake it again as a sort of private investigation agency by either laypeople or as an office once again under the Holy See.

This. Heavy emphasis on it being "secretive", as otherwise modernists will do everything in their power to derail investigations into homosexual priests. Clergy should not be involved (even if they're Bishop Williamson-tier). Boomer women should not be informed either, given their tendency to form cliques and gossip. Inquisition 2.0 really should be limited to trustworthy individuals with a good reputation in their Church community and no social media presence.

Alabama abortion ban passes overwhelmingly with no changes

By Mike Cason

Alabama lawmakers aiming to challenge abortion rights nationally are one step from their goal of putting an almost total ban on the procedure into state law.

The Senate tonight voted 25-6 to pass a bill to make it a felony for a doctor to perform an abortion. The bill is a priority for the Legislature’s Republican majority. Tonight’s vote sends it to Republican Gov. Kay Ivey, who could sign it into law.

Lori Jhons, Ivey’s deputy press secretary, said in an email tonight that Ivey would not comment on the bill until she’s had a chance to thoroughly review it.

The bill passed exactly as it was introduced by Rep. Terri Collins, R-Decatur, about six weeks ago. It includes only one exception – to allow abortions in cases of a serious health risk to the woman. The goal is to trigger a legal challenge to Roe v. Wade.

“I would say that we’re all very pleased to have this done,” Collins said at a press conference after the vote. “We’re excited about the possibilities that it could mean. It’s been difficult at times, and then at times it’s been really good. I felt really good about it all the way through.”

Under the bill, a woman receiving an abortion would not be criminally liable. The doctor would be charged with a Class A felony, punishable by 10 to 99 years in prison.

The bill passed the Senate on party lines after four and a half hours of debate, with all the Republicans who were present voting for it. No Democrats voted for the bill.

With Republicans holding 27 of 35 Senate seats, passage of the bill was not in doubt. A key question was whether the Senate would add an amendment to allow abortions for pregnancies caused by rape or incest.

Sen. Clyde Chambliss, R-Prattville, who handled the bill in the Senate, urged his colleagues tPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I can only say this is true for the political and business class in some states. Namely the northeast and western red states. Take someone like Mitt Romney or the Cheneys, who proport themselves as "conservative". Now, of course, there is a concerted effort to transform areas politically, especially places that are opposed to modernity. But yeah, in places that are big and on the coasts, support for modernity is the norm.

A lot of people are coming to the inescapable conclusion that the state of the modern west is because people rejecting God in favor of their own desires. More and more people are coming back to traditional Christianity as a way of retaining good cultural values in a zeitgeist that attacks anything that disallows them from exercising their own disordered passions.

Is there a hope? A chance? Can Christianity overcome the depraved secular west?

Sorry, but you are not convincing me; 99.9% of Western people, many of whom happen to identify as Christians, would call that racist. As for the anti-white ideas, I have heard mostly left leaning persons, some of whom are Christians.

As for the whole “anti-white”…it is something I can’t believe: we Italians never identified as white, only as Italians and that saved us from assimilation from other nearby Countries (many of whom were European people); Europe was and is not a monolithic identity, and I never found a definition of whiteness and its attributes which satisfied my people or me. And most Italians do not see themselves as white, like I wrote for myself, but as Italians, and specifically:

Aostani

Lombardi

Piemontesi

Friulani

Trentini

Veneti

Emiliani

Romagnoli

Liguri

Toscani

etc…because that’s our core identity: part of Europe, part of Italy, belonging to a region and a city or village. Please, don’t misunderstand me… I’m afraid for the survival of all the people of Europe and I agree many of our religious leaders failed us. But there are also many silent ones who are on our side, and they are speaking to their little flocks and encouraging them to resist this decadent and corrupting fads.

I’m coming to you from a different background, so I have my biases on many topics; I just have done my thinking and I’m a firm believer true Christian faith, not the watered down version which is often shown but which is not the actual majority, is one of the core pillars, together with love of family and of Country, which shall save us.

I’m not here to say you haven’t understood, or that I’m smarter; I am earnestly trying to make you understand why I still hold hope in the Christ. And at least I shall die knowing I was siding with the Eternal Truth.

Because there's no canon against it(there is against religiously mixed marriages, though).

Keeping one's country demographically stable is a "side-effect' of them staying true to God, though.

objectively speaking the whole vid was pretty cringe tbh, 'the left this! the left that! cultural marxism smh! life was better back in the day when i wasn't alive! the left smh again!' Not saying he's wrong in his judgements but for a 'rediscovering Christanity' vid he couldn't have made it any larpier. There was no confession of sin or acknowledging his own sinfulness and the resulting humility or inward contemplation, just finger pointing and blaming and pining for based trad times to ensure western civ's rescue as the priority. Said he didn't know if there was an afterlife, although later may imply belief/hope for universalism, refrained from calling God by personal pronoun and instead referred to him as a 'higher power,' seemed to imply he may understand salvation as being works based, but that may just be a cynical reading of his poorly chosen words. Idk if he's read the NT and knows about the eshcaton but vid sucked ass imo 4/10. also, God pill and not bread pill, come on I hope he comes around to clearer thinking on it all.

Do Catholics still believe there is no salvation outside the Catholic Church? If they do, then wouldn't Catholics and other Christians have irreconcilable differences, just like the JW and Mormons with the rest of the Christian community?
