Your prayers are much needed. I have been practically pushing myself down to the ground - temptation was not even strong enough and still I let myself fall...all the while feeling sorry for doing so...does it make any sense? please pray for me if you wish...thank you.

if Christ does and says x. And someone else does and says not x and you are ever in doubt, follow Christ.

Πλούσιοι επτώχευσαν και επείνασαν
Οιδε εκζητούντες τον Κύριον
Ουκ ελαττωθήσονται παντός αγαθού

Lord have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

To fall is human. To remain fallen forever is demonic. So, we get up again, with God's help, and show our humanity, which is saved by the Son of Man. God be with you!

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.
