Orthodoxy Ain’t Hip

Orthodoxy Ain’t Hip April 30, 2006

“When I was a teenager back in the 1940s, I thought there was something wrong with our church because we were not changing, and I wondered, ‘What is the problem?’ ” said Isaiah, now 75 and metropolitan (bishop) of the Denver metropolis for 13 years.

“After 44 years as a priest, I realize why we haven’t changed,” he said.

“(The church) reflects what Paul the Apostle says of Jesus Christ, that he is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. That means that truth is absolute, it is not relative,” he said. “We can say that we belong to a church that has not changed in almost 2,000 years.”
