    I cannot in good conscience remain on and participate in a web site whose official policy is that Non-Chalcedonians - known until quite recently as Monophysites - are "Orthodox." To do so would be to tacitly endorse this grievous error and to court the wrath of God. I am not really concerned...

    A question about the new forum policy

    What's next? Apparently the word "Orthodox" doesn't mean much.

    Because "one nature" is incorrect. Our Lord is one Divine Person and Hypostasis with two natures, human and divine. To speak of one nature from two implies mixture or confusion, despite protests to the contrary. To say "it is impossible to speak of two natures after the union" implies a...

    Raouf - Does any human being possess a human nature that is "the nature of all humanity" (in the sense of "every last individual, concrete human nature")? He possesses a human nature, which is a set of qualities common to all human beings, but he possesses it in concrete reality: in other...

    harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    Funny, I found the gray, dismal appearance of this new film less realistic than the appearance of the first two films. The colors I see every day aren't so washed out. Even when I lived in the rainy, very England-like Pacific Northwest, I didn't find things so drab. I got the feeling this...

    Apology to Aristokles/Demetrios

    Oh, heck! He's used to being criticized without cause. He's married! ;D

    Huh? If I understood Aristokles correctly, he just said that word means "will." Those verses, Matthew 26:39 and John 5:30, definitely show our Lord Jesus deferring to the Father's will over His own. Since in His divinity He shares the divine will with the Father, Jesus must have been speaking...

    Here's another bit of Scripture to ponder: "I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge, and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me" (John 5:30). Once again, that doesn't make much sense if our Lord Jesus has but a single, divine will.

    Rustaveli - I made that statement because I was hoping we could limit the EO-NC conflict to one forum and not let it expand into several others, that's all. Regarding the two wills of our Lord, how do you interpret Christ's words in Matthew 26:39: ". . . not as I will, but as You will" ? He...

    Nestorius ended up alone, but he had the support of Theodosius II at first. And Nestorius was also Patriarch of Constantinople, was he not? "Bishops are usually right" only when they are actually right, not merely by virtue of their positions as bishops.

    It is interesting that those who are most vocal in condemning my "tone" and accusing me of impoliteness are those who disagree with me to one degree or another. I do not see anything wrong with talking to other Christians, although I do not believe any group condemned and anathematized by the...

    "Rude" is in the eye of the beholder. Frankly, I have found many of your posts rude. For example, there is the following unjustified and unsupported remark you made about me: And then there is this response to one of my posts: You have posted in a similar style - with intro statements very...

    Frankly, Pedro, I don't see anything wrong with my tone. It is direct, blunt, and to the point. I never engage in the sorts of personal attacks that have been used against me. The real problem is that I will not say the sorts of things so many seem to want me to say out of the sort of...

    Oh, I'm with Keble on this one. Richard Harris was one of my long-time favorite actors. He was great as Dumbledore. The new guy just doesn't cut it. I agree with Keble about the woodeness of some of the child actors, as well. And I thought the film a bit too gray and dismal, the colors less...

    Nestorian Christology

    The point was whether or not Nestorians (which is what I wrote) or even Nestorius himself, if you insist, could subscribe to a belief in "the double consubstantiality of Christ, and the perfect humanity and divinity, united without confusion or division." Nestorius' writings, when examined...

    I do not know that he did not write about them. I have not read everything written by Fr. Seraphim. Arguments from silence are a bit weak, though, mourad. One could ask why Fr. Seraphim never wrote about the problem of auto theft in Miami. Perhaps he thought it was okay then? I don't want...

    Make up your mind, please! Am I a Sola Scriptura Protestant or a ROAC fanatic? ;D Who said "all the Orthodox leaders (at least in the US) have succumbed to Ecumenism?" Some of them may have. Others have not. But even if a majority of them do succumb to ecumenism, that will not alter the...
