Living Orthodoxy in a Sinful World

Many people have questions about our Orthodox Christian
Faith. Many simply do not remember what they learned in Sunday School. Many are
not comfortable asking their questions in public. But ALL of us can benefit
from the questions of others. This week’s question is inspired by Saint Paul’s
words, “It is good neither to eat meat nor drink wine nor do anything by which
your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak. Do you have faith? Have
it to yourself before God.” (Romans 14.21-22) In the context of recent
contemporary issues facing the Church in America, what does Saint Paul mean
when he says these words, and how do we live Orthodoxy in a sinful world?
