Having big brains like Augustine teaching no free will in his later years and Aquinas explaining redpilled things made Christian thought and the Bible mesh perfectly. But then suddenly every retard thinks they know theology and shitty memes like new age free will, Yahwehphobia, edomite zionism, tolerance doctrine, liberation theology, and even tranny Jesus start clogging up theological discussion. Today, it's impossible to find a pure Christian to discuss theology with who doesn't take at least one of those retarded memes started by mid IQ morons as unquestionable sacred fact.

Almost the entire East disagreed with Augustine and Aquinas on many matters. It wasn't just later "retards" only. Aquinas even directly challenged some of them.

Although he disavowed his own writings later himself.. so there's that. I learn from his humility more than anything. He was a great man just for this alone. We should all just shut up and stop probing into God. This is the realm of heathens to do that. Christians are called to llearn from God from revelation - not philosophy. Be it the revelation of scriptures, or life changing experiences like Aquinas had when he was shown the heavens.

The selection of the individual works to be placed into the Bible by the few and hundreds of years after events definitely shaped Christian thought. It is the worst to some, to craft a narrative that could be perceived as bearing false witness, and not to others, it depends on what you draw out or project upon. I've heard it said that Christianity was a Roman Empire subversion plot upon the rebellious Jews. The worst thing to happen though for myself is that it was left able to interpretation and thus becomes a tool or weapon for the explainer. Then again, a million years from now perhaps the ability to revisit time thru an yet unknown technology will set all records straight, and perhaps even another resurrection will indeed occur. Better rest with thought that the worst thing to happen to Christian thought occurs when the Christian is not thinking at all…

That's not true. Although I admit he might not have putten an emphasis on it since he was arguing with the retarded pelagians.

Whta the Reformers and Jansenius did was to take that stance to the extreme where one really denies free will.

Semantics. Everyone takes what is truly meant by Christian free will (having the ability to choose rationality over instinct) as a given absolute rather than a debatable concept, whereas retards who believe in new age free will actually believe in something extra that's really quite harmful and used to gaslight innocent people.

As much as the Reformation was, to some extent, necessary and unavoidable given the corruption of Rome and all the other issues in the Western Church at the time, it legitimised, with very grandiose intent, the mob-impulse, as seen in the sacking of cathedrals and killing of clergy that followed. The same impulse—fundamentally that of hubris—is what underlaid the Enlightenment and the French Revolution, i.e., the birth of secular, individualist humanism. This is why traditionalist Catholics and Orthodox alike are so sceptical of the Reformation, for it sought in no uncertain terms to "liberate" men from their corrupt past and restore purity—it is ultimately utopian.

That's the point of the mob: all boundaries and distinctions are dissolved to the lowest common elements. As soon as a prince joins the mob, he loses his princeship and becomes but another faceless destroyer. This is what the Reformation, I think unintentionally (Luther was no anarchist), gave space for, and it backed it up with moral and providential fervour.

But even he had the protection of one certain prince.. I forgot whom now (some German, I think). Maybe Luther himself didn't see the implications, but the political wheels were already spinning, and in him, these princes saw their means to break free of the vatican and foam dischord. Maybe to him, it was all mere theology.. but he was a pawn in this game.

There were more Henry VIII's than just Henry… some just went about it in less spastic ways.

Not a Catholic (Orthodox here), but St. Joan of Arc is another Catholic saint I have a soft spot for. She's an enigma to me. I like her letter to the Hussites (too bad she was distracted by the British).

"Jesus, Mary

For a long time now, common knowledge has made it clear to me, Joan the Maiden, that from true Christians you have become heretics and practically on a level with the Saracens [i.e Muslims]. You have eliminated the valid faith and worship, and have taken up a disgraceful and unlawful superstition; and while sustaining and promoting it there is not a single disgrace nor act of barbarism which you would not dare. You corrupt the sacraments of the Church, you mutilate the articles of the Faith, you destroy churches, you break and burn statues which were created as memorials, you massacre Christians unless they adopt your beliefs. What is this fury of yours, or what folly and madness are driving you?"

To be fair, Plotinus did attack some proto-Gnostic type of groups, but funnily, they're about the only ones who made full use of his crap. Or their subgroups (like Jewish Kabbalists). True Gnosticism as Christianity had to war against came after Origen (but he himself was a Plotinus fan). Origen spawned two types: The Gnostics… and unfortunately, St. Augustine borrowed some of his concepts (as well as direct ones from Plotinus, like his concept of the Trinity and absolute divine simplicity). But borrowing from some heathen on the TRINITY of all things is about the worst thing you can do. They're not the same thing, just because it may seem similar at first glance. This also leads to the faulty notion that humans can know God just through philosophical models.. when they can not..and leads one to believe that all men have some spark of divine knowledge of them.. regardless of Christ.

>you can't blame him, you'd have to blame the early christians who adopted his thought to contend with paganism. It was inevitable though, scholasticism is its culmination

It wasn't necessarily to contend with paganism per se at first either. In the earliest days, Christianity was seen as the religion of peasants/slaves/and dumb women. And it wasn't even respected from a Jewish standpoint. The same scoffing pagans would point out Jews disowned this sect too.

A few like Marcion snatched it up for their own purposes and tried to present how "philosophically" respectful it was, and he was glad to dismiss everything Jewish too. This was even worse.. for now you had something armed with Christianity, but stripping the gospels and the history behind it, and preaching neoplatonic/proto-Gnostic nonsense. In came the likes of St. Justin and Irenaeus (and Tertullian, although not a saint), and they knew philosophy very well. They upheld orthodoxy and OT history alike, and then proceeded to attack all angles (rather successfully): Be it Jew, Gnostic, etc.. They knew how to speak the language of these enemies, but they never imitated them. The only one who went all out with trying to merge Neo-Platonism was Origen… he tried tempering down some of the extreme angles of proto-gnostic thinking, but in the end, he was as big a fag as they were (or maybe not a fag.. since he chopped his own penis off). He has some great things to say, but one could get sucked into that and not draw the lines somewhere.

Unfortunately, St. Ambrose was a friend of Origen.. and even though Ambrose was strictly on the orthodox end, he must've encouraged the younger St. Augustine to glean some things from Origen. It's said that St. Ambrose copied much of Origen's library, so it's likely St. Augustine had access to it.

It could, but didn't.. because they realized they weren't self-sufficient (some humbled themselves later than others, but did learn nonetheless). That's the real danger of wealth. Or anything that gives one a sense of pride or self-sufficiency. It could be beauty as well (but women tend to see the folly of this sooner or later from aging).

I'm Orthodox, so there's obviously his pneumatology (the so-called filioque).

I make myself the same question.

Only important people get that when they are being heretics beyond protestantism.

Otherwise they are defended by their national bishops, like it happens thousands of times in America.

Someone let things go to far.

If the discipline was applied correctly more than half of the clergy would be excommunicated alongside 90% of the laity.

Nevertheless I think it should be done.
