Many thanks to all those who sponsor and support the Mystagogy Resource Center; your positive feedback and generosity through financial gifts have been encouraging. Without this support, I would not be able to devote the time I need to produce all that you will see moving forward. Since I am now working by the hour and my time is more limited, I need to figure things out how to best use my time for your benefit, and will then give a progress report some time in the spring. Till then, I encourage all those who do not yet financially support this ministry - yet find some benefit from it - to likewise do so in order that it may continue to be helpful to you and countless others. See links at the bottom of this page to submit your contribution.

Does Reason Prevent People From Believing in God?

By Elder Epiphanios Theodoropoulos

Sin is what prevents us from believing in God, not reason. For this reason, if you tell an atheist to live six months according to the ethics of the Gospel, and they do it, they will become a believer without knowing it.

"I don't believe in God" is usually said by vicious and immoral people. There has not been found nor will there be found a person who is moral, chaste, virtuous, etc. and is able to say with ease: "There is no God!"
