If this question is addressed to me, and if I understand it correctly, the will of God is revealed to us in the Holy Scriptures - primarily the New Testament; explained by the Holy Church and the Holy fathers; and manifested in the circumstances of our lives.

- Да, сказали "сюда иди".
- Ну, "иди сюда" - это не угроза.
- "Иди сюда" - нет, а "сюда иди" - очень даже.

Metropolitan Paul of ALeppo (Yazigi) wrote in one of his sermons "Sin is wrong understanding of God and wrong attitude of ours souls toward neighbour [i.e. other person]".
While "sin" and "wrong" is from the same root خ-ط-ء and sin is خطيئة (ẖaṭiʾa) and error is خطأ (ẖaṭʾ)and wrong is خاطئ (ẖāṭiʾ).

Any news on his whereabouts and those of his Syriac Orthodox brother?

Council of Nicea:
Εθη ἀρχαῖα κρατείτω. 
Mores antiqui obtineant.
The ancient ways shall prevail.

The sentiment of Nicea in Greek and Latin, translated into English.
