Orthodoxy through another perspective

Quote:Maybe no matter how much we rack our brains on this subject, or even talk to numerous pastors who seem to think they know what's best for you, possibly there is a wisdom to be found in a letting go of this somewhat and just being honest and real and saying I don't know.


It just occurred to me that possibly there is more heat than light in what I have said above . . . but, as it relates to "perspectives" I think it is fair to say that not everyone has an Abba Seraphim in their life. And, for those who do not, in light of our discussion, how can there not be a degree of a Protestant mindset/perspective (whether we admit it or not)?

As we might consider the words of Scripture about letting go, or laying it all aside, I wonder how much of this applies to even our efforts in our 'religion'?
