    Ecclessiological Ramblings

    I've given the matter some thought, and feel that the subject of ecclessiology should be returned to on this forum, but perhaps with a different perspective. Rather than indulging disputes about "who is" and "who is not" Orthodox (I mean this amongst those who claim to be Orthodox - not against...

    This war

    I know along with Serge (believe it or not, this is a subject we seem to agree upon, at least in a few basic respects), I was never a big fan of this war, or the "war on terror" in general. Frankly, I think the tragedy of 9-11 was abused (in terms of the logical connections that were made), to...

    "Graceless heretics" a purely EO "extremist" position?

    Very often the Orthodox position that the communication of the Holy Spirit only exists within the Church of Christ (understood to be the Orthodox Church) is not simply regarded with contempt, but dismissed as being inauthentic and not a part of the genuine Patristic consensus. Given this...

    Say what?

    Keble, (in reply to this post) You excommunicated him? Odd, your church didn't. I didn't know you were an episcopalian bishop... Well, I bring up your "church's" heterodoxy, because I find virtually everything you write to be nauseatingly hypocritical. For you to refer to anything as a...

    Communion with Heresy

    Is it possible for an Orthodox Church to have communion with heretics, without itself falling under their condemnation? I ask this, because of the essential union which has existed for some time between the Antiochian Orthodox and the Non-Chalcedonian Syrians. While there are arguments over...

    Just a matter of 13 days?

    In another thread, a poster said the following regarding the havoc caused by ecumenism and the heresies it entails... It is particularly the second comment which deserves a response. Rather than repeat the work of others, I'll supply the following link. I'd be interested in comments on the...

    Speaking of Hal Lindsey

    Speaking of Hal Lindsey, I just saw this add for a book he's put out on the subject of "Jihad", and Islam in general. Reading the pitch for the book, I had some thoughts. https://web7.webrelation.com/ssl/oracle/index.asp?Product=Book&Item=452#452 I can only assume he's talking about Arabs as...

    Please pray for me and those dear to me

    My grandmother is quite ill and has been hospitalized. I ask your prayers on her behalf (her name is Conception' - a Spanish name), for her health...and if not her healing, perhaps above all else, that she leave this world as a friend of God. I also ask your prayers for me, my fiance, and my...
