The Roman church today (Frankish Church) is not the one that separated from us in 1054, over this very issue of papal monarchism, as well as the pope's authority to add a new doctrine to the Nicene Creed.

Even Western Christians of 1054 would not recognize their church today.

Ironically, they would feel more at home in the Orthodox Church than their own, particularly when it comes to worship.

This is because Orthodoxy, despite its diverse jurisdictions, has done a far better job of maintaining liturgical integrity and historic practice than have the Roman Catholics within their centralized papal monarchy

Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople and his Synod have issued a special Encyclical in which he takes vehement issue with those whose opposition to the contemporary phenomenon of syncretist ecumenism is based, he claims, on their opposition to dialogue and to the reunion of Christians.

Clearly, Patriarch Bartholomew wants us to believe that ecumenism consists of nothing more than having conversations with other people. As anyone familiar with the field knows, this is misleading to say the least.

Who are these people who refuse to countenance dialogue with heterodox Christians and non-Christians?

They are members of "certain circles that exclusively claim for themselves the title of zealot and defender of Orthodoxy"; they constitute a group of "opponents of every effort for the restoration of unity among Christians" and in their opposition, raise themselves "above Episcopal Synods of the Church to the dangerous point of creating schisms within the Church".

The targets of Patriarch Bartholomew's vehement denunciation are likely all those who have written (or have signed) documents currently circulating in Greece and throughout the Orthodox world, most notably the Confession of Faith Against Ecumenism which is evidently recruiting more signatories daily.

One must stress that the authors and signers of these Confessions are not Old-Calendarists. They are members - often prominent members - of Patriarch Bartholomew's own Church. They may be dissidents; but they are insiders in dissension.

These Confessions of Faith take sharp issue with syncretist ecumenism as currently practiced by Patriarch Bartholomew and the incumbents of all the historic Patriarchates.

As of this writing, literally hundreds of monastic leaders, including Athonites as well as clergy and lay leaders, academics and theologians, throughout Greece and the wider Orthodox world, have actually signed their names to these anti-ecumenist statements.

First, these anti-ecumenist statements clearly are not directed against dialogue with anybody.

Patriarch Bartholomew opts to not dialogue with members of his own constituency who are alienated by his approach to syncretist ecumenism but instead, subjects them to sustained invective

Patriarch Bartholomew's targets appear to be his own sons and daughters, canonically-speaking.

They do not appear in fact to be attacking his ecumenist program because it involves dialogue.

That this group of traditionally-minded people - who clearly reject ecumenism - find themselves targeted by Patriarch Bartholomew enables us to see just how disturbing the ecumenist Patriarchates find this internal opposition, and how forcefully Patriarch Bartholomew has thrown down the gauntlet with respect to the conscientious objection to syncretist ecumenism on the part of a growing body of traditionalists who are willing to see their names publicly associated with a point of view sharply dismissed by the Patriarch of Constantinople.

At least one thing is clear - Patriarch Bartholomew, confronted by the continuing vitality of traditional and therefore anti-ecumenist points of view within the ranks of his own constituency, is now so frustrated that he abandons dialogue, and resorts to extraordinary invective.

Having apparently been forced to forfeit dialogue among his own people so spectacularly, one has to ask if an ecumenist dialogue that has blatantly failed to convince a significant group of those within has much chance of success among those without?

Patriarch Bartholomew, finally, suggests that those who oppose his approach to ecumenism lack love.

This speaking the truth with love [Ephesians 4:14] is of course non-negotiable for true Orthodox Christians.

Truth without love is something other than truth, as love without truth is something other than love.

Each occurs when the other is present; each without the other is something less than itself.

so funny that you a reprobate should not be able to discern that Living water translates into a Spiritual Experience that you have never had.

and I must agree with Oxbore that the catholics on here know nothing about that Spiritual experience of being baptised either, since IT follows a Born Again Experience

Try number two...

I am telling the world that Anthony is as phony a Christian as a three dollar bill...his "Christian testimony" regards his "salvation" is on the net!!!!!

He copied and pasted it!!!!! Here it is!!!

Are you ready to accept the gift of eternal life that Jesus is offering you right now? Let's review what this commitment involves:

I acknowledge I am a sinner in need of a Savior - this is to repent or turn away from sin

I believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead - this is to trust that Jesus paid the full penalty for my sins

I confess Jesus as my Lord and my God - this is to surrender control of my life to Jesus

I receive Jesus as my Savior forever - this is to accept that God has done for me and in me what He promised

Its on an SBC web site....titled "How to be a Christian"...

I have failed him!!!! I have told him over and over, never tell a lie that can be easily proven a lie...but, evidently, I are not a good teacher...

LOL,LOL. You're showing your ignorance yet again. Basically you're unfamiliar with the LIVING WATER that Christ spoke of when He was talking with the woman at the well huh?

Why don't you keep silent because the less you speak the more intelligent you will appear. It's when you speak that you show your lack of Biblical intellect.

But I do care. Really I do. So tell me what your disability is. I don't think I would qualify for disability if I ever had to apply for disability given my net worth. Are you aware that had you invested a mere 2000 dollars in coca cola stock in the 70's and kept re-investing the dividends, today that Coca Cola stock would be worth over 2 million dollars?

I never knew my parents were worth the amount they were till they died. My father was a very intelligent and crafty man.

You are back to your favorite way of dealing with truth from Scripture...cut and run....you should have been a catlick...that is what they do best...

If you remembered your own post, you might be less 'scolding'.

You said, "Show me ONE thing that Jesus said about baptism."

He ordered His Apostles to baptize all nations. Mt. 28:19

what difference do words make. it is What God SAYS that counts, and you are a reprobate, according to HIM.

and for that reason, you know NOTHING about God nor His Word.

as you show constantly on this forum, so keep on claiming, but you are not a teacher of the Word!
