"No one man, or group of men, can himself speak for the Church of Christ. It is nonetheless possible to speak from within the Church, in conformity with Orthodox tradition; and it is this that we shall attempt to do." Fr. Seraphim Rose Orthodox Word #1 Jan-Feb 1965 p. 17

To those who attack the Church of Christ by teaching that the Lord's Church is divided into so-called "branches" which differ in doctrine and way of life, or that the Church does not exist visibly, but will be formed in the future when all "branches" of sects or denomination, and even religions, will be united into one body, and who do not distinguish the priesthood and mysteries of the Church from those of the heretics, but say that the baptism and eucharist of heretics is effectual for salvation; therefore, to those who knowingly have communion with these aforementioned heretics or who advocate, disseminate, or defend their new heresy of Ecumenism under the pretext of brotherly love or the supposed unification of separated Christians: Anathema.

To those who call the theomachist antichrist authority blessed by God rather than permitted; to those who dare to enslave the holy Church to this authority for the sake of holding on to the external ecclesiastical organization; to those who, in order to please the secular authorities, trample upon God’s commandments, the holy canons, the patristic traditions and the Church’s catholicity; to those who renounce the martyrs and confessors of Christ, who raise up blasphemy against their struggle and who betray them into the hands of tormentors; to those who justify this Judas-like way of thinking and acting and who even say that by a special wisdom the salvation of the Church comes about; to those who prepare the seduction of honoring antichrist as a God-given leader; to the Segianists, to the new renovationists – anathema! 

ANATHEMA! (on them). And let all cry out three timesANATHEMA!  ANATHEMA!  ANATHEMA!
