Saw this on twitter. Pretty weird in my opinion.



I want to tweet back (if i had unlimited characters):

Arius tweets: "God has not always been Father; there was a moment when he was alone, and was not yet Father: later he became so."

Or we could just recognize that the idea that social media will become a necessary part of Christian evangelism in the coming century is a good one. Not every idea the heterodox have is a bad one, you know.

Yeah, but this could start a slippery slope. They might next tweet the Pope's secret recipe for souvlaki. Greeks using Greek cooking recipe from the Vatican?!?! Is truly outrage!!!

Our Patriarchs are Successors of the Apostles, appointed by God. Worry about your sins, have faith in The Lord for everything else.


Arius tweets: "God has not always been Father; there was a moment when he was alone, and was not yet Father: later he became so."



To say the Father was not always the Father could be seen a heresy. God is always the Father, before all ages. God is never separate, God is the Son and the Holy Spirit always. God said "I AM," not I was or I will be.

They both access the same internet, who are you to say one is better than the other or judge anyone for preferring one over the other?

And FWIW, these are our Fathers too, you know.

good question

I used to always use firefox, but lately I have been transitioning to google chrome. I prefer to use firefox for watching youtube videos because there are no ads then because it has an ad blocker. Anyway, on the google chrome I had forum things and I was writing there so I left it there.

There's adblock available for Google Chrome as well.

I know!!!

I did not follow the Greek Orthodox Church to read junk from the heretic of old rome! I am unfollowing them in protest

Maybe the Church should do something instead of having heretics do all the work.

This is not the twitter account of the Green Patriarch. he has his own twitter account.

Not sure whether you're being sarcastic or not.
