What is the Spiritual Life, Jordanville, New York, 1962, pp 247-8 (in
Russian); English edition, St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood, Platina,
Calif., 1995, p. 282. Fr. Eusebius Stephanou (Logos, Jan., 1972, p. 13)
attempts to justify the present-day "reception of the Holy Spirit"
outside the Church by citing the account of the household of Cornelius the
Centurion (Acts 10), which received the Holy Spirit before Baptism. But
the difference in the two cases is crucial: the reception of the Holy
Spirit by Cornelius and his household was the sign that they should be
joined to the Church by Baptism, whereas contemporary Pentecostals by
their experience are only confirmed in their delusion that there is no one
saving Church of Christ.

experience, of virtually every manifestation of mediumism, magic, sorcery,
etc., that is found in the Holy Scriptures and the Orthodox Lives of
Saints - the source of all of which, of course, is the devil. On only a
few points will the Orthodox reader have to correct his interpretations.
