. Teaching Temptation
. <The general rule for all men is that they do not trust the spirits when they would be a sensible way, do not enter into conversation with them, do not pay any attention to them, to recognize the phenomenon of the greatest and most dangerous temptation
. During this temptation should fasten the mind and heart to God in prayer for pardon and for deliverance from temptation. The desire to see spirits, curiosity to learn something about them and from them is a sign of great desperation and complete ignorance of the moral and active devotion to the Orthodox Church. Knowledge spirits purchased quite differently somehow implies an inexperienced and unwary tester. Open communication with the spirits for the inexperienced is the greatest evil, or is the source of the greatest evils>. (Ignatius, Bishop. (Bryanchaninov). Word of the death. M., 1991. P.56).
