Do you consider yourself to be a traveller who has completed his spiritual journey? What is the end of your spiritual quest and why? Is it Orthodoxy or something else?

Life to salvation is described as a task that is not done until we reach the finish of life in this world.

Acts 20:24 ►

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me--the task of testifying to the good news of God's grace.

2 Timothy 4 ►

6For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. 7I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

The journey is only beginning.  Tongue

We're continuously on our earthly journey until the hour of our death.

Nope.  The journey continues.

Everyone, remember to buckle your seatbelts, because I guarantee the journey is going to get bumpier on the road ahead.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Should I get it that you are still searching ? (that is what I actually asked and was referring to) Are you not convinced of your current spiritually ? Do you find yourself unsatisfied of your inner quest? Do you consider you have not found the truth?

I would like those who did to say what is their end of this spiritual quest and why?
