Beware all those in so-called “Evangelical” sects… they are NOT Christians, only members of quasi-Christian sects that use Christian verbiage and bowdlerised versions of Holy Scripture. If you walk into their conventicles, the lack of holiness and sanctity overwhelms you. There are no holy things… no icons… no smell of incense… no altar… just seats and a podium. That isn’t a church, that’s a cinema. Trust me, there’s no way that one can worship truly in such a blasphemous setting. There are NO points of resemblance whatsoever between Christians (Orthodox, Catholics, Reformation Prods (both high and low)) and “Evangelicals” (including Pentecostalists, Mormons, and JWs). All those trying to bring in “Evangelical” practices and opinions into Orthodoxy (including tithing) are guilty of “returning to their vomit like dogs”, as Scripture tells us.
Do NOT hate. Simply keep your contacts with “Evangelicals” to a minimum and don’t argue with them. You can never win any argument with a fanatic. Only some 15 percent of Orthodox come from general Prod or “Evangelical” backgrounds according to Pew… albeit, their loud bleats on the internet inflate their seeming numbers and influence. Most Orthodox still come from “traditional” backgrounds and we shouldn’t allow this loud and narcissistic minority to distort and pervert our Faith in an “Evangelical” direction. You’ve read them… you’ve met them. Reflect on this… many of the former “Evangelicals” in our priesthood are “shake n’ bakes” without proper seminary formation. Yet, they prance all over the Net, pushing their fancies as Holy Writ.
DO NOT ARGUE WITH THEM OR LINK TO THEIR SITES. Let them be. Pray for them. If needs must, oppose them. However, NEVER argue with them. They’re pigheaded rightwing fanatics, which means that they enjoy disputation. Have a care, the times are evil; alien nastiness has crept into the Church. Many of the former “Evangelicals” have capitulated to the zeitgeist… they’ve never really abandoned their heretical notions. Treat them like the Born Agains that they are. If we pray for them, some of them may find their way to the Last Homely Home… if we argue with them, they’ll remain in the Outer Darkness…
