Caveman (CM) is the owner of a blog
The Catacomb Chronicles
He was new to Orthodoxy, unbaptized, interested in the western rite, and he is Nathan's friend.  He stopped blogging June 2013.  Posts before December 2012 were deleted.

Nathan is an Orthodox Charismatic who lives under the delusion that he is a Prophet of God.  He started out in the Antiochian jurisdiction, then went to the GOC, and next to the ROCOR (not ROCOR-MP).  The last service Nathan attended in ROCOR was to come a month after this exchange below.  He was starting to show signs of there being trouble.

Matthew is apparently somebody who has known Nathan long enough to know his travels.  Probably Antiochian, is my guess because Antiochians think that GOC and ROCOR are wacko jurisdictions.

Thanks CM. I am not half as oppressed as you say. No time for that. Just trying to stay on the path. Gets a little rugged at times.

So which wacko jurisdiction has Nathan fled to now? Has he started his own yet? If he does, only his immediate family will be allowed and he's not sure about most of them.
In another 5 years he will proclaim himself Pope/Patriarch of the Whole World and abolish all religion and proclaim Atheism the True Faith.
That's usually how these stories end.
The last true believer. Been there done that.

Matthew M, I am sorry you have proclaimed atheism the true faith. Come back to Christ and he will receive you with loving arms. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Where did Matthew say he was an atheist?  Nowhere.  He said he experienced the "last true believer" syndrome – not atheism.  He is predicting Nathan will become an atheist.  It's clear enough to me.  Not a far-fetched prediction, since worship of self is one form of atheism.

Nathan's comment is pure psychopathic form.   Punishment.  Passive-aggressive.  Arrogance.  Twisting the other person's words.  And, Nathan can deny any wrong doing, – if he gets called on it, he can pretend he misunderstood.  

He didn't fool me, though.
