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. That is why there is a vast difference between Christianity and the average religion. Unfortunately, today most of us live Christianity as a religion and not as a kingdom, and this presents a number of problematic consequences,...

Becoming a member of the Body before communing of the Body

+ St. Theophylact of Bulgaria

In agreement with the Patristic Patrum, St. Theophylact of Bulgaria offers us a brightly shinning spiritual gem in his sacred Commentary on the Gospel of St. John that easily refutes the modern-day innovative heresy that claims the Heterodox are members of the One Holy Catholic Apostolic Church and therefore can commune of the Divine and Life-giving Eucharist in the Orthodox Church.

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.

Science and the Holy Fathers

Notes from Fr. Seraphim Rose

The following are select separate notes found after Fr. Seraphim Rose's repose in 1982, published in Genesis, Creation, and Early Man:


4. Science as a Lower Form of Knowledge

The Spirit of Antichrist and the Forerunners of Antichrist

Archbishop Averky of Jordanville

From the second chapter of St. Paul's Second Epistle to the Thessalonians it is clear that the teaching about the Antichrist enters into the content of the earliest apostolic evangelization. After giving a description of the Antichrist in the third and fourth verses of that chapter, the holy Apostle writes further to the Thessalonians. "Do you not remember that when I was still with you, I told you...

Proper Orthodox Priestly Attire and Appearance According to the Saints

"Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain..." (Prov. 31:30). "Do not be conformed to this world..." (Rom.12:2).

(The following is a conversation between St. Iakavos of Evia and his spiritual child[ren]):

St. Iakavos: "“When we put on the cassock, we begin with the goal of sanctifying our soul. Care is necessary, however. For love of the world’s honor and glory, our egotism can make us lose our soul, rather than sanctify it... Priests shouldn’t cut their hair....

"The priest's cassock is the flag of the Church of our Christ: for this reason we must try hard to honor it, we who wear it, with a holy life, so that those who don't wear it will honor and respect it." - St. Amphilochios of Patmos
