Who We Are

Vestiges of Christianity is a news blog maintained under the direction of Bishop Bryan D. Ouellette, Ph.D., SOSM. Our goal is to reconcile ancient Christian theology with contemporary orthodox Christian practices and understandings. Our praxis carries with it a strong eastern liturgical focus while maintaining a freedom of spirituality that is true to ancient Christian ideology. We welcome anyone who desires to discover gnosis through the expression of early Christianity. We use the word "gnosis" with the intention to reflect its original meaning of soteriological knowledge, mystical wisdom and spiritual realization. While we encourage a working philosophical comprehension of Classical Gnosticism from antiquity, we are not a Gnostic or reconstructionist church. Our theology is orthodox, our approach, furthermore, is mystically liberating.

Friday, May 26, 2017

at 1:00PM EDT

On this brand new edition of Vestiges of Christianity, Bishop Bryan Ouellette will revisit the authentic metaphysical properties of the subject of reincarnation and explore its compatibility with Christianity. Is reincarnation an erroneous myth spawned out from eastern religion or can it be reconciled with Christian soteriological dependence upon having one life and one life only?

Contemplation of the Johnson Amendment

In 1954, a Republican Congress, along with a Republican president, Dwight D. Eisenhower, passed a piece of legislation that prohibits federally tax-exempt 501(c)(3)'s from participating in a political campaign [either in support of or opposition to any candidate].  In particular, if ministers were to endorse or oppose a candidate from the pulpit, they would put at risk their tax-exempt status.  It would be called the Johnson Amendment and it is still in force to this day.

With the now dramatic shift in political perspective, these old conservative values no longer hold true, as many Republicans want the Johnson Amendment repealed. If they succeed, the line between Church and State will blur.

Is the Amendment a bad thing for Christianity or does it protect Christianity from inching back ever closer into the realm of theocracy? Find out what Bishop Bryan Ouellette and Deacon Thomas Moreland have to say about it on this edition of Vestiges of Christianity.

Women's March and the Evil Within

This past inauguration of the President of the United States spawned protests of various sorts against what is essentially seen by its supporters to be a fight against "conservative values." Women's March was perhaps the most prolific, bringing out thousands of people in dozens of cities across the United States. On the surface, they have claimed that this March represents a protest in favor of human rights, but what is not being recognized is the strong hypocrisy at the root of the movement. 

On this episode of Vestiges of Christianity, Bishop Bryan Ouellette is joined by Deacon Thomas Moreland as they discuss the moral and ethical problems associated with Women's March and everything it apparently stands for. Should Catholics and Christians join in the movement? Or is this activity just another deception of extremist Progressive Liberalism. This and more! Tune in!

Demonology Series: The Four Types of Demons

Bishop Bryan Ouellette discusses the four primary types of "demons" that an exorcist will encounter in his ministry. Contrary to popular belief, not all demons are "Satanic." In fact, in most cases, they will be something entirely different and thus will require a completely different solution for those they are attacking. Find out what they are on the next edition of Vestiges of Christianity.
