This is a lesson for us evangelical Protestant converts to Orthodoxy: we must not make over the Orthodox Church in our own image, substituting sola scriptura for sola patrilogia, sola fide for sola lex canonica. But by the same token, for those converts for whom convertitis has been successfully navigated, they should be careful, in their understandable concern, of taking from their still-converting counterparts the tools necessary for them to make the journey. One may affirm general truths without canonizing methods. One may offer loving correction, without sinking to diatribe. And always one may offer simple and prayerful silence.
For it is God who saves. And it is always good to pray.
