The Church of Patristic Tradition: Statement on the Supposed “Anti-Patristic” Nature of Our Ecclesiology of Resistance; A Response to the Orthodox Christian Information Center Website

Hieromonk Patapios with Archbishop Chrysostomos and Bishop Auxentios

“Our responses to Father Basil quite adequately demonstrate that our ecclesiology of resistance, first articulated by Metropolitan Cyprian, is not an abstract ideology, but is drawn from years of study and circumspect deliberation, attempting to work within the spirit of the law and not according to some contrived notion of administrative order; to theologize from the ‘mind of the Fathers’; and to draw from the action of the Holy Spirit within history. We did not set out to formulate a theory of resistance, but drew from the Fathers precepts and guidelines that led us to that resistance. This kind of spiritual inquiry is diametrically opposed to the efforts of those who seek to exonerate an ideology or direction (or one’s change in ideology or direction) by post-factum justifications of a priori assumptions and opinions spawned by the pursuit of comfort or ambition, rather than a commitment to a posteriori principles that reflect obedience to the experience and ethos of the Church.”
