“It is coming”, “it is happening”, “it is here”

“It is coming”, “It is happening”, “It is here” … The digitization of everything, including YOUR identity “is here”. You will be nothing but a code somewhere on a blockchain, linked to everything else related to you, your “money”, your “assets”, your health information etc. The “perfect” system of Antichrist “is here”. You can hear

Religious and Political Leaders Sign New Document For Inter-Confessional Cooperation To “Make The World a Better Place”

The “New Mission of the Church” is being implemented full force ahead. This is indeed a new and strange gospel – it may be argued that such nonsense sets the stage for the manifestation of, and acceptance of the Antichrist, more than any and all of the heresies of the past 2000 years. This is

The Evolution of Social Doctrines and the Antichrist

The “evolution” of social doctrines in Russia starting with the 17th century, and really getting the big boost after the communist takeover of Russia. This (the first link) is a good article documenting the progress of this cancer of Orthodoxy that in recent years has got to take center stage in the Church itself, culmination

Fr Seraphim Rose on achieving “happiness” on Earth

Some 40 years ago Fr Seraphim Rose was writing: “There was a particular philosopher in China in the late nineteenth century who brought this philosophy to its logical conclusion, as far as it could go. His name is K’ang Yu-Wei (1858-1927). He’s not particularly interesting except as he incarnates this philosophy of the age, this

A New World “Christian” Order is Rising

(I wonder what is more dangerous: a NWO that is openly hostile to Christianity? or a NWO which presents a ‘pious and deceptive’ substitute for genuine Christianity? On which soil will the Antichrist be manifested?) “…we desperately need to address the world with a united voice. Without being one Church, could we not act as

Concerning the Bolshevik and Nihilist revolutions and the emergence of a “New Christianity”

Concerning how the Bolshevik and Nihilist revolutions purposefully evolved from “open warfare against God” to the presentation of a “new Christianity”: “The entire world is progressing toward unity of doctrine and action. This is our most general profession of faith … While proclaiming that religion is destined to assert its rule over society, we certainly

True Christianity vs Social Gospel

“What we have here is a change of Christian theology into sociology, sociology baptized into a new theology. This new theology as expressed in this heretical article (which was written by a bishop of the Orthodox Church – G.B.) places the realization of the Kingdom of God within our history here on earth, advocating the

A Contemporary Orthodox World View

source (this is work in progress – i may update this post over the next period)   My dear friends, i am going to try to present what i would call “the big picture” (at least the way i see it), my Orthodox Worldview, trying to put some context around the events that have been

Fr Seraphim Rose: Seeking the realization of Christian “ideals” in this world is idolatry; it is of the Antichrist

A Letter to Thomas Merton, 1962 By Eugene [Fr. Seraphim] Rose (excerpts in video format and some very important additional information at the end of the article – please watch) I am a young American convert to Russian Orthodoxy—not the vague “liberal” spirituality of too many modern Russian “religious thinkers,” but the full ascetic and

Pope Paul VI in New York 1965

by Eugene Rose [Fr. Seraphim] from The Orthodox Word issue #5, September 1965 (in video format at the end of article) Perhaps no other event in recent history has been so clear a “sign of the times” as the visit to New York of Pope Paul VI, on Oct. 4 of this year, and his

Christianity and Socialism

By the New Hieromartyr Hilarion (Troitsky) [+1928] Men verily swear by the greater (Heb. 6:16). This truth remains ever and everywhere immutable. Any single truth or any series of truths always comprise what is “greater” for man, and this “greater” is man’s authority; he refers to it, he “swears” by it. Yet the same truths

Archimandrite Constantine Zaitsev: On the “social gospel” of ecumenism

Concerning the author of the text below, Fr. Seraphim Rose stated: “Archimandrite Constantine Zaitsev of Jordanville was a brilliant thinker who, being fully within the tradition of the Church, was able to see beyond the externals and into the heart of the Orthodox faith, wherein lies its mystical, unseen essence and its living apostolic power.”

The “New Social Contract”

With the “unexpected” ascension of Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States of America, it may be time to continue our line of thought on the Heresy of Social Gospel. The mainstream media and the press would like us to believe that Mr Trump phenomena was the result of a random act of

The Heresy of Social Gospel

This heresy was well captured and presented in the writings of Blessed Seraphim Rose and Herman Podmoshenski of Platina Monastery, the spiritual offspring of the Elders from Optina monastery. As some may know, but perhaps most have not learned yet, parts of the written work of these two saintly fathers were censored, books published were

The chiliastic end of the upcoming Pan-Orthodox Synod

While everyone is focusing on point 8 of the upcoming Pan-Orthodox synod (the inter-confessional relations), an equally important issue is being completely overlooked, but it is just as important, if not even more important – point 10. In essence, the adoption of this point would mean re-defining the mission of the Church towards an earthly

The Heretical Pan-Orthodox Synod of 2016

“Brothers at last”, it was proclaimed by Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill, after recently signing the Havana declaration. This marks the moment when it has become all clear. Patriarch Kirill has shown us what will be widely adopted at the coming “Holy” Pan-Orthodox Synod taking place between 19th and 27th of June 2016 – a

The Pope Heralds “The New World Order”

For two and a half years our mission has been warning about what was becoming the obvious, and has now been finally confirmed by the Pope in his address before the UN. The message is clear, the world needs a more just world order, economically, socially, environmentally, and in any other way possible. An encyclical has been issued making

Mr. Putin and Islam

It is becoming quite clear, Mr Putin does many good things, like opposing gay marriage, opposing GM foods etc, but it might be so only to try to “convince” those who still can’t make up their minds on whether Mr Putin is a true Orthodox leader or something else. Elder Hristofor foretold, as presented in

The Pope, New York, and the U.N.

With The Pope heading to America to speak in front of the US Congress, the UN assembly, and the whole World for the first time in history, trying to promote his new “social gospel” (the new doctrine of universal justice of which our website presented much information about), it is appropriate to recall one of

The Migrants Crisis

There is a war going on in the Middle East, but nobody knows for sure who the enemy is, yet it has produced the biggest humanitarian crisis since WWII already. There are many indications, as we pointed out before, that ISIS is in fact a covert Western operation, meant to serve the purpose of advancing

The Game Theory

Before we start, let us quickly look at the Game Theory definition: “Game theory is a branch of mathematics that represents interdependent decision making. By “interdependent decision” making I mean situations (arguably most, if not all, of those we face in life) where the outcomes of one’s decision depends on decisions made by others. One

“The Deal”

Greece has apparently reached a “deal”. A far worse deal than anyone could have imagined, much worse than troika’s initial “offer”. How did we get here? It is a complete plundering of a nation. Not only has Mr Tsipras failed to secure “a better negotiating position” by encouraging a “NO” vote at the referendum, but

Is The Pope the Antichrist?

Short answer: No! Some ideas stemming from the perverted understanding of the End Times of the Apostate West are trying to suggest the Pope may be the antichrist. http://www.barnhardt.biz/2015/07/09/it-is-now-appropriate-to-begin-serious-discussions-as-to-whether-pope-francis-is-in-fact-the-antichrist/ Instead, the Pope better resembles the False Prophet, who has come to preach a new doctrine, a new teaching: Liberation Theology, to herald the dawn of

The Pope calls for a new economic and ecological order

The Pope is relentless in pushing his Liberation Theology agenda, otherwise known as Christian Communism or Spiritual Marxism. On this subject we wrote numerous articles, please take a little time to read them if haven’t already. The greatest iniquity the world has seen, the financial collapse due to bankers greed, is about to hit, and
