@Ricci exactly! Speaking my language, Ricci

aimless complaints about progressive spirituality 

@Ricci maybe cop out wasn’t the best phrase to use. My main issue with these descriptions of god as the interaction between people who each other, or as the ground of being feels so weak to me and uninspiring (especially as someone who has/still is struggling with faith and a good concept of god) 😕 🤷‍♂️

I can't believe I just lost The Game in the Year of our Lord 2019

To any other classical or biblical scholars out there: how would you re-translate διακρίνω?

It's often rendered "to doubt" in NT, but as it doesn't really have this meaning anywhere outside the Bible in contemporary or prior uses, I'm beginning to doubt *hah* that this was ever its intended meaning even in the Bible.

I've been playing around with "determine", "decide", "distinguish", "divide", "over-analyze"...

Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

I can understand if this is some kind of survival theology, but I guess it just irks me a little. I crave theology that is at least partially supernatural.

I don’t really have anywhere to go with this, I just needed to vent after the first part of today’s episode 😅

I’m so sick of definitions of god and spirituality that focus only on love between humans or natural processes. It feels like a fucking cop out to me. As someone who doesn’t particularly like other humans very easily, there’s nothing really appealing about that concept of god to me. I know that isn’t a very liturgists-ie sentiment.

Humans, in one form or another, have been on Earth for maybe 2.5 million years. The Andromeda galaxy is 2.5 million light years away.

Under dark, clear skies, you can see the Andromeda galaxy with your own two eyes. If you do, you’ll be looking at light which has been travelling through space for roughly as long as our genus has existed on this planet.

Liturgist fam-I need help finding a children’s book or 5 that feature interracial parents/families! Particularly if the mother is white and the father is black. The book(s) doesn’t have to be about interracial families necessarily, just looking for illustrations that depict such a family. Thanks in advance!

@DevSorrell haha that was me last night. Coupled with homemade guacamole and tortilla chips

@thegreendragon assuming church in its current form would still exist, probably not. It probably wouldn’t be offering baskets, but sign up sheets for volunteering to maintain the campus and care for the community of people

I'd say that Rowling needs to stop retroactively diversifying her characters, but the memes that spin off from her antics are Reddit gold.

@rekh127 @hope
This looks great.

I just got a plastic toy lamb delivered. I’m doing to either stick a small blade through it or make it look like its throat is slit. This is to represent the image of Jesus defeating those that oppose him by dying.

Christianity shitpost 

so what you're telling me is that if I'm good during my life I get to stay in a room with every old person who has ever died for the rest of eternity

but if I'm bad I get to hang out with the devil?

are you sure you have these in the right order?
