2nd Part: Rodney Stark: ‘cities Of God’. Another Excellent Book.

2nd Part: Rodney Stark: ‘cities Of God’. Another Excellent Book. Emotional liturgies generally do appeal to people who desire something ‘spiritual’. Along with these emotive ideals, Christianity also was easy to access, and understand. It developed a coherent and vibrant moral code centered around the Book of Matthew and the Golden Rule. It demanded that the individual help his or her fellow human, attend to the poor, aid the suffering, and develop in essence a welfare state: The truly revolutionary aspect of Christianity lay in moral imperatives such as ‘Love one’s neighbor as oneself’, ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’….these were not just slogans. Members did nurse the sick, even during epidemics; they did support orphans, … Read entire article »

How To Be Part Of The Holy Moment

How To Be Part Of The Holy Moment If I could impart the knowledge of how you could be part of the holy moment, and you in turn, experienced the holy moment, it would be glorious in that through your experience it would release me and thereby bless us both. It is in that spirit that I explain the concept of the Holy Moment so that you may go there in your time of need.

The Holy Moment holds simultaneously peace and joy and a sense of well-being. A connectivity to Christ, and to your Father, and the brotherhood of man who came here to create together … Read entire article »

History of Orthodox Christianity – Part Ι (Beginnings) Ορθοδοξία

If you never took in school or study History of Christianity or the Christian Church, this (3 Part Documentary) will help you a lot. Our journey begins with the founding of the Church, the spread of Christianity to “nations” by the Apostles, the Gospel and the institution of Sacraments. After the stabilization of the Church, the journey continues through the period of the Nicene Creed, Patristic Scriptures, Divine Liturgy and Icons. During this same period, however, the official division of East and West is witnessed and concludes with a gradual rift in matters of faith, dogma, church customs, politics and culture. The Church becomes the only institution perceived by Greeks as the preserver of their national identity during 400 years of Turkish rule. By the end of the 19th century, … Read entire article »
