    So, the non-Orthdox should note something interesting here. Outdoor baptismal structures are a very ancient custom that hasn't really caught on in America. But this was the norm for the first part of Christianity. Also note that the proper practice is, actually, full immersion. Baptizing by washing the head only is a strictly Western practice.

    I do hope we get some Africans in my parish some day. We have Russians, Romanians, Greeks, a Bulgarian, and lots of generic American protestant converts, but nobody from Africa or the far East yet. I'm wondering, though... the most I've seen baptized at one time was eight, and it was a family. I'd be really interested to see the format of a mass baptism. It takes nearly an hour for one infant. :D

    What is also a known secret is that many Turks are secretly converting and becoming Christians (cryptoChristians). The media and government don’t like to talk about it but the numbers are estimated to be in the 10-15 million people range. This is quite an impressive number if true.

    Here's a simple solution, that won't cost a dime, in fact it will save money. Stop stuffing internet connected, wireless computers into every fucking gadget on the face of the earth in order to do nothing but fucking spy on us. The only person that needs to know how much milk my refrigerator has, where my car has been driven, how much water my washing machine used, is me. Oh, and piss off with your self driving cars as well. In fact, stop stuffing computers of any kind into anything.

    There is much missionary work being done there by the Orthodox Church. Africa and Central America are demonstrating the greatest rise in baptisms currently worldwide with entire communities converting. The missionaries in Africa in particular speak of the great difficulty in converting the people because of dark magic which they must contend against. The cultures and religions there are steeped in demonic activity and power and it is with great spiritual battles whereby the continent is turning slowing Christian. Of course, much work is left to be done, but it is great to see progress being made. Glory to God for all things!

    The conundrum: Who to trust? The minute Dr. Paul went to cut off the welfare/warfare state do you think he would not have the chaos current going on? If you think Dr. Paul could bring home troops "we walked in, we can just walk out." against the MIC you are clueless to how corrupt the country has become. This corruption did not happen over night and it certainly cannot be taken away over night. Baby steps is the best way to go to root-out this corruption and I think Trump is doing a damn good job at this point.

    He died shortly after we discovered bone and lung cancer. I dreaded a discussion about euthanasia, but was so glad we did not. The funny thing is that the vet recommended it when discovering the illnesses. She gave us a quality of life evaluation. It was about this time that Fredo perked up and started prompting my wife and licking her face, as if to say Get me outa here! Well, I think taking him home turned out to be a good decision. We managed him with three medications, which seemingly put him as ease. A 4th medication was discontinued because it was likely causing GI bleeding. We could not detect any signs of significant pain or distress with the other 3 medicines. I don't know much about pain thresholds, but my wife has good instincts. Fredo died Tuesday with us by his side. I knew he was fading and woke my wife, who was dozing on the couch. He took his last breath at 1:15am. I hope this helps anyone who goes through the agony of making a decision about "letting go" of a pet. We had to sort of prompt the vet to increase the medication, since doctors often seem to be on the conservative side (I was really glad to have some old stash in the freezer to tide us over). One of the vets did not have much experience with one of the medications, but it worked out okay. I'd be glad to discuss the medications in this thread or a PM if anyone is going through this. It's not really that expensive and I think the extra care is worth it. Don't know if we will ever get another dog, but I'd like to hear others' experience with this.

Methodius Extracts From the Work on Things Created par 9 (300 ad) But if there are thirteen days in the sight of God from the creation of the world, how can Wisdom say, in the Book of the Son of Sirach: "Who can number the sand of the sea, and the drops of rain, and the days of eternity?"

For the process was no word-craft, nor contrivance of human devices: but the translation of the Divine Scriptures, spoken by the Holy Ghost, was of the Holy Ghost accomplished.

    To add to this thread, it was during this same time of the Nazi round up of Jews in Greece when the monks of Mount Athos hid Jews within the monasteries to avoid them from being captured. That was the only time in a thousand years when any females were admitted into the Holy Mountain (according to the ancient rule which was introduced forbidding women there, not because women are inferior by any means, for the greatest Christian Saint is a woman and the guardian of Mount Athos (the Virgin Mary), but because it was established to be a place for male monks to seek constant and incessant prayer for the world, undistracted). But during those dark days, the monks risked their lives and security to protect these innocent Jewish women.

    Actually, they did. As did Jesus. In Matthew 6:33, Jesus is borrowing from Wisdom Of Solomon 8:7. This should not be a surprise, as Matthew's audience is Jewish-and would've known the literature and regarded it as scripture.

    You have no idea what the apostles taught because you either reject or are ignorant of the evidence of what they taught. That is the point you missed: if you ignore the years 33 through 1517, you lose by default. To use an analogy from one of the few Lutherans I still pay attention to, you are like a scientist who claims there is no such thing as barium, and to prove it, you're going to throw out all the samples of barium.

    Here is a man who found the truth in the Orthodox Church and joined at great financial risk to himself and with the knowledge that he would be mocked and alienated by long time friends and loved ones for joining. But when a person comes to see the truth, as led by God’s will through the Holy Spirit, than nothing can stop them, even death itself. God bless all those who struggle yet persevere, for it is the Church of the martyrs which demonstrates where the Church of the Saints is, and it is the Orthodox Church which has always been and will always be the Church of the martyrs and the Church of the Saints. May they continue to pray and intercede for us before the Throne of God, and through their prayers, may God have mercy on us.

    2. United States – 10.59 million barrels per day In a disappointment to Americans everywhere, the US sits at second place with production equal to 12% of the total. Because of its high-tech economy and stable investment climate, the US is at the forefront of non-conventional energy extraction including shale oil and tar sands. These types of oil drilling have reshaped the landscape: the Bakken oil development in North Dakota now shines as brightly at night as regional neighbors like Minneapolis-St. Paul and Chicago. In the future, the US appears set to reclaim its mantle as top oil producer from Saudi Arabia as it moves to tap into an estimated 1,442 billion barrels of recoverable oil. In the meantime, the US is forced to import oil from Mexico, Canada, and other sources as its consumption still exceeds production. 1. Saudi Arabia – 11.75 million barrels per day The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia produces a whopping 13.24 percent of all the oil produced daily in the entire world. Considering that they sit on over 260 billion barrels of oil–the second highest total after Venezuela–the fortune of the House of Saud appears secure. Its crown as oil champion, however, is less secure: when accounting for energy production including natural gas and biofuels, Saudi Arabia is already behind the United States. https://financesonline.com/top-10-oil-producing-countries-in-the-world-wheres-the-greatest-petroleum-dominion/

    A "mythology" is not inherently false. It can be simply a set of stories, traditions, or beliefs associated with a particular group or the history of an event, arising naturally or deliberately fostered. We can call literally all faith traditions "mythologies". I just don't bother to sit around antagonizing other faiths like you do because a) it's a waste of time and b) as the old monastic saying goes "keep your eyes on your own plate".

    HAHA! I just saw your post in another thread (I was catching up on forum drama) about Mr A putting me on a leash. I don't think he would do that to me if he could. Even though he complains about my oversharing sometimes (not on the forum but IRL. I'm not good at filtering), he knows I'm a good girl and despite my outward personality, I'm a surprisingly solid and committed person underneath. We've been together since I was 23 (24 years/married 20), he knows everything - even stuff he'd rather not know.
