No Condemnation

"There is now therefore no condemnation for 
those who love God and are called according to His purpose."

For the many who are beginning to see the truth of the apostasy of the World Orthodox Jurisdictions, but still remain afraid to leave. Here is the permission and encouragement you might need:

"...But as for those who...severe themselves from communion with their president, that is, because he publicly preaches heresy and with bared head teaches it in the Church, such persons are not only not subject to canonical penalty..., but are worthy of due honor among the Orthodox. For not bishops, but false bishops and false teachers have they condemned, and they have not fragmented the Church's unity with schism, but from schisms and divisions have they earnestly sought to deliver the Church. (Canon XV of the First-Second Council of Constantinople)"
