ΑΘΕΪΣΜΟΣ – ΑΠΑΝΤΗΣΕΙΣ

Από τον αθεϊσμό στην Ορθόδοξη Πίστη:

Η μεταστροφή του π. Seraphim Rose, ΗΠΑ (+1982)

«Ἐπαναλαμβάνοντας τή γνωστή φράσι τοῦ Nietzsche, ὁ Εὐγένιος Rose [ὁ μετέπειτα π. Seraphim Rose] εἶπε στήν Alison ὅτι πίστευε πώς ὁ Θεός πέθανε (Ὁ Nietzsche ἔχει χρησιμοποιήσει αὐτή τή φράσι, ἀλλά ἡ ἀρχική πατρότητα ἀνήκει στόν ἀντι–ἐπαναστάτη ρωμαιοκαθολικό συγγραφέα Joseph de Maistre, ὁ ὁποῖος τήν ἀνέφερε ὅταν ξέσπασε ἡ Γαλλική Ἐπανάστασι)»(ΙΔ, 83).

«Ἐπαναστατώντας ἐναντίον διαφόρων μορφῶν τοῦ Χριστιανισμοῦ μέ τίς ὁποῖες εἶχε ἔλθει προσωπικά σ᾽ ἐπαφή, ὁ νοῦς του προσπαθοῦσε νά πείση τήν καρδιά του ὅτι δέν πίστευε. Ἤ ὅπως εἰρωνικά θά τό ἔθετε ὁ Dostoyevsky: “Ἄν ἀνακάλυπτε ὅτι πίστευε στό Θεό τότε θά πίστευε σ᾽ Αὐτόν, ἀλλά ἐπειδή δέν γνώριζε ὅτι πίστευε σ᾽ Αὐτόν, γι’ αὐτό δέν πίστευε σ᾽ Αὐτόν”(Fiodor Dostoyevsky, The Possessed, μέρος 2, κεφ. 1, τμῆμα 5 παραφρασμένο).

Ἡ Alison ὑπῆρξε μάρτυρας σέ περιστατικά πού ἔδειχναν πώς ὁ Εὐγένιος “τρελλαινόταν” καί προσπαθοῦσε νά “σπάση τά δεσμά” χωρίς νά ξέρη πραγματικά πῶς νά τό καταφέρη. Θυμᾶται ἐκεῖνο τό βράδυ, ὅταν ἔφθασε στό ἀποκορύφωμά της ἡ διαμάχη τοῦ Εὐγένιου καί τοῦ John γιά τό Θεό. Ὁ John, ὁ Εὐγένιος, ἡ Alison καί μερικοί ἄλλοι εἶχαν πάει βόλτα στή βουνοκορφή Mount Boldy (ἦταν ἄλλο ἕνα μέρος συναντήσεως τῆς παρέας). Τότε, λοιπόν, ὅλοι μέθυσαν μέ κρασί, ἐκτός ἀπ᾽ τήν Alison. Θυμᾶται: “Ὁ John φώναζε καί κομπορρημονοῦσε, λέγοντας ὅτι ἔπρεπε νά ἐγκαταλείψη τίς γυναῖκες γιά τό Θεό κι ὁ Εὐγένιος εἶχε ἀηδιάσει μέ ὅλη αὐτή τή σκηνή”.

Τότε συνέβη κάτι ἀναπάντεχο. Ὁ Εὐγένιος σηκώθηκε πάνω κι ἄρχισε νά οὐρλιάζη στό John.

—Δέν ὑπάρχει Θεός! Ὁ Θεός σου εἶναι μύθος! Ἄν ὑπῆρχε Θεός, δέν θά τυραννοῦσε τούς πιστούς του. Ἐσύ πιστεύεις ὅτι ὁ Θεός διασκεδάζει μπήγοντας καρφίτσες στούς ἀνθρώπους. Τέτοιος Θεός δέν ὑπάρχει!

Μέσ’ στή μεθυσμένη ὀργή του, ὁ Εὐγένιος ἔχυσε λίγο κρασί στό κεφάλι τοῦ John, λέγοντας: “Εἶμαι ὁ Ἰωάννης ὁ Βαπτιστής!”. Ἔπειτα σηκώνοντας τή γροθιά του στόν οὐρανό ἐκεῖ στήν κορυφή τοῦ βουνοῦ, καταράσθηκε τό Θεό καί Τόν Continue reading “Από τον αθεϊσμό στην Ορθόδοξη Πίστη: Η μεταστροφή του π.

Heilige Albanus (Albaan) van Engeland, 

eerste Britse christelijke martelaar (+250)

Heilige Albanus (Albaan) van Engeland, ook wel Albanus van Verulamium genoemd, was een 3e-eeuwse Engelse heilige. Hij was de eerste Britse christelijke martelaar. Zijn feestdag is 22 juni. De Engelse plaats St Albans is naar hem vernoemd.

De vroegst bekende bron over Albanus is de hagiografie over Germanus van Auxerre door Constantius van Lyon, geschreven rond 480. Gildas schreef over Albanus in zijn De Excidio Britanniae (6e eeuw).

Volgens de 8e-eeuwse Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum van Beda was Albanus een inwoner van de Brits-Romeinse stad Verulamium, nu St Albans, iets ten noorden van Londen. Albanus bekeerde zich tot het christendom en werd hiervoor onthoofd op een heuvel boven de stad. Volgens Beda vond deze executie ergens na het jaar 303 plaats. Nieuw onderzoek door de Britse historicus John Morris wees echter op het jaar 209, tijdens de vervolging van Continue reading “Heilige Albanus (Albaan) van Engeland, eerste Britse christelijke martelaar (+250) ╰⊰¸¸.•¨* Dutch”

How old is the Οrthodox Faith?

HAVE FAITH – ORTHODOXY

How old is the Οrthodox Faith?

If you are a Lutheran, your religion was founded by Martin Luther, an ex-monk of the Roman Catholic Church, in the year 1517.

If you belong to the Church of England, your religion was founded by King Henry VIII in the year 1534 because the Pope would not grant him a divorce with the right to re-marry.

If you are a Presbyterian, your religion was founded by John Knox in Scotland in the year 1560.

If you are a Congregationalist, your religion was originated by Robert Brown in Holland in 1582.

If you are Protestant Episcopalian, your religion was an offshoot of the Church of England, founded by Samuel Senbury in the American colonies in the 17th century.

If you are a Baptist, you owe the tenets of your religion to John Smyth, who launched it in Amsterdam in 1606.

If you are of the Dutch Reformed Church, you recognize Michelis Jones as founder because he originated your religion in New York in 1628.

If you are an Evangelical, your religion was founded in England in 1738.

If you are a Methodist, your religion was founded by John and Charles Wesley in England in 1774.

If you are a Mormon (Latter Day Saints), Joseph Smith started your religion in Palmyra, New York, in 1829.

If you worship with the Salvation Army, your sect began with William Booth in London in 1865.

If you are Christian Scientist, you look to 1879 as the year in which your religion was born and to Mary Baker Eddy as its founder.

If you belong to one of the religious organizations known as “Church of the Nazarene, Pentecostal Gospel,” “Holiness Church,” or “Jehovah’s Witnesses,” your religion is one of the hundreds of new sects founded by men within the past hundred years.

If your religion is the “Workers” who also called “Church Without Name”, “Two by Two Church”, “2×2’s”, “Friends & Workers”, “The Truth”, “Christians”, “The Non-Denominational Church”, “Christian Convention Church”, “The Christian Church”, “No-Name Church”, “The Faith Missioners”, “Nameless House Church”, “The Damnation Army”, “Dippers”, “Go Preachers”, “The Jesus-Way”, “The New Testament Church”, “Pilgrims”, “The Reidites”, “Tramp Preachers”, “The Testimony”, “The Way”, and with at least 20 still concrete names, they was founded in Ireland on 1897 by William Irvine, Edward Cooney and Jack Carroll, for this reason also the are known and as “Cooneyites”, “Irvinites” or “Carrollites”.

If you are Roman Catholic, your church shared the same rich apostolic and doctrinal heritage as the Orthodox Church for the first thousand years of its history, since during the first millennium they were one and the same Church. Lamentably, in 1054, the Pope of Rome broke away from the other four Apostolic Patriarchates (which include Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch and Jerusalem), by tampering with the Original Creed of the Church, and considering himself to be infallible. Thus your church is 1,000 years old.

If you are Eastern Orthodox Christian (Eastern Orthodox Church), your religion was founded in the year 33 by Jesus Christ, the Son of God. It has not changed since that time. Our church is now almost 2,000 years old. And it is for this reason, that Orthodoxy, the Church of the Apostles and the Fathers is considered the true “one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.” This is the greatest legacy that we can pass on to the young people of the new millennium.

Die Sondag van die Ortodoksie

https://afrikaansortodoks.wordpress.com

https://afrikaansortodoks.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/die-sondag-van-die-ortodoksie/

BEDEHUIS BETHANIË

Verlede Sondag het ons die Sondag van die Sege van die Ortodoksie gevier. Hier is ‘n uittreksel uit ons bisdomlike blad oor dié fees.

Vandag, op die eerste Sondag van die Groot Vastyd, gedenk ons die oorwinning van die Ortodoksie oor die kettery van die ikonoklasme. In die agste eeu is die Kerk uitmekaar geskeur deur hulle wat beswaar gemaak het teen die verering van die ikone, en in 787 het die Tweede Konsilie van Nicea daarop gereageer deur die rol van ikone in die Kerk te bevestig en te verklaar dat “Wanneer hierdie voorstellings beskou word, dit hulle wat daarna kyk hulle prototipe sal laat gedenk en liefhê .” Die Konsilie het onderskei tussen aanbidding, wat God alleen toekom, en die verering wat ons aan ikone gee, en verklaar dat wanneer ons ‘n ikoon vereer, ons eintlik die werklikheid vereer wat dit verteenwoordig.

Selfs na die Konsilie het die ikonoklasme voortgeduur totdat die keisering Theodora in 844 die Ortodoksie opnuut gevestig het met ‘n plegtige prosessie en verering van die ikone op die eerste Sondag van die Vastyd. Dit was die begin van vandag se fees en vier die sege van die ware leer oor kettery.

Die sege van die Ortodoksie wat ons vandag vier, staan in volledige samehang met die vroeëre stryd vir die Ortodokse geloof, want wat op die spel was, was nie bloot die geldigheid van die verering van die ikone nie, maar juis die werklikheid van die Vleeswording van Christus, wat die Kerk in vroeëre eeue geworstel het om te bely. Omdat God in Christus volledig mens geword het, is die stoflike self geheillig en het dit ‘n geskikte medium geword om Sy beeltenis weer te gee. Soos Sint Johannes van Damaskus geskryf het: “As ‘n mens eers verstaan dat die Onliggaamlike vir jou mens geword het, is dit vanselfsprekend dat jy Sy menslike beeld kan weergee.”

Onomskryfbare Meester, in u goddelike natuur, en in die laaste tye vlees geword, het dit U behaag om omskryfbaar te word; want deur vlees aan te neem, het U ook al die eienskappe daarvan aangeneem. Wanneer ons daarom die vorm van u gelykenis weergee, gee ons dit ‘n relatiewe verering en word ons verhef tot liefde vir U, en in die navolging van die tradisies van die apostels, verkry ons daaruit die genade van heling.

February 2017:

Archbishop Sergiy of Solnechnogorsk visits Vietnam

From February 11-13, 2017 Archbishop Sergiy of Solnechnogorsk, chancellor of the Moscow Patriarchate in East and South Asia, was on a visit to Vietnam.

On February 11, His Eminence and his party were met at the Hanoi airport by Russian Ambassador to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam K. Vnukov and Russian diplomats.

On the same day, His Eminence met with the deputy head of the Government’s Committee for Religious Affairs, Duong Ngoc Tan. They exchanged opinions on organizing the Russian Orthodox Church’s pastoral care for Russian-speaking compatriots in Vietnam, noting the positive experience of the work carried out by the Parish of Our Lady of Kazan in Vung Tau, which has been established by the ROC Holy Synod after the visit made by Metropolitan Kirill of Smolensk and Kaliningrad (now Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia) to Vietnam in November 2001. They also discussed prospects for cooperation and development of humanitarian interaction in the religious sphere between Russia and Vietnam.

In the evening, Archbishop Sergiy met with Ambassador K.Vnukov. They considered a wide range of issues concerning organization of pastoral care for compatriots in Hanoi and other cities in Vietnam. The archbishop presented the ambassador with the ROC jubilee medal ‘In Memory of the Millennium of the Demise of Prince Vladimir Equal-to-the-Apostles’ awarded him by His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia.

On February 12, the Sunday of the Prodigal Son, Archbishop Sergiy celebrated the Divine Liturgy at the Russian Center of Science and Culture in Hanoi. It was attended by numerous faithful from Russia, Greece, various cities in Vietnam and other countries; over 50 people communicated. Among the worshippers were Russian diplomats and members of the delegation of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Addressing the worshippers, Archbishop Sergiy conveyed them greetings from His Holiness Patriarch Kirill, who was the first hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church to visit the capital city of Vietnam, in 2001. His Eminence spoke at length about the spiritual meaning of the Sunday divine services preceding Lent.

Mr. A. Gankin greeted His Eminence on behalf of the Russian Orthodox community in Hanoi. He thanked Patriarch Kirill for his care for the faithful in Asia including Vietnam. He also thanked Archbishop Sergiy for the celebration, his homily and his work to organize the life of Orthodox communities in South-East Asia.

In response to an earlier request of the compatriots to establish a ROC parish in Hanoi, Archbishop Sergiy, after a discussion with the faithful, gave his blessing upon the forming of a community dedicated to Blessed Xenia of St. Petersburg and called everyone to lift up ardent prayers to this woman of God, now the patron saint of the parish in Vietnam.

On February 13, Archbishop Sergiy left Vietnam for Cambodia.
