First, I'd just like to thank everyone who shared their opinion, and provided some corrective criticism. Below is my response to each of you:
Aposphet - Thanks for your kind words and encouragement.
tuesdayschild - I agree that I could easily send a correspondence that just states that I am resigning from the church. But, I feel, and I could be wrong, that I would be missing an opportunity to share what I have learned. By sending my pastor a general letter without a detailed explanation I feel as though assumptions would be made; maybe he won't care at all. Yet, I feel a need to share, in a respectful manner, why I am looking to the ancient Church for guidance because it still exists (an idea that is not fully shared by my pastor from what I can tell from his teachings).
dcommini - I appreciate your input, like with everyone on here, it is nice to know that people care enough to assist me on my journey.
scamandrius - Your point is well taken and one that I considered greatly and to a point I am still considering. I tried my best to word the letter in a way that does not point the finger at my pastor like saying "you preach..." "you say..." When referencing Protestant teachings (that my pastor adheres to), I did my best to put it in terms of my experiences with those teachings, and how they lead me away from truths. I will definitely take another read over the letter to make sure that what I am saying is what I found to be true, but in a way that doesn't point the finger. I agree that no reason needs to be given, but if we stay silent about the situation, I feel, that I would be at fault to a degree for not sharing what I know by speaking the truth in love.
deusveritasest and Alveus Lacuna - bear with me friends, I am still a novice of Orthodoxy and will definitely research viewpoints that are Non-Chalcedonian and Nestorian. I did some preliminary research of the Nestorians and from what I gathered it appears that they have a different view of Christ than that of the universal Church and were labeled heretics and therefore there was a schism prior to 1054. Before, sending my letter I will clarify this point and maybe warn my pastor that I am viewing the Church from a Chalcedonian view but that there are others.
SolEX01 - I agree there are a cloud of witnesses that have already paved the way. However, it seems that my church is unaware, like I was, of the Orthodox faith because we have grown up in Western churches all our lives. I didn't know that the Orthodox Church existed until someone told me about it, and explained it to me. It wasn't a matter that I researched because I felt that I was under the right understanding as a Protestant. It was only after being presented with some thought-provoking evidence that I thought, "Well, maybe there is something to this crusty, old, faith called Orthodoxy..."
NicholasMyra - Your right about the title. I don't think I'm going to title the letter, but I am going to change it on my web site to read A "Christian" Fantasy Exposed
David Garner - Wow, thanks for taking the time to fully explain your opinion. I agree with you 110% I am hesitant to call my pastor because I am not very good in speaking. I am much more focused, clear, and concise when I write. Thanks for sharing your experience and your blog (which I plan on reading for some insight). I do not want my letter to come off as argumentative or that I'm judging the church I am leaving. Most certainly there are good things there and I will point those out in my letter. Hopefully, and maybe I did not do a good enough job of this, I'm trying to put explain my leaving in a way that focuses on my experience with the Protestant faith as a whole, and not specifically with my pastor's church. Your absolutely right, I do not want to polarize the situation to extremes; therefore, I will consider those topics in the letter to see how to re-write them or if they are even needed at all.
Saint Iaint - True, but I think that would be a little too harsh - see what I had to say to NicholasMyra
