Introducing our new General Forums moderator: Mor Ephrem
« on: November 08, 2013, 04:08:24 PM »
The great Mor Ephrem has decided to climb back in the saddle and become the General Forums moderator.  Even though he'll only be listed on "Christian News," he'll be responsible for all 5 (well, 7 including the sub-fora) of the General Forums.

AXIOS! 
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Morey Refutation Project needs more moderating.

It is a tough job, but I think Mortheist is up to the task!

Exactly.  Even as we speak, one of his avatars is reading this message, another is replying to a pm I sent him, a third is heading to vespers, a fourth is eating a Hungry Man dinner (fried chicken, with the brownie - on a Friday!) and a fifth is rescuing Carmen from the unwanted attentions of Howard Stern and Baba Booey.

Worthy!

Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Linguistically, dude is being increasing used by and for females and males, but Axia is reserved for females.

You are so correct, Mor's a dude. If only his masculine voice could be heard over the Internet.

I feel like Michael Jordan has left his administrative duties to come back and play basketball with us again...

Trust me, you do NOT want me on your basketball team.

It was a little bit of an inside-joke. I'm sure Mor understands.

You are confusing us.

Yeah, Cyrillic.  Go easy on the cider.

Congrats.

Remember, I never do anything wrong. ;)

(Ok, maybe that just goes for being reckless about forum rules and things like that.)

Morey Refutation Project needs more moderating.

LOL, I never understood what that was.  I figured, based on the level of activity when I rejoined OCNet, Morey must've been refuted. 

We could only wish. I recall the database got corrupted and the topic was lost with no interest to recreate and continue, I guess.

As a HUGE favor to Mor I found the original thread that kicked off the "Morey Refutation Project" and have inserted it into two long-dead threads that questioned the purpose of that subforum.

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

I was wondering if there was a hazing ritual for new mods.  Thanks.  :P
