Dear Forum Participants,
On Nik's forum (Euphrosynoscafe.com) Joe Zollars has revealed that he has returned to Tridentine Catholicism and that he now "knows" that the Tridentine Mass "more closely reflects the theology of the Gospels" than the Orthodox Divine Liturgy!
I do not post this in any way to disparage Mr. Zollars, and will not allow anyone to post anything negative about him since he no longer posts here. However, that being said, the reason I post this is to let everyone know that this is what Serge, I, and others were trying to tell Mr. Zollars--namely that he was into Orthodoxy for the wrong reasons, and that Serge's prediction that Zollars would end up RC again ultimately came true.
Now I also am not posting this to say "I told you so" but rather because I want to encourage our forum participants--especially those with a "let's convert them at any cost" attitude to reflect on the affair of Mr. Zollars and realize that we need to be very sensitive when someone approaches Orthodoxy **solely** because he is mad at something in his former religion (Mr. Zollars had only attended one weekend of Orthodox services ever, and that was AFTER he announced his conversion).
Let us all pray for Mr. Zollars as well--that he will indeed one day accept the Orthodox faith, and that he will be able to leave the situation that has him very depressed at the current time.
If I have misrepresented anything about Mr. Zollars, I assure you it is an accident, and I would appreciate it if he would chime in if he still lurks here, or if anyone else would convey such corrections.
