Are you an Orthodox Christian?
Please comment if you are.
So jaid, did you pick it or were you born into it?
Eastern Orthodox? Greek Orthodox? Russian Orthodox? No. But orthodox in the literal sense of the word - holding correct Biblical Christian doctrine? ABSOLUTELY. I am, however, open to reading more about the distinctives of your faith, brother. :o)
I am Russian Orthodox, which is basically a subdivision of Eastern Orthodoxy, but Greek and Russian Orthodoxy are entirely the same in doctrine; there may be differences in translations, tradition, and leaders, but they're the same spiritually.
Likewise with tlaney1. My dad has brought me to a few Sunday meetings of Russian, Albanian, and Greek Orthodox, but they didn't quite resonate with me that much. The doctrine appears to be fine, but I just don't consider myself "Orthodox" per se.
Jaid - I should be in your church choir! I love singing Tchesnokov, Arkhangelsky, and other Russian church music. I am a low bass, and in college I could sing low B regularly. I still have a strong D and passable C. I sing mostly opera.
We'd love to have you.
I think he's atheist now.
Agnostic atheist, I guess, but yeah
