memento mori Anonymous 05/14/2022 (Sat) 10:05:17 No.11088
How present should the "remeberance" of death be in my life? Should I literally think i may die in my sleep each night? do i have to become more brave and life a more brilliant life,without fear and cowardice,knowing i will certainly die?
You should fear God so that you don't sleep without being conscious of your sins and ask for forgiveness and repentence every prayer. If you are a family man, you would be a fool to live without care, as your calling is to provide and be on this earth for those who need you. If you are single and called by God to serve in a dangerous manner, then live without any worry because God has put you there and your life may end, but your purpose is to die for the sake that others may come to the faith.
>>11088 you will die when you die, there is nothing in this world worth being afraid of. "Time keeps going by and I know that I'm dying I won't need to cry in my death - it's satisfying"
>>11088 Always think of death. It will hard to be attached to sin and the things of this world if you recognize their fundamental impermanence. Lay up your treasures in heaven. St. Anthony the Great advised this himself, as have many other great saints.
>>11088 Try reading Meditations by Aurelius. >http://classics.mit.edu/Antoninus/meditations.html
>>11143 not appropriate. this is a board about christianity, not esoteric philosophy. a christian cannot be a stoic.
>>11154 >a christian cannot be a stoic. Christians are whiny emotional bitches so no of course you can't
>>11156 if you think that way, why are you on this board? if you've chosen not to be a christian, that's your choice, but you might be happier somewhere else.
>>11143 >>11154 >Aurelius >Esoteric Do you even know what 'esoteric' means? Aurelius was not esoteric, his works were common knowledge. They are still widely studied today, including by Christians.
>>11154 Why can't a Christian be a person who can endure pain or hardship without showing their feelings or complaining? If anything having faith in God would help you endure hardship.
>>11170 I would suggest you might enjoy reading Foxe's Book of Martyrs 1&2 Anon.
>>11170 4 Maccabees from the Apocrypha is also about this
