H.G Bishop David: On Lukewarmness
« on: December 12, 2013, 01:34:14 AM »
As Christians we all fall in a state of Lukewarmness and we need to remind ourselves of how to go back to God in a humble way, forgoing our pride.

I found this video interesting by Bishop David:

Perhaps a preposition can be inserted into the title: On Lukewarmness.

At first I thought that someone had accused H.G. Bishop David of being lukewarm.

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

OK, it's official. I spend too much time on the forum. The first thing that popped into my head was "Luke Warmodox" and then wondered why HG would bring that up.

Why would anyone?
