All the other so-called “christian churches” left from origin and changed very very many things in Christianity..

Catholicism changes and adjusts dogmas every day.

Orthodoxy has remain pure and unchanged since the 7 ecumenical councils at the dawn of Christianity.

Catholics left us, and after them, the protestants split from them and drifted farther away from the true essence of Christianity, and then the anglicans, penticostals, baptists, etc, etc…. Now there are hundreads or even thousand of so-called “christian churches”.Catholics are the origin of all the sects today.

It is a saying…

“There were three Great falls in history:

1)The fall of Satan
2)The fall of Adam
3)The fall of the first Pope in 1054!

But the Truth is only one, and is found in the only Church founded by the 12 apostols.
The Orthodox Church.

Orthodox =The Right Faith

Ortho = Right,Unchanged
Dox = Dogma,Faith

All the thousands of so-called christian churches starting with Catholicism lost Apostolic descendence.
They are anathematised, because they changed the Faith.

Share this words to everyone and baptized in orthodox, God will honor you

We welcome your comments on the open blog thread for this show.

YouTube comments are at present disabled in our channel, to the displeasure of some. However, each video has a prominent link to the associated open thread that appears on our blog. In the past we’ve tried opening up the channel to comments, but we found that a very high number of episodes wound up being flooded with a combination of spam, long winded apologists, and various obscene or misogynistic comments directed at various hosts by people with an axe to grind. This seems to be the nature of YouTube comment sections, in our experience.

We do moderate the blog, the same way that we moderate chat during the show, as well as comments on our Facebook group. For comment sections that are “officially” associated with our show (and, to a much lesser extent, channels that may give the unintended appearance of being official), we prefer not to play host to straight up ad hominem attacks and bigotry. As a general policy we do not block commenters simply on the basis of disagreement with our point of view. However, we do prefer discussion environments that don’t actively chase off more reasonable contributors.

Questions asked in this video presentation:

1. Do you need to go to confession once a year in Roman Catholicism in order to be able to participate in the Roman Mass (communion) to have your sins forgiven?

2. Your background was in public relations & advertising, how did you end up attending Dallas Theological Seminary as a student?

3. What is the main problem with Roman Catholicism as qualifying it as a counterfeit of Christianity?

4. What is the Biblical Gospel & how did Jesus die for our sins?

5. Does the Bible & Biblical Christianity predate the Roman Catholic Church?

6. What about the great theological controversy between Augustine of Hippo and Pelagius around 414 AD? Why has the view of the Roman Church shifted from the view of Augustine to the view of Pelagius over the centuries?

7. Why is Biblical Christianity the pure form of Christianity while Roman Catholicism is more of a series of shifting traditions of men (Matthew 15)?

8. What is Biblical salvation concerning the question of faith?

Galatians 1:6-9, “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.”

Bishops Express Strong Support for Bishop Mark Lawrence and the

Diocese of South Carolina

“We came to encourage Bishop Mark Lawrence to stand firm in the faith,” The Rt. Rev. Abraham Yel Nhial, Bishop of the Diocese of Aweil in the Episcopal Church of Sudan”

Charleston, SC…April 11, 2013. – Amidst allegations that Anglicans worldwide do not recognize the Diocese of South Carolina and its bishop, Anglican Bishops from East Africa strongly announced their support for the diocese’s dissociation from The Episcopal Church Tuesday during comments at the Cathedral of St. Luke and St. Paul in Charleston.

The Bishops from Sudan, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania proclaimed unqualified endorsement of Bishop Mark Lawrence and the diocese. Their comments seemed to dispute the claims of Bishop Charles vonRosenberg, the newly elected bishop of the recently formed diocese – The Episcopal Church in South Carolina. In January, vonRosenberg announced that the Anglican Communion has not acknowledged Lawrence’s diocese, even though it represents the vast majority of local Anglicans. However the four bishops, all members of the Anglican Communion in good standing, specifically recognized the diocese during the gathering.
The four were guests of the diocese following their participation in the New Wineskins Conference in Ridgecrest, North Carolina, the largest Anglican missions conference in the world.

“We came to encourage Bishop Mark Lawrence to stand firm in the faith,” said the Rt. Rev. Abraham Yel Nhial, Bishop of the Diocese of Aweil in the Episcopal Church of Sudan. Bishop Nhial was one of the Lost Boys of Sudan whose story aired recently on 60 minutes.

“The people of South Sudan have suffered for 50 years. We’ve died because of our belief in Christ, our identity as Christians. I want to assure my brother Mark that suffering is part of our belief in Christ. We came here tonight not only to discuss what we’re doing in Christ, but also to encourage you to stand up and stand firm in your own faith.”

The Rt. Rev. Robert Martin, Bishop of the Diocese of Marsabit in the Anglican Church of Kenya, said that the Kenyan Church does not recognize The Episcopal Church any more. “Any contact I have with The Episcopal Church may cause me problems in Kenya because we are so shocked and horrified by what is going on and therefore any actions by The Episcopal Church have no validity as far as we’re concerned, ” he said.

Bishop Martin told those present how because of the religious conflicts in his country Christians in Kenya know that Christianity and suffering go together. “As my brothers have said we cannot expect peace in this world in terms of standing for the truth. The more I hear about what Bishop Mark is doing the more I respect him and the more I am pleased and delighted to be in fellowship with him and give thanks for the fellowship we have.”

The Rt. Rev. Elias Mazi Chakupewa, Bishop of the Diocese of Tabora in the Anglican Church of Tanzania, added, “I have read many things on the internet about what is happening here and I have been really praying for Mark and for all the Christians with him in this Diocese. As a Bishop of the Church of God I really pray for God’s intervention during this.”

The Rt. Rev. Nathan Kamusiime Gasatura, Bishop of the Diocese of Butare in the Anglican Church of Rwanda told how his Diocese was the first to provide support for clergy who left the Episcopal Church nearly 12 years ago. He compared the genocide suffered by his country to a “spiritual genocide,” taking place in the Church. “Because of the Rwandan genocide we suffered when the whole world stood by and no one … came to its rescue, we decided as a church we should never keep quiet while the church of Christ was seemingly undergoing a spiritual genocide so we stretched out our hands and we said, “Brothers, we know America is a great country, but this is a moment to stand for Christ no matter what the consequences.”

Role of Christianity in civilization

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.

Learning by listening is a great way to:
– increases imagination and understanding
– improves your listening skills
– improves your own spoken accent
– learn while on the move
– reduce eye strain

Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”
– Socrates

The role of Christianity in civilization has been intricately intertwined with the history and formation of Western society. Throughout its long history, the Church has been a major source of social services like schooling and medical care; inspiration for art, culture and philosophy; and influential player in politics and religion. In various ways it has sought to affect Western attitudes to vice and virtue in diverse fields. Festivals like Easter and Christmas are marked as public holidays; the Gregorian Calendar has been adopted internationally as the civil calendar; and the calendar itself is measured from the date of Jesus’s birth.
The cultural influence of the Church has been vast. Church scholars preserved literacy in Western Europe following the Fall of the Western Roman Empire. During the Middle Ages, the Church rose to replace the Roman Empire as the unifying force in Europe. The cathedrals of that age remain among the most iconic feats of architecture produced by Western civilization. Many of Europe’s universities were also founded by the church at that time. Many historians state that universities and cathedral schools were a continuation of the interest in learning promoted by monasteries. The university is generally regarded as an institution that has its origin in the Medieval Christian setting, born from Cathedral schools. The Reformation brought an end to religious unity in the West, but the Renaissance masterpieces produced by Catholic artists like Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael at that time remain among the most celebrated works of art ever produced. Similarly, Christian sacred music by composers like Pachelbel, Vivaldi, Bach, Handel, Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Liszt, and Verdi is among the most admired classical music in the Western canon.
The Bible and Christian theology have also strongly influenced Western philosophers and political activists. The teachings of Jesus, such as the Parable of the Good Samaritan, are among the important sources for modern notions of Human Rights and the welfare measures commonly provided by governments in the West. Long held Christian teachings on sexuality and marriage and family life have also been both influential and (in recent times) controversial. Christianity played a role in ending practices such as human sacrifice, slavery, infanticide and polygamy. Christianity in general affected the status of women by condemning marital infidelity, divorce, incest, polygamy, birth control, infanticide (female infants were more likely to be killed), and abortion. While official Church teaching considers women and men to be complementary (equal and different), some modern “advocates of ordination of women and other feminists” argue that teachings attributed to St. Paul and those of the Fathers of the Church and Scholastic theologians advanced the notion of a divinely ordained female inferiority. Nevertheless, women have played prominent roles in Western history through and as part of the church, particularly in education and healthcare, but also as influential theologians and mystics.
Christians have made a myriad contributions to human progress in a broad and diverse range of fields, both historically and in modern times, including the science and technology, medicine, fine arts and architecture, politics, literatures, Music, philanthropy, philosophy, ethics, theatre and business. According to 100 Years of Nobel Prizes a review of Nobel prizes award between 1901 and 2000 reveals that (65.4%) of Nobel Prizes Laureates, have identified Christianity in its various forms as their religious preference. Eastern Christians (particularly Nestorian Christians) have also contributed to the Arab Islamic Civilization during the Ummayad and the Abbasid periods by translating works of Greek philosophers to Syriac and afterwards to Arabic. They also excelled in philosophy, science, theolo …
