I wouldn't look at The Church as a correct decision, but a way of being. I have the same attitude towards misunderstood Orthodoxy as I have towards other, well, heresies. If Orthodoxy is yet another denomination, another religious (as in worldly) system, then what's the use of it. It has to be more, it has to be human nature, it has to be what unites all humanity and what unites us with God. That's how I see Orthodoxy, but I believe it is largely misunderstood and that's why people mostly stay away from it (and other denominations).
So, I understand hesitation from many perspectives. I have my own hesitations.
Yet, in my experience, Orthodoxy is really what I would want a religion to be and nothing else. In fact, Orthodoxy is the one religion that is not a religion (what most people hate). Orthodoxy is love, life, beauty, harmony, etc., on a perfect and divine level because it comes from God Himself and He is literally present. Orthodoxy doesn't work without The Grace of God, His literal presence within us. Obviously, this is not the case with other denominations where the emphasis is put on the powers of the human being. Given our spiritual illness (we are infected with sin) the Orthodox way is to heal, not to correct the human being, or save it from some judicial Hell. Orthodoxy restores human nature and brings it back to its normal state (in communion with God through His Grace).
Surely, in a way, what I said above seems to be what I want Orthodoxy to be. Of course it is because we have a free will and rationality, so we would never accept what we don't need, what we don't desire. Yet, there are no gimmicks as far as I am concerned because what I want Orthodoxy to be is surely what I understand that many others, including God, want it to be. Is Orthodoxy the truth faith? Well, I wouldn't answer this by comparing it with other denominations. I would simply figure out if Orthodoxy is the very Truth. The simple Truth is the real judge.
