The Powers Who Pull the Strings

A blessed New Year to all! Once again, more evidence emerges which clearly indicated that the U.S. State Department is one of the real powers behind the Ecumenical Patriarch's anti-Church actions in Ukraine. Mike Pompeo, current Secretary of State, is set to be in Ukraine and will be meeting with leaders of the false church …

Go to Sleep, Everything is Just Fine

"Until the last decade or so the development of what it is perhaps still too early to call 'American Orthodoxy' had been largely unconscious, as it indeed remains in the majority of those who call themselves "Orthodox" today.  But, as the history of Orthodoxy in America has made abundantly clear, "unconscious" Orthodoxy is but a …

KGB, CIA, and the Deconstruction of Orthodoxy

“Put not your trust in princes, in the sons of men, in whom there is no salvation” Ps. 145/146:3 It is vital to understand that the current spiritual sickness in the Ecumenical Patriarchate (EP) has been festering for well over a century now. Understanding at least to some degree historical context is of utmost importance. …

Refusing Fellowship with Schismatics Guards true Unity

The brief synopsis in English of the statement of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) under His Beatitude, Met. Onuphy, is well worth a read. In it, the reader will note vital themes that have been echoed in my blog and by others. The divisive, one may even say diabolical, actions of the EP in Ukraine …

The Integration of State and Religion: A Globalist Agenda

In America, we have a convenient delusion that is maintained through various means. This delusion is the "separation of church and state." On the contrary, the U.S. Government is most willing to utilize "religion" for the propagation of its agenda. In fact, it is, I believe, not a stretch to posit that the current global …

The Narrow Blindness of False Unity: An Appeal to Orthodox Greeks

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem ...” or we may now lament, “O Constantinople, Constantinople!” * Once you were a defender of true Orthodoxy, and now you have begun to promote worldly political agendas.

Of This Unity, They Speak

“Like the Archangel Michael, O glorious one, thou didst vie with an earthly Lucifer who, grievously puffed up with pride, set his throne higher than the stars, and thou didst say, Let us stand aright! Let us stand in the precious traditions of the Fathers!” (Matins for St. Photios the Great. A verse from the …

Constantinople and Alexandria: Dollar-bearing Hierarchs and the Service of Mammon

The news that The Patriarch of Alexandria has commemorated Epiphany of Apostasy and the schismatic group in Ukraine brings great sadness.  Contrary to the stated intent, such an action will only further the flames of schism which the Ecumenical Patriarch is fanning throughout the Orthodox world. No matter how one dresses it up, the betrayal of …

Black Crows and White Doves: the Deception of False Orthodoxy

Below is a translation I made from Russian of one of Met. Luke of Zaporozhye's most timely writings - Christ is in our midst, my dear readers. Black crows and white doves. “I would have you know, brothers, that the Gospel that was preached by me is not according to man. For I did not …

Unrepentant Reconciliation: the EP’s Novel Path to “Unity”

Peace, peace, they say when there is no peace (Jer. 6:14). One of the sad misconceptions promoted by supporters of the Ecumenical Patriarchate's actions in Ukraine is that the EP was simply reconciling those who were estranged from the Church. It was only goodwill and a desire to heal schism that motivated the EP. They …
