Re: Orthodox Imposter
- Dear List,
This discussion about the imposture has been rather interesting.
Do not laugh. Ecumenism is not far from us.
It was said that Prince Charles had many orthodox people in his
family. An example given was that of Prince Philip who "had been"
orthodox before his wedding with HM Elizabeth II. In orthodox terms,
a person who "was" an orthodox before is an apostate. But this was
given as an example of orthodoxy.
In fact, ecumenism is what invades us. This is visible with the
projected union with the MP. This union is without any spiritual
content, since it is being announcedd that all declarations which
hinder the union will be declared "invalid".
A friend of mine just told me that what we really see here in this
kind of thinking (by the "ROCOR" neo-pologists for the MP) is exactly
the sort of thinking that underlies ecumenism: if just we sit down
together as friends, why then any and all previous doctrinal and
historical differences? They become irrelevant, they suddenly fade
Why? Because they were merely subjective, private opinions... That
they are eternal spiritual, metaphysical facts becomes a convenient
matter of obsolescence.
All this for political/social ends (buildings, public visibility,
ethnic harmony, social progress), in other words, Sergianist ones.
This is ends justifying the means: the "ethics" of Marxism-Leninism.
No wonder those who now think like this have no longer any problem
with the post-Sovet, pro-Ecumenist MP.
What we are seeing is the modernisation, americanisation of ROCOR...
Its acceptance of pluralism, relativism, and syncretism for the sake
of social peace. This is, afterall, the next stage of "progress"
after the stalemated conflicts of the industrial/enlightenment
Nothing else matters, only technology and trade. All else was really
just materialist, egoist partisanship, now wasn't it?...
After all, "what is truth"? Don't we each have our own? As long
as we get rich together, and live comfortably, what does all that old
fashioned spiritual, ascetic struggle matter? It was just
fanaticism, wasn't it?
Smile everybody, the camera is over there...
