    Outta Here

    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...

    Nestorian Christology

    Nestorius and his followers certainly did confess "the double consubstantiality of Christ, and the perfect humanity and divinity, united without confusion or division." Nothing was said in the original quote about the mechanics of the union of Christ's humanity and divinity, whether it was...

    Phyletism is the heresy of church organization based on ethnicity, a practice that can result in competing autocephalous churches occupying the same geographic region. It was condemned at the Synod of Constantinople in 1872. There is a neat little article at http://www.ocl.org/synodof.htm...

    Here's a Question

    Here's something that has been at the back of my mind for awhile. Why do some Orthodox hierarchs allow themselves to be addressed as "His All Holiness" and "His Eminence" and with similar titles? Pardon me, but such things seem to be the very antithesis of humility. Just wondering. Please...

    Please Pray for Sinjinsmythe

    Please pray for him, folks. His new signature says, "I wish I was dead." I am not trying to embarrass him, but I think we should all pray.

    Can Someone Explain This?

    I am not trying to be divisive, but I would like someone to explain the photo below to me and the circumstances surrounding it. Perhaps this has been discussed here before. If so, perhaps someone could refer me to that thread. I think it is well known here that I am generally pretty favorably...

    My New Neighbors

    A Serbian family just moved in next door to me. Well, they are Americans now; their two boys don't even speak much Serbian, but the parents are native Serbs. They are Orthodox but don't seem especially religious. In fact, since there is no Orthodox church within what they consider reasonable...

    Tomorrow is the Feast Day of St. Leo the Great

    St. Leo the Great, pray for us sinners!

    This seems to me to be an extremely important topic. I doubt that I can do it justice, but I want to try anyway. First off, let’s begin by agreeing that we all regard our Lord Jesus Christ as the Head of the Church. That is a given. But it seems to me that it does no practical good to say that...

    The Writings of St. Maximus the Confessor

    Can anyone here direct me to a source for an English translation of the writings of St. Maximus the Confessor? I would settle for them in German if English is not available. I have Hans Urs von Balthasar's book, Cosmic Liturgy: The Universe According to Maximus the Confessor. Now I would like...

    This One's for You, Sergio!

    Since this my 1,966th post, I figured I would post it in honor of Sergio Mendes. Remember him? Those who do will not have to ask what 1966 has to do with good ol' Sergio. 8)

    Did anyone notice that Br. Max has already passed the 1000-post mark? I really don't think I'll be "Top Poster" for long at this rate. Anyway, congratulations, Br. Max. I enjoy your posts and am glad you are here. ;D
