One wonders what St. Evagrius, or any of the Desert Fathers, would have said about religious discussion forums.
St. Ephraim the Syrian said:
O Lord and Master of my life, give me not the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust for power and idle talk.
But grant unto me, Thy servant, a spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love.
Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see mine own faults and not to judge my brother. For blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages. Amen.
Blessed is the man that manages to post regularly on oc.net and not violate any of the above!
