I've never been to TAW, so I don't know :)  I think oc.net is the bees knees though.

I think TAW is very good for inquirers to Orthodoxy but this site is a lot more academic and really challenges you to think about what you believe and why. I left TAW after being harassed by another poster for over a year, but I find this site to be more intellectual and more interesting than TAW.

What's a TAW?
"Funny," said Lancelot, "how the people who can't pray say that prayers are not answered, however much the people who can pray say they are."  TH White

Oh, no: I've succumbed to Hyperdoxy!

I think it's The Ancient Way

Ah, yes, that makes sense. Never been on there, though I think there's been a link or two on here to a discussion there.

Yes.  I think this forum is better than TAW.

I agree. At least here we do not have Judaizers serving as Admins/CEOs.

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.

I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.

This topic was split as it was not a Convert Issue to discuss TAW.

I am closing this in the Convert Issues forum.
