Orthodox Fake History A - Z
Orthodox Fake History A - Z .
If you make up just one fake story it gets refuted, so the Catholic and Orthodox have literally faked tens of thousands so called "historical facts" by making up an utter avalanche of old wives tales, fables, myths and traditions, so many it confuses the Orthodox believers into thinking there is a lot of "evidence" to support their church as "the real one".
Lucy (Saint) - pulled out her own eyeballs for Jesus. A very persistent suitor kept admiring her, saying her eyes were very beautiful, so Saint Lucy, like a true saint of God, did the right thing and pulled her eyeballs out and sent them to her suitor, who then lost interest. Pulling her eyeballs out made her a saint. However God rewarded her with a new pair of eyes, and that is why the holy relic of her body still has eyes in it.
If you do not like this history do not worry there are plenty of other history facts to choose from as presented by the Orthodox and Catholics. San Geremia is home to the body of Saint Lucy (pseudo died circa 304) and they sell candles in the shape of two eyes, to make plenty of cash out of this "history". Orthodox Feast Day - 13th December.
Onesimus - a name cynically lifted by the Orthodox and Catholics from the Epistle of Philemon, and made into a bishop by them (when there is evidence no such ministry existed). Fake history. They did this as they need to fake a lot of extra bishops to link up their false claims in their Apostolic Succession heresy theory.
By the same "tradition" he was turned into a bishop he also just happened to believe Orthodox Doctrine (but by Catholic tradition believed Catholic doctrine).
Stachys the Apostle - a name cynically lifted from Romans 16:9 and made this time into an Apostle, who was also made a bishop. There is zero evidence this man was either an Apostle or a Bishop, like Onesimus Stachys is being used to falsely enroot or create a list of bogus bishops, to link forward to the sacerdotalism heretics who dominated Europe later on.
By the same "tradition" he was turned into an Apostle and bishop he also just happened to believe Orthodox Doctrine (but by Catholic tradition believed Catholic doctrine).
Saint Veronica (also Berenice) is known as the woman who wiped Christ's face as He carried His cross towards Golgotha (found nowhere in scripture - fake history) and as the woman whom Christ cured of the issue of blood (another cynical lifting of a character from the bible to make myths about a fake relic), who is also traditionally identified as Herod the Great's niece (bogus historical "fact"). The Orthodox Church celebrates her feast day on July 12.
