His Beatitude Metropolitan of Kyiv and all Ukraine Onufry
Only a life according to the commandments of God leads man to spiritual development, said the Primate of the UOC.
His Beatitude Metropolitan of Kyiv and all Ukraine Onufry urged the congregation to the fulfillment of the Divine commandments and living according to the gospel, according to Information-enlightenment Department of the UOC.
“These days the so-called progressive people often laugh at those who live according to the laws of God. In reality, however, is only progressive Christianity, because the Divine law leads to progress” – said the Patriarch during his Sunday sermon in Chernivtsi.
He explained that the commandments of God “leads a person to spiritual development and to true happiness”.
“And what is often called progress – the only way is restriction, to self-destruction and to a gradual death,” said Metropolitan Christopher.
As reported by PWC, informed the Primate stressed that living the gospel makes man’s faith in knowledge: faith is a property of human nature, and all people have faith. While not all faith makes sense, he said.
