The Catholic and Orthodox church
The Great Schism of 1054, basically makes it clear the Orthodox church broke from the Catholic church. I kept asking my Orthodox commenters why they support ecumenical relations with Rome but they do not answer and insist there are many differences from Rome. Sure there are some different teachings, but then the ecumenical United Methodists have them too. Surely the ones who read enough of this blog, have been warned of the Pope's wicked interfaith activities, this means their church is joined to the harlot. The Catholic church has sought "full unity" with the Orthodox churches for decades and are growing closer.
Warning: Orthodox video full of the idolatries of Rome and Eastern Orthodoxy but using to show information and the sameness among the 'differences'. There's a different flavor among them both but the main themes of false idolatry, empty actions and rituals, religious displays and elevation of clergy and religious theatre predominate. I had my fill of years of the empty Masses, incense and "processions" where man elevates himself. Notice how those poor deceived Orthodox men kiss the priests. Notice the "enlarged borders" warned against by Jesus in Matt 23:5 on the silken golden outfits of the Orthodox leaders in their processions. I think the giant "X" in the middle of the room is based on the "Cross of Peter". The Catholic Popes put out that upside down one, but "X" is also an occult symbol as well. One sees enough gold in this video to finance feeding endless poor people.
Since I came out of the Catholic church 12 and half years ago, I still have a heart for those trapped in false religion such as I was. They believe the rituals, sacraments will bring them closer to God. They won't, they lead to a false christ. Religious ritual imprison so many into their idea of what is "holy". Religious traditions and sacraments do not save. Religion does not save. Jesus Christ saves and "ye must be born again".
Mark 7:12 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
