    This thread reeks of pride, OP. Denominations don't mean anything, the faith points to developing a relationship with God.

        Amen. I mean, technically you're quoting Paul, but Paul is referencing Jeremiah.

        I'm not a Protestant. But what I do know, is that they adhere to the Bible. You still have much to learn, my friend. If you search deep enough, you will find flaws in all denominations.

          Though I don't agree on some of their interpretation, I don't really know much about them other than what I've come across on this board. I don't care to learn about denominations, because that's not what the faith is about.

          Protestants twist and turn whatever is in the Bible to suit their own worldly desires. Best example is all the gay friendly prot churches in America.

            There are plenty of "catholic" fag pushers to, dumbass, do you really think any of those people are actually of the faith? No, they're grifters preying on children while their young, convince them that homosexualry and other assorted ills are fine before they grow up so the church deteriorates more and more. They're not going to convince adults so they target the next generation.

          Oh yes because the Bible is a living authority right, and not a literal book, literal markings on a page that people twist in 1000 directions according to their own sinful passions. That’s so wise anon

                All it does is point out the flaw in humanity, that corruption reigns deep within man. Jesus touched on spiritual matters that I don't think you understand, but given that you are trolling I don't think it's something that you even care to discuss in the first place, so I'll end our discussion here.

                It’s a roadmap to find the Church, which contains the orthodox teaching of the scriptures (through the guidance of Christ and the Spirit), and which the Bible speaks of over and over again in its pages

                It goes beyond well beyond that, again. I'm sorry you didn't get the main point of what it meant to relay. But then again, it's not for everyone to understand, and Jesus made that clear.

                It’s meant to relay something other than the remembrance of Jesus Christ (the full revelation of God)? What would that be anon?

              No one says you can’t think for yourself. Think for yourself as to whether it’s a good idea to submit to Jesus Christ or not via the apostles sent by Him into the world. No one is forcing you to do anything

                Not currently, yeah, but for most of history, Catholics DID force people to submit to them. Literally gave them a "join the Church or die" ultimatum. Sometimes even killed other loyal Catholics like the cartoon supervillains they are.

      It's more than just reading, it's about putting to action what you learn. This is something that is explained in the scriptures. True understanding is a gift from God. Sure, anyone can read from it and come up with their own understanding, but there does exist a objective understanding of what it is meant to relay, and again; scripture touches on this.

                WHAT’S not about denomination? Who receives a positive judgment? That is well known. There will be many surprises on the last day. Doesn’t mean Jesus didn’t leave behind a church guided by the Spirit to teach scripture authoritatively. It says so in the Bible

                I’m talking about inner submission, what you think inside your head and whether you believe Christ. That you are always free to do whether or not competing religious practices are proscribed or not. (The Christian claim is that submission to Christ is good btw)

                You said "No one says you can’t think for yourself," which is incorrect. Catholics say you can't think for yourself, it is the entire crux of their belief. Also, believing in Christ isn't good enough for Catholics, given how they butchered Protestants, Cathars, Orthodox, and other non-Catholic Christians. And I'm pretty sure "inner submission" is irrelevant when you're fucking dead.

                Even if a member of the Vatican’s Swiss guard forced you you convert at the sword, and you faked conversion and went through the motions just to keep your own life (rather than choosing to become a martyr for some other faith), you would still always maintain the inner choice to

                Of course, conversion by sword isn’t from Christ, and thankfully it wasn’t practised in the ORTHODOX parts of the empire (although under some emperors, pagans were ordered to attend church and be baptized, in the spirit of uniting the realm under the faith, and israelites and Samaritans were barred from receiving dowries or inheritances unless they converted. But they didn’t butcher. Guess what, if there is a Christian society that wants to be Christian, and you don’t want to be, then put on your fedora, and leave!

                Tell that to the Muslims and pagans who had their native lands invaded and conquered. I guess that Muslim child in Jerusalem who got torn out of its mother's belly by a Crusader should've just put on its fedora and left, huh? Also, while Orthodox are definitely the LEAST retarded Christians, they still had their fair share of massacres. The Massacre of the Latins being the most infamous.

                May the Lord bless and have mercy on the Orthodox people, especially the clergy (who, in orthodoxy, face the steepest uphill on the path to salvation)
