Addendum: A Helpful Article

On Becoming and Remaining an Orthodox Christian is a pretty decent article on this sort of thing. Also, it seems my biggest source of consistent traffic is google hits for "ocatruth". Ugh. It seems Jesse Cone and Rod Dreher took down their anonymous web site at some point, which is unfortunate, because it's the sort of thing that should remain on the public record. On the other hand, it is a good thing because it means nobody can read the tripe they put out there.

There is only one criterion for entering the Orthodox Church and that is because you are convinced that it is for your personal salvation, for your spiritual survival, because it is God's Will for you, because you know that this is your spiritual home and that, whatever the cost, you can never be anything else.

This should be on the top of every catechism syllabus in every parish. It would save so much aggravation, not to mention heartbreak, if we were upfront about this.

I support this post, and I bookmarked that article the last time you posted it - 2008? A while ago. So it's clearly doing some good.
