#wednesdaythought Houses of God

That (#Jesus) #Christ actually inhabits the nature of the regenerate believer is assumed, implied and overtly stated in the Holy Scriptures(#Bible). All the Persons of the Godhead ..
are said to enter the nature of the one that engages New Testament #Truth in #faith and obedience. "If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him" (John 14:23). ..
And the doctrine of the indwelling of the #HolySpirit is too well known to need support here; everyone that is taught even slightly in the Word of God understands this. Whatever God is, the Man #Christ #Jesus is also. ..

I am terrified of what this country has become. #Religious #dictatorship of far-right government (or rather ruling party's chairman) has destroyed the tripartite system.
An almost 100% ban on #abortion has been already introduced ([1],[2]) under the label of "being pro-life", without providing any actual support for disabled children and families in need.
Yesterday the parliament approved an anti-#LGBT bill in first step of legislation ([3]). Racism and homophobia are on the agenda ([4]), especially in the givernment-run tv stations.

#BIG Govt of India reappointed Priyank Kanungo @KanoongoPriyank as Chairperson of NCPCR @NCPCR_ for 2nd term.
Dubious NGOs tried their best to stop it through last minute frivolous petition but failed to achieve the goal!
Best wishes to him n thanks @narendramodi @AmitShah
During his 1st term as CP he had hit evangelist groups working under the guise of child rights NGOs and had ordered orphanages to repatriated FAKE orphans to their homes to reunite with parents. The ordered had irked #Church groups running orphanages of purchased kids.

#REQUEST On Shri Krishna Janmashtami (Coming 30th August) We urge all to keep Late Swami Lakshmanananda Saraswati ji's photo as Twitter, whatsapp n FB DP n status in the memory of Great Saint murdered by #Church #Naxal #Communist nexus! #Odisha
He was killed on same day in 2008!
Swami ji was standing as obstacle between Church and Tribal Vanavasi society of #Odisha for which he was assassinated in #Kandhamal as he had effectively stopped Christian Conversions in the area!
By remembering Swami Lakshmananand ji, we can defeat agenda of Church playing its victim card.
#Kandhamal violence remembrance is tool to whitewash sins of killing Swami ji n Vanavasi Culture.
Join online program, raise your questions to fix responsibility of Swami ji's murder!

A friend came around & we got chatting ..He said very angrily ..."did you see on the news in #Canada ...people pulling down the Queen's statue" ? He was very upset...
I asked him if he knew why the people were doing so ?
He had no idea ? Did the news not specify the reason ?
I showed him this .......
Statues of Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Victoria were torn down in the #Canadian city of Winnipeg by protesters furious over the recent discovery of hundreds of unmarked graves of indigenous #children.
The protests came amid growing outrage
after at least 750 unmarked graves were found at Marieval Indian Residential School in Saskatchewan and another 215 were found buried in Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia.

(1/3) This incredibly detailed gold #Byzantine wedding ring is our #ArtefactOfTheDay.

Produced c. 7th century CE, the bezel depicts the bride and groom being crowned by the haloed figures of Jesus and Mary. Beneath them is the word: "Harmony".

#Classics #Christian #History #Art
(2/3) Remarkably, the exterior of the ring is also heavily inscribed with seven scenes from Jesus's life in chronological order, from the Annunciation to the Resurrection.

A personalised wish by the married couple is also featured: “Lord, help thy servants, Peter and Theodote".
(3/3) The edges of the bezel also feature a verse from the #Gospel of John (14:27) that asks God to grant the newlyweds peace.

The ring testifies not only to the intimacy of the couple, but of their steadfast devotion to #God on a small, personal level.

1/ This was a dream & vision that God gave me last year on March 24th, 2020. Then, I only shared it w/ 2 other ppl, that I recall.

I saw a man in white robe with a sword in his hand fighting against an enemy. Two young women were standing beside him, one on each side. ...
2/ Fire and smoke shot toward them, and a head appeared from the midst of the smoke. The head was that of a dragon. The head of the dragon had two horns on his head like an antelope. The dragon told the man that he cannot defeat him or protect the two women. The man replied ...
3/ to the dragon, telling him that he is really weak and that he only gets his power by speaking lies. The dragon became enraged and replied, "I will show you my power and strength." The two women told the man that they will help him. The man thanked the women, and he gave ...

The First Five Centuries of the Papacy:

Are there a few Bishops, specifically Popes, that asserted Papal Supremacy or things that can be inferred as such? Of course. However, what we see is their claims were consistently, and often definitively, rejected.
2nd Century: Saint Pope Victor I excommunicated churches in Asia Minor over the date of Easter.

Eusebius recounts this was rejected by all and later the issue was decided in Nicea I, showing that the Church recognized the council was the final arbiter in these matters.
3rd Century: Saint Pope Stephen I excommunicated Saints Cyprian and Firmilian over their doctrine on Baptism.

North African council rejects Stephen, Saint Dionysus of Alexandria rejects Stephen, and Firmilian claims the “eastern churches” rejected Stephen.

#Lebanon #Beirut #Church #emigration

After last August's explosion in Lebanon, hundreds of thousands of Christians are trying to flee Lebanon, creating concerns for the future of the Church there.
Father Jad Chlouk, parish priest of Saint George's Maronite Cathedral in Beirut, told the Catholic charity Help to the Church in Need (ACN) in an interview with the press that Christians felt alienated from their homeland.
The Lebanese media estimated that around 380,000 applications for immigration were made following the blast. Father Chlouk emphasized how Christian numbers have plummeted in the Middle East.

#Pope Honorius I (625-638) was condemned and excommunicated for heresy by the sixth general council in 680. Stephen VI (896-89) had the body of his predecessor Pope Formosus exhumed and put on trial (this is the famous cadaver synod) for his unbecoming conduct during his tenure.
Stephen had Formosa's papal vestments removed and two fingers from his right hand cut off. Formosa's' body was thrown into the Tiber. After the synod, public opinion turned against Stephen. He was deposed in an uprising and strangled to death.
Then there was John-12 (955-964) who died a mysterious death, after having been accused of adultery & turning his pontification into a whore house. However, he had more than his match in Benedict-9 to the only man 2 have served as Pope for 3 discontinuous periods, beginning 1032.

In the 13th century, Pope Gregory IX (#Pope from 1227-1241), believed that cats had Satan himself within them . Following a Papal Bull (essentially laying down #Church doctrine), virtually everyone in Western Europe began to exterminate cats. #Christmas #Christianity
Thousands were accused of #witches or devil worshipers, and either tortured, killed or both. The cat genocide petered out following Gregory death, but the gory tradition remained alive. #Christmas #Christianity
During another witch hunting frenzy in the late 1400s, cats were killed en masse again, as a part of Church’s war against #Satan. Killing of cats on such a massive scale, resulted in a huge increase in rat population in #Europe. #Christmas #Christianity

1. Faith is meant for spiritual things.

Faith is misused and abused.

Using faith on earth w/o rigorous testing is damaging that what God gave you to connect you to Him.
2. Think of #Gambling...doesn't the house always win?

What is going through the mind of those who sit at the #SlotMachines?

Whoa!!!!!!! Think of the #Internet.

Shouldn't we #GuardYourHeart?

What of #Hope?

I often think of the #BookOfJob #OldTestament.
3. Are you tossed around by the wind and waves?

Ephesians 4:14
"Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming."

The #Math that has always worked for science is normal Indian math. But #India today continues to teach superstition-infused European math to millions of students without scrutiny.

A #thread on the urgent need for #decolonizing Indian education, based on #CKRaju's writings.
Normal Indian math accepts empirical proofs. For example '1 apple + 1 apple = 2 apples' is 'empirical' because you can see it.

Empirical (adjective)= verifiable by observation or experience rather than theory or pure logic
But formal european math accepts only axiomatic reasoning (reasoning without facts). Worse, it prohibits empirical proofs.

Axiom (noun)- a proposition which is regarded as self-evidently true.

Shocked by terror attack today @ a #church in #Nice #France

Condemnations NOT enough

We must recognize grave #humanrights impact of fundamentalisms incl Islamism & support those-incl MANY of #Muslim heritage- who counter such ideologies which foster this awful violence
Thread
Let's be clear

Misinformed coverage of events in #France by much English-language media, conflating Islamism & Islam, & suggesting it is anti-Muslim to challenge political organizations which support Islamist ideology, makes more terrorism more likely around the world
It also disregards the views of many of North African & #Muslim heritage in #France & beyond who've been leading opponents & victims of the political ideology of Islamism & have for years warned how dangerous it is but receive little support & aren't heard bit.ly/2TCEC6g

#IICSA #CofE - from a heavy heart & troubled mind, some unfinished thoughts on #risk, #leadership, #abuse & #church.
1. "I am sending you out as lambs among wolves...be as wise as serpents & as innocent as doves." Too many in #church manage the doves part - high above, unable to imagine such horrible things could be or that X could possibly be guilty. Ignorance is not holiness.
2. Holiness is more knowing, more robust, more active than that - it is the balance of the #dove & the #serpent.
Serpents crawl on the ground, taste the air, sense vibrations, they know when all is not well. If our leaders are truly humble this is the space they will occupy.
