I kind of look at myself and just say; yes, people can be evil.I always understood that to be the basis of Christian conversion and desire for Salvation.
I always believed that People in the west are Roman-Catholics because they didn't hear anything about Orthodoxy, but as i grew i realized, some Latins really believe in this papal stuff. lol
Funny you should mention this. Because as a matter of fact, I hesitate to do any of that, and I thank you very much for your wise and sound counsel. And from such a young man, too! I'm impressed.
Haven't been in communion since '92 anywhere at all. Just a spectator, watching and listening, very closely and attentively.
And I'm doing just fine, relatively speaking. Maybe I'm in communion with the Angels. Who knows?
I was being sarcastic. I think all of Christianity is stained with the blood of innocents just as all of humanity is. Trying to find the cleanest rats in the sewer will only end in frustration, something I'm finding out the hard way.
Roger tower. That's why I left the sewer.
No you haven't. You're still a human being.
No doubt, but I don't consider myself a Catholic anymore, and haven't done really for 23 years now, in effect -- by not communing. (They would say I'd excommunicated myself.) But anyway, that was my point in saying I left the sewer (viz., of the human guilt in the RCC). Didn't want to be complicit any longer in all that, which in my opinion I would be if still "part of it."
There is no problem in recognising that Christ is fully and perfectly human and fully and perfectly divine. These remain distinct but undivided. The issue is that the term nature had different usage. Those who speak of in two natures are using the term differently to those who speak of one incarnate nature.
The substance of both statements is the same. There is no difference in Christology only terminology. The phrase in two natures is not unacceptable when properly understood as the EO intend it to be used. We are not in the 5th century now.
Your communion had already started killing people for being different
in 1182after the Council of Chalcedon... You condemn yourself by your own standard. Your emotions cloud your judgement.
Not as satisfying now, is it?
