Today's Slander of St. Paisios from Those in the Church

The falsehood of a supposed letter from St. Porphyrios chastising St. Paisios

Some have made mention of an alleged letter written by St. Porphyrios to St. Paisios the Athonite. In their ignorance, this non-existent “letter” is used to slander St. Paisios the Athonite. The basic accusation is that St. Paisios was not discerning of the times, but undiscerning and excessive, and even that he was influenced by Protestant publications (!) or talking points to form his teaching on...

Obedience is to the truth when the "Church" is not Orthodox.

Ieromonah Savatie Bastovoi

All the cases of total obedience reported in patristic literature refer to patience with humility of all kinds, not to submission to an unjust dogmatic or moral position.

Obedience ceases where unrighteousness and falsehood intervene, for love, which I have said is the condition of evangelical obedience, enjoys only truth. Obedience is not only along hierarchical lines, but above all, along the...

The Church is the Body of Christ and not a government agency!

Perennialism: The End of Ecumenism & The Transcendent Unity of Religions

Protopresbyter Peter Heers, D.Th, Lecturer in Ecclesiology, Holy Trinity Seminary, Jordanville, NY

Introduction: The Devil’s Dichotomies and Their End

A tried and constant tactic of the enemy of mankind’s salvation in Christ is to limit man’s choices to two options, which are seemingly opposed, and to block from view any other possibility, or rule it out as impractical or untenable. For example, one is either rational or irrational, supra-rational not being an option. Or, one...

Τὸ Τέλος τοῦ Οἰκουμενισμοῦ καὶ ἡ Ὑπερβατικὴ Ἑνότητα τῶν Θρησκειῶν

Πρωτοπρεσβυτέρου Πέτρου Χῖρς, D.Th., Θεολογικὴ Σχολὴ Ἁγίας Τριάδος, Τζόρντανβιλ Νέας Ὑόρκης

Εἰσαγωγή: Οἱ Ἀκρότητες τοῦ Διαβόλου καὶ τὸ Τέλος τους

Δοκιμασμένη καὶ σταθερὴ τακτικὴ τοῦ ἐχθροῦ τῆς ἐν Χριστῷ σωτηρίας τοῦ ἀνθρώπου εἶναι ὁ περιορισμὸς τῶν ἐπιλογῶν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου σὲ δύο μόνο ἐπιλογές, φαινομενικὰ ἀντίθετες, καὶ ὁ ἀποκλεισμὸς καὶ ἡ ἀπόκρυψη κάθε ἄλλης δυνατότητας, ἢ τοὐλάχιστον ἡ ἀπόῤῥιψή της ὡς ἀνέφικτης ἢ ἀστήρικτης. Παραδείγματος χάριν, μπορεῖ νὰ εἶναι κανεὶς...

A True Story of Evil in NYC & The Christian Social Ethic

There once appeared in one of New York City’s newspapers a small article entitled “Child-killer.” This article stated that in a little hotel on West 84th Street there occurred a frightening event, a horrible crime—a mother beat to death her two-year old son. The brief details recounted in the article only magnify the horror of this cruel act. And what were the details? This time, even the...

Fr. Ioannis Drongitis on Covidism

Interview in Four Parts

If you are in Fr. Demetrios Carellas’ email group, you will have noticed a four-part presentation of interviews by Fr. Ioannis Drongitis from October 3rd to October 7th. These reveal, to the English-speaking world, this priest who was not known before but we now hear boldly and “as one having authority” (cf. Matthew 7:29) confessing the truth of the spiritual matters on which many...

Homily on Christ Walking on the Water

by Fr. Peter Heers

On the 9th Sunday after Pentecost 2021, the Holy Church of Christ commemorates the miracle of Christ walking on the water. In this homily, Fr. Peter speaks about the relationship between fear and faith, how St. Peter's example informs us today, the covidism and totalitarianism that are on the rise, and calls us to trust the Lord, the great Pedagoge, first and foremost in everything we do. So much in this...
