Top Selling Author Dreher: Hank is Orthodox-GREAT! Conversion from Protestant to Orthodox 18/4/2017 12:00 πμ
After news of Hanegraaff's conversion, New York Times best-selling author Rod Dreher of "The Benedict Option" -- himself a convert to Orthodoxy from Roman Catholicism -- congratulated him with these words: "What astounding news! Many evangelicals seek the early church; well, here it is, in Orthodoxy."

The one Orthodox church is  Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox and what Negrut called the "Orthodox diaspora" -- those Orthodox churches in Western Europe, the Americas, Africa, Japan, China and Australia.
According to Negrut, Orthodox theologians also say that church tradition -- that is, decisions of church councils and the teachings of the Church Fathers -- stands alongside Scripture as a religious authority. In Orthodoxy, tradition completes Scripture and vice versa, Negrut wrote.
Hanegraaff told listeners that he believes in the supremacy of Scripture during the same radio broadcast, April 10, in which he confirmed his conversion to Orthodoxy.

"In terms of sola Scriptura, I've always been committed to the Bible as the infallible guide for faith and practice," Hanegraaff said. "I think that's what it means. It means that the Bible is infallible.

It was inspired by the Holy Spirit."
Yet, he added, Christians "also have church history. And church history is very, very important because the practices of the early Christian church have been passed down to us…. Men are not infallible. It is only Scripture that ultimately is infallible. But we have a guide, an oral tradition that we are blessed to be able to follow as well."
According to Roberts, Hanegraaff likely has accepted a Western version of Orthodoxy, interpreted through an evangelical lens. Whatever Hanegraaff's understanding of Orthodoxy, Roberts said he can't understand how Hanegraaff can endorse a branch of Christianity that currently teaches unbiblical doctrines and ceremonies, while in some places also persecuting evangelicals in Russia and elsewhere in Eastern Europe as well as the Mideast.

Latin West vs Greek East Christianity Differences theologize " is permitted only to those who have passed examinations and have reached theoria(revelation or spiritual experience), and who have been previously purified in soul and body, or at least are being purified ." [7]

This state of theoria is two fold or has two stages: a)mind and spirit focused on God, b) Experience of God, a vision of the glory of God in Christ. The normal functions of the body, such as sleeping, eating, drinking, and digestion are suspended. In other respects, the intellect and the body function normally. One does not lose consciousness, as happens in the ecstatic mystical experiences of non-Orthodox Christian and pagan religions. One is fully aware and conversant with his environment and those around him, except that he sees everything and everyone saturated by the uncreated glory of God, which is neither light nor darkness, and nowhere and everywhere at the same time. This state may be of short, medium, or long duration. In the case of Moses it lasted for forty days and forty nights. The faces of those in this state of glorification give off an imposing radiance, like that of the face of Moses, and after they die, their bodies become holy relics. These relics give off a strange sweet smell, which at times can become strong. In many cases, these relics remain intact in a good state of preservation, without having been embalmed. They are completely stiff from head to toe, light, dry, and with no signs of putrefaction.
