I would like to add:
Pretending to speak in tongues and brain washing children to think their speaking in tongues is a tragedy. As well as mocking the Blessed Mother and Eucharist.
__________
Clay...there is only one sin that cannot be forgiven...that of blaspheming the Holy Ghost. Jesus said so. You worship your view of a Blessed Mother and a Eucharist...but you mock at those who are filled with the Holy Ghost.
Do you think that Peter and Paul and other Apostles were pretending to speak in tongues?
I've had a language roll from my mouth for several minutes that I had nothing to do with. The Holy Spirit did the speaking.
I did not blaspheme the Holy Spirit. I would never doubt the possibility of people speaking in tongues.
However, you just accused me of worshiping the Blessed Mother. So obviously I know you're not guided by the Holy Spirit. Because that is a lie. The Holy Spirit does not lie.
Whatever 'spirit' told you to say that....is not Holy. Period.
Furthermore, its never been proven anyone from the Pentecostal movement is speaking a language.

Languages should have characters that identifies it as an actual language. What you guys do is self indulged hypnosis.

Most Orthodox split at the time of Constantine who founded Constantinople. Other Coptics claim to be from the the apostles. They may have started that way but were later taken over by Rome. The Nazarenes were the first Christians, remaining free from Rome all the way until joining the Reformation.

The Blessed Mother 'virgin mary' is a demon, not the mother of Jesus.

Mother child worship predates the Roman cult

The real Christian Biblical trinity does not include Mary, the pope or the Church.

The virgin Mary was not holy.. Lies from satan
As for people claiming the gift of speaking in tongues is made up more lies from satan.. There is no this way or that way there is one way.

The undiluted word of the GOSPEL...JESUS IS THE TRUTH THE LIGHT AND THE WAY.. HE IS THE ONLY WAY.. It doesn't say in the scripture the catholic or prodestant way is the way..
ONE WAY ONLY AND IT'S CLEARLY PRINTED IN THE HOLY BOOK..Satan is trying to dilute, change and every other way he can.. BUT BEWARE ITS CLEARLY STATED I AM THE LIGHT.. So stop talking nonsense about priests..

WE DO NOT LIVE UNDER THE LAW OF MOSES ANY MORE...WE LIVE UNDER GRACE...
THE NEW TESTAMENT (COVENANT UNDER GRACE.) SAYS.
Rom 14:13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.
Rom 14:14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself:
NOTE
but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
Rom 14:15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.
Rom 14:16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of:
Rom 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Rom 14:18 For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.
Rom 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
NOTE
Rom 14:20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.
Rom 14:21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.
Rom 14:22 Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God.
Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.
NOTE
Rom 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith:
for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

The passage actually has to do with early Christianity and judging others for eating sacrifices some considered wrong.
As for the law of Moses, we are told what was nailed to the cross in Col 2:14-17 - the sacrificial system and temple as Jesus is now the High Priest (Heb 4:14)

Maybe you have looked at this before and decided it was alright? We are alright to get tattoos? Where does it end? Going by the Bible this law was never nailed to the cross. The only thing that changed for God's people was grace & faith in Jesus. The sacrificial system is no more; all the laws remain.

This is why we are told thse eating the swine and unclean are lost in the end, because they are not following God's word..

Is 66:17 "They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, says the LORD. "

This is a study on the unclean food laws
http://abc.eznettools.net/mobxpozd/BkHOH.html

There's an agenda to get Christians to believe grace means no more law. The reason for this is mostly to do with His Sabbath. When God's people worship on another day they join Rome.

Sabbath blessings!

<quoted text>What I also love about the Orthodox Church is that it has not changed, it is the same as it was when it was founded. Where as the Roman Catholic Church has changed to fit with the times. Who knows what the Roman Catholic Church will look like in years to come.....the Orthodox will still be the same.
with all do Respect. The Orthodox broke from the Catholic Church. Some Orthodox Churches have all but disappeared. There is no unified authority..you guys are dictated by whichever country you reside in. Some Churches - like the Russian Orthodox were pawns of their countries they lived in.. completely infiltrated and controlled by the state!

YOU CERTIFY WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE ON THIS FORUM...
THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS THE FIRST PROTESTANTS THAT PROTESTED THE ORTHODOX CHURCH..
THE ORTHODOX CHURCH..CANONIZED THE BIBLE AND THE ROMAN CATHOLIC HAVE STOLEN THE GLORY OF IT AND CLAIMED THEY WROTE IT...
Could you cite a source other than you demented personal take on Christianity? You're an ignorant bigot.
BUT, if you want to be received into the Orthodox Church, then you have my back. The Orthodox are mirror images of use Catholic Church. So at least, you'll be THAT much further away from the cult you now head.

History shows us that the Orthodox Church with its Patriarchs,Bishops,Priests,eve ry single church is the entire church system has been the most successful in keeping the Doctrines, Dogma,and Liturgy virtually unchanged for two thousand years.Although Orthodox Churches in differant countries adopt the name of their country such as Greek Orthodox,Ukranian Orthodox, the liturgy and Dogma, with minor changes in local customs (typica),are the same.

Sice you disrespected my church I feel free to say this.The Orthodox Church mirrors the first church,not catholicism.Perhaps you should hold your own church up for reflection.

WHAT SEPARATES ME MOSTLY FROM THE ORTHODOX CHURCH IS THEIR ACCEPTANCE OF THE FABLES CONCERNING THE MOTHER OF JESUS...
They teach the immaculate conception and holy assumption, which the Bible does not reference
WHILE there a other things that I could question, the above teachings are the most crucial to my belief.
Greetings Confrinting...one correction if I may. The Orthodox Church does not believe in the imaculate conception.However we do venerate Mary.Also we do not believe in the assumption of Mary.We believe in the Dormition of Mary.

Many of you bible only Protestants have "joined forces" with the abortionists,and the homosexual(gay marriage) community, in order to promote your "secular humanism" and "political correct" agenda that has "polluted many of the Protestant Churches and the faith of many (good intention) "fallen away" Christians..... However----false teachers, heretics and those who "hate" Jesus Christ and His One True Catholic Church----have "come and gone" for over 2000 years and will CONTINUE to come and go------YET-----THE CHURCH "CONTINUES" TO LIVE ON-----Just like Jesus said it would!!!

You and your other "bible only" 42,000 editorialists "can do what you want" ----You are just "spinning your Protestant wheels" around and around "in circles" and we "couldn't care less"---except to pray for your misguided, and mis-directed hearts minds and souls.

Indeed!!! At least they used honest prostitutes!!!!
History
The banquet was given in Cesare's apartments in the Palazzo Apostolico. Fifty prostitutes or courtesans were in attendance for the entertainment of the banquet guests. Burchard describes the scene in his Diary:
On the evening of the last day of October, 1501, Cesare Borgia arranged a banquet in his chambers in the Vatican with "fifty honest prostitutes", called courtesans, who danced after dinner with the attendants and others who were present, at first in their garments, then naked. After dinner the candelabra with the burning candles were taken from the tables and placed on the floor, and chestnuts were strewn around, which the naked courtesans picked up, creeping on hands and knees between the chandeliers, while the Pope, Cesare, and his sister Lucretia looked on. Finally, prizes were announced for those who could perform the act most often with the courtesans, such as tunics of silk, shoes, barrets, and other things.
nooooo say it isnt so! This cant be the True Church? LOL
