Out of all the seasonal churchgoers at my parish today, I think only one woman wore a dress that exposed her shoulders.

It was funny seeing women dressed extremely modestly not knowing how the Mass was run. I ended up helping a lady across from me find out where exactly we were in the missal.

Tbh I am not so I am going to work on myself so they do not feel ashamed in heaven when my name comes up. Instead you know….whining about how deenerate things are. Yes they are we all know it. The question is what will you do with yourself to counter that.

The question is are you willing to stand among the ruins on your own or are you lying down, eating dust and just insulting everyone because you're not willing to get up.

And do not waste your time with whores. Go for high quality women.

French archbishop ‘delighted’ to participate in dedication of mosque

March 25, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The Grand Mosque of Reims was inaugurated March 14 in the presence of Archbishop Eric de Moulins-Beaufort, who joined a host of local authorities, the mosque’s imam as well as a number of foreign financiers of the 3,750-square meter (about 40,000 square feet) complex that lies in the Saint-Anne area of the historic French town.

The Catholic archbishop gave a short speech and even posted his words on his Facebook page, saying he was “delighted” for the Muslim community of Reims.

Reims, a medium-sized provincial town in northeast France, has about 180,000 inhabitants of whom some 37,000 are part of the Muslim community, according to figures quoted by local media in 2014, when the Grand Mosque first opened to worshippers.

Its official inauguration was delayed for nearly five years in order to allow all interested parties and financial backers to take part, once the finishing touches were made. It is the largest mosque in France, built in a highly symbolic location.

Clovis, the first Christian king of the Francs, was a pagan. He was baptized in Reims on Christmas Day somewhere between 496 and 506 (historians differ on this point) by Remi, the saintly bishop of Reims, together with 3,000 warriors. His baptism is considered to be the founding event of what would become the Catholic kingdom of France, at a time when the chiefs of Gaul and most of the bishops favored the Arian heresy.

On the day Clovis was to be received into the Catholic Church, the crowd was so dense that it was impossible to bring the Holy Chrism for the sacrament. Miraculously, a dove – assimilated to the Holy Spirit Himself – descended toward the baptismal fonts, bringing in its beak of vial of oil, the “Sainte Ampoule,” which has been used since then to anoint the kings of France.

Thirty-five French kings were anointed in Reims up to the 19th century. The 14th-century Cathedral building still stands, beautifully restorePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I declare open this thread, as a guide to self development in the path of the superior christian man we all strive to be.

Make it like the other cyclical threads, so that we may all post about any recommendations and question we may have, about self improvement as human, not necessarily related to religion, but about leading a proper christian life.

Also, it is noted in various resources of the type, how its important for men to keep regular friendship with equally strong men, where we can brutally honest with each other, and find out if we were being lazy, false and just complacent about some objective or our path in life. So may we make this also a space where you share your plans, open and truthfully so others may judge if you're being honest with yourself on your purpose. Give updates and feedback so that we all may grow on our own.

If epigenetics can explain that couldn't it explain the evolution theory?


f82ec3  No.798452

>>798447

yes, exactly, that's the whole point. Under the mutation model, DNA could at least potentially come about by chance, but if there is no mutations creating genes, then that means that all this epigenetic potential didn't come about by chance mutations either. It must have been designed, as that's the only reasonable inference left.

Where does epigenetics come from, if it didn't come from chance interactions? When looking at the origin of new forms, be it the first form or whatever, it follows the same patterns of design, like that of the version history of a program. If it follows the same pattern as ordered things brought about by conscious agents, then it is not unreasonable to suppose that all of life was brought about by a conscious agent. This is a legitimate argument, because it couldn't reasonably have happened by chance in the amount of time available given it's odds, not even close, and that instead it much better matches the pattern of something designed by a conscious agent.


f82ec3  No.798457

>>798447

one of the reasons it is better that generally every day new forms that even we can see come from epigenetics and not mutations, is it points out that that things can only do what they are designed to do, and that they cannot develop new functions by chance.

It brings attention to the problem that, well if this is the case, how could anything come about by purely naturalistic means, if it can't reasonably be expected develop new functions by chance? Nothing would ever develop in the first place. It means that darwinian style evolutionary explanations wont ever work, because they are all fundamentally inept, so long as things cannot come to do things that they aren't designed to do by chance.

As the naturalistic argument wanes, the design argument waxes.


f82ec3  No.798459

sorry correction, BENEFICIAL new forms are the result of epigenetics, and not mutations. Mutations only deteriate forms, like how one would expect a mutation to, but that is still a new form.

Thanks. I need to study the subject more. What you say makes sense, but there are some few holes that remain to be filled.

I want to be able to disprove it properly.

I've been hearing a lot about this place called "Hell" recently but I don't know what it is. Literally speaking, "a place of eternal torment", ok got it. But what happens there? And would God create a world where he would, seemingly, destine a large portion of humans to hell? I don't know what heaven is either but that's for another thread. So what are your ideas on what hell is, who goes there, why? I can't help but think the God of the people is evil. Why create humans in a way where the majority will just suffer for an eternity?

I suggest a bit of empirism. Look at the people who chose to have fun. Rockstars, billionaires, mafia men. Their eyes are void, they get dependent on drugs, suicide young.

Consider moreover that not all who choose the wide path end up succesfully evil like those people. Most drift into self destruction. Because Fun is not Happiness. Happiness is knowing you are. And Happiness itself, it is not the Truth.

For Catholics we are saved by Grace, faith or works don't actually make any difference at all.

There is something called a state of Grace, you can enter into this through baptism, fall out by mortal sin, and reenter through confession (or if you repent because you Love God).

It's fairly simple/clear and lines up with scripture

So long as you have faith and align yourself with it you go to heaven, if you leave the faith you go to hell.

>Christ gave us tools to be born again of the water and spirit, baptism, which lets us enter the state of Grace.

If you die in a state of Grace, you go to heaven, it's that simple.

If you fall out of the state of Grace (what this means in practice is you act with such hatred of God he can no longer dwell in you, you become incompatible with him, he never rejects us, we reject him). Christ also gave us the tools to re-enter into it.

the whole faith vs works thing is a relatively new thing. Ancient Christendom never made a distinction. Let's look at the word 'faith' and how it's misapplied in the sola fide argument.

imagine you have a wife and she comes home one day and says "Honey, I've been sleeping with a bunch of strange men lately but it's all good because I still BELIEVE you're my husband"

This is not what a faithful wife looks like.


909817  No.798352

Its simple. Jesus died for us on the cross so in return we are forgiven for all of our past, present, and future sins. As long as we are remorseful of sin and we try to be close to God, we still have God in our lives. No matter what bad deed you do after that, you're still going to heaven. However, whoever does bad deeds might be corrected by God.


4c52d2  No.798386

>>798346

That's actually what James is getting at.

The whole faith and works thing is neglecting the misunderstanding the apostles were clearing up.

Paul focused on arguing against legalism and showed that it is God, through his grace, which imparts faith to us. And this faith in the atoning work of Christ justifies us before him.

James is arguing essentially against antinomians, or those people who having received faith believe they can act anyway they want because they have faith. James is showing us that our desire towards santification is the evidence of a true faith, being shown through the works we do. Elsewhere it is shown that God has laid out the works we will do in Christ Jesus.

So yes it is faith in the sacrifice of Christ that saves alone. And it is our obedience, to desire to love God by being having our minds renewed into what his will is. The natural result of this regeneration is fruit. A dead tree has been made alive, it is being tended by God, fruit will result.
