Explain Matthew 6:1-2
Kathr4453 said, \\Cluny, Gnosticism is not having knowledge of God. \\

Wrong again, kathr.

Gnosticism is believing that "divine" knowledge is given to each one of us, individually. There is always a "special" knowledge that you have to receive from an initiate.

The more that you dig, the more questions you have, while you lose all sense of God's grace.

Agnosticism is not caring whether God exists or not.

How To Protect Family
Nicole Lacey said, "I will give it to you again.

'EWTN Live - Protestant Theology - Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J. with David Anders - 06-23-2010' "

Right you are that Fr. Mitch said that. But "Roman" was used earlier than the 1400's.

The Arabs had been using "Rum" (pronounced rhoom) for 500 years before, to distinguish from the "Lateen" which come from the Western Catholic Church.

But if YOU, PERSONALLY don't wish to be called "Roman Catholic," then I will cease, and just address you as Catholic.

How To Protect Family
Nicole said, "StrongAxe, you never went to an American public school. Comparative Religion isn't offered in public schools K-12."


While it is true that Comparative Religion is not taught as a requirement in High School, it was taught in the Roman Catholic high school where I went. But it was comparative, not indoctrination.

In junior high I did go to a public school, and there I was taught about Islam. But even there it was listening to one man tell HIS experience, and NOT indoctrination. I know the difference. I was taught by the ROMAN Catholic nuns, and they indoctrinated me, I know.

Trump Protect Religious Freedom
mike said, "Trump said that he will give churches their voices back & signs executive order protecting religious freedom. Isnt that union of church & state which is unconstitutional? Is it a start of a revival?"

No, Mike. Freedom of religion means that Congress will make no law as to the type of religion that is "acceptable."

In other words, you cannot be discriminated against because you are Evangelical Protestant, or Baptist, or Catholic or Buddhist

Was Hitler Left Or Right
kathr, how dare you say such a hateful thing to Cluny?

OTOH, perhaps you know from personal experience the irritability caused by diaper rash.

And make sure you are taking your own meds.

Be sure to talk to your dr. and pastor about the outbursts of hate you show on these blogs.

Until you apologize to Cluny, I'm going to ignore everything you say.

Christian To Be President
Haz said, "Understanding the Bible, seeing Jesus (the WORD OF GOD) results in Christians doing the will of God (John 6:40)."

And Jesus said, "Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

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."

Why not use more of the same chapter, Haz?

Was Hitler Left Or Right
Jerry 6593 said, "Hitler was decidedly LEFT - as are all SOCIALISTS."

Jerry, not so. The repression is the same, the torturing and murder on a grand scale are the same, but the stated goals are different. Hitler was interested in "Pure German blood."

Marx (et al) was interested in freeing the workers of the world, and all of them joining in the Worker's Paradise. But look at Venezuela, or Ukraine, or Berlin before the wall came down.

IRS Tax Exempt Satanic Temple
Kathr4453 said, "even the Evangelical Right is taken back now by these extreme abortion laws exception to rape, or incest."

I would think that you would be willing to join with the Catholics in defense of LIFE!

God's Grace On Noah
Mike said, "of course that is what you will say. when presented the truth, your tactic is to play ignorant.
the pope is now trying to unite with your orthodox-pope even spoke in congress in 2015...."

Mike, Cluny is ORTHODOX, and not Catholic. While it is my prayer that ALL pre-Reformation churches will come back into Communion with each other, it hasn't happened yet.

Also, there is no Orthodox Pope!

Please list any Pope of any of the Orthodox Churches outside of Patriarchs of Alexandria.

The title pope continues to be used by Alexandrian bishops, both the Coptic Orthodox and Greek Orthodox Patriarchs of Alexandria are known as the "Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria".

IRS Tax Exempt Satanic Temple
The only way that our churches can retain 501(c)3 status is to give every other religious organization--including the Satanic Temple that same status.

The Mueller Report Trump
Oh, the Dems are going to try for impeachment now, and they will continue their cry until 2020, (or 2024 if he wins again)[I hope].

If he loses in 2020, there will be this mad rush to undo everything he has done, impeach the two Supremes that he nominated, and hand the country over to ILLEGAL immigrants

NOTE: I am not against immigration. Far from it! I just ask that they come in legally!!!

Suffer In Hell Forever
Nicole_Lacey said, "Since you all love to use cities to define religions, I suggest Athens for Monk's Melkite Catholic Greek Church for you all to use."

Nicole, our church is rooted in Antioch, where they were first called "Christian."

And there is NO Melkite monastery or parish on Mt. Athos, or in Athens.

And by the way, the term used is Greek (a country, not a city) Catholic, not Catholic Greek.

Fire At The Notre Dame
Steveng said, "What is the root cause of all the problems?"

If you are thinking "MONEY," you are wrong. Scripture has it, For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

So it is not money, but the love of money. Not to condemn, I just wonder if there might be the tiniest bit of PROJECTION in all of this condemning any rich church.

Failed System Of Socialism
Kathr4453 said, " I guess some would say free public education is also socialistic. But it actually began here in 1635 before we became a Nation, in MA by the Puritans and then VA, and so on. The school teachers were paid with TAXES , and one room school houses popped up all over this country."

Kathr, that is NOT a free education. Rather, it was a Puritan education paid for by taxes, as you pointed out. And the "elementary" school was a place for learning LATIN and Greek. Math and science were not considered as necessary as Theology.

Suffer In Hell Forever
Nicole_Lacey said, "So YES He needed a Body to Sacrifice for us."

If God needs anything at all, then He is not God, but rather a creation, and not a Creator.

Suffer In Hell Forever
Nicole_Lacey said, "Now the Catholics states Mary is Co-Redemptrix because the Angel asked sent to her for permission to give Jesus a Body to use to save souls.

No one else was asked. The Angel TOLD not asked."

Nicole, The Bible says that "38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her."

You said, But Jesus needed to get His Body FIRST from Mary

God doesn't NEED anyone or anything. If He had wanted to, He could have raised up a stone, made it into a body, animated it, and called it Jesus. But God didn't do that! HE wanted .

Suffer In Hell Forever
John9346 said, "Now as a monk the standards are high proove this??"

First of all, you misspelled prove, with ONE O. But I will pass that by.

Unless you have read and understood the Catechism 0f the Catholic Church (Not the Baltimore Catechism put out in the American Roman Catholic Churches back in the 40's or whenever.), I will not be able to discuss this with you. Look back in your files, and you will find that I have NEVER said that Mary was co-redemptrix. I have denied this repeatedly!

Suffer In Hell Forever
John9346 said, "Monk Brendan have you recommend to Cluny to stop defending RC Teaching and post the actual things that Eastern Orthodox really Believe???"

John, none of the things that you have posted have a remote resemblance to Catholic Dogma.

A lot of the Pre-Reformation Dogma is exactly the same! What you are quoting is 400+ years of Reformation anti-Catholicism. You would do better to actually read "Catechism of the Catholic Church" BEFORE posting another anti-Catholic screed on this or any other forum.

Suffer In Hell Forever
mike said, " cluny - your favorite verse is what the serpent said in the garden - 'you will not die, you will be like God knowing what is good & evil'. disobedience because you are the one who thinks you are God defining what is good or what is evil'...again 'glory to the pope' not christ cluny...of course your source of information is man the pope & not the bible. that is why you 'glorify the pope not christ & his word or commandment...cluny - that is what the bible says. it's obvious who you really are obeying...for you glory to the pope not the word of God."

Mike, Cluny is NOT CATHOLIC! He doesn't follow the Pope. Read up on Orthodox Christianity before you address him again.
