Am usually different from my parents as in my thoughts.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

That's funny, I've never been indoctrinated by pretzels.
Please don't project meta-debates onto me.

You were indoctrinated to think that way by your parents.

Sometimes, but you do run into people whose parents were not parental.

Your parents introduce you to concepts. If some of those concepts are wrong or incomplete, you learn that later as you learn that what people know is limited.

To me, my parents are/were saints so I do not have much more to add outside of theoretical thoughts.

and/or the Roman Catholic church.
Though they have the B-Movie Catechism to their credit. I'm not sure if he's yet used Attack of the Killer Tomatoes to explain Mary Mediatrix yet, but I'm sure he'll find a way sooner or later.

The dread Pantocrator...is also "Christouli mou", (my little Christ), who really listens when you run in to your neighborhood church on the way to work to cry and light a candle because your daughter is in trouble at school. The untouchable and all-holy Mother of God is also "Panayitsa mou", who really will take your part before the court of heaven because, just like your own mom, she’ll always stick up for her children, no matter how badly they’ve behaved.

Life would be a lot easier if I wasn't constantly questioning everything and being open minded.
This profile is defunct as of 11/8/2017. I created it before Orthodoxy, and have used it after Orthodoxy.

I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

I will likely lurk on this forum under a different name.
