I just found out that Frederik North, the 5th Earl of Guildford, who established the Ionian Academy on Corfu, was an Orthodox Christian.

I really must stop posting from my phone.  Too many mistakes.

It is all a matter of perspective.  Maybe comparatively speaking, it is really easy.  He doesn't require we sacrifice our first born children and fillet the skin from our bodies to achieve theosis, so thats something, right?  ;)

Fixed it.  ;D
If a person was born blind I would not blame them for being unable to see the sun...

See where I'm going with this? Or, I suppose, I shouldn't say that God makes it so hard, so much as he lets it be hard. For some. Most? Any?

Didn't JamesR  start a whole thread about this, but from the point of view of suffering?  There was actually some good discussion there about it.  I seem to recall that I thought Shanghaiski's reply was the best of the lot.  But, that was just my opinion.  :angel:

And yeah...it's hard.  Sometimes it's a little easier than others, but.........

Hey guys, I heard that Karl Keating believes that only one of the three conditions (namely, faith and morals) is needed for a papal statement to be ex cathedra. I can hardly believe it, but I read it in black and white!

That isn't exactly true, but I see what you are doing.  LOL!

I have completed my goal for the day which was to post stupid meme pics in all the threads in politics which have been posted on in the last few days.  I was going to fill the entire first page with TheTrisagion as the last poster, but a certain someone kept messing up my handiwork.  :mad:

Had you notified me ahead of time of your nefarious plot, I would gladly have cooperated and assisted you in any way possible.  As it was, you chose to go it alone and there are consequences for that.  ;D

That's what I thought.  Go have a cookie.  (Just make sure it's an ancestral one that won't kill you  ;D.)

Have I ever told you....well...never mind.  Anyway, "life's a bitch and then you die."  Now I think I need a cookie.  Back in a minute...

When did girls start doing that thing where the pockets of their shorts hang lower than the bottom hemline? Is that the correct term? 8th grade home economics was so long ago. Anyway...

I don't know, but hopefully they will stop doing it soon.

Notice that the model has bent one leg forward and the other leg is in the background, so it gives an illusion that one knee cap is slightly higher than the other.

The hanging pockets result because these jeans are cut-off a little too short, but that is the crazy fashions we are experiencing.

Ahh, I see it now.  Makes sense.  I had not noticed the bend.  :p
