Bound By Ten Commandments
  
\\"But in vain, they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." Matt 15.
---barb on 4/28/17\\

One of these traditions of men is that references to The Law in the NT mean only the Decalougue.

\\I notice that not a single response addresses the blog question, but rather most continue to espouse the same lawless drivel. What are you afraid of?\\

You're one to talk and complain, Jerry.

You didn't answer MY question.

\\\\!. How did God lead you?
2. What did you study?\\\\

The two are combined.

I began studyiing organ in college as my keyboard. Reading about organ led to reading about hymnody, which led to reading about worship, which led to reading about Church history.

I became convinced that Baptists--and Protestants, for that matter--were not the Church as described in the Bible.

Bound By Ten Commandments
  
\\Jerry6593 states, "The 10C Law defines sin (1 John 3:4)." \\

That means that simple fornication is NOT sin, because it's not mentioned in the Decalogue.

I also noticed you did NOT answer my query about why you posted the same thing twice.

Your turn now.

Answer your own questions, michael e, then I'll answer yours.

Fair enough?

Bound By Ten Commandments
  
You asked this same basic question a few weeks ago on 25 March with the thread title TEN COMMANDMENTS HISTORICAL

\\Most Christian denominations have historically held the Ten Commandments as being binding on Christians. Many Christians today do not agree. Why? What changed?//

Why do you keep on asking it, Jerry? Do you simply not like the answers you get?

Christ is risen!


Why Did You Become A Christian
  
To whom it may concern: I did not start this thread. Apparently michael e did, though I may be mistaken.

Moderators, please take note and remove this.

]]1. who enticed you into orthodoxy religion, God or man.
2. How was introduced to you?
---michael_e on 4/23/17]]

My answer to michael e did NOT get posted on this thread. Instead, spurioius thread started under my name got started.

I will make yet another attempt to answer michael es questions again:

1. It was God who led me to Christ's Holy Orthodox Church.
2. My own study, ,guided by the Holy Spirit Himself, led me to this conclusion.

You may not like my answer, but there it is.

Christ is risen!


Do Ghosts Exist
  
What translation of the Bible are you using, Nicole? The NAB?

KJV and most other translations use "spirit" and not "ghost."

This is one of my complaints about the NAB: it tries too hard to be different.

\\ The advantage of the boC today is believing the Bible, rightly divided.\\

You've not answered my two questions yet, michael e. I will repeat them:

1. Who does the "right dividing"?

2. Which recension of the KJV do you base your faith in God upon?

Or do you simply not think about things you don't think about?

Could these questions scare you?

Why Easter And Christmas
  
john, this is a 6th century Nestorian theologian I quoted. What he said is basically the Definition of Chalcedon.

It's the same one who compared patriarchs to popes.

\\It is not degrees and lifetimes of seeking that is required to discover
spiritual truth, it is faith in God and his word rightly divided.\\

And just who does the rightly-dividing, michael e. You?

Why Easter And Christmas
  
One is Christ the Son of God,
Worshiped by all in two natures,
In His Godhead begotten of the Father,
Without beginning before all time,
In His humanity born of Mary,
In the fullness of time, in a body united,
Neither His Godhead is of the nature of the mother,
Nor His humanity of the nature of the Father,
The natures are preserved in their Qnumas*,
In one person of one Sonship.
And as the Godhead is three substances in one nature,
Likewise the Sonship of the Son is in two natures, one person.
So the Holy Church has taught.

\\There is a good reason that I believe my King James Bible. My faith in God depends upon it. (Roma 10:17)\\

What did the Church ever do before 1611, when the KJV was finally published?

And upon which recension of the KJV does your faith in God rest?

Glory to Jesus Christ!


Why Easter And Christmas
  
\\Cluny,

Sir, why would you be quoting "A Nestorian theologian." which is a "Heretic."????\\

You've asked a good question.

The person who wrote this flourished in the 6th century. I could tell you where to find it on line, but I think it's against the ruled.

NOBODY today is a Nestorian as condemned by the Ecumenical Council (except some fringe Protestants). In fact, a few years ago the Nestorian Patriarch Mar Dinkha and Pope John Paul II signed a statement of common Christology, to which the Nestorian Synod agreed.

Christ is risen!


Why Easter And Christmas
  
Not quite, Samuelbb. but close.

Orthodxy has alsways believed that the Pope was the head, but we disagreed with Roman Catholics about what this headship means.

We see it as a primacy of honor, as first among equals. As a Nestorian theologian put it, As the Patriarch is among the bishops, so is the Pope among patriarchs.

Pastor Aeternus, however, defined this headship as a "primacy of ordinary jurisdiction over all the faithful," which we reject.

Christ is risen!


Why Easter And Christmas
  
\\I don't know if Easter and Christmas wash invented by the Pope but I now know they are pagan.

Yes, I'm very guilty of celebrating them in the past before I learned the truth.
---Rob on 4/16/17\\

As a matter of fact, Rob, they are not.

The supposed pagan origin of these Christian observances is backwards. It was Emperor Julian the Apostate who paganized these Christian feasts.

I suggest you read THE APOStASY THAT WASN'T.

\\If you want a Bible still published that does not change\\

Well, if you do, you won't find it in the KJV, michaele. Note that in m y original post, it's had several revisions, the lastest being in 1904.

Ten Commandments Historical
  
\\(Steveng: How is fornication "unnatural"? Since animals don't marry, 99.9999% species on the planet reproduce only that way)\\

There are some species that mate for life, mostly among birds. Frequently these will form same-sex pairs, such as mynahs. I'm inclined to think of this as a survival strategy more than what we understand the same behavior among human beings.

Some primates indulge in same gender intimate behavior, but I will say no more. Look it up for yourself if you like.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
