  • Not to mention that even if we did have a better understanding of our faith their are always some people that will never accept new things or ideas no matter how correct they are. A Wise Man Once Said : Avoid those who prefer conflict in discussion
  • my friends teacher also said God could be a gurl. Is it just me or when students/ teachers say stuff like that you just imidiatly jump into the conversation and correct them and try and tell them the right teaching even if you don't know much a…
  • God Bless you Youstina S :), thanks for the great reply. If anyone else has something else to add it would be greatly appreciated. ;D
  • I agree, just get your mind off things pray, or be with friends and family. My personal faviorite would have to be praising and talking to saints and believe it or not sometimes you'll get an answer back pretty quick usually within the little things…
  • I'd also like to add that when I asked my preist about the fasting before communion he told me it's 9 hours and/or completing the day. He told me that taking communion is almsot like a new beggining so Christ's Body and Blood should be the first thi…

  • Lets not forget the miricle of Moakttam (excuse my spelling) where the Coptic Orthodox Church moved a mountain literally and beat other religions in a debate.
  • Correct me if im wrong, but i think our desiers and passions come from our human nature/personality the way we grew up, the people and things we were brought up around and people that influence us have an impact on our desires and passions. Now pass…
  • Sorry but its not fair to say Asian parents are known to be very strict, Asia is the largest continent on the world and holds more then half the worlds population ( about 3/5ths to be exact ) ; its countries range from Russia to Iraq to India to Chi…
  • Heres somethng interesting, I guess we can sum the part about the unrigheous people and demons waiting in Hades, till judgement day. Right? But theirs a 'Word List' at the back of my Bible and as I was looking through it and I read the word "abyss" …

  • there r 4 heavens but not including St. Mary :-\ what does not including St. Mary mean im not understanding, i thought we were talkin about heavens here? ???
    in The Heavens Comment by Allen August 2004
  • I think the reason you guys think their are 7 heavens is because sometimes they say there are 'several' layers to heaven. But we must remember that in English 'several' does not mean seven it means a few, therefor saying their are several layers to …

  • Very true, but back on the age topic I think age doesnt really matter but the younger you are the less likely its love and the more likely its just someone falling into the decit of lust. Less likely but still not impossible...
  • Looks like a good church :)
  • I got no experience in this ethier :-\ but im guessing that because Lust immitates Love its very hard to distinguish them with bold black and white characteristics. Lust can do a pretty good job imitating Love! So i guess the only way to tell is to …

    in Fasting Comment by Allen August 2004
  • I agree with Mike and Banoub, its a special at peace feeling you get inside of you, almost a heavenly peace. And I think when your doing the right thing and are close to God you'll feel it throughout your day, maybe a few extra rewards or small co-i…
