Beware of false prophets and false religions

We are in the days of The Final Tribulation. (KJV) 2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.  2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  Matthew 24:24 wonderfully, the elect will not be deceived.  Deuteronomy 32:37 And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,  Deuteronomy 32:38 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection. God says that natural, unregenerate man trusts in every other rock, other than Christ Jesus, Who is the true “Rock”. Notice, He tells them to call upon the rocks (false gods, in fact, anything other than the True God in whom men seek refuge) to “rise up and help you, and be your protection” (Deuteronomy 32:28). And so, this is the character of natural man. They trust in lying words, false christs, false gospels, false religions, the false ideas of men, and every other thing that opposes the truth to protect them in times of trouble. They put their trust in gods who cannot save (Isaiah 45:20). How sad it will be for many on that great day who shall shall seek refuge in their false christs which inevitably arise from the false gospels of lying men to protect them and hide them from the wrath to come. They shall say “Lord, Lord, have we not, did we not…” But the Lord Jesus shall say “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:22-24).

LEARN THE TRUTH-PAST AND PRESENT=IS ALWAYS THE SAME

WINSTON CHURCHILL SAID THIS ON FEB 8 1920 IN NEWSPAPER IN LONDON:  "In violent opposition to all this sphere of Jewish effort rise the schemes of the International Jews. Most, if not all, of them have forsaken the faith of their forefathers and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world. This movement among the Jews is not new.  From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing…and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.
There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews."
"..the Jew prefers to avoid the battlefield and the hazards of face to face combat, and to stealthily set up the massacres of helpless women and children..." Eustace Mullins, The Secret Holocaust
“Atrocity Propaganda is how we (Brits) won the war!”  “We won this war with atrocity propaganda…and now we will start more than ever! We will continue this atrocity propaganda, we will increase it until nobody will accept one good word from the Germans anymore, until everything is destroyed which might have upheld them sympathies in other countries, and until they will be so confused that they don’t know what to do anymore. When this is reached, when they begin to pollute their own nest, and this not reluctantly but with hasty willingness to obey the winners, only then the victory is complete. It will never be definite. The reeducation demands thorough, steadfast nurture like English lawn. Only one moment of inattention and the weed will break through, this ineradicable weed of historic truth.” – Sefton Delmer (JEWISH), former British chief propagandist, commenting after the capitulation in 1945 to the German expert on international law Prof. Grimm.

The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property, and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state.

TV PREACHERS EXPOSED Satanism Pentecostalism New Age

These people ARE DOING THE WORK OF DEVIL.All these pentecostal sects,THE DEVIL WORKS GOOD WITH THEM-They use the name of Jesus and they deceive the naive people.They cannot understand that the devil can and is working with them,The devils can do or predict something.THE DEVIL'S CAN DO FALSE HEALINGS, FOR DECEPTION-LIKE WHEN THE ANTICHRIST COMES.The devil gives and the devil takes it away.if you mess up with this shit,it's difficult to come out.The devils owns you for ever,unless you humble your self and confess your sins to a priest.And you will be free from them.Modern Pentecostals, to justify their use of tongues, refer most of all to St. Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians (chs. 12-14). But St. Paul wrote this passage precisely because 'tongues' had become a source of disorder in the Church of Corinth; and even while he does not forbid them, he decidedly minimizes their significance. This passage, therefore, far from encouraging any modern revival of "tongues," should on the contrary discourage it‹especially when one discovers (as Pentecostals themselves admit) that there are other sources of speaking in tongues besides the Holy Spirit! As Orthodox Christians we already know that speaking in tongues as a true gift of the Holy Spirit cannot appear among those outside the Church of Christ.

Exorcism in the Orthodox Church



         




THE DOCTRINE OF EVIL

To understand the Orthodox view and practice of exorcism, one must know the Orthodox presuppositions of evil and its doctrine of Satan. The patristic evidence points to the fact that the cause of evil in the world is the devil. The devil was created by God as an angel, who was free, and as a free agent chose to oppose the plan of God. That is, the devil is a fallen angel. Satan is not evil by nature, but by will and action. In Satan there is no truth whatsoever; he is absolute falsehood and deception. Satan is not just a negation or deprivation of good, but a positive force with free will that always chooses evil. The devil has the ability to recognize divine power, as in the incident of recognizing Christ as the Son of God (Matt. 4:1-11; Luke 4:1-3). Satan has under his leadership legions and invisible powers, with their own "satanic teachings." The devil and evil spirits know that God exists and recognize true and devoted Christians, but pious Christians discern the plans of the devil. The devil, however, constantly employs every method of deception to enslave man to satanic forces and causes rebellion against God. He is the cause of corruption and disorder, a parasitic power in the world that will ultimately be destroyed by the power of God in the "last days." Because there is no compromise between God and the devil, the struggle will continue until the end.

The Orthodox doctrine of God is that He is eternal, uncreated and incorporeal. All other creatures, both visible and invisible, were created by God as free. The power of the devil will ultimately be destroyed by the resurrection of the dead and the renewal of creation. Salvation from all evil will be attained by obedience to God and His plan. This world is a battleground between the acceptance of good and evil. It must be pointed out that the world as the creation of God is not evil. What is evil is the satanic power, destroyed by the power of the cross and the resurrection of Christ.

THE ORTHODOX TRADITION OF EXORCISING

After examining the doctrine of Satan in the Orthodox Church, it is imperative to proceed to the method of repelling and exorcising the evil powers. In the New Testament, Christ sent out His apostles to heal and to "cast out devils" (Matt. 10:8, Luke 10:17-20). Christ Himself often expels demons from the possessed (Mark 1:23-27; Luke 4:33-35, 9:43; Matt. 10:1; Mark 16:17; Matt. 7:22). The New Testament, however, rejected popular uses of magic incantations and rites to expel the satanic powers from people, because they took advantage of superstitious religiosity (Acts 19:13).

In the name of Christ, one is able to cast out demons and to destroy the evil powers (Matt. 10:8). The Fathers of the Church accepted this doctrine and expanded on it. Justin Martyr (Apology 85, 2) says that in the name of Christ, the Son of God who was crucified and rose again, every demon that is exorcised is defeated and submits (Library of the Greek Fathers and Church Writers, Athens: Apostolike Diakonia 1955, Vol. 3, pp. 288-89). The satanic powers are destroyed through the power of the cross and the name of Christ. Objects possessed by demons, when exorcised in the name of the living God, are freed from the possession of evil. The patristic evidence is abundant in the belief in possession and expulsion of the devil by the power of the word of God (Ignatios, Epistles to Philippians 3 and 12; Library of the Greek Fathers and Church Writers, Vol. 2, pp. 333 and 336; Clement of Alexandria, Stromata 4:14; Library, Vol 8, p. 82; Origen, Against Celsus, 6:44; Library, Vol. 10, p. 93).

The demonic possession of individuals and even of objects, has been accepted by the Orthodox Church today in the Sacrament of Baptism, in exorcising satanic powers in the case of the evil eye (vaskania), and in exorcising the devil in the case of a possessed person. In the early Church exorcisms were performed by a person especially trained and appointed to pray to drive out evil from those about to be baptized. Since the fourth century the place of the exorcist, as well as other functions and ministries, have been taken over by the priest. The exorcisms are prayers that invoke God to expel evil spirits. The priest prays to expel all evil, the spirit of error, of idolatry, of covetousness, of Iying and every impure act that arises from the teachings of the devil. The renunciation of the devil in baptism is used in every baptism that is performed in the Orthodox Church.

VASKANIA

The exorcism of satanic powers is also performed by the Orthodox Church in other rites, such as that of the evil eye (vaskania).

Vaskania is simply a phenomenon that was accepted by primitive people as fact. They believed that certain people have such powerful feelings of jealousy and envy, that when they looked on some beautiful object or individual it brought destruction. Vaskania is recognized by the Church as the jealousy and envy of some people for things they do not possess, such as beauty, youth, courage or any other blessing. The Church essentially rejected Vaskania as contradicting the concept of divine providence. The prayers of the Church to avert the evil eye are, however, a silent recognition of this phenomenon as a morbid feeling of envy. The Church forbids people to go to "readers" or other individuals for use of magical rituals to overcome the evil eye. These readers take advantage of the weakness of superstitious people and destroy them spiritually and financially by playing upon their imagination.

There is also a secret rite performed by superstitious people to avert the evil eye, which verges on magic. Though the Church encourages even the laity to pray and exorcise evil, it rejects magical practices and rites. This secret rite is described as follows: "The exorcist (not a priest but an old woman) prepares a vial of olive oil and a small glass of water. She dips a finger in the oil, rubs it in a sign of the Cross on the victim's forehead and lets one drop fall onto the water; she repeats the process, making a cross on the forehead, on the chin and both cheeks. If the devil is indeed present, the four drops of oil in the water join to form the ellipsoid shape of an eye. The ritual then calls for the reading of prayers and repeating the four signs of the Cross; the drops of oil will not join in the water, but will disperse."

The possession of individuals by the devil and demonic powers and the cure in the name of Christ is evidenced in the New Testament (Acts 3:2-8, 9:32-42; 20:7-12; Matt. 10:8; Mark 16:17-18). The Church continues in its liturgical rites what Christ enacted in His ministry. The Church recognizes the influence of evil and renounces it in the name of Christ in prayers and fasting. The prayers of exorcism in the early Church were offered by special ministry through the exorcist. This is evidenced from the early prayers that have survived. From the fourth century onwards, the ministry of the exorcist has been fulfilled by the priest.

ORTHODOX PRAYERS OF EXORCISM

All the Orthodox prayer books include prayers of exorcism used by priests to fight the power of evil. The Orthodox Book of Prayers (Euchologion To Mega) includes three prayers of exorcism by Saint Basil and four by Saint John Chrysostom. They are read "for those who suffer from demonic possessions and every other malady." Through these prayers, the devil is exorcised (renounced) "in the name of God Almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ, and commanded to come out of the victim, who is liberated and redeemed by the eternal God from the energies (powers) of the impure spirits. The great ills that humanity suffers are attributed to the devil and demonic power."

From the Orthodox theological point of view, the following can be considered exorcists:

Christ is the exorcist par excellence for it is He who won the victory over the power of the devil.
Priests in the performance of the holy sacraments and in preaching the word of God follow Christ's example.
All Orthodox Christians are exorcists as they struggle against personal sin and social evil. In fact, "the whole Church, past, present and future, has the task of an exorcist to banish sin, evil, injustice, spiritual death, the devil from the life of humanity." Archbishop Iakovos, in a sermon at the Sage Chapel, Cornell University, spoke on exorcism in the following manner: "Both healing and exorcising are ministered through prayers, which spring from faith in God and from love for man.... All the prayers of healing and exorcism, composed by the Fathers of the Church and in use since the third century, begin with the solemn declaration: In Thy Name, O Lord.' " (Exorcism and Exorcists in the Greek Orthodox Tradition, March 10, 1974.)
In summary, the four prayers of exorcism by Saint John Chrysostom and the three of Saint Basil ask in the name of God to deliver the possessed from the captivity of the devil. Some can be healed by faith accompanied by fasting and purification. The use of exorcism must be made with discretion and great care. (For details, see G. Papademetriou, "Exorcism and the Greek Orthodox Church," in Exorcism Through the Ages, New York: Philosophical Library, 1974.)

EASTERN CHRISTIANITY


      The Orthodox Church embodies and expresses the rich spiritual treasures of
      Eastern Christianity. It should not be forgotten that the Gospel of Christ
      was first preached and the First Christian communities were established in
      the lands surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. It was in these eastern
      regions of the old Roman Empire that the Christian faith matured in its
      struggle against paganism and heresy. There, the great Fathers lived and
      taught. It was in the cities of the East that the fundamentals of our
      faith were proclaimed at the Seven Ecumenical Councils.

      The spirit of Christianity which was nurtured in the East had a particular
      flavor. It was distinct, though not necessarily opposed, to that which
      developed in the Western portion of the Roman Empire and subsequent
      Medieval Kingdoms in the West. While Christianity in the West developed in
      lands which knew the legal and moral philosophy of Ancient Rome, Eastern
      Christianity developed in lands which knew the Semitic and Hellenistic
      cultures. While the West was concerned with the Passion of Christ and the
      sin of man, the East emphasized the Resurrection of Christ and the
      deification of man. While the West leaned toward a legalistic view of
      religion, the East espoused a more mystical theology. Since the Early
      Church was not monolithic, the two great traditions existed together for
      more than a thousand years until the Great Schism divided the Church.
      Today, Roman Catholics and Protestants are heirs to the Western tradition,
      and the Orthodox are heirs to the Eastern tradition.

      ORTHODOX
      Christians of the Eastern Churches call themselves Orthodox. This
      description comes to us from the fifth century and has two meanings which
      are closely related. The first definition means true teaching. The
      Orthodox Church believes that she has maintained and handed down the
      Christian faith, free from error and distortion from the days of the
      Apostles. The second definition, which is actually the more preferred,
      means true praise. To bless, praise, and glorify God Father, Son, and Holy
      Spirit--is the fundamental purpose of the Church. All her activities, even
      her doctrinal formulations, are directed toward this goal.

      Occasionally, the word Catholic is also used to describe the Orthodox
      Church. This description dating back to the second century, is embodied in
      the Nicene Creed which acknowledges One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic
      Church. From the Orthodox perspective, Catholic means that the Church is
      universal and also that she includes persons of all races and cultures. It
      also affirms that the Church has preserved the fullness of the Christian
      faith.

      It is not unusual for titles such as Greek, Russian and Antiochian to be
      used in describing Orthodox Churches. These appellations refer to the
      cultural or national roots of a particular parish, diocese, or archdiocese.

      DIVERSITY IN UNITY
      The Orthodox Church is an international federation of patriarchal,
      autocephalous and autonomous churches. Each church is independent in her
      internal organization and follows her own particular customs. However, all
      the churches are united in the same faith and order. The Orthodox Church
      acknowledges that unity does not mean uniformity. Some churches are rich
      in history, such as the Church of Constantinople, while others are
      relatively young, such as the Church of Finland. Some are large, such as
      the Church of Russia, while others are small, such as the Church of Sinai.
      Each Church is led by a synod of bishops. The president of the synod is
      known as the Patriarch, Archbishop, Metropolitan, or Catholicos. Among the
      various bishops, the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople is accorded a
      "place of honor" and is regarded as "first among equals." In America and
      Western Europe, where Orthodoxy is relatively young, there are a number of
      dioceses and archdioceses which are directly linked to one of these
      autocephalous Churches. For example, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese is
      under the care of the Patriarchate of Constantinople. While the
      Archdiocese enjoys a good measure of internal autonomy and is headed by an
      Archbishop, it owes its spiritual allegiance to the Church of Constantinople.

The Orthodox Church


The Orthodox Church proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In the Greek language,
the word for Gospel is Evangelion which means literally "the good news." The
good news of Orthodox Christianity is a proclamation of God's unbounded and
sacrificial love for man kind, as well as the revelation of the true destiny of
the human person. Reflecting on the joyous message of the Gospel, Saint Gregory
of Nyssa wrote in the fourth century: The good news is that man is no longer an
outcast nor expelled from God's Kingdom; but that he is again a son, again God's
subject.

Orthodoxy believes that the supreme treasure which God wishes to share with us
is His own life. Our faith begins with the affirmation that God has acted in
history to permit us to participate in His love and His goodness, to be citizens
of His Kingdom. This conviction is expressed so beautifully in the prayer of the
Liturgy which says: "You have not ceased to do all things until You brought us
to heaven and granted us the Kingdom to come."

The initiation of love of God the Father is perfectly expressed and embodied in
the Person and Ministry of Jesus Christ. The whole purpose of the Incarnation of
the Son of God was to restore humanity to fellowship with God. The great
teachers and Fathers of the Orthodox Church constantly reaffirmed this
conviction by proclaiming that God had become what we are in order that we could
become what He is.

Christ is exalted as our Light and our Life. In His Person there is a unity of
humanity and divinity which each of us is called to share. In His way of life.
there is the model of authentic human life which we are invited to follow. In
His victorious Resurrection, there is liberation for us from all powers which
can keep us from the Kingdom. Through Christ, then, God the Father has
repossessed us and has called us to be His sons and daughters.

THEOSIS
The fundamental vocation and goal of each and every person is to share in the
life of God. We have been created by God to live in fellowship with Him. The
descent of God in the Person of Jesus Christ has made possible the human ascent
to the Father through the work of the Holy Spirit. Orthodoxy believes that each
Christian is involved in a movement toward God which is known as theosis or
deification.

Theosis describes the spiritual pilgrimage in which each person becomes ever
more perfect, ever more holy, ever more united with God. It is not a static
relationship, nor does it take place only after death. On the contrary, theosis
is a movement of love toward God which begins for each Christian with the rites
of Baptism and which continues throughout this life, as well as the life which
is to come. Salvation means liberation from sin, death, and evil. Redemption
means our repossession by God. In Orthodoxy, both salvation and redemption are
within the context of theosis. This rich vision of Christian life was expressed
well by Saint Peter when he wrote in the early pages of his second Epistle that
we are called "to become partakers of the Divine nature." It was also affirmed
by Saint Basil the Great when he described man as the creature who has received
the order to become a god.

These are certainly bold affirmations which must be properly understood. The
Orthodox Church understands theosis as a union with the energies of God and not
with the essence of God which always remains hidden and unknown. However, the
experience of the Church testifies that this is a true union with God. It is
also one which is not pantheistic, because in this union the divine and the
human retain their unique characteristics. In this sense, Orthodoxy believes
that human life reaches its fulfillment only when it becomes divine.

THE HOLY SPIRIT
The ever-deepening union of each Christian with God is not a magical or
automatic process. While Christ has destroyed the powers of sin, death, and evil
once and for all, this victory must be appropriated by each person in
cooperation with the Holy Spirit. Each person is called to join with the
"lifegiving and liberating Spirit" in realizing the fulness of human life in
communion with the Father. The Holy Spirit is the agent of deification whose
task it is to incorporate us into the life of the Holy Trinity. However, the
Spirit always recognizes our human freedom and invites our active cooperation in
perfecting the "image and likeness of God" with which each of us is created.
Our participation in the life of the Holy Trinity, which we know as theosis,
takes place within the Church. For the Orthodox, the Church is the meeting place
between God and His people. The Holy Spirit and the Church are organically
linked. In the second century, Saint Irenaeus reminded us of this by saying:
"Where the Church is there is the Spirit, and where the Spirit is there is the
Church." The Holy Spirit moves through the life of the Church to reveal our
common humanity in Christ and to unite us with the Father. We acquire the Holy
Spirit through our celebration of the Eucharist and the reception of Holy
Communion, through our participation in the Sacraments, through our discipline
of daily prayer, and through the practice of fasting, all of which result in a
Christ-like life.

The Holy Spirit, Who is honored as the Lord and Giver of life, is manifest in
the life of the Church in order to bring our lives to perfection, and to make us
responsible and loving human beings. The fruit of Worship is the gifts of the
Spirit. In his letter to the Galatians, Saint Paul identified these as: "love,
joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, fidelity, gentleness, and
self-control." Certainly, these are the virtues of a Christ-like life. They
testify to the fact that the love of God and the love of neighbor are
inseparable.

THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE CHURCH
The reality of theosis not only bears witness to the love of God who wishes to
share Him self with us but also expresses a very positive view of the human
person. Orthodoxy believes that each person has an intrinsic value and
importance in virtue of his or her unique relationship to God. The human person
is never seen as being totally depraved. The "image of God" which can be
distorted by sin, can never be eradicated. Through the life of the Church, there
is always the opportunity for fulfillment. When the Sacraments are administered,
they are always offered to the individual by name. This action not only reminds
us of the dignity of each person but also emphasizes the responsibility each
person has for his or her relationship to God.

While Orthodoxy recognizes the value of the person, it does not believe that we
are meant to be isolated or self-sufficient. Each person is called to be an
important member of the Church. Orthodoxy believes that one cannot be a
Christian without being a part of the Church. The process of theosis takes place
with the context of a believing community.

To be united with God within the midst of the Church does not mean that our
unique personalities are destroyed. We are not engulfed by an impersonal force
or power. As with all love which is true and valuable, God's love for each of us
respects our personhood. His love is not one which destroys. God's love is one
which reveals, elevates, and perfects our true selves. By entering into the life
of God, we become the persons we are meant to be.

Luciferian-Globalisation-666

Globalisation and the New World Order aim to dynastic homogenizing peoples and cultures and integrated into the design of the so-called New Age. According to the New Age, every 2000 years humanity has entered a new era. Now we enter the era of Aquarius. The old age of Pisces, where Christianity prevailed over. Now wait for a new messiah, a new Christ, who will bring new truths to mankind. And this of course only enough to understand someone that so-called New Age is opposite and incompatible with our Orthodox faith. Basically the New Age is hardly new. The basic message is the ancient  lie that man is by nature of god and the main focus is the old plan of dark masonry-type organizations and Zionist world domination.

The “Works of Mercy”


The “works of mercy,” both physical
and spiritual—giving help and
comfort to those in need, offering
forgiveness and tolerance—are
embodiments of the words spoken
by Christ himself in chapter 25 of
Matthew’s Gospel:
Come, you that are blessed by my Father,
inherit the kingdom prepared for you
from the foundation of the world: for
I was hungry and you gave me food, I
was thirsty and you gave me something
to drink, I was a stranger and you
welcomed me, I was naked and you gave
me clothing. I was sick and you took care
of me, I was in prison and you visited
me. Then the righteous will answer
him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you
hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and
gave you something to drink?” . . . And
the king will answer them, “Truly I tell
you, just as you did it to one of the least of
these who are members of my family,
you did it to me.”
—Matthew 25:34–40

Separation of Catholic and Orthodox Churches


The first real, although still partial, split came with the Nestorian
and Monophysite heresies condemned at the Councils of Ephesus
(431) and Chalcedon (451). A much more serious separation
occurred in 1054, when the Eastern churches and Rome mutually
excommunicated each other—ending recognition of the validity
of the other as a proper church. The two main issues involved
in this separation were the primacy of the pope and the manner
of explaining the doctrine of the Trinity. The Orthodox accepted
the pope as the most honored bishop of the Christian world, but
he was still one bishop among many. They thus did not believe
that the pope should have direct authority over all Christians.

The Orthodox Church also refused to accept the Catholic change
made to the Nicene/Constantinople Creed concerning the .
relationship of the Holy Spirit to the Father and the Son. For the Eastern
churches the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father alone. The
Catholic Church declares that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the
Father and the Son, Jesus. The disagreements became so intense
that they led to the mutual excommunication of the patriarch of
Constantinople, the head of the Orthodox Church, and the papal
legate representing the power and authority of the pope as head
of the Western Church. The lengthy process of estrangement
continued until it culminated in a complete split upon the sack of
Orthodox Constantinople by the Catholic Crusaders in 1204

Saint Paisiou-Injustice is a great sin. Injustice picks God rage.


Big deal to have the man God's blessing! Wealth is! Whatever
a blessing, stands, not demolished. Whatever has no blessing, does not hold. injustice
is a great sin. All sins are extenuating circumstances, the injustice is not;
picks up the wrath of God. Awesome! Those who are unjust, they put fire on their heads. from
On the one hand you see doing an injustice and the other dying own
their people and not paying attention. How do people make progress with
injustices? They do what they do, and give rights to the devil, so
this after tests passed, find their illnesses etc. you and say: "Do
prayer to heal. "
Most bad happening is unfair. When eg gathered with
injustice property, people live a few years as noblemen and after
give, what they gathered, doctors. What says Psalm? "Kreisson poorly attached
right for riches sinners long. ""Easy Come, Easy Go".
Find gather, leaving all vanish. Rarely, in very few happens to
are sick, the bankruptcies etc. a test of God. They will have
net salary. In this case usually made after richer, as
Job. But many people who come aleiotoi, is this;
some injustice they have done.
The unjust, and generally any guilty when you do not ask forgiveness, suffering
the conscience and in addition to the indignation of the wronged. Why,
when wronged not forgive him and growl, then the unjust suffering
much tortured. Can not sleep. Like hitting the waves and
bring whirligig. It is mysterious thing how the information! Like, when a
someone loves and thinks in a good way, she learns, so
also in this case. Oh, the grumble of the other makes a mess! and
far be it in Australia, what in Johannesburg, can not be
quieted when indignant the other because of him.

Η υπερκατανάλωση ζάχαρης σχετίζεται με:

Επιστήμονες από τα Κέντρα Ελέγχου & Πρόληψης των Ασθενειών (CDC) των ΗΠΑ ανέλυσαν στοιχεία από 42.880 εθελοντές και κατέληξαν στο συμπέρασμα πως όσο περισσότερη είναι η επιπρόσθετη ζάχαρη στην ημερήσια διατροφή τόσο μεγαλύτερος είναι ο κίνδυνος για την καρδιαγγειακή υγεία – με την κατανάλωση άνω του 10% των ημερήσιων θερμίδων από πρόσθετη ζάχαρη να είναι η πιο επιζήμια.

Η μελέτη αυτή υποδηλώνει μια συσχέτιση και όχι μια σχέση αιτίας – αποτελέσματος και το θέμα χρειάζεται περαιτέρω διερεύνηση. Η έως τώρα εμπειρία, πάντως, δείχνει πως μολονότι η υπερκατανάλωση οποιουδήποτε θρεπτικού συστατικού οδηγεί σε αυξημένο κίνδυνο χρόνιων νοσημάτων, αυτό δεν ευθύνεται ποτέ από μόνο του για την εμφάνισή τους.

Πώς μπορεί να βλάψει την καρδιαγγειακή υγεία η υπερκατανάλωση ζάχαρης

Κατ’ αρχάς αυξάνει τις θερμίδες που προσλαμβάνει κανείς και επομένως μπορεί να οδηγήσει στην παχυσαρκία, που με τη σειρά της ενοχοποιείται για αύξηση της αρτηριακής πίεσης.

Επιπλέον, η υπερκατανάλωση πρόσθετων σακχάρων (ζάχαρη, φρουκτόζη, μέλι κ.ά.) συσχετίζεται με αύξηση των τριγλυκεριδίων, τα οποία επίσης επηρεάζουν την καρδιαγγειακή υγεία.

Μπορεί επίσης να επηρεάσει αρνητικά τον γλυκαιμικό έλεγχο (ρύθμιση επιπέδων σακχάρου στο αίμα) σε άτομα υψηλού κινδύνου ή με διαγνωσμένο σακχαρώδη διαβήτη τύπου 2, που επίσης αποτελεί παράγοντα κινδύνου για καρδιαγγειακά νοσήματα.

Τι διαφορά έχει η ζάχαρη από τα σάκχαρα

Η ζάχαρη είναι ένα από τα πολλά σάκχαρα και ανήκει στην ευρύτερη κατηγορία των υδατανθράκων. Ο οργανισμός διαχειρίζεται όλους τους υδατάνθρακες (άρα και τη ζάχαρη) με τον ίδιο τρόπο: προμηθεύεται από αυτούς ενέργεια, την οποία αν δεν κάψει (λ.χ. μέσω της άσκησης) θα αποθηκεύσει με τη μορφή του λίπους.

Πόση ζάχαρη συνιστάται για καλή υγεία

Ο Παγκόσμιος Οργανισμός Υγείας συνιστά η επιπρόσθετη ζάχαρη να μην υπερβαίνει το 10% των ημερήσιων θερμίδων (δηλαδή 200 θερμίδες στο μέσο διαιτολόγιο των 2.000 θερμίδων).

Δεδομένου ότι ένα κουταλάκι του γλυκού ζάχαρη παρέχει περίπου 20 θερμίδες, η μετρημένη κατανάλωσή της (λ.χ. ένα-δύο καφέδες την ημέρα με 1-2 κουταλάκια του γλυκού ζάχαρη ή ένα-δύο γλυκά την εβδομάδα) στο πλαίσιο ενός ισορροπημένου διαιτολογίου δεν αποτελεί κίνδυνο για τα άτομα που δεν έχουν προβλήματα υγείας, εφόσον υπάρχει και κάποιας μορφής συστηματική φυσική δραστηριότητα.

Πώς μπορεί κάποιος να καταλάβει πόση ζάχαρη περιέχει ένα τρόφιμο

Κυρίως διαβάζοντας τις συσκευασίες των τροφίμων. Μία πρώτη ιδέα είναι να κοιτάξει την σειρά των συστατικών: το πρώτο είναι αυτό με τη μεγαλύτερη περιεκτικότητα και το τελευταίο εκείνο με τη μικρότερη. Συνεπώς, όσο πιο κοντά στην αρχή των συστατικών αναγράφεται η λέξη «ζάχαρη» τόσο περισσότερη περιέχει.

Επίσης, η ζάχαρη εμπεριέχεται στους «υδατάνθρακες» που επίσης αναγράφονται στις συσκευασίες. Συνήθως γράφουν από κάτω «εκ των οποίων σάκχαρα», που συμπεριλαμβάνουν τη ζάχαρη (αποτελεί το μεγαλύτερο ποσοστό τους).

Μια άλλη καλή ιδέα είναι να προτιμώνται τρόφιμα και ροφήματα που αναγράφουν «χωρίς προσθήκη ζάχαρης» ή «χωρίς ζάχαρη» ή «100% φυσικό προϊόν».

Με ποιους άλλους τρόπους επηρεάζει η ζάχαρη τον οργανισμό

Πρόσφατες μελέτες συσχέτισαν την υπερκατανάλωση ζάχαρης με την εμφάνιση καρκίνου και ηπατικών διαταραχών. Η παρατήρηση αυτή δεν έχει ακόμα αποδειχθεί πέραν πάσης αμφιβολίας και αν ισχύει πιθανώς θα είναι μόνο εφόσον η κατανάλωση είναι τόσο υψηλή, ώστε να συνεισφέρει σημαντικά στην εκδήλωση παχυσαρκίας.

Κατηγορίες υδατανθράκων/σακχάρων

* Μονοσακχαρίτες (γλυκόζη, φρουκτόζη, γαλακτόζη) και δισακχαρίτες (σακχαρόζη ή κοινή ζάχαρη, λακτόζη και μαλτόζη). Είναι οι πιο απλές μορφές υδατανθράκων.

* Ολιγοσακχαρίτες (αλυσίδες 3 έως 10 μόρια γλυκόζης ή πολυμερή φρουκτόζης)

* Πολυσακχαρίτες. Η πιο σύνθετη μορφή υδατανθράκων. Κύριοι εκπρόσωποι είναι το άμυλο και η κυτταρίνη. Το άμυλο υπάρχει στα δημητριακά, τα όσπρια, τα λαχανικά και τα φρούτα. Η κυτταρίνη αποτελεί μια μορφή υδατανθράκων που δεν μπορεί να διασπαστεί από τον οργανισμό και είναι γνωστή και ως «φυτικές ίνες».

Οι δομικές ομάδες όλων των σακχάρων είναι η γλυκόζη, η φρουκτόζη και η γαλακτόζη, που συνδυάζονται ανά δύο μεταξύ τους για να μετατραπούν σε ζάχαρη (γλυκόζη και φρουκτόζη), λακτόζη (γλυκόζη και γαλακτόζη) κ.λπ.

The time that orthodoxy will prevail is close

Let we know that not only are natural laws, but also spiritual.
Therefore the wrath of God can not be addressed by cooperative
sinners (because double rage will obtain), but by repentance and observance of commands
Lord.
The elder Sophronius of the Holy Mountain (1993) telling the Essex England the
like the Holy Paisius: "The Association of Churches is difficult, if not impossible. those
speak for Churches union do not know the mentality of heterodox
or the level of Orthodoxy.
St. Paisius, the above knowledge was, advises everyone to be more
restrained, because there will be the time that the Lord will present their Marcus
Polite and quickly palms, to gather all
kataskandalismena our brothers, to confess the Orthodox Faith, to
fasten Tradition and give great joy to our Mother.
Essentially the elder prophesy a truly Orthodox Synod. Perhaps the 8th
Ecumenical Council for which prophesied that would become St. Nilus the Myrovlytis:
Afterward he made at the eighth meeting, and she wants to choose good from the
bad, ie Orthodoxy, as the farmer chooses the wheat from the chaff. and
then you make peace a little while people, and again will switch the concurring opinion
them in evil ....
Peace in the world can not come without the peacemaker, living and unadulterated
teaching of Orthodoxy. Spreading however, though continued after the fall of
City to a degree, will be maximized and will officially spread dynamically after the 3rd
World War II, General War like onomazei St. Cosmas of Aetolia.
This will be the period blink of Orthodoxy, for a short time, because
then begin again people drifting into evil.

Usually the chocolate except the cocoa contains the following:



Protein: It is essential in cell metabolism.

Fat: Their percentage varies depending on the type of chocolate.

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble protein is important for the structure of cell membranes.

Calcium, phosphorus, magnesium: Is minerals play an important role in the metabolism of bones and teeth.

Iron: It is necessary for synthesis of hemoglobin which carries oxygen in the red blood cells.

Caffeine: It is a stimulant for the central nervous system.

Copper: Contributes to iron metabolism, helps in the synthesis of melanin in the skin, the hair and helps in the central nervous system function

Vegetable substances with antioxidant properties: The cocoa from which chocolate is made, contains more than 600 vegetable substances, such as polyphenols, which have antioxidant properties. These substances neutralize free radicals of oxygen generated by the normal metabolism. Oxygen free radicals can damage cell membranes and contribute to the development of atherosclerosis, heart disease and cancer. We also have an effect on the mechanisms of aging in the body. Dietary antioxidants contained in cocoa may protect against heart disease and cancer. It should be noted that the increase of the content in cocoa chocolate increases the concentration of polyphenols.
So we see that chocolate contains many useful and beneficial ingredients. As with many good and pleasant things in our lives, when we use it properly and without exaggeration, gives us satisfaction and nutrients. In a healthy diet, cocoa and chocolate offer significant when consumed in moderation.

The protection conferred by the chocolate against heart disease and cancer due to antioxidants such as polyphenols and catechins. The antioxidants of the chocolate is more than the tea, depending on its content, in cocoa.

In conclusion, we emphasize that chocolate and cocoa when eaten in moderation, can help our body against certain degenerative diseases, heart disease and cancer. Investigations are continuing to document conclusively protective health effects of cocoa and chocolate.

It is interesting that the chocolate contains substances that affect the brain. It has been calculated that the chocolate contains more than 300 active substances. Some of these affect the human brain and release endorphins.

Endorphins are natural hormones in our bodies, which make us feel pleasantly.

Also chocolate contains small amounts of caffeine are stimulatory, iron which is useful for the treatment of anemia as well as magnesium. Magnesium when low blood increases the pains that women have before beginning their period.

Additionally chocolate contains substances that affect the neurotransmitter system on which the brain function based. Specifically, the chocolate contains tryptophan which our brains uses to synthesize serotonin.

Serotonin produces feelings of satisfaction and happiness. There are other substances in chocolate cause pleasant changes in our emotional world and at our disposal.

All these facts explain why chocolate is extremely popular and many people may have a craving for it.

Finally, I would like to emphasize that chocolate when consumed in moderation, has positive effects not only on our physical health and our mental world and our mood. The positive effects of chocolate on health increases with increasing content of cocoa due to the antioxidants in which cocoa is rich.

Theology is, for the Fathers of the Orthodox Church, all about love.

A young man called me recently to discuss his family’s movement toward the Orthodox
Church. He told me a priceless story about how his seven-year old daughter helped him and
his wife understand an Orthodox practice that is often a hindrance to inquirers. Although the
family had icons in their home they could not grasp the reason for the practice of venerating
(kissing) them. One evening after prayers with his daughter she looked at the icon in her
room and asked, “Who is on those pictures, Daddy?”
He replied, “The Virgin Mary and Jesus.”
She picked up the icon, kissed it and hugged it to her chest exclaiming, “Oh, daddy, they love
you so much!”
“Then,” he told me, “We understood. It’s all about affection.”
Love, in fact, is the heart and soul of the theology of the early Church Fathers and of the
Orthodox Church. The Fathers of the Church—East and West—in the early centuries shared
the same perspective: humanity longs for liberation from the tyranny of death, sin, corruption
and the devil which is only possible through the Life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Only the compassionate advent of God in the flesh could accomplish our salvation, because
only He could conquer these enemies of humanity. It is impossible for Orthodoxy to imagine
life outside the all-encompassing love and grace of the God who came Himself to rescue His
fallen creation

NOTES

Not everything that Praise's Creator has not the Spirit of the Creator-2-I do believe all this Charismatic nonsense and the Pentecostal Word of Faith Movement is rooted in Mysticism.3- I would recommend all Pentecostals or those of Charismatic persuasion that have filtered into other denominations, to hear them out.  Stop trusting your heart, (your feelings, emotions, etc.,) for "the heart is deceitful above all things.-4The problem I see in Pentecostalism is the Continuationist belief, and borne out of that is what we find today - all this wacky nonsense that is so far outside the Biblical parameters, because they are based on one's own thoughts, feelings, emotions, ecstatic utterances and experiences, all of which must be tested against the Word of God, and most of which fails the test.  If we don't "test all things," how do we know if it's actually from God?.5-.You are not going to be saved until you humble yourself.You need to pray everyday..6-Most humans want to keep on sinning,doing evil.Love at all costs,forgive everyone that has hurt you.Humble yourself so God can use you.7-The catholic church has always been a tool of Satan to deceive people as we can see it even nowadays.8-At 5 centuries gone by Luther until now, the Orthodox Church was vindicated. Protestantism splintered into thousands of different, and often opposite (doctrinal) between the groups. Yet each group insists that escapes from the doctrine of the Holy Scripture, and that it accepts only what the Bible says, nothing less, and nothing more.

SHOCKING! This is how they are planning to start ww3?

Their CIA/Mossad created version of Islam is corrupt and is not very far from their  teachings of the Qur'an.  It was not Syria or Hezbollah who sent mercenaries to other countries to kill Muslims. ISIS goal is to get the world to hate Islam and Muslims so much, that it would give Israel the justification it needs to wage war on all Muslims to protect itself against crazy terrorists, just like ISIS gave Israel the false justification to attack Gaza by killing the 3 Israeli teens, according to Israel.The Religion of Peace ??? which one? None of them can be trusted.
The Final Crusade is upon us. world war three is coming soon.Everything is plan,everything is ready.BUT BECAUSE GOD HAS TO TAKE ONE SIDE.I TELL YOU THIS ONE.ORTHODOXY WILL PREVAIL= AFTER THE BIG WAR.THE WW3 WILL START AFTER THE INVATION OF TURKEY TO
 ΑΙΓΑΊΟ -AEGEAN SEA-THE SATANIC PERSONS LESS THAN 10 THAT RULE THE WORLD BY SATAN,HAVE TAKEN THEIR DECISION=DEATH TO THE HUMANITY,SO THAT THEY CAN PROMOTE THEIR SATANIC LEADER.BUT GOD HAS OTHER PLANS FOR THEM

sects:

 This starts from the observation that supposedly nowadays there is not a church that is fully preserve the truth of the doctrine of Christ. That no church does not hold an absolute degree of knowledge of the mystery of the holy, charismatic Christian life in moral and ascetic level. That many of the churches, called Christian, have "equal grace," and therefore must bring about the union of the churches by a common denominator for all. One of the most frequently asked questions, you happen to face, is the question of who is saved and who is not. These people usually think that saved not only the Orthodox (in accordance with the teaching of the Orthodox Church) or only the Catholic (according to the teaching of Catholic), but all righteous people who believe in Christ. This view came from the Protestants and believers of other churches. There are many among the Orthodox, supported this view. Some even think that either one of the existing churches can not accept the fullness of knowledge and grace, because each of them in one degree or another has deviated from the truth. They always believe that only now, at the end of the ages, fully captured the spirit of the doctrine of Christ and so far all the Christian world, the flow of so many centuries, was in error. They say that now it is time, to unite all the divided parts in a universal and apostolic Church. This, according to them, will hold the full truth in all respects, if in (above) union accepted only that which is a common feature for all the churches. Others, something even worse, meditate in their hearts for some kind of high mysticism, which goes beyond the ecclesiastical conception of the Christian religion, so ... I do not want to talk more to all this. I only wish to close this issue to say parenthetically that much I would like (and therefore pray to God) you are not deceived by this, but I firmly believe with the heart and the mind that exists on Earth that one, unique and True Church founded by the Lord. The Church maintains intact and undamaged teaching of Christ, possesses the fullness of knowledge and grace and is infallible. What some do not seem to be complete teaching, is nothing else than the possibility of scientific treatment offered the unlimited and inexhaustible wealth. This does not conflict at all with that we said above about having the knowledge of the crew

PSEFDOTHERAPEIES Pentecostals




Key features of Pentecostal error belongs and their claim on the treatment of various diseases as evidence and proof of the Holy Spirit's presence in their lives, then called "the baptism with the Holy Spirit."

But this is real treat diseases, such as after stubbornness support various Pentecostals of various tendencies and shades? What is the authenticity of these "treatments"? We presence the gift of healing as a gift of the Holy Spirit in the error space, especially in polyethylene groupsu some eo these are unitarian? Undoubtedly not.

The reality is completely different from what they claim Pentecostals. Other treatments are psefdotherapeies, Raised artificially by them for internal consumption and external projection, and others are actions of evil spirits, according to the teaching of Scripture and the Church Fathers.

We will mention three characteristic witnesses thepolyethyleneis confirm, so we think realistically, the allegation that our psefdotherapeion . In fact both of them come not from the Orthodox world, but are endoprotestantiki criticized the claims of Pentecostals. So we are highly relevant. Great importance has also and the third witness, who comes from a brother, who was for 11 years Pentecostal.


a) The first witness

It comes from the Protestant yperdogmatiko magazine "Tychicus '. In an article in this magazine, entitled "religious [Christian] lied," reported the following: "There are few foreign preachers coming Pentecostal churches telling the most unlikely "miracles"(But always be on the outside and never in Greece) ..." [www.sdg-com.gr/tyxikos/01-78-4.html ]. So that the "improbable miracles", which the Greek Protestant them as false, since Pentecostals presented as supposed gifts of the Holy Spirit.

b) The second testimony

The second witness is references an active Pentecostal. In the very long and concisely written, Pentecostal book " World Pentecost. A Pentecostal - Charismatic Encyclopedia"[sel.678] On treatments Pentecostals, plus top reveals and indicates that several Pentecostals therapists:

• Use of "therapy techniques, pseftothafmata economic exploitation of religious feelings" [sel.679]

It states: "The fact is that none of them had" healing gift "but maybe some a" gift of faith "in conjunction with the faith of believers." [sel.679]

• Tones: "the pretext that they have" charisma treatment ", not having the forces pretend begin to say that" blame "the believer who is not a miracle or that a miracle happened invisibly and anaisthitos and treatment will occur later." [sel.679]

• Refers to "greenhouse treatments "Characteristically calls them," not due to some charisma. Everyone who would make a prayer to such a high dedication and emotional environment, would result either from the energy of faith or exhilarating delirium"[sel.680-681].

"He admits that" the faithful, on the methods, should be said that practiced methods and sensationalism psychological trickswith music subscription that creates artificial flareAnd invited the faithful to have blind faith in each statement of therapists' [sel.682].

We will complete our reference to this Pentecostal book, citing a further testimony of the many listed on the psefdotherapeies Pentecostals. Refers So that "respected, with global prestige Pentecostal leaders Gordon Lindsay and DONALD GEEopenly talked about "scams and tricks"»sel.683].

I think it is clear, and beyond doubt, after all these mentioned, that the gifts of cures that are supposed to take Pentecostals are events and actions evil spirits and illusory phenomena during the patristic teaching.


c) The third witness

The third incident is or recorded and published a confession former Pentecostal. The opinion has weight, because situated just eleven years into the error of Pentecostal experience - testimony lodge is several confirmed.

He says, therefore, former Pentecostal brother Mr. Ch. G. "I have seen paralyzed to walk once in tongues a charismatic pastor, but this treatment is not lasted. Their justification for this was that man sinned again and God withdrew treat! (...).

"Miracles" are held every Sunday at charismatic churches. It is their usual show. He hears that someone cured of illness or cancer or whatever, but never see evidence '.

And this incident think that confirms unambiguous title of this small article on the much-'treatments' - experiences of the Pentecostals. It should also be noted that sometimes the area of ​​Pentecostal error, except psefdotherapeies considered manifestations of the Holy Spirit, taking place between them and mostwiles of evil spiritsThat external impress.

The Orthodox Christian, however, knows very well that, according to the holy Fathers, or delegated by God or by imagination, psefdothafmata causing the unsupported sensationalism do demons (Εξοδ. 7.11-22. 8,7-17. Πράξ. 8,9-16,16-18).

Therefore having firm belief that the Church as the Body of Christ is the only place salvation , is not impressed by any phenomenon which acts in the error space. In contrast, with due caution and discrimination always remember that in the Bible the God-man and the holy apostles have warned us that Satan "is transformed into an angel of light"(II Cor. 11.14), that"not wicked people and charmers prokopsousin for the lesser evil, planontes and deceived"(II Tim. 3.4), and therefore"Not always spiritual beliefs, but the spirits tested if from God Estin"(I Jn. 4.1), since"Apostisontai some did faith, coming pnefmasi planois and doctrines of demons"(I Tim. 4.1).



The tongues of Pentecostal


Mone of the main falsehoods Pentecostal error and the predominantly external criterion by which the various Pentecostal groups believe someone as you saved it is the gift of speaking in tongues, which they perceive as personal fulfillment of each one with the Holy Spirit, to repeat the event of Pentecost, as happened to the holy Apostles. [www.Pentecost.gr/Greece/history keim.htm. H. D.Reimer. Pfingstbewegung, Munehen 1995, σελ. 961-962].

The called speaking in tongues is proof pursuant Pentecostals of their "baptism with the Holy Spirit" [A.-S. McPherson, symbol of Pisteos.The four Square Gospel. Sel.19-21. Lymperis Siologkas, Steps leading to the blessings of God. P.17] and guaranteed receipt of the Christ at the rapture of the church, before the advent of the Antichrist, according to another their falsehoods.

Taftochronos supposedly is certification criterion that someone belongs to the church and are living members, since according to the misled allegedly true church in the end times is true feature of speaking in tongues.

As proof of their claims rely crowd hagiographical passages related to the presence of the gift of tongues in the years of the Apostles. What relationship but are the villages mentioned in the gift of speaking in tongues, as it existed in the ancient Church, the phenomenon of speaking in tongues Pentecostals? Undoubtedly no. Moreover, not only are not related, because misinterpret and why the submissions and the tongues of Pentecostal experiences are radically opposed to the Bible.

As examples will highlight the following:

They cite the prophecy Joel 3.1-2considering as pouring of the Spirit in the last days the phenomena of the area. Last days But in this passage is considered the first advent of Christ why the Apostle. Peter in Acts. 2.16 states that the prophecy has already been fulfilled on the day of Pentecost. On the day of Pentecost the Apostles speak foreign languages ​​existent, familiar, understandable (Πράξ. 2,4).

This is confirmed by dozens of people from different origins, who listened and understood the greatness of God everyone in the language of (Πράξ. 2, 6-8,11).

In contrast, in gatherings of Pentecostals who tongues gibber, say incomprehensible words, unknown, incomprehensible, asyntachtes sentences sometimes resemble delirium accompanied where appropriate and with spasms of the body.

When the apostle Paul may not have all the gift of speaking in tongues (I Kor.12,4-11, 30).

The opposite claim Pentecostals , Seen as the sine qua non proof filling of the believer with the Holy Spirit. When the apostle Paul, also the gift of speaking in tongues is placed last series of gifts (I Cor. 12.8 to 10, 28). Pentecostals here reverse the order and consider first, main and basic.

The Bible says that speaking in tongues was then given as a supernatural sign not for believers but for unbelievers, to motivate and to believe(I Cor. 14, 22).

The opposite teach Pentecostals, And consider it as the first point of salvation is certain.

Tha complete our observations with another label key referred to the character of the experience of speaking in tongues Pentecostals. While the gifts granted by God to the Church given freely and effortlessly to increase in Christ and unity of His Body (AKor.12), speaking in tongues Pentecostals is the fruit of various techniques, exhilarating events, emotional, and psychological submission pressures.


Nomizoume that is understood, as far as we mentioned, that the tongues of modern Pentecostal has nothing to do with the gift of speaking in tongues of the ancient Church. Are energies of the spirit of error, which being transformed into an angel of light presents them as somehow off - experience the filling with the Holy Spirit.
