Is this Christian right to be so angry and upset at homosexuality?

I mean, he looks REALLY angry to know that his mayor is a homosexual faggot.

Isn't this a little excessive or is his rage totally legitimate and moderate?

I was born in the early 80s. I didn't even know homosexuality existed when I was a kid. I would hear it used as an insult, but I didn't think it even existed. I learned that it existed through the Internet. I made an online friend in a video game chat, and he told me he was bisexual. I didn't understand why anyone would do that. I thought it was morally wrong, even though I wasn't very religious. I had a friend in high school who came out, and I thought it was gross, but he was still my friend.

In college, I was around a lot more people who were openly gay. I thought if you don't act obnoxiously flamboyant but are gay, then why does it matter? I thought they were just 2% of the population, so what was the big deal. I had developed a more libertarian attitude to deal with the world. I didn't even buy the whole born this way argument. I think sometimes it has a biological component, but it always has an environmental or learned component. There's always a distortion that occurs. I thought it telling how gay activists never accepted ex-gay people. They didn't get a letter in the acronym.

I had been very depressed, mainly due to growing up in an extremely violent home… occurring more days than not. I thought my parents were literally going to murder each other, or even me. I was really skinny and effeminate, mainly because I thought if you were like a girl, you would be OK because you weren't supposed to hit girls. It doesn't make sense, but this was the only survival mechanism my small child brain could develop. I wasn't transgender because I didn't even knew that existed. Recently, I heard a story of a women who spent several years pretending to be a man, but through therapy she realized it was because she had been repeatedly raped as a child, and her child brain reasoned if she did not have a vagina, she could not be harmed. When a child is put in a terrifying situation like that, the conscious part of the child is struggling to survive and will distort to do so.

I was so depressed, having been rejected by a woman I loved dearly and spent 3 years with. I went through a period of unemployment before going back to school and working multiple jobs. In school I was suicidal. I was completely alone, or so I thought. I had stoPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Not all killing is vengeance. If someone aka a pedophile is trying to push their trans nonsense on children, a Christian imperium would have them killed not as an act of vengeance but necessity. Justinian's Code. It's a difficult issue and I'm not sure where I land but I've heard good arguments from both sides.

>Caesar’s Messiah is a 2005 book by Joseph Atwill, which argues that the New Testament Gospels were written as wartime propaganda by scholars connected to the Roman imperial court of the Flavian emperors: Vespasian, Titus and Domitian. According to Atwill, their primary purpose in creating the religion was to control the spread of Judaism and moderate its political virulence. The Jewish nationalist Zealots had been defeated in the First Jewish–Roman War of 70 AD, but Judaism remained an influential movement throughout the Mediterranean region. Atwill argues that the biblical character Jesus Christ is a typological representation of the Roman Emperor Titus

>The Christ myth theory is a fringe theory, supported by few tenured or emeritus specialists in biblical criticism or cognate disciplines. It is criticised for its outdated reliance on comparisons between mythologies, and deviates from the mainstream historical view.

Practically no other atheistic scholars take these goofs seriously, to the point of even Bart D. Errorman ripping into Atwill . He's not as much of a kook as Dorothy Milne Murdock/Acharya S, but that's hardly a high bar to clear.

Seriously, look her up, her 'theories' are hilarious.

The historicity of Christ was a legitimate discussion in the mid-18th and 19th centuries, and was eventually resolved in the favour of the truth we'd already held. All that's left is the atheist equivalent to flat earthers doing a better impression of the 'obstinate fanatic who refuses to accept reality' than we ever could.

Guys Sophia means Wisdon in Greek. It's referring to God's wisdom. The whole term is "Hagia tou Theou Sophia" wich translates to the Holy Wisdom of God. It's not Mary neither Christ.

Sophia is a very prominent figure in Gnosticism, which is why I've read that at some point the veneration of Sophia was downplayed because of its associations with Gnostic cults. However yeah there is some mystery over what Sophia is, since it is always referred to as she/feminine - however the Word of God (Christ) is referred to by many Saints as the Wisdom of God - however I don't think that Jesus is Sophia, since like people said in scripture it's said that Sophia is created.

357bbc  No.788737


Sophia in Christianity is not a distinct figure but the Greek word for God's wisdom. It couldn't ever be downplayed because we can't do something like that. The most famous Christian church ever was dedicated to the wisdom of God. It's a feminine word in Greek that's why she's referred as such. No it's not Jesus.

Wisdom is a property and one of the Chief gifts of the Holy Spirit, not a person with a male/female sex, nor identified as the Holy Spirit Himself, which IS identified as the masculine because it is the same One God along with the Father and the Son.

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


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


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.

>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.

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.

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?

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.

>And Rabbi Yoḥanan says: A gentile who engages in Torah study is liable to receive the death penalty; as it is stated: “Moses commanded us a law [torah], an inheritance of the congregation of Jacob” (Deuteronomy 33:4), indicating that it is an inheritance for us, and not for them.- Sanhedrin 59a

>Fight against those People of the Book who have no faith in God or the Day of Judgment, who do not consider unlawful what God and His Messenger have made unlawful, and who do not believe in the true religion, until they humbly pay tax with their own hands. -Quran 9:29

Sounds like Islam and Judaism are not peaceful religions at all and in fact are telling their followers to actually take violent action instead of just saying “let God handle it”

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 Talmud is a weird book of contrarian jews bickering over anything and everything.

Now, Islam, especially Salafi-influenced?

That's another story.

>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.

would it have hurt these guys to have written the Talmud a bit better?

"so and so said this but this man and this rabbi said this" is annoying to read

Sorry friend, but that is not how it works. We christians do not work togheter with muslims and even less jews. For we believe the only true abrahamic faith is christianity

They will kill you if you try, and possibly even kill your new converts. Try to convert Indians in the Western world if you want, but be careful when trying to go to countries that won't protect your rights.

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.
