WARNING

NOT EVERYTHING THAT

CALLS ITSELF ORTHODOX IS

TRULY ORTHODOX


The above warning was given to me when I first met Orthodoxy in 1986. Today [2009] it is even more perilous, even more difficult to find the Royal Path. For one thing there is a far greater abundance of misinformation. And many materials are missing, and other materials are being rapidly rewritten. For another thing there are fewer than ever guides remaining on the Royal Path, especially who speak English. Hopefully this website will be a place where Newcomers to the Faith can keep at least one foot on solid ground, while they are "exploring."

Website Review
update  October 2015

It is difficult, but not impossible to dig up the jurisdiction of this website.  It is OCA.  The contact person is an OCA priest named Geoffrey Korz.

 The one thing valuable I found on this website are pdfs of the Death to the World zines.  These zines were published by a satellite of Platina in the early 90s.  I always assumed they were the work of monk John Marler (author of the original Door to Paradise).

I downloaded the pdfs and found there are pages missing in the pdfs, also some articles are different versions from what I have.  This is not alarming, I do not see any deceit intended. 

Having checked the pdf versions against my paper editions, I note the differences for your interest.  

The only editing I have done myself was to block out somebody's identity information (birthdate, SSN, etc., page 14 of issue No. 8).
