Just for Fun

So yeah, like, I'm bored man...if you are too - go have five minutes of fun.

You’re St. Justin Martyr!

You have a positive and hopeful attitude toward the world. You think that nature, history, and even the pagan philosophers were often guided by God in preparation for the Advent of the Christ. You find “seeds of the Word” in unexpected places. You’re patient and willing to explain the faith to unbelievers.

You’re Constantine The Great!

Though he did not accept baptism until the very end of his days, Constantine was the first Christian Roman Emperor. His Edict of Milan put an end to institutionalized persecution of Christians in the Empire. He convened the first ecumenical council, the Council of Nicea, to settle major doctrinal and disciplinary disputes. Though it has become fashionable to portray Constantine as a ruthless suppressor of paganism, that is a caricature, based on almost no evidence. He is better represented by one of his famous pleas for tolerance: “Let those who delight in error alike with those who believe partake of the advantages of peace … Let no one disturb another, let each man hold fast to that which his soul wishes … What each man has adopted as his persuasion, let him do no harm with this to another.” Constantine condemned “violent opposition to wicked error.” The Orthodox venerate him as a saint.

Ok, that was WAY over my poor understanding of church history. After looking up quite a bit of it, including my results on the church father part, I'm St. Jerome and Constantine the Great. (sigh over lack of education)(put on bright smile) I liked finding even part of one of Jerome's letters to read. It was about a miracle during the Inquisition. I believe in miracles and, from the trend of the letter, Jerome and I might have more in common than I imagine. However, I wonder and worry about my intense beliefs leading me into sins in some not so politically correct areas. I'm still not sure if my results are good or bad. I learned a Greek word I could gladly have gone through life without ever knowing. And since I don't know enough to understand the results I'm wondering what they imply about my character. (And please understand that all of that was said with a smile and a few chuckles.)

Confused wishes for Peace! LOL
