We are not trying to entice Catholics into the Church since the Church is Catholic, as the Creed states. As to the Roman Church that calls itself “Catholic”, we pray for your repentance and long for the day that you enter into the Body of Christ. I choose not to coddle you and speak as I feel because there are enough people who call themselves “Orthodox” who will tell you that it is all alright, we are both parts of the Body of Christ. As such, there is no need for you to repent. Such people are vipers and wish nothing other than the destruction of your soul. These are the ones that “hate” you, and you truly and individually. Has it ever occurred to you that those of us who hate those that deceive you do so out of love for you? If we didn’t care about those that were deceived, there would be no need to even acknowledge your church, much less hate it.
If you cared about Catholic Christians you would not drive them away by stating that you hate their Church.
I can neither gather nor drive away. That is done by the Holy Spirit. Your statement is false. It is just like saying that I show my love for an abused child by saying I love his abuser. No, even in the secular world we throw those that abuse children is prison. Why should we show any love for an organization that abuses both the body and soul of its members? The problem with Christians today is that they do not stand up for what they believe and call out those that pervert the Truth. And once more, my words do not show a lack of care for Catholic Christians. Only the Orthodox are Catholic and the Orthodox do not bow to Rome. What I hate is the religious organization that claims to be Catholic but is not, just as Christ says about those that claim to be Jews but are not. Just as the true Jews recognized their Savior while the false Jews held on to their religious organization that stood against Christ, so do the members of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church recognize the Truth and correctly believe (Orthodoxia) and do not cling to a political organization 1000 years removed from the Church. Just as the Holy Apostle Paul lamented over the Jews that rejected Christ, so do I lament over those that reject Christ’s Church (and this includes members of my own family). However, I am comforted in the words of Christ that He has sheep that are not in the fold of His Holy Orthodox Church. It is because of this that I will continue to love those sheep in other folds while I will continue to hate those that imprison them in those folds with their lies and deception rather than pointing them to the True Fold of our Lord. To do otherwise would be to betray both those sheep and their Shepherd.
