>>26448 Fair enough. BTW, thanks I was entirely unaware of these claims. I'm not especially following /k/'s doings regarding this closure of anon.cafe, nor their migration plans, so I wasn't following that thread. I'll go there and address that anon directly. >Have a good day, Chobitsu. You too, Anon. :)

Regarding the Shutdown christianjanny Board owner 01/11/2024 (Thu) 22:03:19 ID: bee5a4 No.26309 [Reply]
If you are not already aware, anon.cafe is being shut down on March 15. >>>/meta/16466 Allow me to be as clear as possible: This is NOT the end of /christian/. We have endured shutdowns and deplatforming in the past, and although the board has changed hands many times and lost a lot of users (especially after 8chan went down for good), there are still quite a few users here, and I would hate to lose them again. I would like to keep the community here as long as possible, and from that point transition to the new board. However, I lack the time, experience, and patience to maintain my own imageboard, With that being said, I have made a request on zzzchan.xyz to have /christian/ created. Although it is most likely not necessary, you may add your two cents for why you would like /christian/ added to the site. You may view my post here: https://zzzchan.xyz/meta/thread/137.html#4570 If/When the board is created, I will post more instructions here for how I would like this transition to go. But for now, remain calm, do not panic, and continue posting as usual. We have plenty of time, and I am making sure this transition goes as smoothly as possible.

As of right now we only have three banners. I'd like there to be more, and I'm sure someone somewhere has saved the banners from previous iterations of /christian/, 8chan and otherwise. If you have them, post them here, or feel free to make your own as well! The only requirement is that they are 300x100 and of high quality.

What do you think of this pagan website's arguments against Christianity? Anonymous 02/05/2024 (Mon) 16:42:49 ID: 20a15a No.26406 [Reply]
I bit the low-effort shitpost and followed the link. Sophomoric. That wall of shittext isn't going to throw anyone off the faith in Jesus and his Majesty. The extreme retard might be intimidated or enticed, but the fate of the ignorant is a different theological question altogether. Most Satanists are larping and missing the point. Their obsession with Christianity and their neglect of other religions is actually good publicity. And while emos and vampires may think whatever they want, there is the fact that the entity they follow is indeed dangerous and deserves to be well guarded against. While I am not Orthodox, I admire the teaching of Father Spiridon Bailey concerning the devil. The religion of the antichrist, he teaches, is not coming as any of those clowns. Instead, it will come into the world as fully Christian in appearance, and only then will it exceed the most heinous crimes of paganism. Please consider watching: youtube.com/watch?v=MTTFwZb3o68 May the Lord bless you and keep you, on Jesus' name.
>crazy satanist that's both anti-christian and racist and LITERALLY advocate that gay and homosexuality is good tries to make a point We don't argue with demons, their destiny is to lie and cause us to sin, I won't indulge in their sacrilege
>>26407 >Their obsession with Christianity and their neglect of other religions is actually good publicity. They're Westerners. Criticizing them for being concerned principally with Christianity is a bit like mocking Pakistani Moslems for being concerned principally with Hinduism, isn't it?

Satanists' fixation with Christianity will come as no surprise if you are a Christian, but in terms of secular reasoning, you might have a point. Consider the case of Near Eastern and European paganisms. Unlike pagans, who can always trace themselves to something effectively not Christian, Satanists (and also many Western atheists) cannot even seriously define themselves without Christianity. They actually could, for example, fabricate a seemingly 'endogenous' or 'non Christian' Satanism from Pagan pantheons themselves (mostly made of fallen angels and nephilim anyway), but most seem perfectly fine with being a poor parody of Christianity.

Lent 2024 Anonymous 02/10/2024 (Sat) 18:17:25 No.26422 [Reply]
How are you brothers preparing for the season? Have you already promised to follow Jesus as you had not dared to before? Have you renounced the works of the Evil One to enter the Father's house with Jesus? What's keeping you?

>>26424 You are not supposed to leave something that is already a sin.
Do protestants celebrate Lent? Born and raised Catholic I really have no clue about what they do for most things. Looking online it seems the answer is "it depends" but I'd like some more information than that. I should learn about Protestants in general. What even is a Baptist? I've only posted to this board once like 3 years ago so sorry for not lurking but I don't plan on being a regular. >>26422 Saying a rosary during my commute and also really for real no fapping for good this time.

>>26435 I don't think there's necessarily anything wrong with using a season of prayer and fasting as time to rid oneself of habitual mortal sin, as long as he doesn't intend to take up the habit again as soon as Lent is over.

Christian Cartoon/Media Thread Anonymous 12/11/2023 (Mon) 01:22:01 ID: dab5ea No.26087 [Reply]
Doing research for a project and am traveling across the internet to discuss the Christian cartoons and or media people grew up on. Born in 2000, I was raised on Vegetales and hand me down 1980s-early 90s vhs tapes like Donut Man, Bible Man, Commander Kellie, Davie and Goliath, and Psalty. Watched whatever was on TBN Saturday morning inbetween Kids WB and 4Kids TV, but when I got older I watched TBN less and less as most nineties/early aughts Christian cartoons are just a couple episodes and then they rerun it ad nauseum while secular toons had seasonal progression or frequent new shows coming out. Many people in my church life my age are born again Christians or straight up never heard of anything outside of Vegetales and I was surprised when my former youth pastor who was an 80s kid had zero knowledge of Christian media before the years he started ministering Honestly, in some of my research, a lot of this stuff was just Christian record store distributed or broadcast on local channels. Some of them are sincere >Vegetales and Adventures in Odyssey But most are very subdued, bland, or straight up just vague educational programming just rerunninng on a Christian network

>>26091 >The new ones just look scary, maybe it has to do with a bigger budget and dipping more into uncanny valley, Dunno if you're talking about the mid 2010s Netflix series, or the new stuff that just ended. Personally I feel like Vegetales' run post 2011 has been a pendulum swing, as making a project without big investors means going on a roller coaster. So they had to make "in the house" a show about vague educational values and not the gospel. Wikipedia says the creators haven't been in control since 2004 and stopped being involved altogether in 2021. So there's a reason for the oddness
>>26113 I remember watching the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything movie and being surprised there wasn't a single mention of God or really any moral lesson, just a generic kids action movie. Felt really weird to me that Christianiy wasn't in it at all.
>>26117 Supposedly they thought that the explicit Christian content of the Jonah movie limited the film's market. Ironically, Jonah was the more successful film of the two by a considerable margin.

OP again, I saw this video on /v/ a few months ago and just remembered it. Not really a fan of it, since it feels more like anger towards specific denominations and America in general. But there are some points I do agree with https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COiNrIM9KVE thoughts?

About good christian medias today I suggest Scrooge 2022 It's not the Muppets or the 80s version but really had a real and faithful understanding of the story Here you can tell Scrooge would have all the reasons to hate Christmas as a day, being the day of great losses and personal tragedies But with love and faith from the 3 Spirits and his surviving family he manages to realize life is a blessing and grace and shouldn't be wasted

Prayer to St. Valentine Dear Saint and glorious martyr, Teach us to love unselfishly and to find great joy in giving. Enable all true lovers to bring out the best in each other. Let them love each other in God and in God in each other.
According to the legend he made a blind girl able to see again, are there other miracles said to be by him?

Didn't see one active, so I decided to make one. Reply with your prayer requests and I will include them in my daily prayers and when I go to Mass. Other anons are encouraged to do the same.

if somebody is around, please pray that my grandma's health gets better and she's not in pain anymore, and also that i make peace with my girlfriend and we can get married soon. thank you anons!!
>>26426 Prayed for your Grammy, Anon.
I am praying for God to add some innocent ignorance back into my life. I broke the Ecclesiastes commandment to not be overwise. It happened somewhere in my twenties when I decided to give secular wisdom a try at answering life's mysteries. And so I spent a not insignificant time during that decade reading any historical, political, psychological, sociological, and philosophical work that I deemed interesting. But all I got was more questions than answers. And what answers I found are unsatisfying, even if they are true (i.e. history is cyclical, and there is no new thing under the sun.) Moreover being too smart also led to me trying my hand in exercising myself in great things, and matters too high for me, which is contrary to the commandment. This all gives me feelings of alienation from all other people. Even from people which appear to have my welfare in mind. It also feels like I've been unwittingly optimizing fun out of my life. And that a part of my daily struggles with depression and anxiety stem from going against the Lord's word on these matters of wisdom.
>>26428 May God bless you both for you wisdom in coming to your right senses, and for endeavoring to get back on the right path. Godspeed, Anon. :)

Bible progression thread Anonymous 04/24/2023 (Mon) 17:28:11 ID: fc9443 No.24554 [Reply]
Post in this thread to share your current Bible reading progress and to be accountable before others in your study of scripture. I have just finished Genesis, Matthew, and Mark.

>>25222 I have finished Acts.
I am reading Revelation and am halfway through.
>>25234 >If any anons are in doubt about a translation being perverted by current year degeneracy read Revelations 3:9 and compare it to the KJV text. BASED >Also read 2:12-13 then look up where Pergamon was. Then check the origins of the Khazarian empire. It explains everything going on in the West today. ...How did I never realize KHAZARIA WAS IN REVELATION?!? Come to think of it, it does mention Gog and Magog, doesn't it. Magog would be Turkic-Mongolic tribes (like the Khazar Turks), and it says in Revelation 20:8 that after 1000 years, the enemy will "go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle." >1000 years That sounds about right when the MONGOLS drove out the KHAZARians out of European Russia (where Khazaria once stood).

>>26408 To be honest, I kind of have the four Gospels memorized (though not entirely), and I think I finished Acts months ago. I think I'm on Romans, so I guess I'll just start from the beginning (of Romans). But then, I may have finished that book too. Mike Winger has a great series on the book of Romans.
Anybody got tips for reading the Bible in Classical Greek?
