How can Christianity be fair if there are people that are never given a chance to convert to it such as, Native Americans or abortions? And how do Protestants deal with there being a time where the only avenue to know Christ was through the Roman Catholic Church?

What does "doctrine doesn't save a person, Jesus does" even mean? The moment you explain how one is saved by Jesus is the moment you establish a doctrine.

The Orthodox Church's doctrines are those that Jesus left behind, that the Apostles taught, and that the bishops inherited, however.

A little off topic, but I'm still confused. When Anderson talks about John 1 he says that this is talking about the Bible and not Christ, "I mean what kind of name is Word anyway 'What up word!' etc. Is he saying that the Bible is one of the persons of the Holy Trinity? If so which one? I'd assume Jesus, but if it were Jesus why then does he begin to abuse the book later on in that sermon saying that its "just a book"?

These two thoughts don't really square together. Is he saying that the Bible has existed in a non physical form with God, as God for centuries, or is it something else? It just doesn't make sense to me.

Why are Catholics called "Catholic" and not "Western Orthodox"?

If the Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Churches both use "Orthodox" despite not being in communion with each other, is not the Catholic Church rightly called "Western Orthodox"?

Hell, one of the titles of the Pope is "Patriarch of the West", first used by Pope Theodore I in 642.

Is it just a linguistic thing to help define who is a Coptic Catholic, Coptic Orthodox, and the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria?

To play the devil's advocate, catholicity implies primacy (see pic related). The Roman Catholics believe that the Bishop of Rome has universal primacy (even supremacy in fact), and is the Vicar of Christ. I don't think that catholicity, as defined by them at Vatican II, isn't something they can allow themselves to claim.

>"Roman Catholic". It's like saying you're saying you're an all-inclusive guy who only wears blue.

"Roman Catholic" refers to a particular rite of the Catholic Church. Similar to how "Greek Orthodox" refers to a particular Orthodox rite. Roman Catholics are also called Latin-rite Catholics, opposed to Coptic Catholics or Sarum Rite Catholics. There are 23 Catholic churches in full communion with each other, and only one is Roman.

You could call Roman Catholics "Roman Orthodox" for the same reason Greek Orthodox are called Greek.

I see.

Well, in any case, they perverted the whole "inclusive" notion at Vatican II anyways.. since they claim leadership over everything else too, pagans and churches alike. It has nothing to do with a universal nature of the church, but a generic overseer over ALL mankind's religions. This is precisely what their centuries old bad ideas of God led them to. Or whatever Aquinas calls it: Divine Simplicity. That of a simple essence that can be in everything. Instead of a God who reveals in a specific manner and way, it's a God of universality even with pagans, instead of a God of revelation.

This is why Pope JP2 commited an abomination like Assisi (although to be fair, some Orthodox were there sadly). Once you think think of God as some concept that can be broken down by theistic nonsense/philosophical principles and understood by EVERYONE, then you eventually proclaim nonsense like "Even the Hindus and Muslims know of our God somehow." When that is NOT the God of revelation. When he appeared to Moses in the burning bush, Pharaoh didn't also "somehow know God in his own way" at the same time. These are literally the kind of retarded conclusions their leaders have come to…whether they phrase it as such or not. I don't care anything about whatever primacy they think they have. It's a primacy over fallen man, at best. But not the Church.


a1e576  No.759985

The Catholics I've spoken with would say otherwise. They would say that the Church calling itself "Roman" is extremely important, because Rome is the foundation of the Church, and all other churches derive their orthodoxy and catholicity from Rome alone.

I'm not Catholic so I won't insist on defending this though, but this is what I've been told.

Are there any conservative high church Anglicans here? I would be surprised if you are still part of the Anglican Communion. You are probably one of the various splinter groups that rejects gay marriage, gay and women priests, and other errors.

Have you heard of Western Rite Orthodoxy? I have, and that is what I prefer. Although I do not have an Anglican heritage, many Western Rite Orthodox do. In fact, one can argue that most Western Rite Orthodox are former Anglicans. Many Western Rite Orthodox even argue that this is the fulfillment of Anglicanism: in their historiography, the English Church was Orthodox/Catholic prior to the Norman Invasion, at which point the English church was essentially held captive until reborn during the reformation. In one view, we see Anglicanism as existing in parallel with Orthodoxy in the rejection of the Pope and the conservative consideration of only seven ecumenical councils.

http://www.holycatholicanglican.org/about_us.php

http://www.holycatholicanglican.org/resources/great_schism.php

Those articles are by an Anglican website.

On the other hand, we see Anglicans converting to Western Rite Orthodox as "returning" to their Orthodox past. In this conception, the English church was Orthodox until the Norman Invasion. Western Rite Orthodox, largely using Anglican materials, thus provides Anglicans with the pre-Norman Orthodox English Church.

https://www.icxc.ca/history.html

That article is by a Western Rite Orthodox Church.

The two appear to be very similar: conservative high-church Anglicans and Western Rite Orthodox.

I am curious how such Anglicans can justify being Anglican compared to entering Western Rite OrtPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

That's just Henry VIII's initial motivation. Elizabeth and James I (of KJV fame) embraced Protestant a bit more fully.. but also pissed off Puritans because they ruled that the sacramental and pageantry aspects of Catholicism be kept (among a few other doctrinal things.. like revering saints). But by the 19th century, it was all over the place, spawning both the traditional and liberal thinkers.. then by the 20th, it was fully gay.

Episcopal is independent, but had it's starts as the colonial branch of Anglicanism (America, Africa, etc).

Catholicism is creeping itself towards what Anglicanism/Episcopalians became too. So Catholicism isn't much like Catholicism all the time either. Especially on the higher/leadership levels. It's embracing much of the scholarship of the Left wing academic world, like mainline Protestants do.

Traditionalists here aren't like that, but from my understanding, that's why they're annoyed by Vatican II. It liberalized the church (and not in good ways).

Orthodox for the most part (the problems are mostly individual), Traditional Catholics (I don't know why they're not Orthodox though), and I dare say.. some Evangelicals actually. Even if they have some tacky approaches, I think they've maintained a core bible-based approach to their faith. It's confusing though, and you have to discern between them and mainline Protestants. Sometimes they look the same at first.

Hey, don't really want to clog up the board here but figured I might as well ask, and it's probably worthy of its own thread, especially since it might help others. Basically just looking for advice on what denom. to join, so just skip to the end if you don’t want my full background and the dilemma I’m dealing with here.

I've been a discerning Christian for about a year and a half. I started out by getting into esotericism and occultism (never actually believing in it, it was more of an interest/hobby and I didn't practice anything with it) and I started to look into Christianity as it all felt incomplete and it sort of opened up a door out of new atheist-tier thinking. That along with watching Jordan Peterson stuff and that non-literal / Jungian kind of understanding helped me get to where I am now.

I've had several religious experiences and all kinds of strange happenings in my life that have made me amenable to religion, specifically the Christian religion, but I'm still pretty much unsure as to which denomination is correct. I've gone through lots of apologetics and I would say I have a beginners understanding (or more) of most of the major denominations, but I've been unable to discern which is the best through rational means as well as through prayer and fasting, nothing has really yielded any clear signs to me.

Hello /christian/ !

Im here with a question.

As some of you probably already know there is one sin that will not be forgiven and that is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.

Now the chief example of this in the Bible is Mark 3:28-30.

The pharisees attribute Jesus's miracles to the devil, and Jesus warns them that they were about to blaspheme the Holy Spirit.

Jesus also calls the jews the sons of the Devil in John 8:38-45

So if you claim that Jesus was a jew, does that mean that you practically claim that he is a devil/evil spirit and this blaspheming the Holy Spirit?

I think it is a grave sin to slander Jesus as a jew especially if we take "jew" to mean a son of the devil, but I think that in order for it to be blasphemy, you must willingly blaspheme against the Holy Spirit in full knowledge of what / who it is.

So I think that a vast overwhelming majority of LARPagans can be saved.

"Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit" is the sin according to which one sees God's glory and thinks it is demonic or evil. Such a person is at a point at which they see the greatest good in existence, and think it is the greatest evil in existence. Such a person has completely cut themself off from God and cannot ask for forgiveness, therefore they cannot be forgiven.

The people Jesus was calling "sons of the devil" were not the Jewish people as a whole. He was addressing the hypocritical Pharisees and teachers, who were more concerned with making perfect exegesis of the Law of Moses and following it (and the conclusions they made out of it) to perfection, but completely ignoring the meaning and intentions God had behind this Law. Imagine someone who goes to church whenever there is a service, who does their prayers and fasts perfectly, who reads the scriptures like a book of law and insists on following every bit of it to the letter and punishing those who do not, but meanwhile they do not love their neighbor, or give everything they have for the needy, or simply have humility and recognize they are not better than anyone else. Those are the Pharisees of today.

Their wickedness was confirmed by the fact they could not realize they were facing God, the very God they claimed to live and breathe for. In fact, not only did they not welcome Him, but they even tried to kill Him.

So, I'm a 19 year old boy who was solely attracted to girls, but has developed an attraction to femboys after years of viewing pornography. Is it possible for myself to be rid of homolust through prayer (and/or other spiritual means) or is it now a new form of lust that I must struggle with?

Hey Anon 19 year old young adult here in the same boat pretty much.

Been watching porn since 12, been a slippery slope since then to vanilla, weird vanilla, wtf vanilla, beastiality, shemale, shemale on male, crossdressing, femboys, bbc and femboys and so on.

First what you need to realize is that you wouldn't even know about half of this crap without porn and the internet, much less be turned on by it, it took you years of conditioning to get to this point and saying "wow guess I was into this all along" is simply foolish.

Just how you get here you can go back (or go forward in a sense if you hardly even know what back is due to early exposure).

I saw you comment that you tried and failed NoFap, try again, naturally if you fail it's gonna be a shit night of binging on porn and either blue balling or failing but, simply don't fail, the task is really simple, accomplishing it is hard since you pre-conditioned brain is working against you.

It's not even necessarily fapping (this is not an excuse to fap without porn tho) it's porn that's unironically brainwashing you, research what porn actually does to your brain, understand it and fight the process by rebooting.

You gotta stop looking at sexual material, don't be a day counter but vow to done away with all the porn and lewd images crap, if you deprive your brain it will eventually start rebooting, some images will always be in your memory but the further you go without looking at porn/lewd crap the less prevelant said images and desires will be in your mind to the point where you eventually develop normal hormonal balance, balance of mind and balance of sexual desire and go entire weeks without even the thought of porn.

OP here. Well, it's 2019 now and it looks like this new year has been starting off to a decent start.

I've stopped watching porn. The last time I watched it was last year. I've gone a month without watching porn now. I'm hoping to keep going and never watch porn again. The homolust, gay thoughts, and so on were strongest about two to three weeks in, but now after a month, the thoughts aren't nearly as troublesome. They still come to me at times, but it's already not nearly quite as often. I know I have much to still do and that the struggle doesn't end right here, but still, I'm thankful that God has lifted much of this burden off me. I hope that the Lord will continue to grant me the strength to reject this form of lust. Of course, while homosexual lust is becoming easier and easier to combat, heterosexual lust isn't. If anything, that has worsened. But, as awful as this might sound, in a way, my increase in lust for women makes me feel more in tune with my true heterosexual self. I know lusting after women is sinful. I very much need to repent from it. But, instead of lusting after men and women, I'm basically only lusting after women now. Again, I know it's sinful, but I will say that I feel more like a "normal male" by such lust towards women. I feel as if my appreciation for women and specifically for the female form has come back fully. Now, to just work on curbing those lewd thoughts about cute girls in my classes and what not. ;_;

Again, the gay thoughts and urges are still there at times. At this point, it's already quite infrequent though. I've grown some genuine disgust with it now. Before, I would only feel disgusted after looking at the material, but now I tend to feel some disgust just at the thought of it. I'm hoping as time passes that I will only be more and more put off by any of this gay junk. I pray the Lord grants me the mental strength needed for all this.

My next step is to turn from masturbation. I went on my longest No Fap streak (21 days). I relapsed a few days ago though. Honestly, while it was still my fault, what led to my relapse was the lack of any release. I was doing quite well until about 17/18 days in. I started getting this incredibly annoying feeling as if I need to pee. It wasn't exactly like that feeling, but soPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

My initial reaction was due to a lack of expectation for someone here on /christian/, regardless of anonymity, to flat out admit to being a pedophile. I am very well aware of the presence of pedophiles that are on other 8chan boards or on halfchan (such as boards like /tv/), so I'm not too surprised that some are even here on /christian/, but nonetheless, I still was caught off guard that someone would flat out admit it. Now, the reason I still offered prayer (and I will make sure to keep pray for you as well) is because I do possess some degree of sympathy for those like you (though, as I said, it is quite minimal). You basically understand why. The reason I lack a great deal of sympathy is that your sexual sin of pedophilia, when in action, leads to physical rape and the permanent damage of a child's mental being, while my sexual sin of homosexuality, when in action, leads to consensual sex between to two adult men and at worst, a much higher likelihood of contracting AIDS and what not. This is why I lack a great deal of sympathy. The real life consequences of pedophilic behavior are far worse compared to the real life consequences of homosexual behavior (assuming it's consensual, unlike pedophilic behavior which is inherently nonconsensual). It seems like you acknowledged the differences between our two forms of sexual sin:

>Yes there are differences across a myriad of factors where the two things (perversions) cannot be equated, I am not saying otherwise.

>I get you might find the thought of our perversions instinctually worthy of revulsion, disgust and condemnation, and for that I don't blame you and know it is justified.

>and know it is justified

However, I said "borderline no sympathy" rather than simply "no sympathy", because I still do hold a little sympathy for you. That is due to my agreement with you that our sexual sin, while different in certain major ways, are also similar in certain major ways. We both allowed ourselves to become further and further perverted by pornography and are disgusted with it. This is whePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Yup, it's basically due to desensitization and constant desire for that which is novel. At least, in my case, that seemed to be the issue.

I've stopped watching porn finally. And yes, I for sure need to get my lazy butt up and do some exercise. I've been interested in lifting, but I suppose I never fully put my mind to getting into a routine and all. I know I should though. Thanks anons.

>>727265

Definitely. It's nothing but a perversion of my natural attraction to women.

Be careful anon, you may flatline after a few weeks but urges can hit like a truck sometimes seemingly at random regardless of how far you're in, always have a plan in that case.

Yeah, actually seen from earth it doesn't look like those telescopic photos with a pitch black background but rather the sky looked deep blue with stars nicely visible. The moon itself looked splotched with a dull reddish-brown hue and somewhat mismatches the surrounding deep blue of the sky. I also had to raise my neck up a lot to see it as the moon appears to have been positioned quite high or distant from the earth's orbit and it was also looked quite small from where I was.

I apologize to the moon though for describing its phenomenon so belittlingly.

God gives clues about the end of times. Christians: "Don't think about it, only God knows…"

Except that everytime the latest supposed end times event is proven false, Matt. 24:36/Mark 13:32 is quoted, which would be a main the cause for people refusing to assert any claim for the moment of its coming to begin with.

I wish he would, the more I see the world spiraling into insanity, the more I want to see Him and enter His kingdom. I know I'm not a perfect man but I see trannies and furries and even 'normal' people defending them and I feel as though the world has gone mad and we've lost sight of who we are.

"Two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are pressing a nominee for the Nebraska federal trial court about his membership in the Knights of Columbus, a fraternal service organization of the Catholic Church"

"Democratic Sens. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii and Kamala Harris of California submitted written questions in December to Brian Buescher, an Omaha lawyer nominated to the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska, proposing that he resign his affiliation with the Knights, which they call an “all male society” that “has taken a number of extreme positions” on social questions"

"Among other items, Harris asked Buescher if he was aware that the leadership of the Knights opposes gay marriage, while Hirono asked whether he can assure litigants that he will fairly judge matters relating to reproductive rights"

What is the view on spanking here? I see many reports that spanking is bad for kids but the bible says otherwise.

Breastfeeding, giving birth and bathing your children are all far too sexual. We must abolish all physical contact between parent and child!

Can do, and no it's really only illegal in theory, and hardly even so then. You want to know what's actually illegal? BDSM. Yep BDSM is felony assault and where I am people have gone to jail for grievous bodily harm and malicious wounding that they inflicted upon one another in an orgy. Yep, the unrighteous have cause to fear.

Not advocating it, and I don't want to mods to ban me for promoting scandal. But let's just say I've read some really messed up stuff in the case law, so you're hardly going to be named scoundrel of the year for smacking your wife's ass.
