Linked from your article. I find it interesting. You could literally pick almost every one of these men and women out in a crowd, based on facial features, expression posture, and body type alone. Accuracy would be 80% or better. Add in voice, speech and mannerism, and you're approaching perfect accuracy.

Does modernism express itself physically? Or are certain physical deficits precursors to modernism?

14 people who are subverting the Orthodox Church [Link]

Perhaps this topic deserves its own thread assuming that it will not remain at 14 people.
Especially for beginners it is very dangerous to follow the wrong people.

When will Russian shilling stop? They are not the only Orthodox country in the world, they are not even fully Christian, degeneracy is as rampant as anywhere else. It's laughable putting faith into their (ex-)communist leaders. They are not the saviours of Christianity, not even the Third Rome, they are just a random country that happens to have a big territory and some natural resources and that's it.

What Russian shilling? Which article? I've read a few and haven't seen anything approaching that. I'm don't know how familiar you are with Roosh, but seeing as you're new here, Roosh is a convert into ROCOR, so naturally much of the material that he's been exposed to in the short time he's been there will be tied in with Russian history/ROCOR. You, being a Serb, would be inclined to other parts of Orthodox history. if you have some edifying articles translated to English, I'm sure they'll be accepted here, as I don't think any here are unresponsive to non-Russian forms of Orthodoxy, and if they're truly Orthodox, they'll overlap with each other. My own tagline "Every action strengthens human spirit" is from Abbot Stefan's dialogue in the Serbian epic "The Mountain Wreath" that quotation is delightfully expanded on in the 11th article that Roosh linked.

Let us turn out attention to yet another important law of spiritual life. It consists in “the like interrelationship of virtues and of vices” or, to put it another way, in the strict consequentiality and mutual conditioning of the acquisition of virtues as well as the action of passions. Saint Ignatius writes, “Because of this like relationship, voluntary submission to one good thought leads to the natural submission to another good thought; acquisition of one virtue leads another virtue into the soul which is like unto and inseparable from the first. The reverse is also true: voluntary submission to one sinful thought brings involuntarily submission to another; acquisition of one sinful passion leads another passion related to it into the soul; the voluntary committing of one sin leads to the involuntary fall into another sin born of the first. Evil, as the fathers say, cannot bear to dwell unmarried in the heart” (5:351).

Agreed. This list would have been very useful to clarify things when I first started to look into orthodoxy.

I wonder what others think about the quote from the article included below re: OCA. I have not been looking into orthodoxy long, but when I went to several OCA parishes I found what some of the clergy said was contradictory to what I have learned about Orthodoxy from other sources. For example, that the devil/demons are metaphors and not actual beings, that some of the lives of Saints might have been exaggerated, and that the ecumenical councils are still up for debate. Obviously this wouldn't be the case for every OCA parish, and I am new so I could have maybe misunderstood them but thus far I havent heard anything like that at the other jurisdictions I went to.

"Also interesting is how many of them are members of Orthodox Church in America (OCA) parishes, have graduated from OCA universities, and / or have links to Jesuit universities and organizations."

The article on St Francis is laughable. The many, many miracles and conversions that have occurred at the saint's tomb in Assisi is evidence enough. It is the modernists who think of St Francis as effeminate and deluded. Best.

For what it’s worth, I found this on Reddit. It appears the one above is a colorized version of the original:

“It's not medieval in the slightest, the story is this is Nicholas II blessing the troops with the icon of the Acheiropoieta, a depiction of The Saviour Jesus Christ. The men kneeling are from the 148th 'Her Imperial Highness Grand-Duchess Anastasia Nikolayevna's' Caspian Infantry Regiment and 147th Samara Infantry Regiment as part of the 37th InfantryDivision, they were set to leave for the Russo-Japanese War as this photograph was taken in July 6th 1904, they would take part in the Battle of Shaho.

The men are not kneeling in reverence to the Tsar, they're kneeling in reverence to the Icon depicting Lord Jesus Christ. It is a tradition throughout Russian military history to pray for a blessing before an icon before battle and a general Orthodox thing.”
