    When were icons first introduced & can be proven?

    So you have (broken) ESP now? Wow. Anyway, the fact that this turned into a veiled ad hominem by dredging up tons of old posts and calling me a 'burn out' just shows no one here can create a rational response. Address the topic, not the person and all that stuff, that everyone else is expected...

    When were icons first introduced & can be proven?

    I'm not denying I said them. Its just funny (sad) he trawled through 1044 posts to re-post a bunch of things in different threads in response to me making him mad and some weird vendetta that seems to be developing.

    Wedding rings?

    Which doesn't really mean anything in the context of this discussion, he has no idea what has happened since then, and it has no relationship to this discussion. Its nothing but trolling (especially considering he went and found several posts and reposted them in different threads).

    Nice to see you trolling around for stuff to troll and you spent three hours on it. :D

    Wedding rings?

    So, when you can't form a cogent argument you bring up old stuff (and you've also never said or did anything that wasn't right). Good job on abject failure.

    Wedding rings?

    Hmm, guess St. John Chrysostom is in hot water: orthodoxinfo.com/praxis/dress_grooming.aspx The Apostolic teaching is totally unequivocal. Calling people pharisees and such just betrays a lack of comprehension. Further, the pharisees were condemned because they thought salvation could be...

    Wedding rings?

    Come on, you guys anathematize people for not kissing icons (which, by now, nearly everyone has admitting wasn't done in the early church and is a development) and you're throwing around "pharisee." So St.  Paul and Peter just made things up in their epistles, they're not the teaching of...

    Wedding rings?

    No problem with a 'pagan did it', just going with the very plain, basic reading of the bible and not  jumping through hoops to say "Oh, he didn't really mean that" so I can keep all the 20th century middle class affectations of modern American/European society. Heck, actually the pagans look...

    Wedding rings?

    You're not in the least. Like usual, people's arguments against the plain simple meaning of the Bible are facile. Abraham gave his wives rings, so apparently Babylonian and proto-Bedouin cultural traditions trump Jesus? The metaphorical adorning Israel with jewels as a reward does too...

    Kenyan Christianity

    Most probably Victorian teetotaler influence, and probably influenced by the Methodist strains.

    anyone that has read lots of christian literature

    Well, "I" didn't as I'm probably not going to take the class.

    anyone that has read lots of christian literature

    Good thing I didn't go to an American high school I guess. Its a literature class, not a theology class. The main point is writing.

    anyone that has read lots of christian literature

    I figure there is someone here that has read all of these, and I'm curious if I will feel bored out of my mind/find it difficult to read this in 6 weeks, plus write papers, work, do volunteer work and other stuff. I can't even find some of this stuff on the web to see what it is like...

    Picture of the Day

    That actually makes sense.
