“Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them,

and they that are great exercise authority upon them.

But it shall not be so among you:

but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;

And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:

Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto,

but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:25-28, KJV)

The word the Athenians used for their Assembly was Ekklesia, the same word used in the New Testament for Church
(and it is the greatest philological irony in all of Western history that this word,
which connoted equal participation in all deliberation by all members,
came to designate a kind of self-perpetuating, self-protective Spartan gerousia -
which would have seemed patent nonsense to Greek-speaking Christians of New Testament times,
who believed themselves to be equal members of their Assembly.)

Secrets, Lies and CHECKING ACCOUNTS !

When you think that we have heard it all, here comes another BOMB! We know for sometime now that the proistameno of Prophet Elias only has been out of control doing things behind everyone's back. After the secret computer room and the  fake "miracle" here comes a new development. He has control of and is using a secret checking account! Surprised? NOT!  All the trouble he has caused demanding that all funds must be under the control of the parish council.  What is the appointed Parish Council going to do?  Cover him up one more time or ask him to resign A.S.A.P?  I guess the word "decency" is missing from their vocabulary.  After all, they are "serving" him not their community.  What are the other clergy doing about this situation?

Isn't it time for the Metropolitan to remove them and if he will not, isn't it time that the Archdiocese steps in to clean house?

Where did you get this information?
The charges you are making amount to civil and possibly criminal wrong doing? Do you evidence to support this?

Yannis Armaou said...

Jim good question!
Instead of asking me,why don't you ask the parish council and the treasurer?

Jim Sefandonakis said...

and the Parish Council sits in a room scratching their heads wondering why donations are down....

Let's not forget that the audit report was SWEPT UNDER THE RUG!

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
