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.

Among his most effective snares are heresy and schism which, by separating Christians from the Church, lead them away from Christ and into spiritual deception and apostasy. Read more...
