I am an Orthodox Christian priest. I have been Orthodox my entire life and a priest since July 2007. From my perspective, in America at least, we have lost the functional understanding of our Orthodox Christian Faith. We must take seriously that our Traditions have purpose and are not a just a litany of tasks and obligations we must perform. To "boil down" the Faith to that creates an environment I believe is what the Apostle Paul taught against. Glory to God.
In a world with more than 43,000 denominations of Christianity, it is ever more crucial that we learn to discern the truth among the many partial truths spoken in the name of Jesus Christ. The Orthodox Christian Church, loyal to the truth as taught by the Holy Apostles, has been the caretaker of the wholeness of the truth for more than 2,000 years. Jesus Christ said, “He who hears you hears Me.” When we hear the voice of the Church, we hear Jesus Christ. If you truly desire to live united to God, then put your trust in the Church.
