Atheistic education in contemporary Greece
Education in contemporary Greece is actually atheistic. Just a while ago, I was told by a mother that she received a document from the school to let her child visit an orthodox, a so-called Roman Catholic, and later on a protestant church. In those churches there would be things explained by a guide not only regarding the place, but, I suppose, probably also regarding the dogmas, the faith etc. Beware! Our orthodox children!… our elementary school children are the ones invited to visit those churches. How sad… this invitation and prompting is being addressed to our children by this very Greek state. Unbelievable!
Do you know what’s behind all this?
The mission is to convert our class of orthodox religion into a class teaching about religions. Huge difference!
They suggest that Orthodoxy is one of a kind with the other heretic denominations or pagan religions. They claim that Orthodox are all the same in spirit and rituals with the Buddhists, Hindu, Protestants, and Roman Catholics etc.!
They say, “It is the same thing; chose as you please…we will show you everything (to facilitate your decision).”
And, we should keep in mind: there are Holy Canons of our Church which do not allow for Christians to deal with heretic dogmas in any case! It is forbidden!
Someone could stress that the children will not necessarily deal with the dogmas; they will simply visit a place of worship. Yes, but whose worship?
A demonic worship is the worship inside the “sacred” places of heretic dogmas. We know they are heretics. Why should we ever go there? Why should we ever send our orthodox children there, especially the little ones, and get “contaminated” by those activities? If they were university students and wanted to see these places from a scientific point of view, they could go, but not the little ones.
The educational system claims “They have to learn…”
What is it they will finally learn? One is for sure: They will become spiritually blind. And this, because they have not learnt all they need about their faith and have not built a solid orthodox foundation, yet. That’s why they shouldn’t. At the end, if they do visit these altars of Satan, they will, unfortunately, become even more confused inside their soul! Parents, beware!
Do you see what’s going on? The ruling systems are trying to disable Orthodoxy and induce severe damage to Hesychasm, by introducing Ecumenism and New Age (with claims of unity “love” and “peace”).
