The Fifth Meeting with Those in Resistance

The Dialogue between the Church of the G.O.C. of Greece and the Orthodox Ecclesiastical Community of Those in Resistance

Fifth Joint Statement

On Friday June 22/July 5, 2013 in the Monastery of Sts. Cyprian and Justina in Phylē, Attica, the fifth meeting occurred of the committees for dialogue between the Church of the G.O.C. of Greece and the Orthodox Community of Those in Resistance.

All of the designated members of both committees were present.

During the meeting the prehistory, birth and evolution of the modern heresy of Ecumenism was discussed. All of the members contributed constructively to the composition of a chronicle containing the most important levels of the path of the heresy of Ecumenism from its beginning until today. This was judged to be nessesary for the further development of the Dialogue because before we can agree on what must be our position against Ecumenism, we must agree in what this heresy consists. The historical evolution of the heresy of Ecumenism provides us with an objective way of approaching the issue, based on irrefutable historical facts.

The next Joint Meeting will take place on Friday, July 13/26, 2013 in the hall of the church of St. Spyridon in Galatsion.

From the Joint Secretariat of the Committees for Dialogue.

Ecumenical Dialogues Intensified

At the beginning of September (n.s.) Bartholomew called together a “Synaxis of the Patriarchates and the Autocephalous Church of Cyprus" at the Phanar in order to coordinate their efforts for the First Ecumenistic Council which they plan to convene shortly. At it, they will most certainly have to deal with a conflict with the Patriarchate of Moscow concerning primacy, but also they will proclaim the heresy of Ecumenism with an alleged synodal decision of Ecumenical (or rather Ecumenistic) force.
