Weekly Mass Discussion Thread #32

!catholics !christians happy Third Sunday of Easter!

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

First Reading

Peter said to the people:

"The God of Abraham,

the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob,

the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus,

whom you handed over and denied in Pilate's presence

when he had decided to release him.

You denied the Holy and Righteous One

and asked that a murderer be released to you.

The author of life you put to death,

but God raised him from the dead; of this we are witnesses.

Now I know, brothers,

that you acted out of ignorance, just as your leaders did;

but God has thus brought to fulfillment

what he had announced beforehand

through the mouth of all the prophets,

that his Christ would suffer.

Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be wiped away."

-Acts 3:13-15, 17-19

Second Reading

My children, I am writing this to you

so that you may not commit sin.

But if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate with the Father,

Jesus Christ the righteous one.

He is expiation for our sins,

and not for our sins only but for those of the whole world.

The way we may be sure that we know him is to keep

his commandments.

Those who say, "I know him," but do not keep his commandments

are liars, and the truth is not in them.

But whoever keeps his word,

the love of God is truly perfected in him.

-1 John 2:1-5a

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

Alleluiah

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Lord Jesus, open the Scriptures to us;

make our hearts burn while you speak to us.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

-Luke 24:32

Gospel

The two disciples recounted what had taken place on the way,

and how Jesus was made known to them

in the breaking of bread.

While they were still speaking about this,

he stood in their midst and said to them,

"Peace be with you."

But they were startled and terrified

and thought that they were seeing a ghost.

Then he said to them, "Why are you troubled?

And why do questions arise in your hearts?

Look at my hands and my feet, that it is I myself.

Touch me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones

as you can see I have."

And as he said this,

he showed them his hands and his feet.

While they were still incredulous for joy and were amazed,

he asked them, "Have you anything here to eat?"

They gave him a piece of baked fish;

he took it and ate it in front of them.

He said to them,

"These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you,

that everything written about me in the law of Moses

and in the prophets and psalms must be fulfilled."

Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.

And he said to them,

"Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer

and rise from the dead on the third day

and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins,

would be preached in his name

to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.

You are witnesses of these things."

-Luke 24:35-48

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

The last few lines of the second reading stuck out to me. While God is merciful, those who flaunt his laws blatantly while speaking of how much they love them must have some deal of cognitive dissonance going on.

Note about working with Goetic Demons continued.

If you aren't comfortable with Goetic Demons due to your religious background, up-ringing, etc. I'm not requiring you too.

The same techniques can be used to work with or call upon any other type of spirit such as angels.

I just want to say something from my experience, Angels and Demons aren't contradictory and you can work with both. Angels are fine if you work with demons and vice versa, and they often work together on similar goals. They aren't in opposition. My experience with demons, is that they have tended to be benevolent, and when working with Archangel Michael, I asked him about Lucifer and he told me "I consider Lucifer to be a friend". It's ideal to think beyond the religious dogma that classifies spirits as "Good" or "Evil", "Right Hand" or "Left Hand" dichotomy, but I'm not expecting someone to do something they aren't comfortable doing.

If you ask me what the difference is between Angels, Demons, Gods, etc. I would say after working with them "I have no idea", Demons were just Gods that were demonized by Judeo-Christian mythology.

After building a relationship with Demons, they will often let you know what God they were before they were demonized.

One thing I've wondered about Church Christianity is when the words or Paul contridict with the teachings of Jesus, they seem to reject Jesus and take the words of Paul?

Jesus taught to sinners. I would argue that Judas wasn't a great example of someone who was free of sin.

It's too easy just to be like "Oh, Paul wrote the word of God" when he wrote his letters so Paul is equivalent to Jesus, and I think it is a logical error. We might as well be building altars and worshipping Paul if we are just going to reject Jesus.

My personal opinion is that Paul corrupted Christianity and led the religion astray.

Is Paul equivalent to Jesus? If not then how do you explain the many many contradictions between their writing and teachings? Either the word of Jesus was the word or God or the word of Paul was? They can't both be true.

This is why I reject Paul's writings almost entirely in my path, and I definately don't do what the Church does and prioritize above the teachings of Jesus when they do contridict.

This thread I am looking for a respectful debate.

ISW comment about Ukraine Chasiv Yar

ISW is neither forecasting that Russian forces will seize Chasiv Yar nor forecasting that Russian forces will be able to threaten or even seize Kostyantynivka or Druzhkivka.

https://twitter.com/visegrad24/status/1778032218272563664

Russian jets are flying above Chasiv Yar, Russian didn't had this in Bakhmut or Avdiivka so the city is as good as gone. Its also not a city that is easy defendable.

So bitches are getting paid to be objective and they are dropping this bs that they ain't forecasting, why are they getting to paid ?

@pizzashill you need to do thots patrol in ISW

Think like a doctor #Ive given up faith in humanity

Patient presents with previous hx of AMLM3, pancytopenia, and required blood transfusions from previous doctor for followup. To keep this what was diagnosed? Just to save us some time, it's not AIDS, HIV, lupus and just a hematological disorder.

Just to make sure you r-slurs give a proper response, he had AMLM3 and in playing some bullshit wrong information game it is AMLM3

@QuakerOats I know you know more about foid magic and rituals than I do due to having more experience in this aspect of Magick, and I am really interested in learning more about the esoteric and I appreciate your knowledge on these things.

You mentioned getting frustrated by helping me so I have a proposition. I am not schizophrenic. I am enlightened. I know the mysteries of the universe but having seen all that exists and all that doesn't exists and having the comprehension of the consciousness of Gods who can predict what is going to occur months down the line by predicting how an action will lead to a reaction via a sort of butterfly effect months or years down the line does make me a little eccentric. Gods don't predict the future, they predict actions and can read and analyze how an action will have an effect.

If I take my antipsychotics, which do inhibit my psychic abilities and work on developing a more mundane awareness of the universe, will you keep on sharing with me your tips on rituals?

If you don't, it's no big deal, I can get makeup tips by summoning Azazel, a fallen angel from the book of Enoch who taught humans the secrets of cosmetics. It's just easier to ask you directly for makeup advice.

I really :marseythinkorino2: need your help but i can't tell you why

I really :marseythinkorino2: need some help and I'm pretty :marseyglam: sure this site is the best place :marseychtorrr: to get it. Let me explain I am a former redditor :marseysoyjak: and i have recently become very concerned :marseysad: that reddit :marseyupmarsey: is not helpful :marseyeskimo: enough :marseyitsallsotiresome: so i was looking :marseyviewerstare: for a more helpful :marseyeskimo: group :marseymarseyloveorgy: of people and someone told me i was being rslurred :marseypaintretard: so i Google :marseygetgle: that and find this place.

I'm pretty :marseyglam: sure you guys are going :marseysal2: to help me out a lot which is great. Thank you for that. I'm happy :marseyexcitedexosuit: i finally found :marseymimic: a nice group :marseymarseyloveorgy: of people on the internet :marseytrogdor: who i can lean on in hard times.

Yesterday i got pizza sauce on my favorite :mersya: shirt and it almost broke me, but it didn't. Next time i mess up like that i promise I will tell you first :marseywinner: instead of climbing :marseymountaineer: out on a ledge and blowing :marseygeisha: it out of proportion. It's just pizza.

I love you.

When I need help then sometimes I turn towards Goetic Demons, to choose and know when a Goetic demon is wanting to work with you, then it's best to open your mind and look for an intuitive sense if you are drawn to any. Here is a list of Goetic Demons here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_demons_in_the_Ars_Goetia

Now one mistake people make when working with Goetic Demons is that they use the ritual described in the Ars Goetia, don't! It's just likely to piss demons off, and considering that there are pages that are lost in the Vatican, and it's an incomplete method, they can break through. Don't use circles, don't use binding, it's more likely to piss them off, because it shows a lack of trust in them.

As Magick is primarily Will + Intention, then it's a lot easier to use Meditation, Prayer and enn chants to invoke. A little thing about enn chants, is that they are most likely bullshit, but they work because Magick is Will +Intention. After a few minutes you'll start to feel a sort of energy, people channel in different ways, for me it is intuition + energy.

In terms and regards to social connections and influencing people, I recommend Duke Dantallion.

>Dantalion (or Dantalian) is a powerful Great Duke of Heck, with thirty-six legions of demons under his command; he is the 71st of 72 spirits of Solomon. He teaches all arts and sciences, and also declares the secret counsel of anyone, given that he knows the thoughts of all people and can change them at his will. He can also cause love and show the similitude of any person, show the same by means of a vision, and let them be in any part of the world they will. He is depicted as a man with many appearances, which means the faces of all men and women. There are also many depictions in which he is said to hold a book in one of his hands.

Now one thing people misunderstand about Magick is that Magick follows and obeys natural laws, it takes the path of least resistance. If you need money, it's not going to materialize in front of you, but it's more likely that you will receive a job offer, or receive a sudden gift from a friend.

!actualbiofoids

This is how you can use Goetic Magick and learn from demons. I want to say something about demons, is that they love to give tests and challenges to help improve your situation. They know what the result is going to be before they give them, sometimes you feel. They aren't easy spirits to work with, but put in the work and you'll receive in kind.

Here are some videos of Dantallions enn:
