A Call from the 'outside'.

A Call from the 'outside'.
I have enjoyed reading many of the posts in this forum. Having been in and out of your web page for a couple of weeks now, may I offer a suggestion?
Your dicussions seem to be full of technical orthodox jargon that I am sure benifits the 'insiders' of your fellowship - but spare a thought for those of us sincere seekers who have not had adequate exposure to the Fathers and are unfamiliar with orthodox terminology.
I am not being negative here! I am hungering for a deeper walk with God. I have come to the conclusion that Orthodoxy has pearls of wisdom that may help me greatly in my Christian pilgrimage. BUT I feel somehow out of my depths when participating in this forum. I have for many years followed Christ as an evangelical - but something within me is screaming out that there is MORE to the Gospel than forensics.
Having said this, here is a question that I have been wrestling with for a few months now - could someone please help me here - Am I correct - Orthodoxy does not view the Gospel as primarily forensic but rather ontological. Am I correct?
Thank you

Don Wilson
