As for the Holy Grail, anywhere that was a route for the Crusaders makes sense, not even sure if King Arthur was ever a real person, or whether he was based on a real person who fought the Saxons, Heard the lady in the lake and the sword in the stone were based n Sarmatian folklore.

Personally, it'd probably have been lost/destroyed a LOOONG time ago. As Jesus spent time with the more common man, even if people recognized the divine, I doubt they could afford to sacrifice any of their dinnerware.  IF it does still exist, I'd be looking along the most common routes to/from the Crusades: France, Germany, Italy, the UK, etc.

'he'd simply have to follow the Arthurian legends and look for it either in England, Scotland, or Wales'

Perhaps also France? What is the most convincing grail explanation?

I've only ever read of it in fiction

Comment by Henry II on July 8, 2014 at 12:34am
has anyone here ever heard of the Spear Of Longinus? Im curious about it, since I heard a legend that supposedly hitler got defeated after his army lost this spear of Longinus to general Patton.

In real life Indiana Jones would probably not have had to make a journey to the Middle East to find the Holy Grail, he'd simply have to follow the Arthurian legends and look for it either in England, Scotland, or Wales.

Every time I see the pic for this group, I think "Ark of the Covenant? We don't have many people asking for those. Twenty bucks is the best I can do."

Rituals of a supportive nature.

When one hears of the occult, mythologies, and "pagan" religion, coming from the Christianized western world, it's not a good thing that comes to mind. It is, however, that most occult persons align themselves with "White magic", and even Satanism has a Ritual of Compassion, attached below... But I've done many rituals of compassion, and in the end even if you're not a MAGIC MISSILE person, it's still very comforting to one that someone took time out of their lives, did a ritual - a set…See More

Prayers and Ideas for struggling men.

I know this isn't your typical theological question, but I feel it can be helpful. I personally need some prayer. I am struggling with guidance. I seem go be having some relationship trouble. I firmly believe God put this woman in my life to be wife one day (when funds and scheduling allow), but I keep picking fights about stupid things. I would like some prayer for guidance and how I should act. Thanks guys. I hope this thread ends up being a way for all of us guys to ask for some prayers.
