Is here anyone that is thinking of orthodoxy in historical terms ??
Have you thougt of that the true soldiers of Gud has always been minorities , minorities that have been hunted.
See David and Golitath ,
In the early church era there was always spiits where heretical christians where hunting orthodox christians as monophists,Arius and many more, , later we went in in another period with muslims and catholics that where hunting us and kiling us.
I have read about a time where it was a singal bishop Markos the friendly (o evgenikos) that stopped a unioin with Vatican. Bishop Markus is today one of our biggest saints,
In about 1700 AD there was only 60 000 orthodox in Greece left, but it was enough to keep the continouing of the faith and God sent the two saints Kosmas F and Kosma entolos , how helped to create an entire nation of this 60 000 that where left.
My biggest question is , how small can an orthodox group be, to be allowed to call it self as the true orthodox ??
Historically can somebody tell me what have happend to the ones that didn't follow that small orthodox groups historically ??
How could you see the diffrence beetwen the true orthodox and the many ??
This question can look silly today when everboy is taking about unions and love, but the history can hoppfully gives us answers on today's topics.
With Christ love
