wow, I look at this old thread from a couple years ago, and relize how immiture I was.  I thought that I could just go to Church and request baptism, which is alot of what is done in most non-Orthodox "churches" today.  I thank you all for your counsel and advice, and for putting up with me.  I am happy to be an Orthodox Christian, and couldn't have done it without all of you!

Hey, don't feel bad, when I come across posts I made when I first joined here I literally can't read them, because I was such a jerk or idiot with what I said (still working on that  Cheesy ). I'm glad you have discerned and found where you are supposed to be, though Smiley

Trevor, I'd like to thank for sharing this. When I first read it it inspired me to pursue Orthodoxy in the real world instead of just doing nothing but reading up online because I was, in my mind, too young.

Glory be to Jesus Christ.

Christ is Risen!

Trevor, never apologize for your willingness to expose your vulnerability or frustrations or possible naivete.

IMHO, it is one of your most admirable qualities and one I could learn and do learn from.

Another admirable quality you possess is that you seem to take advice and try to follow it earnestly and express with honesty the frustrations of following such advice.

You are young and seemingly disciplined and honest in a less than stable environment. No mean feat to manage.

Christ is risen!

Trevor, you are so much further along the spiritual path than I was at your age (and probably a fair way ahead of me even now).

There is nothing more Orthodox and Christian than being ready and willing to confess your challenges and weaknesses, so keep doing it!

thank you all so much.  I say with complete confidence that, without all of you and OC.net, I'd probably wouldn't have converted.  it's through reading and meeting people here on the forum that I've really learned about my faith, and I am deeply in love with my new found faith!!!
