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 ecumenical board experiment has failed. The same tired assertions are repeated ad nauseum, only growing the tension between Catholic and Protestant, and it's not even witty banter.

Compounding the situation is the perception that Protestants are being censored. The protestant either leaves, which encourages the echo chamber effect of Catholics, or they stay and their hostility grows.

I'm proposing an exodus from here for my protestant brothers. We are strangers in a foreign land that doesn't welcome us. Segregation would be best for both parties.

I can't say its failed, granted there are plenty of people with bad will whether intentional or not on the board but theres still plenty of proper discussion between Christanons of all denoms.

As far as I'm aware there isn't another place like this aside from the few other christian boards on 8ch that aren't entirely full of atheists and other demon worshippers, if you take a look at places like /pol/ it can get much, much worse, in terms of discussion being completely shutdown.

That being said, everyone should try to be more charitable to each other on this board, a body cannot stand divided against itself and the powers that be are only going to start persecuting us more as time carries on.

I don't think you fully understand the passage you've just quoted. The translation appears so be quite old, so it's understandable that someone today could misunderstand the passage. I recommend you read Michael W. Holmes' translation of 1 Clement 35.

>How blessed and marvelous are the gifts of God, dear friends! Life in immortality, splendor in righteousness, truth with boldness, faith with confidence, self-control with holiness! And all these things fall within our comprehension.

Here Clement is talking about the gifts which we can understand now.

>What, then, are the things being prepared for those who patiently wait for him? The Creator and Father of the ages, the all-holy One himself, knows their number and their beauty. Let us therefore make every effort to be found in the number of those who patiently wait for him, so that we may share in his promised gifts.

And here he is talking about a separate set of gifts that we cannot understand. He is saying that our works determine what unknown gifts we shall receive, but justification is not one of these gifts that is based on our works. This is why he says right after this passage that we are all soldiers in Christ and that not all soldiers are centurions or captains and that the great cannot exist without the small.

However, for the sake of argument, let's say Clement is saying that justification requires works in chapter 35. That does not mean he is not teaching justification by faith alone in chapter 32, which he very explicitly is, here and in other passages, even in the full context of the epistle. It would only mean that he is inconsistent and therefore not a reliable source for interpreting the Gospel. Just for clarification, I am not saying he is inconsistent, but if we follow your interpretation then he would have to be.

If they were so easy to refute then you'd give reasons why they're wrong instead of just saying they're easy to refute. And I doubt you've even taken the time to study the matter. I have and I've discussed it with other Catholics and I'd tell you that there is no answer to these.


5f7dde  No.774215

>>773103

You've shown a lack of critical thinking. Even John Calvin and Martin Luther believed in the necessity of works. Clement here is in fact quoting Ephesians 2:8-9. We know this because he uses the term "dia pisteōs" which translates to through the faith and is used by the writer to the church in Ephesus. Also, he wasn't a bishop. If you read the shepherd of Herman's you'll see that he was a transmitter of letters.

>Thou shalt therefore write two little books, and shalt send one to Clement, and one to Grapte. So Clement shall send to the foreign cities, for this is his duty; while Grapte shall instruct the widows and the orphans. But thou shalt read (the book) to this city along with the elders that preside over the Church.

Vision 3 of shepherd of Hermas. You should also bear in mind that a lot of early succession of bishop lists have contradictory accounts of early bishops of Rome because they did not have monarchical episcopate until the middle of the second century. So about 150ad. That's why the bishop lists from before that time have different bishops at the seat.


7e8d2f  No.774226

>>774207

>I am not saying he is inconsistent, but if we follow your interpretation then he would have to be.

It is only inconsistent if we don't distinguish, as the Church does (as I have shown), between the beginning of justification, which is by faith and cannot be merited, and it's continuation, which requires works, and which Clement is incontrovertibly explicit about in chapter 34, where he states that those who do not do works cannot even look God in the face.

>>774215

>Also, he wasn't a bishop. If you read the shepherd of Herman's you'll see that he was a transmitter of letters.

A single line concerning one of the functions of Clement's ministry, not his office, is not enough to erase the universal consensus among tradition of his office as the Bishop of Rome, even if not his place in the line of succession. That's just bad historiography.

>Even John Calvin and Martin Luther believed in the necessity of works

Sauce?


206018  No.774241

>>774226

Regarding Clement, he was told to send letters out and wasn't someone of authority. You say unanimous consensuses but the early church in fact contradicted with each other when talking about the succession of Roman bishops during the period prior to 150 ad.

And for source here's John Calvin

>I wish the reader to understand that as often as we mention Faith alone in this question, we are not thinking of a dead faith, which worketh not by love, but holding faith to be the only cause of justification. (Galatians 5:6; Romans 3:22.) It is therefore faith alone which justifies, and yet the faith which justifies is not alone: just as it is the heat alone of the sun which warms the earth, and yet in the sun it is not alone, because it is constantly conjoined with light.

Antidote to the council of Trent

And here's Martin Luther

>"If [good] works and love do not blossom forth, it is not genuine faith, the gospel has not gained a foothold, and Christ is not yet rightly known.”

No, it wasn't a case of Jay explaining it poorly, it was just the classic atheist/materialist delusion where they simply do not get the point and are not able to follow through on their positions to their logical conclusion, i.e. that they (do not actually) have any basis or foundation for rationality, logic, morality etc etc. Happens literally all the time and nothing to do with how it's explained, it's just that they're in denial/literally delusional. And hey, like I said, it wasn't a debate but maybe if it was Jay would have taken the time to construct his points and deconstruct Styx's more comprehensively to lay out the latter's contractions more plainly but, well, it wasn't a debate, so..

The great heretics of history were perfectly knowledgeable in orthodox theology, but chose to derail the Church deliberately. That's why heresy literally means choice.

Dyer calls anyone and everyone who is on a honest path to God that's not his own, a heretic.

Father Freeman? Heretic. Pageau? Heretic. If you don't pass Jay's theology test you're a heretic, even if you convert as many if not more to Christ by different means that don't inflate the intellectual ego.

I have trouble believing seriously that the broad span of history, hitherto almost entirely religious, will be reversed by subpar ideologies because a few city-folk invented cable-television and the internet. Perhaps /Islam/ will take Europe for their vast iniquities, and the remainder of European people will toughen up and reconquista when the time is right.

Nevertheless, today is no more or less Christian than any other time, it just has more naysayers. Never trust the masses and what they say, today they love atheism, tomorrow they may love Christianity, or Islam, but they are crooked sinners to the core in every age.

If you are concerned about the spiritual well-being of people, I suggest you turn off the news.

Francis says church's attackers linked to devil…

In the darkest moments of our history, the Lord draws near, opens paths, lifts up discouraged faith, anoints wounded hope, and awakens sleeping charity.

http://archive.today/2019.02.20-155609/https://komonews.com/news/nation-world/pope-says-churchs-attackers-are-linked-to-devil

VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Latest on the Vatican summit on dealing with sex abuse of minors (all times local):

11:55 a.m.

Pope Francis says that those who are constantly attacking the church are linked to the devil. Francis on Wednesday told pilgrims from southern Italy that the church's "defects" must be denounced in order to correct them. But he said that those who do so without love and spend their lives "accusing" the church are either the devil's friends or relatives.

Francis spoke on the eve of a Vatican summit on clergy sex abuse and cover-ups by the church's hierarchy. Detractors, including a former Vatican ambassador to the United States, have accused him of not properly dealing with top prelates and priests who were suspected abusers. Francis didn't cite specific accusations nor mention the summit in his remarks. He told the pilgrims that the Bible calls the devil the "great accuser." He added that "we are all sinners, some big" sinners.

11:20 a.m.

The author of an explosive book on gays in the Vatican says the culture of secrecy that has hidden the double lives of clergy is intrinsically linked to the culture of cover-up about sexual abuse of minors. Frederic Martel, a French gay rights activist and author of "In the Closet of the Vatican," told a news conference Wednesday that studies have long shown that being gay is not a risk factor for committing sexual abuse. But he said the culture of secrecy about priests' homosexuality had contributed to the abuse scandal. Speaking at the Foreign Press AssociatioPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Daily reminder that God will NEVER let you to be tempted beyond what you can bear.

In other words, you ALWAYS have the spiritual weapons to fight and resist against sin, and you have God to thanks for that. Do not believe protestant coping-lies ! You can resist sin, you can try to emulate Jesus-Christ, try to be as close to him as possible. Of course, it is very hard, and you will know failures during your journey, but ask forgiveness and repentance, and you'll be able to live one of the purest lives you can.

Presbyterians advocate that elders are the operate the church. In Scottish Presbyterianism, the elders would elect the minster. the central authoritative body is the 'General Assembly' where Elders and Ministers meets together and decide upon Church policy. There is a Church moderator but he is not like a bishop or pope, he merely overseas an manages discussion and administration.

Although under the 'reformed' or Calvinist tradition, a Presbyterian differs from Reformed baptist on this issue of infant baptism, with the former thinking that it is acceptable. This is because Presbyterians hold to 'covenant theology'. This argues that the covenant of Abraham and Christ are continuous. This means that the covenant sign of baptism can operate tat same way the old covenant sign of circumcision did, i.e can be applied to infants.

Presbyterians historically have a more collectivist outlook compared to baptists. Indeed, in Scotland the congregation was urged to admonish itself is one of the members of the community had sinned, has they had created the environment for the person to be tempted. This links back to infant baptism, as we are partly responsible for our community , and thus our childrens salvation, as well as our own.

Gay Catholic Priests Speak Out…

One priest in Wisconsin said he assumed every priest is gay unless he knows for a fact he is not. A priest in Florida put it this way: “A third are gay, a third are straight, and a third don’t know what the hell they are.”

"I really am gay," Father Greiten, now a priest near Milwaukee, remembered telling himself for the first time. For years, church leaders have driven gay congregants away in shame and insisted that " homosexual tendencies " are "disordered. The stories of gay priests are unspoken, veiled from the outside world, known only to one another, if they are known at all. Fewer than about 10 priests in the United States have dared to come out publicly. But gay men likely make up at least 30 to 40 percent of the American Catholic clergy, according to dozens of estimates from gay priests themselves and researchers. The environment for gay priests has grown only more dangerous. And yet prominent bishops have singled out gay priests as the root of the problem, and right-wing media organizations attack what they have called the church's "homosexual subculture," " lavender mafia," or " gay cabal. This week, Pope Francis will host a much-anticipated summit on sex abuse with bishops from around the world. When Pope Francis uttered his revolutionary question, "Who am I to judge? "The vast majority of gay priests are not safe," said Father Bob Bussen, a priest in Park City, Utah, who was outed about 12 years ago after he held Mass for the L.G.B.T.Q. community.

Today, training for the priesthood in the United States usually starts in or after college. Many gay priests spoke of being pulled between denial and confusion, finally coming out to themselves in their 30s or 40s. Father Greiten was 24 when he realized he was gay and considered jumping from his dorm window. "There will be a time in your life when you will look baPost too long.

Because there's no such thing as homosexual Vs heterosexual. You're either a normal man who likes women as god intended or a disordered filthy sodomite.

Should you prepare what you wish to confess? Should I go to confession with a little piece of paper and all the sins I can think of, written down?

You don't need a paper. You just need to examine your conscience before going to confession.

Care to elaborate on this process? Whenever I think of doing this, I just think of taking deep breaths, settling myself down emotionally and observing my thoughts, trying to maintain a humble, orderly state of mind. Is it at that point that I start trying to remember past sins?

>>774179

Yes basically.

You first ask the Lord light to illuminate your mind, I usually go in chronological order remembering my sins, think about the sins, the circumstances that might change their nature etc etc.

In the end of confession as forgiveness for the sins you might have forgotten.

If you remember them later you'll need to mention them next time.
