More heartfelt sincerity from you, I see. Now I understand why they....yes, why they, indeed. Thanks for proving me right.
What a filthy mouth you have. Seems I'm not the first one to tell you that today. You two have a nice time cuddling up, now.
Thanks, again!!

Jesus is behind my posts.

Who's "behind that deception" that you think you know is?

Please post, I'm dying to find out!!

*sighs*

I'll pray for you to receive the truth.

Father of everyone, please give Regina the power to seek you in truth and not throught he precepts of men.

Amen.

How can anyone in good conscience claim that the Catholic Church is "arrogant" when the Orthodox Church teaches and preaches and believes the exact same thing??
You can't. Not in good conscience. Not with any honesty.
But you'll ignore it and pretend they don't teach the same thing.
Because of anti-Catholic bigotry.
Pure and simple.
Because you want to live with each other without being married. You want to have the "freedom" to abort your babies. You want to "marry" men to men and women to women. You want to divorce and remarry at will. You want to contracept. You want to do any number of things that God said you are not to do and the Catholic Church is your most vocal opponent.
That's why you have no integrity and insist the Church is being arrogant in stating the truth.
And you have lots of company in *your* arrogance. You call them "friends".
well number one...the orthodox church is the the subject of this forum and 2...nick and I seem to be the only orthodox here and we don't brag about the churches position because that is not what is suppose to be done....Pride remember...now when it comes to defending our beliefs .....you can lead a horse to water but you cant make him drink it...GOT IT OR IS THIS ABOUVE YOUR HEAD!

No.

I am not lying.

It was you who denied what actually happened. Not I.

This is not a game. You have sought to smear me on this forum. What you've done is sinful and you're persisting in it. Now you have your friends making lewd and disgusting comments to me.

I refuse to argue with you any longer. You are in the wrong on this. I am not. That's all there is to it. Now take it to your filthy mouthed friends because I have no use for it or you. You have my pity. I'm finished here.

When you quoted the link why did you leave out the rest of the quote, ie

Fr. Seraphim answered as follows:

I was happy to receive your letter—happy not because you are confused about the question that troubles you, but because your attitude reveals that in the truth of Orthodoxy to which you are drawn you wish to find room also for a loving, compassionate attitude to those outside the Orthodox Faith.

I firmly believe that this is indeed what Orthodoxy teaches….

I will set forth briefly what I believe to be the Orthodox attitude towards non-Orthodox Christians.

1. Orthodoxy is the Church founded by Christ for the salvation of mankind, and therefore we should guard with our life the purity of its teaching and our own faithfulness to it. In the Orthodox Church alone is grace given through the sacraments (most other churches don’t even claim to have sacraments in any serious sense). The Orthodox Church alone is the Body of Christ, and if salvation is difficult enough within the Orthodox Church, how much more difficult must it be outside the Church!

2. However, it is not for us to define the state of those who are outside the Orthodox Church. If God wishes to grant salvation to some who are Christians in the best way they know, but without ever knowing the Orthodox Church—that is up to Him, not us. But when He does this, it is outside the normal way that He established for salvation—which is in the Church, as a part of the Body of Christ. I myself can accept the experience of Protestants being ‘born-again’ in Christ; I have met people who have changed their lives entirely through meeting Christ, and I cannot deny their experience just because they are not Orthodox.

Afraid of facing the truth?????
I believe what the Holy Word say's.
As far as denigrating what you believe,I am not.
I have been defending my faith.
You are the one that keeps telling me that I am not in the church.
That is denigrating my beliefs.
I believe that it's the Lords place to say who is in the church.
Not your place.
Believe what you want John.
Blessings.
The truth is that you follow Baptist TRADITION.
You refuse to accept that. But you do.
As for you not being in the Church, you are not. Sorry. You don't have the Apostolic Faith and you are not in communion with the Church. All the promises that were made to the Church were made to the Church, not anyone and everyone.
That is simply a fact.
Now God is merciful and He may still save you but he doesn't have to. I hope He does but He is free to do as He wants.
Yes!!!!!!! Thank you Preston

<quoted text>Ok John, I thought we both were in schism. I don't know alot about this but my understanding was over the definition of Peter being equal to other Apostles or on the same level, I know this is an overly simplified example. And I understand both sides excommunicated each other.
http://www.catholic.com/thisrock/2006/0601fea ...
You continue to refer to a statement being put out of both East and West. Is ecumenism close?

The person I replied to, "Catholic Patriot" is one of the few idiot Roman Catholics who come here. I have little patience with fools and he is one of them. I still remember him saying that the Greeks translated the Vulgate into Greek to get the New Testament. So I like to poke a stick when he goes off with some of his nonsense.

Your priest is functioning in the same capacity as mine, regardless of where you're standing. Sera, I'm certain your sacrament of Confession is the same. It looks like I have to ask an Orthodox myself now.

You have your Tradition then, for it is how you do your so called communion service.
Your services are lead by your pastor.
St. James, the brother of the Lord, wrote a Liturgy that we still use. Complete with prayers that were said. It wasn't a free for all as you seem to enjoy. Do you think you know better than St. James, the bishop of Jerusalem mentioned in the Bible?
I guess you do.
I aint arguing with you John.
Remember what I said?
Notice,I didn't say anything about how your church conducts your service.
If that's how y'all do it,then that is your buisness.
I thought that would end the discussion.
But nooooo,you just keep it going.
Think what you want John.
If you believe I'm not in the church,then have at it.
I think it's time we stop dragging a good man like John into these discussions. He is with Christ now and I don't think he appreciates us using him as weapon against each other.

I don't doubt you could go back and find many episodes of heated exchanges. In fact, I believe you probably will. I'm not sure what that will show ... The only way to get an idea is to read them all, not pick a few ugly ones out.

Or I didn't learn what I KNOW, I LEARNED ..And have pulled out my OLD,CATECHISM to prove it ..

Hard-earned you could get indulgences,for people who died like my father ..But Cannot remember the specifics ..But I tried to follow the rules...prayers were one thing though

Still incorrect Anthony.
I don't believe men. Especially those who lived 2000 years ago, and everything they supposedly said is only from the 4th C.
Yes Anthony - there are no exisiting NT texts earlier than the 4th C. whether you think there is or not, is really irrelevant.
You are also incorrect with your statement here:
"You believe the men who rejected what those men said."
- HUH? I'll utilize the Apostles that were taught by Jesus and you now say I reject them?
You are confused and blatantly showing your arrogance, with you thinking you know what I believe and don't.
Are you psychic?
Neither of us have the originals. You're in the same boat NASL.
