Excuse me, would anyone mind a thread about church design and maybe preference?
It's a trap.

When you didn't go through with it.

There should be a handbook for mentally filing through angry spam.

As of right now we only have three banners. I'd like there to be more, and I'm sure someone somewhere has saved the banners from previous iterations of /christian/, 8chan and otherwise. If you have them, post them here, or feel free to make your own as well! The only requirement is that they are 300x100 and of high quality.

Matthew 22
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 'On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.'

Galatians 5
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; 'Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.'

the music thread is gone so I'm posting these by themselves instead. At my assembly today it was reminded that ALL the law is fulfilled and HANGS on the commandment of love. How much do we make sure we're right with the law and doing the right thing and we ignore the actual focus of God and his will from the beginning his commandment. Death experiences have told us of the great love when in the light of God. Many of us have known moments when we have been put in front of God's love and how much we want to live in it forever and how much we will live in it forever.

The music folder. Performances of every Psalm, also includes all other songs from the Bible. They might literally be the psalms or based on them even just a small part. The Hymns are from the Hymnal Companion to the Book of Common Prayer. And spiritual songs.

(Colossians 3)
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

(Ephesians 5)
"Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;"

Hey I'm one of those anons with neurosis, anon
I just tend to tank insults though... it's not like there isn't an unholy social experiment being performed on every subsequent generation from the boomers onwards and occassional anxiety is a sane and rational result of it in my eyes.

A thousand times Hajime no Ippo
It's not a pacifist show at all mind but it's sporting combat, death tends to lurk in combative sport but doesn't get a foot through the door generally in the show, there's some slapstick homo-misunderstandings among young men that isn't there to promo- bumming or anything, and the romantically explorative remains something only naive and stupid, meaning women generally stay out of the way and never really step into being an important plot hanger

There's also another one... it's called (remembering...) ... Time of Eve. The series, not the abridged movie. It's got robo-transumanism talking points within it. Death isn't a thing pursued. There are romantic relations, bizarre ones exhibited between the show's robotry but it's not about finding a lay or pleasures of the flesh particularly it basically illustrates the diverging flowchart for where humanity *could* go with its machines, and prompts you to ask what that might/ought to look like. It's on the whole a well-meaning show. Also the cafe background it's set with

>I get the appeal
People try and explain fetishes a lot, but I think ultimately the real reason why people have any fetish is simply this: We all, due to the sin nature, have the desire to exploit anything around us for our own gratification. It just manifests differently depending on a variety of factors.

Things have been pretty slow since /Christian/ moved here but I don't want this thread to end so I'm going to recommend another anime.
Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom is one of the best anime I've ever seen. I don't want to give spoilers but the story is about characters who have their memories erased and are forced to become assassins for a criminal organization. 
As the story develops, many things are questioned such as freedom, the meaning of life, forgiveness and others, I hope you give it a chance

Hey anons, not exactly a Christian but I would like your assistance. I am currently suffering from intensive demonic attacks. I am seeing awful faces, clouds of energy, flashes of light, and colored lights, and I am suffering all sorts of violation and nightmares. I am praying and reading the Bible as I can and rebuking this spirit as it attacks. I already have my family praying for me, but it wouldn't hurt to have you guys praying for me as well.

Holy Father, we thank you for allowing our community to successfully migrate to its new home. In Jesus' name, we humbly ask that we may become full of the Holy Spirit, so that we can minister to our broken brothers in the chanosphere, and grow together in discipleship. Amen.

Holy Father, in Jesus' name, we ask that you relieve our brothers from the oppression of darkness, and that you send them the Holy Spirit, so that they may long to know and serve you, and so that they renounce whatever sins place them under the yoke of the evil one. Amen.
My family is in a tenuous financial situation at the moment. Pray that we find a way out of it and don't lose the house.

Due to several threads being dragged wildly off-topic by some anons' inability to hold themselves back whenever someone says the Pope is the antichrist or that Martin Luther destroyed Christianity, this thread will serve as a pseudo-containment thread for dialogue between Catholics and Protestants. Rules still apply in here, keep the thread on topic, do not make one-liner insults or ad hominems, keep it civil and respectful. Posts that try to start fights between Churches and drag the OP off-topic in other threads will be deleted, no matter how many there are.

>50“Do not stop him,” Jesus replied, “for whoever is not against you is for you.”

I actually asked God through a Bible generator and picture related is what he said. The infighting of Christians is so tragic, correction is fine but we should work together even if we disagree on a lot.

Amen brother
I wasn't the one being argued with but there were some interesting questions ITT.

>which denomination bro, check em

>how come/how so?
Not by lineage or marriage or anything, by grief/happenstantial divine grace/by accident

It most closely resembles how (not necessarily what) I think on most matters

>you reject though some stuff in the Bible, don't you? DON'T YOU?
Yeah, original sin and sacrifice are not concepts that I understand properly. The idea of a blood debt that must be paid is unsatisfactory since death is a poor arbiter of satisfaction, that is to say it doesn't offer any. If it did then those doing the reaping would surely receive it. I do not accept the story that God booted us from Heaven in a rage but I anticipate that man requested it against God's better judgement. I accept that Jesus sacrificed everything for us so as to enoble us, but not because God demanded payment as tax collector from his debtors.

Ordinarily I would think these things are fine and simply lost to allegory - lessons left to a people who needed them in the exact manner they were given, but then again Jesus himself refers to Hell several times as a real place which is another aspect that I don't understand.

sorry have not figured out embed

How many times have I heard it now? The black death? "Necessary suffering". The potato famine? "Necessary suffering." The airplane crash? "Necessary suffering."

Centuries of weak excuses for reasoning that's clumsily used or chosen.

Guilt, guilt, guilt; you're not meek enough, you're not impoverished enough...

This is a man who I think believes what he says but whose work has become just another drudging daily graft on a Thursday afternoon. If that's what you got every Sunday you would not go.
Sorry about the projecting cope I wrote last night really just need God's help.

I am from Romania and there is no translation of the septuagint bible into romanian made after 1914.
The septuagint bible is imo better than the masoretic one as it contains more than whatever the bare essentials were considered by the curators of the masoretic one.

There have been BIG changes in romanian dictionaries and lexicons so much so that I can only really understand 4/5 words/expressions.

I have made a promise to myself when I was a kid, to never read a book until I have read the bible from cover to cover.

I intend to fulfill that promise to myself even if regretably I can't find any half decent translations of it into romanian (so that I can promote it to people to read it themselves and to know what they are actually standing for as christians). 
So what are some decent translations of the septuagint bible in english?

New English Translation of the Septuagint
It's in modern English and it's free but it has a quirk where they kept the ancient Greek spellings of names.

Michael Asser Septuagint
Revision of the KJV done by an Orthodox translator.

Orthodox Study Bible
It's in modern English based on the NKJV but it has an issue where it deviates from the Greek manuscripts and uses the Hebrew reading in places without any indication:
