> mercy .... or....or. With Orthodox Hierarchs like these who needs the

> because that is exactly what Uniates do: They pretend to be Orthodox by
> projecting such a facade but in substance they follow the heretical pope
> which means they are outside the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.
> As a consequence, the sacraments they receive are devoid of salvific

> Bishop is above any other. In the Orthodox Church it is synods that

>
> 1) The deviations, innovations and alteration to the True Fath by the
> Catholics and all the myriad of other heretics has accelerated and
> multiplied since then.
> 2) The tenacity, steadfastness and adherence to unadulterated Orthodoxy of
> the bishops of World Orthodoxy has vanished and they now stand as empty
> shells, devoid of substance and the Grace of the Holy Spirit, parroting
> sermons of love and care for the fellow human being to justify their
> apostasy from the fundamentals of the Orthodox Church. As modern day
> Pharisees, they love to polish their images but have no interest for what
> they claim they stand for and as Christ himself said, they are like graves
> beautiful outside but stinking inside.
> As a result, we have the disaster that is shaping in front of us these
> days.
>
> May the Lord strengthen all those who are lukewarm in their hearts but
> conscientious of the apostasy that is taking place, to find the strength
> to abandon their heretical bishops and priests and join the True Orthodox
> Church which never deviated from the Truth despite the relentless
> persecutions and the plethora of tribulations due to the human failures of
> its Hierarchs.
>
> May the Lord strengthen all the pious Orthodox Christians during these
> times of persecution of the True Faith and to grant courage to defend our
> Faith till the end of our lives and not to succumb to the papists and
> their heretical deceptions.
>
> May the Lord enlighten the Bishops who are now embracing the World Council
> of Churches to recognize their faults, turn them away from ecumenism and
> cast them out of the synagogue of heretics.
>
> May an army of Saints and Angels come to the aid of the Hierarchs and
> priests of the True Orthodox Church who fight the good fight, who refuse
> to obey the masters of the new world order and who refuse to sell Christ
> for self accommodation.

>How and when the Antichrist will come, no one can say. And it is unknown
