I like to watch porn movies.
This is perhaps one of those things that you should not feel the need to tell us.

The thread asked me.

You weren't obligated to answer.

Who elects bishops in the Russian Orthodox Church? The Patriarch or the Assembly of bishops?



Well it depends. If somehow Pope Francis manages to touch the Patriarch's hand and pass on the Catholic-cooties then the Pope will be appointing all Russian bishops by the end of February. As to how it's handled before that fateful day I imagine the Holy Synod elects bishops.

Only pope Benedict has that power.

I find your lack of faith in Putin disturbing...

KJV will always have a special place in my heart, but I consistently use RSV now.

Out of curiosity, why is the RSV preferable?
Because it reads like a lawyer kept the KJV's syntax and structure but updated its language.

RE: the OP. The KJV is fine, but so are most translations. I rotate between them as needed.Translations by their nature are imperfect, so reading multiple takes from different translation philosophies can be helpful. I'm a fan of using the liturgical translation of your jurisdiction for your textual base of operations if it's available.

Our 11 year old daughter, Adayah, won first place in the Middle School division of the Jackson, Mississippi "Martin Luther King Oratory Competition"! She has been asked to present her speech to a city wide audience this Thursday night. She also won $200 as the first place prize! I am so extremely proud of my little princess! She constantly amazes me. Here's the link to the video of her speech. Please keep Adayah in your prayers.

Gebre, I am only surprised by the fact that the light in your head did not blow out the camera!
She is beautiful, speaks as a professional, has excellent presentation skills, confidence, speaks OUT which many young people do not do, and she does it perfectly. Good body language, moves easily, speaks naturally and is a pleasure to listen to.
So how did YOU do it? Only by the graciousness of Our Good God.
Thanks, and well done, sir.

Thank you so much dear brother. Indeed, God's grace is magnificent. I am a very lucky man.

Selam

Last week I watched the movie Yojimbo.  Talk about a racist film.  Not a single person of uncolour.  I'm glad to see that modern movies like 47 Ronin and The Last Samurai were able to break the race barrier and put a person of uncolour in a major role.  I have Seven Samurai on order.  Hopefully it is more like 47 Ronin as it has a number and a type of Japanese warrior in the title and less like racist movies such as Yojimbo, Sanjuro, and Ran.
