Passage of Laurus

Archbishop Laurus, who was (until his death) the head of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, has passed from life to death. I did not know the man, nor whether he had faith in Christ alone for salvation. May God bless the flock he left behind, with greater knowledge of the truth, and with salvation if they are trusting in something other than Christ alone for salvation. (link)

    Is “I did not know the man, nor whether he had faith in Christ alone for salvation” you standard eulogy for when a Christian dies you did not know?

  2. Turretinfan Says:

    I simply do not know whether he was a Christian. Since he professed faith in Christ, I have some modicum of hope.

  3. orthodox Says:

    Will you give the same eulogy when the chairman of the presbyterian presbytery dies?

  4. Turretinfan Says:

    Orthodox,It would depend on the situation.We know men by their fruits.I hold Reformed ministers (whether or not they hold any administrative position in presbytery) to a much higher standard. By God’s grace, their lives testify to their faith.-Turretinfan
