Those Orthodox churches (Greece, OCA, etc.) which simply chrismate Catholic converts do not see the earlier sacrament itself as bearing grace or "validity", correct? They just see the "form" or "style" of the baptism as valid, but that the chrism fills the "empty form" with grace without performing another baptism?
Sorry to pester, I am just having some inner turmoil about being "re-baptized" for the 3rd time, it just seems to violate the Creed, and I am sick of baptisms (infant and teenager Trinitarian baptisms have been performed on me). It just feels so wrong to do the form again, but I don't want to leave my bishop out of insubordination either... I just feel a bit lost on this issue. What's the right thing to do?
