Peace be with you.
After a discussion between MattmanDude, CrazyOldTeenager, and myself, a short (but to the point) series of rules will now be coming into effect for this...
Basileus Basileon Basileuon Basileuonton. Translated as "king of kings, ruling over rulers"
Just a message from an old wanderer passing through.
Lot of information for new recruits packed into a mere article. Also has three medal of honor soundtracks to listen too while reading if you want. Enjoy.
Your new order of business now that you are a member of the Grand Army of the Lord Jesus Christ.
What makes Lord Jesus the son of God is because He returned to life after 3 days after death , time when He went to Hell and released all souls who fell there until His presence on Earth since the beginning of humankind and then He returned back to Earth in body too.
These feats if believed entirely and taken for granted literally make Lord Jesus not just a man or a teacher but the son of God.
Nothing against other denominations of Christianity but orthodoxy holds a part of the story that the other christian beliefs do not.
Then Lord Jesus talked for the last time with His apostles and slowly He rose to heaven promising His return. After He could not be seen anymore two angels appeared and told the apostles to not fear because Lord Jesus will return in the same way He left and to go and spread the gospel to all peoples on Earth.
What's not known however is the missing period since Lord Jesus's childhood until the period we all know well.
Must've been something taken and hidden from people to know of , most likely.
Of course this is just me how i see things. Everyone else is entitled to their own version of faith but me , i always liked and taken for granted more the surrealistic version of the story( any story) than the watered down version.
Btw if one wants to become a christian and is not then they should go baptise themselves at a church , in a physical , real life manner for it is through baptism that the soul in question receives the blessing from God and the Holy Spirit to reside in them.
I believe in water baptism as a way of confirming one that they believe in Christ.
As for the Holy Spirit.
The Book of Acts chapter 2 is where I believe one gets the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Wait, what is this group all about? Orthodox, Catholic etc. Christians? Or just Christians?
Read the description and/or look at the forums.
Any member of the Christian faith, or anyone just interested in discussing Christianity in a civil manner is welcome here.
Just joined here, I'm Orthodox by the way.
For me God is what He always said He is : " I am One and All , the Alpha and the Omega " so i don't question His words.
Sometimes i hated Him because life for me didn't turn out the way i wanted , sometimes i loved Him for having saved me from really bad life situations.
I'm not a betrayer and never will be so even if sometimes i don't like the path of Good , i continue to walk on it no matter what.
To those that lost relatives i would say this : “Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealously. The shadow of greed, that is.”
And personally i'd say don't mourn the departed , mourn the living.It's much harder to live than to die.
Nice song Yukino.
God bless Earth and all its people.
God loves me. And you know why? I follow in 'its' footsteps, seriously. :)
How would you describe your relation with this deity?
My buddies family and the lord
