I would suggest that you read thru the thread. It isn't fair to try and get the cliff notes version ;)

what is the "Morey Refutation Project" subforum for?

Something I and a few others on the board were working on some years ago. Right now it's just me working on it:
http://orthodox-apologetics.blogspot.com/2009/12/yes-eastern-orthodoxy-is-christian_05.html (Yes, Eastern Orthodoxy is Christian!)

It might take me a couple more years! I have to update some of the information. Some of the answers are a bit simplistic. I know a bit more now and so I am able to give better answers in some areas.

I would like to add some of what Steven Bigham (I think he is a priest, but I forgot.....please forgive me if he really is) had to say in his book:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/097456186X?ie=UTF8&tag=piousfabric-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=097456186X (Early Christian Attitudes Toward Images)

I also need to read up more on Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus and how various Christian traditions utilized them. I know a little, but I'm not satisfied with what I know at the moment. There are a few more things in other areas I need to brush up on as well. But yeah, I should be finished with it in a couple years or so.

Right now I only critiqued 3 chapters of the book. Morey has 6 chapters and so I still need to finish the last 3. I want to be as accurate as possible and so it's gonna take some time.

"loving one's enemies does not mean loving wickedness, ungodliness, adultery, or theft. Rather, it means loving the theif, the ungodly, and the adulterer." Clement of Alexandria 195 A.D.

The answers can be found in this thread:

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
