I used to have some respect for him when he stuck to solely philological and ethnographic issues. I'm not convinced (as much as I wish to believe it was so from my Evola and Bachofen readings) that original Nordic Europeans developed blue eyes and blonde hair from short days and low sun exposure in the forest. By that logic, the Lapps and Yakuts should be light haired and blue eyed, since they live in similar conditions (near arctic forest/taiga), but this is not the case. I believe the blue eyes and blonde hair is characteristic of the Indo European people hailing from the Caucasus region (that is to say outside the periphery of the European continent), whereas the ur-population of Europe was likely dark haired and eyed (although most certainly NOT AFRICAN as a recent idiotic documentary claims).

However I find his recent tendency towards edgespiralling is appalling. No doubt the influence of the fawning Zyklon Ben kiddies on his comment feed. He needs to take a frickin break from making youtube videos, farm some vegetables, play with his kids, make a couple more with his wife, otherwise I fear he will go down the road of becoming another like obsessed THOT like the rest 'em youtube "personalities".

As far as the anti-Christian stuff goes it is fairly laughable bait tier, since it doesn't go much further than "muh jewish religion" and "6 gazillion Baltic Vikings murdered by the (((Deutschritterorden)))"


Eh, I don't know, I mean he drives a Lada and seems to be fond of Russia. Maybe fresh air, family life and closeness to nature will sober him up eventually and hopefully we might see Br. eVargius in a couple years.

In area where I live there is a real threat from Satanic groups, Islamists, criminals and other malcontents attacking our parish and its goers and stealing its property. In my parish there were about 4-5 break ins by burglars and vandals in the past few years, thankfully so far, no physical harm was caused. Therefore learning a practical martial art to defend our selves and those of our fellows is a real need. I sincerely pray of course that it would never be needed of me to raise my hand against a fellow man in violence.

I would say taking up boxing is a good start, followed by grappling classes. Oriental martial arts are hugely overrated and their instruction is rarely serious. Of course getting fit and staying it is the primary prerogative.

Because it doesn't entail any serious danger. "Safe sex" implies that sex is typically unsafe, and this terminology is invariably used by those who want to normalize fornication.

>sex is never safe

are you a rapist?

33efac  No.773348


Marriage can act as a sort of emotional buffer for lovers because the first year or so of the relationship is full of sexual desire, which many in our generation view as love. When the courting process is extended further than that, it allows both lovers to see each other in deeper levels of appreciation and respect, essential components to the long term success of what should hopefully be a lifelong commitment to one another.

Part of the reason why sex is 'unsafe' now is because of the emotional and physical risks associated with it now that widespread fornication and short term relationships have broken the ability for people to be emotionally mature with their partners; as soon as the sexual spark dies, the relationship dies, even though in successful relationships it tends to move more in waves, coming and going with the flow of life.

Sex can be risky if not properly prepared for; anyone whose been to public school has seen the sometimes disastrous effects of the young experimenting with sex, often powerfully influencing their grasp on what a relationship is and how to build on it with your partner. This is why the older wisdom of abstinence, patience, and temperance were held in such high regard: many good fruits came from it.

REVEALED: Vatican Secret Rules for Priests Who Father Kids…

“It’s the next scandal,” said Vincent Doyle, the son of a priest. “There are kids everywhere.”


ROME - Vincent Doyle, a psychotherapist in Ireland, was 28 when he learned from his mother that the Roman Catholic priest he had always known as his godfather was in truth his biological father. The discovery led him to create a global support group to help other children of priests, like him, suffering from the internalized shame that comes with being born from church scandal. But one archbishop finally showed him what he was looking for: a document of Vatican guidelines for how to deal with priests who father children, proof that he was hardly alone.

The longstanding tradition of celibacy among Roman Catholic clergy was broadly codified in the 12th century, but not necessarily adhered to, even in the highest places. Rodrigo Borgia, while a priest, had four children with his mistress before he became Pope Alexander VI, an excess that helped spur Martin Luther’s Protestant Reformation. Luther wrote mockingly that the pope had as much command over celibacy as “the natural movement of the bowels.” But Mr. Doyle said that the website for his support group, Coping International, has 50,000 users in 175 countries. He said he was first shown the Vatican guidelines in October 2017 by Archbishop Ivan Jurkovic, the Vatican's envoy to the United Nations in Geneva.

Mr. Gisotti, the Vatican spokesman, said that the internal 2017 document synthesized a decade's worth of procedures, and that its "fundamental principle" was the "protection of the child. Mr. Doyle, who once studied for the priesthood and has sought to cooperate with church leaders, played a role in developing them, said Martin Long, a spokesman for the Irish Bishops' Conference. Canon lawyers say that there is noPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>all priests are pedophiles and abusers and have children and REEE!

I hate to be that weirdo

But I can't stop feeling like God is speeding things up.

Everywhere I look, society, church, theology, philosophy, they all seem to culminate at a certain time period.

I'm not saying the time is near and I'm not trying to profess the future. But,

It really seems like God is starting to seperate his flock more and more from the world. Even the lukewarm people of faith are either becomming more traditional or are falling completely from the way.

I'm just wondering if any one else is seeing what I'm seeing or am I legitimately going mad?

Honestly, none of this is new if you read history. Read Petronius's The Satyricon or Aristophanes's Assemblywomen for a glimpse into eras of Greece and Rome, obviously they are works of fiction. Wealth and leisure breed decadence and moral regression. Just be mindful that none of this is exceptional and there is always a correction.

It most likely won't be the end times, but you are sensing the end of an era. The beginning of a dark age, but not the end. Decadence is nothing new and this cycle has played itself out before. Pray, live faithfully is all we can do. Anxiety is the work of the Enemy.


I'm of the opinion that there is always an antichrist on this Earth, that Satan is constantly raising new ones up in the hope that one will eventually be the one of Revelation, but of course, hoping that he will win. Food for thought.

>They change lyrics of the liturgy use of God to I, making it change from third-person to first-person. This screams blasphemy to me

I don't think blasphemy makes sense in the context of a lyric/poem where the 'character' of the speaker is ambiguous. It's not exactly the same as a priest blatantly telling his followers that he is their lord, as a matter of fact when preaching. The medium itself let's the listener detach the words from the singer, and attribute them to whoever makes the most sense in that context (i.e. Jesus).

I mean, it could've still been done intentionally to be edgy and "blasphemous", but I think that backfired spectacularly considering most of the comments on their videos ended up being pro Christian, lol.

I mostly was just interested in an english translation of the lyrics. I think whether or not "it's christian" depends mostly on what it's being used for, not whether or not "it is" – like all art, I suppose. For instance, the song "Painkiller" by Judas Priest can easily be considered christian, imo.

I was raised Catholic, and only recently started to look into other denominations within christianity.

Until now I believed that reformed christians are also protestants however I recently heard my new neighbours claiming that they are reformed christians, but they are not protestant. So what is the distinction between them? Are they closer to catholicism?

To add to this, the shepherd-sheep relationship in the NT never suggests a single greatest authority figure

>The New Testament uses these metaphors with less variance. In the Gospels, shepherd denotes Jesus Christ, who is associated with the lost sheep of Israel, except in quoting Zech 13:7 when the reference to sheep refers to the disciples of Jesus (Matt 26:31; Mark 14:27). Outside the Gospels, sheep refers to believers in the church (Heb 13:20), whereas shepherd denotes either Christ (Heb 13:20; 1 Pet 1:25; 5:4; Rev 7:17) or a pastor (Acts 20:28; 1 Pet 5:2).

from "Pastoral Ministry: The Ministry of a Shepherd" Ch 8

Peter saw his role as an elder/bishop/overseer as equivalent to every other elder

<1 Therefore, I exhort the elders among you, as your fellow elder and witness of the sufferings of Christ, and a partaker also of the glory that is to be revealed,

<2 shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness;

<3 nor yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be examples to the flock.

<4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. (1 Pet. 5:1-4 NAS)

If a pope openly says that you don't have to believe in God to be Catholic and says that Jesus wasn't a real person, is that Pope still a pope?

Currently my viewpoint is that while I wouldn't claim to be a sede, I don't think their views are that crazy. I don't think we have enough information to be held accountable to not take the sede route. I have a lot more respect for SSPX too, and at this point I don't trust anything coming out of the church. I expect things to only get worse though and not better - there are a lot of people who think these things will be cleared up and we'll have some sort of widespread trad revival or something but I am quite confident that we have entered end times. If you consider the world was supposed to be for only around 6000 years the timing makes perfect sense too. I also view the canonizations as highly suspicious. It's a possibility that they had deathbed conversions but by no means are their lives worthy of heroic virtue, and they are political. I believe a large amount of bishops and cardinals do not believe the catholic faith. It may be a majority of them actually.

As for winning the battle we first of all have to work very hard on ourselves to become holy, lots of prayer and penance first of all. Once we reach a sufficient state of holiness we evangelize more. We cannot fix the corruption the the church. The antichrist is coming soon and the great apostasy is underway. We can save some people from falling away and there are still people who are converting into the church. But there will be no big fixes, the mass apostasy will come into full effect, and then the antichrist will come and majority of people will worship him as God. Then Elias and Enoch will show up and help us out. We have to keep the faith and stay strong.

I need some advice /christian/

I come from a Baptist/evangelical family, I decided to convert to Catholicism in August and am currently going through RCIA classes. My parents have largely been neutral or receptive to this. Recently I learned that my mother, an active member of her Baptist Church in my hometown will be going on a trip to Greece with others from her church put on by the International Mission Board. They'll be going to a camp outside of Athens that the UN abandoned, and that there will be others to help them out. According to my mother they'll be mostly doing Baptist ministries to a community that purportedly is actually in need and not just migrating into Europe. This is all according to my mother, I'm taking her at her word.

While I do feel sympathy for those in need, I also know that the mere presence of these migrants has caused an immense amount of trouble in Greece and in Europe. Now my mother isn't blind to that, but she insists that this is something she's led to do and that she'll be ministering to these people and genuinely helping them. I set aside my Catholic beliefs, knowing I wouldn't convince her about those in an evening over the phone and explained to her that although I knew her intentions were good, that her helping these migrants would only serve to aid and abet the wider phenomenon of mass migration into Europe, that ultimately less good would be done in the long run. Additionally, I expressed a concern for her safety, if the UN abandoned the last camp, heaven knows what could be in store. I explained my case briefly over the phone and she said that while I was welcome to keep in contact with her about it, she ultimately felt that God was calling her to go to Greece.

Here's where you all come in. I'm going to be writing up a case, a proper argument against her going to Greece (more so for my own sake). I can find plenty of evidence in relation to the migrant crisis. If you can, because my knowledge of Scripture, its interpretation on the matter is not befitting, any and all Scriptural arguments I can use. I trust that this body of believers can be of some assistance. In order to assure you all that I'm not simply shirking my work onto others, I will be pursuing the line of inquiry into Old Testament Law, how the IsraPost too long.

OP here.

After some time to think I decided to rescind the construction of a proper case. I realized that It wouldn't matter what I said, my mother will still go, whether or not God has actually called her to go. I called her to tell her I still think she shouldn't go, but recognized it was her decision to make. She was very gracious about it, and specifically requested me to send information about the current state of affairs in Greece. Please pray for her safety nevertheless.

Thanks all.

What are some virtuous hobbies for a Christian? I spend way too much time on a computer, in front of a screen, and have no idea how to spend my time in a positive way other than praying or reading about the faith. I tend to burn myself out spiritually, and I'm either only focused on God or completely shutting him out with entertainment

Gonna have to third gardening. Leaving aside the Adam and Eve thing it's too easy for modern people to spend all their time inside and lose appreciation for the growing things.

I'm reading the 1611 KJV, and it's slow going to say the least. I'm currently on the book of Elazar. Is this something that is supposed to be accomplished in a relatively short time span? There are so many pages, Anons. With all the Apocrypha included it must be one of the longest books ever written. Any good strategies or advice? How long did it take you to read this thing?

So you're a frustrated, freshly rejected incel. No worries, I'm sure the Lord can help you with your temporary butthurt. Welcome to the board, sinner!

Alternating an average of 3 chapters a day (with an occasional 2, 4, or 5 chapters a day), and missing some days for various reasons, it took me about a year to read the OSB Old Testament. Finishing up Matthew now.

My advice? Don't treat reading the Bible as a race for bragging rights. Don't get me wrong: if you have the speed-reading, comprehension and memory capacity to read at a fast rate comfortably, then by all means.

Nevertheless, you should read at a rate that feels comfortable for you. Don't treat the Bible like you haven't eaten in days, and have a Thanksgiving selection laid out in front of you, and you try to scoff it all down in minutes, or like some competitive hot dog eating contest. Treat it like partaking in the spiritual equivalent of a gourmet meal. In other words, take your time; neatly and painstakingly cut it into pieces; chew slowly and deliberately; really partake in the enjoyment of the complex flavors.

Your attitude towards the Bible, overall, should be: "I want to understand this", not "WHOO! I FINISHED THIS IN 5 SECONDS!!!! WHERE'S MY GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS AWARD?!?!?" As such, a study version with copious footnotes is highly recommended.

>66 chapters (like 66 books)

>first 39 are judgement (OT)

>rest 27 about salvation (NT)

>first 9 of 27 chapters about salvation of israel from nations around it

>back 9 salvation of the planet and establishment of the new heaven and new earth

>middle 9 salvation of people as individuals personally

>middle of the middle 9 is Isaiah 53

Preddy neat but what do all u CatDogs make of this if your canon doesn't have 66 books? Nice co inkydink but doesn't this easter egg validate prot canon and that they're on the right track (with the canon, at least)?

In addition, it's not like the Church is taking any serious effort to care about orthodoxy. No one should be surprised if Pope Francis encourages for the Quran to be read piously by all Christians and that it is worthy of pious contemplation, and it contains some of the most sublime truth known to mankind contained in the pages.

>actually two dead bodies

I know! Justin Trudeau has been dead for years. He's now a ventriloquists dummy, right?

How else do you explain the bizarre behaviour other than someone's havin' a gig?


>Also, nice job putting a dead body in your post. A fraternal suggestion: remove this immediately, it will be a stumbling block for many who will see it and the mods will not take it lightly either.

>a stumbling block for many who will see it



>post dead bodies for everyone to see

Why is this what you use to rebuff anon's arguments? Is /christian/ suddenly australian aboriginal, scared of seeing the dead? Smells a little like you fished for an excuse to not debate an anon who disagreed with you

That said, that whole Yahoo article is just odd

Isaiah 59:21 says that the words God put in his (Isaiah's) mouth would be preserved for ever, but the apocrypha aren't even in the original languages. And it's pretty simple to prove since they admit they weren't prophets and Matthew 11:13 tells us that the law and the prophets comprised the word of God until John. So to claim they were inspired would contradict Matthew 11:13.

The Monophysites are not Orthodox, regardless of what they call themselves. They are not in communion with the Orthodox Church.
