One thought on “Being aweful is awesome”

  1. One of the greatest things about Orthodoxy, and this has only become recently detectable in my short 8 months of being Orthodox, is that I am set free from having to know all the answers. Peace.

    I remember almost constantly debating the doctrine of salvation as a Protestant. What are the exact implications of prevenient grace in the light of forensic justification; pitting God (sovereignty) against man (human freedom); etc. Looking back I can see it was all intelectual self-pleasuring.

    Now I cannot think of a better answer to how we are saved than simply “union with Christ.” If you ask me how, I couldn't explain, but I could tell you that if I do not attend worship services and keep my prayer rule, I will quite literally die.
