A Quote by Saint Dorotheos of Gaza on god, salvation, passions, habits, traps, suffering, evil, hell, delusion, and truth

Believe me, brethren, even if someone has just one passion as a habit, he will be subject to hell.  Even if we do ten good deeds and one bad one, the bad one outweighs the good.  It is like the eagle that is not captured by the snare, but only his claw is caught.  Because of this he is captured and loses all his strength.  Even if his whole body is outside the snare except just his claw can we say he has escaped?  Anytime he so desires, the person who has placed the trap can take him.  It is the same with the soul.  If it has one passion hardened into a habit, the enemy can cast it down anytime he wishes because he controls it through that passion.  It is for this reason that I will always tell you not to allow any passion to become a habit.

     Truth can only be absolute because any of its relativity also includes lie toward the reference systems where it becomes variable.

A Quote by Abbot Nikon on god, christianity, divine, love, courage, sacrifice, virtues, humility, truth, and reality

It is time that you realized that the enemy will not leave alone anyone who desires to be saved.  Consquently, the battle against him will not cease until death.  Futhermore, the evil one can not be conquered through one's own strength.  It was to destroy the works of the devil that Christ came to earth.  Together with those who always call upon Him for help, Christ battles against the devil and against sin.  Man should likewise rise up with all his strength against sin and the devil, using as weapons the means indicated by the Lord, the Apostles and the Holy fathers.  For an Orthodox Christian these weapons are prayer, fasting, soberity and humility.  Without humility, nothing will be of any use, for those who are proud and sure of themselves will not recieve the Lord's help, but inevitably fall into various snares of the devil.
