And what do you think the particular ethical system is that he is referring to that he thinks is weakening Christ's voice?Mor Ephrem said:Where?rakovsky said:I want to clarify that for me this is becoming for the sake of argument.
Fr. Arida writes on p. 1:
Here Fr. Arida claims that the Gospel is being distorted in the Orthodox church and a new and alien spirit is replacing the gospel's voice. An ethical system, which he later relates to the rejection of a certain sex orientation is, he claims, weakening Christ's voice. Such a passage by Arida is going against the Church and against its ethical system that opposes homosexuality.To diminish this most fundamental aspect of Orthodox thought and life is nothing less than a distortion of the Gospel. Yet, as will be pointed out, this is precisely what is occurring in the Orthodox Church here and abroad. A “new and alien spirit” is displacing the authentic voice of the Gospel.The voice of Christ is being weakened by the voice of philosophical and ethical systems.
Later, on p. 4, He lists a set of particular issues: "the Church can no longer ignore or condemn questions and issues that are presumed to contradict or challenge its living Tradition. Among the most controversial of these issues are those related to human sexuality"
The only ethical issues that he lists are those on page 4, so presumptively that is what he is talking about.
