Questions from someone exploring the Orthodox faith...

Hello, thank you very much for all the replies they are very interesting indeed and have given me lots to think about!
And yes John I agree with you about Evangelicals and the claims they make about interpreting the Bible. I was talking to my Christian friends today about a youth group they go to (I used to go to) they were saying how they don't feel comfortable expressing their views on spiritual issues at the youthclub if they go against traditional Evangelical teaching, this is because the leaders claim to have it all worked out and reject any view that does not fit in with theirs. There are many mini-Popes out there in the Evangelical area who claim to have a perfect interpretation of the Bible!

Here's another question, is there a particular leader of the Orthodox Church? What do the Orthodox believe Jesus is talking about when he makes Peter the 'rock' of His Church? I have heard Evangelical teaching on this, that Jesus was talking about Peter's faith being the rock of his Church. But Peter is notorious for rejecting Jesus at least three times, is this the kind of faith Jesus admires? But then again I suppose we all doubt and falter, so I don't know?!
