Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Its been a blessing these past two years but increasingly I am feeling not welcome here, and the hostilities have devolved to Xanax levels so I am deleting my account.  I love y'all truly, and will miss so many of y'all, but this website is starting to kill me gradually.  I will pray for those who I know need it, pray for me, and I will continue to appreciate all the sincere love, knowledge, respect, and fellowship I received here.  To OrthodoxChristianity.net, I tried to respect y'all, but nobody every gave me any respect or benefit of the doubt, so God has revealed its best like my anti-Chalcedon Fathers before me, to leave and continue always to pray for the best. Thank you for two wonderful years, I will miss y'all Sad Sad Sad

stay blessed,

Sorry to see you distressed. Do not let internet Orthodoxy upset you, it is probably no better or worse than any form of human interaction. It is affected by our remoteness though & reconciliation can be difficult when conflict arises. May God bless you in all you do.

While I have often disagreed with you myself, Habte, I hope it has never been taken at a personal level, as it was certainly never intended that way. We all do what we feel is right to defend and preserve Orthodoxy to the best of our abilities. In your case, I suppose this has led to your leaving this website, which is honestly a bummer, but I also I have to respect because you are doing what you think will preserve your own commitment to the faith, so it can't honestly be a bad thing. Still, like Kerdy, I hope you will come back if you ever feel that it would be beneficial to do so. May God be with you in all that you do, and guide all of your efforts.

Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

I know i always liked your introductions and ends.. they are colorful.. anyway don`t sweat it , that is life to you, people will let you down don`t appreciate you as you like many will, but not all though.. don`t make a drama out of things Smiley

in religion/spirituality you only start living after you are dead.this one i can tell you from experience.. i felt like my life was a living hell and poltergeist at times, like i was conflicting with myself but that is only a stage.. don`t make a drama out of things Smiley

you will be back ...





























to spiritual discussion even if not here..

though my advice is to not rush into things and stay on the forum..

i have been placed on moderation often in here, God only knows, last time for 90 days,i was even banned, yet i continued to come back

don`t let this things influence you

Stay blessed.


For admitting that you are yet another sock puppet of a banned poster--Dan-Romania, I suspect--you are hereby placed on post moderation until Fr. George can ban you again.

Who's "we"?

Habte believe it or not isn't quite representative of the Ethiopian Orthodoxy, if that is what you are referring to.

And because people don't post for a while doesn't mean they're are "gone".

Internetz is serious I guess.

It's incredible how much more desentisized I am now. I still can't look at the Pain Olympics though.
