Ethical Commitments

Our current Age is full of both spiritual opportunities and dangers, we are living in a chaotic time where loosing one's soul is not only considered Normal and 'Cool' but also virtuous. The struggle against such temptations is both real and hard.

As Men especially, no previous time in history was loaded with so much worldly effort to enslave us to our passions and lead us into sin of heart, mind and body.

 

While sin and temptation always did exist, at no point in history did we have such technology in our pockets that can bombard us with temptations with such force. In our current age staying a Christian is extremely difficult, soon staying even human will be difficult also.

As brothers in Christ, our aim will be in forming personal friendships with one another so we can support each other in our ethical struggles.

Narrow is a path to our Lord, we all need help walking it.

Each men must struggle against his temptation, most of us already have battle scars from our struggles with temptations, no one will be judged for what happened in the past, but upon joining the brotherhood every man must commit himself to the following ethical standards, No one is perfect, and where we fall, we must seek help for improvement.
