Go join the Protestants. Formally, I mean. You already have adopted their "theology."
The Old Believers ARE the "canonical Orthodox Church" -- which means the lawful church.
But then, why is your bishop not in Eucharistic union with my bishop? Are you saying I am in an un-canonical or unlawful Church?
А Вы знаeтe, что означаeт Ваш псeвдоним? И почeму он у Вас в родитeльном падeжe?
И нe кажeтся ли Вам, что Вы просто играeтe в экзотику? Мнe - да.
Any-one who does not maintain the faith -- according to apostolic tradition is un-canonical; and, any-one who accepted the Heretical Latin reforms -- such as Pseudo Patriarch Nikon, is an Apostate, and, hence, unable to transmit Apostolic Succession -- e.g. not able to baptize, not able to ordain popes or Bishops; and, so, unless you can show me a 'Bishop' with a Valid blessing...
I'm with-out an Earthly-Bishop, but, if you could show me a Earthly-Bishop with a Valid blessing then I would submit --straightaway.
The Old Believers have the most important Bishop -- the Heavenly Arch Bishop himself -- Christ! Acceptance of the Invalid Apostate Bishops is rejection of the Heavenly Bishop.
I will tell you the same thing I tell them, that High Priest promised "I will build my Church....the gates of Hell will never prevail against it....Lo! I am with you all the days even unto the end of the age/world...those who accept you accept Me...those who reject Me, and those who reject Me reject Him who sent Me."
So you claim that He build His Church on a shallow foundation, and hence Hell has prevailed, and thus call Him a liar. You refuse to accept those whom He sent and deny that He has remained with us, as He promised He will until the close of the age, and rejecting them, you reject Him and His Father. You cannot claim to have Him Whom you thus deny.
You presume to know my position; I said: "I'm with-out an Earthly-Bishop, BUT, if you could SHOW me a Earthly-Bishop with a Valid blessing then I would submit --straightaway. "
"Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. "
So is the master Himself wrong then?
I know some protestants who fall directly under the authority of the same Bishop.
This must be Slander, pure, and, simple -- unless I am mistaken?, because, if the protestants have Christs blessing, then, what ground are you standing on?
