A website of the Moscow Patriarch
MP ⬅ That should be enough of a warning to avoid this website. But why avoid it entirely, aren't there some good things in there? Probably there are, but to extract the good parts you need to be a skilled surgeon.
Here is one example; it should be enough:
St. Philaret's Sermon at St. Herman's glorification: MP version
St. Philaret's Sermon at St. Herman's glorification: true version
World-orthodoxy shows a pattern. Whenever the true Orthodox Church produces a fruit (a saint), world-orthodoxy tries to hide that saint somehow. If it can not do this, then it rewrites the saint, censors him, making him appear like world-orthodoxy. This was done to St. Herman, St. John Kronstadt, St. John S&SF, Fr. Seraphim Rose, and now it is being done to St. Philaret.
The old ROCOR of Fr. Seraphim's day taught their flock how to recognize Antichrist and the antichrist spirit. Archbishop Averky would interrupt his own sermons if something popped into his mind that would strengthen our understanding of end times. World-orthodoxy does not want their flock taught about Antichrist, because world-orthodoxy is a product of the antichrist spirit. End times teachings are a testimony against world-orthodoxy.
