um.... can I ask how could it be wrong??? they arent blood related and all a " godmother" is is someone who promises to be a spiritual guide to you while growing up, at least that was what I was taught to believe.

Can I ask on what you base this to be wrong?

My advice is stop sticking your nose into other people's business when that business brings them a lot of happiness and nobody else any pain.

"Is it a sin", pshaw.

You want to put your nose into their business, you said as much in your post "I don't know what to tell him".
So don't lie.

Haven't other people's opinions influenced you in being a Greek Orthodox?

No CyberGhost, i don't think its a sin, think about how many related people in the Bible married each other .. sisters and brothers did it all the time. A God parent is only a name, not blood. I don't see anything wrong with it at all. It's their choice anyways, it's their life. If they're happy i would leave it alone.

Cyber....all you can do is tell him what you believe and be a friend.......
In the end it is up to your friend to decide what needs to done......
Prayer is good on your behalf for your friend and if the frienship is worth more, then it might be better for you not to interfere but say a prayer..........Im assuming you are Christian.....
take care...

CyberGhost, I'm Christian and I have never heard that before. I also did a quick check into some theology resources and found nothing. I can't see why it would be a sin. It's not incest or anything.

Helen670, I could be wrong, could you show me a verse?

Dany you said.....quote//Haven't other people's opinions influenced you in being a Greek Orthodox?

No they have NOT!!!

Both of my parents were Greek Orthodox......but as far as knowing about The Orthodox that I do know now....they absolutely did not have any influence in that....In fact, I thought that because I was brought up by Greek Parents...all Greeks were Orthodox,Or Italians were Roman Catholic....Just like my Husband is...

I was willing to become Roman Catholic if they could answer my many questions on why is the Roman Catholic church the truth.....but the answers they gave did not fit in with the truth........The early Christian Church was ONE and all of them had the same teachings of the Apostles that were handed down by Jesus Christ.....
The Orthodox Church(old calander) never changed scripture or 'diluted'(watered down) any teachings ......they are the same as what they were 2,000 yrs ago......Who needs MODERNISM......

well....... from reading all that I see nothing wrong with this relationship here. He isnt dating his GODMOTHER........ he has feeling for his godmothers DAUGHTER........

bit of a difference and therefore from what you've posted I see no problem.

Anyone else agree here?

*raises hand*

Totally nothing wrong with him getting it on with his Godmothers daughter...pretty sure there were some rather dodgy 'relationships' mentioned in the Bible itself...so lets not get all judgemental on a bit of lovin'...

mulberryblueshimmer.......I DONT make the rules!
They are canons of the Church.....and If I remember the question asked.......the answer I gave is what the Churches stance on the issue is what is written......

The answer as above...... Godparents with godchildren or godparents with parents of godchildren..

It's not what we want or may want .....Im just stating here what is not allowed by the Church.......As people.....YES,WE CAN MAKE NEW laws and rules for whatever it is we wish ......and its not a VOTING thing......on who agrees and who does not........each to his own , I guess....
helen......

The place of the Godparent is to raise the child in a rightous manner and consider it as one of her/his own child,to become a Christian and to be within the Church.. .....therefore the child becomes spiritualy (as in babtism .Chrismation)related in Christ as Christ was to the children of Jacob.......not blood related.

Helen....... where am I missing your point?

You said

I am STILL not getting how a 17 year old dating his GODMOTHERS DAUGHTER violates what you've written.

he isnt dating his godmother herself. Nor is the godmother dating the 17 year olds parents..........

and so the problem is............?
