I haven't been to a Sunday liturgy in a while (pretty sad considering how much time I netodox around on forums, maybe I have an Internet addiction). I also have not consistently been praying daily.

Apart from moral conduct, all that man thinks himself able to do in order to become acceptable to God is mere superstition and religious folly. - Immanuel Kant

Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. - Matt. 5:24

Lord Have Mercy. Try to get yourself to attend Church at least every other Sunday. I miss a Liturgy every once in a while but I always try to not miss three in a row. If I miss one Liturgy I always make sure to go to the next one. If I miss two Liturgies, then I make it a duty to attend the next one no matter what.

You're really on to something here. Tattoo to keep you from masturbating, chew to keep you from fornicating... it's a whole new world where you outsource your crosses. You're like a Christian entrepreneur or something.

Lord have mercy.

I can relate.

Lord have mercy!

Pray for me too, please.

Taking a temporary hiatus from posting. PM me if you wish to contact me as I will still be signing in on occasion. Please forgive me if my posts have lacked humility, charity, or tact.

NOTE: Some of my older posts (particularly those prior to late 2012) may not reflect my current views.
