Christos Anesti! Christ is Risen!
Hello. . . someone posted a link to this site so I thought I'd come say hello to those of you I used to talk to . . . .
Hi Jessica, welcome and thanks for clicking on the link
I think I may have brought about the premature locking of that thread with my response to gracerest9, as my post was not too gracious towards the moderators (it was mostly Winter Crow doing the locking and deleting). I had actually sent a private apology to Fritz some time ago regarding another similiar post of mine. Basically, in my apology I stated that he was well within his rights to choose his friends and act in what he thought were their best interests. I had also promised that if I had any other grievances that I would contact him privately and not post them publically. I think I may have broken that promise with my above mentioned post.
We are a bit of a problem for most Evangelicals because they really have no clue about Orthodoxy. They have been raised on a diet of anti Catholicism and are at a loss when confronted with Orthodoxy. I think we were mostly tolerated when we were on the defensive, merely posting to correct incorrect knowledge and understanding, but it became too much for them when Monkey took it on the offensive with his "Where were the Evangelicals?" thread.
Personally, I find michael777's posts on the trinity potentially far more damaging to fledgling evangelicals because he claims to be somewhat of an authority on the topic, having supposedly studied the issue for 17 years. I find him a bit of an enigma because at times he appears very well read
, yet at other times he demonstrates extremely shoddy scholarship
. I am also annoyed at his persistance at posting stuff as fact that he has been shown to be clearly incorrect (not necessarily by me. e.g. ELOHIM in Psalm 8:5).
I'm fine with your posts because you don't claim to be an authority even though you believe much the same as michael777 regarding the trinity
