If we nurture blasphemous thoughts of evil and worldly passions of pride, greed, lust, jealousy, gluttony, covetousness and sometimes anger, we destroy that inner peace. Our lives become chaotic and in disarray, and, more importantly, we lose control.
Orthodoxy, which is the unchanged original teaching of Christ and the apostles, doesn't teach free will, it is free will. In the Eastern Orthodox Church (EOC) we are guided, not controlled. We are influenced, not told. We are illumined, transformed, and strengthened by our faith and not extinguished by doubt.
The Orthodox Christian faith is the original and oldest Christian faith. It sees itself as the fullness of the revelation of God to man, and that the Orthodox Church is the ancient community of believers founded by Jesus Christ and the apostles.
