The Orthodox Revolutionary

I like their style. Check out the webpage:






The Orthodox Revolutionary

quote:
We also intend to foment revolution outside the walls of Eastern Orthodoxy. Multitudes of Catholics recoil from the “guitar Masses” and “liturgical dance” that pass for worship since the Second Vatican Council. But unwilling to leave mainstream Catholicism for Marcel Lefebvre’s Traditionalists or flaky splinter groups like the Old Catholics, today’s Catholics are forced to endure patiently while the mainstream church makes shipwreck of the Mass and Catholic theology. What a revolution we would have if we brought these multitudes of unhappy Catholics into Eastern Orthodoxy!

Likewise, we must foment revolution within Protestantism. Today, increasing numbers of Protestants find themselves alienated from the vacuous mega-churches that bear more resemblance to a rock concert than to a house of prayer. Yearning for a more historical worship service, these disaffected seekers often find themselves gravitating to the stability and historical continuity that traditional “Reformed” denominations offer. Sadly, this means that they now have to swallow the unpalatable dogmas of Calvinism. Were we to show these uprooted Protestants the ancient, unchanged truths of Eastern Orthodoxy, what a torrent of converts would flood into our churches!"

I'm not so sure: I have a feeling they might simply tout old polemics that any sophisticated Roman Catholic or Protestant wont even bother with. The fact that they are planning to try and debunk evolution already makes me uneasy. We'll see though

What do you mean by sophisticated? Do you mean modernist and liberal protestants and Roman Catholics?

Also, in regards to evolution, do you believe Adam and Eve really existed in the past as individuals or do you believe the whole account to be a myth and thus not real people at all?

Jnorm,

I meant typical polemics, aka brushing over the filioque and saying it is a double precession while not taking into account the language difference between the latin word and the greek word used for 'proceeds'. Of course, I may be worrying about nothing.

As for Adam and Eve, I believe that they can co-exist with evolution. So I do believe they were actual people (mythologizing their existence makes no theological sense to me).

AARRGGGHHHH!

Show some respect! This dude calls St. Augustine "disgustin'-Augustine".

For shame...

Ikonophile, perhaps you should defend "Saint" Augustine here:

No need. You actually quoted my e-mail in your blog post.

I think there have already been balanced views of Augustine by other more capable persons.
