Eastern Orthodoxy, The Mystical Trap by Richard Bennett (Free PDF)

Richard Bennett on the Puritan Hard Drive

In recent years interest in the Eastern Orthodox Church among Christians has grown steadily and there have been a number of converts to this religious body. A prime reason for this interest has been the growing fascination with mysticism and ancient tradition which has permeated Western societies. Increasing numbers of Christians are coming into contact with Eastern Orthodox mysticism via the Emergent Church and the writings of the Orthodox 'Church Fathers'. There are many strands to Eastern Orthodox mysticism; this paper briefly examines a few significant areas such as Theosis, Hesychasm, the 'Jesus Prayer', Spiritual Fathers and Light Mysticism.

Eastern Orthodoxy, The Mystical Trap by Richard Bennett (Free PDF)

"I read your Eastern Orthodoxy Mystical Trap, and I liked (it) and agree with all you've written there. The Greek Orthodox here in Albania has big activity here and they're just like you've described in your essay. Your essay is very informative. Thanks and God bless you!" - SermonAudio comment from Albania

Dr. Voddie Baucham on the Puritan Hard Drive

While there is plenty of useful material on Romanism at SermonAudio (not to mention www.vatican.va), there is very little on its Eastern Orthodox rival, and this paper is a useful introduction to some of its tenets and practices. Given the current Western hostility to "head knowledge," propositional logic and theology, I expect Eastern Orthodoxy's anti-intellectual mysticism to grow in popularity today, should it gain wider exposure. I cannot help pointing out that such mysticism cannot even begin to be understood without using propositions and language, which makes it self-refuting! - SermonAudio comment from the USA

Richard Bennett, Berean Beacon

The Puritan Hard Drive has been such a superb blessing to me personally and for my ministry, that I lack words to adequately praise the Lord!

The immense heritage of Puritan and Biblical pastors, leaders, and teachers is given to us in a single source on the Puritan Hard Drive. Right here at your fingertips are the works of such men as John Wycliffe, John Huss, Martin Luther, William Tyndale, John Calvin, Thomas Cranmer, John Bunyan, John Owen, Matthew Poole, George Whitefield, Charles Spurgeon, J. C. Ryle, and on and on until you reach the great Biblical scholars of the present century.

More than standing on the shoulders of these illustrious men, you have their thoughts in written and audio format. In our own times, we have their writings to read, their videos to see, and their messages to hear, on the Puritan Hard Drive.

Let the words of the Psalmist be our heart's cry, "Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart."

May we deeply profit from the Lord's heritage given to us on the Puritan Hard Drive, "to the praise of the glory of his grace."
