Because there's no such thing as a jenkim in Greek.  That's the way it is supposed to be pronounced.  Same thing at the very beginning.  There is no "eXristos", it's just "Xristos".
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

"Der Voghormya" (Lord have mercy) sung on April 24 at the ruins of an Armenian church in Diyarbakir:

Diyarbakir used to be called Dikranagert, and it's where my grandmother's family came from.

Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.
