99) Graded churches

In real terms the Orthodox Church splits churches into about 10 kind, with various attitudes to where the word "church" should be replaced by cult or sect, when in reality they are entirely a cult in themselves.

1)   Grade A quality - Patriarchal Church (eg Constantinople)

2)   Grade B quality - Autocephalous Church  (Gr. "appointing its own leader") (eg Mount Athos) a church whose head bishop does not report to any higher-ranking bishop.

3)   Grade C quality - Autonomous Church (Gr. "self-rule"). (eg Finland) governed by its prelate, who is chosen by a superior jurisdiction, usually by a patriarchate.


It appears to me both types of churches often claim to be self governed, but as autocephalous churches appoint their own head, and autonomous do not, the true higher ranking church would be logically autocephalous, within the perimeters of their own unbiblical extraneous criteria?

4)   Grade D quality - Eparchy Churches non self-governing (eg. Philippines) 

5)   Grade E quality - Unrecognized Churches (eg Orthodox Church in America) 

6)   Grade F quality - Schismatic churches - (eg. Roman Catholic - to some)

7)   Grade G quality - Schismatic isolationist churches

8)   Grade H quality - Heretic churches - (eg Roman Catholic - to others)

9)   Grade  I quality - Heretic isolationist churches -

10) Grade J quality -  Lunatic fringe Orthodox cults .  ( church ) 

The Orthodox Church in America

           a Puppet of Russia.

Post-reconciliation schism:

Critics of the reunification argue that "the hierarchy in Moscow still has not properly addressed the issue of KGB infiltration of the church hierarchy during the Soviet period."

( so.... you are potentially confessing

your sins to the KGB / FSB or FSS in America,

as Russian rules over the USA church jurisdiction in Orthodoxy!!)

Founded in 1794 — Granted Autocephaly in 1970 by Russia  -  denied autocephaly by the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
