/christian/ Meta thread Anonymous 07/25/2020 (Sat) 09:38:59 No.144 [Reply] [Last]
Hello and welcome all to /christian/, the new church of the cafe. I'll be taking over from the old owner, so if there's anything you want to tell me about the board, go ahead and do it here. In addition, I'm looking for a few mods to maintain the status of the board. If you're interested, please, contact me at churchofanoncafe@airmail.cc to let me know.
Isn't the main /christian/ board at 8kun?
>>145 I've heard that board is coopted by sectarian dumbasses. This board has always been around here actually.

Obviously people will have questions, so we should have answers for them. Can someone quickly summarize the main points of le Trashman's book on why God isn't real?

>>106 Why do you jerk off Hitler if you love Nietzsche? The guy fucking lost. He was weak to the "ZOG", to the "mutt" Americans and "subhuman" slavs. In a millennium educated people will look at your "saint" like they look at Hannibal Barca—a fucking footnote. Meanwhile I see more Christian iconography on European culture than Wotan. European art for the past millennium has been focused on a single Father and His Son, not a Pantheon of idols. But I guess Christianity isn't "European", in which case I would have to ask—what is? We see Aryans in Asia, and their cultures are so different, so surely there is more to Europe than simply blood?

Couple questions that have bothered me lately >Regarding ancient civilizations that were not in the ANE such as native Americans, Africans, Mongolians, etc., how could they have known about God? And if they didn't/couldn't know about Him, are they in heaven or hell? >Did Israelites before Jesus really have free will? Whenever they worshiped foreign gods, God would be quick to kick them in the dick by allowing them to be conquered by other peoples. Or is the idea of free will only present after Christ's sacrifice?
>>159 >And if they didn't/couldn't know about Him, are they in heaven or hell? Hellfire.
>>160 >this is the Christian idea of justice Don't Christians also believe that babies who die go to hell because they don't know about Jesus? Whack.
>>161 Not exactly, unbaptised babies go to limbo as they never committed sins. Limbo being part of hell was something Dante depicted, but to my knowledge they're separate. It is a sad lot but hardly hellfire. Also to earlier first post, there's a lot of conflicting beliefs as to what happens to the other peoples and nations. Christ died for our sins that we may eventually be redeemed, and its not as if those who call themselves Christian are free of sin. If you're looking for more info on it I'd advise reading C. S. Lewis. His essays are well-regarded and it'd be better than me butchering his explanations

Hey, christian bros, We have just relaunched the Infinity Cup! What better way to celebrate your two trophy titles than adding a third one? https://anon.cafe/icup/ is the place, come and be there!

Thank you to all who tuned in to the /test/ stream today. If you missed it, the matches will be up on the archive soon (https://pt.neko.bar/video-channels/icuparchive/video-playlists). We are officially two weeks away from the Group Draw to see who your team will compete against in the first stage of the Cup. If your team does not have their tactics sorted out yet, feel free to chip in by working on Team Strategies (http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Team_Strategies) or Player Cards (http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Player_Cards). I know this is complicated, so swing by your thread on /icup/ and I can answer any questions you might have. The deadline is July 31st. If you're not tactically inclined, you can still help out by creating adboards specific to your board. Adboards, like /japan/'s here, pic #2 related, are the little signs that cycle through on the sidelines during games. Post a board-related ad as a PNG in the same dimensions as /japan/'s and I'll be able to use it during the Cup. Any other OC for your team or roster you'd like to contribute is always appreciated as well.
Just a reminder you have less than a week to finish up tactics and player cards. If you are having any difficulties or are worried no one will step up, leave a post here or in your thread on /icup/. I have an anon on standby willing to put something together for teams who need help. If you're a team who has participated in a previous Cup and you have not explicitly let me know you're sticking with your strats from last time, do so ASAP, as it cuts down on the work I'll have to do in the week after the Draw Stream. If you've already done so, kick back, take it easy and wait for the draw stream. Draw Stream is August 1st, 2PM PDT, 4PM CDT, 5PM EDT, 21:00 UTC. Mark that calendar. As well, we're still accepting adboards for use during the tournament, visit the dedicated adboard thread on /icup/ and post them there.
Just under an hour away, Draw Stream, be there! https://cytu.be/r/8cup

I don't know if I did anything wrong, in fact the entire time I thought was doing what was right but it ended up with me losing my literal last friendship. > Have friends A and B > A owns a house, lets B move in while on hard times > B proves to be terrible to live with in objective terms > A kicks B out > B goes to police, claims A assaulted him > B texts me that A got drunk and assaulted him > A has gotten drunk and attacked people in the past, so not an unbelievable scenerio > B tells me he's talking to police > Tell B I'm sorry this happened, I'll support him however I can and that I'll talk to A > B tells me because he's already talked to police if I interfere depending on how A reacts it could make the situation worse for both A and B and it's better to stay out of it > I think about it and yeah, that sounds about right based on a past experience. > Tell him, I'll wait a couple days so he can do what he needs to but I do still want to talk to A > Couple days later call A > A says he denies any of the accusations, gives a very compelling argument for how the details B gave don't actually add up that I can't really explain here without doing a huge info dump of everything everyone said to me about what happened on the day in question. > I tell him what I was told, when I was told it, etc which due to the police grabbing him and reading him his charges is nothing new to him.

>>134 You can't unwind the past, but you can observe the present. Worry not about "should've"s and "coulda"s. Focus on how A and B are treating you. A was your friend and he ditches you just cause you didn't suck his dick, figuratively speaking. Neither A nor B should have held you accountable to anything at all since you weren't there. The way I see it, you aren't to blame. You said the wrong things and made the wrong choices, but those were wrong choices done purely unintentionally on your end, you never could have known how they would have ended from what I hear. I would have expected more out of some charismatic people-person who can read people like a book, but you aren't that, and that's OK. Be glad you aren't friends with A anymore since he showed you his true colors. He isn't a true friend, and neither is B from the sound of it. B sounds like he was just taking advantage of the situation and was never assaulted, but I can't say for certain since I wasn't there and I don't know your friends. tl;dr losing friends can hurt but it isn't the end, either find new friends or steel your resolve and go without friends, they usually just drag you down or backstab you unless you get lucky. t. someone who has 'friends', I use the apostrophes because they wouldn't ever stand up for me but they put on airs like they would. They never listen to me and I'm usually the butt of their jokes, but sometimes they're tolerable. I tried to help them but they turned me away so I won't stand up for them if the time comes.
>>135 Thank you, This helps a lot.

Untold history Anonymous 07/16/2020 (Thu) 18:39:36 No.133 [Reply] [Last]
I found this video about a really knowledgeable man trying to spread the untold true history, since as we know the history is written by the winner : https://www.bitchute.com/video/cH9h736TwcLi/ It got me my mind firing, what we think we know about this world's history might be a lie. What do you think about it ?

Is this true?
>>79 lesbians can't have sex also lesbians dont exist
>>79 It does forbid it, but only specifically by Paul in the New Testament. In Old Testament times it was sort of a moot point because women were always under the coverture of a man; first their father then their husband. They generally would never have even got the chance to try lesbian sex even if they had wanted to.
>>81 >Paul in the New Testament Where?
>>81 Putting Romans 1:26,27 next to Deuteronomy 23:17,18 indicates it's refering to whores.
>>84 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. It says "their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:". Obviously their natural use refers to natural sexual relations. If this isn't obvious then verse 27 makes it so, "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman". What the men were doing is like what the women were doing. This is a clear condemnation lesbianism.

the "problem" of free will Anonymous 04/29/2020 (Wed) 03:35:18 No.21 [Reply] [Last]
i say problem in the sense that it is a common argument i hear from normalfags in trying to spread the gospel. the argument is generally > God is omnipotent > omnipotence implies foreknowledge of all events > free will is your ability to choose otherwise >therefore, your decisions cannot be free as you can only choose what God has already foreseen.

>>71 Perfection is a joke, anyone who actually has a job can tell you that.
>>70 >Listen bro, I believe in God but He has a lot of defending and explaining to do Himself. What makes you think you're even in a position to even understand what the world from God's perspective even looks like? None of us even knows what our neighbors do behind closed doors. We barely even know the details of our own lives and yet you think such creatures as us are able to even stand in a position to demand God defend Himself? We are the sinners who must justify our lives to God, explain to Him why we have been liars, why we have hated and gritted our teeth and deceived and murdered and raped and committed atrocity after atrocity against one another, generation after generation and did so happily and with gladness in our hearts to do so. > I don't care about that cliché'd old ranting about repenting, Repentance is the heart of the gospel. If you are too prideful to humble yourself before God and recognize that you are in need of His forgiveness then you do not know Christ or have any idea why He had to go to the cross on our behalf. > love is supposed to be a two-way street supported by clear communication between the two parties. Where do you get your idea of what love is or isn't? Is it your own invention? Are you using the prevailing idea of love that you find in your culture? Or do you derive your notion of what love really means from the God who framed the universe and who invented the very concept of love in eternity past. You have your cart in front of your horse, God sets the standard and what is true and right is defined by consistency with that standard. You would not even have the capacity to conceptualize the idea of love if it were not in God's purpose to allow humans to express and know love. to think that you then have a greater understanding of what love is than that God who invented love and supplied our capacity to know it then you are a fundamentally irrational person. > What kind of Stockholm syndrome do you need to have when you endure all that suffering but you still believe He's without faults? Because I have spent some time to search my own heart, to understand my own motivations with the decisions I've made and actions I've done in my life and I know that I am a sinner, I am evil, fundamentally there is a part of me that is broken, always has been broken and until the resurrection to come always will be broken and I have no excuse to give to justify myself in front of the High Judge of all of space and time. I have no evidence to bring forth to excuse my thoughts and deeds, I have no clever arguments that makes the things I've done or desired good. I am without excuse and I need God to have unconditional mercy on me or I will be justly and rightly condemned to hell. If you do not see that the same is true for you then your pride is getting in the way of you seeing how bad things really are. > If anything I've got some design improvement ideas for Him after he wiped us all out and tries again. And this line confirms that thought. Humble yourself, repent and have faith.
weird
i'd suggest you look into Molinism or any number of theologies similar to it which posit a coexistence of "human will" and "God's foreknowledge" I know at least from talking to a friend (who is considerably more Reformed than me) that believes in a "coexistence" of will and foreknowledge. But i'd have to go ask him again what exactly he believes, it's been a while.
>>73 I like you Anon. You seem to have a good grasp on real faith.

CHRIST IS RISEN How are you enjoying your Paschal season, anons?
The day of the Ascension is coming close. My Paschal season was fine, all things considered. I attempted to read more of the bible, since I am quite lacking in that department.

>1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. >2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. >But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. >9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” >11 “No one, sir,” she said. >“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.” Why did Jesus stop the thot from being patrolled? Was Jesus a simp? pic unrelated.
>“Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” >"Well, that's you isn't it Jesus? Here's a stone, let's see how good your throwing arm is." >And Lo, Jesus did hit the woman square in the face.
