Once a month my Church has a special youth mass so to speak. In essence what really happens is that once a month on Sat vigil mass the prefects of the high school come and do the readings and the prayers. And then we don't see them for another month.

Today as they went up for communion I decided to watch since I had seen a couple of them chatting/whispering through the service. The first had her hand over her chest and didn't receive, which she was respectful the whole time so good on her. A couple go to a weekly prayer group I hold for the youth in the Church so they weren't an issue. But one of them receives the Eucharist and begins to walk off with it, one of the choir sees this and informs them that they need to consume it. Which makes me wonder on the state of this ones sin, I imagine they're just ignorant and meant no harm. Then another one goes forth, one of those chatting through the mass. I see him take it in his hand and walk away with it as I'm leaving my pew to line up. I never got to see whether he consumed it when he got back to his seat. I kept an eye on him in the ending prayers trying to see if he still had the host, and couldn't see it.

I worry that he may have went off with the host, and that he may have made a mockery of it later with some luke-warm secular kids. Should I have taken him aside even if I don't know if he had consumed the host?

I brought it up with my Priest and also reminded him thats why we should receive on the tongue to which he conceded and said I was right. Not in a disrespectful way we always have discussions of modern vs traditional.

My current plan of action is to talk to one of the prefects at the prayer group I hold and ask him to talk to the other prefects and remind them to either not receive the host or to consume it at the front of the Church. While also following up about it. Or alternatively I could try get the Priest to make sure the slideshows remind people to not walk off with the host or something? What do you think /christian/ what should I have done? And what should I do now?

Get back up and fight!! Despondency is the demon that comes immediately after , and you will be attacked hard with it. Fight despondency first, that is the next battle, and it is easy to beat back just get up and fight! The demons fall is permanent. We are not demon, and we can get back up. Learn from what brought you down. Trace your actions and your thoughts , be wiser for the next battle. Sharpen your sword and your put back on your armor. If you don’t get up immediately you will be surrounded and stacked continuously. This is beaten by getting back UP. Watch your food intake. I also am struggling hard with this, I am overcome often, but I am getting better. Confession helps, which you have now done, and God did not kill you , your light is not gone, and the gospels tell us that our sins can be forgiven. Tell despondency to gtfo, now is when you fight harder , and also smarter, prepare your defenses for next time! Keep a journal! (Food intake is serious. If you failed, chances are you are not hungry, and you are not working. Why did you eat so much? Why did you stop working? Fight the battles while they are easier to fight and you will be stronger for the lust monster next time around. Control your mind! Watch where your thoughts wander and corral th into better directions. When we fall down, we learn, and fight smarter, for the next battle. It’s not God telling you that you can’t be saved and need give up and Jesus left and oh woe is me etc etc. That’s not God at all. No, you are a child of God. Jesus purges the temple, Open the temple doors immediately, it’s despondency telling you to close them and it’s a trap. The ancient desert scholars teach that that’s its own demon and it is a worse one if you let it stick around too long , because it brings along all of its many friends. No, instead, you look to the exact next right thing to do , which is to fight off despondency open doors of the temple purge out nonsense and start preparing immediately for next battle. get up! Fight smarter! Now get up and back into it! God speed, brother!!

>What is this thread?

The designated political discussion thread. Christians from all parts of the political spectrum are encouraged to discuss relevant political topics and ideas, as well as ask questions and hopefully recieve answers from all points of view. Anything related to politics that doesn't actively involve the Catholic/Orthodox/Protestant churches should go here, so if a politics thread is deleted, this thread is the reason why.

As a reminder:

All board rules apply to this thread, so keep things civil.

“But I have prayed for you, that your faith would not fail. And you, when you have turned back, strengthen your brethren.”

Luke 22:32

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

Confess your offences to one another and pray for one another in order to be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective!

One of the most common christian arguments to debunk the godless theory of the creation of the Big-Bang, is to say that "what is, cannot come from what is not". In other words, it is absurd to say that "atoms formed" out of nothing and yet from itself, and that those atoms exploded and created the universe…And thus, there must have had a creator, a God which created the universe, or created those atoms if you stick to this specific theory.

It's a very convincing argument against atheists Darwinism…But the next logical question is: Who created the creator? Who create God? Did God come from itself? If so, how could he have been created from nothing and yet from itself? Is there a creator of the creator? And if so, who created the creator who created the creator ?

We can continue like that at the infinity…

Is it the point that we have to just have faith in God? Because I'm ok with that, but I wanted to know if there is a rational explanation to the creation of God. What we are sure, with the argument used above to debunk the theory of the Big-Bang, it is that we have the certainty that there is a cause, that there is a creator to this universe…Which we call God. But who created God and who or what is the creator of all the creations ? Is it the same God that we are talking about ?

>who created the creator

Two paths to look at this:

1. The creator existed before time itself therefore makes the question null and void since it would require a time when the creator didn’t exist and would reduce the ultimacy of the being that supposed to lord over all things

2. If believe time is eternal and have no problems with it then you can apply that to the creator

Seriously I thought these brainlet questions were over by now

So do I, but that's only capable of testing repeatable hypotheses in material reality. The scientific method can't tell me if my mother loves me, despite mountains of evidence. Likewise, thinking that the scientific method will tell you if a God who exists outside space and time loves you isn't going to yield any results.

Only the sacrifice of God could save us from the eternal offense of the original sin. That is: only God sacrificing Himself for us could repair the infinite offense of original sin.

I like this Orthodox priest's explanation. Starts at 18:45.

6682c9  No.787515


He didn't die for the original sin, but for every sin we have commited. Why? Because sin is an offense against God, doing something against the will of the one who has created us and given us everything. God is eternal and infinite, but humans are finite. Offenses against God have infinite consequence that we cannot repay because we are finite. This is just. But God is loving and merciful, so He himself became human, so He could suffer our penalty for us, and because of His infinite nature, this was sufficient to atone for all the sins humanity has commited and will commit.

He died so that all who believe in Him could have eternal life. Because we are too imperfect to be able to merit our own salvation. It's because of this sacrifice that no matter how grievously you sin, as long as you have a genuine will to repent, all you have to do is use the sacrament of Confession to be freed, and to be able to participate in the greatest joy and only true purpose a human can have - the eternal life.

We can also discuss our objections to the autocephaly if anyone has any. All opinions welcome but please try to be civil and elaborate on your disagreement.

>white people's only Orthodoxy

I remind you it is a sin to bear false witness. Why do you break God's commandments to bear false witness against your brother? This is not what Dr. Johnson has ever advocated for and I challenge you to cite anything he's said to that effect.


Before the modern age there was no distinction between political and religious, crown and altar were tied together. Orthodox priests led uprisings in the Balkans against the Turk oppressors. I suppose you look down at ethnic churches and want ethnic traditions to be thrown out of the church. This makes me sad. There are Orthodox priests today that do not condemn freemasonry. THEY are who we need to be getting as far away from as possible.

Perhaps if you'd read his essay you'd get an inkling of his position instead of dismissing the entire thing out of hand and replacing his position with an obvious strawman attack.

>conspiracy theory

lol if you talked to Orthodox people 500 years ago you would be aghast at all the "conspiracy theories" they held to.

Orthodox have a prayer rope which is a simpler design than a rosary, no decades, just a single unbroken chain of knots. Most are usually made of knotted cord instead of beads, but I have seen some with beads. The biggest difference is in the prayers. Orthodox use the Jesus Prayer constantly instead of the combination of multiple prayers that Catholics use.

Exactly. That's what I'm familiar with: the prayer rope, not an "Orthodox Rosary" with decades and meditating on the mysteries like the articles advocate.

This is a very disturbing development in the Ukraine.

Just to be clear, I am an Orthodox American, never been to Russia, not some great Russophile here. Not some shill for the Moscow Patriarchate.

But in 2014 it is pretty clear some shady things happened in the Ukraine. You had all these neo-fascist groups rising up and attacking the police… now you have Bartholomew giving awards to Joe Biden and involved in what I believe is a CIA proxy coup in Ukraine.

The CIA and NATO and all these western foundations are the enemies of Orthodoxy. Trust me, I live in the belly of the USA freemasonic beast.

Euromaidan had many aspects. Ordinary people wanted to move away from Russian rule and obviously America and the EU show it as an opportunity to gain influence. But that's the political part. As far as faith go, Russia was using Orthodoxy as a propaganda tool resulting to a decline of Orthodoxy in Ukraine as people were losing faith in the church.

Bartholomew as the ecumenical Patriarch, politics aside, couldn't leave a whole country in schism and now the time was right to heal it. Russian church show her true face by not attending any council.

Be sure that both the American and the Russian states are enemies of Orthodoxy. Russia maybe more because they reduce our faith to a soft power tool that will lead to an inevitable backlash again and the victims will be the faith and laity, not Putin and Kirill. The same thing that happened with communism.

Post your successes/troubles.

The responsibility is yours. Since you're the man you are the driving force behind starting a relationship. It is your job to do the first move as it is to lead all other moves.

Women seek stability. A woman is like a flower that grows towards God. A man is more like a stick. He can direct the married couple towards God. If both of them are flowers, then they stay in mud.

>Be yourself

Be confident about who you are. It will give you a special aura around yourself

>Work on your confidence

Start at nofap thread, eliminate porn and masturbation from your life. Increase your testosterone levels by working out…./fit/

>Get hobbies

If you lack interests, you are less interesting to women. Women want men of action.

>Visit places where high quality women hang out

Church, library, your hobbies…

>Become more educated about your faith

If you want a good Christian girl you should study scriptures. If she takes her faith seriously she will probably be impressed.

Your future wife probably will not just appear out of nothing and ask you out. It is your job when she appears all of sudden to be confident enough to ask her out and handle that situation.

Ahh, a sign of /pol/mentia. a term I literally just made up

I used to be like that. You see, anger that lingers too long in the heart becomes hate/a grudge. You gotta let it go and forgive the lukewarm and the kikes.

It'll be hard at first, as you are righteous to be angry at them, just like how Jesus has every right to be angry with the jews and gentiles for literally murdering Him.

But, like Jesus, we are to forgive them and show them the way of love and kindness, as Jesus would want us to. Treat them like you would a brother or sister. Correct them, rebuke them, but don't hate them because most of the time they have no idea what they are doing.

Once you learn how to let go of the hate and use that emotional energy and direct it twords prayer especially the rosary you will begin to transform into a better person.

When it comes to good women, they want a man that emulates their father.

A man that they know are emotionally stable enough to take care of them and their future children. A man righteous enough to keep them in line. A leader they will follow.

Your age helps with this, but you also need to learn virtues of patience and kindness especially patience, and lots of it lmao.

For now, I wouldn't worry so much about finding a mate. Instead pray more and donate the time you spend here on the chans to a Christian charity. Go to the local food kitchen and feed the poor. Cook food and coffee for the after mass coffee hour. Help out the pastor and the ladies with cleaning the church. Spend like 50 dollars at the local 2nd hand thrift store and buy clothes for the poor. Maybr even join a mission trip. My former Eastern priest literally met his wife on a mission trip to Africa. Even if there are no youngish women at your church, make friends with the old people. Most likely they have a daughter or grand daughter they will introduce you to. Things like that.

I went from depressed nihilistic godless neet to having a job, girlfriend, and motivation to do God's will and all it took was reading the Bible for the first time. Thank you Jesus unironically.

>im totally blackpilled on wahmens

See here anon e6ba05, this Is why I said pray the rosary. I used to be like this poor fellow and thought the East would solve my problems, but it never did. The East sounds fun like protestantism (no Rome as authority) but with a more mystical aspect to it. Sounds good on paper, but it is still inferior to Rome and doesn't have the same transformation quality like praying the rosary does. The East can't make the same promises /ourLady/ can make.

All I'm saying, e6ba05, you have nothing to lose by asking Jesus' mother to pray for you but your vices. Trust in her and she will keep you close to God.

Nope, here your catechism is exclusively referring to the rite of water baptism.

see 1278

<1278 The essential rite of Baptism consists in immersing the candidate in water or pouring water on his head, while pronouncing the invocation of the Most Holy Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Anyway I'm not here to weasel around catholic theology with you, my case is readily apparent for anyone who wants to read it.

The catholic claim, as demonstrated in this one example regarding baptism, is that grace (read: God's forgiveness) comes as a result of physically participating in works (read: ergon - task, deed, action). This is in direct contradiction with Ephesians 2, John 3:16, Hebrews 7:25 etc.

We have observed that the catholic response in trying to find intellectual consistency results in allegorizing double-speak.

All this to make the illustration that the chief of this institution teaching a false gospel no doubt also believes this false gospel, and so the spirit is not in him.

Grace is not reducible to mere forgiveness. Grace is the presence and action of God. Physically participating in the conduits of God's activity is the way that God participates with us. We meet Christ in communion, and He meets us. He has already sacrificed Himself for us, He has already forgiven us, we go to mass to be in His presence (read:grace, AKA presence)

>This is in direct contradiction with Ephesians 2, John 3:16, Hebrews 7:25

<My understanding of Ephesians 2, John 3:16 and Hebrews 7:25 conflicts with what I perceive to be the teaching of the Church

I believe part of the problem to be that you are reducing "grace" to being nothing more than a synonym for "forgiveness" which is leading you to misunderstand Church teaching.

>you are reducing "grace" to being nothing more than a synonym for "forgiveness" which is leading you to misunderstand Church teaching.

This is a common awful translation in prot/heretic circles. Jehovah's Witnesses, for example, translate it as "undeserved kindness"

I know lust is a sin, but however I don't understand why masturbating to porn is looked down by God.

I'm looking for a serious explanation.

I'm just ignorant on the bible and would love a serious explanation on why lust and porn is a sin.

Lust is driven by fear, fear mainly that you are unlovable, fear is of evil. It means that you are still busy taking thought for the morrow (Matthew 6:34). The extent that it is all about fear is quite shocking; your reptile brain is basically urging you to steal while subtly reminding you that you aren't worthy of a woman.

Persist in avoiding it, and one day you will see

That was helpful, anon, thank you for that. If you have made it out of this, I (and I think many others as well) would very much appreciate reading about how you did it. If you have the time, maybe you could write a bit about how you accomplished this and what worked for you in a journal / word doc / pdf or some such and post it in the thread stickies to the top of the catalog. This is a serious problem, and lust holds immense power over a lot of us. It’s wrecking many of us. Some success stories and encouragement , or tidbits (of bread?) you picked up in your own path upward and out would be very useful. The very fact that that thread has to be stickied is alone proof enough of how terrible and real the problem is. It’s destroying us and it’s ravaging the church, also. Your path out would be very useful to hear and to read and to learn from. Have mercy on us, brother, the multitudes of us have come a long way… and we are starving. If you got some of that bread, break some off for us, Jesus will surely multiply it! God speed, brother!
