Christ Is Risen.
Why is The Church, Orthodoxy, not permitted or blessed to innovate or modify what has been revealed?
BECAUSE - If it is not "believed in the church everywhere, always, by everyone" [Saint Vincent of Lerins] then it is not to be accepted by the Church because it is not of THE ETERNAL GOD!
If it doesn't equate with what's been revealed already it's no go!
This is not digging in "the heels of taditionalism" nor is it not allowing The Holy Spirit to blow through The Church;
The I AM is ETERNAL ,and as HIS people, we are also called to be...
it's because ... "if you change theology, you change what it means to be HIS Church".
When such thoughts assail, continually bring these thoughts to the heart and remember when pride, NOT HUMILITY, speaks, say...
"[your Name] was not brought, by Jesus, to Faith to change it - but to be changed BY IT"!
An I when 'crossed' out makes
Glory to The Father, and to The Son, and to The Holy Spirit,
Now and ever and unto the Ages of Ages; Amen.
Even as he spoke, many put their faith in him. To [the Jews] who [had] believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
