"I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it."

You, sir, get an eager and earnest side hug.  Mor loves you.

Thank you! Your passion and camaraderie warms the cockles of my heart, yet you have wisely balanced this with the circumspect use of the Christian side hug. It is unlikely that God would let Satan trick up into becoming gay, but why take that chance? Kudos to you, sir, and kudos again!

What are our Articles, Creeds, and Confessions of Faith? We have none, and we do not follow any. Articles, Creeds, and Confessions of Faith alike fail to give us this full knowledge of God which is so essential to our faith and walk. They are only man’s impressions, inferences, and conclusions drawn from Scripture; and have themselves to be judged by Scripture. Whatever of truth there may be in them, or however useful, they can never take the place of the Word of God. Only the Living Word, and in the pages of the written Word, can we get to know God.

Interesting that these Protestants say that the Nicene Creed will have to be judged by Scripture, when both the Holy Bible and the Nicene Creed were compiled and canonized by the Holy Orthodox Church established by Christ God.

Edited to add the link to this excerpt.

Protestants like Lutherans and Anglicans will say that the Nicene Creed is acceptable because is derived from and agrees with Scripture.  Of course, the image they have in their heads when they say something like that is that all the bishops at Nicaea had their Bibles out and were taking out verses and paraphrasing them.

Faith Issues / When making Prosphoron, what type of seal do you prefer?
« Last post by scamandrius on Yesterday at 02:24:14 PM »
I made the prosphoron bread for Liturgy this weekend.  THe bread came out fine, but the seal didn't really take on a few loaves so I scrambled to make a few more just in case.  I was using a wooden seal, borrowed from a friend and it is probably near 100 years old (it belonged to her mother). Though it's been awhile since I have made prosphoron, in the past I used a plastic seal and the results were only slightly better.  What type of seal do you use?  Have you tried one style and then moved on to another because it left a better imprint on the bread?  If you recommend one, can you also tell me where you obtained it?

Faith Issues / Re: The Millennial Reign of Christ: Christendom
« Last post by Justin Kissel on Yesterday at 02:22:55 PM »
There's really no need for this theory. All those "Kingdom of God" (or "Kingdom of Heaven" in Matthew) passages in the Gospels are speaking of the kingdom that exists right now, as fully manifested in the Church, and has been around since the 1st century ;)

This is about the millenial reign.

Or the non-existence of it?

Does this Protestant denomination have an outreach to Russia?

When I clicked HOME at the bottom of the page linked in the OP, it took me to this website:

Frankly, I would prefer that the spider spend more time in the web than on the ground creeping around.

In a couple of weeks it will be that time of year again - when Charlotte's brood is out in their numbers.
