Care to explain what an Orthodox (Western Reformed) is?

Was just curious, is it a Calvinistic Orthodox?

Oh No No No!

It is a mix of Orthodox without the "Mary Worship" and "created over the top Traditions" and Hi-Church Traditional Anglicanism.

In other words, a false religion of your own choosing? ;)

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

No, JB, it isn't.

Tom,

As long as you're fielding questions, what's that avatar about?  I can't tell what it is.  :P

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

I don't know - it is on my Church's web site. Just looked different.

It is titled "Sophia Symbol" Not sure if the web developer created it or what.

Dude, just in general, haven't we been through the Mary worship thing like a billion times? How much does it take before one accepts that we don't worship her? I mean, its ok that you have some issues with the Church that you try to work out. But making up a name of a sect for just  yourself when you are actually a bonified member of the Orthodox Church, cut and dry, because you think we're worshipping Mary? You don't beome a member of the Church hoping to reform it. It reforms you. In all due respect, why don't you believe all that it teaches if you decided to become a believer?
