To be "an orthodox Christian" means to have the right or correct opinion about Christian doctrine. However, who is entitled to judge that? One approach is for an individual person to decide who he or she will trust to give them the right opinion. Another approach is for an individual to independently assess what is the right opinion about any particular issue. For Catholics, orthodoxy lies in the Catholic Church itself, and in the end… Read More

'therefore take heed to your spirt, that you do not deal treacherously.' " So God says… Read More
Well, the Roman Catholic Church is actually one church, because they all have the same leader, the pope. He and the bishops (called the magisterium) make sure that all Catholics are taught the correct truths about the faith. In the Orthodox churches, they are not all one church because they do not have a common leader for all of them. Also, many of the Orthodox churches are state churches, they just depend on the country… Read More
The head of the Orthodox Church is Jesus Christ.

The supreme authority in the Orthodox Church rests with an Ecumenical… Read More

Firstly, I'm not sure what "the Orthodox religion" is. There's the Eastern Orthodox church, which is a Christian religion. There's Jewish Orthodox, which is, I hope obviously, a type of Judaism. There are also many other churches with "orthodox" in their name, including the Lutheran Orthodox Church and a branch of Bahai. Secondly, the differences between any of these and Islam are so multitudinous that it's not reasonable to expect anyone to list all of… Read More

"Greek" Orthodox Church does not refer to the nationality of the parishioners, but to the language of scripture; the Old Testament of the first Christians was the Septuagint translated into Greek in 225 BC in Alexandria, Egypt, and the New Testament, with the exception of the Gospel of Matthew, was originally written in Greek. All Eastern Orthodox Churches by rights may claim to be "Greek" Orthodox Churches, because all have their foundation in the Greek… Read More

A: Saint Augustine identified 'original sin' as the consequence of the fall of man, but this was a view never accepted in the Greek-speaking east. It is a particularly Catholic teaching that all are born with original sin, which can only be washed away with baptism, and Protestant Churches give less recognition, if any, to original sin as a reason for baptism. The Orthodox Churches and Jews do not have the concept of original sin.
There are fourteen/fifteen "Autocephalous" Orthodox Churches. Depending on who you talk to.... "Autocephalous" means, basically, "self-ruling." So, each of these fourteen/fifteen Churches (1.
