\\Cluny and Ignatius, about 1-1/2 years ago I was watching a documentary.\\

And nearly 40 years ago, I saw the movie MARJOE, which runs about 2 hours. At first I thought they were examples of demonic possession.

This deep research told me all I needed to know about Pentecostals and Charismatics.

So you watched a movie (possibly on TV)? Many of our SERVICES take longer than what you doubtless saw.

\\Both the RCC and Orthodox Church are against salvation through faith alone.\\

So is the Bible, mima.
---Cluny on 3/2/11


(Rob)-

It was YOU who said that you have study and have done "research" concerning Orthodoxy. Doing research does NOT involves watching a short documentary only, and not reading books, talking to people, etc. You will fail miserabliy in any college course. You have NOT study Orthodoxy or RCC. End of Story.

Sorry to burst your bubbles, but my parish Priest tell his congregation to read/study Scriptures everyday. Orthodoxy encourages that. So I don't need those that God giften in the ministry of teaching, but I should follow your dogmas, practices, and interpretations of Scriptures?

Face it Rob, you are just mad that I do not follow your ways of thinking like a obedient dog.

Both the RCC and Orthodox Church are against salvation through faith alone. They are also united in many other ways their falling out was brought about by the refusal of the Orthodox Church people except the authority of the Pope in Rome. All this is common knowledge.
---mima on 3/2/11


Rob* Ruben, there are many of them.

The very things CHRIST HIMSELF rebuked the PHARIISEES of doing, you will see being done in RCC, Orthodox, Protestant, and other Churches.

Jesus was not condemning all traditions. He condemned only those that made Gods word void. It was a matter of the Pharisees making a pretended dedication of their goods to the Temple so they could avoid using them to support their aged parents. By doing this, they dodged the commandment to Honor thy father and mother.
---Ruben on 3/2/11




Ignatius, why would myself or anyone else want to read books written by so called Orthodox Christians, when in the past you said we received the BIBLE from some Orthodox Council of Men.

What is the difference between the Orthodox, and those of the Word Of Faith Movement who tell people they don't need to study the BIBLE, but need to purchase and read their books, along with purchasing and listening to their CD's?
---Rob on 3/2/11


Cluny and Ignatius, about 1-1/2 years ago I was watching a documentary.

I honestly thought the documentary was about the RCC until an Orthodox Priest said it was about the Orthodox Church!


So now we know the true depth of the research Rob claimed when he said "I have done research on both the RCC and Orthodox Church. There is very little difference between the two

Iggy: Sure, I believe those things. But, I quoted the words of Jesus, whom you claim to believe. Do you disagree with His assertion that those in the majority are headed in the wrong direction?
---jerry6593 on 3/2/11


Rob, you are correct. Most of the Eastern Orthodox and the RCC matters of faith are mostly the same. Ignatius points to only some of the matters of faith we all believe in, not because they do, but because they are in Scripture. They are like the Jehovah Witnesses who also have many matters of faith correct but the most essential they don't. And you are right also that many Protestant Churches have gone back to what the RCC teaches, salvation by works. If the Eastern Churches differed from the RCC, Igantius and Cluny would not be answering for the RCC all the time. I have not seen many subjects talked about where they are oppose to their teachings.
---Mark_V. on 3/2/11


"I honestly thought the documentary was about the RCC until an Orthodox Priest said it was about the Orthodox Church!

This is why along with some of the statements you both have made in the past, I see very little differenct between the RCC and Orthodox Church." (Rob)

In other words, you have not read any Orthodox books written by Baptized/Christmated Orthodox Christians or clergy members (especially those that outline the difference between our churches), or even visited several Orthodox parishes and spoken to it's parish priest to better understand Orthodoxy. Gotcha.

And let me guess Rob, you believe that you correctly interpret Scriptures (despite your disconnection to the Ancient Christians who received it from the hands of the Apostles, interpreted it, and worshiped with it)?

"If anyone in these churches is willing to call upon the Lord to save them it is my belief that the Lord will save them. What is your opinion?" (Mima)

Sorry to burst your bubbles, Mima, but those in Orthodoxy that follow/worship God in Spirit and in Truth, do this everyday (prayers for repentance is part of our Morning and Evening prayers). In fact, we do this (and are encourage to do so by our parish Priests) in every Divine Liturgy.

In our Divine Liturgies, one can find prayers for repentance and the need of our constant communion with God.

Does this upset you Mima?

"Donna: Excellent point on "majority opinion". Jesus himself said that the majority are characteristically in the wrong, as:" (Jerry6538)

So you don't believe in the Holy Trinity? You don't believe that the Son of God has come in the flesh? That he died, was crucified, and rose from the dead? That he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father? That he will come again, to judge both the living and the dead? That his kingdom will have no end? Do you believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeded from the Father (and who is worshiped and glorified), and who spoke to the prophets?

"I have done research on both the RCC and Orthodox Church. There is very little difference between the two
---Rob on 3/1/11"

Name several books you have read from Orthodox laity/clergy members. Also name several Orthodox churches you have visited and personally talked to the parish priests, etc.

The mere fact that you believe Orthodoxy is very close to RCC shows your ignorance of both churches. We both differ in a fundamental way in ecclesiology, theology, soteriology, among other areas.

Actually, Rob, Orthodoxy is closer in dogma/practices to the other Ancient Eastern Churches (i.e., the non-chalcedonian churches, the Assyrian Church of the East, etc) than do the Roman Church.

Mima, a person is SAVED THROUGH FAITH IN CHRIST AND CHRIST ALONE, Galatians Chapters One and Two.

Those people who believe they are SAVED by following the RELIGIONS, TRADITIONS, RITUALS, REGULATIONS, DOTRINES, ETC WHICH HAVE BEEN CREATED BY MEN, are the very people who are DECEIVED BY SATAN and THE SERVANTS OF SATAN, 2 Corinthans Chapter 11.

Tell me one place where Jesus, His Disciples, Paul, Moses or any servant of God prayed for the dead in Scripture.

"Peter sent them all out of the room, then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, Tabitha, get up. She opened her eyes" (Acts 9:40)

"When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, Lazarus, come out!(Jhn 11:43)

" Then he stretched himself out on the boy three times and cried out to the LORD, LORD my God, let this boys life return to him! The LORD heard Elijahs cry, and the boys life returned to him, and he lived. He gave him to his mother and said, Look, your son is alive! ( 1 Kings 17:17-24)

Rob, I believe that is a terrible thing to say to Ignatius and Cluny, because if satan blinded them, they are not responsible for their actions, Satan is. I oppose many of their views in matters of faith. When they take stabs at Protestants, I know they do it because people question their believes. They are responsible for that, and if Satan is at fault, then they are not responsible at all. Romans 1:10-16 says
"For Gentiles who do not have a law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although having the law, are a law unto themselves. Who show the work of the law written in their hearts. (and hear this) their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them."

"This is YOUR belief and that of the RCC." (Donna66)

Now, hold on there Donna. Such a belief can be found in:

A) The Old Testament (books such as 2nd Maccabees, which is consider Scriptures by the African Jews and the majority of Christians today)/Ancient Judaism (can be found in the Jewish Talmud)

B. In the writings of the Ancient Christians/Fathers.

C) In the Ancient Church Liturgies (such as the Divine Liturgies of Saint James, Saint Basil, etc)

Since such a belief can be traced to Ancient Judaism, it was not invented by the RCC as some wrongly believe.

This IS a Apostolic doctrine, believed by all till the 16th century.

\\Do you pray for those already dead? Can you change them? Why do YOU ask forgiveness for their sins?
---Donna66 on 2/23/11
\\

Because following the Jewish practice, we believe that GOD will change them. His power is not limited by mere physical death, as the Resurrection of Christ shows.

Prayers and good works done in the name of the faithful departed are seen as fruits of their repentance that ripened after physical death.

This is the teaching of ALL Christians and churches until the Reformation in the West.

Leslie-
Eze 18:2-4 "What do you mean when you use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying: 'The fathers have eaten sour grapes, And the children's teeth are set on edge'?

"As I live," says the Lord GOD, "you shall no longer use this proverb in Israel.
"Behold, all souls are Mine, The soul of the father As well as the soul of the son is Mine, The soul who sins shall die.


Your ancestors are either forgiven already or are paying the penalty for their sins. Do you pray for those already dead? Can you change them? Why do YOU ask forgiveness for their sins?
---Donna66 on 2/23/11


YES, it is Biblical and natural too. You are likely not going to favour preferentially the children of a person that had treated you very wickedly. The curse-breaker is the Lord Jesus Christ, when you become truly part of HIS body, generational curses will no longer affect you as those who are out of HIS body.
---Adetunji on 2/21/11


Sin has consequences. If I drink and do drugs those chemicals are in my blood, so if I reproduce having a child, my polluted blood which is in my body and in my seed will be passed on to the seed I produce, and the child will have been born exposed to the alcohol and drugs that I have ingested. Like weeds in a garden, if you do not root them out they will infect the whole garden, or like leaven in a lump of dough will also leaven the whole lump to where none is not leavened. It is worthless to ask God to forgive a dead person, but you can ask God to forgive you of all sin and the damage of sin from your ancestors which may have also crippled your relationship with Jesus and ask him to restore you to holiness.
---Eloy on 2/17/11


To answer the original question, no they are not.

This is discussed in both Jeremiah and Ezekiel. Do a King James search of the phrase "sour grapes."

As the Orthodox Church sings, "When the women disciples of the Lord learned from the angel the joyful news of the Resurrection, THEY CAST AWAY THE ANCESTRAL CURSE."

---Linda on 2/17/11


Larry,I had never heard that about the Kennedys,but I agree with you its nonsense. You are also right punishment from God is always on the sinner,and blessings on those who love and obey God. Since the Old Testament is our teacher of what God wills,wants,I should say expects,and does concerning his people,and the New Testament says the things under the Old Covenant are gone,passed away,the handwriting of ordinances were nailed to the cross,those are the very reasons there are no more family curses. There is learned behavior which goes from generation to generation and there are physical Genetics which are passed down but those are not from a curse. God said its gone so its gone.
---Darlene_1 on 8/3/09


Darlene interesting. I believe both versus are perfectly matched and consistent and not in conflict with God's promises.
Try this on for size.
For the unrepentent curses will pass on to the 3rd and 4th generations, but curses will not fall on the contrite and obedient heart. Anyway that is the explanation I received.

I have heard people use the seeming curse
from Exodus 4:20-21 to explain the tragedy's befallen on the Kennedy men. It may be nonsense but I've heard it.
---larry on 8/2/09


Darlene 1 - You are NOT lined up with the Bible. The Bible says that when we do NOT obey God and His commands, or when we do NOT bless Israel and the Jews - we put curses on ourselves. Just because Jesus died and rose again does NOT mean we are free from curses, ONLY the curse (penalty) of sin and death. The Bible says that the sins of the Father can be visited on the children even to the fourth generation. When we and our forefathers disobey God's commands (that still MUST be obeyed today) there is a curse that comes on us. This is ALL lined up with the Bible. Just because Jesus died does NOT mean that our forefathers or us no longer disobey God, ALL people still disobey God on a daily basis.

Leslie,you are misinformed. Andrew gave all of you the Bible scriptures which prove you are wrong if you say Generational curses are passed from parents to children. The Bible makes it clear,believe it. Ezekiel 18:20 (but read the whole chapter)The soul that sinneth it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father,neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him,and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. God removed that proverb, EZ.18:2,3,4 people used proverb the fathers have eaten sour grapes and the childrens teeth are set on edge. As I live, saith the Lord GOD,ye shall not have occasion,anymore to use this proverb in Israel.the soul that sinneth,it shall die.
---Darlene_1 on 8/1/09


Generational Curses ARE Biblical. The Bible talks about the sins of the father are visited on the children even to the fourth generation. You are NOT responsible for what they did, but ARE responsible for how you respond. You MUST confess, repent (denounce) and ask for forgiveness of ALL the sins of your forefathers, and then forgive (release) them. This will bring freedom.
---Leslie on 7/30/09


I have seen personality disorders, diseases, and behavior passed down as family curses.


Isaiah 53 & Isaiah 61:1-3.When one accepts Mashiach they are responsible for their own sins under New Covenant.

however, just as their are community sins, there are certinally family sins against Elohim and others. Exodus 20:5 & 34:7.

Someone must turn around and set the family name straight at times. Meaning a new generation of God lovers and followers.

Forgiveness, Reconciliation and retribution are certainly seen and practiced today.
---Yochanan on 7/28/09


Original sin. Sentance passed is man toils ground and woman has pain in childbirth. Expelled from Eden. Jesus came. Pre sin, man has good condition. If christ redeemed you from this, then why do you still have to toil land and women have pain in childbirth? Ever consider? You can't say that the blessings from Deut. carry forward and the curses don't from the same scriptural base unless you are picking and choosing what it says. Generational curses do and can exist. The church hides in ignorance and for the most part is about as spiritual as a sweet potato. Did Jesus cast out demons or was he just confused? Did he raise the dead or was that a show? Just because you haven't experienced something is arrogant to think you know so much.

Bob Larson's ministry has demonstrated over and over that Christian's can have demons and have curses on their lives. Yes Jesus has taken away the curse but that's positional truth. I believe breaking generational curses in our lives is a part of working out our own salvation as the NT commands us. The children of Israel were given the promise land but they hand to go and possess the land. Not everything is automatic. Let's not be dogmatic and consider the others point of view especially if it's coherent and logical. I have had a curse remove from my life after I became a Christian. I know generational curses are real.
---jeff on 5/6/09


The references to the "iniquities" (failures) of "the fathers" refer to "fathers" of the faith. The fathers will always remain GUILTY for their own failures (no one else), but the children (future generations) will also end up dealing with the effects of that failure (if the child rejects/hates The Lord like the father did).

God is specifically talking about Israelites (Leviticus 26:42, "my covenant with Jacob") about having "gods" before Him (He is a JEALOUS God).


Deuteronomy 5:9

"shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God".

Just as a spouse gets JEALOUS if you show attention to another, so does God get JEALOUS.

This is what happens when you incorporate the Law in with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Confusion. Everyone is running to have generational curses broken off of themselves when it is their own sin that needs repenting of. Looking for a scapegoat, always looking for someone else to place the blame on for your own sin is not the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

---Leslie on 1/4/07


Generational curses happen in non-believer's life. Example, the children of non believers that have a disposition for alcohol will in many cases have been born with that disposition or bent towards that "enticement" and they will reap the consequences if they act out and live that lifestyle. They are being punished for their own sins, not the sins of their ancestors.

Generational curses are real and do not go away just by accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior. Surely, some of the Israelites in the desert repented along the way but God still made them all wander. To get a curse removed, you have to accept Jesus as Lord and then be extremely, consistently obedient to His will, not just lukewarm. It still may not happen in your lifetime, but your obedience may free your children from the curse.

Generational curses are different from the curse of the law because they are Nation, tribe family and person specific. Its like a spiritual genetic inheritance. They occur when an ancestor is cursed or does evil. When you see a praticular evil cycle pattern,it means the family has a generational curse to deal with and needs deliverance.The blood of Jesus Christ is sufficient

"CHRIST redeemed us from the curse of the law ..." (Galatians 3:13)

Generational curses ARE curses therefore we are redeemed from them, Christ took away the curse. His blood paid the price for our freedom and "IF the Son sets you free, you shall be free indeed." (John 8:36)

Genrerational curses effect the unregenerate born of Adam, but not the redeemed born of Christ. Please read Jeremiah 31:29-34; Ezekiel 18; II Corinthians 5:17.

Generational Cruses, OT ,not NT.God removed them, shown in Ezekiel 18:20,The soul that sinneth,it shall die,The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father,neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son;the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.What you see in families is learned behavior,monkey see-monkey do,not generational curses.Christians need to quit following OT beliefs/practices,they don't apply to NT Gentile Christians.

Generational Curses are a reality but can be broken. Ask the Lord for forgiveness, ask Him to deliver you, your family and the generations to follow from the curse that befell your ancestors. Ask Him to break the curse and send it to a barren desert bound and chained where it may do no one any harm ever again. Remove it as far from you as the east is from the west. Ask that the Lord return to you 100 fold what the devil has stolen. Ask the Lord to restore all that was stolen to you and you family.

We will all stand individually in front of CHRIST on judgement day,being accountable for our own sins,and not for what our family has done,if that is the case,we would have to go all the way back to our great,great,great granfather,ADAM...GOD is the only one who has the ability to bless our lives or to curse our lives,but there go i for the grace of GOD,
