I double checked, and it appears I got the right Cyril according to the OCA. http://oca.org/saints/lives/2015/05/11 Thanks for keeping me in check with the +rep, though! ~hugs~
You are in my prayers, brother. May God bless and keep you. ~hugs~
Yeah, that was Tesla, the band, I linked there at the end of the quote, TER. Heh. Clickit. You'll see. Interestingly, though, Nikola was actually an Orthadox Christian, now that you mention it. Which is interesting...
You know, getting back to that link you shared with me, I'm likely going to just have to read the Bible front to back. I see so many different positions taken from verying translation. For me, I'm interested in the actual infrastructure of the book. If that makes sense. I still haven't got through all of that stuff in your link, though. I will, though.
I finally got through most of that, TER. A lot of reading. Heh...
Thanks, TER. I'll check it out. I'm trying to piece together the so called "Gospels" at the moment. Seems like there are a few. Which is interesting. As well, I've been researching the infrastructure of the Bible. If that makes sense. I suppose you know what I mean. How have you been? I haven't seen you around in a while.
That was only 5% of the article. Tradition doesn't really prove anything for a Christian, only the Bible does. The Bible stands over traditions and judges them righty and wrongly.
IDK if you caught this news recently: http://oca.org/in-memoriam/protopresbyter-thomas-hopko

From a thread earlier today- In a nutshell, it is because Sola pretends to be a Christian but is in reality anti-Vatican, just as many of the early generation of 'reformers' were. To their great and tragic loss, these reformers threw out the baby out with the bathwater, literally. Now, Sola follows their lead.
I agree with you, but I think it better to make the counter-argument against Sola's argument instead of Sola personally. This is probably what you mean, but the language can be easily construed as a personal attack. God bless and keep you, and sweet dreams brother! ~hugs~ Please keep me in your prayers.
Forgive me if I derailed your thread about saints too much. You can mark them for the mods if they're distracting. ~hugs~ God bless and keep you!
Hey, Ter, can you PM me? I have some questions on theology.
