OCA Tries to Ignore EP Apostasy… Nothing About EP Actions or Moscow’s Counteractions on OCA Official Website

Is Mallard a Mazeppa or simply the Court Fool? Time alone will tell us…

__________________

There’s still nothing up on the OCA official website about the EP apostasy in re the Ukraine. Nothing. Nada. Nichevo. It’s as though nothing is happening and it’s business as usual. This is treachery of the highest order. Moscow gave the OCA its autocephaly and defended it against EP aggrandisement. The OCA has repaid it by refusing to stand by its Mother Church in its hour of need. I’ve noticed that too many converts are either wishy-washy or support the apostasy of the EP. Shall they stay loyal to the Mother Church and Truth, or shall they sell out to the EP and Expediency? Only time will tell us, and I fear that the outcome would be that the OCA will either fly apart or go into schism with the EP. In the end, the main victim of this affair won’t be the UPTs/MP… I fear that this may mark the end of the OCA in its present form. God do help us… the schism is only in its initial stage, but what I see gives me no confidence.

OCA Buzz… Jillions Out… Brum In… The Golden 400 Still Rule the Roost

It came from Syosset…

________________________

Jillions is out as OCA Chancellor. David Brum AKA “Bishop Daniel” replaces him… a Uniate employee replaced by a former Papist. In short, nothing changed essentially. The Golden 400 still rule, SVS runs amuck, and the parishes will live on in splendid ignorance of what goes on at the OCA centre… Brum is one of the Syosset gang, nothing’s going to change overly much.

Oh, I forgot to mention… I got this from four reliable sources… oca.org hasn’t deigned to post on this yet. That hasn’t changed either.

Bishop Lazar: What IS Romans 13?

THIS is what the Evangelicals have become… have a care that we don’t follow them into the abyss

________________________

This is another example of the crookedness of Evangelicalism. If one must be subject to the authority without question, then, when the authority permits abortion and the rights of groups you don’t agree with, you must passively accept it. Where were the Romans 13ers during Mr Obama’s government? It’s of no avail to claim that you shouldn’t be subject to corrupt governments (or even perverse governments) since Apostle St Paul spoke these words when Nero was the authority, and one also had Caligula, Heliogabalus, Tiberius and the like in absolute authority. Therefore, one had to be completely subject and obedient to these authorities. However, you see now the American Christian is supposed to be subject and obedient to Mr Trump, perhaps in the same way that the Roman Catholic Church supported Mr Mussolini, and in return, the Vatican received the status of an independent nation. Romans 13 appears to be all or none if one takes it in any way as a literal command, rather than an effort to stave off government persecution of Christians. After all, St Paul had to demonstrate that Christianity wasn’t some subversive organisation. That’s the real meaning of Romans 13… at least, the first half of it.

Bishop Lazar: “One Can Make a Lot of Money Peddling Fear”

________________________

One can make a lot of money peddling fear. Perhaps, love isn’t remunerative enough for them. The “love” that they mention is so bound to fear and “only if” that it’s more “control” than love. We find such not only as a hallmark of Evangelicalism but also as a hallmark of parish cultism in our own Orthodox Church.
