Greek Evangelical Fellowship
« on: April 05, 2003, 04:42:55 PM »
I ran across this group on while surfing the internet. Here is ther site:http://netministries.org/see/churches.exe/ch18299 Does anyone know much about them. Here is a description from their site:

We are a Ministry Associated with the North American Synod of the Greek Evangelical Church (A Reformed Church Body) with its roots in both the 16th century reformation (Luther, Calvin Zwingly) as well the Reformation which took place in the Greek speaking world by such great leaders as the Orthodox Patriarch Cyril Loucaris and Zacharias Gerganos.

Based solely on that, these sound like vagantes.
Life is just one disappointment after another.

Cyril Lucaris was a Calvinist, though.  Read The Great Church in Captivity by Runciman for a well-told and highly entertaining account (at some times very sad, though) of all the intrigue that occurred at that time between Jesuits, Protestants, and rival Patriarchs of Constantinople.

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.

Hey Anastasios, would you please fix the link?  It doesn't work.  Thanks!

"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."
