Rome And Churches Of The East

Why is it that ancient churches of the East that had NOTHING to do with Rome or the popes, not only worshiped on Sunday, but had episcopal polity (bishops, presbyters, and deacons), and the sacraments?

Cluny:

Me: ISN'T valid until the Pope states it is valid.==

You: This is not true from the Orthodox viewpoint.//

Please CITE a Council you believe a Pope didn't make it valid by his approval.

Just because you or any other Orthodox doesn't want to acknowledge the Pope doesn't remove his authority.

---Nicole_Lacey on 1/25/19


Why wasting so much time and words in a religion that clearly is under judgment before THE LORD from the very beginning and instead to study, discern and share GOD'S WORD in order for those who are under spiritual blindness may see and repent from their spiritual adultery before THE LORD? - what's THE LORD admonishing us in Ezequiel 8:17,18 - HIS fury against those in the ancient times (and now for HIS WORD never will pass away) that were committing the same abominations of idolatry that is here in this world and that bring destruction and judgment!
---Melody on 1/25/19


Nicole_Lacey:

The term "Roman Catholic" is not "derogatory" if the Church ITSELF uses it. I previously showed where an archbishop/saint used it, and a Pope quoted it without negative comment.

I grew up in a Catholic church, and our priest and everyone else in the church said Roman Catholic among ourselves.

If one black person asked me to stop calling them black, I would, but that doesn't mean I could never call any OTHER black person black. You don't want to be called RC, so fine, I don't call *YOU* RC, but your outrage doesn't forbid me from using that term for the church ITSELF, as it has ITSELF used that term.
---StrongAxe on 1/25/19


cluny: "The RCC saying so doesn't make it so, jerry."

Neither does YOUR saying it isn't so disprove it.

"Can YOU explain this, jerry?"

Sure, sun worship is quite old, even sunrise services.

Eze 8:16 And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD'S house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east, and they WORSHIPPED THE SUN toward the east.

Now will you answer my question, cluny?

Again Jerry, you are suggesting that the Apostles was keeping the 'Breaking of the Bread' on Saturdays.

The Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church (because they were part of the CC for one Thousand years) FOLLOW the Apostles in changing the Sabbath to Sundays.

Just because you reject Acts 20:7 as proof doesn't mean the Fathers of the Church agrees with you.

All of them living within a century of Jesus' Death understood the New Sabbath as the 8th day is to be celebrated on our time line of Sundays.

Jerry, Cluny is an Orthodox because he converted (I believe he said so in the past) into the Orthodox Church.

Can you read and count at the same time, jerry?

1. Sunday worship.
2. Episcopal polity.
3. Sacraments.

Those are ALL features of the pre-reformation churches, including those that had nothing to do with the popes.

Contrary to what the SDA claims, the pagans did NOT have a weekly day of worship.

That is the same mistake made by the book you had me read. HISTORY OF THE SABBATH.

Now, will you read the article by Ralph Woodrow, or do you already have your mind made up despite the facts?

---Cluny on 1/20/19


Cluny the council of Laodicea did declare that those who went on keeping Sabbath were to be punished.

The Pope and the Eastern churches worked together for awhile till the Roman Pope decided to steal power.

What matters is that the Bible in the Ten Commandment say to keep the Seventh day Sabbath. Also that no where does the Bible say to not keep the Sabbath nor does it say to meet on the first day of the week.

The Pope for centuries lied and said he did it. But it was just another lie.

Jerry: his CUSTOM was, he went into the synagogue on the SABBATH day, and stood up for to read.//

A side note, but it was very interesting to me:

In Matthew Gospel, he always identify Jesus entering the synagogues as 'their' not including Him even though Jesus is Jewish.

Ex: Matthew 9:35

As for Paul and Acts, going to Church on the Sabbath didn't even enter the rules for Jews entering the Church.

Acts 15:19-20 It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God. Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood.

Interesting point, Cluny.... Lets say I got lost on a deserted island.. It's very possible that I would lose sense of time, including the day of the week (I see this all the time with hospitalized patients).

It contains services for every day of the year.

So I guess we're keeping Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, AND Saturday.

Glory to Jesus Chrrist!

Jerry: At least the Catholics are honest enough to admit they they changed it on their own authority.//

you keep saying that without finishing our beliefs.

She holds the Sabbath on Sundays from the Authority given to Her by Her Bridegroom Jesus Christ.

Even if you don't believe it you could at least say: They admit they changed the Sabbath day because of the belief Jesus gave them the authority to do so.

Why else would we do so?

Cluny: I don't know why you guys keep Sunday. Care to explain?

What I mean about "keep Sabbath holy" is exactly this:

Exo 20:8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Why do you refuse to address the core issue that Jesus and the Apostles kept the seventh-day Sabbath (not Sunday) and alleged Orthodox do not. This fact belies the very meaning of the word "orthodox". At least the Catholics are honest enough to admit they they changed it on their own authority. What is YOUR excuse?

People keep telling us that God told us to keep the Sabbath from the beginning.

Is that so? God only told Adam to guard and work the garden.

In fact I don't think He even told him to rest every 7th day.

I might be wrong and haven't taken the time to read Genesis again.
'
It takes centuries until Moses comes along before God mentions the Sabbath according to the Bible.

I am NOT saying the Sabbath ISN'T important.

Sabbath Commandment is listed 3rd which means it is the 3rd most important commandment to God.

Can anyone find a verse where God instructs anyone not to work on the Sabbath?

NurseRobert: I give citations, not vague historical statements want other to just BELIEVE me.

//how do you explain the three Popes in 1378-1417. Each claimed to be Pope, each had their own following. Each excommunicated the others.. Was that just a "spat"?//

That is ridiculous.

Abraham Lincoln was our President. But there was another man ALSO claiming he was president at the same time. Jefferson Davis

He ALSO had a following. Those men STARTED a war killing more Americans in our history.

Was that a spat?

When children cite all the Presidents back to Washington do they claim BOTH Davis and Lincoln were the 16th Presidents?

No! Lincoln was the 16th President for the South as the North!

Samuel, what do you mean by "keep the Sabbath" in this context? Please elaborate.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

//Sorry for NOT taking your opinion as FACT.//

But you expect us to take your opinion as fact?

//You CAN'T have a Schism UNLESS you were ONE CHURCH!
Only the CC can name every Pope back to Peter.//

Then how do you explain the three Popes in 1378-1417. Each claimed to be Pope, each had their own following. Each excommunicated the others.. Was that just a "spat"?

Samuel: Nicole Monk Brendon told the truth. The Popes starting taking powers and authority that was not theirs.//

Jesus can give His Authority to ANYONE He wishes. He doesn't need anyone's approval. Matt 28:18

//They lied and are still lying about many things.//

Sorry for NOT taking your opinion as FACT.

Since you are NOT an historian could you at least CITE an Historian concerning Pope's lying and Pope Francis lying today?

//Look up the Great Schism of 1054.//

THANK YOU!

You CAN'T have a Schism UNLESS you were ONE CHURCH!

Which I been saying all this time.

Only the CC can name every Pope back to Peter.

The Orthodox Churches has to blend in the Popes from the CC.

Nicole Monk Brendon told the truth. The Popes starting taking powers and authority that was not theirs. They lied and are still lying about many things.

Look up the Great Schism of 1054. Look in an Encyclopedia as well as the Vatican spin.

Cluny and Monk, if you were a Christian you were Catholic.

It was named Catholic because it means universal.

TODAY people who are NOT Christian think the Catholic Church is the Leader of ALL CHRISTIANS in the world.

They DON'T know about Protestants, Orthodox or Mormons.

You say Christian they think Catholic. You say Catholic they think Christian.
INTERCHANGEABLE WORDS.

Which was TRUE until 1054!

Cluny: Neither the Assyrian, Persian, or Indian churches were ever under the Popes,//

That's news to them?

The Pope just canonized many of them and they were at the Vatican

Google the CC in Iran (Persians). You can't speak about them AFTER 1054. I am speaking about the unity BEFORE 1054.

Why giving honor here in this Christian site - to those who defiantly have trampled upon THE LORD HOLINESS AND HIS WORD - from the past and into the present with their corrupted and false/idolatrous/heretic doctrines and even persecuted true Christians throughout times? . . . listen what THE LORD says (not a wicked deceitful religious man) . . . if you remain defending such wickedness - you have decided into becoming lost and reprobate by your own will!

"For behold the day cometh that shall burn as an oven, and all the proud (yes, those of whom some here constantly exalting them because of their own spiritual blindness themselves) yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble, saith THE LORD". Malachi 4:1

There were churches in Africa who kept Sabbath as well as Ireland.

Nicole, your assumption has a fatal error: The only church that was UNDER Rome was the church of Rome itself. No other bishop even pretended to acknowledge a Roman SUPER-authority until at least 312 A.D.

\\That's because the ancient Churches in the East were UNDER the Catholic Churches and HER Popes.\\

Neither the Assyrian, Persian, or Indian churches were ever under the Popes, or even had anything to do with them, Nicole.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

That's because the ancient Churches in the East were UNDER the Catholic Churches and HER Popes.

Orthodox Churches wasn't separate and on their own until 1054
