OrthodoxViews tries to fill a gap in understanding current world events in the right context of orthodox teachings of the Holy Fathers as opposed to fashionable interpretations of the end times offered by various evangelical, protestant, catholic or other modernistic so called “churches”.
Please keep us in your prayers that our Lord Jesus Christ, His Holy Mother and all the Saints will help us in our endeavor.
This is no easy task, especially that the world is now preparing for the arrival of the charismatic world leader that will “solve” all of humanity’s problems. But, in order achieve this, these problems have to be created first ! Everything that we see happening around us today is part of this plan – to prepare the path for the antihrist, his servants are hard at work today !
St Seraphim Rose wrote extensively, back in the 70’s and 80’s, about where the world was headed emphasizing on the dangers facing our faith in the years to come – and here we are – 30 some year later and everything is so much more obvious !
We, as Orthodox Christians, seeing the sword coming (as described in Ezekiel 33), have to warn the others ! This duty is best expressed by the words of St Basil The Great when he said (ep. 92):
“Today, while the overall teachings of the Fathers is under attack and the shipwrecks of Faith are numerous, the mouths of the faithful are silent. Anyone who is capable of speaking the truth but remains silent, will be heavily judged by God, especially in this case, where the faith and the very foundation of the entire Chuch of the Orthodox is in danger. To remain silent under these circumstances is to betray these, and the appropriate witness belongs to those that reproach (stand up for the faith).”
We hope you will enjoy reading and spreading what we have to say !
With love in Christ,
