I'm in ROCOR and always go to Russia for any time I can spare in order to breathe the air of freedom, but one day I will make a pilgrimage to San Francisco.


LOL, I was so drowsy when I read that I thought he was serious. The last Ilyin I met online was a practicing Old Believer who openly supported ISIS, so I thought this was a name-madness thing.

I need a link to this, immediately.


Look up for Vladimir Ilin. He seems to be in a Wahhabi vibe lately, yet claims to be Staroveryy. I guess denying the Trinity and having (removed) dreams about "breaking the cross" is better than joining three fingers at point. He also posts Nazi and Esoteric BS sometimes, clearly a moron with identity issues. I hope some long-bearded kolkhoznik kicks his rump very hard.

Hi, RaphaCam-

I've edited your post to be in keeping with the forum's rules about obscenity/profanity. This is an informal warning, and I encourage you to give the Rules a perusal here. Specifically:

* Obscenity, Blasphemy, Profanity, etc. -- Obscenities and blasphemies are not permitted anywhere on the forum. To accommodate strong polemics on the Private Forum, we will permit a few of the stronger scatological (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/scatological) profanities there. These words, however, will be permitted ONLY on the Private Forum; their use on the Public Forum is still forbidden. Other words such as "damn" and "hell", when used as expletives, will be permitted on all Public and Private boards as long as they're not used as part of a blasphemy. We reserve the right to moderate some language not on the list if it is way outside the bounds of common decency. If you're not sure about the appropriateness of a word or expression, please PM a moderator before using it on the forum.  Except for "BS," all acronyms (STFU, WTF, etc.), abbreviations (F-off, etc.), and semi-censored versions (F**K, BULLS**T, etc.) of forbidden words are also forbidden.  Quite simply, harsh, obscene, or foul language is not appropriate for an Orthodox Christian message board.  Our Lord is present even in the forums and we don't feel like hosting your foul language on our servers--free expression is one thing, but on a Christian message board you will have to act like a Christian even in a theoretically unmoderated sub-section of the board.


Thanks for your cooperation! If you have any questions or concerns, please PM me.

I looked up that guy on FB after you mentioned him. Why does it not surprise me that he also "Likes" Aleksandr Dugin and a whole bunch of "alt-right"/neoreactionary pages? He probably posts on /pol/, too.
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

He was kicked out from those alt-right groups after he went that far AFAIK. Dugin is strongly anti-Salafi and at worst a now-crypto-Gnostic, but he's crazy too, I guess weirdness gathers weirdness.

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

A big problem with the common sense standard for religion is its arbitrariness. There are probably millions of people with opposite views who think that their own view is "common sense".

I don't believe Prince is dead. I believe his death was likely staged/faked.  So am I allowed to criticize him since he's not dead?   

The Illuminati / Hollywood fakes deaths all the time.  A couple of famous examples of our generation are Princess Diana, whose death was obviously faked, and O.J. Simpson, who never killed Ron and Nicole.   No one did. The whole murder trial was faked/staged and everyone (O.J., LAPD, DA's office, Goldman family, all the attorneys on both sides, Judge Ito, Press / Hollywood) were in on the whole psy-op.

So to rephrase, if we say pure Orthodoxy is 1, and pure heresy such as Arianism, Gnosticism and so on is 0, and then condescend to allow that non-Orthodox Churches which believe in the Trinity, the essentials of the faith as decided at Nicea, follow the canonical scriptures, and so on, could be given a value between 0 and 1 depending on how close to Orthodoxy they are, with some traditionalist Old Catholics and continuing Anglicans being 0.9, John Wesley being 0.85, and so on, I would say that the Holiness Movement is at least 0.3 or greater when not Charismatic, but Pentecostal churches are generally between 0 and 0.3 due to the extreme divergence in praxis.  So a more severe error, but a different error from that your specific church made.

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

I just want to clarify that I am not posting this because I agree with what Trisigion says above or that I find it particularly edifying. To me, he is nothing more than a sexy piece of meat.  But I just can't stand a pouty (albeit no less sexy) piece of meat.

Words are the language of this world, "I told you so" is the language of the age to come.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Russia has lived through that before, and honestly, swapping communism and the 'party' for 'Orthodox Church member' is a step backwards....
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

I find that amusing people are so concerned about breaking the VII commandment while enthusiastically breaking the IX.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34
