Hello and welcome all to /christian/, the new church of the cafe. I'll be taking over from the old owner, so if there's anything you want to tell me about the board, go ahead and do it here. In addition, I'm looking for a few mods to maintain the status of the board. If you're interested, please, contact me at churchofanoncafe@airmail.cc to let me know.

A Christian Cultural Revolution AntichristHater69 04/11/2022 (Mon) 20:20:44 No.7790 [Reply] [Last]
The boards been feeling kinda dead lately so i figured i would make a thread addressing a important issue i dont see often talked about, the idea of a Christian cultural revolution. I want this thread to be both a place for discussion and coordination on how we accomplish our collective goal of destroying the current demonic culture and establishing a new Christian one. Keep D&C to a minimum. Cultural focus points: Abortion and Sex Mass Media Gluttony Poverty Tactical focus points: Dispersion of Ideas Methods and Tactics Organizing

>>11420 I think Luke and Acts were written close together which means Luke is later since Acts of course has to been at least past 60 AD. Luke says in Acts that he already sent his Gospel account of Jesus to Theophilus. Calls it a former account and I just feel he probably wrote to this patron Theophilus and then was commissioned to write more shortly after. Luke and then Acts probably a year or two later. Theophilus being a patron of course by how he refers to him. Of course Luke being first makes a lot of sense if Theophilus paid for Luke to write his Gospel. 1. Why would Theophilus need to do this if other Gospels already existed. 2. How cheap would it be for Luke to take already existing material and send it to Theophilus. Although being the events in the Gospel are true what exactly is expected in terms of differences. 3 years is not very much time although yes John says Jesus did tons of things. Luke was likely not a witness to Jesus so all he can do is go by what was already written and what witnesses could add for him. In such a case why would Theophilus ask someone like Luke to write an account of Jesus anyways. If Theophilus asked him then all he could do is go off other writing and reports and he does have a lot that isn't in Mark or Matthew. Theophilus could have just been a bit dismissive of the Gospels demanding one be written specifically for him or he could have been a great guy wanting to get this stuff written afterall both Like and Acts which were written to him didn't disappear into history, Theophilius could have desired to get them mass produced.
>>11443 My guess: He found the other gospels somewhat sparse, and the material that's unique to Luke is precisely what he wanted. So he paid Luke to go around and interview witnesses and write down what they say and combine it with other accounts for as close to a full history as possible.

Praying the Psalms Anonymous 05/19/2022 (Thu) 20:55:49 No.11364 [Reply]
What do you guys make of using the Psalms as a prayer book? I'm an Orthodox Christian and just recently purchased a pocket sized Psalter (pic related, it's the one I bought from Jordanville), and decided to incorporate the Psalms into my daily prayer life. Do any of you pray the Psalms? Have you considered it? Do you use the Septuagint or Masoretic Texts as the basis for your Psalter?
2 posts omitted.
>>11364 Psalms are built into the order for daily prayer for Anglicans so yes. It occurs to me now that this might not be the case for other Christians. Do you not have appointed psalms in your private devotions in EO? I generally use the Coverdale translation in my 1662 BCP which is still the most poetic and pleasing-to-the-ears version of Psalms in English today. The translation of that Bible generally comes from the Greek and Latin as far as I'm aware although I'm not greatly knowledgeable in these things.
>>11430 >There is a reason that the word says to avoid 'vain repetitions'. Yes: "for they think they shall be heard for their much speaking"
>>11364 I pray the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It's mostly psalms, three for the main prayers and one for the smaller ones during the main part of the day.

>>11364 Praying through the Psalms has helped me through many difficult times. Sometimes one's heart aches to pray, but does not have the words, or is distressed and cannot focus. I open the Psalms and pray with David, as I would a friend or family member, praying through multiple psalms and following their ups and downs, until my prayers are answered and I am given peace. >Do you use the Septuagint or Masoretic Texts as the basis for your Psalter? Sometimes I consult the Orthodox Study Bible (especially for its notes), but I must confess: I have a weakness for the beauty of the King James Version's Psalms. Like much ancient literature and most poetry, the Bible was written to be either read aloud or heard from another, and the KJV's translators were particularly sensitive to this. The way it flows and sounds is beautiful, spellbinding, and I cannot get enough of it. >>11430 >>11436 >There is a reason that the word says to avoid 'vain repetitions'. Which is immediately followed by Jesus giving The Lord's Prayer, a prayer which Jesus himself repeated multiple times throughout his life and instructed us to pray as well. Note that he specifies vain repetition, not repetition per se. Scripture is read, recited, or quoted, not improvised, and yet it still enters your heart. You can sing the Psalms from your heart, and many (if not all) of these Psalms are also prayers. So tell me: if a psalm, which is doubles as a prayer, is prayed instead of chanted, sung, or read as a lecture, does it cease to be from the heart?
>>11448 Does he mean vain as in praying the prayer without any reverence in it or did he mean vain as in praying publicly as the Pharisees did to show off how pious they were, or both?

Pray for it if you are lacking.

>>11434 Lol, no I'm still here Anon thanks. :^) So, I'm not privy to any insider takes regarding Adamson. But the simple fact is it's quite unusual for a man of his talent that has wrangled several billions of box-office gross to abruptly cease following closely on the tail of nominal successes. It's been several years now, and frankly I have only heard gossip from before. Certainly when they gave him the boot it was far more low-key than my Baste Big Brother Mad Max shitstirred their little (((hornet's nest))) up into haha. >Also can we have a Narnia film night? I think that would be great. I'm sure Anoncafe Admins would do an announcement for /christian/ if we organized such. The otterbros are having their Ottercine next week on May 25th.

A lot probably most of the people who post here are not saved. Obviously, and frankly I'm sick of it. If you haven't read the Gospel yet with an open heart than you need to, today. You're going to be in for a big surprise on judgement when you find out you are not a disciple. I don't want anyone to be in for a surprise. You're not reading the Bible to get smarter. A total change needs to happen in your life with humility and repentence and start over. If you are defeated by sin over and over again, if you don't make any progress toward understanding Jesus if you do not love Jesus, if your priority is to go to Heaven rather than be with Jesus and have his likeness than you need to be born again and ask Jesus to do this. Jesus is only wanting those who truly want him. If you are not being aiding by the Holy Spirit you are not saved. And this is serious. There are audio Bibles with read along text on the internet, very good way to read the Gospel. You are not going to Heaven because you were baptised, you are not going to Heaven because you repent of your sins every day or because you put up a fight and struggle with sin. If you don't know that Jesus has saved you from the wreckage you are not with him. And I think it's time to lay that out very bluntly all you people cursing about N-words and you have lewd but not nude anime images and you think other religions are pretty cool that is ALL from Hell. It's very important to understand the Gospel and accept you need to die and give up your life everything. If you spend all day watching e-drama videos and posting about skin colour racial groups on imageboards and zero time watching sermons or learning more about God and the Bible you're not going to Heaven just because you believe Jesus probably rose from the dead. A lot of people know all this but, obviously many many who post here are not real Christians and I think there's one other thread about this but please do inspect yourself.

And because so few people are saved here they are NOT working out their salvation because they don't have it, probably because they are being told by sick Gospel corrupters that they need to just be good enough and eat wine and bread and fast. So they can still swear and talk nonsense and watch ecchi anime or whatever. So stop messing around and if you are not sure of your salvation then you need to get sure. Because that's just the beginning. We don't work to get saved we are saved to do to works, very blatantly said in the letter to the Ephesians: "for by grace ye are having been saved, through faith, and this not of you -- of God the gift, not of works, that no one may boast; for of Him we are workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to good works, which God did before prepare, that in them we may walk." And that is a real literal verse and there is many that we are to serve God simply by faith and grace and it has nothing to do with salvation or sins being forgiven. Jesus forgave people's sins because of their faith. Including even the woman who anointed him with oil and perfume and wiped his feet, he says it is her faith that is why her sins are forgiven. The cursing and the race topics which have died down anyways since I made this thread but for anyone who thinks they are in Christ and still acting like the world you have been tricked. And it's time to get more serious and really take that time because it is serious. If your life hasn't made a change, that's trouble. For anyone holding on to something that they know comes between them and Christ or that they know they should let go of, if anything came to mind then let go of it. Walk in faith which leads to good deeds, you could only do good and selfless deeds if you have faith. Do you really believe that Jesus died and rose. Do you really believe that he can forgive all your sins past present and future. You still of course need to confess sins, you should and be forgiven but the Holy Spirit chooses you when you believe you can be forgiven and changed. Some need to really have faith in the power of Jesus and that dedicating everything to him can only be a good thing. No holding on to anything else.
Boast that God saved someone who did not deserve it. Paul's letters are many times about warning churches to stop trying to be "extra saved" because it was and still is a widespread problem. Until you are certain of your being set aside for the Kingdom you are going to struggle with sin. Until you have a true sense of Heaven and of love and appreciation of God. Doubt of God's words and power is going to give you sin. Believe Jesus can once and for all cure you and change you, even if he saves you and you begin to doubt then that's the only thing that will make you a backslider. Doubt is the heart of backsliding. And you can essentially doubt yourself out of God just as you must faith yourself into him. He really wants that because faith is trust and if you trust God is good and perfect then you'll do his will always and everything works. "For not through law is the promise to Abraham, or to his seed, of his being heir of the world, but through the righteousness of faith;" "for if Abraham by works was declared righteous, he hath to boast -- but not before god; for what doth the writing say? `And Abraham did believe God, and it was reckoned to him -- to righteousness;' and to him who is working, the reward is not reckoned of grace, but of debt; and to him who is not working, and is believing upon Him who is declaring righteous the impious, his faith is reckoned -- to righteousness:" Now you say, oh you're really saying we can just lie around then since we don't have to do anything. No. I want to address people who are not even at step one being hired and yet are trying to jump to step three, working. You are hired on Earth not in Heaven and you are then given training by the Holy Spirit and then work, of course you still learn and train your whole life by experience and all that. And losing your job is extremely difficult but it's a different topic.

Defeating sexual desires Anonymous 11/04/2021 (Thu) 19:15:55 No.1789 [Reply] [Last]
Hello anons. My heart is somewhat heavy as I write this, I do not have anyone that I feel comfortable sharing this with so I am coming here under the cover of anonymity to exchange my thoughts and seek yours on this subject. Given that: Masturbation is a sin Sex outside of marriage is a sin Engaging in prostitution is a sin As a man I have a natural sex drive I would like help and advice on defeating my sexual desires without committing sin. If I abstain from masturbation, I can refrain from engaging in sexuality for around a period of a week with little difficulty. After that initial 1 week period, it starts to encompass my whole life. I have an erection when I wake up every morning, and I get more throughout the day, at least one an hour and more if I have to interact with any girl under 30. I pray for help in keeping the sexual thoughts away, but it feels like I'm fighting a losing battle and I will relapse at some point no matter what. The longest I've been able to abstain from anything sexual was when I was an atheist and I lasted around a year. After a period of a few months, paradoxically my whole life was concerned with sex, I was not having orgasms however the only thing I had on my mind every day was "I need to find a girl to have sex with" (which never worked), everything was secondary to that. It culminated with me getting cock-teased by a girl I was exchanging with for around a week, getting fed up when I realized I was just getting taken along for a ride then seeking the services of a prostitute, which broke my abstinence and made me lose my virginity, if that concept even exists for a man. I regret the choices I made. After this chapter in my life, I concluded that the healthiest thing to do was to masturbate once a month to get it out of my system and to be able to live my life without being entranced by sex all the time. Eventually I relapsed and was engaging with porn at least 10 times a week, until I found the faith which helped knock it back down to something more reasonable like 2-4 times a month. However, sin is sin and I would like to be fully rid of it. I know that the simplest answer is to marry a girl, whoever that does not appear to be possible for me (it appears that my fate is to be an incel which I've come to terms with), so it seems like I've come to an impasse. I can't masturbate without committing sin, and I don't have a way to relieve myself of those sexual desires legitimately. However, if I don't relieve myself of it, it quickly starts to take over my life (I had begun to call the action of masturbation "satiating the beast" in my head). I don't know what to do. I remember seeing this anon who castrated himself on old 8chan years ago and thought he had lost his mind then, though now every day I start to understand more and more why he wanted to be rid of his sexual desires. Additional question: Why did God give me (and other men) such a strong sex drive and at the same time put me and a lot of other men (40% of men under 30 reported no sex in the past year in a study around 2018 I believe and that was before the corona lockdowns which must have made that number shoot up even more) in an era where it is extremely difficult to rid yourself of this desire without committing sin?

>>11313 It's the other way around. When you revolt against God, you are cucking God and will reap what you sow, which is eternal death, lack of communion with God and hellfire.
>>11305 >>11313 this speaks for itself
>>11313 Why is it ironic? Nothing in the bible says to be a cuckold, it sounds like you just have a low opinion of Christians. Engaging in self destructive sins and debauchery would eventually lead to cuckolding.
>>11313 Christianity names the Jews as the enemy of mankind as well as giving true believers the ability to summon bears to kill foes forty at a time. Sounds like the opposite of cucked to me.
