Baptism Gone Wrong
  
Following the example of the Jewish mikveh, early Christian baptisms were done in the nude.

This is why Deaconesses were chaperones for the baptisms of women.

Ancient illustrations of baptism show the baptizand nude.

In his post-baptismal instructions, St.Cyril of Jerusalem said, "What a wonder! Like Adam and Eve before the fall, you were naked and not ashamed."

Had you or your husband or your son been told beforehand that your son would be baptized in the nude?

Glory to Jesus Christ!


Lost My Husband Of 52 Years
  
I just happened to think: Is there a bereaved support group near you?

The Song of Solomon says, "Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it." This includes a flood of sorrow.

It goes on, "For love is as strong as death." The Resurrection of Christ proves that love is STRONGER than death.

Allow yourself time to mourn. God understands.

Yes, it will be better, but it's different for everybody.

As an Orthodox Christian, we believe that ALL of our relationships reach their ultimate fulfillment in the Kingdom of Heaven.

jerry, I know for a fact that StrongAxe is very strongly pro-life.

But as I do, he believes there more to this than stopping abortion.

Church Leaders Getting Wealth
  
Nobody is getting rich at our church. The priest and his wife live on their pensions from his first carrer and SS.

What you are describing, Samuel, is a degenerate form of the Calvinistic idea that the godly person will proper.

mike, what do your bewildering posts to me have to do with the price of eggs in Afghanistan?

Since I'm Orthodox, and not Roman Catholic, I honestly don't see what you're getting at. We have nothing to do with the Popes.

Can you explain, please?

\\ things related to the flesh will be forever gone, \\

How can this be, since our physical bodies will be raised and glorified, Melody?

And what is an "under" as in your words "pertaining to under"?

Explain Hebrews 10:24-25
  
\\
The words that I shared about 'Love' - were my own and not coming from GOD'S WORD\\

That applies to everything you post here, Melody.

The Eastern Orthodox church teaches that all of our relationships achieve their purest and ideal form in the World to Come.

Explain Hebrews 10:24-25
  
\\instead of providing evidence, you just make more accusations.\\

Because of this, I conclude that Melody is channeling inferior demons (as the monks on Mt. Athos call them).

mike, if you're claiming that the Pope changed Saturday to Sunday, can you tell me which pope did it, when, and how?

And will this explain how ancient Christian churches founded by the Apostles, such as Assyria, India or China, that never had anything to do with the popes have Sunday and not Saturday for their main worship day?

Suffer From Depression
  
mike, CLINICAL depression is caused by a chemical imbalance. There are others recognized in the DSM that I won't go into here.

And no matter how full of hypocrites a church is, there's always room for one more.

Even you, mike.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


How God Saves People
  
\\False the only given this charge was Daniel...

WRONG AGAIN!

St. John in Revelation was told to seal up what the seven thunders uttered.

'GLORY TO THE POPE' cluny

YOU keep the commandments of men than God.\\

1. When are you going to grasp that I am ORTHODOX, not RC, mike?

2. What are you talking about?

If any of you have read the bible and studied it like you claim you do Revelation 22:18-19 isn't the only verse in the bible that warns of adding or taking away from the words of God. Deuteronomy 4:2 says the same thing: \\

If you really believe this, then why do you accept the NT?

Or even Joshua and the OT books written after Deuteronomy?

Look at yourselves. You are pledging allegiance to your worldly denominational "church," its rituals, its man-made traditions, its ways of living and its interpretations of the bible. \\

And you do the same thing that concern the worldly denominational "church" of Steveng.

Melody, that passage in Revelation (which you are misquoting as is your wont, btw) is talking about the Apocalypse itself, not the Bible as a whole.

If it were, we should not have the Gospel of St. John or his letters, as they were written AFTERWARDS.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


How To Speak In Tongues
  
\\ said I don't believe in Sola Scriptura\\

Neither does the Bible, because that's nowhere taught in it.

Don't forget, Original Poster, 1Cor 13 warns that speaking in tongues will do you no good if you don't have love.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

To mention just a couple of things, john:

1. Baptists don't believe baptism has anything to do with salvation. Jesus ordered it, so how is this so?

2. The NT shows model of the church is hierarchical (or episcopal) polity, with bishops, presbyters, and deacons, as well as lesser ministers. But Baptists have congregational polity, despite what the Word of God says.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
