All religions outside Orthodoxy were made up by somebody at some point and can be remade to suit the social and political needs of the time.
My sins run out behind me and I do not see them, but today I am coming to judge the errors of another.

To be frank, this thread was stupid from the start.

Feel free to start a better thread, Frank.

Anytime someone here brings up what Christians should be doing, I am reminded by the hope from this old post.

Been around that long, huh?

Let the reader understand.

What is this, a new restaurant chain where you can design your own burgers?

How on earth did we start talking about ROCOR? 

edit:

Yes, but the burgers are embedded with RFID nanobots which transmit brain signals to the Illuminati.

So, (name doesn't matter), if you were God or the Church, how would you handle these things?

The level of piety and morals was so high during 19th century in Montenegro, that when a couple is married, a man would take blanket and cover his wife's face and chest, and then have sex in dark. It was considered a sin to enjoy sex, and it was also considered a sin for a wife to see her husband's genitals. Many women would spend their entire life time married, and could never see their husband naked.

...

It was highly pious and Orthodox land back then.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

OC without rules? That is anarchy.

Verified. I clicked the link to the rules.

Here it is: http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php?action=rules

Yes, no rules.

Technically, that means all warnings could be appealed as there are no rules to justify a warning.

Oh, dear, what will the mods do now?

The thing is, we here read Bible SO LITTLE, so not much, so when Protestant comes and starts quoting his sola scriptura, we are like "WHAT?" And then we throw something at them to drive them away and yell "Kosovo is Serbia!" LOL

How many yiayias and other actual Greeks will meet him and slap him upside the head for taking it so lightly, the Prayer?

They won't. If there is one tired and old cliche that I've yet to see, it's the tired and old cliched odox woman who knows no boundaries.

One woman came close to this description at one parish I attended. Most converts let her bully them and the Priest would intervene. The first time she came at me with that nonsense I made it clear in a glance this would go nowhere and I wasn't her Balkan forever adolescent alcoholic to berate.

After that is was just overly zealous hugs and kisses.

This odox trope is some apology for patriarchy so the women feel vested as it were.

That hermit used his mental power to force me to accept his view on God, in the packaging of Orthodoxy. That view blocked God and that hermit was in prelest.

[...] Maybe all that frogsex-induced self-pleasuring you're denying yourself and fighting off through the application of tattoos in the foreign language of those lazy ethnic Orthodox you hate is being transformed into spiritual harlotry by the grace of whatever it is you worship.

Then I don't know why you posted that other stuff at all.

I'm not a forum professional, sorry.   The illustration made sense to me, but maybe was too far of a stretch for the reader.

So, let's see, in the time since I went to Vespers, had an enjoyable evening, then came back to this thread we've seen people suggest James needs a whipping, women devouring James, Orthonorm teasing everyone else, and a general pile-on with James. This thread is earning it's title.

Good Lent, everybody!

Excuse me! I'm the women devourer of this thread! :police:

Ah,  I see the cause of misunderstanding.  I meant women devouring James,  not woman-devouring James. Regardless,  I doubt either dish is Lenten.
