Why are atheist on the internet so aggressive and have a hive mentality? Every creationist video on Youtube is excessively down voted regardless of how good the arguments are, and in the comment section ad hominems and the same shitty atheist mantras are repeated over and over again like

>science flies you to the moon, religion flies you into buildings

>if god real why bad thing happen

and these awful comments are up voted to oblivion, they rarely make a good argument, or any argument at all.

When someone say they'll be praying for someone, or when someone who might even be a secular person says "thank god" it triggers them into making a snarky reply. They're in every Youtube video ready to down vote and make an autistic comment, on every Youtube reply they don't like like the one I just mentioned, every post on Twitter by a Christian account that doesn't involve them, everywhere online. Even music videos of Christmas music isn't safe.

I'd say atheist are to Christians on the internet as Pharisees were to Jesus (minus the crucifixion), just following him around in his life and just scoffing at him and making edgy remarks.

Why do they act like this, seriously? I'm just so tired of seeing the same case over and over again. I just can't understand their behavior as to why they're like this whatsoever. And it's surprising because of atheist specifically (and not just non-religious or unaffiliated people) make up such a small percent of the population, they make is seem like they're much larger than they really are. Does anyone have a possible explanation as to why they're like this?

It isn't religion that did that. It's Rationalism (as opposed to Empiriicism. They are NOT the same).

Sadly, the church (especially in the West, but sometimes the East with it's Gnostic heretics) attached itself to rationalism too strongly, via a fascination with Plato and Aristotle.. but it was a mistake. They have nothing to do with Christian thinking on it's own. Take it from Carl Sagan himself. Even he is fair about it, and doesn't churn out the usual highschool meme that it's "religion's fault".

Aquinas himself disavowed his own writings. And if you're willing to believe it, I experienced something probably similar to what he did. Perhaps just a dose. But even that changes and humbles you. Just like it did St. Paul, who, "was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter."

Sadly, you Thomists strangely hang on every word that the author himself didn't want you to. And then tell others to submit to them to boot. I think not. It is all but "straw", as he said. Learn now or the hard way that you shouldn't dissect the Mystery of God.

Complete nonsense, Aquinas saying that all of his writings are "like straw" compared to even a momentary glimpse of the Beatitude isn't a refutation of his own work, and nobody has ever considered it as such.

Life under ISIS led these Muslims to Christ…

"If heaven is made for ISIS and their belief," said one convert, "I would choose hell for myself instead of being again with them in the same place, even if it’s paradise."

http://archive.today/2019.02.03-153957/https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/life-under-isis-led-these-muslims-christ-n963281

Four years have passed since the Islamic State group's fighters were run out of Kobani, a strategic city on the Syrian-Turkish border, but the militants' violent and extreme interpretation of Islam has left some questioning their faith. A new church is attracting converts. It is the first local Christian place of worship for decades. “If ISIS represents Islam, I don’t want to be a Muslim anymore,” Farhad Jasim, 23, who attends the Church of the Brethren, told NBC News. “Their God is not my God.” Religious conversions are rare and taboo in Syria, with those who abandon Islam often ostracized by their families and communities. “Even under the Syrian regime before the revolution, it was strictly forbidden to change religion from Islam to Christianity or the opposite,” said Omar, 38, who serves as an administrator at the Protestant church. (He asked for his last name not to be revealed for safety reasons. The church's priest declined to be interviewed.) “Changing your religion under ISIS wasn’t even imaginable. ISIS would kill you immediately,” he added. While residents are still dealing with the emotional scars left by the brutality of ISIS, Omar says many people in Kobani have been open-minded about Christianity.

“Most of the brothers here converted or come to church as a result of what ISIS did to them and to their families,” he added. “No one is forced to convert. Our weapon is the prayer, the spreading of spirit of love, brotherhood and tolerance.” Islamic leaders around the world have spoken against the extremists' ideology, accusing the ISIS militants of hijacking their religion. In 2014, more than 100 Muslim scholars wrote an open letter to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi saPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Sigh. You guys are wrong. You just don't have much experience with real pagans is all.

What say about Varg is right, and about all these neo-pagans in general is right, they do indeed see the gods as symbols/archetypes.

There are however pagans that see it differently. There are the kind who see it literally (very rare mind you, but there's some in Iceland and Siberia like this) and there are some strains of paganism that actually deal with entities that do respond.

Also, would you count stoics and epicureans (both mentioned in the Bible) as pagan? There's lots of those still around.

I'm assuming btw you mean only European pagans and won't address the forms of paganism originating from the other continents practiced by different races.

this is not a shitpost, please hear me out.

okay, so i can't stop masturbating. i read somewhere that aquinas or someone else once said it was less of a sin to rape a woman than to masturbate or have gay sex because in that case, you're mostly sinning against the woman that you're raping instead of God Himself. when you masturbate or have gay sex. you're completely winnie the pooh up the meaning of sex that God intended, so you're directly sinning against Him. so what i'm wondering is would it be less sinful to find an old lady who isn't gonna get pregnant who i can nut inside raw and basically use as my cumdump than it is to continue fapping? yeah, its not procreative, but its still raw sex and less perverted i would say. i feel like i'm impure already anyway too. i haven't put my dick in a pussy yet, but i've still ruined myself spiritually mentally and physically and will probably never be able to pair bond properly

Fair point. I sometimes wonder what is supposed to be the gain of all this time spent on youtube apologetics. Defending the faith is great, but when we stand before Christ at judgement will he really be that concerned with how well you defended theology online? If we do not act with charity and continue to pray and remain faithful to God by acting in the way Christ taught us then we are lost. It doesn't matter how many atheists we owned online. If you are a man of faith and truly believe for a fact that heaven and hell exist and you know that every action you take on Earth will be used to judge your worthiness to enter the Kingdom then I fail to see how you could waste your time on this stuff.

The Gospel

>1 Corinthians 15:1-4__

"Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

>Romans 10:9-10__

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

Yeah, exactly, and the Christians from the book of Acts as well. So it goes from these churches directly to those who were wrongly termed "anabaptist" by people who had founded a state church. The problem these sacerdotal entities ran into is that they could never change the scriptures from their original words despite their attempts to destroy it and create a new standard. Those words of scripture stand in contradiction even to this very day to their numerous personal teachings, their attempts at wiping it out rendered useless.

I don't know an exact answer for the first two, but I can answer the third. You don't need to ask others to pray for you to be saved or anything, but does it really hurt to have someone else praying for you? It's not a requirement, but rather an option. And that option is extended to saints as well since we are all one body in christ, and the saints are alive in heaven. At least that's the argument I've heard, I'm sure I'm not doing it justice since it's been a while since I heard it.

In Genesis 32:22-32, Jacob fights with a man, whose name is not revealed. And Jacob later gives the place, where the fight has happened, the name Penuel (Face of God). It seems that the man's identity is debatable, from being a Angel to Jesus Christ. How should I interpret this passage ?

To be serious, only the Orthodox teach what the Church fathers taught. Consensus is always Orthodox. Catholics just teach what ONE taught… because he stupidly followed the Jews, who said at the time that angels were only creatures exclusively (this was because they didn't even believe in Christ and had to wipe out all reference to him.. just like they attempted everywhere else). Even his mentor St. Ambrose taught it. St. Justin Martyr (already in the 100s AD) was the first to call the OT appearances of Christ as the "Angel of Great Counsel". This eventually became the name of the Icon that has seen in many churches, starting as early as the 800s.

Which is already a ridiculous claim, because the Church Fathers contradict each other on many finer points of theology. The entire point of having an authentic Church vested with the authentic Holy Spirit is to make declarations on what is orthodox and what is heresy/heterodox.

I live in Europe.

I don't know about the USA, but in Europe, many countries (maybe all of them, didn't check) don't allow you to marry in the Church if you haven't been married in the civil. That mean that you HAVE TO marry in the civil first and that you can't marry only in the Church.

THAT'S INTOLERABLE.

What the hell? Those enlightenment atheists (((revolutionaries))) first forced us to separate the State from the Church in the name of "freedom", "equality", "individual free will" and forced us to accept that religion is a "personal matter" and not a societal structure.

Thus, marriage has to be done in the civil and in the church if people want.

THAT'S EVIL. Those revolutionaries say in one hand that the church and state HAVE to be separated in the name of "(personal) religious freedom", but then in the other hand, they FORCE you to marry in the SATANIC (((ATHEIST))) Civil State marriage (which make your whole marriage completly depend in this satanic kiked society and not depend of the Church), and then, you only get to marry in the Church for "cosmetic" reasons.

That double standard is INTOLERABLE and HYPOCRITICAL, so much for "freedom of religion".

What the hell has the Vatican been up to ? That was the HIJACKING of the foundation of society, marriages, thus families, from the graces of the Catholic Church and from the grace of God, and given in the hands of the (((Secular))) states which are Satanic kikes, kikes lovers, feminists, atheists, pagans, globalists, oligarchs, anti-christian (((marxists))),…

The Vatican, the Church and the Pope had to react to that obvious satanic subversion and they did NOTHING.

No. Civil marriage was required by the Church even before Christianity became the state religion of the Roman empire. Civil marriage has been required in the Ottoman Empire even though the (Orthodox) Church was considered an ethnic minority there.

Incidentally, that you are only fine with obligatory civil marriage if the State and Church aren't separated reeks of caesaropapism.

Either way, calm down, man. Remain obedient to your bishop. If he says you must get married by the state, get married by the state.

It really isn't defensible. Even if it is done for some charitable cause the Vicar of Christ is whoring out his position to Capitalists and materialists. I'd love to see Francis defend his approval of worldly decadence, but it'll never happen.

>Why is the pope encouraging people to lust after worldly goods such as a luxury car?

Because catholics are the biggest liars and hypocrites. You have to remember that these are people who refer to mortal men that aren't their biological father, or God, as father. These are people who edited commandments so they can worship pics and statues. These are people who welcome sodomites and pedophiles into their ranks. Disgusting pagans.

Maybe not the most Catholic way to go, but at least it’s not founding or supporting a demonic or Talmudic agenda…

Lol.

Lol what? Read the Bible again and Google veneration of Saints autist.

>These are people who welcome sodomites and pedophiles into their ranks

<The Church has sinners.

I guess Jehovah Witness are the true Church since they claim they have no sins.

Greek Orthodox bishop sentenced for inciting violence against gays…

Greek Bishop Amvrosios, whose name is Athanassios Lenis, labelled gay people the "dregs of society" and called on his followers to "spit on" and "blacken" them

http://archive.today/2019.01.28-191235/https://www.france24.com/en/20190128-greek-bishop-sentenced-inciting-violence-against-gays-report

A Greek Orthodox bishop has been sentenced on appeal to seven months in prison for inciting violence against homosexuals and abuse of his office, Greek media reported Monday. Bishop Amvrosios, whose name is Athanassios Lenis, labelled gay people the "dregs of society" and called on his followers to "spit on" and "blacken" them in a written address in 2015. The 79-year-old cleric had been charged with public incitement to violence and abuse of ecclesiastical duties, but was found not guilty and released by a court in the Peloponnesian town of Aigio in March last year.

The case was the first of its kind in Greece for a representative of the influential Orthodox church. Prosecutors appealed the original verdict to the criminal court in Aigio which handed down Monday's sentence of seven months in prison, with three months suspended. The bishop has been known to publicly appear alongside leaders of Greek neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn and his release sparked criticism from human rights groups who on Monday hailed the new verdict as a positive step in the fight against hate speech.

>You saw God as a "prime mover" who was also "yourself in the future"

>It's easy to imagine yourself to be God after that… Your second interpretation is the correct one. Just wanted to humor you on that nice trivia

Wait… I am going to become God in the future?

Because, how I perceived it to work was; God has a time machine in the form of a tipler cylinder. I, as God, used this machine to control everything, and thus produce a perfect, charmed life.

God was sexually pure - which was astonishing to me, because I was a very sexual person, and to no longer want sex was dehumanizing. I wanted to be like God - who took the form of a woman - and became obsessive about NoFap.

But God was also truthful and self-sacrificing. I felt like even if a body died, a new one could be made. So why be concerned with the mortality of a particular body? As long as beautiful female bodies existed, what I wanted was there. God became equated with women in general to me, and I was delighted to find any woman beautiful on some level.

As the feelings of godhood slowly subsided, I was left with nothing but religious mania, a belief in the afterlife, and a hope that I would be a woman there. My faith in many ways revolves around a desire for more visions.

>If you don't love your hearthly self, at least take pity and love your heavenly one, who's virtually contained inside you

It's the only thing I have hope in. I live for the promise it contains.

>So love God, love others and take care of your catterpillar self even if it's ugly, until you get inside the cocoon

I fear God and respect him, and want to love him. I can give to others, and stand with the weak against the strong. But little stirPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Why do you even want to be a woman?

I want to look like a woman. Other men look fine as men, but when I consider myself I see ugliness because I don't see a woman.

At one point, fetishism was a big motivator, but by age 25 that had mostly died off, and once I started HRT it died completely.

I don't mind acting like a man and fulling male gender roles - as long as I get to be feminine while I do it.

Why do you want to look like a woman? There's a reason there and you're avoiding it for fear of what you'll find out about yourself. God doesn't make mistakes. He made you a man. If you're committed to following Him, you need to figure out the reason as to why you want to look like a woman and not surface level stuff like "I want to be pretty". It will take some introspection and prayer.

I think it might have been because I was raised by my mother, with zero influence outside of her, and neglected by my father. She became my role model, and not looking like her makes me feel like I'm not a part of womanhood, which feels like where all the coolest people are.

>God doesn't make mistakes. He made you a man. If you're committed to following Him, you need to figure out the reason as to why you want to look like a woman and not surface level stuff like "I want to be pretty". It will take some introspection and prayer

I've thought about how it would feel to have a wife. If I had one, I'd watch her as often as she let me, and pretend to be her vicariously. I'd try to block out any self-consciousness, and be conscious of her at all times. I'd try to pretend I didn't even exist, except as a disembodied pair of hands to serve her.

My Mom told me that this wasn't normal either, so maybe I don't even know what a man is supposed to see in his wife.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam Just Called For Legalizing Murder Of Newborn Babies

https://thefederalist.com/2019/01/30/virginia-gov-ralph-northam-implies-babies-can-terminated-birth/

When asked about the controversial late term abortion bill presented in Virginia’s House of Delegates this week, Governor Ralph Northam said a fully developed child born in the third trimester would be kept alive, but the physician and mother would get to discuss and decide whether to take its life or not.

“If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and mother,” Northam said on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor” segment this morning.

The wierd part is that these are mainly a bunch of secular and reform Jews.

The only instance in the Torah that allows abortion is a slightly confusing set of verses that basically allows a man to have his wife drink something that would cause an abortion if she is accused of adultery, and if she then becomes acursed.

No free abortions or women's choice is anywhere close to the actual readings. That's why Orthodox Jews aren't fond of it.

One guy once said these Bolshevik Jews don't even practice Judaism. They practice Holocaustianity.
