The Orthodox Survival Course By Father Seraphim Rose

The Orthodox Survival Course By Father Seraphim Rose

The Orthodox Survival Course is a series of lectures by Father Seraphim Rose which you can obtain in video or text format (DOCX | MOBI). The title may be a misnomer because what it provides is a history of the world that explains our modern times. I liken this work as a companion to The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit by Catholic intellectual Dr. E. Michael Jones’. They both provide an alternate history that explains the nature of the modern world better than institutionally-supported historians and “experts.” This pairing is not to be expected when you consider that many of Father Seraphim’s critiques are levied directly against the Catholic Church at the time of the Schism. Nonetheless, I see The Orthodox Survival Course as valuable to all Christians—Catholics included—who seek salvation.

I argue that the current dominating ideology of technocracy, a form of “modern gnosticism,” is incompatible with Christianity, since it sees the cosmos not as a divine order but a man-made system created by a will to power to dominate man and nature…

Gnostic Scientism and Technocratic Totalitarianism

Archimandrite Aimilianos explains that technology is not inherently bad: “Technology per se is not, of course, harmful, being the fruit of the reasoning and intellect of Man, who was formed in the image of God. But when, unrestrained and unbridled, it rushes headlong towards its destination, then it becomes Luciferous, though not bearing light but rather pitch darkness. The danger for us is the absence of accountability in the way in which technology is administered and exploited, a way which has as its aim the stifling domination of human life and the solution of problems by technical means, regardless of moral and metaphysical principles.”
Science, as applied knowledge, requires certain goals to be…
