The Danger of Idolatry Today

Biblical Theology - 17 December 2017

A fundamental demand of Christianity is personal renewal, not as a static event which is accomplished automatically, once and for all, but as a continuous, dynamic progression, with mistakes and corrections.

On Almsgiving

Wisdom & Word - 17 December 2017

According to Saint Basil, there are three things which incline us towards doing good, as I’ve mentioned to you before. We may do so because we fear damnation, in which case we’re in the position of a servant. Perhaps we wish to gain a reward, which puts us in the position of a paid employee. Or we d...

It feels the betrayal

Words of Life - 16 December 2017

An Address on Pietism

Ethics - 15 December 2017

We conceal a serpent in our hearts, a great heresy, the other side of the coin called Ecumenism, and it’s known as pietism. Its parents are fear and wickedness.

Whether you live for five years or a hundred and five is of no consequence. What matters is the health of the soul. Good for those, who, in a case of illness face it with repentance! Whether they live or not, they’ll be ready. The Lord’s waiting. He’s waiting at Jacob’s well for every soul, no mat...

Christ and the Social Problem

Wisdom & Word - 13 December 2017

Those who take a romantic and external view of the human person transfer wickedness from the person onto society, which is why they proclaim that any improvement in society wi...

Everything’s deceptive

Words of Life - 13 December 2017

Your life on earth is a strait-jacket. Everything betrays you: family, friends, acquaintances, riches, sensory pleasures. Even your own body will leave you at some point. All the elements of nature deceive you. So make sure you cleave to God, because He alone is love....
