Nick Damascus describes himself as one who, “seeks to discover and apply the proverbial question of what is truth and wisdom, to fill that gaping hole, to become complete and to become realistically and synergistically functional.”   

In an attempt to live the Christian life, which he says is a definite work in progress, Damascus has discovered that he’s created the Christ that fits into his lifestyle and agrees with his ego (and boy what an ego, he says), carefully avoiding what God intended him to be. 

He quotes Saint Paul, who said, “Be transformed in the renewal of your nous.

For SpokaneFAVS Damascus will be writing about the Christian Orthodox tradition.

“Join me in finding our way back home, to become what we were designed to be, and to live in that peace and harmony. When you change the way you look at things, things change the way they look,” he said.

As an infant, I was baptized as an Eastern Orthodox Christian. However, I would say that becoming a Christian is a work in progress, and I often wonder would there be enough evidence to convict me of becoming a Christian. The Orthodox Church is the ancient Church that Christ and the Apostles established. It is not a religion but rather a way of life. It is not about rules and regulations but rather guide posts to make choices to transition to what we were designed to become. Becoming Orthodox is not a conversion but more so a transformation of self. It’s not about being right: it is about “right being.” In John 14:6, Christ says I am the Way (to love and serve one another), the Truth (there is only one reality), and the Life (that life source is love). I invite you to submit any topics or questions to “Ask An Eastern Orthodox Christian” on the website. Join me in finding our way back home to the original teachings of the Church. When you change the way you look at things, things change the way they look.
