\\Sir, with all do respect to you, you have refused to answer the question state whether you believe the sacrifice is, "Propitiatory."\\

You answer mine first: Have you stopped beating your wife yet?

Simply answer yes or no.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

3. Ruben could never provide us the context of John 6.

LOVE---take a bible classes next time:)
---Ruben on 6/24/16


Cluny states, "I've given you what the ORTHODOX believe from an unimpeachably Orthodox source."

Sir, with all do respect to you, you have refused to answer the question state whether you believe the sacrifice is, "Propitiatory."

So everyone understands if Brendan and Cluny denies that the mass is not, "Propitiatory." then they are not saying Jesus is to be offered again and again, but if they believe it does then they are indeed stating that Jesus is to be offered again and again.

Note, Cluny refused to answer, but on the blog, "What is Real Presence." he said that the mass is not, "Propitiatory."
---john9346 on 6/23/16


questions that were never answered:

1. Cluny never told us if he believe that the mass is a "Propitiatory Sacrifice."

Note, asked Multiple Times as well as Previously Denied on a Prior Blog...

2. Cluny never told us Biblically the meaning of the word in jn 19:30, "Tetelestai."

3. Ruben could never provide us the context of John 6.

4. Both Brendan and Cluny seem to be conflicted with their own sources/authorities as well as not "Forthcoming."over whether the mass is a "Propitiatory Sacrifice."

5. I do not believe Brendan and Cluny understand propitiatory means Jesus is to be offered again and again.

John 9346 said, "The Council of Trent Session 22 Canon 3"

John, you seem to glory in looking up passages in old Roman Catholic texts, and presenting them as the very last word in Catholic Theology.

If you really want to do that, then constrain yourself to the 7 Ecumenical Councils, and the writings of the Ante-Nicene, Nicene, and post Nicene Fathers.

Even Saints can make mistakes, and some of the writings out of Trent have fallen away from the Truth preached by Jesus.
---Monk_Brendan on 6/22/16




John 9346 (although only labelled "John" said, ""Based on the following is the "Eukarist." a Propitiatory Sacrifice yes or no gentlemen??"

John, you have asked this question before. I have given you the best answer. Now leave it alone, as that is the only answer you are going to get from me.
---Monk_Brendan on 6/22/16


john9346* Sir, these questions were answered read a little prior also on the blog "What is Real Presence." Leon did a great job responding to you see reply 73 of that blog.

Which I did not get a chance to answer,

Ruben:
Q. ...why [say] flesh & blood!
A. Figure of speech (metaphor)

" For my flesh is TRUE food and my blood is TRUE drink" V55

Figure of speech,ok:)

Jesus said (LK 22): "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you."
A. The cup was symbolic of when He would literally shed His blood & die...

Why not say ' This represents my blood"? Maybe because he did shed his blood!
---Ruben on 6/22/16


\\Sir, the source you cited doesn't address if the mass is a "Propitiatory Sacrifice." \\

That's because the Divine Liturgy being a "propitiatory sacrifice" is a non-issue for Orthodox.

We don't even think that way. Your question is on the level of, "Have you stopped beating your wife yet? Simply answer yes or no."

I've given you what the ORTHODOX believe from an unimpeachably Orthodox source.

I'm sorry you're not satisfied with the answer.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 6/22/16


Ruben:

"" It is finish", Jesus did what he said out to do.""

Tell us, what did Jesus set out to do? This question will answer your question to me.

"Jesus the bread of life.."

Sir, are you telling us that Jn 6 in context is Jesus the Bread of Life.

"
Whose flesh was Jesus talking about?
What was so hard for them to understand?
What words give Spirit and life?"

Sir, these questions were answered read a little prior also on the blog "What is Real Presence." Leon did a great job responding to you see reply 73 of that blog.

Also, I addressed your question verse by verse see blog, "Literally Or By Symbols."

John 9346 said, "5. I am waiting for Brendan and Cluny to tell us if they deny that the mass is a "Propitiatory Sacrifice."
(yes or no)"


The Sacrifice of the Mass involves something that can only understood by faith, through the Holy Spirit.

As I have stated before, the Mass (or any of the Pre-Reformation liturgies) by the Grace of God, takes one up from where a person is, and takes him back in time to the Last Supper--to the Crucifixion--to the Heavenly Banquet before the Throne of God.

Yes, it is Propitiatory, but not the way you are trying to get me to say. The Sacrifice was once for all, it is never repeated, but is nonetheless new every time.
---Monk_Brendan on 6/21/16




john9346* 3. I am waiting for Ruben to explain to us all what occurred on the cross in accordance to the uttered words, "Tetelestai." in jn 19:30

" It is finish", Jesus did what he said out to do. Die so we can live in eternally with him. Do you think we no longer have nothing else to do? Pls answer!

john9346* 4. I am waiting for Ruben to tell us all the context of Jn 6.

Jesus the bread of life..
How many times did he say " Eat my flesh and drink my blood"

I am still waiting for John to answer my questions:)

In case you overlooked them,

Whose flesh was Jesus talking about?
What was so hard for them to understand?
What words give Spirit and life?
---Ruben on 6/21/16


--If any one saith, that the sacrifice of the mass is only a sacrifice of praise and of thanksgiving, or, that it is a bare commemoration of the sacrifice consummated on the cross, but not a propitiatory sacrifice, or, that it profits him only who receives, and that it ought not to be offered for the living and the dead for sins, pains, satisfactions, and other necessities, let him be anathema.

The Council of Trent Session 22 Canon 3
---john9346 on 6/21/16


Cluny states twice, "I have nothing to add to it."

Sir, the source you cited doesn't address if the mass is a "Propitiatory Sacrifice."

On the blog, "What is Real Presence." you said that the mass wasn't a "Propitiatory Sacrifice."

Are you now withdrawing what you Previously Stated.
---john9346 on 6/21/16


Brendan states, "Forgive me, John 9346, but the error is Mr. O'Brien's."

With much respect to you sir, if I didn't know any better I would accept your statement to be truth,however, Mr. O'brien is only stating what the Council of Trent said regarding the mass.

Trent said that the mass is a "Propitiatory Sacrifice." and announced "Anathema." on whoever didn't believe it.

If the mass is a "Propitiatory Sacrifice." then the rc/melkite/eastern orthodox are attempting to offer Jesus again and again "Blasphemous."
---john9346 on 6/21/16


\\In your view, propitiatory or not.
---john9346 on 6/20/16\\

Forgive me, John 9346, but the error is Mr. O'Brien's.

We are told that there was ONE Sacrifice for all time.

Heb 10:11-13 says, 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God,

13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

Mr. O'Brien is in ERROR.
---Monk_Brendan on 6/21/16


cluny & other Catholics: "AGain [?], this boils down to WHO determines which interpretations are the correct ones."

BUMPF! The Bible (for example) clearly states that the Seventh-day Sabbath is the LORD'S DAY, but Catholics and Catholic-lites insist that Sunday is the Lord's day. This is not a matter of interpretation, it is a matter of placing post-Apostolic tradition above Scripture, and is a blatantly false contrivance.


---Jerry6593 on 6/21/16


cluny said, "As I recall, john9346, you said this once before, and I told you this is NOT the teaching of the Orthodox Church."

Well sir, if you believe the sacrifice is "Propitiatory." then it is indeed offering Jesus again and again according to the Scriptures...

If you are denying the sacrifice is "Propitiatory." then it is not offering Jesus again and again tell us what do you believe.

In your view, propitiatory or not.
---john9346 on 6/20/16

john9346* Lord Jesus meant prior to 63 there were many questions that he answered in vs 63.

Again I ask: " The flesh is no avail"

Whose flesh is Jesus speaking of ?

" The words I have spoken to you give Spirit and life?

What words give Spirit and life?

BTW- The word Spirit is never use symbolic.

john9346* Also, note, the communion wasn't even established during this time.

But eating his flesh and drink his blood was!

john9346* Also, the greek word is flesh here not body.

So when scripture tells us in gospel of John 1:14 " And the word became flesh " it was nothing to do with his body, really!

Also, the greek word to eat is (trogon)gnaw,chew.
---Ruben on 6/20/16


John 9346 quoted, " "WHEN THE PRIEST PRONOUNCES THE TREMENDOUS WORDS OF CONSECRATION, HE REACHES UP INTO HEAVENS, BRINGS CHRIST DOWN FROM HIS THRONE, AND PLACES HIM UPON OUR ALTAR TO BE OFFERED UP AGAIN AS THE VICTIM FOR THE SINS OF MAN."

This is not the teaching of the Catholic Churches--although I must admit that I heard similar bumpf from the nuns that that taught me in second grade.

What happens is that through the Divine Liturgy (or Mass) we who are present are lifted up in space and time and brought to the heavenly Banquet Table or perhaps back to The Last Supper, where we may partake of the Body and Blood of Christ, given one time for all men.
---Monk_Brendan on 6/20/16


"WHEN THE PRIEST PRONOUNCES THE TREMENDOUS WORDS OF CONSECRATION, HE REACHES UP INTO HEAVENS, BRINGS CHRIST DOWN FROM HIS THRONE, AND PLACES HIM UPON OUR ALTAR TO BE OFFERED UP AGAIN AS THE VICTIM FOR THE SINS OF MAN."

"the priest brings Christ down from heaven, and renders Him present on our altar as the eternal Victim for the sins of man - not once but a thousand times! The priest speaks and lo! Christ the Eternal and Omnipotent God, bows His head in humble obedience to the priests command."

John,

You seem to hang your hat on v63, but yet have not explain what is your interpretation?

But before you do, pls explain just a few verses.

Vs-52-58 Jesus uses the words eat my flesh and drink my blood, even said " It is true food and drink"

They ask " this is hard who can understand? " v60

Q: What was hard to understand?

v63 Jesus says " The flesh counts for nothing"

Q, whose flesh is Jesus speaking of?

Jesus goes on and says " The words I have spoken to you are Spirit and they are life"

Q: What words are Spirit and Life?

We will stand before GOD. Not our Pastor or Priest.
Only Jesus Christ can stand with us. ---Samuelbb7 on 6/19/16

Strange that the Jew people didn't follow your idea of how being God's people operates.
Nor the Church set up by Jesus.

God set Moses has head of His people. He spoke to Moses alone. He didn't say "Tell the people to come up this mountain to listen to Me."

Be careful. You sound like Aaron and Miriam:
Numbers 12:2 They complained, "Is it through Moses alone that the Lord speaks? Does he not speak through us also?

You know what happened next.

God ALWAYS speaks through a group. Now that group is the Church.
---Nicole_Lacey on 6/19/16


john9346, I do NOT know who Fr. George Grube is.

Here is what the wiki that is Orthodox says:

The Church teaches that the sacrifice is not a mere figure or symbol but a true sacrifice. It is not the bread that is sacrificed, but the very Body of Christ. And, the Lamb of God was sacrificed only once, for all time. The sacrifice at the Eucharist consists, not in the real and bloody immolation of the Lamb, but in the transformation of the bread into the sacrificed Lamb.
All the events of Christ's sacrifice, the Incarnation, the Last Supper, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection, and the Ascension are not repeated in the Eucharist, but they are made present.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 6/20/16


Cluny. You are partially correct. If a person joins a church that lays out it's doctrines. Then it would be the understanding of the community.

Brendan:

You said:

"He also said, "This is my Body" and "This is my Blood," which many Protestants have a hard time understanding,"

Sir, it is understanding Jesus's Words, in vs 63.

You must allow the Lord Jesus to define what he means.

Remember, to believe and assert a meaning of real flesh and blood to eat is to teach, "Cannibalism." which is a Direct Result in "Scripture." of "Divine Judgment."

I don't think you understand Cluny.

Sola means Only.

So, Jerry you are saying 'ONLY MY interpretation of Scripture'

As Martin Luther did. His only interpretation of Scripture meant 7 books of the OT had to go.

In Luther' only interpretation of the Scriptures did not Include those 7 books.
Even through traditions from the Fathers of the Church Since the Bible was compiled BELIEVED THOSE 7 BOOKS BELONGED IN THE OT.: That's were their interpretation of a completed 73 book Bible.

So, Which "sola my interpretation of scriptura." are you following? Luther's or the Fathers of the Church?

John 9346 said, "Everyone please note, the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross stated the words in Jn 19:30, "tetelestai." meaning "It is finished."

John, forgive me for being picky. Have I ever, in the entire time I have posted, used the name of your church without using capital letters? Please use the same courtesy toward Roman Catholics.

**// Sola scriptura does not always result in truth.//

So you don't really believe in sola scriptura. What you REALLY believe in is "sola rightly dividing"--by YOU!

And that's what the Orthodox Church does--rightly divides the word of truth.

Jerry--this is my point. Those who say "sola scriptura" actually mean "sola my interpretation of scriptura."

That's what tradition means: you don't have to reinvent the wheel. Others have hashed through the same issues centuries before you or I thought about them.

---michael_e on 6/17/16


cluny: "Sola scriptura does not always result in truth."

I disagree. It is the individual's interpretation that is in error - not the Bible. Thus, false opinions of men give rise to false doctrines and erroneous traditions. These traditions when held up to the scrutiny of God's Word are sometimes found to be in error, and to depart from these errors occasionally results in new denominations.

Isa 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Joh 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.


---Jerry6593 on 6/18/16


Sola scriptura does not always result in truth.

One camp of Protestants will baptize infants, claiming Sola scriptura.

Another camp will reject it, claiming Sola scriptura.

They cannot both be right.

I can give other examples, but you get the idea.

So the issue is not really Sola Scriptura, but how the individual interprets it, despite the Bible actually saying that Scripture is NOT of private interpretation.

Cluny and Nicole,

When the Lord Jesus Christ in Jn19:30 uttered the words, "tetelestai." it meant his "Sacrifice." was indeed able to make us right before God which means our justification including our purification.

No where in Scripture is it ever taught that we must go to a neutral place between heaven and hell to work towards purity.

"For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit."

The Lord Jesus Christ died "Once." not 2, 3, 4, but "Once."
---john9346 on 6/16/16


One of the differences between Roman Catholics and Protestants. Is the doctrine of sola Sciptura. This doctrine is the Teaching that the final arbiter of all true doctrine is Scripture. That nothing which contradicts scripture is to be taught by the church.

The RCC and the Orthodox are opposed to this.

Other religions have different scriptures.

The Jesus of the RCC didn't fully atone for sins on the cross so he will send you to purgatory. He is also real bread and wine to eat and drink.(eastern orthodox)

The Jesus of the LDS is the brother of Satan who atoned for sins in the Garden of Gethsemane and not the cross.

The Jesus of the JW's is Michael the archangel.

The Jesus of christian science never died on the cross nor rose from the dead.

The Jesus of oneness pentecostals is not eternal, but was only a plan before being born.

The Jesus of Islam never died on the cross, someone else did.

Samuel BB7 said, "Protestants, Catholics, and Orthodox are all branches of Christians. All are supposed to be Christians.

A Christian will be know for following Jesus."


Thank you, Samuel!

Rob,

If you have a look at the blog titled, "Orthodox Hell Bound Priest.", I provided a contrast between Christianity and Eastern Orthodox on the Major differences that are, "Essential."

Note, I provide documentation from Eastern Orthodox Respected Source/authorities that you can check for further study.



Hope this help,


John

Well I am late. But the question is majorly flawed.

Protestants, Catholics, and Orthodox are all branches of Christians. All are supposed to be Christians.

A Christian will be know for following Jesus.

John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you,
Matthew 22:36-40 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? (Please read it)

Christian liturgical vesture, especially of the Pre-reformation churches, is derived from what everyone wore in the first few centuries--especially after the ladies of the Altar and Sacristy guild got ahold of it.

But books have been written on this subject, so it can't be treated in just 125 words on these blogs.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Trav ranted, "...
You claim the papa/pope is apostolic peter but, Christ wouldn't recognize Peter as his flowing golden robes, septre and Babylonian hat/mitre, pedophile-mobile etc, etc."


Christ would recognize the chair of Peter, complete with flowing robes. As a matter of fact, the various "robes" that you talk about are a lot closer to what Jesus wore than almost any Evangelical preacher today.

As far as pedophilia, did you know that there are more Protestant and Evangelical ministers that are abusing children than the whole of the Catholic Church?

Rob: There's a HELLUVA lot of differences between the various world religions, schisms & true Christianity. The Bible says, "Broad is the way leading to destruction..." (Matt. 7:13). God's "straight & narrow way" (Matt. 7:14) doesn't appeal to the [broad]wayward folks who don't pay attention to & obey the True & Living God of the Bible.

Satan's agenda is, & has always been, to divide & conquer. That's the most effective war strategy ever devised. Historically, it has worked all the way back to Adam & Eve & yet works very well across a broad spectrum of things in our daily lives. Yet, God's word says we're to "seek first His kingdom & His righteousness...".

Let's be real, Steven. That is just another blast from the bigoted anti-Catholic community that hates the Church because it is the epitome of Christianity

Scripture shows that rcc is false.
You claim the papa/pope is apostolic peter but, Christ wouldn't recognize Peter as his flowing golden robes, septre and Babylonian hat/mitre, pedophile-mobile etc, etc.
Catholic tradition, calls the pope Holy Father.
The term "Holy Father" is found one time in scripture. When Jesus prayed before going to the garden of Gethsemane. He referred to God the Father as Holy Father. It is blasphemy to call a man by God's name.
Joh_17:11 .

StevenG falsely remarked, "The catholic church is worth more than 17 trillion dollars."

How did you arrive at that figure? Did you find a web site that asserted that? Did you find some list, somewhere, of all of the Church properties and their total worth so that you could spend four years in front of a calculator to get that answer?

Let's be real, Steven. That is just another blast from the bigoted anti-Catholic community that hates the Church because it is the epitome of Christianity

True Cluny. We can cover some of the big differences.

Ruben gave one. The RCC is the only to claim that the Pope is the Vicar of Christ a singular claim to Peter as the first Pope.

While the RCC and the Orthodox are similar in a number of ways that is one of the differences that divide them.

Protestants which is the part of the list I fall in. Were those who protested the state of the RCC in Europe.

We choose to argue for Sola Scriptura as one of the reasons we split off from them.

Neither the Orthodox or RCC agree with Sola Scriptura.

Other Religions would be because they reject Jesus as the son of GOD.

We Protestants have fractured into the most diverse groups of the list.

Satan has had over two thousand years to infiltrate and divide christiandom up into more than 60,000 different denominations each having their own rituals, traditions, ways of living and interpretations of the bible.

Even the word "church" has lost its meaning. Today it means a building or a denomination just by the way it's used (I didn't see you in church today"). Some would say, "I am a catholic," "I am a baptist," "I am a Mormon," "I am a lutheran,". Is Christ divided?

Denominational churches own worldly assets and use 83% of their income to maintain these assets. The catholic church is worth more than 17 trillion dollars.

Christians need to get back to basics.

"What are the differences between Christians, Protestants, Catholics, Orthodox, and other religions?"
If you are referring to non christian religions, the difference is obvious, they fail to acknowledge the salvation of the Father, found only in the Lord Jesus, The Christ.
---josef on 6/5/16


The big differences is that Orthodox, Protestants and other religions believe Christ did not call Peter the Rock where he will built his Church and Peter and only Peter was given the keys.:)

" You are Simon son of John, you will be call Cephas." (Jhn 1:42

And I tell you, you are Cephas and on this Cephas I will built my Church." (MT 16 : 16-19) That will get it started!

"He who listen to you listen to me " (LK 10:17)

Are you listening to Jesus?

Not those groups I just call out..
