From speech p.Antoniou, - towards students

1 ) It is up to people as once to die , but after this the judgment: ( Evr.9 , 27) ! Which means that others will go after the Second Coming of Christ , with the angels in the kingdom of God and others to eternal hell and punishment . We must not forget that one day we will die . This not only has the highest philosophy ( cf. Alexander the Great , a student of Aristotle ) , but also a safe condition of salvation ( M.Antonios , life under M.Athanasiou ) as they reveal old and modern Fathers of the Church .
There is no greater error and trick of the devil, from shakes our confidence in the words of Christ and the truths of our church , that we are not absolutely sure of Heaven and Hell . Therefore Christ Himself our clarifying definitively
2 ) Each person will be judged by his actions , as clearly shown in the cut mellousis crisis , where those who did practice the love will be found to the right of Christ and those who showed hardness will be found with the devil and his demons . This is also the story of the " rich man and poor Lazarus ." Those who apply the will of God with patience and perseverance , you will find the kingdom , those who neglect and neglect divine duties and obligations , jeopardizing their future , anti lentil dish , " what gar man give in exchange for his soul " , as stressed Christ himself . With what delights and what goods can compare the kingdom of God , but qualitatively and quantitatively ( " essential is the kingdom of God edible and drinking of " Rom.14 , 17) , since it is eternal , as we confess in the Creed " and His reign , have no end . "
3 ) Meanwhile Hades there is no repentance ! Then , in another life , can open our eyes and see the harsh reality , but it is impossible to repent . In nothing benefited the rich information that Lazarus is part pastures green , Abraham's bosom , not even intellect repentance . All I ask is a small consolation , a favor , but this is impossible . Nothing in the benefits and the fact that he thought his brothers ! In essence , trying to justify the evafto of " if I knew exactly the truth , found myself not here " ! But the Patriarch Abraham apostomonei . You were my dear God's Law and the Prophets , but despised and not apply everything I say . You had the good conscience that God gave you , but took care to smother to have fun . Enjoy the pleasures and wellbeing , while the poor Lazarus had all suffering and ever complained . Law is So now everyone can reap the fruits of his works before God . As rolled , so you will sleep .
This is why the Fathers emphasize that what makes the man 's salvation , let us do as breathing and struggling . Says an elder in senile : If you fall into a sin and get up and start to grieve and repent giaftin noticed not stop regrets and sighs before the Lord , until the day of your death . Otherwise , you will fall again soon, in the same cesspool . The godly sorrow is for the soul bridle not let it fall into sin .
4 ) Not only there is no repentance , and no bridge to paradise . Cried the rich and no one could hear him . And Abraham informs him that " gap mega estiriktai " . Impossible is now gone to repent and he the devil , the inventor of evil , which is why in every way seeks to avenge his creative and deceive people by leading them away from the Truth and the Light .
5 ) God has given us all the necessary information and evidence for the afterlife and is from the evil one to ask more ... that only as an excuse may work for the sinful life we do. It is credible that God gave us all the evidence , and the fact that he who did not spare the angels , his first senior creations and how we believe we can amnesty , being in sin , without seeking it ? Especially since shed His precious Blood to relieve us from propatoriki guilt and sin .
Why always the man asks evidence on evidence? And indeed from the God who is always reliable ?
But when you borrow someone and think only of his words, that will take them back , you efkolopistos , even if they lose . When you start a journey think you'll go , even if you know that are killed each year more than 2000 people ! When playing your team , even though they have good tips , you still hope in unlikely a victory . When the devil and he says that if you repent today , tomorrow will surely able to do it, you believe him , even though logic says that " the postponement is mother ever ."
And do not believe your Creator that says " now esti weather welcome , now the day of salvation " now and not tomorrow , you do not know where and how you are.
Because when the benevolent God and the holy church , they tell the truth and ask for a letter of guarantee ? Do you seek to resurrect someone from the dead to be informed ! And let's say that this was for the previous generation , for others, for yesterday , came to a dead man . You will still be asked to do for you , today , again and again, and again to make sure you would have doubts . As I read again these days a letter to a Christian , who disputed with various arguments , the true existence of the Holy Fire , what we saw and video taped . Those proofs though the bring again he'll have his own arguments .
- Then Abraham said to the rich - and even a dead be resurrected , not going to believe those who have porothei with sin . Did the Pharisees believed that they had sealed the tomb with entourage , not to steal the Christ? When the soldiers told them that was resurrected , they instead believe , bribed them not to say nowhere and exposed ...
So Resurrected One and informed for argument's sake .
Resurrected once and for all , to inform all the doubting Thomases that there is eternal life and judgment. You heard what he said in the thief on the cross ? Be sure Olas tonight and will be with me in Paradise. " We are punished justly , penitent robber said , adding the << remember me Sir ... >> " Repentance , the last moment of life , and put the thief in Paradise. In a single robber , though! What happened to the other ? Who asked him to be the devil's advocate and insult an innocent ? Nobody told him to believe , but to intimidate and Olas ? He chose unfortunately the place.
So Resurrected Christ to tell us that we too will be resurrected on that day will come and then glorified " arpagisometha in nefelais " to meet him and to live eternally with Him .
He took full body in heaven , the prophet Enoch and Elijah because applying His will and gave them advance incorruptibility . To thus prefiguring our own glory .
Resurrected Christ and maintains myrovlyzonta and incorruptible relics of saints , to remember that we are heading to incorruptibility and immortality .
So Keep in mind STOU Hades ( death ) and never despair , says the Saint Silouan .
