of Schism
[From the resolution of the council:

93. Orthodox Reflections: An Orthodox doctor finally gets exposed for not being concerned that the COVID-19 vaccines are linked to aborted fetal cells
[Irene Polidoulis MD CCFP FCFP writes her thoughts after listening to an Ancient Faith Radio (AFR) Podcast on the Covid-19 vaccines (Part 1), an interview between Fr. John Parker and Dr. Ryan Sampson Nash, who despite identifying as “Orthodox,” did not bring an Orthodox perspective to the podcast. According to Dr. Nash, the use of fetal cell lines in the development and/or testing of the Covid-19 vaccines as a moral dilemma of “small” proportion because “we already live in a world tainted with fetal cell lines.” In other words, because these cells have already been used for several decades in the development and/or testing of other drugs and products, there is no point in resisting taking a Covid-19 vaccine on these grounds. Dr. Polidoulis should be commended for being one of the first doctors to finally expose this “Orthodox” doctor who is more like a spokesman for the vaccine companies. But what do you expect when someone loves the praise of men more than the praise of God (John 12:43).]

By Father Kosmas: For the Orthodox Faithful who are Confused About Covidism


Christian shepherds, that is, bishops and priests, are going to be filled with vainglory (with some exceptions),
utterly failing to distinguish the right way from the left……The Churches of God are going to be deprived of godly
and pious shepherds.” Saint Nilus (†1651)

Now the devil is on vacation, because his work has been taken over by the bishops.” Fr. John Romanides (†2001)
