HERETICAL TEACHINGS OF PATRIARCH ATHENAGORAS
WHICH UNDERMINE THE TRUTH OF THE CHURCH
FIRST ABOUT DEFENDERS OF ORTHODOXY
Orthodoxy is the divine-human Body of Christ, was founded by our Lord Jesus Christ and is guided by the Holy Spirit whom He sent from the Father to both comfort and remind His followers of all that He had taught them. There is no other entity like the Church because it is headed by the Godman. Therefore we cannot possibly examine the Church and speak of it or its members as if it were a secular organization. The Church is the source of all truth and the fountain of holiness which sanctifies our spirits, souls and bodies. It is unique and remains far above everything else, the holiest place on earth. For the Church’s members are vessels of Holy Spirit.
Some people have been heard to address members of the Church as being either liberal or conservative, but these are misnomers which cannot be inapplicable to defenders of truth. In Orthodoxy liberal or conservative factions do not exist, because there are only extreme viewpoints in one direction or another. We completely believe Christ is God or we deny Him. We believe, not on multiple churches, but only “in One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church or we believe in no church. Either we keep every commandments, preserve all sacred tradition and respect all holy canons or we don’t. Christ says that if you break one of the least of these commandments you break them all, the same is true of truth, denying one truth, is denying all truth, for Christ is the Truth from heaven.
