While the historic Holy and Great Council of the Orthodox Church, which took place in Crete this past June, sought to bridge the gap between Orthodox and non-Orthodox churches, it seems to have created a divide within the Orthodox Church itself.
Its interesting to see the same effects of a “unity under any circumstances” erroneous ecumenism happening in the Orthodox Church as we’ve seen in the Catholic Church after Vatican II regarding ecumenical relations with the Protestant communities.
We hope for unity but must stand firm in truth. A unity of lies isn’t true unity. I think it becomes apparent what is really happening and if the Spirit is really involved by looking at the reaction of the leaders when things begin to go wrong. It looks like a man thing and not a God thing to me.
