The Church can not, and will never be divided, what people call divisions is actually the formation of false "churches" created by individuals who separate from God, change the faith, preach their own gospel, occupy key positions, and gain political power and control. This very same thing happened with the pharisees, forefathers of today's so called "jews", Nestorians, Roman Catholics, Coptics, and today's new false churches like the Moscow Patriarchate
, one of the most dreadful and pernicious false churches in the world, founded by the revolutionaries, to disseminate their antichristian liberal ideology, and enslave people to the illegal and unorthodox revolutionary political world, where the Truth is replaced by falsehood, and the Christian Life, by a wordly life.
Today's so called divisions, were caused by the revolutionary states, who created their puppet false churches, and try by all means to wipe the Church of Christ from the face of the earth, even by the use of violence, as it is evident in today's actions of Patriach
Bartholomew I, who is viciously attacking the True Orthodox Monastery of Esphigmenou in Mount Athos www.esphigmenou.com
by proxi, using the revolutionary Greek State, simply because they refuse to accept the patriarch's new gospel.
Why is there so much hatred and hostility from the revolutionary patriarchates towards the True Orthodox Church, and such a warmth and closeness with jews, catholics, coptics, moslems and other religious institutions? Because their attacks are directed towards the Church of Christ, and those who rightfully preach the Truth, and lead a Christian Life.I know you disagree with their positions and theology and history... But, just as we would ask people to courteously refer to your Church, we ask you to use the proper titles of the hierarchs and Patriarchates of our Church - it is actually the Patriarchate of Moscow and all Russia, not the "so-called"... and he is Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople, not the "so-called." I find it ironic in a thread about divisiveness' source that you would use such language. Please be more respectful in the future.
