Please pray for me to get off forums
« on: August 25, 2014, 05:54:01 AM »
Most of the strong christians (and I know I am probably not wiser than them) I know have got off forums and were probably instructed by their Father of Confession. I know most priests don't participate on forums. I will blame myself if I go to hell for not getting off forums and I only make mistakes on forums. My father and mother also tell me to get off forums. I guess I have to serve God another way where I don't affect people. Not that I came on forums to serve God but to benefit my soul

My FOC hopefully still supports going to christian meetings. But wasn't it the churches idea to create forums?
I am socially retarded or lazy in real life so any benefit I get in real life tends to be small but on forums we can all learn from each other I thought and get answers to many important issues (without seeing a priest about it for by then we could forget it and only get one opinion and others won't be benefited) and do evangelism but my dad says I don't need to try to attract people to Christ or explain God's justice all that is a work of the devil. Leave it to we trust in God's justice and mercy. It is Christ who draws men to Himself
I thought it is easier to reach out to people with real issues like depression and self harm on forums than in real life where we might be absorbed in our own goals where no one even trys to pursuade you to go to church. So our desire to help might cool off

It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Lord, have mercy on Mike.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.
