Admitting the Cause of our Problems

Our western society is usually willing to admit to the fact that there are many "problems" : big city violence, rebellious young people, broken families and confused children. But what we normally do is fail to find the real cause of the problem so we can get at an actual solution. Rather, our modern approach to problems is to try to treat the "symptoms"-without ever searching out the genuine cause. For instance, many researchers have found that millions of people living in supposedly deprived areas of the world are often seemingly immune to modern illnesses such as cancer, high blood pressure and diabetes. Entire societies in some of the Pacific islands, people living in the Hunza Valley in Asia and elsewhere very rarely are found to have problems with cancer, diabetes, etc. But when "modern" salesmen and food suppliers come in with ice cream, soft drinks and other "goodies," suddenly the rates of these diseases begin to explode! Think!

Even more central to what is happening right now in the U.S. is the increase in the number of killings in its major cities. Again, why? And why do we keep trying to treat just the "symptoms" rather than the actual cause of these problems in the first place?

To actually "solve" the problem of the growing crime waves in many of the major cities of our nations, we need to look far more closely and with "an open mind" at what our Creator tells us in His inspired Word!

What Our Creator Commands

If you are not willing to listen to what Almighty God tells you, then you may as well stop reading this right now, for there will be no solution to any of man's problems otherwise-crime, broken homes, wars, illicit drugs, you name it.

In His inspired revelation to mankind, our Creator tells us: "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6). Again, God's Word tells us: "Correct your son and he will give you rest; yes, he will give delight to your soul" (Proverbs 29l.17).

Most of you will immediately grasp the fact that in order to "train your son" you must learn to build strong families in your society-families who have a purpose in life and are willing to listen to what God says! Otherwise, all bets are off!

Frankly, my friends, if the professing "Christian" churches of the United States had strongly and consistently taught people about the laws of God-about how vitally important it is for a man and woman to build a strong family, to stay together and to train their children, we would not be seeing the kinds of problems described above in the first place! But as a society, we have failed to take God's Word seriously. We have failed our children, failed ourselves and failed our Creator.

Notice what God told ancient Israel, for we should often remind ourselves of what Almighty God revealed to us in the Ten Commandments: "Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, that your days maybe long, and that it maybe well with you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you. You sha1l not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You sha1l not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. You shall not covet..." (Deuteronomy 5:16-21). He also commanded that these laws and values were to be passed down to our children, from generation to generation, forever (Deuteronomy 6:7).

If this powerful teaching from God's Word were actually carried out in our society, there would be virtually no crime or violence or broken families or any of the other terrible "social problems" we are experiencing. Most of you realize that. But the true God of the Bible seems "far off" to most people. There is "no fear of God" before their eyes. For the professing Christian ministers have utterly failed to make God "real" to people! They have failed to teach His laws and His way of life, even when those ministers were still powerful instruments in guiding the educational and societal norms of our entire nations.

So now we have a confused, misguided liberal media, virtually setting the "standards" for how we ought to act. These Hollywood-type of people are simply in it to entertain and to make money. Most of them have no interest whatsoever in whether or not the society is actually benefited by their "liberal" ideas. It is time for America, Britain and Canada to wake up. It is time for us to learn the real cause of nearly all our societal problems: the constant disregard for and breaking of the Laws of God. For the Laws of God are like the law of gravity! You do not have to intervene and "make it work." The law of gravity automatically operates whether man believes in it or not. All of us need to realize that God's spiritual law, the Ten Commandments, operates the same way. For God's laws are real, and they would be the ultimate answer to mankind problems if they were truly taught and obeyed.

America at the Crossroads

I hope that all with open minds in the United States as well as Canada, Britain, Australia and the other English-speaking nations will be willing to consider what the Creator told our forefathers. In fact, His words should be heeded by all nations. God stated prophetically and powerfully, "Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God: Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country" (Deuteronomy 28:1-3). Later, God warned, "But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country... The Lord will send on you cursing confusion, and rebuke in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, because of the wickedness of your  doings in which you have forsaken Me" (lv. 15-20).

Frankly, our formerly professing "Christian" nations are at a major turning point in their entire history! We either turn to the ways of God and make ourselves willing to obey the inspired laws and statutes of God, or these terrible curses will come upon us, and we will be cursed and you will be cursed "in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly" (v. 20).

The national confusion, chaos and utter destruction prophesied in these verses has already begun to happen, bit by bit, at a slow but steadily increasing rate. May God help you, my friends, to understand and to act before it is too late! If you truly wish to have God's protection and blessing in the months and years just ahead, and to have God's blessing and guidance, follow The Ten Commandments and pray with a sincere heart!

But we post it because it provides another side of the proverbial story.  The Church, after all, is supposed to be a temple for sick souls (sinners) without distinction between their worse sins or otherwise, but it seems to some organizations that they say much about others, but fail and refuse to upbraid themselves and their members for their own sins...)


"Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."


- Blessed St. John Maximovitch of Shanghai and San Francisco

The purpose for presenting this Daily News section:

Daily News is very important to those who are true Orthodox Catholic Christians.  For without knowing or gaining information for understanding about what is happening in one's local area and around the world, you could  find yourself faced with denied services in the secular area, lack of income, even (although it sounds far-fetched) ability to worship openly for the time is not far off when all will have to decide if they wish to follow the Anti-Christ through the One World Church and One World Government as prophesied by the Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation of St. John or follow the faith delivered once and for all which will cause for many to be denied the abilities to survive under those kind of conditions, causing for one to consider other options. 


Many of those who subscribe to, and some who have caused or are the cause for, these things to happen are involved in or with the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church (which is not the seat of all things "Catholic") as well as its protestant daughters such as the cultic Jehovah's Witnesses, the Pentecostal Churches, the Church of Latter Day Saints also known as the Mormon Church and far too many more to list. 


Yet, at this web site we do provide some of the reasons about why they are opined to be the harbingers of that which is prophesied in Holy Scripture for the bringing about of the End Times which we have already entered.  It is not necessarily their individual members or parishioners that should be blamed since they are only the "Sheep" and not the Shepherds... So do not think we castigate individual people of themselves as we castigate those "money changers" who Jesus Christ chased out of His Father's House as the Bible Describes; for they exist in these present times too.


Events are already rushing toward that time in which this is beginning to happen and will become more fully wide-spread. In these present times all you need to really do is look around both your local and larger areas as to what is really on-going through.  Things so very little or miniscule that they are barely noticeable except to the more informed observer may become apparent. 

Those little things are the laws of the land, economics, politics, the degrading and erosion of those rights and liberties afforded by the Constitution of these United States of America and many other things such as the manner with which entertainments have taken over much of the populace, entering into and becoming a major focus in worship, and more. 

We ask you, if you don't want to believe us... Have you heard, seen or found what is termed (of the many terms being used) that there are "holding areas" or "camps" or "Closed/Fenced communities" being built by GOVERNMENT? 

Here in North America, especially in the United States of America, we must admit that what Russia has come out of (a communistic, atheist country) we are entering into.  And one last thing that needs also to be understood... Something very important to those of you who are "Catholic" in the Roman sense of its jurisdiction....   And, we believe this also holds true for many who are "Orthodox" whether "Eastern" or "Western"....

[ * Non-Denominational = Synchrestic Ecumenism, Disease of Scholasticism, altering the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ to accommodate the disease of Political Correctness and CULTIC PROTESTANTISM, and the Roman Jurisdiction (Latin Church = Vatican) of the Catholic Church) breaking of - or failure and refusal to respect and abide by  - the ancient Seven Ecumenical "Do Not" Canons which leaves everything else open to God's gift of creativity... failure & refusal to abide by and have respect for those who diligently protect one of the other Pillars of the Church, the Seals of the Confessional, but "Non-Denominational" also includes worshiping Satan's religion of Muslim, Islam by praying with them and other heretics such as 'Pentecostalism,' 'Jehovah's Witnesses,' 'Mormons,' 'Church of Christ,' any so-called church with "Community Church" in their nomenclature and others who by their false and misleading dogmas and doctrines are actually against the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ upon whom and for exacting reason we are called "Christian" in both spirit and truth from which non-denominational protestant sectarian claimants have departed from as being so-called Christian] Only a skilled spiritual father can help you!

Remember: You cannot ride two horses or serve two masters for one of them will be harmed by your thoughts, your very words and your actions which is to blaspheme the Holy Ghost (Spirit) who will depart from you.  And when the Holy Spirit departs, the great deceiver (unbeknownst to you) will rush in to fill the void under disguise of being the Holy Spirit!  Testing of the Holy Spirit to insure it is the Holy Spirit does not, for many a Sectarian Protestant and Roman, work because the Great Deceiver (Satan) is most skilled in worming and snaking his charms around your mind and heart to feign being the Holy Spirit.  Remember, Satan has the same gifts similar to the Holy Spirit but Satan's gifts are UN-HOLY and lead all who accept him (unbeknownst to you) to perdition.
