The Orthodox Church does not need the catholic church.The catholic church needs the Orthodox Church.Thats why the catholic church is changing some of their beliefs back to the Orthodox beliefs.ie..Mary may or may not have died before the Assumption,(Orthodox believe she did die)purgatory is not a specific place,(Orthodox does not believe in purgatory)etc.
FAIL! Geez, don't they teach you guys how to do proper research in school anymore? You should learn to control your temper while you're still young. Hissy fits are unattractive and unhealthy.

"You're sending her on a snipe hunt."
- no I am not - I am only suggesting to the poster to research that which the poster "thinks" is true and what is not.

If the poster had any common sense, and had done prior research, they would have discovered that the "soul" has never been proven to exist.

This is when bias begins.

One must remove themselves from the bias in order to get the correct answers.

In other words, and through honesty, one should state that they won't know what happens to their "soul" until they die.

Anyone who says otherwise is not only arrogant, but ingnorant.

Thanks for responding.

Well thank you Sera! You have a nice day too!
U are sounding more and more Protestant every time you log on. Perhaps you'd like to debate with your new friends, and we can watch them tear you apart like the wolves they are..
note: 954 AD the Bishop of Rome is the leader of Christendom.
1054 AD the Eastern Orthodox say 'ah not anymore'
So, the previous yrs you followed the Bishop of Rome's lead. Right? Its proven fact. Now, instead of a Pope, you follow the Patriarchs lead. Makes zero sense.
well clay...I dont feel the need to debate anything about the Orthodox beliefs to the protestants here.They know of my faith.The problem is that YOUR church is the topix here claiming to be the TRUE CHURCH OF CHRIST.Thats where the Orthodox differ to you.Now I am not going to side up with catholics here just because we do share common beliefs.The Truth is the Orthodox Church is the Church that the catholic church broke from cuz it wanted to be head of all the church and the other Four Patriarch said NO...One broke from the four others NOT four Patriarch broke from ONE...common sense tells you this...perod...My husband provided a long posting that explained 1.the East never recognised a POPE of primacy authority.2.the Ecumenical Patriarch is a title of respect he has no authority or power like the Pope.But then again the only source you use for truth and history is the catholic church.

Not likely. Having been a Catholic, you get right into the discussions about what Jesus said and did, and your lies are as noted as the lies of others, who still continue to try in VAIN to make a faithful Jew into a traitor of his own religion.
Oh - so you want to worry yourself.

Gotcha.

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
The Thessalonians were like the sola scriptura folks, "if I don't see it in black and white in the bible it ain't true!!!", the Bereans (the early Catholics/Orthodox), seeing that Jesus was not explicitly mentioned in the OT, belived St. Paul's ORAL preaching.

"Let me explain the problem science has with religion."
The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand.

'You're a Christian, aren't you, son?'

'Yes sir,' the student says.

'So you believe in God?'

'Absolutely '

'Is God good?'

'Sure! God's good.'

'Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?'

'Yes'

'Are you good or evil?'

'The Bible says I'm evil.'

The professor grins knowingly.'Aha! The Bible! He considers for a moment.'Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?'

'Yes sir, I would.'

'So you're good....!'

'I wouldn't say that.'

'But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn't.'

The student does not answer, so the professor continues.'He doesn't, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though h e prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Can you answer that one?'

The student remains silent.'No, you can't, can you?' the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax.'Let's start again, young fella.. Is God good?'

'Er..yes,' the student says.

'Is Satan good?'

The student doesn't hesitate on this one..'No.'

'Then where does Satan come from?'

The student falters.'From God'

'That's right. God made Satan, didn't he? Tell me, son. Is there evil in this world?'

'Yes, sir.'

'Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything, correct?'

'Yes'

You're the one who made the statement, the onus is on you, kid. I don't need to defend the Catholic Church, Christ has taken care of all of that and if you don't think your attacks on His Church aren't personal, you're even more clueless than you appear. YOu sound like a child, are you old enough to be on here?

'So who created evil?' The professor continued,'If God created
everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil.'

Again, the student has no answer.'Is there sickness? Immorality?
Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this
world?'

The student squirms on his feet.'Yes.'

'So who created them ?'

The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his
question.'Who created them?' There is still no answer. Suddenly the lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom.. The class is mesmerized.'Tell me,' he continues onto another student.'Do you believe in Jesus Christ, son?'

The student's voice betrays him and cracks.'Yes, professor, I do.'

The old man stops pacing.'Science says you have five senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen Jesus?'

'No sir. I've never seen Him.'

'Then tell us if you've ever heard your Jesus?'

'No, sir, I have not.'

'Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God for that matter?'

'No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't.'

'Yet you still believe in him?'

'Yes'

The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The room suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain.'You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't have anything called 'cold'. We can hit down to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest -458 degrees. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy.. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat. You see, sir, cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in
thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of
heat, sir, just the absence of it.'

Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom, sounding like a hammer

'What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?'

'Yes,' the professor replies without hesitation.'What is night if it
isn't darkness?'

'You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have nothing and it's called darkness, isn't it? That's the meaning we use to define the word. In reality, darkness isn't. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?'

The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This
will be a good semester.'So what point are you making, young man?'

'Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed..'

The professor's face cannot hide his surprise this time.'Flawed? Can you explain how?'

'You are working on the premise of duality,' the student explains..
'You argue that there is life and then there's death; a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought.'
'It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less
fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it.'
'Now tell me, professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?'

'If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of course I do.'

'Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?'

The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes where the argument is going. A very good semester, indeed.

'Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher?'
