It is noteworthy that although the honorable skull of John the Forerunner is in the possession of an Arian archimandrite, it nonetheless works wonders. It is not prevented. And it is possible that there are extreme cases of exploitation, as has happened. The archimandrite, for instance, has attempted to strengthen his erroneous beliefs based on the conviction he had that the honorable skull has worked wonders because his faith is the correct one. After he realized that that was not the case, I wonder if he changed his thinking. If one falls into delusion… We might think that arguments and proofs are needed for one to discover the truth. But that is not the way it is. The important thing is what happens within the soul of a person. If one has inside him the inclination to delusion, he will be deluded. Nothing takes him away from that, from delusion. And if he has the inclination, sincere and honorable, that no matter what happens, he wants to find Christ, he will find Him.
