I am a Protestant, but I don't get why so many evangelical types in the US are so terrified of a bit of purgatory.

St. Clement of Alexandria did not commit heresies. The claim that he did are based on commentaries of his work on the lives of the Apostles by St. Photios, whom admitted the Gnosticism therein was most likely interpolated. The 3 works of his we have that are not fragmentary meanwhile actually refute Gnosticism hand in hand. His Exhortation of the Heathens is one of the most well put together destroying of Pagans and heretics alike in Christian history. He is a Saint. You can't simply uncanonize someone.

I've mostly been exposed to stuff arguing that tollhouses are heretical, and I tend to agree with those explanations, because it does seem odd that any entity would be capable of judgement above God, and it just sounds like another form of purgatory tbqh, but then I'm left confused as to why it's been defended by so many people. I obviously haven't read too deeply into it so I don't have any strong opinions about it, but I want to know how/why this theory gained traction in the first place. Pic related is supposedly a huge tome defending the tollhouse theory for example, so I have no idea what's going on.

>Tollhouses were demons at folk stories in Greece that would try to take your soul after you die according to your sins. They also said that ravens would gather outside of the house of someone who's dying and the exact time of his death they would fly away, if they would leave quietly then his soul was safe but if they leave crowing loudly it means that his soul was taken by the tollhouses. It's like the popular belief that your life passes in front of your eyes before you die. It was probably a parable started by monks that became a folk story by the people. I've seen Americans debating them while others try to compare them with Purgatory for Christ's sake and it triggers me. It's neither a theory nor theology, it's a folk tale.

Do you have any hard evidence, via sources, of the toll houses being folk tales? Because right now, all we have is your word to go on.

For now i have the Greek article in wikipedia. You can find more stories about them in literature and academic folklore. It's an oral tradition mostly so there're no sources in other languages. Idk if other balkan countries have similar stories.

Telonio literally means toll house, it's the personification of a demon that collects the sins usually. But telonia are also another name for small demons in general. Google translate it it's not that big.

Interestingly, most of these frescoes are used for the covers for the books that are against toll houses or similar concepts. One of them is used by Kalomiros too for his book "river of fire"

I was (and still am to be honest) opposed to the concept, but I mostly think now that problem is less in the theory and more in its literal/simple minded and materialized understanding. Though in general I think that this teaching nowadays does more harm than good, considering how it affects people who are motivated not because of God but because of demons and its very culture-specific (ex: reason for why demons are described as tax-collectors, was because in ancient times they were considered to be greedy and petty subhumans. The analogy mostly flies over head in modern times) and primitive descriptions. And I dont really think that anything of value would be lost if people would stop emphasizing on it, since it also largely diverts attention from far more important concepts, such a Theosis.

Also, I found this link about it https://www.patristics.co/aerial-toll-houses/ I hope it will be of some use.

As long as the Society does not have a canonical status in the Church, its ministers do not exercise legitimate ministries in the Church.

In order to make this clear once again… the Society has no canonical status in the Church, and its ministers – even though they have been freed of the ecclesiastical penalty – do not legitimately exercise any ministry in the Church.

Again, there is a time and place for everything. The Pope is a leader of a sovereign nation trying to promote peace in the world. It would be hypocritical of the Pope to berate the muslim world of fundamentalist terrorism if he socks an imam in the face like St. Nick did to Arius.

Does violence solve problems? Yes

But violence isn't the answer to all of the world's problems. Showing them compassion is literally what Jesus taught us to do and when we are confronted with our enemies. For compassion can soften a hard heart more than bullets can.

If you can show me concrete proof that Francis has halted evangelization in the ME I will become a protestant like you, but until than no Christian faithful will take you or the SSPX seriously.

Hello guys, today i read the gospel of Luke and felt very inspird to make an manga about it. I know it sounds like an extremely silly idea, but i think it may be a good way to convey the gospel through imagery. I know there are probably better ways to represent the gospel with art, but i think this might be valid. I was planning to tell the gospel of Luke with no additions or commentaries, what do you guys think? would you promote it if the final product was good? I'm an amateur artist, but i would give my best. Pic related is a little sketch i made of Christ and St. Peter. It could be good for attracting young people and the japanese without dumbing down the message and the gospel.

You don't have a winnie the pooh clue. PUAs just paint a target on their back, but there are people who are 100 times worse than them in corrupting women, think of the bankster elites, show biz, eyes wide shut, etc. They promise young women careers/money and then just pump and dump them, rinse and repeat as often as you like. PUAs are just regular guys who didn't want to be on the losing end of the dating game, and sure you can fault them for not having enough regard for women, but who has any regard for anyone in today's Jewish capitalistic society? I don't even think PU is harmful in itself - certainly it would be beneficial to know how to court your future wife, but it becomes harmful like everything else does when applied in this rotten society. As the PUA motto goes "don't hate their player, hate the game", and it has quite some truth; although the more people play the harder it is to destroy the game.

Rain has come, silence the voice of the pavement.

Dripping amongst potted things

dripping amongst the weeds

wiping away the gone away day.

Washing the sin from the stone

washing troubles to storm drains.

Be silent, quiet syncopated by tears from above,

angels water the gardens, holy holy holy.

angels watering the world.

Stain this scene with streetlights,

weak light against starlight.

Feeling the cool to come, feeling the lips of the clouds.

Feeling lips from the water.

Wash away the people, sleeping in houses.

Wash away the shadow of lies in alleyways.

Does the end redeem? in the end, do we wash clean?

Not specifically relationship advice, for those have specific threads, but to come with analysis and understanding, and interpretation of the bible regarding them.

Something I would valuable not only for young men, but to settled men who wish to understand their partners better, and even women themselves to understand their inner feminine essence.

I agree, the early feminist movement wasn't about stopping women being raped en masse, as that didn't happen, it was more about demanding suffrage.

The marriage of man and woman is like the marriage of Christ and his Church. I think that's from Paul. They are not equal partners, that's heretical.

Society had many protections for women prior to first wave feminism.

Truth. Jezebel was a femenist, but satan as always was the first.

I was reading about the prophecy of Jesus about the temple..He said that the temple and the city would be destroyed and that the jews would be scattered among the nations. There is also a prophetic paralel with Jonah. Jonah preached to nineveh that if they didn't repent, the city would be destroyed in 40 days. Jonah also spent 3 days and 3 nights in a fish's belly. Jesus said that if they didn't repent, the city would be destroyed and they would be punished. Jesus spent 3 days and 3 nights in the heart of the earth. But the jews didn't repent, they killed Jesus and their city was destroyed…in exactly 40 years.Even emperor titus (the emperor at the time ) refused to receive honors as he was merely following the commands of a deity, as a vessel for divine wrath. How can atheists and non-believers still refuse to convert after this? What are their mental gymnastics? Do these people hate God or something? because this is too obvious and only a fool would reject Christ.

Yep that's their logic. First you presuppose that no prophecy can be true, then you find any prophecy that was true and take that very fact as proof that it must be written after.

This is how "scholarship" currently works.

Both the East and West have a history of Saints with prodigious miracles, incorruptibles, etc. How can this be possible, when the very doctrine of Grace differs in the Eastern and Western Churches? How can this be possible, when only there is only One Church that is truly Catholic and Apostolic? How does that relate with Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus? Maybe I'm just being too legalistic, I know that God looks at your heart first and foremost (1 Samuel 16:7), but this is very troubling, and in some ways reminds me of Protestant theology. (In other words, God will still give Grace to those in Churches that are outside of the True Church.) I'd like to have discussion on this matter.

Wow, look at this trashfire of a thread. To actually answer OP's question:

There have been numerous Saints that have been venerated and shared post-Schism by the Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches. Some examples include:

>Alexei Trupp, servant of St. Czar Nicholas II and his Sainted Family, who despite being a Roman Catholic at the time of his death was granted the title of Martyrdom by the ROCOR alongside the Royal Family and 3 other Servants, in 1981

>Saint Stephen of Hungary, a post-Schism Catholic Saint, was canonized by the Greek Orthodox Church in 2000

>Saint Sergius of Radonezh, a post-Schism Orthodox Saint, was canonized by the Roman Catholic Church in 1452

>All 1.5 Million Christian victims of the Armenian Genocide were canonized by the Armenian Apostolic Church, and that includes Catholics and Eastern Orthodox Martyrs as well

>The Roman Catholic Church declared the 1900s Eastern Orthodox Martyrs of the Boxer Rebellion as Catholic Martyrs as well

>Saint King Kaleb of Axum, despite being a post-Chalcedon Schism Ethiopian Saint, is venerated in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches as well

>Saint Isaac the Syrian, despite being from the Assyrian Church of the East long after their Schism from the rest of Christendom, is venerated in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches

And on and on it goes. Not to mention Eastern Catholics are allowed to venerate the Orthodox Saints of their Sister Church. You will find icons of St. Seraphim of Sarov alongside St. Francis of Assisi in a Russian Catholic Church, for example. Unfortunately the same cannot be said of Western Orthodox doing this with post-Schism Roman Catholic Saints, though I do have a book by Helene Iswolsky titled "Light Before Dusk" where she talks about how many Orthodox in France during her lifetime venerated St. Theresa of Lisieux and that she was an extremely popular Saint in Russia while she was still living.

I'd like to add something to your post, anon. Eastern Catholics also can venerate Saint Isaac the Syrian, especially in the Maronite Church, as he was a Syriac, close to us.

What denomination are you?

I think you’re trying to reduce God to a worldly entity.

It seems kids nowadays are having less sex, less drugs, less alcohol and less degenerate acts than baby boomers.

This is a global trend.

What is the opinion of anons here about this?

On the contrary, I hear that it's tapering off from its heights about a decade ago.

This. Huxley got it correct. However, a lot of young people are already taking or wish to take what some would call a Benedict option and getting out of urban centre and start a simple life if they can.
