Thought for the day

If everyone believed absolutely 100% of what their church/denomination taught - there would be about 6 billion world religions.


"In prayer, come empty. Do nothing."
-St.John of the Cross

Good point. So then, which religion(i.e. 'person') is the true one? Ericism or Joshism? Kidding!

Ericism, of course....Die, heretic!

At the Fourth Ecumenical Council, though rarely cited by historians (but we Orthodox have passed this down orally), the Byzantine Emperor stood before the raging factions and in a loud voice declared: "Now now, boys! No schism games! Let's just all shake hands and play nice. Make up, and share a nice large, warm chalice of shut the fanatic up!" Okay, it loses something in the translation.
