The 'hostility' as you would put it is against people ignoring these facts and just hoping that we all join hands and hug and take in the moment with a nice cup of tea.
No brother, its a lot more serious than that. It's called grieving
the Holy Spirit"And grieve not the holy Spirit of God; whereby you are sealed unto the day of redemption."
"Let all bitterness, and anger, and indignation, and clamour, and blasphemy, be put away from you, with all malice. And be ye kind to another; forgiving one another, even as God hath forgiven you in Christ." Ephesians, 4:30-32 DR
Have you even considered for one moment the investment of grace The Holy Trinity has made to bring about such events? The human suffering and persecution that comes with obedience to such graces? The impact on the community and lives of the simple ones, not theologically imbued, in the world who have responded in faith, believing, and have amended their lives and turned from sin to lead holy lives? What is the purpose of life? Theological scrutiny to block the movement of the Holy Spirit, or the salvation of all mankind?
One must ask oneself, whose side are we on?
And I'm not talking about blanket agreement with every claimed apparition that comes down the pike. I'm talking about acquiring discernment brother....being able to discern what is of God and what is not of God.
QUESTION: Is it just as bad to err by criticizing that which is God's work, as it is not to expose that which is not God's work?
ANSWER: No. It is much, much worse. You have just pulled up by the roots, the wheat that was growing alongside the tares. There is an accounting to be made, by all of us, when we undo the works of God.
QUESTION: How then do we proceed without compromising the truth or injuring souls, or falling into the serious sin of opposing God?
ANSWER: Acquire true discernment. Until then, be silent.
Better we should live from the heart, in humble mindedness, considering ourselves no authority on such things as are beyond us. And with discernment,
and sincere interest for God's agenda, observe and see if there be fruits in keeping with the Holy Orthodox Faith.
Not readily believing every report, that may well, as has been proven here, be gossip, bringing us under the judgment of God, Who will upon observing our behavior; repent of His mercy towards us in our erring ways, and pronounce justly, against us, the very pronouncement we have made against our brother, be he innocent or guilty.
This is precisely what I meant, when I said
For the peace and good of everyone, why are we focusing on disagreements that build walls and block grace?
For the "correct" who have sown division, and withstood the Holy Spirit in His work of bringing all men to salvation, there is good reason to fear..
The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. I pose this question to us all:
Whose side are you on?
