Jillions Took the Uniates’ Shilling… Is He Going to Repent of It Publicly, As He Ought?

The Kiss of Judas

Ilya Glazunov

1985

******

Jillions is a willing and deliberate collaborator of the Uniate deceivers… “Judas” isn’t strong enough an epithet, I think…

______________________________

John Jillions is a paid lackey of the Uniates; he works at the “Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies”, which is affiliated with, but NOT part of St Paul University. St Paul University is a “Pontifical University“, which means that it’s directly under B16‘s thumb. Jillions is NOT a grunt-level employee, such as a mechanic, driver, clerk, or cook. If he were such, I’d tell all critics to shut up and get a life… he wouldn’t be promoting the Unia… no way. If he were an upper-level admin employee, such as a manager, book-keeper, or facilities engineer, I’d still tell all critics to buzz off and get rooted. He’d not be promoting or approving the Unia… he’d just be doing a workaday job like most people. No… Jillions is a faculty member. That means that his ideology and mindset are agreeable to his Uniate employers. That means that Jillions implicitly approves of the Unia and all of its evil works by teaching in one of their institutions. That means that Jillions pisses on the contemporary confessors of the Ukraine and supports their Uniate tormentors.

DO YOU WANT SUCH A TRAITOROUS SCALAWAG AS A CHURCH OFFICIAL? In history, the Scalawags were Southerners who spat on their kith and kin by supporting the Reconstruction. Hmm… sounds much like an Orthodox Christian supporting the Uniate slimers in the Western Ukraine, doesn’t it? Here’s your real world choices:

  1. You can support John Jillions, and attack our co-religionists in the Western Ukraine by supporting the Uniates, as he does
  2. You can support Metropolitan Vladimir Sabodan, and hold up our co-religionists, by fighting the Unia, as he does

There are NO other choices.

You can honour John Jillions or you can honour Fr Mikahil Shuvar.

Choose well.

9 October 2011. Ultimate Things… Whom Do YOU Believe: The Blunder or Fr Michael Pomazansky? There’s NO Contest…

Hell

Herrade von Landsberg

circa 1185

Hortus Deliciarum (Garden of Delights)

Abbaye Mont Sainte-Odile (Abtei Hohenburg)

Mont Sainte-Odile (Odilienberg) (Département Bas-RhinRégion Alsace) FRANCE

******

Do note the abbot being led to Satan in the lower left… I could think of some contemporary churchmen who could fit that bill… can’t you?

Editor’s Foreword:

A friend sent me the following… it’s GOOD STUFF… I’d classify it as “read n’ heed”… ‘nuff said! This is important for us as Jillions shares ALL of the Blunder’s theological errors with the added baggage of having a nastier personality and having a harpy harridan as a wife.

NB:

All of the below is from my friend up until the Afterword.

Divine Mercy Congress Ends… Spiced By Theological Disagreement 

7 April 2008

Cardinal Christoph Schönborn of Vienna celebrated Mass in St Peter’s Basilica on Sunday, 6 April, to close the First World Apostolic Congress of Divine Mercy. The conference was marked by a respectful theological disagreement between the Russian Orthodox Bishop Hilarion of Vienna and Cardinal Schönborn. The Orthodox prelate, in his presentation, argued that God’s mercy is so great that He doesn’t condemn sinners to everlasting punishment. The Orthodox understanding of hell, Bishop Hilarion said, corresponds roughly to the Catholic notion of purgatory. Cardinal Schönborn politely disagreed, noting that the idea expressed by Bishop Hilarion “isn’t a doctrine of the Church. While hell is a reality, it’s God’s Will for all men to be saved, and all Christians should pray that no one will be lost”.

****** 

I understand that the Roman Catholic (and, therefore, Uniate) dogma concerning the Reality of Purgatory is as follows:

  • The souls of the just which, in the moment of death, are burdened with venial sins or temporal punishment due to sins, enter Purgatory
  • Purgatory is a place and state of temporal penal purification
  • Purgatory will not continue after the General (Last) Judgement

Inveighing against their Orthodox interlocutors at the so-called “Union” Councils of Lyons (1274) and of Florence (1439), the Roman Catholics upheld and affirmed the teaching of the purifying fire (i.e., Purgatory) and the expiatory character of the penal sufferings:

The souls of those who depart this life with true repentance and in the love of God, before they have rendered satisfaction for their trespasses and negligence’s by the worthy fruits of penance, are purified after death with the punishment of purification.

Protopresbyter Michael Pomazansky on the Ultimate Things 

Concerning the state of the soul after the Particular Judgement (the Judgment of an individual after his/her soul departs the body), the Orthodox Church teaches thus: “We believe that the souls of the dead are in a state of blessedness or torment according to their deeds. After separation from the body, either they immediately pass over to joy or into sorrow and grief; however, they don’t feel either complete blessedness or complete torment. For complete blessedness or complete torment, one receives that after the General Resurrection, when the soul is reunited with the body in which it lived in virtue or in vice” (The Epistle of the Eastern Patriarchs on the Orthodox Faith, paragraph 18). Thus, the Orthodox Church distinguishes two different conditions after the Particular Judgement… one for the righteous, another for sinners; in other words, paradise and hell. The Church does not recognise the Roman Catholic (and Uniate) teaching of three conditions:

  1. Blessedness
  2. Purgatory
  3. Gehenna (hell)

The Fathers of the Church usually use the name “Gehenna” to refer to the condition after the Last Judgement, when both death and hell will be cast into the “lake of fire” (Apocalypse of St John 20.15). The Church, basing itself on the word of God, acknowledges the torments of Gehenna to be eternal and unending, so, therefore, it condemned at the Fifth Ecumenical Council the false teaching of the Origenists that demons and impious people would suffer hell only for a certain definite time, and, then, would be restored to their original condition of innocence (apokatastasis in Greek). The Apocalypse of St John the Theologian calls the condemnation at the Universal Judgement the “second death” (Apocalypse of St John 20.14). However, it’s not for us to define the boundaries between the unutterable mercy of God and His justice or righteousness. We know that the Lord will have all men to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the truth (I Timothy 2.4); but man is capable, through his own evil will, of rejecting the mercy of God and the means of salvation. Worthy of attention likewise is the simple comment in this regard of Bishop Theophan the Recluse:

The righteous will go into eternal life, but the satanised sinners will go into eternal torments, in communion with the demons.

My Own Thoughts 

Alfeyev, in his presentation, argued that God’s mercy is so great that He doesn’t condemn sinners to everlasting punishment. He said, “The Orthodox understanding of hell corresponds roughly to the Catholic notion of purgatory”.

  1. The absence of the possibility of everlasting punishment in Gehenna after the Last Judgement for incorrigible sinners who relentlessly reject God’s love and mercy contravenes Church teaching because it denies man’s Free Will. Men must come to God and Faith freely.
  2. As attested to by The Letter of the Eastern Patriarchs (1848)… itself a compendium and exposition of the teachings of the Holy Fathers throughout the ages… the Church knows of no state or place corresponding to the Roman Catholic (and Uniate) notion of purgatory, roughly, or in any other way.

Fr Michael was fond of saying that, strictly speaking, there are only three Theologians in the Church (St John the Apostle, Evangelist and Theologian, St Gregory Nazianzen the Theologian, St Symeon the New Theologian). Metropolitan Hilarion is certainly not cut from the same bolt of cloth. Speaking for myself, I’m going follow the Eastern Patriarchs, St Theophan, Fr Michael, and others such as the ever-memorable Fr Daniil Sysoev and Deacon Yuri Maksimov. I’d suggest your dear readers follow suit. After all, their ETERNAL lives depend on it. Frankly, we can do without Western-educated “wise men” trying to “teach” us.

Editor’s Afterword:

I can think of no one more thoroughly Orthodox than Fr Michael Pomozansky (I had the privilege of meeting him once, fleetingly, at Jordanville). Reflect on this… John Jillions is antipodes removed from Fr Michael… and is totally in agreement with the Blunder. In short, John Jillions isn’t Orthodox at all in his soul… like the Blunder, he’s a Uniate at heart and the sooner that’s exposed, the better off we’ll all be. After all, Jillions takes his salary from the Uniates… he’s their faithful servant and lickspittle supporter. Why would grounded Orthodox wish to give any responsible office to such a rebellious apostate? Reflect well on that…
