  • By no means was I implying that the book wasn't correct. All I meants was that satan knows it very well and when satan comes to you he doesn't say "i'm satan, BOO!" He's sly and gets on your good side first. When your put into a temptation it doe…
  • As Michael said, the devil fell because he could not bow down to Christ. When we are tempted we are tempted because the devil tempts us, so we kind of have an excuse. But when satan was still in heaven, there was nobody tempting him. The evil cam…

  • If i'm not too far this the same Gospel that is referred to as The Gospel of Saint Thomas?
  • yea guys...what happened to our good old belief that God will bring us to that person. If you believe in that...why do you need a website. Since the Orthodox Church believes in that, why would they have a site for this? These sites are not run BY…

  • I thought the same thing today, because it said on tv "The plane that carried the Orthodox Pope crashed." It turns out that it was the Roman Orthodox Pope, not ours.
