The ethics of saving one’s soul
I’m neither Protestant nor Catholic,
so you may have to bear with me here. I’m eastern Orthodox and my Church has
always been steadfastly against adopting laic normatives.
Back home, the Pride Parades are being countered every single time by Christian marches. Clerics and believers singing Christian hymns and marching with Romanian flags and icons. Entire families participate.
It’s called the March for Normality.
The purpose of the Church is to look after our souls and help us follow in the path of Christ and be redeemed. The Priests are the custodians of their parishioners’ souls. A Priest’s job is to guide, to teach and to help us escape temptation and return on the narrow path of Salvation.
But what about the priests who celebrate sin? What about the ones who either openly sin, like the various Sodomite priests and even bishops so shamelessly flaunting their sin amongst the ranks of various Protestant rites?
What about the churches who fly the flag of sin?
Those are no longer churches. The politics of the laic world have nothing to do with faith, and Jesus said that himself. Render onto Caesar is exactly that.
The separation of church and state so many westerners preach also means the separation of laic issues from Church issues. Even the USA recognizes people have the right to follow their moral principles first, and should not be forced to break the tenets of their faith to accommodate those who are blatantly against it.
So, what am I to make of a church carrying a rainbow flag?
The answer is straight forward. A church is supposed to follow the laws of God and the example of Christ. Any church that puts any laic matter ahead of these is no longer a church. It has been corrupted, it has been occupied by the Enemy.
After all, isn’t putting your flag on a conquered building the sign of conquest?
We live in a world in which the Church is permanently under attack by degeneracy and sin. Christianity is at a graver danger than it has ever been in the past 1500 years.
The danger however now comes both from within and from without, and it is up to every one of us to stop it.
We have had enemies from the outside before, and as long as we stood faithful to Christ we have won. The walls stood strong. The citadel of the souls protected us from evil and Christ prevailed.
But what about the enemy from within? How to we fight the corruption in our own ranks?
This seem to be a very serious question amongst many of the faithful. Especially in the West, Christians have been on the retreat for decades. Church after church fell to sin and degeneracy, and priests themselves became tools of the Enemy.
There are priests who might think they are doing a good thing. That people should be welcome so they can be redeemed. But those who decry their sins don’t normally tend to fly said sins’ flags.
These sinners aren’t in your churches to repent, they are there to conquer your church and bring it down.
“But my priest is a good and kind man” you’ll say.
NO, he isn’t. His job is not to be kind to sinners. His job is not to follow the laic world into sin, his job is to stand fast against it. The Church has millennia of history doing just that and protecting the faithful from the hubris of men and the temptation of evil.
The job of your priest is to excommunicate the sinning Emperor and force him to atone and make penance at Canosa, not to follow him on the road to sin.
A priest who imposes the symbol of sin upon Christ’s Church is not a good priest. His kind words are just lies. He has lost his way and his very existence in the Church of God is an abomination.
And it’s YOUR JOB to call it out.
Because a priest who praises and revels in Sin is no longer a servant of the Church and a follower of Christ. He is corrupted, and instead of being the custodian of the souls of his parishioners he becomes a deceiver.
This priest becomes the unfaithful servant Jesus spoke of.
The Faithful or the Unfaithful Servant.*
The Priest is a servant of Christ and the priest who leads his parishioners into sin for whatever reason is the unfaithful servant.
So what should we do about the unfaithful servants?
The answer is easy now isn’t it?
The unfaithful servant must be cast out lest the whole household be punished for his sins.
If your church was occupied by sinners, you have three choices:
1. Cast out the sinners and unfaithful servants
2. Leave the Church
3. Stay and be a part of their sin.
“But how can we cast out a priest from our church?” you ask.
The same way Jesus cast out the moneychangers from the Temple. A corrupted priest is less welcome in the house of the Lord than a moneychanger in the temple.
Because the corrupted priest is a worm that will eat everyone else’s souls.
You can of course write to his superiors. But many churches have been deeply corrupted and you may not find a good answer there either.
If you can’t cast out the corrupted servant, leave. A church is only as strong as its faithful and a church without will crumble and die.
But how could I leave my church? We have been members for generations, it is where my family and neighbours congregate.
What is more important to you? Your family and neighbours or your soul and salvation?
Would you join your neighbours in Hell? Are they that important to you?
Or will you take the narrow path to Heaven and hope they follow?
We live in a bad world and many have lost their way. You might feel bad from leaving the comfort of a church you know into the wilderness.
Yet didn’t Jesus himself warn us that the time will come?
Your priest has chosen his path. He chose sin over Jesus.
That is his path.
It doesn’t have to be yours.
