2nd ordeal - lies

Orthodoxy believes that the second test of the soul in the afterlife is the passage of the ordeal of lies. A person will have to answer for all the untruths. In a conversation on this topicOleg StenyaevHe pays special attention to the problem of confession in front of a priest with whom a person maintains friendly relations.

 

 

All ordeals are somehow interconnected with each other, although outwardly this may not be noticeable.

What is fraught with friendship with the spiritual father?

The second ordeal is the ordeal of lies. Every untruth, non-fulfillment of the vows given to God, the suppression of sins at confession, gossip, denunciations.


It is especially sad when people conceal their sins at confession. These laymen are friends with priests. Rev. Elder Seraphim of Sarov said:Do not be friends with the priests. It is very important to look at the priest as a priest..


The Gospel says: Accept the prophet in the name of the prophet, you will receive the reward of the prophet. Accept the righteous in the name of the righteous, you will receive the reward of the righteous. And if you accept a person, here he is interesting to you, he is pleasant to you, you know what you can talk with him about, you make good friends with him - this is another form of relationship.


And when a Christian believes that he is on friendly terms with a priest and goes to confession to him, he is suddenly afraid that if he names his sins, then these friendly relations will collapse. The priest will begin to look at him with different eyes:You're so terrible!. But in reality it is not.

Confession is not a place to lie

I think that every priest will agree with me that if we hear very serious confessions at confession, we can always appreciate such trust.

 

lie and repentance


This really indicates that a person becomes like the judgment of God, and the priest on the contrary will pay great attention and diligence to such a person. For "the doctor treats the sick, not the healthy."


It is said in the first epistle of John: ".

Avoid extremes

Confession and lie - the apostle and theologian John put these concepts together. Why? Because at confession there are two extremes.
A person, for example, comes and says:


- I am a sinner.


- in what?


The man answers:


- In all.
When I find myself in such a situation, I immediately ask:
- Slaughtered someone?
- No, that you, father!
Then the subject conversation begins.
Or another extreme. A man comes and says:
- I am not a sinner (I have not sinned).
Then I say:
- Why did you come to church? We have everything for the remission of sins: at our confession, sins are released, with our assembly, forgotten sins are removed, we receive communion for the remission of sins and eternal life. You probably don’t need to go here.

The man says:
- Well, I'm probably not completely sinful.
And the conversation begins.
Extremes, of course, must be avoided.
- Teaches the holy apostle and evangelist John the Theologian.
