  1. I was talking in a general manner, not specific examples or anything that you did. Just some general guidelines, I didn't claim that martial arts would a form of occultism. That's good to hear! I have learned about the use of relaxation techniques in a Prayer and Life Workshop, that I did a while ago.
  2. I am not familiar with martial arts. But speaking in a general sense, there's nothing wrong with physical training and self-discipline, and neither with defending yourself. The body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and taking care of yourself is also a form of respect. Physical and mental discipline are good, and can help one to better serve God. Anyways the first commandment always apply. One mustn't put anything above God, whether it's some occult spirit or even oneself (i.e. Narcissism), because nothing except God can lead to supreme happiness. Clearing your mind and getting rela
  3. I think that it's important to get to some place where you are received well, and that's loyal to God, then try to get involved and helping people with events and stuff there. Plus it's better to get guidance of those who are already experienced. But more importantly, it's necessary to understand that Truth is more than just a concept, it's a living person who wants to have an active role in your life if so you allow, as God respects one's will. There are certain aspects of the faith that you only actually learn when you live through it, life experience is important.
  4. I am really sorry to hear. I would suggest to divert your attention from the source of the problem, and try to concentrate on something that you like. It's out of your hands now, and it's better to leave it on the hands of God. I am not familiar with Hinduism, so there isn't much that I can help with that. But in a general sense, I would say that learning about it IRL appears to be a better approach to me, since the religious experience is something that happens outside the Internet. What I mean here is to try reading some book or look for someone in person in order to learn. I don't know
  5. For the people that you mentioned, concepts like "diversity" and "equality" don't mean what they would normally mean. They are buzzwords to justify whatever agenda they want to justify. The idea that people are equal actually comes from Christianity, and here it means that everyone is created in the image of God (not the other way around), their life is valuable, they have the same dignity, are as much sons of God as each other, and have the same fundamental rights. All of this regardless of condition or place of birth, gender, age, beliefs, or anything else we would use to segregate peop
  6. I am sorry to hear. Even Jesus himself was prosecuted, and he warned that we (Christians) would also be prosecuted in his name. But God is always guiding us in some form or another, and everything in the end concurs for the good of those who love him.
  7. Everyone is welcome here By the way, I am Catholic too.
  8. Merry Christmas to you, friend!

  10. I missed the status you left on my feed some time ago, I am really sorry. I have responded to it :)

  11. Happy Pentecost! Thank you, @PiratePony . Today at my church I had a nice surprise. There's an old lady of our community who I visit sometimes, she is sick so she couldn't come much to church. However today she managed to come, and she sit next to me. She really likes coming, and I am really glad for her.
  12. Thank you very much! Hopefully it should be a great week, I like this time of the year.
  13. I can say that I understand your feeling, however it’s better to not judge other people since usually it’s not possible to know what they went through or are thinking. Also, I presume that you feel this way because you were unfairly treated by some other atheists, but it’s better to not continue the vicious cycle. Despite any differences between people, in the end of the day everyone is a fragile individual, we all are capable of suffering pain, hunger, cold, etc. It is important to support each other. You do not need to feel good at first, it is not about what you feel, but what you act
  14. "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father." Merry Christmas to everyone!
  15. I think that it was an well-balanced comment, given what you know about the subject. You didn't try to talk about stuff that you didn't know, you were honest about what you know and talked a bit about it.
  16. This is something that I wanted to answer long ago, but I didn't because English isn't my first language and I am not really much familiar with the English Bible translations. That being said, the Catholic English translations that look the best for me are the Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE) and the Douay-Rheims American Edition (DRA), with the former being the best of these two in my opinion. I think that a pitfall in Bible translations is trying to simplify the language, as this can end up inadvertently omitting certain nuances or even changing the original meanin
  17. Hello! Apologies for taking a bit to respond. First, I am sorry for what happened to you. That was really uncalled-for. I understand that it can give a really bad image about God, but ultimately it affects God in no shape or form and also has no bearing on his existence. Ultimately, the one who should be followed is God himself, and not those who claim to act in his name. Their purpose should be just to lead people to God, but let's not forget that people are imperfect and they can commit mistakes. Anyways, I see the idea of evolution as indifferent to the existence of God. The idea
  18. I have not been around much lately, because I was also busy with college. Tomorrow, July 4th 2017, is the defense of my PhD Thesis on Chemistry. I would like to request some prayers, so everything goes well By the way, here are some pictures of my doctorate work: https://goo.gl/photos/gGMj7m55t2yMFDNy6
  19. One reason that I do not judge people is because only God knows what actually goes inside them, specially on their innermost thoughts. What goes there may change everything, there are things that may not be readily apparent for the outsider observer, that would change everything "if only they knew or understood". Even them, with God, between Mercy and Justice, the former always prevails, as long there are still a bare minimum of good intentions. God does not blame anyone on stuff they have no control of, or that they don't even know it is wrong. Lastly, but not less important, God respects one
  20. I have started watching SpongeBob back when it started airing, this show still brings me good memories! Currently it has been some time since I last watched it, but I still hold the show in a good regard. My favorite episode of them all is the one of the Imagination Box. It's the one that best exemplifies a child's innocence, and I say that in a positive manner. Anyways, if you want to catch up with the show, here is all the episodes at the same time, lol: See you all around!
  21. I am from São Paulo, Brazil. Nice to meet you
  22. That is fine, @zerox. Those militant people seems to be unable to realize that things are more complicated that people just being A or B, there are much more nuances and differences than what they give credit for. Being misunderstood or falsely accused of lying is really annoying. From what I can notice, they are rather seeking some sort of "social approval" by defending some cause, than actually being interested on discussing things. About your question, yes, you could say that I am interested. I have been interested on discussions about having or not faith for quite sometime. Personally
  23. No. Science cannot prove even the validity of its own methods, as this would be circular reasoning and neither the existence of its own object of study, which are the laws of nature. The scientific method by it's turn comes from Philosophy, which has an influence of Christian Theology, more specifically the belief that there is an immutable absolute truth that can be reached by our mind. Without this premise it would not be possible to make predictions from know facts, which is one of the most celebrated features of the scientific method. And it is beyond science to prove this premise because
  24. I like Gregorian Chants, and those are some for the Easter season:
