1Cor. 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
1Cor. 12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
2Cor. 1:12 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.
Eph. 1:8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
Eph. 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
Eph. 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
Col. 1:9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
Col. 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
Col. 2:3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Col. 2:23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
Col. 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Col. 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
James 3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
James 3:15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
2Pet. 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
Rev. 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
Rev. 7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
Rev. 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Rev. 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

St Issac of Syria says: 'It is a great evil for someone to read stunning texts, when in spiritual stature he is still an infant'

St ephraim says: 'Do not read the most brilliant texts, lest the demon of haughtiness capture your soul.

Still on my vampire stint at the moment. Recently read Dead and Gone the nineth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Plowing through the Cirque du Freak series as it becomes available from the library. Have a stack of Diana Wynne Jones to get through before the library starts asking for them back. Serious reading includes The Illness and Cure of the Soul in the Orthodox Tradition.

Orthodoxy and Heresy in Earliest Christianity by Walter Bauer

The thesis is essentially that some forms of Christianity that were later termed "heresy" were actually the native forms of Christianity established by some of the apostles, and that there was no pure dogma or anything of the sort to begin with.  We'll see if it's any good.

Blessed Theoplact's commentary on the Gospels.

The Evergetinos (Sayings of the Desert Fathers)

Spiritual Psalter by St Ephraim the Syrian

The Art of Prayer

Archbishop Averky of blessed memory's The Apocalypse.

Translated by Seraphim Rose

St Leo The Great:
Admonitions
http://www.ccel.org/ccel/schaff/npnf212.iii.iv.iv.xiv.html

This is for the complete healing and restoration of the soul.
For deliverance from hell.
And inheritance of the kingdom.

The most grievious thing that I suffer with is self conceit.

It is a trully accursed passion, as St Maximos has stated.

The greatest book other than the bible is the Philokalia.

The whole book of Philokalia is on this website, I figured out how to unlock it so I can print it.

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=Zu6&q=philokalia+st+michael&aq=f&aqi=&oq=

Just click on the first site and it will download.

Beware of reading these books without a spiritual father to guide you.

They are very very advanced in alot of the writings.

But the knowledge contained in them is so marlevous.

1Cor. 1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

One of the greatest books ever created.

Read with caution.

Reading these books is like diving into another world

1Cor. 8:1 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.

Theres a very important chapter in this book called 'Dangers of delusion'
http://www.philokalia.org/on_the_prayer_of_jesus.htm


You have to be very careful when reading these books.

It can make people crazy.

It can destroy you.

You just have to be careful when trying to practice the things written in these most sublime books.

Its mainly in praying that you must be careful.

http://www.philokalia.org/on_the_prayer_of_jesus.htm

This is a prayer which can be practiced by those without a spiritual father to some extent.

I'm not sure. Maybe some worry that if a person reads it, that they'll getting ultra-zealous and start doing stuff like selling off everything they own, doing extreme fasts, praying for hours on end, etc. Not that those things are bad per se in Orthodoxy, but the problem might be that there is the worry that the person doing those things might get burnt out or otherwise spiritually harm themselves by trying to do too much. Generally the Orthodox spiritual life is supposed to be about a life long process of gradual growth, albeit punctuated here and there with significant events, and not about going from zero to sixty in mere seconds because you got motivated by something you read in a book. That would be my guess, anyway.

Yes, I think you are probably right. It reminds me of something I was reading the other day:

"St. Moses the Black appears to have been zealous in everything that he undertook, and he soon became discouraged for he felt he was not becoming a perfect monk advanced in all the degrees of spiritual perfection. Early one morning before sunrise St. Isadore, the abbot of the monastary, took Brother Moses up on the roof of the monastary and together they watched the first rays of the dawn come over the horizon. They stayed on the roof until the new day had begun, and then the abbot said that only slowly do the rays of the sun drive away the night and usher in the new day and thus only slowly does one become a perfect contemplative."          [From The Ancient Black Christians ]

I think there is a yet unpublished fifth volume in English, so it's probably inaccurate for guys like myself, who only read things translated into English, to say something like "I've read the Philokalia". If memory serves, there are indeed post-schism saints in the collection.

After Nine Hundred Years by Fr. Yves Congar, O.P.

If you are looking for a balanced perspective towards the "Oriental Schism" of 1054 (his words), this is NOT the book to read.  Not only is this book blatantly unobjective and slanderous towards the Orthodox, even the "errors" of the Catholic Church he regards as to be something not as bad as what the Orthodox have done.  Steven Runciman and Francis Dvornik were much more balanced in their respective works on the schism (Runciman is a favorite author of mine).  Then again, this book is regarded as official Catholic teaching as it bears both the imprimatur and nihil obstat so maybe I shouldn't be too astonished.

I agree 100%. But be aware that saying such things will bring you much grief around here. But I'm with you, and I respect you for stating the truth.

Nah, he's just a boring little boy, that's all. I was never struck by any particular evil, unless you call dull writing evil.  Wink

I'm due for my annual re-reading of the Harry Potter series. Probably do that as soon as I've had my fill of Vampires. I'm looking forward to the last HP book coming to the big screen.   Smiley
