Why I Converted to Orthodoxy

This past Saturday ("Bright Saturday" in Orthodoxy) I was officially Baptised and Chrismated into Orthodox Christianity at St. Ksenia of St. Petersburg's Russian Orthodox Church. This is a culmination of a couple of years reconsidering the Evangelical Protestant faith of my childhood, and I decided to share my reasoning.

Christ is Risen

Christ is risen from the dead,
trampling down death by death,
and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!

Armarium Magnus

I've mentioned Tim O'Neill's blog here before, but he hadn't posted since quite some time. (he's even worse than me at the whole regular posts things; though his posts are longer and far more interesting) Despite this I've still checked back there every now and again incase he starts posting again, and now he has. As with all of his reviews it's full of interesting historic information; I strongly recommend reading it.

The Stupidest Thing on the Internet Ever

A review God's Philosophers: How the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science. I strongly recommend reading this post; It's both entertaining and educational. Note the title of this post is not a reference to Author himself, but rather something he talks about in his post (about a third of the way down).

The Four L's

Whilst this argument has been stated previously (C.S. Lewis formed the first version with only three L's, and Legend was added later), I feel it is well worth repeating. This is essentially an argument as too who the real historic figure of Jesus of Nazareth was. There is extensive historical documents surrounding this Rabbi from Judea who claimed to be much more than just a Rabbi. (Don't believe me that Jesus claimed to be God? See Matt. 27:43, Mark 14:62, Luke 22:70, John 6:35, John 6:40, John 6:51, John 8:12, John 8:23-24, John 8:58, and a bunch of others that I couldn't be bothered to look up right now)
