IXOYE my profile pic. <><

Is more than a bumpter sticker.

I is for joshua, the name the Messiah's mother called him by.
X is for Christ, the title that Joshua held.
O is the theta (minus the middle character like the pic) for God, theos.
Y is for the upsilon that is the S in Savior.
E is for the sigma the S in Son.

It's pronounced summ'n like IXTHYS or Ikthys.
In Greek its the word for Fish. Thus the <><

The X is the sign for Christ on CONSTANTINES banner/sigil

The martyrs our Church was founded on the backs of, died when caught using that symbol for Christ. It's certainly more holy than using the cross and it's symbol. There are people that worship the cross around their neck on their bumper more than the Christ.

I know the background. I just prefer to see Christianity spelled out.

And I cringe when folks make the big deal publically out of the X in Xmas and such. It makes the whole faith look, dense, and minute. Granted from your answer you probably wouldn't fall into that crowd. Making X a big dea has only existed for about 100 years, not quite even that yet. Nothing like crossing off a false issue before it gets to becoming doctrine.

AND, I owe you a soda or summ'n for this one.... I've used it more than once lately.

Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.

So, I should just make the thread read, take pot shots at the initiator, instead of seeking discussion on a particular topic. I'll make not of that.
 
Many words - but they dont say much - just an attempt to be heard and make more confusion.

Hetrodoxical is quite simply, deliberately going against the current doctrine to create dispute and cast confusion. Hence your second name Pugilist which means two fisted boxer.

Your first name interestingly comes from Taoism - Eastern enlightenment.

You have the dictionary of Kevin as your source. My first name doesn't come from Taoism. To deny the explanation I gave above, the picture on my profile, and such to say such a thing is a blatant malicious lie. Doesn't speak much for you from my perspective. ALTHOUGH in college I had a great debate at the student union with a Taoist.

What the church today claims is conservative and orthodox is 150 years old for most parts, and only 400 for the rest. (assuming you aren't Catholic.)

So by your own definitions, all of the reformation are heterodoxical.

Read any book regarding Church History.

For the record, statements like, "Many words - but they dont say much - just an attempt to be heard and make more confusion." Are really hard for me to not respond to in like tone. They don't further the conversation. In fact the only thing they do is show you presume to have it all right thus making your own opinion the only one acceptable.
 
What is going on here?.

Kevin is the one who decided that there was a certain kind of "theology" in what I wrote.

Are you CONSTANTLY judgemental deciding and evaluating everything and everyone, Kevin?......(a bit of control freak narcisissm there).

There have always been secret societies that are religious-based (example....the Jesuits are not so "secret", but there are covert extremist aspects to their operations).

We need not discuss how the Vatican bank launders money or how the Vatican clergy owns stock in PORNOGRAPHY PUBLISHING companies, or how the pope has to handle all the pedophile lawsuits (maybe with a lot of aspirin and constant headaches), but you see how this "IXOYE" stuff is kept "secret" (why???). Anyway, I don't know OR CARE about any belief or theology other than "Christ and Him crucified" ("the doctrine of Christ")....it was a wise decision that Paul made.

Kevin, you're going to get yourself into a lot of jams all throughout life if you always jump the gun and be a 'GREAT DECIDER' about what peoples' speech 'SOUNDS' LIKE (as if the SOUND of what I write is SIMILAR TO the "heterodoxical" something).

I don't know or care about ANYTHING except the doctrine/teaching about Jesus).

Ixoye wasn't kept secret, idiot. Its the symbol the members of the Way used to id themselves without being fed to the lions. You spit in the face of all those who died building the church. Correct your comment, you don't care about anything fact or fiction if it doesn't fit into your box.
 
IDIOT!!!!!.....(oh "Christian", oh "Christian", you show your idea of "holiness" without shame).

It's typical of darkness to get DEFENSIVE and claim that the darkness was never kept a secret. Darkness never really has any defense for itself except to make a claim without also making a clear and unmistable case for the defense of the claim (you failed to justify your claim beyond offering a simple blanket statement).......and so you quickly got upset and called me an idiot, is that all you got?, how pitiful,........(what are you going to do next, CRY?).

....darkness is weak and fragile, it can't survive injury or even challenge.

...and how dare you claim that "the Way" is to be associated with your "IXOYE".

Of course you want to shout "the Way" in your defense,.....yet you failed to mention "the Way" until "the Way" had already been mentioned (no secrecy????).

Be smart darkness, don't attack me, I was taught by The Almighty.

??? You think telling someone when they are being an idiot is un xian. Paul wished men would castrate themselves, christ issued the worse curse possible to the pharisees, paul "cussed" while he was "preaching". You guys have slandered me, lied about my faith, my statements etc.... but you want to make some superficial cry on using the word idiot? What a fraudulent spirit you present. I would rather present a true representation of my spirit than pretend I am what I am not.

I was just slandered out of ignorance, naievely, or deliberately misleading and maliciously, and you are worried about one five letter word.

Whatever you have to do to justify your false representations, knock yourself out. If the ru
Es here allow that, then me calling you an idiot for being an idiot should be mild by comparison.

Since arriving here my faith has been misrepresented, lied about, ignored and attacked me with strawmen, and I've been your target, and told to slow down, when YOU have been the instigators in every instance. Why not name this the good ole boy back patting forum and be honest about your affinity to praising anyone who will gang up on people with you.

If you are Xian, I can assure you, I am not, and will never be. Any "name" I have called ANYONE in the last 25 years, was only after that behavior or condition was met. Me observing you and stating what I observe, is honest.

You just lied out of your non eating orofice about me and the fish the martyrs of the church died for.

I am wrong at times, but I strive to not misrepresent and never to lie about a person's beha ior. When you can say that with a straight facek have someone tell me to take your butt off ignore, fraud.
