Lessons from St Mark’s Washington DC Pentecostal Infiltration

“We see that it is best during the coming period to merge all small groups, bible study, discipleship & spiritual guidance. It is better that these groups to be held in church and everyone is invited to participate and to grow to the fullness & perfection of the lord Jesus Christ as one body.”
- H.G. Bishop Karas, General Bishop and Patriarchal Exarch of the Archdiocese of North America, https://tcopt.wordpress.com/2016/01/18/letter-from-h-g-bishop-karas/

This also underlines the danger of using Protestant materials for spirituality even if one claims to “exercise discernment”:
“I met Fr. Seraphim [the heretic Atef Aziz] for the first time in the fall of 2011 and I found him to be a very humble and holy man with great background of the teaching and life of the early fathers, as well as unbelievable depth in the bible. His sermons are all online, among all other Christian sermons, from which we choose what holds true in our Orthodox faith. And in this case, I never found anything deviating one degree from the teaching of the church and the early fathers. All things that I taught were things that helped me personally and that which I believed would be beneficial for the congregation, even if that material was said by Fr. Seraphim.”
