I can not throw rocks since I was in a similar dilema. Comming to US and seeing the amount of work Protestantism does with poor i did think God is in Protestantism and I reasoned if God is in Protestantism what am I doing in Orthodoxy.
However for conversion I was not sure which one of 30 000 or I don't know how many denominations is best, so I was not sure where is the truth. You can not believe in the same time that babies can be baptised , and can not be baptised as truth. You have to decide. You can not believe in the same time that Saturday is rest day and Sunday is error and at the same time believe that Sunday is the rest day and Saturday is not.
So I had trouble discerning THE TRUTH. So I prayed to God. And a tought came saying, Eastern orthodox Church is best path to salvation and this is why I am sending Holy Light there. So I knew at that moment where the truth is and I did not convert anymore.
The falacy I did was not knowing the value of Sacraments that would give a place in heaven and give back eternal life and that I was looking for visible signs instead of looking for important thing.
Jesus is SAVIOR because he brought the sacraments. Is not that before Jesus people did not do feeding the poor. They did. Is not that people did not have wisdom before that. Have you read Solomon, Ecleziste? They had wisdom. OHoooo, read Solomon and see trucks of wisdom. Oceans of wisdom. That was not enough .
JESUS IS SAVIOR BECAUSE HE OPEN THE PATH TO HEAVEN THROUGH BAPTISM.
St John Chrysostom says, that BEFORE JESUS HEAVEN WAS CLOSED FOR 5000 YEARS.
Was Heaven closed because Isaiah did not feed the poor. Because King David was not righteous and because King solomon was not wise? NO. BECAUSE BAPTISM DID NOT EXIST. BECAUSE THE SAVIOR DID NOT COME. When Church name Jesus as Savior , is because Jesus is savior from Hell and DEATHHHHHH.
Yes God is what it matters and taking the valid sacraments too. Any time that challanges appear , pray to God to find a solution for you and to give you what you miss, like fellowship and others.
Is it wise to renounce DIAMOND sacraments for felowship, good work and good books and wisdom? NO.
Is it wise to trade entrance to Heaven and Eternal Life for felowship, good work and good books and wisdom? NO.
MAY GOD FORBID US FROM DOING THIS AND PROTECT US FROM DOING THIS. FROM LOSING BEST SACRAMENTS IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.
Please think again. One King would give sacks of gold for ONE HOUR OF LIFE. What can you put that could equal ETERNAL LIFE given to you by HOly COmmunion?
One King would give sacks of gold for several hours of eternal life. Protestantism renounced hours, days, years, tens, hundreds,infinite number of years for his people and how evil is this and helping the poor would make Protestantism right?
