Hey, this is good!
Your going to have to believe everything I say now coz Im the only one that answered!
Here is another excellent site(I'm still learning!)
An Online Orthodox Catechism.......QUOTE///
When God tells Moses ‘I am who I am’ (Ex.3:14), this means ‘I live, I am here, I am together with you’. At the same time this name emphasizes
the superiority of God’s being over all other beings. He is the independent, primary, eternal being, the plenitude of being which is above being.
here is another site about the Divinity of Christ...Creature
On how old the earth is....(reason I dont go into this , is because it is quite lengthy and , although I like reading, this needs concentration and at
times i'm :bnghd:
....did I list this
OR .......Quote///2. Creation of the Earth, the Visible World.
After the creation of Heaven, the invisible, angelic world, God created out of nothing, by His word alone, earth, that is, the material from which He
gradually made our visible, physical world, the visible sky, earth and all that is in them.
God could have created the world in a single instant, but since He wished from the very beginning that this world should live and develop step by
step, He created it not in an instant, but over several periods of time, which in the Bible are called "days."
These "days" of creation were not the usual days that we know, consisting of twenty-four hours. Our days depend on the sun. However, during the
first three "days" of creation there was no sun yet in existence, which means that the days described in Genesis could not have been the kind of
days as we understand them.
The Bible was written by the Prophet Moses in the ancient Hebrew language, and in this language both "day" and a period of time are called by the
same word Yom. It is impossible for us to know exactly what kind of days these were, even more so since we know that "one day is with the Lord as a
thousand years, and a thousand years as one day" (II Peter 3:8; Ps. 89:5).
Law of God
anyway, i just read somewhere that EO believe that if you arent EO that you dont get into heaven is that true?
Only God can judge......."Judge not, that ye be not judged," (Matt. 7:1), "for if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also
forgive you" (Matt, 6:14).
ALSO..... "For He saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it
is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth [struggleth], but of God that showeth mercy" (Rom. 9:15-16).
AND...... "For what have I to do to judge them also that are without?
Do not ye judge them that are within?
But them that are without God judgeth" (1 Cor. 5:12-13). God "will have mercy on whom He will have mercy" (Rom 9:18).
So I guess I am in no position to judge anyone(I have previously)whether what or how they deal with their lives is up to them......
blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (Matt. 12:1-32).
The Holy Spirit is, above all, the Spirit of Truth, as the Saviour loved to refer to Him. Accordingly, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is blasphemy
against the Truth, conscious and persistent opposition to it. The same text makes it clear that even blasphemy against the Son of Man—i.e. the Lord
Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God Himself may be forgiven men, as it may be uttered in error or in ignorance and, subsequently may be covered by
conversion and repentance (an example of such a converted and repentant blasphemer is the Apostle Paul. (See Acts 26:11 and I Tim. 1:13.)
"Who will have all men to be saved" (I Tim. 2:4) and "Who enlightens every man born into the world" (Jn. 1.43), undoubtedly is leading them also
towards salvation In His own way.
There are also teachings of the parables.....the parable of the Publican and the Pharisee///
Through His narration of the parable on how two people — a Pharisee and a tax collector — prayed in the temple, the Lord shows what kind of prayer
is required of the Lord’s followers so that it can attract His help and protection.
The Gospel’s Parables....just click to whichever you want to read.
Angels and demons.....You should read a book called ''The Soul after Death'' by Fr Seraphim Rose......Great book!
Being tempted by unseen forces is true/temptations.....We all fall into bad habits(whatever they may be)It's recognising these as being bad that
begins the healing process......eg/if your sick and you dont go to the Dr, then how can the Dr help you?
Its the same with God.....how can He help if you are too proud to ask for help!
Hope that helps a bit more.....
