“But I have prayed for you, that your faith would not fail. And you, when you have turned back, strengthen your brethren.”

Luke 22:32

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

Confess your offences to one another and pray for one another in order to be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective!

James 5:16

Alright, I want an honest debate about the Bible alone vs Apostolic Teaching.

For the retarded Catholic mod that pushes people more towards Baptist/Protestant by banning them irrationally. I'm asking you nicely to please not view this thread. Catholics literally caused the Protestant Reaction Movement so I don't need your flawed input. Other mods are welcome to ban people but not the Catholic mod(s).

With that out of the way, how is Sola Scriptura supported by the Bible and how is it not?

There you have it: The Catholic and Orthodox officially worship (dulia or hyperdulia) Mary and the saints. I'm sure people go for latria there too, given how I see people talk about Mary, with extreme adoration that brooks no Biblical arguments to lower her status to human.

>Matthew 23:1-3

He's basically validating the whole Mosaic law and the prophets. Telling them to obey the Old Testament which the scribes and Pharisees had transmitted, but by no means follow their hypocritical practice because it was nullification of that same law. See Mark 7:7-13. All they could do was add their corrupt oral traditions next to it to nullify the word. So they tried but failed.

If you're worried about them corrupting the OT itself, it's impossible. They couldn't do so if they tried, because God gave his own word it would never be changed or lost.

Isaiah 59:21

As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.

Isaiah 40:8

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

Deuteronomy 29:29

The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

If by that you mean, listen to them but not do what they do like bribing Romans to kill people and for people to betray each other; then yes, you're right.

>worried about corrupting the OT

I think if they did somehow do that the first thing they would do is make sure everyone knows their authority is verified by putting it in the OT. Because it's not in the OT but Jesus recognized the authority. Again, something in the Bible which goes against Bible Alone but there are verses that support it. I'm 90% sure now the only people who can corrupt the word of God are the people that misinterpret it. Take that as you will.

The term "the" means I am referring to a mod I witnessed unfairly ban someone. I put the (s) because I am not sure if there are more than one, but I'm pretty sure it's just one. It wasn't toward all Catholic mods, just the irrational ones.

>in fact, the Patriarch of Alexandria gets the title of "apostle" too. There are certain pastoral roles that are given within the Church, from those who previously had the same roles, and this can be traced back to the 12 (and 70) apostles, which is what apostolic succession is all about.

Nice job proving your church wrong. There will only be 12 apostles for New Jerusalem so if you say that thise added ones are then your church is a lie.

Revelation 21

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Has everyone on /christian/ really accepted the idea of hell?

I've accepted that if God says you can rape someone and then marry that same person for silver, that's fair. I've accepted pretty much everything in the bible.

Except Hell.

I can't explain hell to myself. Its eternal torture.

Is there even any hope? Like when we're made judges of angels and things like that, we can just end the souls of everyone in hell instead of keeping them there for torture?

Its said that god's morality is written inside people, so they instinctively know homosexuality and other things like that are wrong, but I think nobody really has accepted hell in their hearts.

Matthew 7

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness.’

Its so strict, even one of the catholic/orthodox canonized saints might be in hell right now. This isn't a free gift. You have to meet specifications. Many are a called, few are elected.

How can you call yourself a Christian yet reject the real presence? Maybe you don't gotta go full transubstantiation (though that is the most ideal concept and most true to the scriptures), but at least acknowledge that when a valid priest celebrates the liturgy, that Christ becomes fully present in the Eucharist in some way.

all three apply.

it's symbolic and literal in a mystical sense. His spiritual presence enters the food, although to the flesh it appears unchanged, the flesh can't grasp this miracle, you have to see it with spiritual eyes. Just like in Matthew 16:17 he says "Blessed art thou, Simon, for flesh and blood has not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in the heavens." The flesh profiteth nothing in that it can't comprehend his words, which are spirit and life.

Flesh can easily understand a symbolic parable, but he wasn't merely preaching symbolism.

When he said "the flesh profiteth nothing" he wasn't referring to his flesh, which is of infinite profit, the eternal word made incarnate. He was referring to the jews who kept thinking in mundane-worldly terms and couldn't understand how the Spirit could alter bread and wine at all, they couldn't understand the mystical nature of his words. So in John 6:61-62 he challenges them, "do my words offend you? What if you shall see the Son of Man ascend into heaven?" He didn't backtrack and say "this is just a parable of sorts" he implied this is a minor miracle, and you can't accept it? What if you see an even greater miracle? But still the protestant-jews couldn't accept this minor miracle so it continues: "But there are some of you that believe not…. From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him"

>hurrr what is a “Man”

This is the stupidest info graph I have ever read. The constitution points out the obvious fact that all men, despite cultural differences, desire personal liberty and freedom. Trying to obfuscate this by playing word games is absolutely pathetic.

The constitution argument is just as imbecilic. He makes it seem like there has to be absolute homogeity in order for a constitution to be effective. But good constitutions are created to protect basic human rights (freedom of speech, association, prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment, prohibition of search without a warrant, etc). So many people of differing nationalities have flocked to the United States for the precise reasons of personal and economic freedom. After generations of living in the United States, certain aspects of their home culture maybe preserved, but ultimately what happens is that people will start to develop new customs; thus creating new traditions in the process. Traditions are made based on the environment and the economical and political circumstances of a nation. But being social creatures as we are, humans will constantly create and maintain customs and traditions. In a sense, there is no such thing as a “non-traditionalism” because any set of beliefs, behaviors, and customs that a person has is either entirely or partially inherited by past ideas, behaviors, etc. New traditions are merely editions and modifications to the old ones, and they will transmit from generation to generation like all traditions do. Even within relatively racial homogenous countries, there exists a wide variety of cultures and traditions.

In short: this moron has no idea what the fuck he is talking about. Get this pseudo-intellectual twat out of here.

I keep getting these weird periods of disbelief and ennui, like nothing I do is real. It feels like the world is devoid of consequence, meaning, or action and I am a castaway bobbing about in the tide. I don't understand what brings it on and my constant loneliness only makes it worse.

I have to remind myself that what's going on around me is real to some degree but it still culminates in an awful feeling of emptiness in my gut.

I make sure to pray before I sleep every night but during these phases I often find that I only sleep for an hour or two, but multiple times throughout the day. I don't eat or drink.

What should I do? What might be causing this bizzare state of mind?

I wore my now-baptismal cross before my baptism. You'll just have to take it off before you get baptized, then put it back on once it's blessed. It's a good idea to at least buy your cross a while before your baptism, because they can be expensive.

As I said, what's important is that you do not wear it outside of your clothes. That's a mistake I made, both because my cross is honestly really nice-looking, and because no one knows about Orthodoxy so I get people curious about it, and honestly, mainly because my cross irritates my skin because it has sharp edges.

>The soviet Union was never overthrown despite how oppressive it was.

But it was? Well, to be fair, in the long run capitalism isn't much less oppressive. And how many Soviets do you think who had felt oppressed by the communism would endorse it? They kept silent due to fear, not due to faith in the idea. Pretty much still happens in Best Korea.

So you're going to say that Romans 1 is pelagianism as well? What if I tell you that the original sin is the weak and wounded nature of man itself?

>405 Although it is proper to each individual,295 original sin does not have the character of a personal fault in any of Adam's descendants. It is a deprivation of original holiness and justice, but human nature has not been totally corrupted: it is wounded in the natural powers proper to it, subject to ignorance, suffering and the dominion of death, and inclined to sin - an inclination to evil that is called concupiscence". Baptism, by imparting the life of Christ's grace, erases original sin and turns a man back towards God, but the consequences for nature, weakened and inclined to evil, persist in man and summon him to spiritual battle.

<As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins (Ephesians 2:1)

<no one seeks for God.

It says dead. Dead people can't so much as move a single finger or think a thought. Paul agrees with this sentiment in Romans 8:5-8

<Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

>Baptism, by imparting the life of Christ's grace, erases original sin and turns a man back towards God

<For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast.

<So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy.

If you say you were able to come to God because you were baptised (as an infant or otherwise), then you are saying you came to faith of your own will, exertion and might. You then have faith not as a gift of God, but as works wherein you can boast.

This is why Jesus said:

<No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.

I sincerely doubt they are ever going to just "change their mind about the whole Sodomy Thing" so there is really only one course of action.

I never said it was a school, but he is still teaching the kids about faggotry and the kids are most likely pupils.

Problem is that *thing* in the thumbnail has a human soul.

The only just punishment for him would be some form of exile, as he isn't *directly* harming anyone.

Why did God, on multiple occasions (The tenth plague of Egypt, David's first son, arguably the flood) personally kill innocent people?

>I know for me, the lessons in His sovereignty are the hardest to accept a lot of the time.

Y'know, when I first came to this board 2.5+ years ago, the words "His sovereignty" were like speaking heresy. It seemed no one believed in it, and when you spake it, folks sperged out bad. I'm not sure whether people have learned from this board, or whether we've just gotten a more mature crowd here now, but this is heartening.

Regardless your doubts, anon, you're on the right path, for His Sovereignty is about the hardest teaching there is because of its implications and most people would rather run from it than hear it taught.

Well, that and "muh free will" :^)

They weren't innocent. They were descended from Adam, making them born sinners. Plus, the Egyptians worshiped their sun god(s) as a scarab, meaning that they literally viewed a shit-eating insect as divine.

We are sinners because we are Adam's children. "Spirit" is patrilineal, and Christ was not conceived by a man, but by the Holy Spirit, and therefore did not inherit Adam's sinful nature.

My favourite game with Christian theme is Dante's Inferno, released 2010. Hell in that game is so grand and evil. I get the chills when going deeper down into hell. Also the power of the cross is depicted almost every second of battle. The game should be more appreciated, forget God of War.

What is your favourite Christian themed game?

To be honest, it's lust for a sin which screams vengeance against God's throne, so I think it's worse than "vanilla" lust on some level.

hey OP, i have a similar problem - i get thoughts and ideas about sleeping with lots of women

on top of that i have a lot of rage, so i often feel like murdering people who have angered me

i'm also quite selfish, so instead of giving my time and energy to folks in need, i indulge in useless entertainments that only serve to please me - and in effect: idolise my own pleasure

oh but much worse than that, i don't love my Creator as much as He deserves; the One who gave me life and salvific faith often being forgotten as i go about my other pursuits and sins

thankfully, He is a wonderful and merciful God who goes out of His way to rescue those whom have gone astray; continually sanctifying them and bringing them back to a humble submission and a recognition of His glorious grace; His mercy overwhelming me to the point where i prefer to spend time in true worship than indulging my lusts

so if you are a believer in Christ, having turned from your own self-determination and having been gifted with the ability to place your trust in Jesus to save you; then He will complete the work He has started, and even use your sin as a means to make you more dependent on Him - for He works all things together for good, for those that love Him…. and those who have been forgiven much, love Him much more

of course if you're not a submitted slave to Christ Jesus then there's no hope for you, so it doesn't really matter how much homosexual stuff you do - you're facing an eternity set apart from the One who is Life, and that would ruin you just as much as if you were a heterosexual adulterer
