Max, I've been following your thread on the faith board, and you seem to mourn "Monarchialism," and warn EOx that they may go the way of us Catholics. Yikes!  Shocked

Just wanted to remind you...Heaven is a Kingdom, not a republic. Smiley

Caffeinator: um . . . yes heaven is a kingdom and not a republic, but the kingdom of heaven is not monarchial. The kingdom of heaven is THEOCRATIC. Smiley

I read the Gospels literally, when they say the Apostles will judge the nations.  Wink

Then you suppose EOx and RC bishops do not operate "at the command of God?"

Caff: depends upon the man.  Some people cry "Lord Lord" and are unknown to Him.

I'm going to argue this from what I suppose to be the EOx POV...

All this time, from the early councils, until now, EOx bishops have been guarding the faith, whether hell is paved with their individual skulls or not, they have kept their faith Orthodox.

Do you not suppose that this is at the "command of God?"

[nitpick]Actually, I've heard that it's paved with priest's skulls/skeletons and bishop's are the lampposts.[/nitpick] Grin
