A "heretical influence" from where or whom? You have once again made an assertion without any background information or possible source. You are acting as an authority, yet give no support for why you should be accepted as one. What passage of the Scriptures or council or patriarch declared a knot to be a heresy?
You invoke the Gospels in the next sentence. Please give us the passage that you have in mind in making your claim.
How can you personally "prove" that faithful Christians did not tie knots under their chins? Merely repeating yourself is not proof.
"Presidence"? Perhaps you are thinking of another word. I will ask you where is it written or ordered or declared that such practices as knots under the chin or women witnessing a hair cut are not allowed? Where besides in your writing?
I have a number of times here on the forum asked you to give documentation for some of your more unusual claims of what is or is not Christian. I have shown where you have made errors of fact in your claims. I have shown in the past, with examples and documenting links, where you have misused other's words to try and support your particular and peculiar ideas. Though I do not claim to be particularly "righteous" since I am yet alive and as a human being a sinner (and following the words of Our Lord such as in Mark 10:18 that there is no one that is good besides God) I do judge such acts to be lying about other people's ideas and words and that such deeds are not righteous nor True.
Why would Truth need to be backed up with falsehoods?
The burden of proof of your claims is on you, yet you have so far been unwilling or unable to give any real, verifiable, unaltered material. Mere repetition is not "proof".
But we have been here before...
Yes, I meant "precedence", not "presidence". I am the worlds worst speller, forgive.
Thank you for catching that.
If others want to think that dressing like Judas or Freemasons, with a knot under the chin, is the thing to do it is their choice.
I do not think there is any evidence or proof that Christians should wear such a thing.
I believe there is more than enough proof for my position and anyone who searches these things out for themselves will learn it.
I do not see any good proof for the examples of what we see in the modern churches.
Modern innovations are the falsehoods, not the old practices established centuries ago.
Each person must judge for themselves which way to stand on such matters, I acknowledge that.
Ultimately none of us will have any excuses, as Christ will judge us all, for what we do.
Forgive, brother John
