Yeah. He can't. Then he makes the ridiculous statement that the Early Church is still alive and well in the Eastern Orthodox!
Well, then,... why not the Russian Orthodox, too?
Or how about the Church of the Nazorene?
Or the Coptics or the Syrians?
What about the orthodox Jewish Christians?
And since we are in Communion with many of these, does their acceptance and endorsement of us count as an acknowledgment of our own connection and expression of the Early Church?
Yes. It certainly does.
Christ is both King and Queen of the Hill. Christ is also Lord and Lady of the Valley.

Should reverends be responsible for removing abusive and rude statements from the bible?

Why hasn't the claim that all atheists are fools been removed yet?

Why stand by a book that openly promotes hatred about another people?

How is any of this morally justified, if at all?

.... because, for better or worse, the Roman Rite is more monastic, and stop blaming me for whomever is giving you those negative icons.
LMAO!

Monastic?

You're kidding me again, right?

You think Jesus and the 12 were a bunch of monks?

LMAO!

He spent 40 days in the desert praying, not 40 years. He came back and did his work, not hiding in a cell or cave.

Monastic?

LOL!

Really joline, look a word up before you use it.......

The word atheist was never in the Bible - goyim yes, but atheist is a later add in after the word was invented.

Amen! Agreed! I've always suspected that My LORD was a transvestite! There are some feminist scholars who interpret Jesus' slit on the side as a bleeding vagina.

If you seriously don't think that the celibate Roman priesthood is monastic, then you're the joke.

Adam was walking around the Garden of Eden feeling very lonely, so God asked Adam, "What is wrong with you?"

Adam said, "I don't have anyone to talk to."

God said, "I will give you a companion and it will be a woman." He said, "This person will cook for you and wash your clothes, she will always agree with every decision you make, she will bear your children and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them.

"She will not nag," God continued, "and will always be the first to admit she was wrong. When you've had a disagreement, she will never have a
headache and will freely give you love and passion whenever needed."

Adam asked God, "What will a woman like this cost?"

God said, "An arm and a leg!"

Adam said, "What can I get for just a rib?"

AND THE REST IS HISTORY.

Oh I have no doubt the roman priesthood is based on this, I thought we were discussing SCRIPTURE and interpretation of Scripture.

Jump to the next subject - quick.

Monastic Scripture.
