Hi Lucian,

 

Pleased to meet you & welcome. That is very interesting about you desiring to be a writer and an artist. Great gifts from God. Can you please link us to one of your videos on utube so we can see what you do. It amazes me that your generation is so quick to use their gifts and the technology available. Good on you.

 

regards, Marilyn.

#117097 Good tidings!

Posted by Debp on 28 December 2017 - 07:08 AM

Correct, we do not believe in praying to saints as Jesus told us to pray to the Father in His name.

Although we often mention Jesus, we do believe in the Father and the Holy Spirit, that they are equal in the Godhead.

I think the reason we speak of Christ is that He is the way to salvation. He is the gate or door. Once we receive salvation through Him, we come to know the Father and the Holy Spirit.

In my personal experience, after receiving Christ as my Savior, the Holy Spirit became so real to me. After that, then our heavenly Father became precious to me. It's as if we sometimes get to know each member of the Godhead in a special way at a certain time in our lives.

Posted by FresnoJoe on 31 December 2017 - 11:36 PM

My name is Lucian, I live in Eastern-Europe, I am an aspiring writer and artist and I make videos on YouTube and other websites. I am an Orthodox Christian with non-denominational views. It's nice to meet you all.

 

 

It is not necessarily about rituals. Us Orthodox are similar to Catholics, but we reject the authority of The Pope. Our highest-ranking bishops are called patriarchs. We believe in the intercession of the saints, which many Protestants consider heresy. Also, in our prayer life, we tend to focus more on The Trinity than on Jesus alone.

 

:)

 

Welcome~!

 

Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! Psalms 133:1 (English Standard Version)

It Is No Heresy

 

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. Romans 8:25-27 (New International Version)

 

To Worship The Man

 

And because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, you are also an heir through God. Galatians 4:6-7 (Berean Study Bible)

 

Who Lives To Intercede For You

 

The former priests, on the one hand, existed in greater numbers because they were prevented by death from continuing, but Jesus, on the other hand, because He continues forever, holds His priesthood permanently.

 

Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. Hebrews 7:23-25 (New American Standard Bible)

 

As I See It

 

For the Messiah did not enter a sanctuary made with hands (only a model of the true one) but into heaven itself, so that He might now appear in the presence of God for us. Hebrews 9:24 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

 

~

 

Be Blessed Beloved Of The KING

 

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
 
And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them. Numbers 6:24-27 (King James Bible)
 
Love, Your Brother Joe

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever. Psalms 119:160 (King James Bible)
 
The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.
 
Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you.
 
It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword and the Christian’s charter. Here too, Heaven is opened and the gates of Hell disclosed.
 
Christ is its grand subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently and prayerfully.  It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure.
 
It is given you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, rewards the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.
 
From The Inside Of My Gideon New Testament

Please tell us something about your Orthodox faith? Is it more about rituals rather than a personal walk or relationship with Christ?

 

 

It is not necessarily about rituals. Us Orthodox are similar to Catholics, but we reject the authority of The Pope. Our highest-ranking bishops are called patriarchs. We believe in the intercession of the saints, which many Protestants consider heresy. Also, in our prayer life, we tend to focus more on The Trinity than on Jesus alone.

#113114 Donate Bibles

Posted by TimM on 20 December 2014 - 07:07 AM

I recently came across an article about how Christians can donate old\unused Bibles to those that don't have one.  You can gather old\unused Bibles that you own, ask family\friends to do the same, perhaps talk to your Church and call some local Churches and gather up any old\unused Bibles, maybe buy some, etc.  Then, you can donate them through this website:

 

http://biblesenders.org/

 

Also note that if you don't have a Bible, you can request one from the above website as well.

#117199 Animal Lovers' Good News Stories!

Our news gave an update on the young mountain lion with burned paws. They are still treating his paws... applying some skin or something from the Tilapia fish as a graft on the burned areas! He is doing well.

#117175 What denomination is this community centered around?

Posted by SongBird on 30 December 2017 - 03:26 PM

I'm not sure there is any specific denomination.  I believe all Christian denominations are welcome to fellowship about the Lord here freely.  I am a Messianic Christian.  I am not Jewish that I am aware of.  Although a spiritual Jew I admit to being as the word Jew means "one who praises".  So if you Praise the Lord you are a Jew :)

 

The Messianic denomination believes that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah of the whole world, the son of God combined with our Jewish roots and traditions that Jesus would have observed.  Not empty rituals but rather the teachings of the prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and the new covenant (Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, mind and soul; and love your neighbor as you love yourself).  If we observe these two laws we would ultimately fulfill them all.

 

God bless.
