The Orthodox portal site Serbian True Orthodox (serbiantrueorthodox.blogspot.com) has been witnessing to True Orthodoxy in Serbian web circles for twelve years already, publishing for the first time in the Serbian language texts about the contemporary history of the church concerning the great apostasy and the resistance against it. This apostasy began to develop in the beginning of the 20th century through Sergianism, the New Calendar schism, and the pan-heresy of ecumenism. The response to this apostasy consisted of the holy war against it conducted by zealots of Orthodoxy piety throughout the world. Our portal also published the lives of contemporary confessors of Orthodoxy, theological texts on the same subject, and information about the current events in the True Orthodox Churches and the apostasy of “Orthodox” ecumenists. We hope that the SerbianTO portal has contributed significantly to affirming True Orthodoxy as much as possible in all the Serbian-speaking regions, Serbian lands and the diaspora. In the last few years the work of the SerbianTO editors has been brought down to the minimum, which nonetheless has not effected a notable decrease in the popularity of the website. The SerbianTO has quietly continued to witness to True Orthodoxy with its already-published but always relevant themes. This portal was founded by Bishop Akakije, who was for a long time its main editor, and with whom we have already done two exclusive interviews, one in 2010 when he was a hieromonk, and the next in 2012 as a bishop. Both interviews had an impressive number of views, about 10,000 views each.
Since that last interview, many things have happened in the Orthodox world in Serbia, and thus new questions and new themes arise which will surely be of interest not only to our readers, but to all those who are interested in the fate of Orthodoxy in Serbia, and thus indirectly in the fate of Orthodoxy in the entire world. Therefore we decided, after the passage of eight years, that it is an opportune time to interview His Grace Bishop Akakije of Uteshiteljevo once again.
