    When Christians say that Jesus Christ died for our sins...

    Yes, according to my understanding, Christ manifested inconsistencies in His behavior. You recommended me to act like Christ. How can I do that other than by mimicking the behavior of Christ that exists in my mind as a result of my personal perception of what I've read in the Bible? I didn't...

    When Christians say that Jesus Christ died for our sins...

    According to the Bible, Christ manifested inconsistencies in His behavior. How can I know which parts of His behavior to apply in which situation? For example, am I allowed to curse trees that don't have fruit if I'm hungry when I walk past them? Am I allowed to refuse helping women the first...

    When Christians say that Jesus Christ died for our sins...

    I don't get it. It makes no sense to me. And, according to 1 Corinthians 1:18, that means I'm perishing.

    Wanting to get back into religious forums, but ...

    I used to like forums a lot in the past as well, but they gradually started to see less and less appealing. I guess we just change as we age, our personalities evolve. There is a time to enjoy forums and a time to not enjoy forums as much anymore.

    When Christians say that Jesus Christ died for our sins...

    ... what exactly do they mean by that? What's the correlation between the capital punishment He suffered after being falsely accused of blasphemy by the Israelite high priests and our sins? Is there a rational explanation for why He had to die, or is it all considered a mystery?

    How do Orthodox Christiasn understand of the cross/ the crucifixion of Jesus?

    I respectfully disagree with the idea that God doesn't want us to understand the mechanics of our salvation. The Bible says that Jesus explained the Scriptures to His disciples after His resurrection. It seems unplausible that the disciples didn't exactly know the reasons for what happened when...

    Pope Francis encourages Catholics to say Jesus Prayer throughout the day

    So how would you define a vain repetition then? Could you give me an example of a vain repetition within prayer, that Jesus disapproves of?

    Pope Francis encourages Catholics to say Jesus Prayer throughout the day

    I'm scared to repeat this prayer because Jesus said not to use vain repetition when we pray. I feel more comfortable just talking to God about my issues.

    I didn't say it was your fault. It's not. It's not even the video creator's fault. You don't have to apologize.
