Father Epiphanios Theodoropoulos
Once he was asked:
«Elder, it is known that peace reigns only ί n the soul of people of God. However, the Evangelicals also maintain that they feel a permanent calmness ί n their hearts. How is it possible for this to occur, since they are ί n delusion?
And he responded:
«In the villages, my child, when the villagers wish to tie their donkey for grazing, it is not necessary to tie it by all four feet. It suffices to tie it by one.
The devil does the same thing with the Evangelicals. Since he has tied them by the foot of heresy, he does not attack them with other temptations. Thus, it is explained why they feel peace, as they maintain. However, this peace is superficial and temporal.
