I, my Christians, read both about priests and about impious people and about atheists and about heretics; I investigated the depths of wisdom. All faiths are false, fake; all are of the devil…Only the faith of the pious and Orthodox Christians is good and holy… St Kosmas Aitolos



Be glad and rejoice that you were granted to be pious Orthodox Christians. Likewise again cry and mourn for the impious and unbelievers who walk in darkness, in the hands of the devil. St Kosmas Aitolos

...There is one religion only, the Orthodox Christian Religion. And this spirit the orthodox one is the true one. The other spirits, are spirits of delusion and the teachings are mixed up. Elder Porphyrios +1991

*...The truth is in Orthodoxy...There are many lights, which (man) sees and is impressed, but one is the true light...It is worth it for one to worship the only true God, our Lord Jesus Christ...The truths of God, as He has said, from the beginning, are these. There do not exist new other truths, because the people and science progressed and people went to the stars!... Elder Porphyrios +1991

Only the Religion of Christ unites and all of us must pray that they come to this. Thus union will occur, not by believing that all of us are the same thing and that all religions are the same. They are not the same...our Orthodoxy is not related to other religions. Elder Porphyrios

What is the essence of Orthodoxy? It is the God-man Christ. Everything that is Orthodox has a divine-human character: knowledge, the senses, the will, the mind, morality, dogma, philosophy, and life. Divine humanity is the only category in which all the manifestations of Orthodoxy are received and fully operate. In all creation, God occupies the first place, man the second. God leads while man is led; God acts and man cooperates. God does not act transcendentally. He is not the abstract God of deism, but rather the God of the most immediate historic reality, the God of revelation, the God who became man and lived within the categories of our human existence while appearing everywhere as absolute holiness, goodness, wisdom, justice and truth. St. Justin Popovich, Orthodox Faith and Life in Christ
