Not a question, but here is Matt Walsh's (a Christian conservative) documentary about transgenderism. https://vk.com/video8468665_456240549
>>13341 It's good. I watched it and while nothing was particularly new it was interesting seeing reactions in meatspace that are normally only online.
>>13341 The part on John money and Alfred Kinsey was really interesting for Christians, their research is glorified by academia and lead to our new tranny friendly idea of gender and sex, and he was motivated against traditional Christian ideas of gender.

I wouldnt say this is /sin/ but I think its "spiritually unskilfull": im an adult man, almost 27 but I watch beyblade and pretty cure(glitter force in the west)daily and enjoy it a lot. I know a man should be a M A N. vietnam tunnel rat, victorian era coal miner...stuff fellow Men do. how do I quit this vice of childesness? reduce time and use 90 minutes daily? >and no im NOT one of those age reversion perverts..i genuinely enjoy childrend's shows like bakugan,etc.
>>13346 Nothing wrong with it as long as you disassociate it with real life, even victorian-era coalminers enjoyed child games hidden as drinking games down under or splash around in the public baths (and i mean splash, not a slur to gay stuff)
>>13346 my uncle use to watch cartoons and eat cereal every saturday morning. Being a man (or an adult) isnt about taking part in some pre approved "manly" actions, its about who you are. Real men take responsibility and do whats right, no matter the consequences. If you cant do that then it doesnt really matter what other things you do you arent really a man.
>>13346 The idea is that you're supposed to put away childish things as you grow into new adult things. Unfortunately, the adult things have been denied to many men nowadays which is why this happens. Job quality in many metrics has been destroyed and you're now called entitled for asking for the same things your parents took for granted. Community too. There is no community to be a man in for the most part. And as for modern women, the less said the better. All the hallmarks of growing up into manhood are much more difficult to achieve for men today than they have been for most times in history. So it's no wonder that men today cling onto their childhood toys: it's the only thing they have. Nevertheless, don't give up. This guy >>13350 has the right idea. Being a man is more about outlook and carriage than "manly activities." I feel your frustration because I've been in the same boat and am still partially in it. I'm a few years older than you but it's only been in the last few years that I've started feeling like an adult although there are still many things I do not feel like an adult with. What helped the most was getting my own place to live that's more than just a student dorm room. I have my own furniture that's more than just a bed and desk. I have my own car. Do you still live with your parents? I know you said you're 27 but that's pretty normal in this day and age. Don't underestimate the effect that forcing yourself into independence can have. I understand that's not possible for a lot of people due to financial reasons and my situation was actually quite unusual. What would really help would be having a mentor or hero to look up to but that just doesn't happen anymore. Men nowadays have to claw their way up to maturity from scratch. That's what I've discovered. It sucks but that's just the way it is. I've tried to help younger people as much as possible because I know it's going to be shit for them if they get no help at all. It does hurt a little knowing I have to give the help I never got to receive. My main advice would be to not worry about quitting childhood things and worry instead on finding the things that should replace them. Even then there's nothing saying you have to be a boring, joyless drone whose only interests are his work and retirement plan. Be a better man, not less of a kid.
>>13346 Don't know what those shows are, but practically all media is bad in one way or another. 1 Thessalonians 5:22
>>13365 Ill get rid of all my christian media, thank you anon.
>>13365 You're a hypocrite, this imageboard is filled with evil. It even hosts porn. Keep posting bible verses while not actually following them.

do you guys think theres any connection between the prediction of the Millerites and the fact that 1843-1844 was roughly the time period Karl Marx began work on the communist manifesto?

>>13421 ok but what did it mean by: While I, Daniel, was watching the vision and trying to understand it, there stood before me one having the appearance of a man. And I heard the voice of a man calling from between the banks of the Ulai: “Gabriel, explain the vision to this man.” As he came near to where I stood, I was terrified and fell facedown. “Son of man,” he said to me, “ understand that the vision concerns the time of the end. ” While he was speaking with me, I fell into a deep sleep, with my face to the ground. Then he touched me, helped me to my feet, and said, “Behold, I will make known to you what will happen in the latter time of wrath, because it concerns the appointed time of the end. "
Why doesn't god perform miracles or show his existence anymore? All I ask from him is to show he exists, so I can know that all the bs of life is for a reason and there's light at the end of it all, etc.
How common is satanism actually? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEWD1X-47_A
>>13426 its called faith for a reason >>13427 it depends on what you consider satanism. are we talking about Hollywood esque satanism where a bunch of people dressed in black robes slaughter goats and paint pentagrams on the walls or are we talking about actual satanism such as abortion or homosexuality or pedophilia or bestiality or pride, etc?
>>13427 I believe that there is a Spectrum of Satanism, it's not only worshiping Satan, it can mean self godhood or New age beliefs. There are some pastors who say disobeying God or doing evil/relieving yourself of sin is satanic. When you look at our global culture of sin practice you see that the most basic form of satanism could be mainstream
>>13431 >the crazy black "people" man again we know its you "man" buy a better mic and maybe we will here your retarded ramblings
>>13434 So what if Lenon Honor is black, he still has done more to expose the satanic elite than you have. Fuck off with your race idolatry, Christianity is for everyone. Revelation5:11And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 12Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. 13And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. 14And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.
>>13437 What documentary is this from?
>>13443 It's a youtuber drama video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jGECgFAw5M Not a Christian thing but the guy they talk about is, seemingly just a flat out devil worshipper. They exist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wsax3Ylpn6U This is one of those true crime videos about a satanist group. I've never heard anyone else say "I'll see you in Hell" and actually mean it. C.S. Lewis says the doors to Hell are locked from the inside, these people are nuts. Because just like the devil and demons you can know God and still just reject him, you don't want him, because you don't want to give up anything.
>>13375 This. This board is good for nothing but serving as a freak show of mock Christians.
I've decided to disregard what god said about suicide. he doesn't want to give me a way out of my current life, so I'm going to try to find some proper way to end it. Pray to god to show some light to me today. If he doesn't, then it's the end of my relationship with him(if he ever existed in the first place). My life can't get any darker than it is now. There's no way out of it.
How is it fair that I've been the perfect person my whole life, but the world hurts me and prevents me from having a proper life, but meanwhile, my brother is heartless and evil and soulless, but he gets to have a job, family, wealth, health, etc. Why doesn't god even speak to me? I need him now more than ever before in my life, but he isn't there. The world seems cold and mathematical. Not a single "magical" thing, or anything remotely positive, has ever happened to me. I don't think I want to continue.
Just saw some photos of him on facebook. He now even has his own farm. A large family. He travels overseas. He has a pension plan. Etc. But I still have to leach off others in my 30s. What did I do to god to not receive any of his kindness?

>>13579 >>13553 Why be a sadcunt? You could get creative about how to go about life, try changing your demeanor... Anon suicide is a zero-sum game. You can always change your situation by force while alive but once you're dead that's it. You're dead. If you suicide you'll cease to exist, if you're an atheist you already ineherently believe you'll cease to exist, and if you're a waifuist then even Gensokyo carries its own special hells and tribulations for those who take their own life.
Anyone know where I can get a facsimile of a catholic Bible? I like the Geneva but it doesn't include the apocrypha.
>>13579 >the perfect person probably not, there are like 500k mcdonalds needing people RN
>>13612 If you're asking for a Bible like the Geneva Bible, the actual KJV (not the version commonly used today) contains those books. They weren't removed until the end of the 19th century meaning the KJV we have today is not the version authorised for use within England and her colonies. I had a brief look for a pdf version with verse numbers and without the awful typography that results in s's looking like f's and found this, https://ebible.org/pdf/eng-kjv/
i will go to an orthodox church for the first time, any advice to not look like a retard? >also im against icons so if they pray for mary or something like that what should i do?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamsa_Bible https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Lamsa Rubby dubby nonsense. Rubber ducky rubber ducky how are you yes sir yes sir three bags full. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BJMnmSP5ao whhaaaa sick beats! God loves the small things, the little things, 8 people a small nation a small planet. whatever. It's always small. He's using the Ethiopians for holding the Ark of the Covenant. *trumpet sound*
I have heard several conflicting opinions on this and I don't know which is true. Is sex within marriage that is not for procreation a sin? Is it wrong to perform oral on your partner? I am fairly sure that, after reading through Song of Songs, that it is very explicit about oral sex being a part of a healthy sexual relationship, yet I hear anons all the time talking about how leisure sex between a married couple is wrong/evil. Personally I don't believe it is, you are married, Christ gave us sex drive as a gift, and partaking in it with the person you love should not be done with guilt. not that anyone here is ever going to get married
>>13687 > after reading through Song of Songs, that it is very explicit about oral sex being a part of a healthy sexual relationship how'd you come to that conclusion? And also id be weary of things like that which relate to Solomon (assuming this relates to him) considering his behavior in regards to women.
The Aramaic manuscripts were translated from the Greek manuscripts, they say. Ask yourself does that make any sense at all. The Greek Gospels have translation notes like Talitha koum, sometimes leaving original Aramaic by itself from what they were translating from. Very likely the early Aramaic were translated to Greek and were common in Greek long before the first century even finished. Doubtful the Aramaic tradition was kept intact just as even the Greek has not been, the Hebrew has not been. 1% is just such a problem. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aramaic_original_New_Testament_theory Yeah some of this stuff makes sense. Yeaaah what language would John have written Revelation in. I don't know. Why is the oldest Aramaic New Testament piece from the 4th century I don't know. I checked the Aramaic tradition of the Old and New Testament, Genesis 46:27 and Acts 7:14 are still in conflict like a modern Bible. Although the Aramaic version agrees with the Majority Greek Text and in places like Revelation 2:5, Acts 8:37 so on and so on. Anyways I needed to start thinking about THIS now, just another thing I have to look at for my Gospel order listing and other things, that no one but meeee cares about desuwa dessho! I don't even! Tsk tsk tsk. Well really I've already proven Matthew was obliviously written first about 42 AD, we're past that, alright good. My problem is why don't Mark and Luke make any sense then. What were these two cool dudes up to, HUH. Both of them were in Jerusalem in 59 AD which is when I say they probably wrote each of their accounts of Jesus. Mark wanted to shorten Matthew for smelly FILTHY dumb gentiles and Luke was writing for some patron. Again why does Luke need to write for some patron, when Matthew exists, just send him Matthew. IT'S SO INSANE it doesn't make any sense AAAAAAAH! And then what's worse is "the Gospels copied each other at such and such parts." Okay, but, WHY AREN'T THEY COPIED THEN..? Why are small things different? I gave the example of the coin before that's just an obvious example, I mean, what? WHAT? Either Mark and Luke were buffoons who couldn't even copy properly, or what? Well there's a million other things, maybe they really were all independent. In the case of the coin Mark is clearly shortening Matthew and not the other way around and we see that clearly many times and even Jesus' words are changed, "ooh well maybe he said both things or something." noooo... noo.... no. I'll tell you if you asked Luke after he wrote out his Gospel if it was inerrant he would have laughed at you I'm sure along with everyone else for the first few decades until tradition always changes things. The real argument for Divine Inspiration is the fact the New Testament writings are so unique. You can't say "Ah well I get revelation from them sometimes and that means something." No, because you get revelation from other things to don't you? Like at church or, so the fact that a revelation comes to you by a writing doesn't prove the text is divinely inspired, obviously. The argument has to be solely on the unqieness of the Gospels which is another topic. "well I don't need an argument *monkey noise* I just believe." Yeah that's, I'm not, this isn't about that. I'm trying to figure out what happened. We're past the fact that the Gospels are accurate accounts of Jesus, even from a secular point of view you'd have to have issues to believe otherwise. We're moving into the useless territory of the exact year and reason of how the accounts came to be in the way they came to be. But anyways I'll keep at it maybe this Aramaic manuscript stuff will help me understand. I'm pretty happy today because God is really great I love Jesus. I'll be back with answers to all the things no one cares about in another few weeks! See you soon children! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOnGGeNl4O8 Let's all work hard and overcome sins and not turn back. Stop fighting! But rest easy too! The war is over and Jesus is victor, but let us all win our own battles desuwa! We are branches and a branch can produce nothing by itself. Let us produce in the ways of overcoming and learning and preparing for the few times we're truly called into action! Jesus did his ministry in only 3 years after working as a carpenter his life and he finished his Father's work. Come through your trials after testing and be prepared to do whatever it is. Don't give in! Don't give up! I know you won't because you can't the Spirit is a helper and comforter, have you neglected him and not spoken to him! Stop being spicy and start being salty... mmmmm. And use imageboards only a few rare times! Seeing you next week desuwa! "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzbvW4wlDbU >>13687 Yeah sex in marriage is okay, I'm not sure why anyone would have sex not to make children, you don't even have to worry about storing milk in the corner store because fertility rates are dropping like two different sized cannon balls thanks to Bill Gates and his wonderful magic beans. I'm just kidding ho ho ho desuwa nee~ that's not real ho ho ho ho ho. Silly. Absolutely silly. ho ho ho! bum bum bum baa!
>>13692 It's a bit hard to pinpoint online because the poem is constantly switching back and forth between him and her and the online source doesn't seem to indicate where and when that is. so going through my physical NLT Bible I see specifically in 4:12-16 and 5:1-2: >12 (Him) A garden inclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed. >13 Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, with spikenard, >14 Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices: >15 A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon. >16 (Her) Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits. >1 (Him) I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse: I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk: (Her) eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved. This makes it sound as if the vagina is a garden and invites the man to partake of it with his mouth. as for the male, I found this in 2:3: >3 (Her) As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste I think this imagery goes a bit father than simply seeing what I want to see. It is obvious from SoS that we are to love our partner and please them with the bodies God gave to us. They are appealing to each other in every way, made specifically for attraction by the opposite sex, so it seems right that we should partake in what God has made for us to enjoy.
>>13687 i remember seeing this one Christian blog that covered this topic and gave a fairly good argument for why sex in marriage need not nescerarily be only for procreation. unfortunately i can't remember the name of it, but if i do i will make sure to post a link itt.
>>13210 Aren't we all?
What are we supposed to do about the demons(non-whites and women)? Last time God flooded the lands to get rid of them. But He hasn't done anything yet since then, and the demons have flooded the whole world. When will God get rid of them, and what does He expect us to do about them? Does He want us to just distance ourselves from them and endure the suffering?
If even a single prophecy from a "prophet" doesn't come true, then it means they're a false prophet, and god isn't working through them. The same applies to god. If he doesn't show he exists, then he isn't real. If god doesn't show his existence today to all of us, then he doesn't exist, or is much weaker than he advertises.
>>13723 >What are we supposed to do about the demons(non-whites and women)? Why do feds come up with the dumbest things to post >>13724 Romans 1:18-22 you can read to the end of the chapter too if you want
>>13612 > I like the Geneva but it doesn't include the apocrypha. WRONG The Geneva 1560 does aka the version that translates "the" in the NT normally, e.g. "the Christ" instead of the Geneva 1583+ that includes a revision that changed it to "that Christ".
I don't suppose you have any statistics that show atheist or non-religious people having a concentration of pedophilia?
