New meme thread because the old one is autosaging, starting with a request: I need the exploitable 8ch logo, have this crop in return
No, the bird usually has that orthodox hat so make a version where the ortho-bird has that hat…
Saved! Can you make one exactly like this except with the hat? Also with the bird blurred in the background >>750251
>Putting polytheistic religions like Wicca, that don't see Jesus as a prophet, above Islam because Muh Crusades, Muh Mudslimes
>Accepting any Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, or Abu Hurairah Hadith as valid
Now this is where the g*orgiafag went wrong
It's not really a meme, just some christ chan art i made, thought you guys would apreciate as a smug reaction image lol. You guys can use it if you want to, in fact it would make me very happy.
That's good anon, but maybe you could remake the mouth. Your Christ-chan is too pale, I don't see her smile.
Hm alright, i'll fix it and post it tomorrow
There you go. Hope you anons use this image, but remember, keep the shitposts christian!
/pol/ memes are a sin. Make OC.
>>Putting polytheistic religions like Wicca, that don't see Jesus as a prophet, above Islam because Muh Crusades, Muh Mudslimes
Better to not know of Jesus than to blaspheme him
make /pol/ christian again!
Start by removing anime.
Only those who've read the original manga can understand this.
Also sola scriptura was the conclusion of theologian from post-reformation. Luther, Calvin and etc. never word by word taught the solas yet they did teach theology by the definitions of them, which is why we also quote church fathers whenever they refer the scriptures is a pillar of the church or that we're justified by faith, not my sanctification (even though it's expected to be practiced)
Can someone make an Orthodox/Eastern Catholic version of this?
I made an Eastern Catholic one
What is this? A png for ants?
>same thing with a crown
Eastern Catholics are closer to Orthodox in pretty much every way except communion with the Roman Church. They have the same doctrine and theology as the EO because the EO are their sister Churches.
>Gnosticism not at the literal bottom of the bottom
Please reconsider. Gnosticism is literally disgusting.
This entire picture is damnable doctrines of devils tier.
KJVO/TRO IFB/Free Grace is the only way.
>demonizing virginity as a christian
>icons aren't the same as statues.
That's a funny meme, the first one
>And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
That's talking about Jesus my dude
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
Same with Matthew 16, literally every other time "rock" is used as not being a literal rock it's talking about God, unless you believe Peter is God.
2 Samuel 22:32 For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?
>who is a rock, save our God?
Is Peter God?
2 Samuel 22:47 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.
1 Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
Actually it's a great argument, because the post-modernists actually accept it, hence why they say that "truth is relative." Viz. they can't say if a truth is true because that implies more knowledge than they think is possible under the constraints presented by material science.
Literally nothing wrong with Mariology
Looks like Jesus isn’t the only one who can walk on water
(Glitch found in Pokemon Black 2)
this is unironically sacrilegious
man I remember one time when I was a kid, I asled one of the sisters in my parish "Who can walk on water?" she obviously said "Jesus" and I gave her grin and said "You forgot about Criss Angel Mindfreak" with the smuggiest voice possible.
She probably forgot about it but I hate myself every time I remember it
So did democracy make the right choice? Had not democracy killed Jesus, would we have been saved?
The story of our Lord's crucifixion is not the story of people doing the right thing. It is the story of people doing wrong to the person who deserved no wrong whatsoever.
>Did democracy make the right choice?
Judas did not make the right choice. Neither did democracy.
It's funny though. Something a kid would say
then is God's plan wrong?
>is God's plan wrong?
Are you daft?
>Implying chivalry isn't weakness
Chivalry is literal pussy worship, it's the inverse of Christian morality, a parody of it
He's right. The idea of "love sanctifying sex" is a Satanic doctrine that needs to die. Love doesn't sanctify sex. Consent doesn't sanctify sex. Marriage is the only thing that makes sex right in the eyes of the Lord, not whether the woman has the tingles.
Except being chivalrous has nothing to do with "pussy worship" and has everything to do with the content of your character. You are confusing being a gentleman with being a chad.
Ah yes, because a story of fictional character discredits thousands of years of honor. You sure got me W O K E to the ebil wahmens and their ebil bagina magick, fellow automaton.
Dude, obviously I'm not against the martial and honorable aspects of chivalry. We're talking about the "chivalric" culture of romance and love, and it began in the high middle ages and has culminated in the shitshow that is feminist society.
Anyone got the Petrine cross meme where it turns upside down cos of a demon ?
I saw it recently but must be a different thread
MGTOW on my board ????? MODS MODS!!!!
Silly, chivalry is when a man acknowledges the weakness of women and helps/respects them for being weaker than them.
pic no. 2 is wrong...Imperial South America was built on us converting and marrying those women.
I'm actually curious about second pic,
but yeah first pic accurate
Saved. Thanks man.
I've seen this meme popping up elsewhere, where did it originate from?

Ayyy, I was that at that age; 5 years later and I’m knees deep in Hell.
>wants to learn latin
It's super easy to obtain information on latin. Just go to your local library and check out a latin textbook. It is potentially free, and incredibly unlikely that someone else will want it. Just don't go past the check in date, and repeatedly recheck it out. If your library doesn't have one, order online. I am partial to Wheelock's latin, myself.
All you need is time and dedication, the latter of which is easy to come by if you genuinely enjoy it. fors bona, o amici.
how accurate is this meme for othrodox christians? i'm still in the process of going to catechism but I didn't really get this feeling. am i too new?
This! This is golden...
Dang. I thought the formatting was messed up which is why it wasn't showing. Guess it just doesnt exist.
Out of curiosity about what Barrabas did, I looked him up.
I'm curious if anyone ever responded to the claims made here, especially under modern views.
Islam is a false teaching, that's all.
More like this? I know there was a science "everything is dust wow science so profound one"
You mean this one?
Those retards fail to ignore that a special pardon was given to Jews during Easter a pardon that Pilate wasn't the first to do it.
And a pardon demands consent from Imperial Rome of course.
Btw Jesus himself was convicted for that crime, which makes sense. The two candidates had to commit a similar crime for the choice to be more impartial.
Who would you release? A thief or a murderous rapist? Of course everyone would pick the rapist.
Now if both of the were rapists the choice had to do with the persons at stake.
As for the fiction part I won't even say a thing other that modernists one day will deny that themselves exist if they keep saying the people they don't like or destroy thekr fantasies don't exist.
first one's funny.
Second one's just mean-spirited
Third one's just ... sigh-worthy
did /islam/ come and visit us or something?
Amazingly, I never knew that.
It's genius is what it is. Accuracy? Well, there have been (or still are) some Orthbros here who have utterly unironically spouted this "everyone is going to heaven" meme. I think it must be some sort of cultish belief within Orthbroism because most Orthbros don't seem to believe it. One seemed to get rather annoyed about it. It's just universalism dressed-up in Orthodox Monk robes, frankly, but it's not the first time Orthbros have had heresy in their midst. But, because Orthbroism is so ... malleable or philosophical theologically, excommunicating someone who preaches this is apparently not a thing. (Mind you, it's pretty much not a thing anywhere except Anderson's meme church to excommunicate, but what evs.)
>failed to post the memes
The last one is so winnie the pooh good.
It is probably just a comment on the Orthodox habit, at least traditionally, of believing oneself to be the worst of sinners and seeing the best in others.
I know there's a few catholic and orthodox versions of this, is there a Baptist one?
>all that garbage you posted about "Orthobros"
Sad but true. The weirdest part of it is that the local Catholic church was playing a translated version of that song yesterday.
Hey, I'm just telling you what I've seen posted over the years. Maybe they're liars – they went to a LOT of trouble quoting this and that to troll us all while faking being Orthbros – and maybe no one Orthish takes them seriously. But I've seen it here.
And if you're objecting to the depiction of Orthbroism as being malleable, face facts, m8, Orthbros are by FAR the most theologically tolerant of the three tribes. Not that y'all tolerate heresy, but that you even have a word for "well, that's a nice theory", so you don't chimp out because someone said Jesus eyes were blue or some innocuous shi- like we Prots and Caths do. Prots are notoriously finicky about doctrine – how do you think we got these 30 billion meme denominations? – and Cathbros … well, finicky about form and muh church.
I'm okay with being wrong, if you insist, but that is my impression from this board and the few Orthbros I have known.
From my own personal experience of being an orthobro for two years now, the theory that the idea of universal salvation is exactly as you described when you say
>well, that's a nice theory
because it is. we're allowed to hope that everyone goes to heaven, but it's certainly not dogma and definitely isn't the majority opinion. it mostly seems to find traction among converts on the internet, as you seem to have noticed.
fun fact the term for these 'nice theories' is theologoumenon - otherwise known as a theologoical opinion
Those are cool and all, but do you have any memes that can be used outside of reddit and instagram?
Could somebody point me to the original version of Agni Parthene being sung in this webm?
Leave us furries alone uwu
>you even have a word for "well, that's a nice theory"
Every denom has theological issues that are a matter of personal opinion, and it's nice to have one word instead of having to say something like matter of personal opinion every time you talk about it. Even if I wasn't Ortho anymore I would be tempted to still use the word theologumena because it's a practical term, except for it's length I guess
You found the source!
lmao am Catholic but this is breddy gud.
>tfw TLM has no faggoty prot songs
>theologoumenon / theologumena
THANK YOU! I was struggling to remember it.
I know I had it written down somewhere, but you can never find … etc
>the theory that the idea of universal salvation is exactly as you described when you say …
the anon I referred to here >>762255 was a LOT more dogmatic or emphatic about it than just "this is my personal opinion", but I am interested that you say:
>we're allowed to hope that everyone goes to heaven
… because you're pretty much rated and shunned as a liberal if you think it in most evanjellybean circles, whereas, per my earlier >>762635 statement, orthbros are a lot less autistic when it comes to people who are clearly wrong.
Not saying this is a good or bad thing – tolerance good; tolerance of outright heresy bad – I just find it interesting that this is how Orthbro-xy has "grown up differently" over the past thousand-plus years.*
* Yes, I know it's "two thousand years old" but it has common roots with most everyone else for the first 500-1000 of those. Chill. It's all good.
cannot see the word "chivalry" without thinking of internet white knightism (pic related)

Former Cat here, that is neither funny nor very accurate.
>call his priest a pedo
What happened if I said your dad was a faggot or your mom an whore?
It is a personal insult, unlike the papist bla bla bla which even makes me laugh at the protestant ignorance.
Also even if we were pedos you imply that we only get mad when someone says the truth, then you admit than every previous insult want true because we didn't react negativity.
There goes then 99% of protestant name calling against us.
also implying there's no pedos in protestant churches. Either they think of the pastor as some kind of semi gods like it happened some months ago in some baptist churches, or if it is a liberal one its ok because the pastor is a official member of the LGBT community
The Goebbels reference was funny, but as for the rest slander. You sure know how to rake in the (you)s
pretty sure he's actually gay
is that a gondola? its comfy
also, does anyone have the expectation vs reality meme that says something "imagine a world with no religion, we could have colonized the galaxy" on one side with a picture of a futuristic civilization and then next to it is the reality which is a bunch of naked protestors and tranny kids?
also, sauce on the song?

>apostles followed the aftermath of the monastic movement
>The absolute state of Prots
>a kiss has to be sexual
this is liberal tier m8
Its a bit dodgy but I think the idea is good
Who said anything about it being sexual? Just two dudes touching their lips together swapping some saliva and germs haha. Lots of guys at the guys bar do that and some of them might not be gay.
The connotations of kissing is purely cultural. Jesus washed other peoples feet all the time. Today if some random guy asked to do that you'd probably think he's a footfag.
Their lips aren't even touching. Stop lewding the Pope, you faggot.
>what are the catacombs
And even St. Luke is said to have draw a painting of Our Lady or something.
Bye, sodoprot! Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
Damn. You probably haven't been this mad since someone tried to read the Bible in their own language. Be assured I will troll this board.
>"waah this board is so mean to innocent little people like me. I dindu nuffin"
>breaks rule 2 by intention
>publicly admits intent to troll the board
Yeah that damn St Jerome made the bible availible for the roman plebs to read.
I'm Anglican and I think Newman was a hero, nevertheless, literally nobody would understand this level of meme.
Quite the contrary, I'm having fun with this. You are also proving that Prots are nothing but trouble and always have been. Just don't fight it, it's a waste of your time which can be better spent worshiping God…but since you don't believe in God it shouldn't matter to you anyway
Every time you sinpost, sodoprot, my prayers for you get more and more intense.
>Be assured I will troll this continent
t. Martin Luther in 1517
Can someone post their best "Begome Orthodox :DDD" macros. I need them.
Wow didn't know making fun of the Pope for making out with a Muslim is a sin or pointing out how your church has killed people for translating the Bible into vernacular. Notice how I wouldn't be so blatantly toxic to accuse a fellow Christian that they don't even believe in God and yet you get no ban. I like the banter but the fact that I get banned all the time and no one else sure is a piss off.
Blatant hypocrisy is a fundamental trait of romanism I suppose.
He was a good boy who dindu nuffin wrong. Quite literally.(USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST)
I got baned again for that lol.
Miss me with that Gnostic shit
They kicked off the gnostics.
That's where all the Baptists who insult Catholicism and /x/-tards go when they get banned from here.
Baptists at lest those who believe in that with their historical revisionism of the angel pastor Jim are a perfect match for /x/tards.
does anyone have that one where its a really strong guy reading his bible and two shriveled up druggies are behind him talking about how hes enslaved to his religion?
I thought that might be the case - out of curiosity what convinces you to remain an Anglican in light of Newmans life and work?

>mfw no comfy gondola animation in a webm
looking through my collection of /christian/ gondola webms, /christian/ really hasn't knocked one out the park yet. The closest is the first vid which is undeniably moving, but needs a Roman soldier moving, or some tears progressing down a face or just something. (Although at 13MB, what the actual fug)
(continued below because webms are too big)
MEANT to be pointing at >>765396 how the fug that went wrong, I'll never know
Crusader gondola aint bad just … jerky animation
Genuflection gondola is probably the better of the two
And this >>770655 of course has something going on, and centres on Christ, too, instead of just gondola, which is a very good choice by anon
(continued below because webms are too big)
The very comfy-est gondolas I ever saw were the comfy seasons. (pic related) winter and (pic related) summer are probably the best
(And not even 6 MB between them, too, which is nice)

That's really good
bit worried about the veneration of Codreanu, tho
he was only a fascist politician. that's all.
no miracles happened through him.
he didn't cure the sick or love the poor
>Didn't love the poor
Actually, that's where you're wrong, in fact he made his militia plow the fields of tenant farmers for the sake of Christ. Really Codreanu was something of a bizarro mix of fascist elements and Christianity, and his martyrdom only cements it. Don't know much else about him though.
I'm really not sure, overall it's a nameless apprehension about Rome. Romophobia if you like. I do however think a great deal more than many Anglicans about Mary. I think they get it wrong; we are given hints throughout the narrative of the Bible that her love for her Son is an allegorical representation of her relationship with the other persons of the Trinity.
lol this ones got the theme from Indy Last Crusade
I don't feel comfortable with this
>a nameless apprehension about Rome. Romophobia if you like
a.k.a. The C.S.Lewis defense.
>if I commit to obeying your Rome now, I will have to obey anything your Rome insists is true in the future (paraphrased obv)
Same. Those kind feel sacrilegious.
Ehh, yeah, sort of
I don't like that gondola
I'm going to pipe up in favour of this gondola. I don't see what could be wrong with it.
Requesting Jesus related meme: He attacc (money changers), He resurrecc, etc, But most importantly he coming bacc
First pic is true. I waited in line for clam chowder, popular US city joint. 1 hour in line, sparked up convo with Saudi Muslim (wahab) next to me. He is ‘devout’ and prays, here for studies, but he admittedly and unashamedly drinks and fornicates etc —modernism overrides their religion in many cases. He didn’t get the renowned, delicious chowder we were waiting on though bc he realized it had bacon bits. The dude was flabbergasted when I explained to him the problem of Jews and usury—It was a long wait for the chowder.
Found it (but I thought I recalled a better one out there)
I get that you didn't mean any disrespect to Christ with this webm dude, but I'm gonna side with the folks who don't like it. Reducing the death of our God to a silly meme-bear feels pretty wrong.
>I get that you didn't mean any disrespect to Christ with this webm dude …
Thank you for at least not flying off the handle, all of you, and expressing discomfort without the vitriol I am so used to here.
I don't mind. I didn't make it, so I'm not hurt by the criticism.
I am a little surprised, since I picked the meme up from a previous meme thread on this very board where it seemed to attract no negative press.
But I get that /christian/ of six months ago is never going to be the /christian/ of today
And I get the reasons belying critiques of today.
Guess I won't post it here again.
I will, however, offer this one thought for your consideration.
We've had some discussions here before about "Christ on other planets". There seems to have been an acceptance, if not a consensus, that Christ could have walked amongst other exo-peoples obviously in their form if they exist that is, if the concept of aliens isn't just the debil's trickery as some asserted
(pic related) spoilered to avoid triggerations
You might see where I am going, but that isn't entirely my point: If Gondola is an artistic expression of humanity, albeit a quirky cartoon one, should we exclude Christ from it? Ought we always cede to non-Christians the entire palette of artistry. And, if not, ought we not make plain, within that context, the most important of Christ's events?
I understand that it may seem to "trivialise" the most important event in all of history, to cartoon-ify the crucifixion, but at the same time it makes the statement that Christ is Christ of everyone and that even the Gondola, mythical cartoon curiosities that they are, have a Christ who died for their sins and is worshiped accordingly.
I don't say this to justify my post or myself. Just asking the question and seeking a reasoned reply.
sorry, wrong choice of word, only meant "underlying"
>If Gondola is an artistic expression of humanity, albeit a quirky cartoon one, should we exclude Christ from it?
What do you think God will think of that on the day of your judgement? I would reflect on that for a while if I were you. God bless.
No, respectfully, this is why I asked. To understand your thinking. I already know my own.
You'd rather not dignify it with an answer, fine.
This can't be real
Baptist or other Evangelical:
"This is my body"
metaphors are direct statements that aren't literally true
Lendo, is that you?
Are you stupid? She's clearly holding one hand further back and simply sliding it forward.
Kek so true.
>my flesh is food indeed and by blook drink indeed
<meh its just a metaphor although Jesus continues to say indeed/truly just to own the shocked pharisees.
>1There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. 3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Jesus is not talking about literally being born again in your mother's womb.
4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8
>10Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. 11The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? 12Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 13Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Jesus is using water as a metaphor.
Jesus is not talking about literal water.
But in John 6, yeah, of course he's talking about His literal flesh and blood. Lol.
Do Catholics even read the Bible?
This is actually a proof of the Catholic doctrine tigga.
Nicodemos got confused because he though Jesus was being literal and Jesus says he just needs to be born from the High and explains what he meant.
In John 6 the Jews got scandalised because Jesus said they had to eat His flesh. How could this be they said.
Jesus could say it was a symbol of some kind, but no, He repeats what He says and says we must eat his flesh and drink his blood indeed (Verum in Latin), He even insists what what he meant before, which prompted the Jews to say his teachings were very hard.
Are you kidding me? The examples you mention couldn't be more opposite.
This is honestly pure delusion. Do you believe Jesus is literally living bread? Because that's what he says right before the part about eating his flesh and drinking his blood.
>which prompted the Jews to say his teachings were very hard.
1) It wasn't the Jews, it was his disciples;
2) He doesn't keep insisting that's what he meant, he rebukes them for being offended by his words.
For Pete's sake, look at verse 58:
>This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
This exactly parallels John 3:13-14. You are crazy.
Yes He is the Bread of Life that came down from heaven.
In the Eucharistic Sacrifice Christ is really there under the accidents of bread and wine.
>This exactly parallels John 3:13-14. You are crazy.
No you're the one who is crazy
<nicodemos thinks he needs to go back to his mother's womb
<Jesus tells him he doesn't. He needs to be born from the high.
<I am the Bread of Life and you shall eat my flesh and blood
<people there start wondering how is that possible to eat one man's flesh. Ridiculous.
If he was in the mood of John 3 we would have said something claiming it was symbolic like the image of being born again, but not literally as going back to the womb.
But here Jesus repeats the same things and adds the word truly eat my flesh.
No one uses a metaphor by adding indeed/truly.
When Jesus says he is the door, he means metaphorically and explains why he resembles a door. If he said I am truly a door that would mean that he actually meant he was a real door.
>>This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
Thank you for proving my point.
And John 4 says the same thing. That whomever has Christ will thrist no more.
The water he gives us (baptism), he doesn't claim he is the water, or that the water is hhis bodybor blood or something.
yeah, I’m a Christian, you got a problem with that? I used to be a sinner like you but 2 years ago I found GOD. In my teens I would laugh at creationists; I would always tell my grandma that I didn’t want to go to mass; I was agnostic but not like r/Atheism. But when I GREW UP and became a man, I realised I needed to put childish things away (1 Corinthians 13:11). Why is that? Because I realized that we need Christianity to SAVE THE WEST. After I voted Trump in the 2016 election I decided to go to church again. I knew that I would find a QT pure Christian GF who I could lose my virginity to (I haven’t lost it yet because I’m saving myself for marriage, like God intended). I haven’t found her yet, but like Job I will pray and have faith in God. Then I saw Jordan Peterson talking about Christianity and I was hooked! (I don’t like him anymore though, he’s a fake Christian). I watched all his videos on the bible and realised how God reveals himself in many ways. I was on /pol/ (came from r/The_Donald during the election but I hate redditors now) Christian General and I saw /lit/ chart which had The Bible and I KNEW I found my people. Every day I see THE WEST falling because we gave up our FAITH. Well, the new Christian intellectuals are coming; We are the sons of the Crusaders and we shall not recoil before the sons of Voltaire! (Candide was shit, so is Nietzsche (haven’t read either of them)). /lit/ introduced me to Kierkegaard and I became a KNIGHT OF FAITH, so now I know that I just gotta believe and that’s TRUE bravery. I read DANTE and DOSTOEVSKY and I saw the beauty of God and true art. I’m a proud Catholic (Protestants are heretics) but I hate Pope Francis, he’s a heretic and isn’t MY Pope. /lit/ is a Christian board, and I know that if I just keep recommending the Bible, telling people to go to church, and making threads about how great God is, I will finally be able to sincerely believe in God and distract myself from the gnawing feeling that I’m a fraud. Faith ain’t easy.
If John 6 is related to the Lord's supper, yes that's how metaphors work.

Man, step your game up at least.
Not to mention in that chapter Christ said the flesh is useless, and the reason for the eucharist is to practice a memorial celebration: "do this (consuming the bread and wine) in remembrance of Me" not to obtain more grace.
Shame it's from a Mormon, but that's nice and so very true
Far more accurate
it's widely considered to be the first icon
This is practically blasphemy considering they put all this stuff on an image with Jesus Christ in it.
Highest degree of shitposting, anon.
>Candide is shit
>Nietzsche is shit
Depends a lot on the work. Philosophy in the Tragic Age of the Greeks is great.
When most Christians talk about Nietzsche they're generally referring to Thus Spoke Zarathustra.
On that note I've always found it rather amusing that most nihilists act like Christianity is all sunshine and roses though. Wonder if any of them have ever actually read Ecclesiastes… It doesn't get read in most churches very often because of how it is, so I don't think most people Nietzsche's audience in particular have had that much exposure to it. Meanwhile, as a cynical christian it's one of my favorite books in the entire Bible, behind the NT and Job.
but catholics argue that doing a confession out of fear of hell is lesser than doing it out of love of God
Catholics will argue about everything
Split the difference and do it out of fear of God. God is to be both feared and loved.
He became a saint in the Romanian Orthodox Church for his martyrdom for God.
>christianity is just baganism in a new coat
>t. Judaizing SDA heretic
Can confirm, former SDA. We unironically believe that lie. So glad I left that heretical sect to come back go Jesus' one and only church the Catholic church :)
eh those things are perfectly fine for new and prospective Orthodox people, not everyone is a cradle Orthodox.
I'm just saying this because it makes me feel personally attacked haha.
Could you answer me one thing?
What's does the SDA believes nowadays? Do they believe now in the divinity of Christ or are they still non trinitarians?
If that's the case how do they justify worshipping their Jesus if they don't believe he is God? Isn't that idolatry? "Thou shalt worship only the Lord Thy God."
It's called imperfect vs perfect contrition
Look it up niqqa, every Catholic should know it because it's a fundamental part to the act of contrition prayer prayed during confession
It's missing the bloomer part. A JW/LDS knocking on the door
>completely changes the subject
When I left the SDA they were Arians. I don't know if they changed anything nowadays and, frankly, I don't care. They get the lake of fire like any other prot heretic, tbh.
>When I left the SDA they were Arians
Shit lad. Funny thing they acuse catholics of being pagans when they worship what they think that is a creature. Just.
Is it true? winnie the pooh satanic fags
i've got half of it.
I agree, the hubris of the SDA as with all prots will be their downfall.
Pic is so true.
It's refreshing to see a pope talking like that tbh.
>YoU kNow wHo eLSe rEadS BoOkS? Da pAGanS!
I fell in love with a Christian copy pasta so I heavily reworked it to make fun of fake Christians
It's not that funny tbh
Maybe instead of complaining you could…oh, i dunno…post something better?
False equivalency. It isn't impossible to believe that catholics compiling the word of God is perfectly in line with God's plan, but their insistence in following the traditions of man instead of the Bible is heretical. The word of God is the word of God, it doesn't matter who compiled it.
>it doesn't matter who compiled it.
Yes it does. To compile the Bible one had to to be open the Holy Spirit and his guidance.
>complains about muh traditions of man
>while literally following the traditions of a man named Luther
Wew bible idolaters
i appreciate the sentiment but that graphic burns my eyes.
I agree, the catholics were guided by the holy spirit when compiling the Bible, but they have since then left that guidance.
Luther's "traditions" were not novel ideas, they are entirely within scripture, unlike many of the things catholics teach.
I didn't come here for an argument though and I don't want this to become another interdenominational warzone, the meme thread should be about good memes shared between brothers in christ. Can we agree to disagree and get along with doing the Lord's work?
So things that the Catholic church practiced at the time God approved of? Such as having a Pope and observing the Eucharist literally?
I could've worded that better. What I meant to say is that compiling the Bible was guided by the holy spirit, but all the extra traditions not found in the Bible aren't. Allow me to explain why I believe some of their traditions aren't scriptural:
>Jesus died on the cross once for all of our sins
>He even declared "it is finished" when He did
>as He died, the veil of the temple was torn
>that veil previously separated the laypeople from God, only priests could go through it to sacrifice to God
>however, Jesus is now our high priest, and He is our one and only mediator between man and God
>the veil tearing is symbolic of how anyone can now approach God through Jesus
>switching gears a bit, let's look at the eucharist
>catholics believe the eucharist is literally Christ's body and blood
>they sacrifice Christ at the mass, even saying "may the Lord accept this sacrifice at your hands, for the praise and glory of His name, for our good and the good of all this holy church"
>by sacrificing Jesus again at the mass, they're basically saying that His one death on the cross wasn't enough to atone for our sins, even though He said "it is finished"
>the Bible even tells us that the eucharist is supposed to be celebrated in memory of Jesus, not as a sacrifice
>Jesus told us to "do this in remembrance of me"
That's the more compelling reasons for why I think the catholic church is wrong in their theology. I know, I'm just a layperson and I'm not a theologian, but these ideas come from theologians who have put in a lot more study of the Bible and church history than I have. But if you have some legitimate arguments against what I've said here I'd gladly have a civil discussion about our respective beliefs.
Aren't there missing books mentioned in the Bible but that we don't actually have? Sola scriptura just seems quite naive.
That's not to defend papism but protestants have cut themselves off from apostolic tradition and the early church fathers.
I'm not sure about missing books, but some protestants actually do read the early Church fathers (I know baptists do, idk about others). And you'll see from the early Church fathers that the early Church was the gathering of believers, yes it had a structure (for what organized group of people doesn't have at least some structure?) but it's not the hierarchy the Roman church would claim. The church fathers often debated about matters of faith, and they would turn to scripture to see who was right. Despite what apostolics will claim, sola scriptura is biblical, as 2 Timothy 3:16-17 would point out: "All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work". Note that it says that the man of God may be made "complete, equipped for every good work" with scripture, meaning that any tradition outside of scripture isn't necessary for righteousness.
I can't really answer your points on said theology because I'm not a Catholic, the idea is simply a point I came up with while trying to figure out what church is The One True Church™, as it seems absurd to say that "This specific point in time is when the Bible was correctly compiled" without knowing and being able to prove that God himself endorsed it, because if we do that then we have no more basis of proof of our believes than the various heretical cults that claim they have the word of God.
If you would like a proper discussion on the points you made, I'd suggest making a thread so the meme thread isn't filled by off-topic debate, as I'd like to hear such debate.
I agree we shouldn't let the meme thread get off topic, and that's kinda my bad for starting it down that route. No more discussion from me here, but here's a meme to try and get the thread back on track.
I don't think that quote defends sola scriptura which is a radical doctrine that nothing can be taught but the Bible and that any early church commentaries on what it means have to be thrown out.
Of course scripture speaks truth but all the different schismatic groups of Protestantism ironically interpret scripture it in different ways. I think we have to admit scripture isn't self explainatory and it has to be commented on.
What attracted me to Orthodoxy is its claims to being closest to the early church teachings.
I feel like we could use a bingo card for how predictable the new ager/pagan/whatever posters are, feel free to add or change anything. They keep bringing up the same debunked arguments, this can be used on other boards as well.
friend? are you okay?
Lol we can use that as a "Charlie's greatest hits"
>ur god iz a jooish demon
>Zeus is muh god of the world

Good, but they should be answers to common false beliefs people have instead of their common jargon.
We should add “muh Semitic religion”, “Jesus Christ = Zeus-Krishna” and “Licifer is the true Aryan god”; all of the above I’ve seen in a few threads on 4ch and 8ch /pol/ and used as legit arguments against Christianity.
I'm requesting that one that compares christians on real life vs christians on the internet.
Thanks in advance.
"muh ancestors" really should be there, it's so common
Why is "muh ancestors" wrong?
Because they think that their ancestors unironically wanted to dance in the mud instead of convert to Christianity and build civilization.
I meant using "muh ancestors" as an argument that you should follow this specific pagan religion

Someone got the "You better start believing in biblical prophecy; you are in one"? I could really use that now along with some other dank stuffs the old thread got.
Thank you, brother.
