No such thing as a Armenian church in Myanmar

Those who allow Barlaamite theology to infiltrate their graphic design usually end up applying their pagan/worldly philosophies and sciences.

By contrast, here is an example of a non-Barlaamite image, rendered through the right-believing praxis of neptic contemplation:

Quote
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Quote
John 3:18 - He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Quote
John 3:36 - He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
Quote
John 5:24 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
Quote
John 6:40 - And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Quote
John 6:47 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
Quote
John 11:26 - And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
Quote
Acts 16:31 - And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Quote
Romans 10:9 - That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

These quotes from Scripture lead me to believe that one must believe in Jesus Christ in order to gain salvation. Why does the Eastern Orthodox Church say that one can not be saved simply by faith, but that one needs Church membership also?

Let us not pick and choose which Bible verses to follow. All of the above MUST be reconciled with:

John 6:53 - "Jesus therefore said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye have not life in yourselves."

Only ordained priests can consecrate the Eucharist. Therefore the Church is necessary.

Quote
What of the third-world countries who have the Gospel preached to them by non-Orthodox Christians (Baptists, Lutherans, Non-Denominational Christians)? Will they perish into eternal fire simply because they didn't join the Eastern Church, which they have no knowledge of, even though they came to believe in Christ?

The Catholic Church teaches that those with 'invincible ignorance' will not be damned simply for never encountering the Church. I believe the Orthodox have a similar teaching.

Quote
Also, what of the many Christians who do believe in Jesus Christ? Will they perish simply because they are not a part of your tradition? (I shouldn't even bring that question up because most of you will say, "Oh, but no one knows who will be saved. So, I can not judge.")

What can I say. They are not in the fullness of truth. Whether God will damn them for this or not is not for us to know.

However, Jesus says "if you love me, keep my commandments." That includes obeying your Bishop.

2 Thessalonians 2:15 - "So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter."

1 Timothy 3:15 - "If I am delayed, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and bulwark of the truth."

Never, ever jump into a conversation with a Serbian or a Croat (or for that matter many east European ethnic groups or nationalities) about history.  Critical analysis is usually frowned upon.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.



If it makes you feel any better, if I inherited an empire and became Hitler, I'd sack the Vatican and steal all of its lasagna and submissive women.

Yeah if the Vatican is known for anything, it's for the huge amount of women living there.

That is sarcasm.

Calvinists, and not only Calvinists, frequently go so far as to claim that the Protestant Reformers were guided by the Holy Spirit (for instance, in selecting which books were the "real" Bible, or in determining how to interpret Scripture, etc). That's pretty much the only way you can interpret the events of the Reformation if you're a monergist. Since the Reformers, in this view, were guided by the Spirit, their decisions and the Confessions (even if not everything the individual reformers wrote) are therefore infallible, or at least as close to infallible as you can get aside from the Scriptures themselves.

That line of reasoning is severely flawed, though. If the Reformers were guided by the Spirit, then the Church Fathers cannot have been, since frequently the two are at odds (for instance, when Calvin threw the Church Fathers under the bus, or when Knox did the same by claiming the men of Calvin's Geneva were the most righteous Christians since the Apostles themselves).

Why would the Holy Spirit leave the church in the 2nd, 4th, or 8th century and then suddenly swoop back in to "reform" in it in the 16th? That doesn't make much sense, unless you claim it was to "fulfill prophecy" (historicists would say exactly that). But it's still a problematic assertion because the Jesus said he would send the Paraclete (Spirit) to guide the Church, but didn't say anything about it ever leaving.

So really, the dispute is over who the "real" Fathers of the church are. Are they the men who lived in the first few centuries, many of whom personally knew the apostles, were part of churches they founded, and/or lived in the same cultural environment as them? Or are they a bunch of 16th century Northern Europeans who had a bone to pick with the Renaissance Popes, and who thought they knew better?

Proverbs 31:13


« Reply #1020 on: November 19, 2014, 09:40:43 PM »

He decriminalized Christianity and upheld Orthodox Christianity after the First Council of Nicea. Constantine was praised as a virtuous man by both Christian and pagans alike. He was baptized shortly before he died, but that does not mean that he did not take Christianity seriously.

If he took his Christianity seriously, he would actually have done what Jesus taught.  You know, when God said to "love your enemies", I think he really meant it.

So again, the question stands (I didn't bring up specifics until it was dealt out), would you rather a family man watch your children or a man that put his wife and son to death (after Nicea) in 326. Also murdered hundreds of thousands of people in battle well after Nicea and kept pagan sun God's on his coinage.

Look, I know, blind faith keeps blinding.   Don't look at reality.  Get angry.  Get angry at reality.   Make excuses.  Dodge reality.   

Of course the EO/RC church kisses Constantine's hind quarters, after all, he re-instated the bishops who denied Christ back to power then killed/sent into exile those apposing these bishops.   These "heretics" known as Donatists had no theological difference - they just didn't deny Christ, nor would they allow bishops who denied Christ back to power.   The bishops who denied Christ and gave up their gospels are in lineage to the current EO bishops - and the Donatists who were murdered are just "unforgiving heretics".   The icons in the EO church go to - you guessed it - Constantine.  He even has hymns!

History is most often written by the victors.

It's hard to admit when a saint your church holds as good.

And just to settle it before it comes - sure I'm a sinner.  I have never killed or murdered anybody.  I love my wife, I wouldn't have her executed - I'd rather die.  I also love my sons, I'd die in their stead before I'd have them executed.   I also could not order troops to kill others for almost any reason, let alone imperialism.
I'm right there with ya, bro. That's why when the author of Hebrews started raisin' the roof on ol' Sampson, I sent him a real nasty letter detailing all the sluts he kicked it with, stealing people's doors, abusing animals by lighting them on fire and all the dudes he bashed in with a donkey's jawbone. Then, at the very end, instead of forgiving his enemies, he pushed their temple down and killed all of them. If he really would have been serious about his faith, he would have loved his enemies.  I'm circulating a petition to have the book of Hebrews removed from the canon.  Can I count on your vote?  Clearly, it is just in there to get the Jewish vote by giving props to their heroes.
