Synods who have abandoned True Orthodoxy

Postby Maria » Fri 6 March 2015 4:59 am

Questionable Synods

Autonomous True Orthodox Metropolis of Italy and Western Europe
(Archbishop Onofrius, Metropolitan of Bergamo, formerly of the Synod of Milan)
http://octavianrodna.ro/

Western Orthodox Church of Civitas Classis (Archbishop Volodymir, formerly of the Synod of Milan)
http://mediolanum.me/


Dissolved Synods:

Synod of Milan under Archbishop Evloghios - apparently this Synod has dissolved as of Dec. 2013


Synods that are no longer part of True Orthodox:

As all five synods listed below now endorse the Name-Worshiping heresy, none are considered part of True Orthodoxy.
See http://onimyaslavie.blogspot.com/ for more information on the Name-Worshiping Heresy.

    1. GOC - AB Makarios has entered into communion with HOCNA of Brookline, MA.

    2. HOCNA of Brookline, MA is associated with Name-Worshipers (aka Name-Glorifiers)

    3. True Orthodox Church of Georgia is in communion with HOCNA of Brookline.

    4. ROCiE - Russian Orthodox Church under Met Damascene now endorses "Name-Worshiping."

    5. True Orthodox Church of Russia or TOC-R - Met. Rafael now endorses "Name-Worshiping"and has broken communion wih the GOC Metropolia of North and South America and the British Isles under Met. John of New York.

Regarding the socalled "Metropolis of Italy" I could be agree with You that the status is questionable but the behaviour of Archbishop Volodymir of St. Julius and Classis why do you think has abbandoned the True Orthodoxy?

Reading these posts reminds me of the Gospel reading for today ( June 9/May 27)

Matthew 7:15-21

"Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits..." The Holy Fathers warn that many may speak the faith, but we need to keep our eyes open to see what they do.

This is not just a matter of showing to be Orthodox. What God wants from us is to live for Him. And if we live for Him, it will show. But, those liars that say they are living for Him will eventually be exposed by their own behaviour.

If we are living for God then we will recognize who is lying about their faith.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. (Ps. 50)

I have a synod to this list of those who have abandoned True Orthodox and fallen for the Name-Worshiping (Name-Glorifying) Heresy:

    Met. Rafael of Russia

http://ipckatakomb.ru/?s=news&newsgroup=2&nid=1711
Заслушав письма Блаженнейшего Митрополита Ангела по вопросу о прекращении канонического общения с Автономной Православной Митрополией Северной и Южной Америки и Британских островов и ее Предстоятелем митрополитом Иоанном (Ло Бю), поддержать позицию греческих братьев, осудив неприемлемые высказывания Митрополита Иоанна о православном исповедании Имени Божия и прекратить с ним каноническое общение


Translation and modification of Google Translate :

Commenting on the letter of Metropolitan Angelos on the termination of canonical communion with the Autonomous Orthodox Archdiocese of North and South America and the British Isles and its Primate Metropolitan John (Lo Bue), supporting the position of the Greek brethren under Angelos, condemning the unacceptable statements of Metropolitan John on the Orthodox confession of the Name of God, and ending communion with Met. John's jurisdiction.


http://www.portal-credo.ru/site/?act=english&id=596
At a meeting on July 13, 2015, the Council of Bishops of the True Orthodox Church under the presidency of Metropolitan Raphael (Motovilov) resolved to break communion with the American Synod under Metropolitan John (LoBue), "Portal-Credo.Ru" reports.

In the minutes of the meeting of the Council of Bishops (in Russian) it is stated: “Having heard the letter of His Beatitude, Metropolitan Angelos, on the question of terminating canonical communion with the Autonomous Orthodox Metropolia of North and South America and the British Isles and its Primate, Metropolitan John (LoBue), to support the position of the Greek brethren in condemning the unacceptable statements of Metropolitan John regarding the Orthodox confession of the Name of God and to break canonical communion with him”. The results of the vote were a unanimous ‘for.’

In January 2015, the Synod of the GOC(R) issued a statement in response to the “anathema against the name-worshipping heresy” of the Synod of Metropolitan John (LoBue), with the following appeal: “We suggest that you think again, reconsider, and make an intelligent decision. Otherwise, we will be compelled to initiate the procedure of an official cessation of inter-Church communion with you and the Autonomous Metropolia headed by you!”

The Synod of Metropolitan John (LoBue) is the only ecclesial group that has anathematized the Orthodox doctrine of the Name of God. None of the True Orthodox Synods in modern Russia have issued any condemnation of this teaching, and some of them have expressed open support of Name-Glorifying, the Orthodox doctrine that God’s Divine Energies are present in His Name and the uncreated divine energies are themselves names of God.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.

I actually emailed Met. John asking about this synod. he said the following.

Dear Sir,

Metropolitan Onufrios has been in communion with our Synod since 2011. Metropolitan Angelos and Metropolitan Seraphim were in communion with our Synod from 2011 until July 2014, when the issue of imysalvie (name worship) caused a breach in that relationship. With the return to the rejection of that teaching, their relationship with Our Synod has now been restored. The choice of Metropolitan Onufrie not to participate in this latter relation is an option that Metropolitan Onufrie has chosen to exercise and it does not disturb the relationship with our Synod.

(His Beatitude,) Metropolitan John
First Hierarch of the Holy Synod


Since it's been verified by Met. John himself, I think it should be added to the Complete True Orthodox Listing thread.

I'd also like to add that on the latest NFTU article, which talks about the latest reunification of TOC synods, Deacon Joseph Suaiden starts off by writing the following:

Over the past year, discussion were held between the Bishops of the Autonomous Orthodox Metropolia and the Churches of Metropolitan Anghelos of Avlona and Metropolitan Seraphim over the question of acceptance of the heresy of Imyaslavie. Satisfied with the reversal of the Greek and Russian positions, communion was restored, with the approval of the sister Synod of Metropolitan Onufrie of Bergamo.

I would personally say this is enough proof that this synod should be listed as a True Orthodox Church.

I will edit the list of the True Traditional Genuine Orthodox during this coming week.
