After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


Counterfeit Remnant ROCOR blog

     This counterfeit blog, owned by Joseph Suaiden of NFTU, is "very anti-ROCOR."  It was founded on a premise recognized to be a form of ecumenism -- the erroneous idea that all the Russian schisms are valid parts of the real Russian Church, and, hence, should be in communion with each other.

     It was noted by Reader Daniel in 2014 that Suaiden's "look-alike blog" is also "very anti-GOC/SIR."  The GOC recognizes one Russian Church.  Same for the Old Calendar Bulgarians and the Old Calendar Romanians.   None of the Sister Churches recognize any of the Russian schisms, including the latest intra-ROCOR Mountain View schism.  

Counterfeit: Essentially a product that is identical to another
product, and thereby infringes upon the trademark of that product mark
(trademark). These are typically sold online, and via street corner
and back-alley vendors.

Suaiden says:
With the union of 2007 between a part of the ROCOR and the Moscow Patriarchate, it appeared ROCOR as a whole had fallen.  But the truth is that Bishops of the ROCOR in Russia (the FROC) and Abroad had been fleeing the communion of the ROCOR to protect the raith since 1994...  This is their story....

Suaiden says:
Truer Words Never Spoken
There are other Synods having as equal, or greater claim to be the "continuer of ROCOR" –– that is, ROAC, ROCiE and RTOC.  Without going into a detailed analysis of the canonicity of these Synods, we know that they all reject the MP as graceless, which Agathangelus does not.  Therefore they, and not Agathangelus, are in accord with the confession of faith of the last two first-hierarchs of ROCOR, Metropolitan Philaret and Vitaly. ––
Vladimir Moss, in his excellent essay here

Suaiden was not able to use my exact template because it had been discontinued. So he copied a template from one of my more recent blogs.
