>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.

“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!

From what I know, tech and video game industries tend to be very hardcore left wing and it's filled with SJWs and other horrible people. The stereotypical SJWs that always say "f**k white people, there is no god, I hate Christianity, you should respect Muslims and Islam cause it's their culture you islamaphobe. I like the new pope cause he supports gay rights." etc.

Not to mention the propaganda they push is hardcore left wing and big tech companies like Google and Facebook tend to censor any right wing or Christian views. I got to find sources later when I'm not half asleep.

I don't care if the holocaust happened or not, it could have been 30 million jews who were killed for all I care. Jews do not care about the dozens of millions of Christians exterminated last century, act as if they have a monopoly on the concept of being the target of genocide, and actively persecute people and put them in prison for years if they so much as ask forbidden questions about the events of the second world war.

There have always been unbelievers in society. However, the difference between now and, for example, 12thC Europe, is that the over all cultural climate has switched from being pro-Christ, in spite of whatever sins and imperfections plagued society, to being anti-Christ, in accordance with the sins and imperfections of society.

The fact that your medieval person went to Mass every day and was surrounded by a culture that reached upwards obviously did not guarantee them personal holiness – free will is always a factor – but it was likely (and was as we can attest via the numerous biographies and histories written in the Middle Ages) that, relative to an average person today, they attained a level of faithfulness and grace inaccessible in today's world by ordinary means.

That being said, the challenges of the modern world provide an opportunity for the faithful to truly test themselves in a way someone living in a theocracy did not have access to. The average believer today is living in a desolate wasteland when compared to a medieval person; whatever little faith they can muster means all the more.

I should just correct my wording with regard to attaining faith or grace – obviously these are gifts from God and not willed into being by human effort. People in the Middle Ages had fewer distractions from God, fewer impediments in day-to-day life, and therefore were afforded fewer opportunities to sin and turn away from God's love.

As for when things went south, it is difficult to pinpoint an exact date, as if often the case with slow changes in society. Among others, the French Revolution is a key point for it is when it became explicit that human social organisation was to be for, of and by humanity, as opposed to divinity.

Of course there throughout all of history - even in modern times you will find many communities of genuine and sincere Christians (just as you will find unbelivers and sinners) even if no country could accurately be held to be Christian.

The biggest changes though and what I guess you have in mind are times when Christianity was the dominant way people understood the world where death was near and everything outside of Christianity was a mystery. These kinds of society on a large scale were always going to be jeopardised by the development of materialist science/natural philosophy.

For instance when practices like germ theory were developed it was discovered that the use of alcohol to sterilise (or even just having doctors wash their hands) proved to be a better control for infection and survival than prayer, accordingly the perceived role of God in every day life retreated a little. Things like this developed steadily in a vast array of other areas be it evolution, the understanding of mental illness, the understanding of weather/climate, orbit of the planets, volcanoes ect. Like a death by a thousand cuts these little changes built up over time and the every day the role played by God and Satan became more abstract and indirect which in turn lead to the decline of a Christian centric understanding of reality.

In addition to this you also had the fact that as natural philosophy grew more specialised and advanced the clergy lost their ability to be a dominant source of theological and natural understanding which also diminished peoples reverence and respect for Christianity in a way that had not been seen since the days of Origen. Members of the clergy were a huge part of scientific discovery and knowledge right up until the 20th century.

The jews helped the muslim during the islamic invasion to spain.When the christian recover the iberian peninsula the jews have to convert to christianity avoided the expulsion.Many of these jews accept Jesus in their hearts but other still practicing the judaism.They asisted tomass But in secret they visited the synagogues. Many of these false converts infiltrated the church and took power. It was difficult to differentiate them in medieval society. That made a discontent in the population about the Jews. In Spain, an ex-Jewish priest showed him the Pope about the talmud and command to examine the book. Two years later seized these and burned them in the squares.

It's not that concretely metaphysical.

An example is the confession. There is a feeling guilty, and a quiet apologizing that precedes it, but the act of saying you've sinned is extremely important. Prayer is somewhat similar.

So the word Logos was chosen to show that Christ is God communicated to us? The unknowable and infinite that has expressed itself fully in a way that is comprehendible? I'm struggling to see the relationship between Reason and Communication. How can one word have two seemingly (to me at least) unrelated meanings? Is there context that implies one meaning over the other? Do both apply?

>>756890

I'm not entirely sure of the answer to this myself, but I hope this provides some usefulness. The Logos is reason, for the universe is ordered. It is structured, it follows patterns. All of creation is ordered towards God. Like how plants grow towards the sun, creation grows toward God as the destination of our journey. This makes us ask, naturally enough, what exactly we are growing toward? What exactly is God, that we are reaching for? So if Logos is also communication, it is that communication. The communication of our undetermined longing made plain for all to see.

So supposing you have Reason and Longing this seems like a reasonable connection between the two.

I have a couple good friends who are Shia Muslims from Iran. Sunnis (Wahabists in particular) are not receptive to Christianity at all; I had someone threaten to beat me if I kept speaking… Shia Muslims seem to be the only willing to hear about the faith. I'll share my largest hurdle:

They claim to already recognize Christ and Our Lady as a sinless virgins, thus they insist that they already are "Christian" but believe that the text we follow was corrupted. My instinct is to point out that, if Our Lady and Christ are sinless, then how are they "less" than Muhammad, a worldly man that fought wars and had a harem? Of course, anther problem I have is not being inflammatory… but it's frustrating how obstinate they are. I'd like your help, /christian/. Please share your experiences.

Narcissism is a term commonly used to describe those who seem more concerned with themselves than with others. It is important to distinguish between those who have narcissistic personality traits and those suffering from narcissistic personality disorder. For example, narcissistic traits may be common during adolescence, but this does not necessarily mean that the teenager will go on to develop the full disorder.

Some of the symptoms associated with NPD include:

An exaggerated sense of one's own abilities and achievements

A constant need for attention, affirmation, and praise

A belief that he or she is unique or "special" and should only associate with other people of the same status

Persistent fantasies about attaining success and power

Exploiting other people for personal gain

A sense of entitlement and expectation of special treatment

A preoccupation with power or success

Feeling envious of others, or believing that others are envious of him or her

A lack of empathy for others.

Do you posit that I'm a narcissist? I don't continue if they're not receptive, but what's wrong with telling the gospel to a Muslim… I do "want" them to convert, sure, but I never talk in a manner that is hostile. The example I gave in the OP is my instinct, but I know that "blaspheming" their "prophet" is not the way to win their heart, at least initially. I wanted advice.

So I'm not sure how many of you know who this guy is, but if you search the name of Jesus Christ on youtube this guy's video and channel (which youtube endorses because it has the verification mark).

Well apparently his back story is that he "escaped an extreme religious group/cult" thanks to youtube showing him the light of atheism, and he took his kids with him. But now his wife and family are saying he's insane and can't have the kids, and needs youtube to help him. He's out of retainer fees for the legal battle and needs YOUR money help!

While asking for help he goes on to directly bash Christianity by saying youtube freed him from superstition and that his channel promotes skepticism.

so was him getting JUST'D divine providence? How should we feel about this?

Pray for redemption and for humility instead of praying for him. Or maybe do both, but pray that his day be blessed or something, instead for his "mental health".

The cult was the FLDS. The "Ultra-Mormons"

Thank you anon, I wanted to know what he was from for a while.

Even if he is a blasphemer he will be closer to christ with the sinners then pharisees and heretics.

I can see why his family is so insistent on him not “ruining the family name”. Still, he has merely swapped the cult of Mormonism for the cult of liberal inclusivity and “skepticism”. Above all, I will be praying for his children, since when they grow up, they will probably be embarrassed of both their mother’s polygamist church and their dad’s cringey vendetta fueled blasphemy. May God let them see that the true, and I mean the TRUE Jesus Christ is much more reasonable and caring than the two extremes they’re being pulled against, which really are the same thing under two different names.

Blasphemer, Socal jesus, is now getting #metoo'd and he needs your help. To help him, all he needs is your credit card number 💳 , and the three numbers on the back 3️ and the expiration month and date 📅. But you gotta be quick ⚡so that Socal jesus can secure his kids, and achieve the epic child custody R O Y AL.

Weed is a sin.

If you are using marijuana you creating a negative impact on your spiritual life.

This is a drug. It is a drug that ruins your mind. Stop using it.

Sincerely, an ex-user.

How about you do us all a favor and leave this board and head off to /gnostic/ or whatever hole you come from. Also, I heard they started a church in Denver, CO where they encourage pot-smoking and getting high "for the Lord." Sounds like it's right up your alley.

That's right. He did leave us this great big document saying what is and isn't permissible. And pharmekeia isn't permissible.

IMO the cursing of the fig tree represents pot where you should never blame the drugs for your own mistakes.

>Because listening to people talk about cannabis on here is like listening to soccer moms discuss proper firearm safety.

Listening to you twisting Scripture to fit your personal agenda is like listening to a 14-year old atheist discussing why the Bible is a fairy tale. You're in the same vein as Pastor Anderson saying the Bible he is holding is literally God. First of all, I can bet that you've never read the Bible cover-to-cover once in your life. You probably get all your Bible arguments in favor of pot from some obscure 420 forum through a casual web search since you're so lazy and stoned out from all the pot you smoke. Second, if it's not apparent to you from simply reading the Bible and taking this into prayerful consideration, then face it, you're a lost cause. Please do us all a favor, make like a tree, and leaf outta here. Pothead.

This was recently found in a magazine, but it's questionable in its authenticity.

https://www.marturisireaortodoxa.ro/parintele-efrem-filotheitul-si-a-trimis-ucenicii-acasa-spunandu-le-urmeaza-sa-se-intample-ceva-foarte-rau-pe-continentul-nord-american/

>Father Archimandrite Efrem Filotheite, 91, who pastored several monasteries in the Holy Mountain of Athos, moved from 2005 to the United States and founded 17 Orthodox monasteries according to the Athonite order. He was a Disciple of St. Joseph the Ishast, and now lives in the Saint Anthony the Great Monastery in Arizona, being an improved confessor. What did the Holy Father Efrem Philotheitus do this year? Let's pay attention to the significance of the facts: he urgently sent home his European disciples who are in America. "Home" means in Romania and Greece. From what I understand there are over 1,000 apprentices in this situation. They did not initially want to leave, but the Old Man called them and revealed a discovery he had, namely that something very bad is going to happen on the North American continent, after which he gave them parental command to move to the countries where they come from. "But with you what will happen?" They asked him. "I will soon die here," he answered them. But you are going away today. " Most of them returned to their native places. One of the returnees unveiled this news somewhat anxious. Together with them and Father Ephraim, let us all pray!

Made me laugh because it's true. Also the word you are looking for is not foreboding, but rather foreshadowing. And we've had a lot of foreshadowing; anyone in America who hasn't noticed yet is clearly blind and deaf.

In this thread we'll post updates in Ukraine and their newly founded church so we don't have to derail the Orthodox general

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.

Catholic opinions also welcome but please try to stay on topic.

Heh no worries, i just wanted to pay my respects to the EP. I literally went and buy two of his books few days ago. I always thought off him as a somewhat lukewarm (the irony of me thinking that), overly ecumenist old man. Turns out that's very far from the truth.

The thread wasn't derailed, just no one was responding to you. Probably because either they don't care, or they don't share your enthusiasm for the schismatics.
