Marital Unity Changed by the Original Sin… ?!!

Dr. Meshreky [Fr. Macarius] claiming the 'conflict' between the unity in marriage and the unity with God:

"Before the fall, this unity of the two partners as a husband and wife did not separate them from God because each of them was in a state of being united with God. This was the original picture and plan. After the fall, each partner started to seek the other partner because s/he feels lacking and that something essential is missing – because s/he is estranged from God. After the person receives the faith in Christ, s/he still seeks the visible other because s/he is not able to be fully united with God. This seeking of a visible other became an instinct and a deeply rooted thing in humanity. This is because Man became unable to fully find and unite with the unseen other, God, whom Man is called to unite with. This full unity with God is a walk which requires time and discernment of the steps of this walk. Therefore, an inner emptiness remains inside Man which seeks and needs the visible other." Book: 'THE BRIDE & THE END TIMES' Page 163-164

No wonder the cult advises against marriage!

  1. But the Bible says:
    • "And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”" Genesis 2:18 before the fall.
    • "And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh." Genesis 2:23-24 before the fall.
    • "He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the Lord." Proverbs 18:22
    • "And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”" Matthew 19:4-6
    • "But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”" Mark 10:6-9
  2. Discouraging marriage is one of Dr. Meshreky's cult similarities to Montanism heretical movement or sect https://www.britannica.com/topic/Montanism and http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/10521a.htm
  3. It runs against Apostolic Canon 51 (see also http://www.newadvent.org/fathers/3820.htm), and the Canons of the Council of Gangra.

St. Paul desired Church kept safe for only 4 centuries?!

From Dr. Meshreky's book "Responsibility for the Generation":

"

Responsibility toward the generation

Apostle Paul entreats his beloved disciple Timothy and speaks of the end times in 2 Timothy 2: 2, And the things that you heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

These words highlight the fact that apostle Paul desired the spiritual deposits to be kept and preserved for up to four generations. In this verse, the four generations are Paul, from Paul to Timothy, from Timothy to the faithful men, and finally, the faithful men to the others who were taught by them. Why did Paul have this preoccupation with the generations? It was because he understood the value of the spiritual deposits. He was given many revelations, and he knew that these revelations would keep the Church of God safe from divisions. If these revelations disappeared from the Church for one reason or another, divisions and problems would begin to appear in the Church.

Acts 20: 29-30 29 For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.

From the first century, during Paul’s own life, he could see in the spirit, the wolves that would come and do harm to the flock and speak perverse things. He understood that the only way to keep the Church safe was to keep the spiritual treasures and revelations safe. He knew that his life was coming to an end, so he turned to his faithful disciple Timothy. Entreating him to take care of these words, and all the revelations that he had heard from Paul, and to live them out; not only living out the truths for himself, but also passing them on to the faithful, those who knew that they were receiving treasures and those who would take on the responsibility for these treasures. And in turn, the faithful would pass it along to others, so that as long as the treasures were passed on, the Church would be safe.

It is interesting that Paul was thinking of four generations. During that time, a generation implied a century. This means that Paul was thinking ahead to four centuries in order to keep the Church safe from divisions. If you study the history of the Church, it is amazing to find that the Church was actually kept safe from discord and united up until the 4th century. Divisions occurred after that, because the treasures and revelations began to be mingled with the world and its philosophies. The purity of the Spirit was no longer there.

In this very moment, you are receiving treasures. They are not my treasures, they are treasures that I received from the Lord and I am passing them on to you. Therefore, we must be treasure keepers, and must pass it on to those who are faithful. If you are willing to do this, you will then be entrusted by God, and will be anointed to minister to this generation. This is our responsibility - to be “treasure keepers.” May God enable us to be truly faithful and pass it along to other faithful people.

Meshreky, Atef (2016-01-12). Responsibility for the Generation (Kindle Locations 1163-1186). Anchor Publishing & Media. Kindle Edition.

That misinterpretation serves the purpose that all Apostolic Churches are dead, hence the need for the 'new anointed' to establish the 'new' Church! Dr. Meshreky throughout the lengthy writings does not provide even a single 'early father' nor 'early church' supporting reference.

It is a clear contradiction to the Book of Revelation, which prophesies the presence of the Lord and His care for His Churches, the journey all the way to the end times, and warns against adding or taking away from it.

How do you see the contradictions in Dr. Meshreky's misinterpretation?

The ‘Inner Man’

The book describes the 'Inner man':

  • "it is not a spirit"
  • "is exactly like the outer man; having parallel members: eyes, ears, hands, legs, and so on."
  • "It begins in the form of a seed, in our spirit."
  • If stunted in growth, "it can be seen as a face without eyes, a face and neck without hands, a face and neck without an abdomen, or missing any of the parts or members."
  • If it had "fully grown" can be seen "with the same contour" of the person, "shining and the glory of Christ filling this inner man."
  • "the 'inner man' is 'Christ in me'"

Is there any reference in the Bible or the 'early fathers' to deformed 'inner man' or 'Christ in me'?

What are the references for the 'anatomical' parallelism with physical body? And the proper process of growth?
