Let's not get too serious anons, let's share the love of Christ with our brethren!
resist the urge to respond to them
>>4517616sappy romanticismif you wanna see just how much of a bad mammajamma this blind guy was, read the scriptures which show him being interrogated by the priests after he was healed, and how he schooled them as to whether christ was from godyeah, sure, he probably had a few moments of wonder after he was healed from being bind from birth, but if you wanna understand the point of why god ordained this man to be blind from birth, and exactly what kinda dude he had become after years of being a beggar in a society which assumed illness was a sign of condemnation -- likely giving him a thick skin against the accusations of faux-religionists, and the wit to meet them head on -- read john chapter 9the films just can't do the actual narrative justice, director's always focusing on the wrong thing out of a desire to stir emotions rather than examine god's revelation of self
>>4517627take a chill pill pastor. the video is showing how Christ healed him of something that afflicted him all his life, and we're supposed to imagine being in his shoes, and think of how something similar could happen to us.I think that's a cut segment of a longer video anyway.
>>4517640He makes a good point tho....
>>4517640>I think that's a cut segment of a longer video anyway.well hey, maybe the director showed the wider context, but you still have the problem of the film breaking the second commandmentdo you think Christ is chill about that ?
>>4517647what? not worshipping idols?
Sadly there are people who hate Jesus...
>>4517647>nice depiction of Jesus healing blind man, no biblical inaccuracy>"but you still have the problem of the film breaking the second commandment"
>>4517417Ironic considering this image is commonly associated with Nietchse. Was it chosen purposely? Also any thoughts on Kierkegaard?
>>4518004Kierkegaard is basedeveryone should read Fear and Trembling
Do you ever just wonder if god hates his followers? Or if he hates us as humans?
>>4518209God loves us, so much so that he died for us, even though we're degenerate sinners who deserve punishment
>>4518215>god loves us so much he put us in world where pain and misery exists, and if we aren’t happy about that he sends us to a place of eternal pain and misery. >before that people just kinda stopped existing when they died, until god “sacrificed” himself in a 30 year long blood ritual to guarantee our pain and misery after death unless we follow specific rules about penises. Except god didn’t really die so it wasn’t a sacrifice but you’re still cursed>your reward for masochistic obedience to worldly men with his name on their lips is total ego death that lasts forever. You as a concept cease to exist, but you’re still aware all the mandatory praising you do of god. To do this you must spend your finite amount of time on earth giving the basic essentials of life to other men who dress funny at least once a week. This is how you get the “not-hell” ending.
>>4518588on the matter of a world of pain>how much of our pain, of the world's suffering is caused by us?>can natural privation be overcome by man?>can manmade privation be solved by man?>can natural ailments and afflictions take hold over ourselves if we were not so distracted by other matters?>is the natural world so lenient and peaceful that we must dusturb it further with manmade atrocity and affliction?>could one man, blessed by god, provide change to these systems if he devoted his life to them?>could 10? or 100? or 1000? a million? a billion?the answer to these questions is the first step to understanding why life is suffering. Original sin exists, for it is the sin of the father. the failures of yesterday carried forth to burden the born of today.We must therefore solve and absolve these things and work in christ not to create nor carry forward our own sin lest we lay it upon our own sons! In christ all things are possible, and through him man is called to be made better!
>>4518209"If you then, evil (sinful by nature) as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give what is good and advantageous to those who keep on asking Him."
>>4518588God didn't add misery or pain here, we did that. God gives us and respects our free will completely. Humans are spirits in a body with a mind and do not cease to exist, before or after Jesus. Jesus provided a way to be redeemed for those before and after him, so that all blessings may come to us who do no deserve it, reconciled us with God.
post the Barabbas one
>>4517644someone who knows the name of the song?
Don't get TOO comfy now, Christians; those tithing dollars tend to turn into hush money when you do.
>>4517711>peoplei only see a rat in your webl
>>4517711Obviously was being flippant
>tfw will likely never see the reunification of rome and constantinople under one church in my lifetimeDo you guys think God cares whether we receive the sacraments from the Catholic or Orthodox church? All I want to do is move to Russia and life my life as a siberian hunter with a qt Russian wife and 10 children :(
>>4521418The catholic Church considers the orthodox church sacraments to be valid since they are still apostolic churches.
>>4520886>this somehow excuses it
>>4517711>>4520886it's a joke yeah but Sarah Silverman is genuinely one of the most degeneracy promoting NWO complicit jews in hollywood
>>4518588Hellp friend, read this and it will counter the points you made (points I also struggled with in trying to accept God) https://blogs.ancientfaith.com/glory2godforallthings/the-river-of-fire-kalomiros/
>>4521418You'll see the entire world under Jesus in the next 12 years, just going to get really shit for people beforehand
the kingdom of god extends to all that isand i am it's sole ruler
>>4517901Bishop Williamson needs to stop LARPing as a Nazi and take the Logospill
>>4517417What happened to Christianity exactly?
>>4517644Where is the art in this from?
>>4523180I think/hope pastors and churches like this are few and far between, but the answer to your question is clown world and lack of Christians having a spine
>>4523219i got a whole folder dedicated to pozzed Christianity bro
>>4523243evangelical churches is what went wrong
>>4523243tiktok is saturated with them, it isn't an accurate sample group
>>4519488>free will No such a thing.Human will being free in any meaningful way would be incompatible with an omniscient and omnipotent creator.
>>4523270whence comest thou out from reddit pseudointellectual nigger
>>4523273>trying so hard to fit inAt least pretend you have an argument, anon. This is embarrassing.
>>4523180>>4523243Christianity is a product of Jewish pathological behavior, their deepest neuroses sublimated into a multicultural belief system and the first successful attempt at a one world religion, one of the pillars of the NWO. It displaced genuine, native spirituality as the original globohomo project, an ideology enabled by pandering to the lower classes through empty promises of equality and driven by handouts (i.e. charity) in exchange for their brand loyalty. The leftist circus you see today is nothing more than its logical conclusion.
>>4523318>proceeds to fuck niggers because god doesn't make mistakes
>>4523321How long can you go any any given day without thinking about black cock?
>>4523331longer than your mom
>>4523248exactly what evangelicals say about whatever denomination you are >>4523258it was starting long before tiktok
>>4523275you didn't make any argument yourself faggot, you just made what you thought was a deep statement. there's no reason those things are incompatible.I think I know what you're gonna say though>hurr if God noes wut ur gonna do den u didnt chooseyeah you did retard it was still your choice
>>4523654>getting out of the way of a ritual is twisted into running away in fearwould barging through it be any better?
>>4523159Beter Off Alone
>>4523725Anon, what causes you to choose one thing over another? Were you not created by God and, therefore, your own natural inclinations designed by Him?
>>4524174God gave us our agency as well, the point of this life is a test, if we were just dumb machines with a fate carved in stone he may as well have sorted us into "good" and "bad" without all the drama. your "inclinations" may be ingrained by your DNA and the conditions of your upbringing but you still choose the direction of your life.
>>4518196What's the name of the second song?
>>4523654I need the name of the song
>>4517721Campbell is much like Zizek. He's insightful, he approaches religion with the wit of a clever critic, but his inability to go beyond psychoanalysis and actually enter into the perspective of a believer limits his understanding. Ultimately, a good mind poisoned by a jewish mode of thinking.
>>4523180anyone can buy a clerical collar. There's a lot of tiktok psyops following this route. During this abortion frenzy right now, there's plenty of fake christians who are available to news media to say "actually christianity doesn't care about abortion." They're just props. They're there to stand in as Christians in a ritual of humiliation. They're living effigies.
>>4525637You're just waltzing around the problem, anon. What causes you to use that "agency" and do something God either approves or disapproves of? Isn't it those very inclinations programmed by God Himself in us which distinguish a saint from an unrepentant sinner?>if we were just dumb machines with a fate carved in stone he may as well have sorted us into "good" and "bad" without all the dramaIndeed. The drama is a religious invention, there are only predetermined causes and effects.
>>4523802Did you not see the looks on their faces? You are not a good judge of character.
>>4523802or calmly stand to the side like literally everyone else.
>>4526386>going around it is a sign of fearkeep telling yourself that man>>4526502nobody's obligated to waste their time
