"But there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than
that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed" (Gal. 1, 7-8).

In our end-of-times period the once Christian society, which no longer wishes to have him "who now letteth" (2 Thess. 2,7) [157],
and which does not protect itself any more, and has permitted those who "trouble" us and "would pervert the Gospel of Christ" to multiply excessively and to assume power.

The prophecy of the Apostle that "in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be... having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof" (2 Tim. 3, 1-5).
Before our own eyes mankind is increasingly failing to understand why the Scriptures are called sacred, and that it is "given by inspiration of God" (2 Tim. 3,16) and "is not after man" (Gal. 1, 11);
it is generally losing the concepts of Sacredness and Truth, being contaminated with the false teaching of universal relativity. This explains the frivolous and impudent disregard of the stern words of the Apostle Paul:
"As we said before, so say I now again: if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed" (Gal. 1,9).

The mission of both the Old and the New Testament Church had always been, and still remains, to guard and to preach the inviolate divinely revealed faith and God's promises, the Holy Scriptures and Tradition. Well known is the particular care with which the text of the Scripture was guarded in the Old Testament times, when every biblical manuscript which was damaged, or contained mistakes, was subject to destruction, when no one having some speech defect could even be admitted to reading from Scriptures aloud in public.

The ancient Church translation of the Old Testament Books into Greek (the so called Septuagint) was accomplished in the 3rd century B.C. by the specially appointed and God-chosen men, and it was done with all possible precautions and reverence, and under the direct protective guidance of the Heavenly Church, as is testified particularly by a well-known episode with St.Simeon's translation of the Book of Prophet Isaiah containing the text of Messianic prophecy about the Savior of the world to be born of the Virgin (Is. 7,14).

redundent...............why?

I say,'''''Walk while you have the light,lest darkness overtake you,'''sais the Lord......[John 12:35 ]

Eventually there will remain darkness..........[to remain in the dark ,to be without knowing........

''''''The fool has said in his heart, 'There is no God' ''''''''[Psalm 14:1 ]


'''''Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons''''' [Timothy 4:1 ]

If man is not immotal, if there is no truth, then there can be no salvation.
A society in denial becomes a society in despair.
And if man has lost even the inclination'' to be saved and to come to the Knowledge of the truth''''[Timothy 2:4 ],
What purpose does earthly life serve?
Indeed, it has forfeited its justification for existence, claimedArchimandrite Constantiine:'''If the sole basis on which the New Testament world exists[is rejected] ----that is, if humanity has ceased to accept for its own benefit the world saving sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ----then, to a Christian awareness, the immediate trend of such a world toward its end is axiomatic(truth, accepted)From this point of view, then , it is possible to say that each year which elapses brings us noticeably closer to the Last Judgement.
It shows a progressive paralysis of the human will to be saved.'''

the above words are from..................
'''Ultimate Things''' an orthodox prospective on the end times........
