I apologize if I expressed myself wrong in language or tone.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š And I thank you for your prayers.
I'll try to re-state the question accurately and inoffensively.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š I am genuinely curious if anyone who converted to Orthodoxy had to choose between Chalcedonian Orthodoxy or non-Chalcedonian Orthodoxy?ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š In other words, was anyone attracted or interested by both and had to pick one?ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š If so, and if it is not too personal, I would ask you to share what led you to choose one tradition of Orthodoxy over another.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š
The reason for my question is this.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š I am considering converting to Orthodoxy, but I am becoming aware of its different traditions / denominations (Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian), and I find this intriguing but confusing, and I was wondering if anyone else faced this same situation too.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š
I know of some people who converted to a certain Orthodox family just because they like their theologians better, or the expression of faith is something they would rather express.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š In addition, due to contemporary peace, it's possible, as I've seen with one, to become an EO, for example, but embrace OO theologians as well, or vice versa. Many times people become what their nearest parish offers, regardless of the differences.
