The Orthodox Church is orthodox (And You Will Know the Truth Part 54)

The Orthodox Church is still orthodox, while the Catholic Church has become heterodox. So it is right that the Orthodox Church has considered itself the “Guardian of the Faith.”

The Orthodox Church stays true to Tradition, while Pope Francis has consistently been waging war against Tradition, suppressing the Traditional Latin Mass and insulting those who cling to Tradition as backward.

The Orthodox Church defends age-old Christian teachings, including there being just two sexes, marriage being between a man and a woman, sinners to be welcomed who desire a life of repentance in Christ, rejection of the heresies of the modern world. These are in stark contrast to many modernists in the Catholic Church, including the Pope.

So the Orthodox Church is the bastion against which the gates of Hell will not prevail, while Hell has already infiltrated the Catholic Church.


The Orthodox Church in America steadfastly affirms support for traditional marriage and sexuality

Orthodoxy Christianity has always declared that it must remain faithful to the ancient teachings of the Church and thus is forbidden to add or subtract anything from them. This is why the Orthodox Church has always considered itself the “Guardian of the Faith.” As Church scholar Paul Evdokimov has written: “[T]he unprejudiced observer will one see one consistent principle running right through every detail of Orthodox life: faithfulness to the primitive edition.”

Staying true to its Tradition, the Holy Synod of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA) recently issued a Statement on Same-Sex Relationships and Sexual Identity confirming the Church’s adherence to its perpetual teachings regarding marriage and sexuality. In its defense of marriage as being the union of one man and one woman, the Holy Synod declared:

“The Orthodox Church teaches that the union between a man and a woman in marriage reflects the union between Christ and His Church (Eph. 5). As such, marriage is by this reflection monogamous and heterosexual. Within this marriage, sexual relations between a husband and wife are an expression of their love that has been blessed by God. Such is God’s plan for male and female, created in his image and likeness, from the beginning, and such remains his plan for all time. Any other form of sexual expression is by its nature disordered, and cannot be blessed by the Church in any way, whether directly or indirectly.”
