On the "correctness disease": “In a way this is a natural temptation to anyone who has just awakened to Christian faith and to spiritual life—the more one finds out about Christian doctrine and practice, the more one discovers how many ‘mistakes’ one has been making up to now, and one’s natural desire is to be ‘correct.’ This is praiseworthy, although in the beginning one is probably going to be too artificially ‘strict’ and make many new mistakes out of pride (to which we are constantly blind). If you are critical of others, self-confident about your own correctness, eager to quote canons to prove someone else is wrong, constantly ‘knowing better’ than others—you have the germs of the ‘correctness disease.’ These are signs of immaturity in spiritual life, and often one outgrows them if one is living a normal spiritual life.

But especially in our days, the spirit of worldliness is so strong, and there is obviously so much wrong in our church life—that there is a strong temptation to make ‘correctness’ a way of life, to get stuck in it.... Sometimes one’s zeal for 'Orthodoxy' (in quotes) can be so excessive that it produces a situation similar to that which caused an old Russian woman to remark of an enthusiastic American convert ‘Well, he’s certainly Orthodox all right—but is he a Christian?’ To be ‘Orthodox but not Christian’ is a state that has a particular name in Christian language: it means to be a pharisee, to be so bogged down in the letter of the Church’s laws that one loses the spirit that gives them life, the spirit of true Christianity.” — Hieromonk Seraphim (Rose), from a talk given in 1979

After 31 years of being bought up as a Christian I was unaware of the TRUE church and practice known as Orthodoxy , I want all my followers to do one thing .. never settle and just accept what is in front of you, RESEARCH and the TRUTH will always be bought to light ☦️ Was such a blessing to have all my closest family and friends surrounding me
Thank you all of you xxx
