The Immoderate and Self-Absorbed Anti-Old Calendarist Zeal of the Innovative New Calendarists: A Brief Critique of Five Unfortunate Texts by Father G. Kalpouzos, Father B. Bakogiannis, D. Kokores, A. Korakides, and the Christian League of Kalamata

by Archimandrite Cyprian Agiokyprianites

“A pious clergyman belonging to the innovationist New Calendar Church, the well-known Father Georgios A. Kalpouzos, in his recent book dedicated to the Holy Mystery of Repentance and Confession, commits a very serious blunder. [...]In enumerating the ‘Transgressions of the First Commandment,’ he places the following confession in the mouth of the penitent: ‘I have been led astray by the teachings of schismatics and heretics: Roman Catholics, Uniates, Millenarians [Chiliasts—Trans.], Protestants, Evangelicals, Pentecostalists, Old Calendarists, et al.’ [...]In other words, Father Georgios regards both Western Christianity, which has fallen away from Orthodoxy in a number of different ways, and ‘Old Calendarism’ as supposedly equivalent sins, inevitably leading one out of communion with the living and true God! In the first place, we believe, the following question is worth asking: ‘Why on earth are Old Calendarists included among dangerous groups that purportedly lead people into schisms and heresies, while there is no mention of innovators and modernists, pro-unionists and Papophiles, ecumenists and syncretists, or advocates of inter-Christian and interfaith dialogue?’”
