I like how the last two posts in this thread, taken back to back, kind of illustrate the end points or poles of discussion here. "We must never judge another person, as we cannot see into their soul, and don't know what their interior spiritual life is like." "Yeah, who really cares what you think?"

They sound like the same method of dismissing people frankly.

Who cares what someone's interior "spiritual life" is other than other people who can never stop talking about their own? Using some imagined notion of a rarefied subjectivity on which to understand someone would be alien to early Christians.

And I don't know and actually don't care what subjective and spiritual state someone has including Punch. What I am interested in is what they do. And in this case, taken seriously, thinking is not what the Father above thinks it is. Punch is one of the few around here who does think and I am quite interested in it. Thought is as much an act and more so than any other and requires no interiority for it to occur.

More so than the namby pamby care for the "heart and soul" of a man, I'll regard his thoughts and other actions, which is to say to have not taken the ontological insight about the religious life which finds it most exquisite elaboration in Kierkegaard and have traded it in for an ethical stance.

In short, if Abraham were going to kill his son, I would kill him first. All his interior spiritual truth aside.

Hitler loved his dog. Who knows the measure of a man's heart in the quietude of his repair?

Who cares.

I suppose changing around the 'font' is a good idea depending on whether the person being baptized is an adult or not.
But in larger or smaller type size it's QUITE aggravating.

The whole thread is quote-worthy, but this one in particular made me smile:

Throwing spears far had been used in warfare before Christianity existed.

Yes and one spear went into a man where blood and water came forth from the wound.

However, the Javelin throw in particular was used as a Christian execution method for martyrs.

Other people were crucified, but what does crucifixion mean to a Christian.  I see javelin throws the same way.
"But we must live in the world, having peace in our soul. We must live amidst strangers; we must suffer, struggle, and firmly believe. We must seek our consolation in prayer and not doubt the love and compassion of God. He is above everyone and everything."

In fact all sports ending in the suffix -ball are re-enactments of the stoning of Saint Stephen.

I'd believe that about dodgeball.

My version of the Bible doesn't have a Roman throwing the lance from over 100 meters away.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

What did George Washington have to say about masturbation?   
Even satan himself can appear as an Angel of the Lord, and do good works in His name, to distract you from the path of True Righteousness

Ever notice that just like there is no age limit on stupidity, there is no IQ limit either? kind of explains a lot huh?

Even the Oriental Orthodox Church, to some degree, gave birth to the Rastafari faith.

And the OCA ("the only truly Canonical American Orthodox Church") gave birth to you.  When I think of it in those terms, I'm really happy with Rastafarians.

Two from Wesley that aren't necessarily funny but struck me in the right way this morning:

Jetavan is well versed in Buddhism and spiritual sciences but I don't think he is a witch.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

St Andrew only got as far as Romania.

St. Andrew got at least as far as Kyiv.

Proof?


Someone spray-painted 'St. Andrew was here' on the wall of one of the pirozhky shops circa 45AD.

I take such issue to Darwinism because it's that burrier that Satan places infront of you to make you not fully beleive in God or the Bible. The school system promotes this alternate religion to the masses on our tax dollar expense. If Genesis isnt true, then the next chapter isnt. Then everyone is a skeptic and begins making their own rules using their own human rationality. Human rationality is what Jesus came to fix. Human rationality claimed Cain. So when you have those inclings of doubt on the bible itself, the. You become like Morph Ephem and dont care to bother researching because your own intillect is more important.

No offense, but I don't see why most men would marry a non-virgin to begin with. I don't care how politically incorrect it is, but seeing that I'm a virgin and probably will be on my wedding night (if I can find a prostitute to marry me) I don't think it's unfair to demand that my partner be one as well. I deserve the extra "benefits" of a virgin woman if you know what I mean. If my wife doesn't bleed on the wedding night I'm filing for divorce. I'm done with always being told I'm valueless. I'd take what I think I'm entitled to.

The point I'm driving is that I think this fatherly obsession over their daughters' virginity is a misogynistic convention that reduces her self-worth down to that of what men will think of her, as men--especially in religious circles--seem to have this fetish for virgins. I say up with these conventions. I don't want my daughter's self worth to be based off what men think of her.

No offense, but I don't see why most men would marry a non-virgin to begin with. I don't care how politically incorrect it is, but seeing that I'm a virgin and probably will be on my wedding night (if I can find a prostitute to marry me) I don't think it's unfair to demand that my partner be one as well. I deserve the extra "benefits" of a virgin woman if you know what I mean. If my wife doesn't bleed on the wedding night I'm filing for divorce. I'm done with always being told I'm valueless. I'd take what I think I'm entitled to.

The point I'm driving is that I think this fatherly obsession over their daughters' virginity is a misogynistic convention that reduces her self-worth down to that of what men will think of her, as men--especially in religious circles--seem to have this fetish for virgins. I say up with these conventions. I don't want my daughter's self worth to be based off what men think of her.

Orthodox Virgin Prostitute.  ::) I've seen it all now.

Never say that.  When you think it can't get worse, someone here will find a way to make it worse.

Ta da!

I wish I could take it back and become like [JamesR].

Just to be clear, despite an apparent adversarial position against James in the thread referenced above, I like him and think half of the bristling his continued posting brings up around here is greatly exaggerated. Someone's gotta keep the pious riled up.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.
