Seems like even Origen has more friends (still working on my petition to the EP to rehabilitate my homie).

You could make a second graph related to how many people quote Blessed Fr. Seraphim Rose on the subject and those who quote whoever that other guy that really opposes him is.
Forgive me.

Fr. Gregory Jensen said...

I mention Augustine a fair amount. What juices the hit is the R word. You know who I mean, yeah, admit. It ain't the bishop of Hippo it's Romandies. Betcha someone's got a automated serach running right this minute and soon, oh so very soon, you will oodles of flaming hits!

I speak, sadly, from recent experience. ;)

Fr. Gregory, I almost H/T'd your blog for the inspiration for the Orthograph but I didn't want to feed the flames. :) ...and yes, Job, you are correct (perhaps even super-correct) that the common denominator between Blessed Seraphim and Blessed Romanides and ummmm... "bless their hearts" ... is Blessed Augustine.

Blessed Augustine is the only thing keeping me from becoming Orthodox. I love the Orthodox Church in every way – but with one hangup. My Western anthropology is cemented in original sin & guilt, dead in trespasses and sins as it were. I simply can't get over this threshold - yet! :)

s-p said...

oruaseht, The OC believes in sin, death and guilt... it all depends on the order in which you put sin, guilt and death. :)

Fr. Gregory Jensen said...

Let me add, that we believe in sin, death and guilt but we have not dogmatized the order.

oruaseht said...

My faith tradition (Lutheranism) chooses Romans 5:12 to set the "order" for sin/death/guilt - contrasted with 1 Corinthians 15:56 which shows a different view (I heard about this in some mostly sane guy's podcast once and it blew my mind...) ;)

Pay no attention to that guy behind the microphone! :)

So it's the Orthodox version of Godwin's Law? LOL! :) So true!

s-p said...

LOL! Perfect!... "reductio ad augustinium" (or ad seraphim or ad romanidum, reader's choice).
