I was an Orthodox inquirer 5 years ago.

Now I consider myself post-Christian and a nominal believer of Jesus, following views that closely align with Karl Barth and borderline gnostic / marcionite

        Also why are you constantly lying to yourselves rather than face the full truth of reality in front of you? Doesn’t God hate all lies and forms of lying?

          Actually, a fundamental part of all Christian theology is that God lied to Moses when He said that the Mosiatic covenant is eternal.

          I mean, I guess you could argue that God didn't realize He'd be changing His mind later, but that strikes against divine omniscience.

            One of many logical inconsistencies of manmade traditions/religions of the Bible. Orthodox Judaism is rife with this

            We all know the supernatural reality of Jesus and His Incarnation. That’s the only thing we can rest on in this physical reality

            No we dont. Its a leap of faith. Which is why it's dishonest to become a gnostic after.

            Satan knows and twists words of scripture. You have to trust Jesus above lines and verses from the Bible

            Obviously a statement made by men to dissuade anybody from believing convincing arguments that point out problems with the narrative. There are lots of power structure type concepts found in the Bible that are common tactics of cults. Alienation and things like this.

            People always follow material trinkets over Christ. Same thing is happening in American evangelicalism now the same way it had before the Reformation

            They use it to gatekeep each sect of Christianity in the end. In the end it’s about a relationship with Jesus, that is all

            I pretty much cast most of the Bible aside at this point is just being agenda riddled. But something about the sermon on the Mount still gets me. To me that is the purest aspect of the Bible and rings true with what you are saying.

            Unfortunately the vax drama and recent world politics made it x1000 more agenda-riddled. It was not as bad going to church before then

            The bible is not agenda-riddled. The people that read and profess it are - and it has mechanisms built into it to compensate for that.
            The average corrupt or ignorant human being's involvement in scripture is conquered by actively participating in the apostolic faith with all the mysteries intact. He gave us church for a reason.

            All true but there's no way you just make up the correct relationship on you're own. The institution of the church is still part of the gospel.

            For whatever un-christian agenda there may or may not be in the bible, there are ten million agendas absolutely assaulting us from outside the bible that want to discredit it. That's why it sets up the church. If you can't trust the church - you can't trust anything.

            It is not a ‘manmade tradition’. It is quite explicitly stated in Deuteronomy 4:40.

    This is a step beyond Essences-Energies distinction.

    You don’t need any form of experiencing the Uncreated Light from Essences-Energies to be saved. Since it’s none of our righteousness but Jesus Christ

            The Church Fathers provide volumes of instructions on this type of discernment. In short, by the consequences.

            Lol. It’s by manmade consensus which Church Father and their writings were included in the overall base doctrines of the early church.

            When you look at later revelations of all these saints, nuns, monks throughout history, a large chunk of it is inconsistent or contradictory with that of Revelations

            Lol. Yes. Consensus tends to be "man-made" even when it's correct.
            >a large chunk of it is inconsistent or contradictory with that of Revelations
            I have yet to see a single testimony that came to a Christian from God that contradicts Revelation. Almost none elaborate on even nearly the same topics. But I will be glad to see.

    I used to be a fundamentalist Christian myself, but understand that Christianity borrowed philosophical concepts from all over the place. These truths are true no matter who says them. Jesus is quoted as saying a lot of them. And I do believe they can be traced back to God. The problem is, the Bible also added a lot of worldly agendas of men from thousands of years ago. And these things should be disregarded. It is true that God wrote his laws on every man's heart, tho.

      An overly religious Christian is basically no different from a pagan.
      All ritual and aesthetics and muhh vibes, and a way to say how truly based and redpilled and read they really are

      The strictness should be in piety and discipline towards Christ alone. There is no individual piety nowadays in the internet era. All me me me and look how much Jesus loves and favors me!

        It's not about being "based", it's about returning to a culture that belongs to you instead of some alien invasive desert cult.

          Nothing alien about objective truth.
          Nothing wrong with it coming out of the desert.
          Paganism is entirely comprised of cult beliefs, all with prototypes of that truth which Christianity has, built into them.
          Good Christians like St.Innocent of Alaska - who brought the faith to the native alaskans by accepting the inherent beauty and wisdom of their native paganism and BUILDING upon it - recognize this.
          The more violent processes which happened during Europe's original Christianization were wrong, but they also happened simultaneously to the more peaceful way, akin to St.Innocent's method.
