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."

  2. This is a rare exception of a prophet arising [seemingly] outside the Church. The synod determined that John Smirennikov had been instructed by the heavenly Church [the Church Triumphant] in order to prepare the people for the arrival of an earthly priest.

    In fact, soon after the earthly priest arrived, John Smirennikov's labors for God were completed – he stepped aside giving over completely to the priest God sent to his village. And then John Smirennikov was soon taken by God from this earthly life, his mission having been completed.
