What do Protestants think of John 6:51-56, Acts 2:38, John 20:21-23, John 3:5, James 2:24 and 2 Thess 2:15?
Jesus was just explaining the Jewish Sader custom.The dogma of Transubstantiation was not even officially defined until 1551 at the Council of Trent.
It has nothing to do with true Christianjty
Mm, the doctrine that the bread is truly Christ's Body and the wine truly his blood definitely has to do with Christianity. The Orthodox subscribe to it and have long before the schism, in fact since the early Church. Paul said if you partake without discerning this, you do so to your condemnation.
What's the general consensus here about the samurai?
How is Christianity more life-affirming than what this guy had to say?
>commandments, "thou shalt not"
>it's okay if you suffer lol bcuz heaven
I can't think of any of the core tenets of Christianity that aren't just pleasant lies.
Christianity was the first large philosophical movement in the West that made a virtue out of suffering.
Suffering is not simple "OK" because it will be offset by pleasure at some point. Pain and suffering are GIFTS that we must learn to accept, and a source of evil is that we reject them.

Do you guys think that land warfare and naval warfare attract different kinds of personalities and aptitudes? If yes, how so? As in, do you think that if you were to take all of the best Generals of history, and put them in a room with all of the best Admirals in history, do you think that the attitudes and behavior etc of the groups would be different from each other? Bumping with pics.
Why is genocide a modern thing? Considering we have been doing this thing for ever, why is it so 'evil' in today's standard?
Because most people today live comfortably enough to care about other people they haven't even met in person. Today it's all about muh feels.
It my have been done on a much larger scale more recently, but tribal warfare and slaughtering masses because they're simply not like or a part of the killing party has been a thing for a while. Especially in the "a part of" context. Territorial behavior between packs of the same species is definitely not unheard of.
Any historical figure you want a big movie about?
Any that you feel are underappreciated by the hollywood hacks?
Pic related is my answer. Violent abolitionist who was destined by god to overthrow the system of slavery. Supposedly wielded a scottish claymore in battle.

Who would win in a street fight?
Does the bible support the existance of dinosaurs?

How come people were able to figure out complex mathematics thousands of years before figuring out basic ways of figuring out the world around them?
Before the scientific revolution natural philosophy was little better than guessing.
the scientific revolution was more than just the Scientific Method, it was also about Instruments. Telescopes, microscopes, weights and scales, thermo-meters and sorts of other meters. Technology played a big part in the forming of "Scientific Thought". Science itself should be thought of as a technology, just like Writing or Mathematics.
Even then you could try testing the bullshit that was thought for thousands of years.
Doctors for example would as often harm you as much if not more than help.
You could have tested methods to see the chances of death.
