Are there any non-American Christians on int? No memes plz, I wanna see a general demographic of the religiosity of /int/
>not being religious
it's like you don't want to be on the winning side
i read full bible (orthodox canon which is close to catholic, it use all sacred sriptures of ancient jews, not partly like protestants) and i want to say, that everything is logical and really good. God doing everything right. bad people always punished fore very evil good people always encouraged for any good. you stealed? somebody will steal from you (or any way this money - same amount yoy stolen - will given away from you). and all that way. everything is right.
my friend in msocow stolen (he somepart gopnik) old bmw. next week he broke to shit his own which was approx same cost. also he was almost killed, but or lucky coincindense survived. little closer pillar that he drove in and he would be dead, just luck.
also if you want jsut go to heaven you need only read gospel (wrods of Jesus) and you will go to heaven. "everybody who will do what i said will never see the death" - its what Jesus the True God said
I can relate a lot to this scene, particularly when he says:
>Is it so terribly inconceivable to comprehend God with one's senses?
>How can we believe in the faithful when we lack faith?
>What will happen to us who want to believe, but cannot?
>religion should be taken as philosophy
Than it should be fully and critically criticized for any faulty conclusion it presents. Philosophy is a continual process of argumentation which refines itself and adapts to new criteria, not "thinking about deep concepts dude it's like metaphorical ayy".
fuck muslims and protestants
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. (c) Jesus. also all criticism of christianity without exeption is based on people who claims themself to be christians bo do not do what is God's will (words of Jesus). bible said it many times, Jesus said it many times
I'm not trying to argue about religions stop moving the goalposts, I'm talking about this anon treating religion as philosophy. It is in no way philosophy. They are completely different things and calling one the other is an insult to both.
Everyone today is an Atheist. People are rediscovering what religion means and slowly reintroducing themselves to it. Not that many people are religious but more are understanding what good can come out of it and how important it is to have instead of a void for something like Islam to fill.
I prefer to think that God is truly forgiving and will let that sin of mine pass, seeing that I'm not ill-intended. I could very well just force myself to accept the religion, go to the church every week, and try and do everything the Bible says, but it still wouldn't change the fact that I lack arguably the most important thing in a religion - faith. Fernando Pessoa's explains very well what I mean in the first 'chapter' on his Book of Disquiet:
>Not knowing nor able to know what religious life is, since faith isn’t acquired through reason
>Either way, it's up to humanity to rise up and take our rightful place as the rulers of the heavens.
What do you even mean with that? What is our heaven? Why is it our rightful place?
God isn't dont care he just wait for things people do, then always goes effects. punishment or encouraging not like God forget about earth and dont care. every human has its own court by God. also God is invisible always was and always will until the Second Coming, bible clearly say it many times. only who do what Jesus said know the God.
thats most typical catholics problem. you have to many priests and philisophy that said what to do. just do what Jesus said you will go to heaven. its easy and you dont do much,
"25 At that time Jesus declared, “I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes; 26 yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will.[f] 27 All things have been delivered to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
funny thing that i read old tastement and it said many times "you priests do many evil things God will punish you" and all that russian priests did before 1917 year was pretty that way what about bible said not to do. than bible said "so you didnt accept God's will and so i'm The God would destroy you churches kill you priests and all of you will go to slavery" and then Babylon slavery happen for 70 years, and churches was detroyed and priests killed and people go to slavery
>many sinful priests before 1917
>70 years of communists slavery
That is to say, at least the Americlap ones
You'd think the baptists had a monopoly on religious retardation and faggotry in america, but then you come online and the catholicfags try and fight tooth and nail for that title
70 years is harsh. If the sin was praising with their lips while being deceitful in their heart, they certainly aren't the first or last church to do that.
>Enjoy having your homelqnd get taken over by midslimes
Baptised or active? I think not less than 70% of Russians are baptised.
the problem is orthodox church is created by Jesus directly (Jesus said "hell gates will never get my church"), and its exacltly taht church what about gospel and new tastement tell. and God said in bible "whome I love - i punish" so if other churches did that and and wanst punished its because they are not created by Jesus and he is not care would they sin or not. but orthodox is church that Jesus keeps crystal clear so while other wasnt punished we was.
come on guys enough we are all christians and brothers. "love you neibour as yourself" - second main condemn as Jesus said. "love each other as i love you", "do to people what you wan the did to you in this are law and the prophets" so listen to Jesus and calm down
Jesus also said
3 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor[g] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,[h] 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your brethren[i] only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors[j] do so? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
