With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.

Are people inherently good or bad? Anonymous 05/10/2022 (Tue) 16:31:37 No.10823 [Reply]
Does God's good creation exist within us or does original sin override that?

>>15749 damn right. fuck this board, i put in all the time i did just to get screwed over by the coward BO. Let raiders shit up the board idfc.
>>15750 huh huh?
>>10826 so i have to read the wikia myself on wrath of sin? Maybe there s no good reason to know those either. Also i guess when god gets angry he can gamble everyone off to satan to job... and thinks everyone is aa blessed as job. But i guess he knows too if you ll turn. And win anyway. It never needed to care, nor is it capable to care. Guess the gods are doomed by itself too.
>>10826 Guess the magical world isnt very magical either Otherwise satan would just be resetted... or maybe the gods like their rituals... and will sacrifice anything for it for "their own spiritual benefits"
Since a tigwr isnt a lion, guess god dont make all equal... so when flood comes, one will die, the other swims. But to not hate is an easy thing, they say, True. Then god should have won against iyself... or magic dont exist...and he hath created rocks heavier than itself... satan. Or maybe hw nevwr could make rocks that is heavier...and thats why it is sloppy af.

is christianity against seeking personal growth? Anonymous 07/25/2022 (Mon) 18:11:44 No.14721 [Reply]
I want to try re-start/return to being a christian but I feel the attitude of "this world is vanity",etc.is against excercise,pursuing the sciences and even financial develpment,which if properly used,benefits all humans. am I just falling for memes? can I be a succesful, harmonious and well-studying person and pious at the same time?

>>14721 It's a false dichotomy, the world is vanity but it gives you a sense of proportion so if you pursue financial gain it doesnt consume you so that you don't become a spiritual J*w.
>>14793 good is not always is because god dont always use oxford dictionary
Inbthe beginning god doesnt want you to eat the forbiddwn fruit because it ll make you know good and evil so naturally it just dont want you to know and just follows and change the world's libraries every 50 minutes and if you fail you ll fall like the incas and when time begun god didnt just drop a book you have to write dictionaries yourself and then have the mayans hunt and kill you so you know "good" What i m saying is I guess god wont win against itself otherwise it can fight against its anguish but really it just gamble with satan and then now satan has the universe lol
The gods are sitting on poor people and unless its noah or jobs generally it s always fail so everyone is actually samsons? Why cant i carry houses Why does noah get 300 bends and i am 5000? How come able is patient and cain isnt Do you create all equally? Then why does the tiger eat more than lambs I guess the saints are desperate... maybe they ve always been olympians only

♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍 Matthew 22 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Galatians 5 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. ♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍 the music thread is gone so I'm posting these by themselves instead. At my assembly today it was reminded that ALL the law is fulfilled and HANGS on the commandment of love. How much do we make sure we're right with the law and doing the right thing and we ignore the actual focus of God and his will from the beginning his commandment. Death experiences have told us of the great love when in the light of God. Many of us have known moments when we have been put in front of God's love and how much we want to live in it forever and how much we will live in it forever.

>>15969 You're welcome :)
I hope everyone is trying their best to get believers gathered in your area. We need to be gathering together in the actual world and sticking together and accomplishing things. I'm struggling myself to do this. Lots of people just want their job and secular friends. I only want Christian lovers and to be with believers and handing out New Testaments and living together. And that is too much to ask, indeed. I don't wanna be on the internet it makes me break out in a rash and I have nothing else to do. Indeed try and form real life groups.

Does Christianity truly support globalism/communism? Anonymous 02/26/2022 (Sat) 19:45:40 No.4633 [Reply] [Last]
This sentiment is shared throughout pagan and other anti-christian circles.

>Does Christianity truly support globalism/communism? No. Not with the colloquial or the proper definitions of those terms. Origin denominations like Orthodoxy outright support sovereignty for each region complete with local translation (as accurately made as possible) and local jurisdiction which goes against the globalist narrative. An international court (international gathering of patriarchs or ecumenical council) is not globalist it is a system to ensure the sovereignty of each autocephalous region. Globalism implies a one-world government, not a voluntary court system when two brothers fight on a mass scale. Charity is not the same as communism unless you're some communist yahoo trying to subvert the religion for political reasons. Neither is taking care of your parents or paying into the community; all concepts that originated under Classical Liberal capitalist systems created around the teachings of the church before the commies tried to co-opt the terms two centuries later.

Genesis + Biblical Creation Anonymous 12/26/2021 (Sun) 17:45:50 No.2178 [Reply] [Last]
This thread is for discussion and the sharing information critical of evolution, old earth, attempts to allegorize the early chapters of Genesis, etc. I will be posting some basic info critical of (Neo-)Darwinism shortly.

Evolution is paganism. Simply looking at the Hindu myth of the ten avatars of Vishnu—the Dashavatara—will prove this. First the god Vishnu was a fish, and then a turtle, and then a boar, and then a man-beast, and then a dwarf, and then a man (and thereafter the man becomes more ‘civilized’). Ancient Greek pagan philosophy also has elements of Darwinism. Empedocles, who believed in vegetarianism, reincarnation and a cyclical universe driven by two forces of ‘Love’ and ‘Strife’, also believed that at certain periods disembodied organs and parts were assembled through the influence of Love, creating different creatures, which were then selected among by natural selection. Similarly, Anaximander believed that man once came out ofbl fish-like beings. Abiogenesis is no different than the idea of Zeus throwing a lightning bolt at a rock and creating humans from it. Speaking of Zeus, UFOs and aliens as ‘highly-evolved’ extraterrestrials is simply a modern ‘scientific’ recasting of pagan pantheons of ‘gods’ who come down and abduct women, spread spiritual wisdom, and live in the clouds. The ancient pagan myths of evolution and aliens have been combined with old heresies, such as chiliasm, and one merely has to look at movies to see how the idea of the aliens coming and visiting earth is framed as a sort of Luciferian ‘second coming’ of the pagan deities to earth.
My grandpa was a sea sponge and my distant relative is a carrot. Just straight Science™ facts. Bats are actually amazing all 1,200 species. From giant flying foxes to tiny bumble bee bats. Only one species drinks blood. Different abilities and appearances. And you know where they all evolved from? Bats. Yeah. They've got bat code. They do not have turtleshell code or whale code. They are bats of the bat kind. The modern world has been able to record instances of rapid speciation but we don't see nonsense and junk. And bats of course there's a bit in here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHRYnm_J4ts Monkey skulls can easily be turned into whatever the viewer wants. Plenty of monkey skulls today look similar to humans in fact many monkies today look similar to humans in general especially in the face but they are nothing like man, it wasn't that long ago bits of a Rhesus Macaque skull was promoted as another 'missing link' and drawn as another sasquatch. Once you go past the monkey world the connection completely falls apart to wherever the sasquatch evolved from. Evolutionist tout evidence as much as can fit in about a pickup truck or a bathtub and that's assuming it's all not fraudulent which given the history they don't deserve that assumption. Of all the fossil record, evolutionist hold on to scraps which they impose their imagination on. There would have been many many species of every kind including the ape, the monkey a great animal man would have shared Paradise with. THEY MAKE A MONKEY! RIGHT OUT OUTTA ME! IT MAKES FOR FUNKY BIOLOGY! I'M NOT THE KID OF SOME HOMINID! WHO COMES FROM A LIZARD! WHO'S MAMA WAS A FISH!
>>15936 Ape skulls are actually very different from human skulls once you start measuring them. A chimps skull for example is set at a heavy angle from upper lip to forehead where as human skulls are all 90 degree with only minor exception

Defeating sexual desires Anonymous 11/04/2021 (Thu) 19:15:55 No.1789 [Reply] [Last]
Hello anons. My heart is somewhat heavy as I write this, I do not have anyone that I feel comfortable sharing this with so I am coming here under the cover of anonymity to exchange my thoughts and seek yours on this subject. Given that: Masturbation is a sin Sex outside of marriage is a sin Engaging in prostitution is a sin As a man I have a natural sex drive I would like help and advice on defeating my sexual desires without committing sin. If I abstain from masturbation, I can refrain from engaging in sexuality for around a period of a week with little difficulty. After that initial 1 week period, it starts to encompass my whole life. I have an erection when I wake up every morning, and I get more throughout the day, at least one an hour and more if I have to interact with any girl under 30. I pray for help in keeping the sexual thoughts away, but it feels like I'm fighting a losing battle and I will relapse at some point no matter what. The longest I've been able to abstain from anything sexual was when I was an atheist and I lasted around a year. After a period of a few months, paradoxically my whole life was concerned with sex, I was not having orgasms however the only thing I had on my mind every day was "I need to find a girl to have sex with" (which never worked), everything was secondary to that. It culminated with me getting cock-teased by a girl I was exchanging with for around a week, getting fed up when I realized I was just getting taken along for a ride then seeking the services of a prostitute, which broke my abstinence and made me lose my virginity, if that concept even exists for a man. I regret the choices I made. After this chapter in my life, I concluded that the healthiest thing to do was to masturbate once a month to get it out of my system and to be able to live my life without being entranced by sex all the time. Eventually I relapsed and was engaging with porn at least 10 times a week, until I found the faith which helped knock it back down to something more reasonable like 2-4 times a month. However, sin is sin and I would like to be fully rid of it. I know that the simplest answer is to marry a girl, whoever that does not appear to be possible for me (it appears that my fate is to be an incel which I've come to terms with), so it seems like I've come to an impasse. I can't masturbate without committing sin, and I don't have a way to relieve myself of those sexual desires legitimately. However, if I don't relieve myself of it, it quickly starts to take over my life (I had begun to call the action of masturbation "satiating the beast" in my head). I don't know what to do. I remember seeing this anon who castrated himself on old 8chan years ago and thought he had lost his mind then, though now every day I start to understand more and more why he wanted to be rid of his sexual desires. Additional question: Why did God give me (and other men) such a strong sex drive and at the same time put me and a lot of other men (40% of men under 30 reported no sex in the past year in a study around 2018 I believe and that was before the corona lockdowns which must have made that number shoot up even more) in an era where it is extremely difficult to rid yourself of this desire without committing sin?

I'm trying to fight against being an evil person, but it's impossible if God doesn't even want to shine a single ray of his light into my life. I hope I can find a way to become mentally/emotionally stable.

I don't want to watch those weird sex films because they'rean experience ruiner and same thing over and over. Not even plot that is written better than Amy Schumer's terrible humor will make me watch it. I would rather watch The Room than watch those stupid sex videos.
Currently 8 months into nofap, except now I think it's affecting my physical health. Without ejaculation/discharge the prostate becomes engorged/backed up with excess seminal fluid that affects everything else surrounding it, the most common cause being frequent urination, and could also have other negative health side effects. It also causes a "buzzing" in my nether regions and makes getting aroused a lot easier, which is obviously bad for nofap. Normally the body resolves this through wet dreams so it discharges on its own, but for me those are few and far between. So what I'm looking for is some way to "clear" my system that doesn't involve voluntary orgasm or seeking pleasure. Do I have any options here?

Personally i am a Christian but this image stumps me, If God already knows our future why would he need to test us? Along with other common arguments for the existence of God and the problem of evil. It's not perfect but there is some good arguments there. Do any of you have any counter arguments, specifically to "If God already knows our future why would he need to test us"? I heard from an apologist about a book about freewill called "Chosen but free" on predestination vs Freewill, has any one here read it?

>>15241 Good, because a lot of people think that man made paradise is possible in this depraved world.
>>15039 hmm, never thought of it like that.
Didn't Aquinas solve this already? God allows evils because he will make Good out of it. Also Epicurus asserts that because God does not prevent evil therefore he is not loving, yet, Epicurus does not define what loving is and has no way to demonstrate this to be true. So by definition it cannot be a true statement
>>15035 Why would God prevent evil? what is it about evil that is more important than God? You say God is not good for allowing evil to exist, but how do you define good without evil? God separates the light from the darkness. Christ is the light. Evil exists precisely so the Lord can overcome it. We cannot overcome evil but through Christ the saviour of our souls. And we are born again in the Lord and gain a reward in Heaven through belief in Christ Emmanuel the light of the world.

I remember reading an old book about some christian topic,i dont remeber much(it was one of those old hand-written non-transcribed books from the 18th century from google books)where it said king david was like 1,60 cm tall. I unironically think david was a dwarfmaxxed who looked like this(short height-big muscle mass since he hunted bears bare-handed). and thats pretty awesome.
>>15880 It's easier to get swole with short stature since the muscle bellies aren't stretched out and you don't need to eat as much food alot of pro bodybuilders are short to average height, the ones that are above 6ft are usually an exception and have to consume more and work harder.
>>15885 Im only 1,70cm but lately Im lifting very fanatically, I want to reach thickmode (not fat;thick).Im not even interested in grills, I do it for doing it sake
