...it's like flying a Boeing 747 with maps dated back to ancient Rome!!!!
Times have changed, Russia is in a very difficult process of reforms. So is
Yes, the most important thing is to be on the same ship in order to help the
captains to find back the right track...
Just pointing that the map is wrong is not enough....
We should change the Church to the times?
The French did want to stay on course , but the Captains took the new
course . They are flying the ship and didn't want anyone interfering. I find
it is hard to help the Captains find back the right track. They won't
listen. That's why so many left and are leaving.
Why crash with them when one can take another ship and fly the same safe
route as our Holy Fathers? Knowing at least that we are following
the course the Captains took that never crashed.
6. The question is not "to unite or not to unite with the MP". The
question is "To unite after the MP has renounced sergianism and
ecumenism or before it has renounced sergianism and ecumenism". I am
concerned, and this concern is not only mine. It is the concern of a
sizeable part of the Church and of bishops.
Should this question not be part of our discussions? ...and not a statement?
ROCOR in it's letter to Patriarch Pavel begged him to pave the way for
dialogue and eventual union with MP. The MP wrote that ROCOR was in schism
from the Russian Church. Who's uniting to whom? How will ROCOR be united
with MP since they are in schism?
If we are not to waite for MP to show their good will to the faith and
renounce ecumenism that we Anathemetized, what should we expect from her?
Some concessions here and there and say they repented?
The MP have to show a desire to renounce these heresies, otherwise what's
stopping us from having dialogue with the Muslims, Jews, Latins,
Protestants, etc....Not a good idea.
