Our Lord was allotted the most infamous and painful death and treated as a worthless criminal. He was stripped naked, scourged and suspended by iron nails so to end His life in the midst of the insults and curses of those very men for whom He was to die—becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross (Phil 2:8). And all of this for what? To save us miserable and ungrateful sinners.
There was a time when I used to pray with my prayer rope whenever possible and even during the night But now, I have my laptop, and the availability of entertainment at my fingertips. Yes, I have argued with my conscience and have told myself that I am not doing anything wrong.
The Word of God acts gently within your soul. God transforms us through his word, so it is very necessary to allow the Word of God to sink into you. And the right interpretation of the Word of God has to sink within you, not the word of God spoken by heretics and schismatics. The Orthodox Church helps you to know the Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth.
