Don't Ask Your Priest
« on: March 24, 2017, 04:35:56 PM »
A topic under which cradles and converts alike can compile questions that don't require you to ask your priest and that he hopes he never has to answer. The category is as wide as your imagination.

E.g. "Do you think it's OK for me to get this infection treated?"

OR

"Should I fly in a hot-air balloon on a Wednesday?"

OR

"I overheard some Protestants praying, and I accidentally anticipated that they were going to say 'amen' at the end. Does this mean that I accidentally prayed with heretics?"
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

If there was a way to set a thread to be "unviewable," I would use it now.

That which is done, cannot be undone.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

If God is impassible, and my bowels are impacted and thus impassable, are my guts God?

Wow. Definitely do not ask your priest that question!
