But it didn't, it wasn't a world war, only Japan and China. It's a world war only when several great powers get involved on either side, which didn't happen before Hitler's invasion of Poland in September 39. The Sino-Japanese War got absorbed into WW2, not the other way around.

Not a muslim but I don't think it's fair to misrepresent other people's faiths like that. I've head that you can only lie in order to save your life or to save another persons life or if you're in the minority and your faith is under persecution and saying you're muslim might cause you to lose your life.

But before you go all paranoid just know that most muslims don't know what takqiya is. (sorry if i misspelt that.)

They believe God the Father is the God over all. And Jesus is another God of this world (YHWH). They're essentially polytheistic, but beat around the bush. It's even more apparent though once you take everyone else "graduating into gods" into account.

I don't think about them much at all. I respect that they work ardently to protect their community from the cultural rebels, but their leadership is so isolated it's incapable of adapting to the encroaching problem any better than Christian leadership has.

> And do they even count as christians?

No, but they've all civil right to call themselves whatever they please.

> I've heard that there are different mormons out there. For example LDS, Community of Christ, FLDS… What's the difference between them?

The ways in which they adhere to their man made faith's spawning ideology, I suppose. I honestly don't know. I've not spent anytime examining them or their faith.

Recent Catholic convert here. Throughout my reading of Christian literature it promises me peace and that turning from Sin will make me happy. No matter how much I try to turn from sin, I don't feel peace of mind whatsoever, in fact I become depressed and then end up going back to sin. I have no problem believing in God and in everything. Perhaps it is Satans doing, it probably is but it is powerful, I become miserable and unhappy, my heart sinks, it becomes such a heavy weight.

Is this a test?

As another anon already pointed out, God gave you 10 fingers for this express purpose. But, imo, a better alternative to even that exists.

If you have a smart phone, download the Laudate app. Not only does it have a virtual rosary that will teach you and guide you how to pray the rosary, it also contains a plethora of other things like: prayers, chaplets, bibles, vatican documents, etc.

I highly recommend it.

>i feel weird buying a rosary from a corporation

Im sure your church will a couple just lying around. Buy one from there or ChurchMilitant.com or >>800231

If anything, you should be supporting a company that sells rosaries, because there is very good chance that you are supporting a good christian help support his/her family.

Remember, the physical rosary it's self is nothing more than a tool, a weapon agianst sin and vice. The holiness comes from the paryer not the object itself.

This is absolutely a test.

Dispair is itself a sin. It’s a surrender to the power of sin over you and is born of a misunderestimation of God’s desire and power to forgive sin. It’s like if you wanked all over yourself and then decided not to clean up your mess so you’d remember how disgusting masturbation is and how bad you should feel. Now THAT’S gross, my dude. You can conduct no good busniess in the world like that. We all fall short somewhere but clean up, admit what you did, and endevor to avoid sin and near occasion of sin. Once you have examined what brought you into that cycle and have reoriented towards grace, confess.

What will bring your heart joy is stopping any cycle of sin at any point and endeavoring by any means available to restore yourself to grace. We all have some means. There’s a whole internet with open. Turn on your porn blocker and have at it. Saints ftw.

When is it not? Consider getting yourself a rosary from cordbands.com, if ebay's offensive to your sensibilities. It's a catholic business. I got myself one of their rosaries when I was in the service and it was definitely beneficial to have.

While you're waiting on that make time to regularly attend confession and talk to your parish office secretary to make an appointment regarding getting some spiritual direction.

No.

Familiaris Consortio permitted "divorced" (pls note the quotes) people living in new relationships to partake in sacraments after swearing chastity before their parish priest. Amoris Leatitia modifies the procedure somewhat and allows the confessor to give this permission. Nothing about the theology of marriage has changed, the Pope is not a heretic.

If there was the Vulgate and a million rando translations that are probably all heretical in ways that are probably popular now, I would say Vulgate only. As it is, I say KJV only. Why even have a Bible if you can change the words around randomly so "Father" becomes "Parent" or whatever?

Why does this guy matter exactly, just because he rushed out an early TR that was later corrected by Stephanus and Beza in their TR's before the KJV translators went back to the original sources?

If these people were able to correct Erasmus, why exactly does Erasmus decision even matter? Also that story is fake as well.

Psalm 119:160

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Psalm 12:6-7

The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

Isaiah 59:21

As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.

>The Textus Receptus was an endeavor in the compilation of various manuscripts as much as later compilations were.

By "later compilations" do you mean the work of Westcott and Hort? Because they used materials that were never before seen, unlike Stephanus, Beza or the KJV translators. Everyone was very aware and familiar with the true NT and all of its words long before these individuals came on the scene.

Debating one another keeps us strong in our faith and is one way we can practice our faith. The reason so many fall into atheism is because they know little about their faith (especially cradle Catholics), are presented with purely emotion-driven atheistic arguments such as "if God real why bad thing happen", don't know how to respond, and soon fall into secularism. We need to build up one another to prevent that from happening.

Jesus is not a sacrifice for our sins as Paul said, to justify us because we are iniquity. Saying he, for us to believe in Jesus to be saved, without knowing what is belief, not even explaining what is faith (belief and faith is synonymous).

He sacrificed himself to speak a word it the mouth to be understood. And for him to be understood we need to have faith. If a true emissor say: A tree it a sunflower. We believe, but we don't believe, until it is said to us that the sunflower always show her face to the sun. And the sun goes from east to west, and this is the same it the sunflower face. But it's the same if the flower is it a tree ? Then our faith is increased and we can walk upon the sea and not fail. Do you believe in Peter walking in the sea ?

See sheep, hear this fat sheep: Belief without understanding is the you that i have showed. Your faith could be a lack of faith and in the worst case no faith, because you can't meditate upon words and go into the sea to catch fish it your boat.

There isn't a creation of a faith in the individual by histeria and self blindness to your doubts that you hide. To admit doubt is to eliminate doubt by searching refutations, knowledge. Not admitting is to carry a heavy stone that will not make you go up without help. And to admit is part of the allegory of circuncision. And you will cut the foreskin and reveal what is hidden.

And now i can begin saying: The faith in the words, works, passings, everything that emanated from Jesus, reveals himself and we can finally have faith, the faith that i explained to you in Jesus because he is his emanations and emanations are him.

He walked among men going into the sheeps, it his hands to make his miraculous work of healing and building, it his mouth to give instruction of where to eat grass to give us the right nutrients to grow, and the food to be part of us.

Then by this show of the right grass, he was being against the vanity of the Jews of the time; the hipocrisy of them, how they fast, how they prayed it the purpose of making an appearance to everyone around. The temple of his father fulPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Hey there everyone, Cathodox inquirer Anon here, I'm still an inquirer for now and fairly new to Christianity as a whole, I grew up in a non-practicing Christian family so I knew no prayers by heart when I started my journey. Initially I tried constructing a daily prayer rule of my own consisting of morning and evening prayers, that was troublesome because finding translations is hard for most of them (I would prefer to pray in my native language) but more importantly, it was a lot to memorize, I always ended up botching several ones in many places when I tried carry out my daily prayers and ultimately I ended up focusing more on my notes than on the prayers themselves.

So I picked up a prayer book recently for private usage, I went through my first daily prayer routine as slow and focused as I could, followed it best I could, tried to say the words on the pages as if they were my own, overall my morning routine took me 30 minutes which I feel is perfect, I do my best to put my heart into the words as if they were my own but I'm concerned…

We're talking of praying privately and from heart, but for now I only know the Our Father and the Jesus Prayer from heart, so I rely a lot on this prayer book, it just feels wrong but at the same time I think it's the best I can do for now.

What should I do to address this, just pray by the book's daily prayer rule or try to memorize it all?

How do you manage your private prayers /christian/? Do you rely on a prayer book, have a personal daily prayer rule that is well put together and you also know it by heart, maybe something else?

Is your meme implying that the Turks are good for massacring Christians?

Are you a Marcionist? That's a heresy you know.

OP, read the Liturgy of the Hours. That is exactly what you need. You do not need to pray all 7 of them (or even 8), that is for Monks. Nonetheless, you can focus on Laudes and Vesperae and/or Completorium.

You can find in this link all you need for this: https://divinumofficium.com/cgi-bin/horas/officium.pl#

Another thing you can do is pray the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary https://www.baroniuspress.com/book.php?wid=56&bid=47#tab=tab-1

If that is you, OP, here are my specific recommandations.

Écoute les prières du Barroux pour avoir une idée des Laudes et Vêpres/Complies.

Tu peux trouver sur leur site d'excellents livres de prières quotidienne (le Diurnal monastique).

OP here, been using that prayers book since and I fell it's great, but I1ll take a look thank you fren.

I wasn't the French guy you were replying to though.

Right, I realized that later. You could still listen to https://www.barroux.org/fr/liturgie/ecoutez-nos-offices.html to get an idea of what the liturgy of the hours look like (in latin). The setup time takes them usually 2 to 3 minutes, so start listening then.

Knowing the full liturgy of the hours by heart takes time, as overall if you use the non censored version (modern rite) there is 150 psalms. It is possible though, and I believe studying the bible at the same time as you pray as many benefits.

The Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary though I believe can be learnt by heart relatively easily. It's the same prayers every week, so after a couple of weeks you should be set in. It has the extra advantage of having all the notes you need to sing all your prayers if you want to expand in that direction later.

If you like praying the hours in latin, there is a nice english-latin version available in Baronius press, btw.

https://www.baroniuspress.com/book.php?wid=56&bid=59#tab=tab-1

Note that this is not the monastic one (the monastic is slightly longer), this is the one hours the priest usually use. In practice, it is a little shorter than the one you can listen to in the Barroux.

I want to be a Catholic, but I'm too weak and evil. Looking at the entirety of history, religion and philosophy, everything leads to Catholicism. Catholicism is beautiful and true on a cosmic scale, the good of Christ, Mary and the saints are real and eternal. I wish I could find a place in this grand narrative, I wish I could fulfill my obligation, from which I exist for. I can't do it though, I keep failing, I also love sin, and I feel comfortable self loathing. I don't want to suffer.

No, separate apartments are not an option and we don't have local family or friends to crash with. I was going to switch parishes but I frankly never want to go through this again, being told you're not forgiven is devastating.

>I am civilly married but not sacramentally married. I am trying to get a convalidation, but I am not able/willing to move away from my wife while we wait, so the priest denied me absolution for sleeping with my partner of 10 years.

You don't need absolution for that.

>being told you're not forgiven is devastating.

Maybe ask the Lord about that?

>Well, that's exactly how Luther felt. He concluded, due to being unable to control his vices, that man can't actually 'do' anything to control them and that only God's grace can help. Hence sola fide.

Exactly. Couldn't control perpetual sin (addiction), asked the Lord Jesus Christ to help me with that and strongly believed in that He could help me. He did and now I have it under control.

>You can't just say 'I will confess to Christ' or 'Christ died for my sins so I'm saved anyway'

You can't just say, that you confess to the Lord, you actually have to do it and repent. True repentance isn't easy all, it can physically hurt for hours. And you can only desperately hope for forgiveness, there is no guarantee to get it.

How much easier it is to just going to some human priest and get absolved in one sitting.

>Yes, being a Catholic is harder than being a prot. You have to go to confession (and this is really, really not that easy) you have to observe the liturgical calendar, fasts, days of obligation, etc.

All those works in church sound pretty, though I'm wondering what kind of real relationship with the actual God do you brothers have?

>No, separate apartments are not an option and we don't have local family or friends to crash with.

Brother, when you are legally married with your wife, became one flesh and did not fornicate (sleeping with others), your marriage is legal for the Lord.

The Lord united you with your wife and it's not in the authority of some human priest to separate you:

"What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."

Mark 10:9

>I was going to switch parishes but I frankly never want to go through this again, being told you're not forgiven is devastating.

You don't need to change parishes, but you have to put more faith into God and not into your priest.

Even the Saints sin, up to seven times a day is the common saying. That is expected. But you have to go to confession and to do penance in order to correct your wrongs.

Proverbs 24:16

> for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.

1 John 1:8-10

> 8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

Sedevacantism is literally the only way to reconcile the belief that the Catholic Church is the true Church with the Second Vatican Council and subsequent papal apostasy. What doesn’t make sense to me is how anyone could be a Catholic and not be a sede. If you reject sedevacantism then you pretty much have to accept that the gates of hell prevailed against the Catholic Church and join the Orthodox Church.

Except the gates of hell has not prevailed against the church, prot. We have endured worse. And we will continue to Prevail With or Without You.

Why don't you call Eastern Orthodox as Prots? Sedevacantists believe far more of Catholic dogma than EO. I never see catholics call EO as prots but I always see them calling sedes as prots. I only see them heaping compliments and calling EO as our brothers and sisters etc etc.

It is categorically impossible that any part of the Traditions or the magisterium could go for an entire generation without getting passed down. To say that such a thing has happened is to say that the gates of hell have prevailed against the Church. Even worse, saying that the Papacy itself has failed is to say that the gates of Hell have prevailed against the rock itself. The modern sede movement isn't the first group to reject the Pope and leave the Church over disagreements with a perfectly valid council and start LARPing as the ancient Church. The last group to do such a thing called themselves Old Catholics, they left in 1870 over the Pope infallibly teaching the Immaculate Conception. Today they perform gay marriages and female ordinations. This will be the ultimate fate of the sede movement as well if they're not reconciled to Rome, because the only thing you can do once you're cut off from the Church is to get more and more heretical from there.

Lurk moar, newfriend. Eastern Schismatics get called prots as well, they just rarely make trouble and rarely give us a reason to call them prots.
