As of right now we only have three banners. I'd like there to be more, and I'm sure someone somewhere has saved the banners from previous iterations of /christian/, 8chan and otherwise. If you have them, post them here, or feel free to make your own as well! The only requirement is that they are 300x100 and of high quality.

>>25715 I've skimmed his work, if he truly was that wound up about it, he could've moved to Greece. But he didn't, he was just the first of (un?)witting jewish tools used to further split the church. You do know that the Orthodox are the only ones who still don't have women clergy and denounce gays? Since our clergy marry, we also don't have closet homos in our ranks like our Roman brothers have to deal with. >What do you mean? Are you saying that people who agree with what Luther wrote are like those guys who said they were "of Paul" instead of Christ? Yes, for even St. Paul himself had to tell them to stop it, since He was only in the Service of Christ. Notice that all of the ones you quote are Roman Orders, of whom none but the Jesuits are active, and their fruits are very well known, just as any Roman Catholic what they think of them. >Point about Pope JPII So you mean to say that because of rhetoric attributed to him, he acted on that prose? Words without deeds are as faith without works. >>25721 >>25719 >Brings Up Pious X >Conflating Orthodoxy with rebellion >Expecting the Orthodox to care what any Pope has to say. I love you dude, but if you're just gonna fling crap rhetoric, preddit is down the hall. We don't take anyone seriously if they blaspheme, including our own batch of infiltrating masons in Mr. Bart and Elpidophoros. Have a nice day.
>>25706 It was nice, only was in the area for a little bit and only got to enjoy it a few times, the priest actually retired which is a shame as he was the only priest in the US that had permission to use that liturgy
Orthodox Andrew Wilson made Matt Dillahunty rage quit recently. Afterwards the Q&A turned into Andrew vs the room. Basically, Matt made liberals explode because he said a man is not a woman. 😂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8U34ezKvrU
>>25944 >Matt made liberals explode Crap, I meant to type Andrew
Fellow Orthodox how accurate is this Bing response? I have been playing around more with its AI features and I asked it to create a rebuttal for me. The prompt: >A rebuttal against the claim that Orthodox Christians use the Church canons and Church fathers the same way rabbinic Jews use the Talmud. The response: <The claim that Orthodox Christians use the Church canons and Church fathers the same way rabbinic Jews use the Talmud is based on a misunderstanding of both traditions. The Church canons and Church fathers are not sources of authority in themselves, but rather witnesses to the apostolic tradition that is preserved and transmitted by the Holy Spirit in the Church. The Church canons and Church fathers are not binding on every Orthodox Christian in every situation, but rather provide guidance and direction for the faithful in different contexts and circumstances. The Church canons and Church fathers are not meant to be interpreted literally or legalistically, but rather spiritually and pastorally, taking into account the whole of Scripture, Tradition, and Reason. The Church canons and Church fathers are not static or fixed, but rather dynamic and flexible, allowing for development and adaptation in response to new challenges and opportunities. The Talmud, on the other hand, is a collection of rabbinic interpretations and discussions of the Torah (the first five books of the Hebrew Bible) and other Jewish laws and customs. The Talmud is considered by rabbinic Jews to be an authoritative source of Jewish law and theology, derived from an oral tradition that goes back to Moses. The Talmud is binding on every observant Jew in every situation, unless there is a clear contradiction or exception. The Talmud is meant to be interpreted literally and legalistically, with every word and letter having significance and implications. The Talmud is static and fixed, not allowing for any change or innovation that contradicts or deviates from its teachings. Therefore, it is clear that Orthodox Christians use the Church canons and Church fathers in a very different way than rabbinic Jews use the Talmud. The former are testimonies to a living tradition that is guided by the Holy Spirit, while the latter are interpretations of a written tradition that is governed by human reason. The former are flexible and adaptable to various situations and cultures, while the latter are rigid and uniform for all times and places. The former are spiritual and pastoral in their application, while the latter are literal and legalistic in their enforcement.

Advent Penance Anonymous 12/01/2023 (Fri) 05:50:43 ID: fa167b No.26032 [Reply]
Advent is almost upon us in the West (in the East they have already begun their Nativity Fast). In this time of preparation and of commemoration of that period between the Fall of our first parents and the coming of the Messias, may this board observe the season in a spirit of prayer and penance.

>>25736 Guess they never heard of Saint Peter's cross.
>>25908 Gotta love how at any point they considered forcing other people to hoist their silly flag, and then hosting a protest when they don't comply, as problematic. No, it's resisting their coercion what's problematic. >>25956 Yes. Christianity was more popular among hellenized jews than among hebrew jews. The Septuagint is *older* than the masoteric text. The oldest Tanakh is from the XI century; the oldest Christian Bible, in Greek, from the IV. No Christian, no matter the denomination, should discard parts of Scripture just because the hebrew jews did.
>>25956 I find it hard to believe God wouldnt preserve the original Hebrew in favour of a translation of a translation based on a a tradition that it's somehow inspired that isn't binding.
>>26013 The original Hebrew of which texts though? The canonization of scripture among the Israelites was a jumbled drawn out process, not unlike the Christian canonization. The various OT arrangements among early Christian communities was simply the continuation of whatever the Jewish community in that area most often used. The reason the Ethiopian Orthodox canon is larger than most is because they carried over the OT from the Ethiopian Jewish community.

I found an instance where the Jews undermined Jesus, it's a good evidence of The difference between the Jews as a race and Jesus as a God.

Hating the LGBT Community but not gay individuals Sperit 08/03/2022 (Wed) 07:54:27 No.15565 [Reply] [Last]
So I am sort of Bi although a devout Christian (Yes call me a fag IDK) and I am fucking annoyed with the LGBT community to no ends. I have a friend who is a Lesbian Atheist that agrees with a lot of morality that Christian ideology brings and even she notices that the LGBT community is self sabatoging. They like to present themselves as a community that wants to love their partners but in practice they are just constantly hooking up with one another. The LGBT community should have gatekept more in my opinion or needs to be shamed when they behave in a sort of manner. Like I personally don't give a shit if 2 guys wanna slam the ass and you are free to disagree with me but I do think that the fucking pride parade types are fucking atrocious. Its like they revolve their entire lifestyle arround being gay as if it was their own religion. I even have a theory that men who become women are the main vectors of disease because they believe that the more men wanna have sex with them then the more they pass and are validated. IDK where the fuck this rant is going but I just wanted to talk about that shit. Personally I have a lot of gay friends but they are almost always very much against the gay community and are Christian themselves, asside from that one girl.

>>22437 Koresh. yes, wanted to be left alone, was different so people thought him strange, and traded in firearms to support his cult. Perfect target for the BATF, who needed something spectacular for congress to continue funding. The BATF went in shooting, the Davidians defended themselves, and the FBI came in with a tank and killed them all. No survivors. Then they destroyed all the evidence of their crimes. Clintons AG said it was "for the children". A bald faced lie, and given that she killed all the Children I'm surprised the American people believed it. If they hid their sin of murdering children with the lie that they were saving the children, then there is nothing they wouldn't lie about, including his wives.
>>22443 i think they did it because they were afraid of armed, self sufficient, Christians who rejected the world not because of funding. If it was for funding then why shoot first? Ideally theyd do things as peaceful as possible. idk, could have been an accidental discharge. I agree with you nonetheless.
Most here are self centered-narcissists they don't care about guiding the lgbt towards Christ. Don't bother.
>>26024 Matthew 7:5
>>26025 Some truth in there though... I don't wanna help them. Helping them's illegal for me now I imagine. Why not be more like us Europoors anon. You make of man an island when you live here, it's everyone for themselves - moral authority as far as society is concerned is gone. How do you God botherers deal with latent homosexuality? I.e. the sort who've always been that way? I think most of them are a social contagion that can be unlearned but there is a minority where I can't see how you'd ever stop the flambuoyance in them.

Roll Call! We are a 1/3 of the way through November. How is everyone holding up?
>>25862 not really
>>25897 Wait what happened to him?
How did everyone do this November? If you didn't make it, did you at least fast to some degree that made it noticeable in contrast to the previous months? If so, keep that hard work going. If not, no worries ask for God's help in this endeavor and keep trying. The evil one doesn't want us to try at all.
>>26034 Got through most of the month only because I was sick and it killed my libido. Failed hard every day this week. Need to pray for forgiveness and then get back up again.

Hello Brothers and Sisters in Christ. Like many of you I myself am struggling with pornography addiction and have been trying to beat this illness for the better part of 3 years now. I'm dedicating this thread to all my other brothers in arms out there who are fighting the good fight against the wiles of the devil, Lucifer, and his legion of degeneracy he throws our way. I'll be using this thread as both a catalogue of my own experiences, so that they may be used by others for their own benefit, and as a place to store, discuss, and share data, tips, and motivation so as to help us addicts overcome our desire so that we may enjoy life as God intended with clarity of mind and spirit.

If a spiritual entity has sex with you, have you sinned? It doesn't sound like it should cause sin since you didn't do it.
>>26026 Like in a dream? If it is involuntary than no, but watch your heart because if you begin to desire it to happen again then you will be sinning.
How do i get rid of demons? if i have to caste them out then how do i do it?
>>26028 To add to this question, how do i know if i'm dealing with demons or Schizophrenia?
>>26028 >>26029 I would advise talking with a priest because they are trained to discern such things in these cases. Since you are aware of these things, it sounds like oppression instead of possession. I think most people pass through some degree of oppression in their lives. I would advise spending more time in prayer and fast from any sinful or scandalous activities. But definitely get in touch with a priest or pastor with exorcism experience. They would know when to rule put mental health causes.
