Redding's Saint George Greek Orthodox Church - Hypocrisy




In Redding the storm of fellow human hatred intensifies, created by the dark dynamics of those presumed to be in control, and ignored by those presumed to be in spiritual authority.

As I walked into Redding's Saint George Greek Orthodox Church, two signs hung above the door.



One an Orthodox cross, another a No Trespassing Sign, which was suggested I am  told by Redding  Police Chief Rob Paoletti.  What message does this send to the non believer ? What message does this send to the multitudes of homeless that take refuge in from cold and rain at the doors of this church? Sacramento California church's rotate days and take multitudes of homeless and shelter them in the doorways of their sanctuary, why cant you? Are we not instructed to "uphold the poor?" What does Gods Holy Word say about cowards?

They don't make it to Heaven.......






Infallibility



So after listening to the service , the priest told everyone that was going on the Platina Monastery tour that they MUST take the old windy DANGEROUS  road. When one fellow asked if he could take Red Bluff up the much safer Hy way 36 route he was admonished !!

"You Americans want to be free to do your own thing, no obedience, your not like the Greeks!"

"Remember we talked about that?"

 "See me shaking my finger at you"  the old priest said... 

The man said he would not disobey!!!


Pope shakes a finger at Sandinista leader Ernesto Cardenal in Nicaragua



The infallibility of the pope and now what I call newly demonstrated infallibility of pastoral flesh is nothing new. Many many children have fallen into that satanic trap, using such so called "holy" pastoral authority to justify inappropriate vile sexual molestations.


Hypocrisy

noun
noun: hypocrisy; plural noun: hypocrisies
  1. the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform; pretense.
    synonyms:dissimulation, false virtue, cant, posturing, affectation, speciousness, empty talk, insincerity, falseness, deceit, dishonesty, mendacity, pretense, duplicity


If one could know and look into the heart of this old priest would we see that since the odds of any languishing , suffering homeless being Greek outside his church doors, or in Library park are non existent and could this perhaps be why we see the disregard of Christ's commands and the hell with them all?

"Has God called a fast, that we should hide from our own flesh" at the Greek Orthodox church?

We know how our Lord Jesus Christ feels about how you do it to the 'Least of these My brethren you do it to Me" and "Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith."

No Trespassing indeed....... Perhaps the Holy Spirit sees that sign as well.......

  2. The orthodox church is not affiliated with the Catholic church or the Pope. Also, trespassing would indicate being somewhere when you shouldn't. Anyone can go to a service. Last time I was there we were threatened by homeless people outside the church and businesses near by had windows broken out. The main philosophy of the orthodox church is that we ALL need to change ourselves for the better, not go around trying to fix other people. So if a homeless person were interested in orthodoxy they'd be welcome. Otherwise, what do the homeless or anyone, want with the place?
