Hi.

I decided to leave the forum, not for anything bad happened here or that there is anything wrong in the forum. Actually I met very nice people, talked to them. I found so much help here and had a nice time.

But because I finally found a Church that I can follow and be a member of, I need to focus on that, and therefor I need to stay away from any websites, books and discussions that may cause me to question my decision and start all over again. Not that I don't trust my decision, but because I'm still new, I need some time to strengthen my faith, plus I'm only human, and sometimes the continuing of arguing over and over and over will effect me one way or another, and because the Church I follow is not Eastern Orthodox, it is not a good idea to keep posting here and reading threads and arguing.

Thank you so much for the nice time I had with you guys, and the help I found.

May God bless each one of you.

Godspeed to you.

If, however, you have given up on Orthodoxy in order to explore the Anglican Church, I fear you will be deeply disappointed (I say that as a former Anglican who was very active in my London parishes). I love much about the Anglican Church, but unfortunately it is no church at all. For the Early Church was united, as the Fathers attest, yet the Anglican Church is riven by divisions. Their "three legged stool" of Scripture, reason and tradition is not only a thoroughly erroneous epistemology compared to the Apostolic faith, but also is the main cause of disunion in the Anglican communion, since each pastor gets to decide which of the three legs will support the bulk of his parish's weight.

I wish you well in any case.

+1.  In a few months, he'll be searching again for another church to satisfy his own interpretations.  Maybe we'll see advertisements for a  Raylight Church in a few years.
