It has become very popular to make up your own religion by accepting one belief and rejecting another, or following one practice but inventing a new individual custom to follow. There is a better way. For centuries holy men and women, righteous figures of the Old and New Testament, have been following a way of life established by God, and they “were well attested for their faith.” (Hebrews 11.39) The way of life Christ has given His Church, the Orthodox Way of Life, has been tried and tested, defended and perfected, for centuries, so we could receive this Holy Tradition today. This is the faith of the Orthodox that is celebrated on the Sunday of Orthodoxy. God became man, so that man could be united to God. This is the truth the Church has defended in Holy Icons and our way of life. And that belief has consequences. Do you believe? Then follow the Church. Do you want to follow Christ? Then follow the way of life He has already given to us in His Church. You don’t have to make it up.
