Biro, are you Roman Catholic again to spite us or is that for real?
Yeah, I do things just to p*ss off people on this board. Because none of you have ever had to change your beliefs or opinions before...
I'm not kidding. I'm a sinner like anyone, but there isn't a whole bunch of forgiveness and charity to go around sometimes, and it isn't only my fault.
I don't know what to do and I feel like I'm church-homeless sometimes. It seems to me that some folks have such a beef with the RCC that even if I did convert and become Orthodox, they'd still put me on the spot in their stupid arguments, as if I somehow bore the mantle for the entire church.
It does matter how you talk to people. When someone calls people dumb, that's not something that drops into the void with no echo. Time and time again, I've been told on this board that God will judge you more for your praxis than anything. What good does it to you to have a truthful faith if you call others dumb? What good does the faith do you if you never rise above, "Ha ha, we have the truth and you're just dumb, neener neener"? What is this, junior high?
Truth is one thing but I think you detract from its veneer if you act like it's a club for people who were born in the right place.
I've been trying to get this accomplished for years. It's not like I only heard of it last week.
I wish people would stop acting like things they say aren't real just because they're online. They're as real here as anywhere else.
I doubt things will change, though. I'm in a bind because I can't move right now. I don't have a lot of places to go.
Just remember, it's been said we're all converts- there was someone who said you have to convert to Christ every day.
