Gay orthodox christian dating

To Eastern Orthodoxy, the relationship which people have with God is reflected in the love for one another; the union of two people in marriage is considered to be a reflection of our ultimate union with God.

I’ve now spent as much time actively engaging this leg of the journey as I spent outside of a Christian community.

The Biblical Greek term for sin, αμαρτία (amartia), means "sin": it implies that one's aim is out and that one has not reached the goal, one's fullest potential.

As in Western Christianity, in Eastern Orthodoxy the goal is union with God.

Orthodoxy also understands sin as a disease of the soul, a condition where the soul is lacking in God's grace.
