Appropriate for a thread about converting to Christianity:

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

THE OPINIONS HERE MAY NOT REFLECT THE ACTUAL OR PERCEIVED ORTHODOX CHURCH

Take a breath, read Ecclesiastes 1:9.

"The business of the Christian is nothing else than to be ever preparing for death (μελεπᾷν ἀποθνήσκειν)."

— Saint Irenaeus of Lyons, Fragment XI

Modernist thinking and being consists of nothing but uncritical acceptance.

Emojis make my inner goddess explode.
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

thank you so much Mor ephrem you are a hero!

Now tell me, is Saint John Damascene on the side of Living Tradition or a slave of the immaculate novelty?
"Verily they that seek Thee, Lord, and keep the canons of Thy Holy Church shall never want any good thing.”
St. John the Merciful

"This is the one from the beginning, who seemed to be new, yet was found to be ancient and always young, being born in the hearts of the saints."

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

Mean and makes me lose a certain amount of respect for the both of you. I don't endorse that post of Rakovsky's, but he doesn't deserve that kind of name calling, especially when calling someone a "robot" has autism-bashing connotations. Not that I think Rakovsky's autistic, but still.

If your apology was sincere, there would have been no reason to portray this as me scoring points off you.  It would be enough to admit your error without conditions or qualifications and move on.

Because you and I both know that the only reason you give a crap about my offending LGBT people is because you seem to enjoy pointing out the inconsistencies of others for some reason and because of what just happened up-thread.

Fine, I apologize unreservedly. It was a stupid, ill-considered joke.

I'm still not gay enough for Cosmopolitans and Sex on the Beach's.
Maybe I'm gay enough for that right now.

Fabulouth.

Ridiculing the LGBT community?

Why would you care if I was?

Somehow I doubt most of them would consider that ridicule, but if they did then I'd apologize.

They probably would.

+1

I agree with you, biro.

Ok. I apologize to any LGBT people reading this who I might have offended. That was not my intent.


There. You scored points off me, Mor. Congrats. Insert Citizen Kane clapping gif here.

If your apology was sincere, there would have been no reason to portray this as me scoring points off you.  It would be enough to admit your error without conditions or qualifications and move on.

Because you and I both know that the only reason you give a crap about my offending LGBT people is because you seem to enjoy pointing out the inconsistencies of others for some reason and because of what just happened up-thread.

Fine, I apologize unreservedly. It was a stupid, ill-considered joke.

^That's an apology.

PtA, is that you?  :P ::)

No, but replying to posts with questions certainly makes me wonder about you.   :P ::)
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

thank you so much Mor ephrem you are a hero!

Is there a Veggie Tales version of this you can show us?
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

I've seen modern atheist Epicureans try to dismiss the ancient Epicureans' theology as basically a front to stave off accusations of atheism and impiety and avoid persecution. They also point out that belief in these "gods" is not essential to the Epicurean ethical system. The latter point is probably valid but I get the sense the Epicureans were quite sincere in their belief.
Sounds like someone is projecting their essentially modern sentiments onto older philosophers. Everyone was a closet atheist for them. It's like Afrocentrism with fedoras.
On an extended hiatus from this site. Please pray for me and my family.

I'm sorry to any that my posts might offend.

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

God committed suicide after watching God's Not Dead 2.

Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
