Syncretism: the Fallen House of Division

by Petros Theodoros Presbeftes

Syncretism is defined as "the combination of different forms of belief or practice" (Miriam-Webster English Dictionary). The temptation of many theologians of the present day is to bury the differences expressed by opposite and contrasting theologies and attempt to tolerate the practice of these conflicting dogmas within the confines of one unit of worship. This situation, however, is a formula for disaster such as to make the sinking of the Titanic pale in the shadow of this colossal disaster of monumental theological proportions. If the Blessed Saint John Chrysostom were permitted to lift a pen to say something to the assembled company, it would be, "I tell you and I witness before you, that to tear assunder the Church means nothing less, than to fall into heresy. The Church is the house of the Heavenly Father, One Body and One Spirit."

The only way to cure the effects of heresy is to cling to the universal mind of the Body of Christ and hold steadfast to the Wisdom of the Holy Spirit of God. All Godly persons should and must shun the "expert" "leaders" of the false Christian Empire, and adopt a steadfast allegience to the true Head of the True Christian Empire, Who is none other than the Undivided Son and Word of God, our Lord Jesus Christ.

It is time to call an end to the false Christian Empire. It is time to declare its spiritual bankruptcy and to usher in the eternal era of the glorious Christian Empire which rules the world with agape and truth and guards all of us from every force of the evil one. The gateway to an end of heresy is the Sacrament of Holy Baptism and Holy Chrism and Holy Communion to ensure that each person is illumined by the genuine Holy Spirit of God and is a True Member of the One, Holy, Universal, and Apostolic Body of Christ.
