Myrkhoos Posted February 20, 2019 Share Posted February 20, 2019 You know, I might just be built this way, but I have a very strong need for coherence. In the belief system. Now, my biggest problems with the Christian belief seems to be its incoherence. maybe some other info will come along, but the ideas presented are just so contradictory. I am talking here mainly of Easter Orthodox Christianity. God created man and gave him freedom of choice but he asks for unconditional obedience. Man should imitate Christ, but Christ was without sin and with full divine nature so it is impossible to imitate him. You can ask for anything but he only fulfills things which He thinks are good. Man should constantly repent, but his repentance is null without the work of Christ. In the baptism all sin is cleansed and man restored to full freedom, but he sins anyway. Humans should procreate, but their offspring inherit the sin of Adam and suffer and die. Man has a rational and a contemplative mind, but he should be obedient in all time to his elders and not use his contemplative or rational mind. Everyone should of themselves as being the worst sinner ( this is said in the prayer in Church before communion). How can everyone be the worst sinner? Sometimes praying to God does not work, but praying to saint, a being for whom all the power comes from God, does. God is extremely forgiving, but he is extremely strict and even calling someone a bad name merits the eternal torments of Hell. 2 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
