Hi everyone and god bless, this is my first post ever on this site and allow me to introduce myself.
Im Robert and am an greek orthodox as of 10/10/10.(fom the northeast U.S).
Really love reading your concerns questions and replies on various issues, and best of all is any given issue
where i can see and sense the love of god in you in keeping with holy scripture and the two greatest commandments through our holy orthodox church and faith.
My style of discourse is in the hopes of the edifying love of our god being the forefront of our search for truths together as im really non-confrontational and not good at arguing, like on secular levels where the goal may be to conquer ect.
So it is with faith that I come here to share orthodox christian views.
Also though I am not greek in ethnicicity I Love the original orthodox church no matter the ethnic background of my orthodox brothers and sisters.
For a Christian ending to our life, painless, blameless, peaceful; and a good defense before the dread judgement seat of Christ, let us ask of the Lord.
And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.

Welcome.
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.

Hello. :)
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Please tell me you are 42, if you broke that down into binary.

Because then YOU are the answer to life the universe and everything:
