I can't remember the name of the guy who wrote the book Logos Rising, but I think that he has a clear explanation for this.

I haven't read the book, but I've listened to several interviews where he talks about it.

The basic idea is that ancient Greek philosophers were looking for a unifying force for the universe and eventually settled on the idea of Logos. Logos translates to "word" in English, but the meaning of the Greek is far richer. Logos is the idea of order, logic, goodness, stability, etc.

The gospel of John begins by claiming Jesus is the Logos.

By rejecting Jesus, the Logos, people must choose the only other option: anti-Logos. We see the results of anti-Logos all around us today as our world has embraced it: hatred, dishonesty, gender confusion, greed, chaos.

I think the beginning of the awakening process is the search for Logos. Eventually some realize who the Logos really is.

If you haven't found the Logos yet, seek and you will find!

The book is a long slough, but fascinating if you keep your eyes open. All from a very Catholic position, both historically and spiritually.

Forthelead 6 points ago +6 / -0

From what he said, I thought it might be interesting to read sometime. I don't agree with everything he says (e.g. I'm not RC), but I think his presentation of Logos / anti-Logos is correct and a good explanation of what is going on in the world today.

LetsGoFishing 2 points ago +2 / -0

He speaks a lot about the subversion of the RCC, but about many other issues as well. You don't have to agree with everything a writer says, in fact, it is best you do not and do further research on your own.

You may think you rejected God but He won’t let you reject Him. Jesus will leave the 99 to bring back the one. God has gifted you with salvation because of your faith fren.

polish_snausage 2 points ago +2 / -0

Me too. Not rejected exactly, but angry, disappointed and alone when my Mom died.

But yet he still gave me blessings and teachings and I'm back. I don't understand everything, but know now that I don't need to.

God Wins and when he's ready he'll come for me and then I will have the answers I seek.

I still struggle forgiving myself but I thank the lord for his mercy. His forgiveness is all I need. Life has been very dark for me, and I thank God, because it will only make the light of heaven even brighter.

CupOfJoJo 10 points ago +10 / -0

I too had a short stint with satanism years ago. I felt the same way, about struggling to forgive myself, and as well as feeling like I wasn't worthy of God's love. Months ago my Bible fell and it landed on Isaiah 30. Honestly Isaiah 30:15-23 hit home with me personally in relation to the aforementioned things.

Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. Acts 17:11 NIV

To be honest, I'm not even sure if what I now know world even be called Christianity anymore. I suppose technically it is, but it's so different from what mainstream churches teach that I'd be kicked out to the street if I spoke things I now know in a church.

ie: Bill Donahue

polish_snausage 1 point ago +1 / -0

I was raised Catholic, and don't trust any religion. I thought that made me a sinner

I have faith in Jesus Christ, but seeing the evil of religion and being the "only one" seeing things that way made me think Jesus was not happy with me. So I laid low, didn't pray much because I felt I didn't deserve to.

I love this place and the God loving Patriots I've come across here and in my life that belonged to no church and showed it's ok to only belong to Jesus Christ.

Christ is the Son Of God. God is in us just like he was in Jesus. He breathed life into us and therefore we are a part of Him.

Be more specific.

Define 'Christ' etymologically

polish_snausage 1 point ago +1 / -0

Christ is a title. There was more than Jesus with that title?!

It means he who talks directly to God. I talk directly to God. I'm am a sheep; I am not a Christ

The title given to Jesus? The anointed one? The deliverer & Healer

Mad_Maximo 20 points ago +20 / -0

I have said this before, been a huge liberal most my adult life. Not as extreme as you associate with "liberal" now, but had you basic assumptions about me down to a tee. Tree-hugging, anti-war, anti-establishment, affordable healthcare and so on. Was pretty hippie-dippy too, believed in the energies of Mother Nature over all else.

I never swayed from my policies though; but time proved that wasn't progressive enough. Felt alienated, then I discovered one thing that flipped a Switch for me. Trump's movements on trafficking. I absolutely hate, with a burning passion, pedophiles. It got me to dig deeper, eventually led to the Q stuff, the crazy bits.

Over time I orbited around some forums discussing it til I was led to TDW. With everything I began to question what my allegiances to the spiritual really meant.

In August, I began praying. Prayed in a way it felt personal, and over time I started having more calm moments in my life. Everything is still turned to 11, but there is some solstice to be had.

RiverWolf 5 points ago +5 / -0

Yep, Trump vs pedophiles has been an eye opener for many. So glad to hear your journey brought you to God in prayer, as he alone gives true peace. He loves each of us beyond our capacity to comprehend.

gobby 1 point ago +1 / -0

"God, I don't know if you exist. I never believed you did. But if you do, I want to know the truth. Please reveal yourself to me." A simple prayer like that, said with humbleness and with zero mockery will get your answer.

Meditate more. Listen to Sadhguru. Check out kundaliniandcelltowers.com . Ignore people who claim to be in touch with their chakras and shit, those of us in the know do not bother to boast about such pointlessly simple things. Do not overthink astrology or crystals. Do not overthink extraterrestrials or anything for that matter. Get in touch with yourself. Practice critical thinking and trust no one.

You'll get that dial down to a comfy 6 or 7 soon enough brother.

👋🏻 Recovering liberal Oregonian who lived in San Fran for 3 years - I kept the veganism but left behind the demons. And I fell back into the arms of my beautiful Jesus Christ, savior and father. I cleaned up my act, moved to a red state, married the love of my life (after feeding him the red pill in 2016) and now we have 1 beautiful little girl and a handsome boy on the way. I am gunna toxic masculine the shit out of that based baby boy of mine. Heck yeah.

Don’t worry about my diet Im as healthy as a horse 🐴 been healthy eating this way for 5-6 years and husband going on 11 years. Libs hijacked the vegan diet and zombified it a bit but I promise its not that taboo and a lot of folks can flourish well on a plant based diet despite propaganda on both sides. I don’t particularly plan on debating anyone over the choice, but I can confirm my walk with Christ has been wonderful and I feel great eating this way. Not judging anyone who eats meat, nor do I consume the fake plant meats which Ive read may contain stem cells gross. But rest assured I get every nutrient I need - pills or not! God bless you too.

Anosha 4 points ago +4 / -0

Not expecting a reply, but if you want strong boys and girls I insist that you need to feed them a well-rounded diet. Gotta keep your awakening going some more to get where you want to go, fren. I have a patriot in my circle who is sticking to veganism and is just not as resilient to what the DS is doing. But that’s a valid choice for adults. However, please think twice before taking good food away from your children.

AngelCole 4 points ago +4 / -0

🥰 Beautiful, so happy for you. I love my boys with every fiber in me. I was never blessed with a daughter but would have loved to be. God really blesses us with unbelievable love for our children. Those who never have children miss out on that wonderful reciprocal love.

TDanonDJTJR2024 3 points ago +4 / -1

Grow a little. I was a vegan for 2 years and then longer but on and on/off basis. Started with the horrific realization that humanity is little more than organized vampires with the whole world captive to our murderous desire. Ended with the realization that ignoring this INSTINCT, yes instinct, only made me a MISERABLE vampire and did not make me any less a vampire. There are no vegan apes, pretty much every sort of monkey will kill and eat things, even enemies of their own species given half a chance. Gorillas in the mist fairytales are idealistic at best, every single monkey is fucking brutal as shit, the smarter the more dangerous. The human is the ultimate vampire, the coldest most honed killer on the face of planet, the height of terrifying, the ultimate Scary Thing In The Dark.

/endrant

So, throughout my excursions with DMT I encountered some aliens that 'encouraged'(THREATENED) me to return to my vegan lifestyle. After about a year I decided I wasn't scared anymore and went back to eating meat. Lo and behold I didn't even fall down dead!

The fake meat is like really really bad for you so don't eat that. Also a good medium-rare steak every now and then does a body good. You don't have to go with the American thing, Meat At Every Meal, but just as it helps various animals get a nice shiny coat it does a body good to get some good old fashioned murder in your system.

Eating is not sin, just as sex is not sin, just as wealth is not sin. As long as you have that Healthy Detachment and awareness of all things God you should be pretty much good.

I recommend teaching your boys (specifically) how to shoot, how to use ropes (knots), start a camp fire, use a compass and a map, love the outdoors (find something he loves and feed it), and socialize him with both girls and outgoing boys. Go camping, overlanding, hunting, hiking, etc.

If he's not good at sports, help him find something masculine and to get physical exercise to build muscle starting in Junior High. Feed him lots of meat. Help him build a bulletproof confidence, while spending time helping people less fortunate (so he develops healthy empathy, instead of insecurity). Raising kids is a full-time job also.

my 2 cents, blessings to you.

These are the Christian Youtubers I follow. The hashtags can be put in the YouTube search bar to go to their channels.

Particularly, the first three focus on Christian daily life and improvement, but all of these channels are about receiving words from the Lord that 45 will be back soon. Other words of theirs have already been fulfilled, but they're very godly people to check out.

ElijahStreams hosts these people and could be the sole youtuber to follow as the other channels regularly appear on here. I'd definitely subscribe to the first 3 and ElijahStreams.

Thanks, I will check her out.. Dolly Parton has been teeming up with young country gospel artists lately,, going back to her roots. Check out her song with Zach Williams if you don't know it, it made my soul shine. She's also worked with Hank Williams grand son, but I do not now any of that, there is no relation to Zach afaik.

Dolly's song with Zach Williams:

https://youtu.be/37wV6D49iEY

And also check out his solo stuff, the show he did at a Georgia state prison, it is especially moving. He has a story of his own "rescue story" of being saved:

https://youtu.be/bDnA_coA168

The testimonies in the comments are powerful as well.

I love her, her voice is as real and true as her soul. Let me know what you think of Williams as well. I have never listened to' Christian" musi, as it is mostly garbage that intentionally avoids Christ and his messages.The resurgence of Christian music that is vocally Christ-based gives me hope.

I believe you will be inspired, amazing voice and message. Dolly is a beautiful child of God, a blessing to this world. She did go Hollywood to make a large career, avoiding the satanic aspects I believe, and could do so because of her huge talent. believe in her older years, she is using her clout to bring gospel music back to Jesus, where it has not been for decades.

Psalm 5:11

But let all who take refuge in You be glad, Let them ever sing for joy; And may You shelter them, That those who love Your name may exult in You.

Psalm 32:11

Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones; And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.

Singing for the Lord is the most pure form of music.

polish_snausage 2 points ago +2 / -0

I came to a belief in a higher power when I got sober many years ago, it gradually grew in me. I came to see that my life had been a total disaster and that I had been serving other spirits. So I was already of a spiritual nature when I first found Q and was receptive to the spiritual side of this phenomenon and movement.

TDanonDJTJR2024 5 points ago +5 / -0

God's power is everywhere. Continue in your faith. It really is quite insane how very real, how very relevant, how very in-your-face it all is. I can't even begin to describe, though I can answer questions. There once was a time when I did not believe God surely existed. Now I am not sure if anything exists OTHER than God, I am so very surrounded by His power, His love, and His words.

My exposure to VOAT and then GAW has led me to a growing faith in the following 'formula': The Heavenly Father's only Begotten Son>Jehovah>Christ Jesus, the Alpha and Omega. The God the prophets were inspired by fulfilled those prophecies at Gethsemane and Golgotha. "See woman, I have made all things new"; of course He stilled the waters.. The saga continues.

I am not worthy of God and His Grace

MAGULQ 15 points ago +15 / -0

None of us are actually "worthy", that's why it's called "grace"(undeserved or unearned forgiveness). Don't give up on yourself, God hasn't.

"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23) "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)

You are inseparable from God. Your body soul and mind created by Him. Meaningless and without form save for His power. There is no Mistake, there are only Lessons.

Look what you said, for your words themselves form a riddle from God to You, and I will provide the answer.

"I am not worthy of God and His grace."

That is,

"I AM(Yah-Weh); not worthy of God and His grace."

Now how can that be, that Yahweh would not be worthy of God and His grace?

Yet it is true. How can one be 'worthy' of that which has been theirs from the beginning of time? Worthy of your calling and task?

It is not up to you to be 'worthy.' No one can be worthy and deserving of infinite honor, power, glory, and might.

And yet it is yours. The weight of sin is irrelevant. It is nothing, it is less than nothing, it is without existence in comparison to the might of God.

We are One with God. We are His. We are Chosen. He has sanctified us and he has saved us, throughout all the ages and outside of time and matter.

You are not here to live a blameless and perfect life You are here to learn and to grow.

Avoiding "conspiracy theories" is nothing more than pretending evil doesn't exist. 

I sure never thought about it like this until you'd pointed it out, but that is spot on. Most people who try to avoid the issue are either too naïve or too trusting in the veil that hides the worst kinds of evil.

1
LetsGoFishing 1 point ago +1 / -0

There is no running tab of what you have good ✅ bad. Do not let that consume you. Try to walk in the footsteps of Christ daily, but know that you will sin, we all do, but repent and know that God forgives his children, always, in his unlimited mercy. Have FAITH and you will be saved.

It probably goes without saying but you want to confess that Jesus died for your sins and repent from them. Glory to God!

IntegrityCritical 5 points ago +5 / -0

A refresher from church:

No human is able to follow the 10 commandments perfectly. That is why God designed a solution to pay for our sin. He is Jesus, who died and paid for our sin and then rose from the dead showing that He conquered both death and sin and proving He is God.

No one is going to be just fine trying to follow the law and be a good person without getting that pesky sin problem taken care of. Jesus and accepting His grace is the only way.

1
gobby 1 point ago +1 / -0

Exactly. The law, the 'commandments' only existed to serve the purpose of showing the Jews that they couldn't possibly keep them and that they needed a savior. How ironic that so many rejected Him when he showed up.

3
DaesDaemar 3 points ago +3 / -0

Evil, Biblically speaking, is rebellion from God. The spectrum you see is God vs satan (a fallen high-level cherub (kind of angel) that is essentially trying a coup.). God gave us all free will, and Evil is actively acting out the opposite of what God wants for us, and the world. This rebellion is only active for a time, and then satan will be judged and all those who do not receive the salvation from sin through Jesus Christ will go with him.

3
gobby 3 points ago +3 / -0

Being raised in a religious household doesn't mean you were ever a Christian. If you were, you are finding your way back. If you never were, consider praying this simple little prayer (in your own words.) "God, I don't know what I believe. I wasn't sure you were real, but now I wonder. I just want to know the truth. Lord, if you are real, please reveal yourself to me." The only caveat is to be sincere; no mocking, no flippancy. Just humble yourself and ask the God of all creation to reveal Himself to you. You'll get your answer. God bless.

There is a book called “Christ the Eternal Tao”. I recommend it strongly.

0
TDanonDJTJR2024 0 points ago +1 / -1

Meh. Taoism close enough but it's not quite on the mark. Reality is a shade more optimistic than Taoists would have you believe. We ARE the terrifying force dominating this planet and we are eternal and we are completely separate from these bodies we enjoy. Taoism has people more stuck inside of their bodies and stranded in the universe in general, with a very nonspecific existence outside of the universe. They are NOT off the mark. They speak truth. But there is much to know that they either do not acknowledge, do not know, or choose to ignore.

TrumpTrollMaster 2 points ago +4 / -2

To each's own.

Manmade interpretation of God is man-made.

A good heart is the foundation of being closer to God.

2
FractalizingIron 2 points ago +3 / -1

Well said.

Fren, we have entered the era where religion is fading away, and people are connecting directly to God through direct relationship.

Religion was only ever intended to bring us to the place where we can build the real and living relationship with the Divine. But each of us here stands on the shoulders of those that came before us. We have inherited a foundation that is greater than we know.

Christians today can have a much closer and more intimate relationship with Christ and God than they could one hundred or two hundred years ago.

While I affirm that Christ is the ultimate doorway through which all can be reunited perfectly with the Father, I also know that each religion, faith, and practice that is rooted in goodness and mobilized by "a good heart" is simply a variation on the primary theme of reuniting with the Creator.

In other words, they are brothers & sisters, not enemies and not competitors, if we could but understand.

The realization of course meant that I had to admit to myself that I have been lied to most of my life, and that I fell for those lies. Acceptance was easy though, as I will use what I have learned to carry on, and not dwell on the past.

Once I said conversationally “God’s never spoken to me.” This wacky old guy, who we all knew was a convert to LDS ffs, said matter of factly “Have you asked?” So I did. Lots of stuff happened. Two years later I received the Sacrament of Chrismation in the Orthodox Faith. (I do like those hats) Im an utterly unlikely candidate for such a thing. That’s their specialty. (Think of Putin)

I don’t know how to DM you on this platform so I’ll reply publicly. I admire your courage to emigrate to Rus. It can’t be easy. I’d follow Him anywhere also, but seem to have been placed as needed. We all get our cup.

Were you born Orthodox? Did you learn Russian before emigrating? Have you been accepted there?

I’m not envious, of course, as I’m “sitting in Daddy’s lap” right where I am, but I wish you joy and peace. I’m interested how you did it, and how it goes now. Please message me privately if you know how to do it. Sorry I don’t.

I was an atheist when I was a teen. I believe it was repressed anger that made me resist Jesus.

When I was in college, a friend mentioned being a christian, and I told her that I didn’t believe in God. She asked me if I was angry about some things that happened to me when I was younger?

I thought about it, and it struck me that I was angry. She told me how God can truly set me free from that anger. I began learning the Word and searching for a Church. That was over 20 years ago. Thanks to her.

I am just trying to be a better person, too many traps to fall into I find if you go full on Christian. What does that even mean? To me it means attending a church and pushing and policing others, that to me is fake big church that achieves nothing but isolation. I think privately trying to become a better person through your own personal relationship is the goal, too many of you emulate the very big church police attitude that pushes people away from Jesus because they want to get away from big church. I consider attending church the same way I consider seeing a shrink, I like the idea of it but I cannot trust any of them.

Church is also full of sinners who have become saints who still struggle with sin and are imperfect. I would agree that the goal is getting to know Christ personally, but He designed the church for believers to rub shoulders with one another while doing life (sharpen iron with iron).

I am struggling with being disenchanted with church too right now, but I know from past experience, the wrong thing is to go it alone.

Find a small church preaching the Word and forsaking worldly wisdom. I know of no perfect church and these times are even more challenging, but the real true gospel is uniting to believers and as a part of relationship with Jesus, it is very important to be a part of an active church.

gobby 1 point ago +1 / -0

What is being a 'better person?' What is good enough? Jesus said nobody is good.

"God, if you really do exist, I want to know you. I want to know the truth. Please, reveal yourself to me." A simple little prayer like that is all it takes as long as you humble yourself and pray sincerely. No mocking. And as for disliking big churches, you know, there are plenty of small ones out there. Many more than the big ones, even. God bless.

I don't go to church as it's too formal for me. I grew up in church and that laid the foundation for my relationship with the Lord. I speak to him almost daily. Ask for things I/we need and thank for what I've received and most importantly, I ask for forgiveness.

I like to follow this board for the occasional hopium dose and interesting perspective on things you don't get on PDW. We may not win the battle for our country, we may never win again. But I am content Bc God has the final say and his is the final kingdom. Vengeance is the lords. All that keeps me going sometimes. Makes me happy that others found their faith here too. God bless

Darwyn 2 points ago +2 / -0

I'm an atheists and I seriously doubt anything anyone said here would change my mind. However I've been an atheists my entire life(50) even though I've lived in one part or another of GA my entire life. Living in the buckle of the bible belt I've heard it all. I grew up Baptist then Mormon till about 14-15 and I quit church for good.

I mention this because I have a theory that might shed some light if you are perhaps a converted leftist. Socialism/Communism is not an atheistic form of government. Its not secular in any way. Its actually a theocracy. Members of the Church of Communism worship the government itself like a god. The halls of government are their churches. The halls of education are their temples.

In fact much like Islam I would go so far as to say that it thoroughly breaks the 1st Amendment. It is impossible to separate church from state when dealing with the religion of Communism. That is the problem we have now. These lunatics have convinced the USA that the absence of a religious god is the default state of separation of church and state. They have removed prayer, 10 commandments, statues, etc... They fail to mention that they are replacing them with a worship of authority and a worship of the government itself as though its a god.

I'm all for getting rid of god but to do so without replacing the role it fills in society and the mental well being of millions of people is fool hearty and unhealthy. The communist would replace those functions with belief that the government will solve all your problems for you all you have to do is give up control/obey. Which is obviously a fools errand because once you give up control leaders at the top instantly become corrupt etc etc. Or at least then they show their true colors.

So without knowing your story I would just say look at how/why you considered yourself an atheist. You might find that you never one and in truth you just switched from worshiping the government/authority to worshiping god. I'm not trying to judge you. Just pointing out that in truth there are still very few true atheists in this world. Most people are agnostic and don't even realize the difference.

Tons of these leftists believe themselves to be atheists when in reality they are some of the worst religious zealots around. They believe with all their heart and soul the government is all powerful, all knowing, and will solve all their problems if they just believe hard enough. That's why they seem like crazed lunatics.

"God, I have never believed you exist. Why should I? It's pretty obvious there is no such thing as a Supreme Being who created the universe and everything in it. But, I know enough to know that I don't know everything. And I do like truth. So just in case you do exist, I want to know, because I want to know the truth. God, if you do exist, please reveal yourself to me." A simple prayer like that, in your own words, and said humbly and sincerely will get you the answer you crave. God bless.

I was raised as a Christian and believed for awhile until roughly the end of middle school. I considered myself an atheist for a few year then an agnostic and now I consider myself a Christian again now because of tga but because of trump. Trumps talk of Christian and American values lining inspired me to look inward at myself and inspired me to read scripture again. I started to find scripture that actually spoke to me and made sense of what was going on in the world. Oddly enough I sat down with my grandparents a few months ago and my grandma told me that she got a prayer group to pray for me awhile ago and asked for God to reach out to me in a way that I would understand and would listen. Right around that time Is also when I started to hop on the trump train and stopped being a Bernie bro.

UNPOPULAR OPINION TIME

I was actively trying to get back to Christ but I've had the opposite experience here at GAW. The more I talk to Christians here the more I remember why I stopped going to Church to begin with. The reason why is because I regularly speak to Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Vegans, and a bunch of other people fervently involved in their own beliefs and I don't see any difference. 90% of society is willing to drink the kool-aid, this has always been the case. There is no difference in the quality of rationale used to justify the belief in God between any of the major world religions. I mean Q even mentions in one of his posts where he questions the existence of Satan. To me, the Cabals rituals and practices are no different than any other religion which seeks to control and not liberate. To me, and I have to keep saying that because people are so easily triggered when talking about God, there are no such things as demons or angels. There are just monsters or heroes that are human. I align with the people here at GAW on almost every matter like politics, economics, social conservatism, nationalism, etc etc but not on God, and that's fine since after this is all over you'll just go back to casting judgements on me and praying for my soul while I do everything the good book says a person should do except surrendering to their version of God.

Does that mean I'm anti-Christian? No, not at all. I support anyone pursuing God and higher truths and I think it's fantastic. I just think it's hilarious how people think one needs their God and not anyone else's. I believe Christians for the most part are great people. Sure you get Bible thumpers but my experience has been Christians are just normal people who want to be a part of a community. Realistically though, has Christianity stopped any of today's degeneracy? No. Because, again I know this is triggering so I preface this, IN MY OPINION, it is a system devised by men that worked for its time period but will fail miserably in providing meaning in the modern technological world.

So let's think about a post Great Awakening world. You really think everyone is going to suddenly be religious? Sure you could hypothesize that minus the cabals interference people would be, but I suspect history will repeat itself and a new age of Reason will begin. Philosophy will once again flourish and we can begin solving the complex problems humanity will face in the future. There is no avoiding the inevitable collapse of all Abrahamic faiths.

I was an atheist 4-6 years ago. Now I'm spiritual, but claim no religion. Something great is happening around us.

It appears an evil force has embedded itself into every office, every authority, every position of power inside human society.

So how can any of us trust any particular religion? Blind faith looks like the same scam the cabal is pulling with their poison jab.

Something is causing evil to over extend itself. Every attack coming from the cabal is redirected into waking more souls to the war taking place. I believe in something good, and it's helping us. Is it God or Jesus or aliens or entities outside of time? I don't know. My mind is open to any of the possibilities.

gobby 1 point ago +1 / -0

It's God. And what is with the 'blind faith' comment? I hear people say that and it sounds so stupid. Who says faith is blind? Grab a clue. Get to actually KNOW God. It's possible. He designed it that way. Why do you think all these people are talking about their "EXPERIENCES" with God? Because, you know, they actually have experiential knowledge of God. That's quite different than blind faith.

If you honestly want to know the truth .. if you're ready for the ultimate red pill, say a simple prayer along these lines, "God, I don't know if you exist. I never believed in you, but I want to know the truth. So if you are real, I want to know that. Please reveal yourself to me." Just be sincere, no mocking. Just humble yourself and call out to the God of all creation and you WILL get your answer. God bless.

I am Gnostic. What that means... is very very complicated and is completely irrelevant to anyone other than another Gnostic. I know shit. I have seen. I am beyond faith, I have evolved past it. That being said. Christ is Lord of all. Believe and trust in Jesus, follow Him and be saved. Many are the paths to destruction. Narrow is the way to the Light. We live in a terrifically complicated, mathematical, careening fishbowl of a universe. If you involve yourself in the intricacies of the universe and wish to discover the intimate and horrible truths of the universe, if you are a staunch atheist who wishes to find every answer, the answers are available. You can chase the road of the intellectual and you can find what you are looking for. But when you find those answers and you are a beaten, broken, horrified shadow of a person, you will wish you had merely trusted in God and followed the Way instead of demanding every answer for yourself. Faith is the more beautiful, easier road to Paradise.

I prefer the easy way, it's much more fun, peaceful and satisfying. You don't have to give up intellect in order to follow Jesus. The Holy Spirit can reveal wisdom you can't get through the intellect, which can be easily misguided by leaning on incomplete truths.

Be careful about works-based theology (did I do good enough? Am I sinning too much? Can I lose my salvation?)

The Bible declares the good works of men as pleasing to God as if they were soiled rags (literally menstrual rags).

Accepting Jesus as Lord of your life and believing in His Resurrection ensures your place in heaven. The reason Christians sin less (or should sin less), is because they understand that Jesus has paid the penalty for their sin with His own death on a cross. Continuing to sin runs up the bill even higher, and you wouldn't want to do that to someone who's essentially paid the ransom for your eternal soul.

Additionally, if you follow God's commandments, you'll avoid a great many pitfalls in life. Ex. You're less likely to catch STDs if you only have sex with your spouse.

Faith Without Works Is Dead [James 2:14-26]

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without [a]your works, and I will show you my faith by [b]my works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is [c]dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made [d]perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was [e]accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

Right. This means that if you have real faith, you will feel an obligation to do the work Jesus would want you to do.

If you say you have faith, but don't do the work, then did you really have faith to begin with?

It is faith that saves, and a consequence of true faith is works. It is not the works that save, because we can see a lot of people without faith do good works, and they definitely will not be saved without faith in Jesus.

In my view, Catholics can still meet the requirements for salvation, which the Apostle Paul and Silas stated in the book of Acts:

Then he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

Acts 16:30‭-‬31 ESV

Rom2:13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

Rom2:14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:

Rom2:15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

In short, all are welcome in the kingdom of heaven. At least, all those who live by the laws laid down by our creator. The title of your religious practice is inconsequential. All that matters is what's in your heart.

Actually most of the apostles went on missionary travels, with some staying or martyred (eg St Thomas in India). St Peter certainly lived a number of years in Rome and was the first bishop there, before being martyred. You will never guess where he was buried. :). There is a fascinating book called The Bones of St Peter, by Walsh I believe. Reads like a dectective story and with surprise ending.

“Welcome to the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, an Archdiocese of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East. We trace our roots to first century Antioch, the city in which the disciples of Jesus Christ were first called Christians.

“Sometimes called the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Orthodox Church is the first Christian Church, the Church founded by the Lord Jesus Christ and described in the pages of the New Testament. Her history can be traced in unbroken continuity all the way back to Christ and His Twelve Apostles. For twenty centuries, she has continued in her undiminished and unaltered faith and practice. Today her apostolic doctrine, worship and structure remain intact. The Orthodox Church maintains that the Church is the living Body of Jesus Christ. 

“The Church of Antioch was established by the Apostles Paul and Barnabas in 42 A.D., with St. Peter serving for the next eight years as its first prelate. The Church of Antioch is one of the five ancient Patriarchates of the Christian Church, along with Alexandria, Constantinople, Jerusalem, and Rome. We are in full communion with our brothers and sisters in various other Orthodox Christian jurisdictions, such as the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and the Orthodox Church in America. Together we work to nurture the Orthodox Christians of this land—whether immigrants or native-born, cradle Orthodox, or converts—and to bring America to the ancient Orthodox Christian Faith.”

Caring about things having Pagan origins is kinda overrated. See Paul's words concerning food sacrificed to idols. It's okay to feel that way, but let your kids have their damn Christmas presents even if the origins of the holiday are more or less married to the similar pagan thing.

Orthodox Christian here. NO. The nimbus is ancient and depicts the divine light. This is hidden from us in our day-to-day but is spiritual reality. It was shown to the disciples at Mount Tabor, for example. But Jesus Christ is the Light and the Life. It is truth that is being depicted in holy icons, not random pagan traditions. That nimbus points to Jesus Christ and nowhere else.

(Orthodox Christianity included Rome for 1000 years before they started changing their faith and left the other Churches, which all stayed together and united in confessing the same Faith, and icons depicting saints with nimbuses is ancient practice right back to the beginning of Christianity, so that is why I am answering from an Orthodox perspective when you said Catholic.)
