Scandal includes encouraging people to commit sin like fornication, masturbation, blasphemy, apostasy, abortion, lying, taking the Lords name in vain, suicide, and the like. Any esoteric topics will fall under this as well.

Interdenominational debates are allowed on this board, but they are still governed by charity. InsinuatiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>What is this thread?

The designated political discussion thread. Christians from all parts of the political spectrum are encouraged to discuss relevant political topics and ideas, as well as ask questions and hopefully recieve answers from all points of view. Anything related to politics that doesn't actively involve the Catholic/Orthodox/Protestant churches should go here, so if a politics thread is deleted, this thread is the reason why.

As a reminder:

All board rules apply to this thread, so keep things civil.

The news are running like crazy and i think many people haven't yet realised the significance of the event.

We can also discuss our objections to the autocephaly if anyone has any. All opinions welcome but please try to be civil and elaborate on your disagreement.

>Could you cite evidence for this? Because the Ukrainian Orthodox had a church prior to this with broad rights but it was just under the jurisdiction of Moscow.

The Russian church in Ukraine was really just a tool of propaganda of the Russian state. They proved that even more by not attending the council for a unified church in Ukraine by the orders of Putin. Their believers were around 15% of the total Ukrainian population, which is also the percentage of the Russian diaspora in Ukraine to no one's surprise. Ethnic Ukrainians were in schism. If the Russian church cares only about the Russians around the world it's their problem but Orthodoxy doesn't belong to them.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Ukraine#Types_of_Orthodoxy

>Orthodoxy or death just means that. You don't have to be OC to use that slogan. The monks at Mt. Athos still raise the Byzantine flag, pray for the Orthodox emperor, and operate on Byzantine time.

The only ones who are using the "Orthodoxy or death" banner in Mt Athos are the schismatics Old Calendarists of the Esfigmenou monastery who are a real problem to the actual monks over there. They are the ones who came up with the slogan before their Russian counterparts adopted it. Byzantine flags are a different thing, it's the flag of the Greek church, nothing to do with old calendarism.

Turkey is in NATO but also a close ally to Russia. Russians seel many weapons to the Turks in spite of NATO's disagreement. Both Turkey and Russia are enemies of the Ecumenical Patriarchate that was there before any of them even existed. Paid agitators don't die for their cause. I don't know how and if the CIA was involved in the Euromaidan but then again that has nothing to do with Ukrainians need to have their own church and not be depended on the church that's blessing the weapons that are killing them and their relatives.

Tbh I am not very surprised. I am not a fan of Russia myself even though I am not ukrainian. I do not like religion dragged into politics. I realize that Ukraine might be used as a pawn against Russia…but tbh I do not believe in "Putin le emperor" meme. After 2 world wars I do not trust them. We had a good time with soviets for me to be wary of Russia.

>>786475

I listen to him. I disagree with his view of "latins" and him distorting catholicism somewhat. I also do not understand his enthusiasm over Putin. Moreover..he is an American convert and I hold grudge against them somewhat. I do not know if he's a heretic from orthodox point of view, for me he is a heretic for denying authority of Rome. Considering his final reasons for leaving catholicism(mentioned in mysterium fasces) I cannot agree with him since I never felt catholics believe you are "damned" everytime you sin. Claiming that only Orthodoxy gave him peace into heart…well yeah if he had a distorted view it could be true…but that does not mean that this is what catholicism is….feels over facts.

Also the notion if "created grace" he claimed "papists" believe in I encountered one single time…when he mentioned it. lol.

His shows are somewhat good though I will leave him that.

I just have a few questions surrounding miscegenation that I cant find any suitable answers to. Im asking primarily from a Catholic standpoint.

1. Is miscegenation a sin? If so, why?

2. Is it a sin to be opposed to miscegenation? If so, why?

Thanks in advance for any help.

A scientist would be horrified if you proposed mixing all the species of canines that exist all over the world and yet in regard to humans they turn a blind eye due to ideological censorship.

The mixing of everything is biological communism, annulment of the richness of difference, destruction of God's creation. The pro miscegenation ideologies are the ones who most hate God, coincidence? Anti-Logos.

It should just occur naturally and circumstantially in the borders of groups, never as artificially state produced and venerated like we see nowadays in the west.

No, it's not a sin. In the Old Testament, marrying outside of your nation was the same as converying to another religion, because each nation had its own religion, similar to what LARPagans shill for on /pol/. Also, God wanted the bloodline of Christ to be pure, and that prophecy has been fulfilled.

The only thing that is a sin is marrying an unbeliever.

>The Iranian national claimed asylum in 2016, but was turned down, with Home Office officials saying his conversion from Islam was 'inconsistent' with his claim Christianity was a peaceful religion - by highlighting violent passages from the bible.

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.

Considering how porn is produced, what is done to you when you watch it, how our youth is destroyed, manhood vanished….how can you even ask such a question?

>why lust is a sin

because sex is for marriage, to create an offspring

>porn is a sin

because sex is for marriage and procreation

I am sorry but you should not even ask such questions…..your disgust with porn should be in your instinct. It is perverted, unnatural and ugly.

Ask yourself: How do you feel in the moment when the orgasm falls off and you realize you are in front of a screen naked as Adam in Eden, you have to close that filth in your computer and clean up the mess you've made? Do you feel good? I hope not because this is the time one feels the worst regret, realizing how pathetic one is.

So I’m a huge fan of 60s rock, but the musicians who made it often lived less exemplary hedonistic lifestyles and embraced weird new age satanic spirituality. I hate the idea that these people who have enriched my life might be denied access to God’s kingdom, so I’d like to pray for their souls.

Here’s what I’m wondering, ordinarily you pray for the souls of the recently departed, and usually the recently departed person is a family member or friend you knew personally. Other than that, you might just give a vague “Lord have mercy on all your departed servants.” Would it be wrong to pray for specific people who died decades ago, people who I never knew or met personally? Would it accomplish anything, or would it just be wishful thinking on my part? Is there any formula for such prayers, or is this so unheard of that nobody method of doing so has been devised?

I says classic rock stars just cause those are the specific people I’m thinking of, but I’m sure someone else on /christian/ looks up to some historical figure without being confidant that person is saved, so I think this is a worthwhile discussion to have

I know Hussites. I also know he translated some English guy who was a complete heretic (even denied transsubstantiation). While he held only some of his views I want to know what exactly Hus preached in order to understand why he was burned.

Right now my opinion is that he probably had it coming.

>>787873

Yeah. This is what bothers me the most. The guy was inspired by someone claiming eucharist is crackers, even translated his works in order to spread heresy and they proclaim him a saint because…obviously muh latins.

This is why I want to know more. Also I view with scorn making wwii communist collaborators saint while codreanu is painted as an "extremist". I realize this is the case with RCC now too. But it is all so tiresome. Especially making a proto-protestant heretic a saint.

I don't know of any Orthodox that considers Hus a saint and i'm pretty sure there is none. I also don't know about his theology but i believe that burning him alive and the attitude of the Catholic church of that era in general is what gave birth to the reformation in the first place. Don't forget that the Templars were also burned by the Catholic church for similar reasons.
