How should an Orthodox Christian be?

I don’t know. But here’s my view on the subject.

Basic requirements:

  • Polite;
  • Educated;

Put this filter, and you will lose a lot of people typing words on the Internet. Both are things which can be achieved – you can be polite (it affects other people’s liberties if you don’t) and educated (not smart, just read things);

To make from this Orthodox a model to me, I’d also expect things that shouldn’t be there; yes, I’m talking about:

  • Getting politeness to a new level – be a good person; do good in this world;
  • Be more than educated, be smart/wise;

I can give one example of a person who meets my criteria:
Nicolae STEINHARDT – the Orthodox Christian that means the most to me.

If I would ask one question to a typical Orthodox Christian, this would be:

What stops you in being the one which you should be?

My request can be compared to:

On a wagon, bound for market,
There’s a calf with a mournful eye.
High above him, there’s a swallow,
Winging swiftly through the sky.

How the winds are laughing,
They laugh with all their might.
Love and laugh the whole day through
And, half a summer’s night.

Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna,
Donna, Donna, Donna, Don,
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna,
Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.

Stop complaining said the farmer,
Who told you a calf to be?
Why can’t you have wings to fly with,
Like the swallow, so proud and free?

How the winds are laughing,
They laugh with all their might.
Love and laugh the whole day through
And, half the summer’s night.

Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna,
Donna, Donna, Donna, Don,
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna,
Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.

Calves are easily bound and slaughtered
Never knowing the reason why
Oh, why can’t you have wings to fly with
Like the swallow you’ve learned to fly

How the winds are laughing,
They laugh with all their might.
Love and laugh the whole day through
And, half the summer’s night.

Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna,
Donna, Donna, Donna, Don,
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna,
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna.
