The Inseparable Union of Dogma and Ethos & How Christianity is a Kingdom and Not a Religion

Elder Athanasios Mitilinaios, Excerpt from Lesson 7 on Revelation

When we talk about theosis, being God-like, becoming one with Christ, it means that we enter the life of God which is the very desire of the Creator before all ages.

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...
