Just finished memorizing the prayer against temptation/the prayer of St. Benedict.

2018-02-09 04:16:24 UTC

Crux sacra sit mihi lux
Non draco sit mihi dux
Vade retro, satana
Nonquam suade mihi vana
Sunt mala quae libas
Ipse venena bibas

2018-02-09 04:17:13 UTC

2018-02-09 04:17:21 UTC

nourish the soul and the body

2018-02-09 04:17:39 UTC

I did not.

2018-02-09 04:17:49 UTC

More or less meditated while repeating it over and over.

2018-02-09 04:18:05 UTC

It was actually sort've an accident, the meditation.

2018-02-09 04:18:30 UTC

forge the flesh i was so tired today but i still did my workout

2018-02-09 04:18:36 UTC

I clasped a cross in one hand and put my other over my heart and recited it with my eyes closed for about thirty minutes.

2018-02-09 04:18:50 UTC

very good

2018-02-09 04:19:27 UTC

The repetition coupled with the darkness almost lulled me into a bit of a trance.

2018-02-09 18:41:50 UTC

EPICCCCCCC

2018-02-13 05:08:16 UTC

Sounds cheesy but I knelt and prayed and asked for guidance, as I am in essentially a great crossroads in my life. I asked for insight into what God wanted of me, finished the prayer, and opened my bible at random. It led me to Mark 12:38, which is a warning about the practitioners of the law.

I then prayed again and asked God if this was a warning to me or simply advice as to what I should do, he directed me to Acts 17:4, which tells of a few Greek individuals who were devout and followed Paul and Silas. I asked again what I ought to do with myself, asking for further wisdom, and I was subsequently directed to 1 Corinthians 13:13, which talks about the virtuosity of hope, faith, and charity, and that of the three, the greatest is charity.

2018-02-13 05:08:33 UTC

Well fellas. I think I'm high due for some charity work.

2018-02-13 05:22:46 UTC

It's sad how even in the dissident right, actually practicing your faith by doing things like praying is still seen as taboo or "uncool".

2018-02-13 07:13:16 UTC

turn the heat up in your house if you're gay, that way you get used to the flames of hell

2018-02-14 19:29:46 UTC

I had to go to the church down the road from the hate lair instead of the one 3 minutes from my college just to get one

2018-02-14 19:29:58 UTC

And it wasn’t even until after mass

2018-02-14 19:30:01 UTC

Very upsetting

2018-02-14 19:30:19 UTC

Oh and there was no parking because of all the lukewarm Catholics who only show up to get ashes

2018-02-14 19:30:23 UTC

Oy vey!

2018-02-14 21:00:10 UTC

Trad churches have confession before and during Mass

2018-02-14 21:17:13 UTC

2018-02-14 21:17:44 UTC

But it's only 3, 9 more hours to go

2018-02-14 21:21:22 UTC

Guys, I need some help. After praying to the Lord for guidance, I selected three random Bible verses to try and see what God wants me to see. The verses I chose were Numbers 5:4, Psalms 119:13 and Mark 10:42. Could anyone give me some interpretations of these verses and how their teachings' could be applied in real life?

2018-02-14 21:21:54 UTC

Also non-catholics do celebrate ash Wednesday

2018-02-14 21:30:52 UTC

2018-02-14 22:54:53 UTC

@Bret ok cheers mate

2018-02-14 23:06:56 UTC

@Fashnalist02#0300 that’s not really how God operates. You don’t get to demand he reveal himself to you

2018-02-14 23:07:30 UTC

Those verses could just hold their inherent value, nothing more

2018-02-14 23:16:32 UTC

@Fashnalist02#0300
Well, the first verse is speaking of the Israelites following the rule of God as pertains to Moses, a rule about the expelling of those with varying amounts of diseased skin.

The second is a declaration of message. A clear statement in Psalm about recitation of the law of God.

The last is part of a lesson taught by Christ dictating that those rulers which are outside the kingdom of God are Autarchs, who exert authority over their people, whereas within the kingdom of God, rulers are servants of their people.

Take with this what you will. Maybe He said something, maybe He didn't. Contrast these to your life and routines and see where it might fit in.

2018-02-15 02:19:13 UTC

@(((The George Borjas))) dude i look homeless

2018-02-15 02:27:57 UTC

Saint Alexius looked homeless despite being incredibly wealthy. He chose to donate all of his belongings to the poor and any wealth which he obtained he spent it on them.

2018-02-15 02:28:10 UTC

He lived under stairs that are now a relic in a chapel.

2018-02-15 02:28:40 UTC

*there is little fault in the taking of a humble visage*

2018-02-15 02:32:15 UTC

He definitely sounds like a saint to read up on

2018-02-15 17:32:12 UTC

@Broseph bit late, but I'm sure Jesus says somewhere in the Bible that if you truly believe and pray anything you want will be given to you

2018-02-15 20:11:47 UTC

No, not how it works. It’s not like a redemption system where you put in a prayer and you get out a miracle. Sometimes you get nothing in the temporary, sometimes God helps you out. Physical gifts should not be your motivation for worship

2018-02-15 20:12:44 UTC

Doesn't matter though pretty sure what he said is true

2018-02-15 21:29:34 UTC

@Broseph didn't ask for a physical gift I asked for spiritual guidance

2018-02-15 21:30:00 UTC

I was referring to anything of this temporal world

2018-02-15 21:38:32 UTC

@Broseph oh cool

2018-02-16 02:38:16 UTC

I never get spiritual guidance

2018-02-16 02:38:20 UTC

2018-02-16 02:38:36 UTC

Can someone tell me where watchmaker theology starts and ends?

2018-02-16 04:24:24 UTC

A defense of Lutheran Protestantism: Here's an important truth you'll hear us repeat over and over again. "Let Scripture interpret scripture." God's Word is in perfect agreement with itself (it's all God's Word) and will never contradict itself. That helps us whenever people want to use a stand-alone verse to claim something that is false. In order to stand confidently on an interpretation, the reader needs to find elsewhere in the Bible where the statement is confirmed/clarified. Human opinion, tradition, and speculation can be helpful, but they are not a substitute for God's Word. The only things we can know for certain are what God says in his Bible. So...
The Catholic church's assertion that Peter was the first Pope and that Jesus established the church through him and therefore is it is the church with sole and divine authority is not substantiated in Scripture anywhere. They point to a single place in the book of Matthew (16:13–20) to make this claim. 13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, β€œWho do people say the Son of Man is?” 14 They replied, β€œSome say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”15 β€œBut what about you?” [all the disciples] he asked. β€œWho do you say I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered, β€œYou are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” 17 Jesus replied, β€œBlessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

2018-02-16 04:24:33 UTC

Even though Jesus was clearly addressing all of his disciples, Peter, as he so often did, jumped in to answer for everyone. And Jesus replies, "Peter, you are blessed to believe this truth that I am the Messiah" (vs 17). He's blessed because saving faith in Jesus is the ONLY way to heaven. In fact, Jesus goes on to say that "the only way anyone can even make this confession of faith and believe it is true is because the knowledge that Jesus is the Messiah and the faith to believe it is a God-given gift." The Bible makes these points countless times. (e.g. John 3:16; Mark 16:16; John 20:31; Romans 10:17; Galatians 2:20 and many more)
Then Jesus speaks the key phrase used by the Catholic Church to establish their point. "You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church." There's something here in the Greek that is lost on us in the English translation. Jesus uses Peter's name, which in Greek is petros - a masculine noun that means loose rock or stone. But because Peter's name MEANS rock, Jesus uses a play on words to talk about the ROCK-solid confession Peter just made about Jesus being the Messiah. Since God knows what he's saying and Scripture is God's Word, it's always in perfect harmony with itself. That's why Jesus uses a DIFFERENT GREEK WORD to talk about the church so that we wouldn't get confused and think he was talking about Peter. He uses the word petra - a feminine noun that means rocky cliff, shelf or ledge of rock - "on this petra I will build my church." In language, those two words can't be connected or modifying each other in any way. They are different genders. There's simply no possible way to make what Jesus says about building his church also mean Peter.

2018-02-16 04:24:43 UTC

It's a simple play on words. Maybe an example would be if you were talking to someone named Joe Baker as you were headed to the store to pick up a dessert for a party. With a wink and a smile you could say, "Hey BAKER, I'm off to pick up a cake from the BAKER!" (Sorry, it's lame but hopefully helps make the point!) Joe wouldn't be confused by what you're saying because he understands langauge. In Greek, people really wouldn't have been confused by what Jesus said because Jesus didn't even use the same word - used two DIFFERENT words!
The rock that the gates of Hades can't overcome is the rock-solid confession of faith that Peter just finished making - that Jesus is the Son of God and the one who God promised (Messiah) to rescue the world (vs16). See Jesus' point? He asked the disciples "who do people say I am" (vs 13) because it's the most important question in life. And his disciples all mention what people thought of Jesus, that he was a highly esteemed and respected prophet. But that's not good enough for Jesus because believing that he's good and a prophet, doesn't mean that people believe he is their Savior from sin. Only believing that Jesus is the Savior is what actually saves people. (He even once told the story of a wise man who builds his house upon the rock (petra) and his house doesn't collapse - see Matthew 7:24.)
So, people who believe the same thing that Peter confessed to believe will be saved. That's why Jesus goes on to say, "on this rock I will build my church." His church isn't an institution or building. The Bible says many times that Jesus' church is made up of PEOPLE - all the people who believe that he is the Savior. In fact, he calls all of the people who make up his church "living stones (rocks) built together into a spiritual house" (1 Peter 2:4-5).

That's what builds Jesus' church. People sharing, studying, and growing in their faith about Jesus. That's the church that Jesus established on this earth. That's the goal Jesus had is saying "I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven, whatever you bind on earth...etc (vs 19). Heaven is closed to sinful people - it's locked. The only key that opens the doors of heaven to people is the beautiful message that our sin (the thing that has closed heaven) has been removed. Jesus carried our sins to the cross, received the punishment we deserved for them, and rose again to prove his and our innocence. Everytime we share that "good news" message with someone and they believe it, their sin is gone and heaven swings open for one more person.

There's so much more to be said here about those keys, but I'm out of time. I think the only other verse the Catholic church uses is John 21 where Jesus asks Peter to feed his sheep. Again, nothing about setting Peter up as the Pope or the head of the church, but simply restoring Peter after he had denied even knowing Jesus three times.

--- Pastor from a WELS Lutheran church

2018-02-16 05:54:43 UTC

This entire wall of text falls apart under the slightest scrutiny

2018-02-16 05:57:00 UTC

The original spoken language of Matthew 16:13 was Aramaic, not Greek. There was no masculine or feminine, just *Kepha.*

2018-02-16 06:00:56 UTC

And in the Greek translation, *Petros* and *Petra* had the same meaning. They just used *Petros* for Peter's name because *Petra* was the common word at the time but would have been improper for Peter's name.

2018-02-16 06:01:38 UTC

Luther was wise in his observation of the error and corruption of the church, but his following actions would fracture it causing what we have to day, a broken liturgical mess that won't be cleaned up without a massive catastrophe or miracle.

2018-02-16 06:54:58 UTC

So what is the Catholic teaching regarding salvation? How are people saved in Catholicism?

2018-02-16 06:55:45 UTC

Through the grace of, and subsequent faith in God. As well as repentance for any truly mortal sin.

2018-02-16 06:56:43 UTC

If you don't go to the Catholic church or confess to a priest, can you still be saved, according to Catholicism?

2018-02-16 06:57:33 UTC

Yes faith is what saves you

2018-02-16 06:57:36 UTC

The concept is that dying in a state or mortal sin puts you in jeopardy but I dont think the church says for certain what happens

2018-02-16 06:59:33 UTC

The biggest problem I find that many outside of the Catholic church have/had (including myself) aside from modern corruptions, is simply the fact that it seems too rigorous.

2018-02-16 06:59:43 UTC

Now as it pertains tot he history of the church,

2018-02-16 06:59:50 UTC

it has fought long and hard to reduce rigor,

2018-02-16 06:59:57 UTC

but it does not go by faith alone.

2018-02-16 07:00:10 UTC

For many centuries it had to safeguard doctrine from all sorts of heresies.

2018-02-16 07:00:19 UTC

Of course it's not only faith

2018-02-16 07:00:37 UTC

But if you lead a good life and have faith you will be saved

2018-02-16 07:00:44 UTC

Even if you're not in church

2018-02-16 07:00:52 UTC

Many would-be popes attempted rigorousness only as a means of gate keeping because they did not win the papacy.

2018-02-16 07:01:42 UTC

According to Wels Lutheran salvation is a gift from God freely given and if we have faith and accept the gift it is ours. Doing good works is our thanks for the gift of salvation, but works won't save us, according to the Lutheran doctrine.

2018-02-16 07:02:13 UTC

Correct, but again, *not works, nor faith, alone*

2018-02-16 07:02:18 UTC

the keyword being alone,

2018-02-16 07:02:21 UTC

it takes both.

2018-02-16 07:02:33 UTC

And in order to be a decent Christian, you must do both.

2018-02-16 07:03:27 UTC

As I was about to say, it is a rather large criticism of the church that it does too many earthly works and not enough spiritual, or that it lacks personal connection with God.

2018-02-16 07:03:39 UTC

A personal connection is entirely up to the person worshipping.

2018-02-16 07:03:45 UTC

The church is there to act as an authority,

2018-02-16 07:03:49 UTC

a governing body.

2018-02-16 07:04:05 UTC

It is no fault of theirs if a man turns away from God, if a man does not pursue him.

2018-02-16 07:04:27 UTC

It is their duty to bring them to God, but what might they do if they're simply rebuffed?

2018-02-16 07:05:03 UTC

The majority of rigor, and legalism as well as long held tradition within the church, is to prevent such a thing from happening.

2018-02-16 07:05:17 UTC

The ceremonies, the sacraments, the traditions,

2018-02-16 07:05:54 UTC

they must be actively pursued in order to help cultivate not only the idea, but in this earthly prison of ours, *a visage* of Christ.

2018-02-16 07:06:56 UTC

Protestantism seems nice, it seems good, and to a large degree it is within the traditions of northern Europeans, as well as Americans to partake in it. However we have seen the subsequent death of our own spirituality,

2018-02-16 07:07:07 UTC

and protestants themselves have fallen to chaos,

2018-02-16 07:07:13 UTC

and they have become mild.

2018-02-16 07:07:54 UTC

There was a poem written by a man where Christ comes back, and is in a Victorian era city,

2018-02-16 07:08:05 UTC

and he was so overcome with woe at the lack of spirituality,

2018-02-16 07:08:11 UTC

that he longed to die and suffer again.

2018-02-16 07:08:16 UTC

I think we're there today.

2018-02-16 07:08:36 UTC

And I think the Catholic faith is the only means of saving us from such a miserable existence.

2018-02-16 07:09:59 UTC

I am going to a Wels Lutheran church because they are traditional. They don't even allow women preachers or women in any authority at all, LOL. The preachers have to go to 8 years of college and learn Hebrew and Greek. They work to stay true to the word. I grew up in the Southern Baptist and that is literally like a pop up church - the worst of protestantism. I don't think they even have to be formally educated to start a baptist church.

2018-02-16 07:10:30 UTC

Yes that sounds significantly better than most.

2018-02-16 07:10:46 UTC

There are 4 types of Lutheran, from traditional, to totally gay.

2018-02-16 07:10:58 UTC

I am in the most traditional (and smallest) group.

2018-02-16 07:11:20 UTC

That is mildly depressing.

2018-02-16 07:11:27 UTC

What're their views on contraception?

2018-02-16 07:11:29 UTC

Yes, everyone goes to the gay one.

2018-02-16 07:12:34 UTC

That's a good question. I don't know as it is not relevant to me. I am old πŸ˜ƒ I will look it up though.

2018-02-16 07:12:56 UTC

I appreciate it.

2018-02-16 07:13:44 UTC

I will see if I can find a formal statement.

2018-02-16 07:19:05 UTC

I can't find anything more on the topic right now.

2018-02-16 07:21:30 UTC

It's fine. I appreciate the dedication.

2018-02-16 07:27:42 UTC

I saw some post by Fox News on instagram about dog petting for comfort at some β€œprayer” group for the Florida shooting. What a joke

2018-02-16 07:27:55 UTC

I’ve been to their services too. The heresy is too much

2018-02-16 07:32:05 UTC

how is dog petting heresy

2018-02-16 07:32:14 UTC

@Broseph <:bigguy:402401397892710411>

2018-02-16 07:32:30 UTC

Two different posts pal

2018-02-16 07:32:35 UTC

Their services are

2018-02-16 07:32:44 UTC

The dog petting just shows what a joke they are

2018-02-16 07:33:34 UTC

literally nothing wrong with dog petting

2018-02-16 07:33:48 UTC
