For the edification of our readers we are posting the “Confession
of Faith Against Ecumenism” which many of us have signed along with thousands of others of
various church rank.
The document does not as yet have official endorsement. Had we been invited to participate in composing the document it is possible that we might have altered some of its
expressions. However we are in full agreement in its essential points and
overall direction. A failure to properly define the boundaries of the Church
has serious ramifications for our pastoral work and the spiritual life of the
flock. We hope that this and similar documents will elevate and clarify the
awareness of believers of what it exactly means to be an Orthodox Christian.
