Lord have mercy...
« on: December 08, 2005, 11:44:39 AM »
I have sinned. Oh my God, have I sineed!!!!!! The past 2 days I released what I have done.
Please my brothers in Christ forgive me for ever leaving the most holy Orthodox Church.
The Church that has been most blessed by our Lord Jesus Christ. Only a few hours in Orthodoxy
and most of the problems in my life are starting to be solved. God might have been punishing me
or trying to show me that I was wrong. Blessed be God for ever showing to me that I had been
fooled by the evil one into leaving the Church.

My brothers please accept me back. Please forgive my sins for I have sinned more than any of you.
Please pray that now my life will be back on track and these so improtant things in my life that have
been going wrong will now gow right.

Lord have mercy!!!! :'(

Welcome back!  You are experiencing a bout of joy but just be ware that the hard reality of Orthodoxy will set in eventually. Please be prepared by finding a confessor/spiritual father soon.

Please Buy My Book!

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

Lord, have mercy.
"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

God is merciful Armando,
Go and confess to an Orthodox Priest and be recieved back.

With prayers,
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

I am so overjoyed to read these words from you...I have been thinking about you and praying for this ever since I read your first message on this site.

Glory to God! Trust and believe that He will have mercy on you. I believe He has forgiven me, and my sins are much greater than anything you have done.
