THE WATER-SOLUBLE SHEPHERDS

May 31, 2017

Rev. Vasileios Thermos

Without underestimating the pain of persecuted Christians, I am deeply disappointed by the comments I read. Those brothers and sisters seem to forget that all human beings are children of our Father. They also seem to ignore that Christ Himself was merciful to foreigners (Canaanite woman, Roman officer) and that He used images of foreigners (Good Samaritan) in parables to teach us about equality of all and that sometimes Christians betray what they are called for.

I am also concerned about the rise of nationalism throughout the Orthodox Church. This is a betrayal of the Gospel. A narrow-hearted, scared, bitter Christianity is a sign of an insecure faith. Let’s pray for our ecclesiastical body which neglect their mission

A Sinner

“I pray for them: I pray NOT for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.”

Thus says the Lord!

The Lord Who showed mercy to the centurion and the Canaanite woman BECAUSE of their faith in Him.

A faith so great that the Lord stated He had not find in Israel, in the case of the Roman centurion.

A faith so great to consent humbly to be compared to dogs by the Lord, in the case of the Canaanite woman.

Let’s pray that reverend clergymen comfortably sitting in the fat belly of Babylon will stop talking about what they do not understand!

Clergymen always refusing to call the unrepentant world by its name, yet always ready to judge their brothers for reminding them the Word of the Lord.

Clergymen even daring to rebuke the Holy Spirit and to charge the apostles with abusive misogyny.

Clergymen claiming that all men are children of God. The vanity of their heart pushes them to pursue and appease the spirit of the world, so that they are able to utter such theological idiocies.

All men are CREATURES of God! There is only One Son and many adopted children of God, but none of these adopted children can be found outside Christianity.

Water-soluble clergymen….. Saint Paisios the Athonite spoke of them and of the flock they corrupt.

The Lord rebukes them! Their fruits are always the loss of the soul of the Nation.

THE FEMINIST PRIEST

May 31, 2017

This is a silence that has existed for centuries in the Church, it has become part of the sad tradition of the Church.

Fr. Ted Bobosh

The sad tradition of the Church!?? Are you rebuking the Holy Spirit?

We, the Church, honor a woman as the most glorious creature, above every created person and angels: the Most Holy Theotokos.

Above Her glory for us there is only the Triune God.

Yet all Her preaching was only a few words: “Everything He says to you, DO IT!”
A few words which reveal Her as above every theologian.

The Lord rebuked the apostles and chose women as the first witnesses of His Resurrection, yet He ordained no woman (as God has NEVER done!).
He loved them, as the Church does; there is no silence, we sing their praises continually.

Yet now a priest caught in feminist itches declares he loves them more than Christ and His Church. The Lord and His Church should apologize to the world, first of all to him, of course, a poor soul suffering in the sad tradition of the Church. Sad, he’s said just so, “the sad tradition of the Church”. He has called the work of the Holy Spirit sad…..

May the Lord burn his tongue, if he does not repent!

He gives us the example of St. Paul, obviously forgetting that St. Paul states that women must keep silent in the Church and must cover their heads. When he will remember it, he will inform us, the Church, that he loves women even more than St. Paul.

He speaks of deaconesses, without evidently knowing what they were: they WERE NOT female deacons. But he SHOULD know it!

May the Holy Myrrhbearers preserve us with their prayers from Orthodisneyland and its bizarre preachers!

Of course, their fear of the apostles exists only in the crooked mind of a priest who should be severely reprimanded by his bishop, a priest who dared ask for metanoia from the Holy Spirit.

Find the tomb of your Lord empty and see an angel saying you that He is resurrected, and be sure that you will be filled with fear. Fear of Divine things, too big for you, which you don’t even really understand.
Even the apostles were afraid at first when they saw the resurrected Lord.

His innuendos are shameful, as if alluding to a habit of abuse by the apostles (and the Church after them) of faithful women. They were even worse than those who crucified the Lord, according to his brays, for the holy women were not afraid to stand by the Cross or to go to the tomb, but they were afraid of the Lord’s chosen ones.

This is pure poison injected in the little ones! His blasphemous mouth stopped just short before requiring some kind of affirmative action in the name of gender equality.

Maybe he don’t, but we know of what spirit he is!

SEVENTH SUNDAY OF PASCHA

The Fathers of the First Ecumenical Council

San Nicola vs Ario

Once upon a time, heresies were a tragedy. Today they are a farce!

Here we have an Orthodox Patriarch with a doctorate in Evangelical Theology and History.

Saint Nicholas did slap Arius in the face then; today he will simply let that a laugh bury Bartholomew.

MORONS IN UNSUSPECTED PLACES

May 23, 2017

As Collins relates, going to other galaxies is problematic for humans because of the obviously brief lifespan, but what about AI?

Jay Dyer

Well, going to other galaxies is problematic, indeed, for the very simple fact that there are no galaxies outside the fictions and the artists’ impressions produced by NASA & associates, and propagandized by modern snake oil salesmen (they call them scientists, however).

Anyway, that ludicrous scam is the idol that nobody is willing to renounce, including smart people who have come near the Truth, thanks just to their smartness. Yet, that idol is the most easy to smash, just a few days of research would suffice.

The problem is that, usually, these smart people think that their progress towards the Truth comes by their own merits, so that they stay fundamentally unchurched and bound in the wisdom of the world. The funny end is that their vast knowledge ties them even better to the most idiotic thing born out of the fallen human mind: the spinning-ball shooting across an infinite universe populated by stellar systems bound together by magic (they call it gravity, however).

Failing to call unceasingly for the Lord’s mercy, they remain blind to Whom belong all knowledge, so that they are doomed, in the best case, to stay entrapped in the dialectical mirror games they denounce.

The irresistible lightness of the world….

Their recurrent report about the Artificial Intelligence scarecrow is no less ambiguous. It’s perplexing their belief in the possibility for man to create an artificial (autonomous) will: you need a person to have a will and only God can create a person!

Machines without mankind are just empty shell, and they will stay that way.

Sometimes I even fear that these smart people’s keen immersion in deep looks at the darkness has lesser to do with their love for the Truth than with a hidden hope for the darkness to look back at them.

NOTA BENE – When I say “smart people”, it is said without any irony. The author in case is among the soundest philosophers in circulation today.

LA STRANA TEOLOGIA DI PADRE GIOVANNI ROMANIDES

May 18, 2017

Padre Giovanni Romanides, pur avendo indubbi meriti come storico, e’ estremamente pericoloso da seguire quando si addentra nel campo teologico. Questa sua affermazione:

“Following Saint Paul and the gospel of John, the Fathers support that those who do not see the resurrected Christ in glory in this life, either in a mirror dimly by unceasing prayers and psalms in the heart, or face to face in glorification, will see his glory as eternal and consuming fire and outer darkness in the next life.”

e’ talmente assurda da chiedersi se provenga realmente da un Cristiano. Essa non e’ solo un’eresia, ma la piu’ pericolosa delle eresie.

………… Read More

Questa e’ empieta’ allo stato puro! Ed e’ purtroppo solo la punta dell’iceberg eretico rintracciabile in molti punti dell’opera di padre Giovanni Romanides.

THE CROSS AND THE RESURRECTION

May 13, 2017

“Why did Jesus have to die?”

Presbytera Jeannie tries here to answer the question above from one of her students.

However, I would not say that simply stating that Christ had to die to destroy death answers satisfactorily the question of that student.

He could now ask: “Ok, but why God could not simply destroy death without Christ dying?”
He is the Almighty, after all.

Yes, and the Almighty has no use for slaves!

The answer is in the fact that God cannot deny Himself. He made men in His image, and this means above all that He made us free, free to choose, and this freedom must be preserved at any cost.

Man must be free to choose life eternal, and life eternal is the voluntary submission to the will of God, out of love for Him and His statutes. It is the faith in God and His Word!

This willing submission, in spirit and truth, means the Cross in this world, which men have willingly delivered to the evil one. He died for our sins!

The Cross, that death, meant the destruction of death, because the perfect man (as Adam was called to be) is immune to its clutches.

The fallen man must die in order to avoid the perpetuation of evil and his perennial abode in sin. Death is a decree of mercy and imperium at the same time by God.

The perfect man was also the perfect God, because only the Son incarnated could accomplish that complete, voluntary and self-denying obedience.
No man after the Fall could do it.

The perfect God had to become a man, because it was man who did need His salvation.

Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

That glorification, in absolute humility, obedience and submission (to God, not to men), restored to mankind the Way shown by the Truth to Life, a hope of salvation.

Just a hope, as man must still choose, every man. God cannot deny Himself.

Life eternal is the Faith in a faithful God and His Son, His Word, the Conveyor of His Holy Spirit: our Lord Jesus Christ!

And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

NOR DID THEY REPENT OF THEIR MURDERS

May 7, 2017

Publishing this pile of garbage, a collage of rehashed lies by Kerenskian nostalgics, the editor has brought the website credibility to the same level of the credibility of the ISS.

If Gregory was innocent, then they, the ideologues of the anti-Christian Western world, therefore most of the Russian aristocracy and the State Duma, most of the generals and even some clergy, most of the journalists and most of the people, as well as the Western-founded Soviet State, are guilty of slandering him, murdering him and are also guilty of the murder of the canonized Imperial Family. Guilty too are all who believed in the lies without question and all who continue to believe in these money-making (money is always a motive for evil) lies and myths and even spread them. After all, these are the people who three months after the murder, on Kerensky’s Masonic orders, dug up Gregory Rasputin’s corpse and on 11 March 1917 incinerated it.

Was this the act the act of Orthodox Christians or any other Christians? Was this the act of Christian patriots who loved the Tsar, the Little Father? Who could have carried out such a blasphemous act, but apostates, occultists and anti-Christian secularists? Even if all or just part of what they claimed had been true, would that have justified such profound hatred for a corpse? Nobody has done this or even proposed to do this with the corpse of the Bolshevik mass murderer and blasphemer Lenin, which, amazingly, still lies in its chemical soup in Moscow. Surely the only people who could have carried out this act were atheists and satanists. However, in some sense, all who continue to spread these slanders are indirectly taking part in this same blasphemy.

……………

Through Gregory Rasputin we see exactly who were the enemies of Russia and of the ideals of Holy Rus: all those who believed in and spread the slanders about him and the Imperial Family. The fact that many of these were treacherous and jealous members of the Romanov Family and other millionaire aristocrats makes no difference. Nor does the fact that among these were most of the generals and also senior members of the clergy like Protopresbyter George Shavelsky. The fact that, as Prince N. D. Zhevakhov, the deputy lay head of the Holy Synod, revealed over 90 years ago, Gregory Rasputin was murdered by British spies makes no difference. They could not have operated without the widespread and even popular support for such Russian traitors.

It is no secret that Gregory Rasputin had a gift of healing that medical science could only jealously acknowledge without understanding—it is a fact of history. That he had the ability to heal the Tsarevich Alexei, who could have become the greatest, most merciful and wisest of all Russian Tsars, is a fact of history. That he was a devout man of prayer and pilgrim to Jerusalem and the holy places of Russia who very well knew the Holy Scriptures, the Lives of the Saints and Orthodox services is a fact of history. That he made several prophecies about the future of Russia, the Tsardom, his own murder and the future of the world, all of which came true in detail, is a fact of history. For Gregory Rasputin knew the price of suffering, both moral and physical.

If he was innocent, then the untold suffering after December 1916 makes sense. …. still ongoing 100 years after 1916. The end to our suffering has not yet come.
