TRIUMPH OF ORTHODOXY
He who does not kiss and worship the icon of Christ,
he who does not kiss and venerate the icon of the Theotokos,
he who does not kiss and venerate the icons of the Saints,
let him be anathema*!
*cursed, denounced, excommunicated.
To be against icons, is to be against Christ,
Any teaching condemning the holy icons of Christ, the Theotokos, or the Saints is heretical and those that do not worship the icon of Christ or venerate the icons of the Mother of God and His Saints are heretics!
Christians of the ancient church wouldn't recognize the Christianity of our day. Protestants and all modern Christians by whatever name they are called or with what ever group they are associated, are in no way part of the Church established by Jesus Christ.
The teachings of modern day Christianity are from the demons and the demons delight in the gathering of those whom in ignorance are worshiping God in defiance of the ancient decrees established by the Church Fathers of long ago.
A person can be sincere but misguided, seeking but on the wrong path, faithful but in vain.
Unless you are rooted and planted in the soils of the Orthodox Church, established since antiquity, your faith, your hope and your life will have been lived in vain. Why? Because you are living under an anathema from God decreed and confirmed by the Church Fathers of the 7th Ecumenical Council. With the Lord, a day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as a day. Now is the day of repentance and now is the day, God is calling you back to the one, true, holy, apostolic faith. Amen
