Tired but employed.
but that is not the same as saying it is evil (nor have I mentioned it at all in this thread).
Fair enough.I don't think it amounts to enough, altho it could continue on to become one. Critical thought is break down and dismissal and contraries, and has been the mode of the academy since at least 1800. It requires creative thought on which to work, and mostly takes that from the past or perhaps sometimes the naive present. Itself is infecund.
No, that's the caricature of critical thought pushed by premodern LARPers like you. One can hold certain principles like the dignity of human life and the importance of the freedom of the individual as axiomatic and still think critically.
Oh, and Hecma, if you are not sick then have a better Lent.
Over / under on the post when this thread becomes about JamesR's virginity?JamesR is really Jesus? This sheds a whole light on things.
Mor, are you cradle?
You already know that Protestants, some, have a spontaneous or extemporaneous prayer life and "feel" it to be the way one prays most all the time. So when one comes into Orthodoxy and finds Prayers for The Sick, and/or someone else's words used in/for every kind of situation then it is normal to wonder 'what is prayer and when do I get to pray for this certain person or thing"?
Strong emotive response is natural in such. That's all.
