You look at Christianity through eyes of a man who lives in America in the 21st century. But don't forget that Christ and His apostles have never been American citizens. Besides, Christianity did not start in Europe with Luther. It began in the Middle East in the 1st century AD and it has a long and rich tradition.

No. Do I need to explain why? First, I donít see a reason to do that. Second, I believe itís not a fruitful work. Itís a waste of time to convert someone who doesnít share your experience. I have two best friends who are atheists. I can talk to them about God but if they donít feel any reality behind my words, then my talk is useless. They canít prove me that there is no God. And I canít prove them that there is God. Our views are based on different experiences. Third, doing is better than saying. To me, conversion is not about what someone says but what he does. And I do nothing inspiring. So I just want to help you clear stereotypes about the EO Christians and convert nobody but myself to the Eastern Orthodox beliefs and practices.

Anyway, Awareness, thanks. It was nice talking to you. God bless.
