I’m building a new reformed church that aims to return Christianity to its original state during the age of the Apostles and Church Fathers, during its original conception as a neoplatonic cult, prior to the age of state-mandated ecumenical councils, Roman interference, and the infestation of folk practices. I call it the Reconstructionist Catholic Church. I was moved to create this church based on a moment of inspiration while deep in contemplation. I chose the fractal cross as our symbol to represent the many martyrs who sprung from the true martyr, Christ.

    ECCLESIOLOGY

    1. apostolic succession. I’m an ordained Orthodox priest so I’m fully capable of continuing the Melchizedekian line. I want to reform the apostolic churches, not condemn them.
    2. The Catholic model has proven far more successful than the Eastern Orthodox one. With I as the Supreme Bishop of the Reconstructionist Catholic Church, I will appoint Archbishops and so on.
    3. No celibate clergy. Celibacy is to be upheld in monastic orders but not in the clergy.

      6/10 larp. Low effort, poor consistency. Difficult to suspend disbelief. Interesting concept anyway.

    THEOLOGY

    1. We are strict trinitarians. We differ from other churches by our adherence to a hierarchy in the divine persons: the Father emanates the Son and the Son emanates the Holy Spirit.
    2. Jesus Christ was fully God and Fully human.
    3.Souls are were created at the beginning of creation and become embodied by the reproductive process. At the last judgement, souls are either cast into outer darkness or united to God in theosis.
    4.We are saved by grace alone, through faith and works.
    5.The Bride of Christ is a literal sprit being that is the soul of all creation and from which all minds originate in.
    6.Palamite energy-essence distinction is a severe error and condemnable quasi-ditheism.
    7.We believe that the Catholic and Orthodox churches place undue respect on the human body, no doubt a pagan vestige. We hold that the body as it is now (distinct from Christ’s glorified heavenly body.) is shameful and fallen. When God clothed us in “animal skins,” this was a literal reference to the fallen flesh. Hatred of “the flesh” is no gnostic heresy, it is a fact of the christian faith expressed explicitly in the Gospels and Epistles. Materiality is an illusion crested by our fallen natures. The illusion will be broken upon the second advent of Christ.

          You're not on the right track then. Your almost relegates Christ to the status of a demigod and is therefore heretical.

            I don’t care about rationalizing God. God is a mystery, I’m happy with that. I am only concerned with the teaching of the Scripture and the primitive tradition

    1.We are strict pacifists.
    2.True veneration and praise of saints is commended but we do not pray to them.
    3.Use of images in worship is strictly forbidden. We are iconoclasts and desire to ascend above the fallen material world and its shadowy representations.
    4.We recognize all seven sacraments as they are defined by the Roman Catholic church.

      >3.Use of images in worship is strictly forbidden.
      This can be bypassed by covering the faces of the holy figures.
      Technically they are not graven images if they are not images.

        There are so many of these in America it’s sickening.

        1.We are strict pacifists.
        2.True veneration and praise of saints is commended but we do not pray to them.

        4.We recognize all seven sacraments as they are defined by the Roman Catholic church.

        >iconoclasm
        First century worshippers had highly decorated churches when they could do this directly contradicts your goal of reconstructing the pre creed faith.

        As a layman the Bride of Christ stuff strikes me as some wacky totally not incredibly heretical stuff.

        Also point 7 is mega gay, and I don’t respect a church that actively discourages taking care of the physical body.

    This already exists. It's called the Catholic Church.
