    A Form of Gnosticism exists in Orthodoxy, but if you read the fathers carefully, you see a much different approach. Heretics, are often those who take a one sided stance on issues. for example: The Gnostic's totally neglect human natures involvement in salvation, in favor of a spiritual...

    What Is Human?

    Interesting topic. Technically, human nature is one. Meaning, every human person has physical qualities that are related too everyone else. Those qualities are generally not identified as individual because everyone has them. Then you have a subset of qualities that make you identifiable...

    "Americans continue leaving church - most aren't coming back."

    I don't agree. No need to alter our outward appearance. Orthodoxy is a spiritual practice. Being OK with God has nothing to do with the human weakness and need to belong to an organized group. We are followers of god and not man.

    "The River of Fire" by A. Kalomiros

    I get what you are saying, but you are missing the greater picture. Illness is accounted for in the theology of the fall. While innocents is still preserved. Penal punishment is a distorted view of justice. How can one punish and love at the same time? Truthfully, Kalimoros does a very...

    "The River of Fire" by A. Kalomiros

    You are looking in the wrong place. God isn't the one who creates the suffering. The suffering is self inflicted. Its a spiritual hell of one's own making.

    Where was the outpouring of empathy when my country was at war?

    Regardless for religious affiliation. Most people have a yearning for freedom in their nature. What is orthodoxy, if it isn't the most complete form of freedom?

    Bishops stop commemorating Moscow Patriarch

    MP is going to be branded a topical enabler, even a nationalist. It's not a good day for Orthodoxy when core values of the faith are replaced with ideologies of granger. Waiting to see what canon laws are going to be thrown at him for his dismissal.
