"...Think of the ROCOR before this wonderful union ... as the ship guided by the Holy Canons, and all of a sudden she veers off path to an unscheduled port. A pirate hangout, if you will, or a well-known den of well-armed thieves. People are jumping off and hitting the lifeboats, smaller, but safer. Whether ROAC, ROCiE, ROCiE-A, ROCOR-A, the RTOC, and RusOC, the Greek or othe OldCalendarists, everyone's on a lifeboat and telling the poor blighted fools to jump off the ship as it is now getting hujacked. (It has since been pillages and put on an auction block for sale..)
NFTU's policy in dealing with all the True Orthodoc Churches is to support 'everyone on the lifeboats'. and not a particular one..."
So, then, how to learn to recognize the Church in spirit. Seek first the Kingdom. Only God can show you the truth hiding in this sea of lies we live in.
Satan has hidden Christianity among false religions.
Satan has hidden Orthodoxy among false Christianities.
Satan has hidden "true" Orthodoxy among false Orthodoxies.
Satan is hiding God's One Holy Church Militant among divided "true" Orthodoxies.
This latter is being called: jurisdictional ecumenism.
