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."

Alexander Mileant

ROCOR Bp. Alexander served as bishop of South America and Buenos until his repose in  2005.  Had he lived, he would certainly have gone with the RocorMP union in 2007, as he was very pro-MP.   He was also an evolutionist.

"Bp. Alexander, though he did much valuable missionary work, was a noted ecumenist, very much on the fringes of our episcopate." 
ROCA archpriest, 2013

Still, there are some great things on the website, and many good things: especially: 
• info about the occult
• info on defending the faith
• Michael Pomanzansky articles
• Fr. Lev Lebedev writings
• St. Ignatius Brianchaninov writings
• St. Innocent of Alaska writings
• Unbelievable for Many but a true occurrence
• Fr. Nikolai Deputatov writings
• Lives of Saints

Avoid:
> Georges Florovsky articles
> neo-Athos elder articles [pseudo-elder Paisius]
> info on Theotokos, especially Contemporary Visions
> info on Creation and Science 
> "Orthodox Psychotherapy" 
> Metr. Hierotheos Vlachos
> Alexei Khomiakov
> Theology [except for Michael Pomanzansky]

Missing from this site is necessary information on: calendar issue, sergianism, ecumenism.
