Welcome to Antonious Nikolas
« on: July 14, 2004, 07:44:52 PM »
Let's welcome Antonious Nikolas, who has joined this board as the Oriental Orthodox moderator.  He will be helping Mor Ephrem out.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

I'm grateful to Antonious Nikolas for accepting the position, and know he will be an asset to this section.  May God bless him.
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

Congrats!

Thank you everyone.  I will do my best to be fair.  Please pray for me.

Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

You are welcome back, AN, whenever you want.

I believe with AN as moderator of this forum we can look forward to his continued presence.  I would also say, Axios!  I do pine for Salpy, however; we do need to induce her to return as well, if not as a mod, as a regular Armenian matron for us.  :)
Axios and many years to you, Fr. Trenham!
