<quoted text>that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;
“Flesh and blood” refers to the mortal body, so our present bodies in their current condition cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Our present physical organism cannot go to heaven. The idea of “inherit” is to take possession of.
Looks like while you were on your little sabbatical from Topix, you actually learned something.

Good for you!

Keep it up!

Hey Protestants your brother Herme is posting in support of this site as well. Here you are. Clerics and Monks real Orthodox according to Herme. What a Phony. Decree
3. The same things apply to an even greater degree to Protestantism, which as the offspring of Papism
has inherited many heresies, but has also added many more. It has rejected Tradition, accepting only
Holy Scripture (Sola Scriptura), which it misinterprets; it has abolished the Priesthood as a unique
Mystery (Sacrament), as well as the veneration of the Saints and of the holy Icons; it has failed to
honor, or even, in some cases, slighted the person of the Most Holy Theotokos (Mother of God); it has
discarded monasticism; among the Holy Mysteries, it accepts only Baptism and the Divine Eucharist,
which are understood in a way that deviates sharply from the teaching and the practice of the Church;
it teaches such things as absolute predestination (Calvinism) and justification through faith alone.
Furthermore, its more "progressive" sector has introduced Priesthood for women and marriage
between homosexuals - whom they even accept into the ranks of the clergy. But above all, it lacks a
proper ecclesiology, because the Orthodox understanding of the nature of the Church does not exist
among them.16
4. The only way that our communion with heretics can be restored is if they renounce their delusion
(plani) and repent, so that there may be a true union and peace: a union with the Truth, and not with
delusion and heresy. For the incorporation of heretics into the Church, canonical precision (akriveia)
requires that they be accepted through Baptism.17 Their previous “baptism,” performed outside the
Church (without the triple immersion and emersion of the one being baptized in water sanctified by a
particular prayer) is in no way a baptism.18 All attempts at baptism outside the Church lack the Grace
of the Holy Spirit (Who does not remain within schisms and heresies) and as such, we have nothing in
common that unites us, as Basil the Great points out:“those who had apostatized from the Church had
no longer on them the Grace of the Holy Spirit, for it ceased to be imparted when the continuity was
broken…they who were broken off had become laymen, and, because they are no longer able to confer
The voice of Christianity that wants to keep Christianity divided.

Good for you - helping to destroy Christianity - one past at a time.

Thanks!

<quoted text>Preston, I have learned quite well, and have repeatedly pointed out that the word "soul" there, is the word "psyche" in the Gr.
Now, concerning "both of them", their bodies did not enter heaven at the moment of their "physical death", premature death at that, just like in 1 Co 5:5. Now, you can use belittling language to the cock crows, but that won't change the facts that have been presented thus forth. Do you deny "imputed righteousness"? And, if you do, then do you also deny Christ "substitutionary atonement"? He who knew no sin BECAME SIN FOR US. There is a transfer there.
"psyche" = mind

Mind = Spirit

Spirit = Self.

Thanks for the lead-in!

What can you do without the "psyche"?

You need to figure out what it is you believe. You can't trash members in good standing in your church and post declarations of what real Orthodox believe that Protestants are heretics and have no grace, just snipping the part that refers to Catholics as heretics. You cant have it both ways. Its doubletalk. Its hypcorisy and shows the phony you are. Nobody speaks for the Orthodox except you apparently and you can't seem to come to grips with what you believe. Its obvious you are trying to pull out points that punch Catholics alone, but deceptively leave out the statements on the far worse Protestants according to your wonderful sites which blast on Protestants. So your hatred is plainly obvious. No Grace unless triple dipped by a Herme Approved Orthodox. Do you even read the tripe you post? Oh...thats right you only posted the part on Catholics.
You are not being truthful when you say "far worser Protestants".

As you do not know the exact truth we each live.

Shame on you for thinking the HS is exclusive.

Observe how this S.D.A. pastor acknowledges that Jesus in his religion was a Jew raised in Judaism, and yet he believes that Jesus came to earth to save only those of his S.D.A Protestant Christian religion.

JESUS SAID..

Joh_8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Joh_8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

SOME TIME THE TRUTH HURTS...

especially if it hits you right in the face...

THE TRUTH WILL MAKE YOU FREE FROM THE BONDAGE OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC

DOMINATION OF YOUR SOUL IF YOU Will ACCEPT IT...

THEN THE PAIN WILL CEASE..

The pain comes when the light of the gospel hits your eyes..

Ecc_3:16 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.

Mal_4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

When will you comprehend that I believe that Jesus was a mythical character created in imagination by men with pens in hand ... just as were all the other many savior gods and sons of savior gods created by myth-making story-tellers in other religions?

You would believe anything that attached itself to an image of you being holy and saved.

Imagine YOU ... a perfected Protestant slobbering over the image of a Jew.

Funny stuff in deed!

I feel sorry for you...not only for you in your abstract atheism

but in the fact that you are allowing your self to be such an instrument

of blasphemy in the hands of your own worst enemy..

The devil will cuddle you and gratify your ego at the present...

but in the end he will destroy your soul in an eternal destruction..

he is setting you up for the worst fall a person could ever experience..

and you ...poor ignorant soul ...are aiding and abetting you own demise..

It's not my atheism that bothers you. It's that I won't follow you and your Protestant B.S.

Protestantism didn't arise until 16 centuries after the supposed crucifixion of your supposed master. Why was he hiding the truth from Protestants for so many centuries if he thought little old you was "special???"

Religion is BUNK ... and that includes YOUR specialized brand that you put upon your self.
