30 March 2016. The Revival Will NOT be Televised… The Revival Will be Live… Kid’s Choir at the Khram Spasitelya

Many people think of “revival” in Born-Again Proddie terms. Sober observation soon convinces all grounded people that such emotionalism rarely lasts, and hardly ever leads to real reformation and conversion. Real revival is the work of years… even generations. If one looks at Russia today, a solid foundation is there. More people go to church on a given Sunday than they do in the contemporary West. Let’s keep it simple… in the West (including the USA!) church buildings are falling vacant and finding new use as clubs, restaurants, or even private homes. In Russia, new churches pop up… most are rarely empty and operate seven days a week (if you want a pannikhida any day of the week, the priest and dirigent are normally there). People go in and light candles… they confess… they pray… it’s not like American parishes, where the church building stands locked most of the time.

The konvertsy want us to follow “Evangelical” models. I say that’s evil. If we want revival… let’s follow the Mother Church. It may take years… I certainly wouldn’t see the full fruit of it… but it’d be real, unlike Born-Again ersatz spiritualism. It’s time to take the first step… by denouncing ALL forms of “Evangelical” sectarianism (it isn’t Christian in the least) and all those who want to bring such rubbish into Christ’s Church. Let’s be REAL Christians, following the traditions given us by the Saints and our forefathers (not Antichristian “Evangelical” notions)… after all, the Church DID exist before the Born-Agains popped up, didn’t it?

10 March 2016. OCA Synod: Slap Down These Disobedient Bastards

00 Ka-Pow! 14.09.13

______________________________

OCA Synod… here’s another example of the Convertadox Conventicle spitting on your order. I think that you should find out who posted this… then, warn all concerned (all posters, Grigorenko, Dominick, and Ryan Hunter, amongst others) that you’d ban them from the Chalice if they continued to defy you. These disobedient little pricks are beyond words… yet, as I stated before, they have the consummate gall to lecture all of us on OBEDIENCE! Here is what one of the Cabinet wrote me:

Not sure who runs this site, but the OCA SOBs needs to contact them and tell them to pull it down. There’s more to sainthood than incorruption of body, and as yet there aren’t too many, if any at all, reports of miracles attributed to his prayers. If Archbishop Dimitri is a saint, the Church will recognise that in due time, but at the moment, too many people are jumping the gun, either out of personal love for him or out of the desire to have another American saint (as if that proves something or another about the state of Orthodoxy in America).

I need add nothing… well said!

9 March 2016. It’s Time for the OCA to Formally Petition the MP to Remove the Offensive “Incorruptibility” Post on Pravoslavie… Shevkunov Be Damned!

00 this is wrong. 050715

_______________________________

Tikhon Shevkunov is a loose cannon. His website Pravoslavie is NOT official… much on it (especially, in English) is Convertadox rubbish (one Jesse Dominick, a well-known konvertsy loudmouth, works on that side of the operation). The OCA Holy Synod of Bishops should formally petition HH to have the offensive post about the “incorruptibility” of Dmitri Royster on Pravoslavie taken down permanently. Jesse Dominick knew what the OCA Synod wanted in the case of this affair… he’s a disobedient little twit like Grigorenko (besides being a supporter of the American rightwing enemies of the Church)… he refused to follow the spirit of the OCA SOBs order. Ergo, the OCA SOBs should approach HH with the formal request that HH force Pravoslavie to take the offensive post down and destroy all images. It tells us much about Tikhon Shevkunov, Jesse Dominick, and the whole Pravoslavie operation. Shevkunov isn’t as important as the konvertsy imagine. He’s a powerless vicar bishop who has tread only because he’s the confessor to the Putin family and because of his ties to pro-Western oligarchs. Never forget that Shevkunov doesn’t have a kandidatura in theology… his higher education was at a film institute (thus, his slick public persona, which fools all the superficial and shallow konvertsy). Shevkunov’s main claim to fame is his website… which isn’t official, not in the least!

Have a care… much that glitters isn’t real… much that’s real, doesn’t glitter. Keep it focused…

8 March 2016. Cabinet Input on l’Affaire Royster

01-woman-writing

_______________________________

One of the Cabinet wrote me this:

I don’t get this rush by some to canonise Royster. If a thing has truth, that’ll bear itself out and the Church will recognise that. I guess the whole “blessed are they that haven’t seen, but yet believe” thing is lost on some. They’ve lost it to the point where it leads to disobedience.

I quite agree. These toddlers deserve a paddling and public humiliation for dissing the Church so. That’s all…
