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.

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.
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

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

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.

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.

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.

Imperial makes more sense.  1 BTUH is how much energy it takes to boil one gallon of water at sea level in one hour.  With a simple system like this I know that 30,000 BTUH will heat up a small garage quite nicely, whereas a larger area will need more BTUs.  The metric system is far more convoluted.  For instance, it takes 666 Joules of energy to burn one Christian child in a communist metric death camp in one centihour.  Who would base a system off of that???

I wish the Syriac Christians in India could unite to form a military unit to, with Indian and NATO approval, enter the fight against ISIL to protect their Suroyo brethren.  If that occurred, with MOSC and Jacobites fighting side by side, that might well end the schism.  And there is an urgent need for soldiers to help defend places like Dayro d'Mor Mattay.  Not wanting to make any kind of a political statement at all, by the way; I am expressing a wish for an ecclesiastical defense force under the joint command of the Catholicos and the Maphrian, as a means of healing the schism and protecting the Syriac Christians in the conflict area.  However if that would open up the Christians in Kerala to attacks from Muslims, then disregard it by all means.

Or maybe Mor Ephrem's undeniable swag and pheromones so potent you can feel their influence right through the internet have given you the impression that he has the power to implement such a far-fetched idea?  If he did, don't you think he'd be sitting on a golden throne supported by the skulls of his enemies with Rachel Weisz on his lap and Kelly serving him mango smoothies from a golden goblet?

Some OSASers might say that if fruits and a continued relationship didn't follow the salvation moment/event, then that means their was never a true redemptive salvationy thingy to begin with.

A joyless Orthodoxy is not Orthodoxy at all.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

How long after liturgy has ended is it appropriate to make bawdy jokes during a non-fasting time if the closest monastery is within 300 miles and you cover your hair?
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

The whole forum is Mor. We're emanations of his godlike mind.

Actually, Mor's face shineth like the Sun.

Quote from: Metropolitan Georges Khodr
A person is a face toward you. People are in what they face, if God is in them. Everything apart from Him is flesh and blood. If someone does not come to you from God, then you do not have a profound encounter with him. Life is not you, but rather you and the other.
Quote from: Pope Francis
Thank God he said I was a politician because Aristotle defined the human person as 'Animal politicus.' So at least I am a human person.

My posts are simply too long and needlessly so.

Hi all,
does Bible mention dinosaurs or animals like them anywhere in the Bible? Do Christians deny the existence of dinosaurs? If not, then how do we reconcile dinosaurs and the Bible writing?

Thanks for answers.
God bless.

The mere feat of his levitation over the forum I believe would have made a rather more visible impression on the Romans, who would have perhaps interpreted him as Icarus reborn and depicted him heavily in their artwork. As this did not happen, I think we can write it off as a pious fairytale.
