Hello, this thread is for any suggestions or complaints about the moderation. You can also use this as a way to contact the moderation rather than posting elsewhere in the board and simply hoping I will see it.

Use that link to see what I have been doing and of course feel free to say something if you have concerns.

If you need to contact me outside the board: LoveJesus@8chan.co

Hello, there is hentai posted here and its been there for a month. >>17288

Basically an anime girl in a translucent dress being penetrated. I'm just confused because I found this board today, and it seems strange to have hentai in the catalog of a christian board.

Exodus 20

4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

>I love how you don’t even address the points I made, you bad-willed liar

You have no points. Again, Abraham did not practice idolatry, so you have no argument.

>If I ripped up a picture of your mother, are you retarded enough to say that I actually ripped your mother up, or am I showing contempt for your mother?

Is my mother an object of faith? Does my mother bestow spiritual gifts? Do I pray to my mother? Do I prostrate myself to the image of my mother? The analogy is completely irrelevant

>What you do to a representation of a person shows your disposition towards that person

Yes, nobody worships the image of one whom they do not worship.

>So what that means is that YOU have to prove that bowing is intrinsically an act of divine worship.

I don't have to prove that at all, because I never said that, you sophist. There is a clear visceral distinction between bowing before one's earthly lord to signify obedience and loyalty, and going up to the statue of someone who you pray to, who you burn incense to, who you rely on in your spiritual life to pray before and prostrate towards. Are you so daft you cannot tell the difference? That's the thing, you're not that daft, you viscerally know in your heart that it is idolatrous worship but as you exchange the truth of God for a lie you supress that knowledge of God in your heart.

>I bought up Abraham because he is clearly depicted as bowing towards the angels

A sign of respect and hospitality. Not even close to a parallel to the image above.

>Now, I would appreciate it if you actually addressed the points I’m making

I did, you chose to ignore it entirely. Let us say for a moment this is indeed a real parallel to the image. Does that then have any bearing on the question of whether it is idolatry? No. At best, you would have proven Abraham also practiced idolatry, and therefore it is not a vile sin.

What the fuck are you talking about? Your mother can’t be an “object of faith”, dumbass. An object of faith would be something that you would have to believe in via faith. Also, what difference does it make? As long as you recognize that your mother isn’t a deity, so what?

>doesn’t my mother bestow spiritual gifts?

Depends on what you mean by “bestow spiritual gifts”. Is it gifts that come from the saint themselves or is it a gift that the saints received from God?

>Do I pray to my mother?

Oh boy, here we go with this retarded shit again. How many times do people have to tell you that Marian prayers, and saintly intercession in general, are petitions for the saints to INTERCEDE on their behalf?? In other words, people are asking the saints to pray for them, dumbass. People aren’t praying to the saints as if they were deities. Just look up the Hail Mary if you don’t believe me.

>Do I prostrate myself to the image of my mother?

Fuck if I know. Do you wipe your ass with the image of your mother? AGAIN, what you do to an image shows your disposition towards the image.

>The analogy is irrelevant

Nah, you’re just completely missing the point while trying to make it seem like I don’t know what I’m talking about.

You know, if you were in your tent, and you were worshipping an idol of Baal, you wouldn't be able to get away with it by saying "it's ok Moses, I recognize it isn't a deity"

>Is it gifts that come from the saint themselves or is it a gift that the saints received from God?

The point is moot. Does it matter to the pagan why his gods have their powers? No, he just wants their help.

The 'viscera' refers to the organs in the abdomen called intestines. It means, therefore, 'gut'.

>Y-You’re worshipping the image when though you know that the image isn’t the actual person or that the image has no power in and of itself. God doesn’t care if you are simply using the image as a visual aid; he is just mad that you’re projecting what you would do to the person that is represented by the image. By that logic, I can wipe my ass with a picture of Jesus because it’s just an image, guise :DDD. Who cares about complex symbolic relationships in the human mind that God gave us herp derp derp

>making assumptions about what I feel

>assuming that I am driven by my feelings

Yeaaaaah, I’m dealing with either a complete retard or a troll. It’s amazing how you don’t even grasp the basic concept of idolatry. An idol is anything that you place above God.

To say that it is idolatry to ask the saints in Heaven to pray for you is the most retarded bullshit I have ever heard on this board. By this logic, you shouldn’t ask ANYONE to pray for you, whether they are in Heaven or on earth. And no, it doesn’t matter if you bow towards them, or burn incense for them.

But whatever. I’m leaving because like I said: you’re either a troll who jusr wants to argue, or you are too stupid to grasp complex theological topics and you can only understand Scripture at face value without an ounce of nuance. I hope to God that you aren’t a clergyman or a teacher of the Bible in any matter.

I was raised as a Protestant (Baptist), and I never really considered either of the other two branches. Which of the three is the most scripturally accurate? Specifically, where is the prayer to apostles rather than to Christ mentioned in the Bible?

Catholics rely more on their purposefully convoluted, Talmud-tier literature than the Bible itself and mentally shit themselves whenever the infallible church does something obviously wrong, Eastern Orthodox are generally bros and better at backing their positions with scripture, while Protestants are a broad spectrum from wacky shit barely recognizable as Christianity to people with top-tier theology but also broken spirits from living so long in cucked nations.

Protestantism is too diverse. Some branches within Protestantism are close to the truth, while others are very far off. Trying to conflate them all serves no purpose but to skew one's image of Protestantism. That being said, none of the major denominations are perfect. I advise you to search the Bible for the validity of every doctrine that you come across. And above all, seek God's will (Matthew 7:7-11, Psalms 145:18).

Yeshua is the Messiah. Christianity is a gentile religion, but Yeshua came as the Messiah for Judaism. The only way you can follow him is if you become circumcised and follow the law. Paul was a heretic, he was a self hating Jew. He wrote the whole New Testament. We follow Yeshua not Paul.

Is this completely heretical?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-church_movement

I personally admire its philosophy.

Hard to find much english information on it.

https://www.makuya.org/founder/what-is-the-non-church-movement/

Uchimura Kanzō (内村 鑑三, March 26, 1861 – March 28, 1930) was a Japanese author, Christian evangelist, and the

founder of the Nonchurch Movement (Mukyōkai) of Christianity in the Meiji and Taishō period Japan. He is often

considered to be the most well-known Japanese pre-World War II pacifist.

Dissatisfaction with the mission church, however, led Uchimura and his Japanese supporters to establish an independent

church in Sapporo. This experiment turned out to be a precursor to what is now called the Nonchurch Movement.

Through Clark's teaching and example, this small group believed that they could practice and live an authentic

life of faith without depending on a religious institution or a professional clergy.

His writings in English include: Japan and the Japanese (1894) and How I became a Christian (1895)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uchimura_Kanz%C5%8D

The non-church movement (Japanese: 無教会主義 Hepburn: Mukyōkaishugi) is an indigenous Japanese Christian movement which

was founded by Uchimura Kanzō in 1901. The complete works of Uchimura consist of some 50 volumes: of which, 17 are

primarily biblical studies, 25 are volumes of theological works, and 8 are volumes of diaries and correspondence.
