    Thank you for your post. I don't know, but I think it is immoral to attempt to scare people with hell to get them to not get vaccinated, and that is happening right on this forum by someone claiming to be "Orthodox." I cannot speak to that, since I do not belong to the EO Church, as to whether...

    Again, you can take what I say with a grain of salt. I am Catholic not EO, but I still like to know how you would say the Orthodox approach to the question of how revelation works, and if it is different than what I have described above.

    Private revelations are another thing, but no one Saint or Father should be looked at as the sole source of the Deposit of Faith. If Christ knew that getting the covid vaccine could jeopardize or even kill Grace within us and exclude us from Salvation, don't you think He would have told us...

    You're speaking as if this Saint speaks for Christ and the Orthodox Church. Is it not the census of the Fathers and teaching of the Church that should be followed rather than a prophesy by one Saint? There is no new public revelations binding on all Christians. That ended with the death of the...

    I guess perhaps things have changed. It used to be different on this forum. Liza, I appreciate the prayers, but surely you know what I am talking about, right? You were around during the time of ialmisry and there were others. I'm willing to forgive and forget as long as I or anyone else from my...

    Okay, so the Sacrament of Confession then would be the remedy for this? It doesn't permanently exclude one from salvation or isn't unforgiveable?

    Is it possible for someone who is vaccinated to have salvation, or since it is the mark of the beast, does that make me exempt from salvation and doomed to be separated from Christ now?

    I cannot get over this initial posting of yours on my profile page. You seem to be gleeful at the prospect that I may go to hell for taking the vaccine. How Christlike of you! You make a horrible witness to "Orthodoxy."

    Are the Vaccines affecting our spirituality? Orthodox Church Father Savvas.

    No one had the modern-day understanding of a pandemic or viruses then. Why don't we just stop vaccines for everything. That's what some seem to be advocating. :rolleyes:

    So you have never been vaccinated for anything in your life? What if you are already vaccinated? Just doomed to hell then?

    No, I'm laughing at your erroneous interpretation of said things, and do not for one second act like you can break the Second Commandment and hide behind this like anti-vax position is the Will of God...STOP misusing His Name. Who are you to presume the Will of God? No Saint or Council in...

    You're right. Maybe I am struggling. These are rough times in general IRL outside this forum. I'm feeling hopeless and looking for answers. So yes, I guess this is just a self-indulgent thread that could be closed. Fair enough.

    German RC academia and Orthodoxy

    I almost wish I never would have known of the Catholic or Orthodox Church or ever became Catholic, but just remained a United Methodist as I was raised. I think I'd be more content and then I wouldn't be burdened with all the spiritual discomfort. Honestly I don't feel totally comfortable with...

    German RC academia and Orthodoxy

    Really? Because in 2010s most everyone, at least in this section of the forum, said Catholics don't have Apostolic Succession and the Pope is a layperson. I don't know if that was them providing spiritual truth or just trying to stir up Catholics and be polemical. I have an Orthodox friend who...

    German RC academia and Orthodoxy

    So all the jurisdictions do it the same now? It used to be some received by a profession of faith, others Ordained, and still others required Baptism and the whole nine yards. This is semantic acrobatics for: "You do not have Grace or Apostolic Succession."
