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!!!

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.

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 .

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!

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.

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.


Where I Was Saved
  
Melody said, " you cannot prove your offensive words against my writings - for everything that I have shared here are Biblical inspired - and your own antagonist problem you are putting them on others that share GOD'S WORD."

Melody, Jesus told us to love one another. Love is never condemnation. Rather, Love is...(1Cor 13)

There is nothing in there that tells you to condemn or judge. If you continue, God will heap on you the condemnations that you spew out of your mouth.

Just a loving warning.


Jesus Attend Your Church
  
StevenG said, "ALL worldly denominational "churches" are non-profit of which the orthodox "church" is a "church," a religion. Even the santanic "church" is a non-profit organization."

Okay, Steven, let's put things in some order. There are a great many "churches" that have 501c3 status, which is a federal TAX status, and it has nothing to do with how close (or far away from) TRUE Christianity.

Most Pre-Reformation churches are set up as a corporation sole, with all of the tax status resting in the bishop of the diocese.


Western Eastern Religions
  
Kathr4453 said, " Cluny, I have "respectively" misspelled words that you both carry on about as if the world would come to an end. You've been asked by several to stop, and you don't, showing one of two things....arrogance, or you both have a learning disability or mental disorder...neurosis ...whatever."

And yet you and others on these blogs have repeatedly been told of our "Eastern" beliefs, and yet you and others choose to lump us into the Roman Catholic Church. Neither of us are Roman Catholic. I am MELKITE Catholic, and Cluny is ORTHODOX. When you and others learn that, then I, at least, shall not bother anyone about spelling.


Church To Be Restored
  
John 9346 said, "Well first as a monk how unbecoming of you... would have expected better over a typo on a word... guest your not human???"

I am human, with all the foibles that continue in humans. But, I comment upon it because this is not the first time you have spelled the word "Eucharist" in the same manner. So it's not a typo, it's deliberate.

"You cant debate what you believe about Mary because you cant none of you can thats why you want to change the topic."

Not so! But I cannot have a conversation where between you and me, with comments limited to 125 words. If you can get the Moderator to cancel the limitations on word count and comment, then I will write to you about it.


How To Love
  
StevenG said, "As a small group, people are accountable to one another. People grow and mature in Christ a whole lot better than going to a denominational "church" service once a week. We are not to be only hearers of the word."

But your "small group" is not connected to any other small, medium, or large scale congregation, or you would be able to claim 501c3 status.


He Takes Away Sin
  
Melody said, "Enough of your insults and for you to twist my sayings and use that to constantly harassed me with your words - the proof is in the writing and you over and over show 'your religious spirit' against THE TRUTH! May THE LORD that is THE ONE that hears and judges the words that come from our hearts show you where you are and if not - it's your own decision and your loss!"

Melody, the Lord rebuke thee! (Jude 9--KJV)


Where I Was Saved
  
Knowing the DATE is inconsequential. What does that matter? What you have done since then is a lot more important.

If it is ABSOLUTELY necessary, God will provide.
