Orthodoxy is About Christ… NOT Religion

01zl Faces of a Religious Procession

______________________________

Orthodoxy isn’t a religion, but a way of life centred in Jesus Christ. Orthodoxy, as a way of life, has the cure to what ails us and can return us to that state of wholeness that was God’s original intent for mankind. Because Orthodoxy isn’t about religion, it can offer the transformation of the heart that comes with entering into a relationship with our Creator. This transformation begins with repentance, that moment when we decide to return to that pure state of communion with God, for which He created us. When we renounce ourselves, we become a different person through the action of God’s grace. Where we became corrupt because of the fall, repentance returns us to that state for which God created us.
