There's japan, which appeals to my weeb tastes, but only a few percent of the population there are christian. I'm not sure about the other countries.

>when 90% of local "churches" are just a version of one of these four caricatures For many are called, but few are chosen.
>>719 >China has a lot of them, but it's china, and I'm no commie. Well, neither are the 100M+ Christians in China Anon. The issue for them is the lack of adequate females b/c One-Child policy for decades. However, if you're White and not an absolute slob, then you wouldn't have much difficulty finding a female of some sort b/c White. >but only a few percent of the population there are christian It's not even 1%, actually. They are literally one of the least-reached people, and probably #1 in in the first-world nations.

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.
>>27 Pascha isn't until tomorrow, though.

What is your favorite chapter/verse in the Bible?
5 posts omitted.
The one that I was saved when I read it once. John 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
>>659 >Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. >Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. This is the gospel of salvation.

>>670 1 Peter 1:23-25 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

So anon, what form of church governance do you support?
Open file (18.70 KB 398x311 roger01.jpg)
Local congregationalism. As the New Testament church, according to the Bible, always has. See the Biblical-based beliefs of the peaceful church of baptist, "anabaptist," and various other names called (i.e. vaudois, petrobrusian, &c.) in history. They firmly held to local congregational polity through out history. What this means is no state-sponsored church or belief system (i.e. such as wokeness as we see today). Read the original petition for the colonial charter for Rhode Island as obtained for it in 1663 by Dr. John Clarke, who is also a minister of the church (and helped to initiate Christ's ministry in America, starting in 1638). The following is the version recorded in H.R. Doc. No. 546, 28th Cong., 1st Sess. (1844). >"That they might be permitted to hold forth a lively experiment that a most flourishing civil state may stand, and best be maintained, with a full liberty in religious concernments; and that true piety, rightly grounded upon gospel principles, will give the best and greatest security to sovereignty, and will lay in the hearts of men the strongest obligation to true loyalty." This statement is engraved on the side of the state house in Providence, Rhode Island today. It represents the concept, that was later enshrined in the Constitution, of "soul liberty" or "freedom of conscience." That is, the right of each individual to live, worship (and vote) according to their conscience, and not be forced to pay "church taxes" for any kind of preaching position that is paid for by taxes, as the "puritans" of Salem, as well as the church of England, originally had it. Today, the preachers of "woke" likewise need to step down from their positions.
>>662 >putting anabaptists in the same category as regular baptists and the vaudois What's the antidote to a congregation convinces itself of heretical and blasphemous things?

>>674 See Douglass, writing the following in A summary, historical and political, of the first planting, progressive improvements, and present state of the British settlements in North-America (1748), pp. 445-446. >The Anabaptists, at their first appearance in New-England, were enthusiastically troublesome; they chose among themselves the meanest of the people for their ministers; they call themselves Baptists by way of abbreviation of the name Anabaptists... >Some of them vainly imagine, that they ought to be called by that name in a peculiar manner; their baptism being the only scriptural baptism: they would not communicate with persons baptized in infancy only; if occasionally in a congregational meeting, upon a child's being presented for baptism, they withdrew, to the great disturbance of the congregation: fines were enacted; [Obadiah] Holmes, because he would not pay his fine, was whipped thirty lashes. As you can see here, the baptists in the time period of around 1534 (when the Münster Rebellion took place) until around 100 years later when some of their churches made a confession of faith (the 1st and 2nd London Confessions) in the following century. During the middle ages, the baptists were called all kinds of different names by the state church in order to malign them. One such name, especially after 1534 as we discussed, was "anabaptist" because it was easy to paint them as seditionists. The people behind the Münster Rebellion in 1534 were crazy people who believed that their leader received new revelations from God, but the rebellion was quickly crushed. Ever since then, peaceful baptists were associated with the doings of those men, and many were burned at the stake under this color by state authorities for their peaceful testimony of Jesus. Before 1534, they were called by various other names by their accusers. But in reality, they represent the ancient church of Jesus Christ from the first century, being the original branch from which the Roman church split away from at the Synod of Arles in 313. I would not confuse these men with either the rebels of Münster, who were madmen; or the modern-day people who also call themselves "anabaptists," which is a distinct group that formed later from the Swiss brethren, with separate beliefs and tenets apart from the Bible. It's confusing, I know. But the real Christians were called "rebaptizers" (not that they called themselves that) long before this, as early as the year 413, when they were outlawed as such by Honorius, who was one of the emperors and was pro-infant baptism. Hopefully, that all makes sense. Attached is an example of this usage of the term during the original counter-reformation against peaceful Christians and churches.

Baptist Minister Thanks Joe Biden for Funding Planned Parenthood, Calls Abortion a “Sacred Decision” Anonymous 01/30/2021 (Sat) 19:25:28 No.407 [Reply]
A Baptist minister who works as an abortion activist praised President Joe Biden this week for forcing American taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups. The Rev. Katey Zeh, CEO of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, told the Huffington Post that protecting “choice” is a moral issue and one that Biden has a responsibility to support. “As people of faith who support reproductive freedom, we believe that everyone has the capacity to make sacred decisions about their bodies, lives, families and futures,” Zeh told the news outlet. “Any attempt to control, restrict or interfere with that decision is reproductive oppression.” She thanked Biden for rescinding the Mexico City Policy, a pro-life rule President Donald Trump put in place to defund the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which kills babies in abortions around the world and lobbies to legalize abortions in pro-life countries. Biden’s order on Thursday will restore millions of taxpayer dollars to the billion-dollar abortion industry. Planned Parenthood and MSI Reproductive Choices (formerly Marie Stopes International) are two recipients of international aid funding, and they abort millions of unborn babies across the world every year. https://www.lifenews.com/2021/01/29/baptist-minister-thanks-joe-biden-for-funding-planned-parenthood-calls-abortion-a-sacred-decision/

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Blessed be the Holy Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for ever, and ever, and ever.

Are the majority of anoncafe users people who profess to be christians? I am asking because /christian/ is one of the top boards.
Overboard user here, not Christian (or any other 'major' religion). It's naturally hard to answer that question since most people don't talk about their religion outside of /christian/ and /islam/.
>>629 Understood. Thank you.
