@DOAN it's like this. The path has been painted for you by the wisest men of their century. Do you want to follow them or man with thin arms who claps hands like girl
Lmao but wasn't Luther pretty redpilled on the JQ
Both Orthodox and Catholic hold that the deposit of the faith is the sacred tradition and not the Bible.
Protestants believe that the Bible is the deposit of faith and it dovetails nicely with their anti-clericalism.
Because if you can go straight to the Bible and read it yourself and interpret doctrine like that you don't need a hierarchy
In fact at that point the hierarchy become gate keepers
Is protestantism the root of western degeneracy?
A lot of people say it is
I don't like chasing the original vampire. But you can certainly say that the Protestant Reformation was the point at which Christendom began to fracture.
There's always been heretical and proto-Protestant movements in Europe but they were suppressed until that point where it got out of control with Luther.
I think western degeneracy is an original sin problem fundamentally
When in doubt, blame it on demons
God takes from you what you don't deserve to have
Is that why Martin shrekli is in prison?
no its litterally a fucking fact
You can trace nearly every problem the west has now to the reformation, which birthed enlightenment thought, which then evolved into both marxism and the epic democratic liberalism we got now
Was Communism a gift from God to Eastern Europe or the work of Satan?
God works in mysterious ways, as they say. I couldn't say for sure if it was overall good or bad. I think it was evil, but good can come from pain.
We'll see in another few decades if it was worth it.
Eastern Europe is much more Christian then we are today. They had many martyrs under communism, and it was hard to be Christian. Perhaps more souls went to heaven under communism then capitalism
HEY IS THAT A HUEY LONG PROFILE
maybe communism was divine chastisement
But really, if you look in the Bible, there are a lot of stories of groups getting persecuted only to have a golden age afterwards.
that's what Augustine said of the sack of Rome
guys take it outside of chrsitian posting
I was raised as a heeb but have rejected it, is catholicism the way to go?
