The spiritual world is not approached by methods we use to explore the mundane world. These methods are completely unsuitable for exploring the spiritual world. There are phenomena that science will never be able to explain for not using the proper methods.
Can science tell us how the great prophet Isaiah foretold the most important events of His life 700 years before the birth of Christ?
Can science explain to us the saints’ insightful grace and tell us by what natural methods did the Saints get this grace and how could they immediately understand their inner thoughts and feelings as soon as they saw a stranger?
Without expecting a question from the visitor, they gave an answer to what seemed to be their concern. Let them explain to us how the saints foretold the great historical events that in time took place exactly as they had prophesied. […]
Do not be offended when you hear them talk against our faith. Since those who speak badly of our faith do not understand its essence.
You should always remember the essential principle that the early Christians knew very well. They considered that the one who knew too much and does not know God is unhappy.
On the contrary, the one who knows God is blessed, even though that knew absolutely nothing about mundane things.
You should keep this truth in your heart as the greatest treasure. You should follow your path no matter what.
We should never lose our orientation no matter what they babble about our religion. Keep your faith for it is true and eternal Amen.
Saint Luke, Bishop of Simferopol and Crimea
