 Huh I'd agree with Michał Kalina on this, but it's most likely (99.9%) not that they're trying to convert you, but that they are expressing their views, being Orthodox Christians, and loving their faith.  laugh

Just a better reason to pray for them. It is not for me to judge anyone. I am a sinner and got my own sins-problems to
deal with it.

Just bothers me.  I posted a long history about my spiritual search, how I'm currently struggling and what I'm struggling with, and they delete my thread even though I said nothing incendiary about the RCC or anybody.  I'll post the text here, if I must, to prove myself.  I posted it again, and they banned me.  So, it seems as if they're not concerned with having any Catholics offer me advice.

I just received this e-mail from one of the mods:

Quote
Chris,

 

You signed up to Catholic Answers Forums in 2006. Since then, you've frequently posted about your crises of faith, your mental health concerns like depression and suicidal thoughts, your scrupulosity, your doubts regarding the faith and your curiosity about other religions like Islam, Buddhism, Orthodoxy, and atheism, and your vocational pursuits of religious life, the priesthood, and marriage. Your posts go from typical discussion to deep depressions to angry and abusive rants full of blame that others pushed you into acting in inappropriate ways. You frequently complain that you agree with anything a person of authority tells you but later regret it, feeling like you were not honest with the person and his guidance is therefore invalid so you ignore his guidance, feel more empty, and search elsewhere where you again rush in earnestly to repeat the cycle.

 

It is clear to us that you are suffering and that you are longing deeply for God. We know that God loves you and has called you by name. For that reason, we've counseled and guided but have allowed you to continue posting at Catholic Answers Forums. Your threats and attacks have only escalated and it is clear that the time you're spending at Catholic Answers Forums, OrthodoxChristianity.net, and other online religious forums is hurting you and contributing to your suffering. It is in your best interest that you be under the spiritual authority of a local priest or spiritual director who is aware of your full history so that he or she may place you under obedience to stop visiting all of the online sites and forums and to focus on your local community where support can come from your psychiatrist, psychologist, and/or counselor working in conjunction with your spiritual advisor and the church community.

 

It is out of love for you and concern for your salvation that I give you the following direction:

  • Print this email, without edit, and take it to your Catholic priest and the OCA priest you're consulting.
    Ask your Catholic priest to place you under his spiritual authority and to guide you until you are connected to a spiritual director skilled in working with people who are afflicted by scrupulosity.
    Be obedient to your priest's direction, even if you disagree or think he doesn't understand.

I think the mod is right.  Except for the scrupulosity part.

So, this may have to be my last post.  But I'm horrible at quitting cold turkey.

Some wonderful advice there.  This website is more tares than wheat, IMO.  If I knew what was good for me, I would leave too.  I pray that the Lord gives you the strength and a little to me too.

I find this website to be full of great wisdom, and have learned countless things about my Faith from it.

Some folks like to engage in negative debates, bully others, criticize and in fact, add nothing of true quality to any discussion.  They just seem to have nothing better to do with their time, or perhaps they simply like to confuse folks and accidentally, or not, make them doubt Orthodoxy.

Just stay away from those posters, and those threads.

Peace & Grace to you Big Chris aka Mint  Smiley

I have read some of your posts of which some I understand – some I do not. I too think these mods are offering you some sound advice. I commend you for recognizing that yourself with the exception of the scrupulosity part.

Consider that the only thing being suggested to quit ‘cold turkey’ (for a time anyway) are these type of web sites. You would not be ‘quitting’ anything of a spiritual quest but transferring your efforts toward the Church and Christ Himself.  I can only speak for myself but as wonderful of a blessing as OC.net has been in my life it only serves to expand my knowledge and offer spiritual insight and challenges to help me grow in my faith. It could not (for me anyway) lead to faith or fill the emptiness in my soul that can only be eternally filled by the living God our Lord Jesus Christ. It certainly could however be used against me as a distraction thus postponing my repentance.  If you follow their advice and get together with a Priest (Catholicism or Orthodoxy), accepting his guidance and authority, partake of the sacraments, etc.  and put the same energy and effort into these things as you have these web sites you may find it far more rewarding to your spiritual life.

I don’t know you but offer my love as God does. I pray for your journey and enrichment. I pray that you find the Truth and comfort in God that you have already begun looking for.
 
May God continue to bless you, and may you respond to that Grace and begin your Journey.

Please pray for me too, as I am a repenting sinner that needs to continue turning God’s Grace into reality by my own actions and obedience as well.

In Christ,

Scott

I don't think you need to quit cold turkey but I do think that engaging at so many forums is just spinning you on your heels. I agree with the advice to seek guidance from one spiritual advisor you feel comfortable with for help. At least to get a sound foundation somewhere.

Good luck to you! God bless you!

Been there before bro, I mean seriously walked your shoes. May God have mercy on you.

The internet has become nasty as of late, and I'm sure I have contributed to that nastiness but sometimes for your mental health you need to walk away from it for awhile. Seriously I was addicted to message boards for years and it was only recently that I can leave it at will because it's been that awful (not here, just many other places I frequent)

I think what the moderator sent you was awesome and truly cares.

Is this the Region, this the Soil, the Clime,
Said then the lost Arch-Angel, this the seat
That we must change for Heav'n, this mournful gloom
For that celestial light? Be it so, since he
Who now is Sovran can dispose and bid
What shall be right: fardest from him is best
Whom reason hath equald, force hath made supream
Above his equals. Farewel happy Fields
Where Joy for ever dwells: Hail horrours, hail
Infernal world, and thou profoundest Hell
Receive thy new Possessor: One who brings
A mind not to be chang'd by Place or Time.
The mind is its own place, and in it self
Can make a Heav'n of Hell, a Hell of Heav'n.
What matter where, if I be still the same,
And what I should be, all but less then he
Whom Thunder hath made greater? Here at least
We shall be free; th' Almighty hath not built
Here for his envy, will not drive us hence:
Here we may reign secure, and in my choyce
To reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heav'n.
