10 October 2016. Have a Care With Seemingly “Official” Orthodox Sources

00 trickle down economics at work new

THIS is what our Holy Patriarch teaches about the so-called “Free Market”… it sure isn’t what the rightwing konvertsy spout, is it?


Live every day as if it could be your last, and when you go to bed, don’t forget to say your prayers. I do, because I know we’re living in the proverbial “interesting times”…

People should have a care with pravoslavie.ru… this website is NOT official; it has no ties to any patriarchal publishing or news organisation. It isn’t an official production of OVTsOS. It purveys the personal opinions of Tikhon Shevkunov (don’t forget… his degree is in film production, NOT theology), not the official stance of the Church. The site employs questionable people such as Jesse Dominick and Elijah Borek… it posts material from CBN (!) and produces posts praising the pro-American “Ukrainian Orthodox” and ignores the Orthodox socialism of the Peoples Republics in the Donbass. Indeed, the site praises Free Market Crapitalism, in direct contrast to the teaching of HH… who teaches that the Free Market is a fraud and buries ordinary working people. A priest in good standing and of some seniority told me about Borek:

I blocked Elijah Borek months ago. He’s an ass who thinks he knows more than anyone about Holy Orthodoxy. He continually argued with me that the Most Holy Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary was NOT sinless. I finally had enough of his arrogance and blocked him.

This is the sort of questionable person that Shevkunov is gathering about him. You should take great care in using ANY material from pravoslavie.ru or pravmir.ru. I repeat… neither one is an official website. There’s much in them that isn’t in step with the Mind of the Church; it’s just rightwing blather. As “Texas” said, “We’re living in the proverbial ‘interesting times’”… have a care, for many deceivers come in “Christian” vesture (yes, even seemingly “Orthodox” vesture at that)…

One last thing… pravoslavie.ru doesn’t tell about the foreign leftist volunteers who’ve come to fight in the Donbass with the patriot forces who embrace Holy Orthodoxy because the Orthodox Socialism of the Peoples Republics is so attractive and genuine. “Texas” is one… Alfonso from Colombia is another… there are more… you can embrace Real Orthodoxy and godly communalism and coöperation or you can embrace rightwing Pseudo-Orthodoxy and godless individualism and greed. You may have Christ or “Conservatism”…

The Choice IS yours…
