Err, it is a good idea for one to read the entire thread before posting a hot response. This is a good example!  ;)

Roman Catholics will Penetrate into Orthodox Christian Hubs in Serbia

Vatican view Serbian entry into European Union as an opportunity to spread Roman Catholic dominance into the country. They will use it to penetrate into Orthodox Christian hubs in Serbia and manipulate the situation in complete favor of Vatican imperial agenda.

I'm pretty surprised by how much conversation has been generated by this -- and it's only Wednesday.

I don't think I've ever heard of theorthodoxchurch.info before.

I have always believed that if our Orthodox faith is strong enough and that we know the difference in the two great religions that no amount of penetration by the RCC can effect our Church.   Now, thats not to say that the RCC doesnt have the worlds greatest PR office which could effect even the most faithful Orthodox, it is important to know your faith and to keep to the truth.

Nice that you said "PR" and not "propaganda".  :)

We in Orthodoxy can only dream of such a means to get the word out.  I guess wealth and its wise use is a big factor....

Truth is its own power. I wouldn't pine over the material wealth of one church or another. The church of Russia has great wealth today, yet she survived on next to nothing during the brutal seizure of most things material. likewise the great Church of Constantinople survives to bear witness to the truth of the Faith in spite of the loss of the greatest of temples, the loss of millions upon millions of faithful and most of its once vast temporal riches, treasures and relics.

I  believe that even though some faiths might not have the fullness of 'Truth' as the Orthodox do, after all  we do live in a sinful and limited world, but that each Christian faith has  its own  potential in trying to get others to achieve a unity with God...I say this because of the ability  the  Evangelicals have in reaching the downtrodden as well as the Roman Catholics with the 'structural' ability that enables them  to support  missionaries, hospitals, etc.  So best not to knock anyone for the 'cultural' gifts God has given to them.   

We should rejoice  when a person is capable of achieving the fullness of the Orthodox Church, but shouldn't condemn those  tending to the needs of others that might never achieve that fullness.  God has His own plans and purpose. :angel:
