Mark my words. One day soon, we may very well see Blessed Fr. Seraphim cannonized.
I sincerely hope not. I think that would be a very bad message to send to North America about Orthodoxy. Just my humble opinion, of course.
Not to say that all of his ideas are somehow infallable, but I think that some of the posters on this thread have fallen into a trap of pride.
Funny you should say this. I have heard it said that Fr. Seraphim used to tell anyone who disagreed with him that they were obviously in a state of prelest. It must have made any other discussion impossible, since unless one agreed completely with what he said, by his way of thinking one must have been delusional. But in this instance, it is of course quite easy to say to you: who are you to judge who is in a state of pride and who is not? And how is this related in any
way to the discussion going on here?*
To put so much validity and trust in the reasonings of science, is pure "group vanity" for some mass consciousness.
Hmmm. No one around here seems to be doing that, as far as I can see.
(for the science-groupies out there, this isn't an arguement for science not having a place in the world. just an arguement for putting God first and remembering the unknown variables due to our limited consciousness.)
Who here besides the agnostics or deists isn't struggling in their own feeble way to put God first? Have you even bothered to look at the other threads on evolution on this forum? Why do you appear to assume that people who have an interest in science do not have a sense of awe and wonder about God's glorious creation?
Sigh if you must. I'm not made for this world anyway.
Wow. I'm amazed that you even deign to interact with us poor misguided louts. How can we thank you for gracing us with your presence?
