Jesus Christ: Our prototype of FREEDOM

To be “free” is usually thought of as having the option to do anything at any time. Real freedom is when doing evil is not an option.

Is there grace outside the Church?

Is God’s grace received only by members of the Church or can there be grace outside the Church? Are only Orthodox Christians saved?

Sunday of the Holy Fathers [Audio sermon]

On the Sunday before Holy Pentecost, we honor the Holy Fathers, especially the Fathers of the First Ecumenical Council, who guide us inerrantly to Christ.

Three kinds of human blindness

The darkness of ignorance

The man blind from birth regains his eyesight and spiritual eyesight from the Lord; whereas the teachers of the law choose to remain in spiritual darkness.

The water of Bethesda became healing water for the body once in a while. The water of Holy Baptism in the Church is healing for the soul always.

Stephen Hawking and Christian Faith

Mr. Hawking’s explanation of “how” the universe was created is very similar to what the Church believes. It’s the “Who” that’s missing from his equation.

I’M AN EVOLUTIONIST!

“Is there any opposition between the theory of evolution and Christianity? An evolutionist Orthodox priest makes a rebuttal to an atheist evolutionist.”

On Faith and Science

St. Anthony’s Monastery in Arizona refused to carry “The Heavenly Banquet”, our book on the Divine Liturgy. Why? Because, according to them, the Theory of Evolution is…un-Orthodox!
