No offence lads, obviously there's a lot more to denominations than something this superficial but it seems so basic to me that the Church that came first has to be the rightful one.

At first glance I would say there are only two potential apostolic branches, the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church, prior to them Christianity has been united so it's natural to conclude that when two Churches came out of The Great Schism that seperated Christendom, one of them has to be legitimate, simple as that.

And to decide which one is legitimate one needs to look into the scripture, study holy tradition, the doctrines/teachings of both Churches, read the Church Fathers etc and then I think one can make an informed decision on their own on which they deem to be legitimate.

So then what is the draw to Protestant denominations who are all clearly material reactionary developments of their time?

I believe philosophy refines itself with time, and that the church exists as a philosophical front for the spiritual/metaphysical.


ddb19e  No.788571

>>788567

If it was so philosophical, St. Paul wouldn't have outright called the Gospel "foolishness" to the world.

"For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe."

It didn't even attempt to answer philosophy until the times of Sts. Irenaeus and Justin Martyr when they finally gave a defense to the Hellenic/Roman outsiders who had written off Christianity as a religion for housewives and slaves. And those who outright attempted to merge philosophy got the boot and are forever considered heretics (Marcion, Origen, etc).

The Church Jesus built is certainly transformative and powerful and changes society for the better.. but it's never been for Platonic or Far Eastern notions of enlightenment. And the least in it's kingdom are in fact the greatest.


ca9b05  No.788585

>>788571

Your interpretation is debatable, St. Paul is calling preaching to pagans and the like a sort of "foolishness", not the Gospel itself, nor the teachings or traditions contained within and without through the Church.

>It didn't even attempt to answer philosophy

Nonsense, as St. Paul told the Areopagites, God did in fact wink at them, and God's work is empirical to a certain degree. But no philosopher arrived at the Truth, which is only available through the Son. Philosophy through the revelation of God is more than biblical.

>And those who outright attempted to merge philosophy got the boot and are forever considered heretics (Marcion, Origen, etc)

>I don't think hating myself is a sin if the hate is well deserved.

Well, that's the thing. It IS a sin, because it's never deserved. We are God's creation, made in his image, How could self-destruction ever make sense given that? Jesus himself says on numerous occasions, that our own self judgement is one of the biggest barriers keeping us from reaching the kingdom of God. He accepts the lowest of the low (murderers, rapists, prostitutes, etc) just as much as he accepts the Saints, so what makes you think you're so special that you don't deserve any self respect?

If you feel you're a burden on your family, either they're the sinners in the wrong for making you feel that way, or you're misinterpreting your own situation to make it seem worse than it actually is. Instead of feeling like a burden, you should acknowledge how generous God is for providing you a family that's supporting you, even when even you don't see your own value. And don't forget that God's plan is never just about you, it's about everyone. Your purpose in being here may just be for the sake of having your family support you, and here you are thinking about screwing God's plan up for them.

Keep in mind OP, it is possible that God could bless you with a peaceful passing in your sleep if you live to a healthy old age. If instead you abuse your body, you will most likely die a slow, agonizing death, which will only increase the burden on your family.

I believe you would benefit from a hardworking job doing manual labor. You would also benefit from increased prayer, spiritual reading, and reflection, as would we all.

I hear everyone on here always pissing and moaning over "Rabbinic Judaism" and the Talmud. But have you guys actually ever read the Talmud? I'm not defending it or anything and it does contain some blasphemous stuff about Jesus and Mary but really other than that all it is is a bunch of Rabbis debating over how to interpret the law of Moses and also how the law was practiced in the time of Jesus. For example, it tells us that the Passover lambs were slain at 12:30 PM (half past the 6th hour) if Passover began on the Sabbath It also tells us how to Sanhedrin worked and stuff. A lot of is pretty harmless so what's the fuss? How is Rabbinic Judaism different from ancient Judaism minus the Temple? I am genuinely curious.

How the hell is raising your hands in the air and getting all emotional for like an hour while a guy screams verses out of the Bible worship? There is no cult, no sacrifice, no priests or liturgy, no prayers to follow along to, no chanting of psalms. Do you think the priests in the Temple back in the days of Solomon were doing this? Do you think the early Christians were doing this when they gathered for the Eucharist? Seriously Protestants, especially of the charismatic type, baffle me.

So there's nothing intrinsic in Ephesians 2 that made you reach your conclusion, but you're attempting to fit this in with a doctrine you find elsewhere. That is a valid line of reasoning.

You reconcile James 2 "a man is justified by works" and Ephesians 2 "through faith, not of works" by identifying several justifications. Is that accurate?

It is good for a true Christian to earn money, the more he earns the less it comes to the hands of evil.

But do not just give that money you earned back to the evil, all those "charity organizations".

They bring us problems, and they are actually doing more to destroy the ones you think they would try to help.

Do you think you do good if you send bread to Africa? A food we don't eat for any value it has but just to fill the parts of our bellies not already filled with pork liver and chicken-breasts?

If you want to spend your money somewhere, spend it to the local church. That will put a house of god one day more away from being demolished by some godless mayor. That will also help them furnishing the Church so it may become a little bit more beautiful of all the churches that are there. It may also help the Church helping the poor and needy of your home.

Read the full 59a.

The other rabbis immediately disagreed, and their responses went from "Gentiles doing Torah study is awesome" to "a gentile that does that is holier than a high priest".

>The Gemara raises an objection to Rabbi Yoḥanan’s statement from a baraita: Rabbi Meir would say: From where is it derived that even a gentile who engages in Torah study is considered like a High Priest? It is derived from that which is stated: “You shall therefore keep My statutes and My ordinances, which if a man does he shall live by them” (Leviticus 18:5). The phrase: Which if priests, Levites, and Israelites do they shall live by them, is not stated, but rather: “A man,” which indicates mankind in general. You have therefore learned that even a gentile who engages in Torah study is considered like a High Priest.

>The Gemara answers: There, in the baraita, the reference is to a gentile who engages in the study of their seven mitzvot. It is a mitzva for a gentile to study the halakhot that pertain to the seven Noahide mitzvot, and when he does so he is highly regarded.

The rabbi got counter objected and got told that Gentiles can only study stuff that got to do with Noahide Laws then after that they just went arguing what applies to both groups and what applies to Jews only.

Nagalanders were animists, not hindus.

Animists are usually easy-picking for monotheistic faiths, be they cathortodox, evangelical missionaries, or Islam(Buddhists are also easier to convert).

When you start competing with a religion that was actually there for a long time and has a developed canon, and/or one of the above mentioned monotheists, it gets tense, and it grows very slowly, unless a miracle happens, or you go full "Convert or die, infidel!", which isn't exactly the best strategy from a spiritual or PR point-of-view.

For in Jeremiah we see that the Messiah will be called Yahweh our righteousness:

Jeremiah 23:5-6 "Behold, the days come, says the Lord, that I will raise up a righteous seed for David; he shall reign as king and prosper, and shall do justice and equity in the land. In his time Judah shall be saved, Israel shall have security in his house; and this is the name of it: The Lord[yahweh in the original Hebrew] our justice."

so not the bible then huh

Do you see how the Roman tradition stands to gain from such a claim?

the only death the Bible covers is St. Stephen, that's not a really rational judgement on your part.

I could say America isn't in the Bible, thus America doesn't exist! or any other number of silly things

you shouldn't pay so much attention to someone flinging reviling banter, but the point still stands, St. Peter really did get executed in Rome.

I know lust is a sin, but however I don't understand why masturbating to porn is looked down by God.

I'm looking for a serious explanation.

I'm just ignorant on the bible and would love a serious explanation on why lust and porn is a sin.

Fapping doesn't make you happy. It makes you apathetic, tired, uninspired and depressed. It also makes you feel condemned of course.

Aquinas says wet dreams are not sinful, even if they are brought on by erotic dreams, as they happen when a man is robbed of reason. However, they may be caused by sinful actions. If you're having wet dreams because you're looking at porn and having sexual fantasies, that is bad, but it will occasionally happen, regardless.

If you're trying to go on nofap, consider it progress. You consciously refrained from fapping for so long that your body had to sneak one in on you while you slept.

Are Easter eggs and the Easter bunny pagan?

You can thank Martin "Jesus fornicated with Mary Magdalene" Luther for you thinking that.

Not my fault you hate Jesus and His Church.

How could it be anything but hogwash? It's only called Easter in English. In latin, the language of the Catholic Church until V2, it's Pascha (which in turn derives from aramaic then hebrew pesach for passover)

Short version:

Easter eggs come from the fact that chickens lay eggs over Lent, but Catholics don't (or at least didn't) eat them until Lent ended…on Easter…when they would have a ton of eggs just laying around.

The Easter bunny has various origin theories, with the most likely one being that hares come out of their holes in spring…around Easter.

Bonus round:

Easter is called Pascha or some variation thereof in every European language except English, so there's no way the word came from 'Ishtar,' a Babylonian goddess whose worship died out centuries before Christ was born (some people are really retarded). Easter is named after Eostre-monath, monath being old English for 'month,' Eostre-monath being the month Easter was in. Eostre being a goddess is nothing but a guess made by a monk in the 9th(?) century.

Also, Halloween isn't pagan. Pretty much everything people peg on the pagans is from medieval Catholicism (except Jack-o-Lanterns).

Most of the idiocy of Christian holidays being pagan comes from anti-Catholic pamphlet written by an American Protestant in 19th century America (as an American Protestant, I disavow) in an effort to have the Catholic calendar purged.

"For neither does any of us set himself up as a bishop of bishops, nor by tyrannical terror does any compel his colleague to the necessity of obedience; since every bishop, according to the allowance of his liberty and power, has his own proper right of judgment, and can no more be judged by another than he himself can judge another" - St Cyprian at the Council of Carthage

So you didn't read the link you responded to I gather. The point was that the entire concept of an earthly primacy existing in the church makes no sense, and was only put forward to justify a new interpretation of the universal church that Romans (like Cyprian) were advocating for political reasons. Prior to this politically motivated interpretation of the church, there was no such concept as primacy, period. Nevermind the primacy of Peter (who just so happened to be a convenient figure to fill the new theoretical role this church interpretation required), nor the Papacy. The way the office of the papacy historically originated is literally backwards from how Catholics argue to justify it.

>but why should we believe that Augustine was in error and Cyprian was not?

who said he wasn't? You're literally just seeing what you want to see at this point, because neither my comment, nor the link you responded to (which you clearly didn't read) defended anything Cyprian said. Once again, the entire concept of the primacy was devised with the explicit purpose of granting Rome more power.

The title of "Pope" might've been around for a while, but the powers that come with the office of the Papacy are certainly a much more recent creation:
