Certain people, such as Bp. Kallistos, say that we should talk about it rather than running away from the issue. There isn't really a large movement for the ordination of women in the Orthodox Church.
What is there to talk about? The people that say "we should talk about it"
, just want to pull a liberal Protestant move. They want to be modern. They want to have Women priests(and one day Bishops too...just like the gnostic loving Episcopals they look up too and soo want to be like)
. That is what the talks are going to come to. This already happened in Protestant land. The former Protestants that became Orthodox.....like myself, know what's going on. We know what they are trying to do. It already happened in Protestant World. What is there to talk about? IF the answer is not no, then what is there to talk about? They can't fool anyone. Converts know what's going on........they can't dupe anyone with the "talk lingo".
I love BP. Kallistos, but I've noticed that he's been changing over the years towards the left. I no longer want to buy his new edition of the "Orthodox Church". I can't give that book to conservative and moderate Protestants. Only Liberal gnostic loving and bodily resurrection denying Protestants would want to read that book.
And you know what they say? Oh, Let's talk about it! Let's talk about the possibility of his body not rising from the dead, lets talk about the possibility of him not performing miracles.....let's talk about it......we shouldn't run away from it.
If the answer is not no, then what is there to talk about?
He lives in England, so he is surrounded by Liberal Protestantism, so maybe he is trying to please them. Or maybe they are constantly speaking in his ear. They listen to him speak, and once he says something they don't like.....they put pressure on him to change his mind.
Or maybe the World Council of Churches or the National Council of Churches are putting pressure on him to "SLOWLY" embrace women priests.
I once heard a Roman Catholic on EWTN say that in an old edition of "The Orthodox Church" he said that the ORthodox are against contraception. Then in a later edition, he said that it's up to the individual family.
If this is true, then he is slowly trying to push for the ordaination of women priests.
We need to leave the World Council of Churches, and National Council of Churches, before they turn us into just another Liberal Protestant church.
I pray that the economy of the Western World collapse. OR that Russia pressures the Western World through Oil to embrace more conservative views.
Something needs to happen for the Western World is Hell bound.
