A Calvinist Looks at Orthodoxy

This interesting post is found at Steve Hays' Triablogue. From this blog's perspective, it isn't the act of the Calvinist's examination that is interesting, but it is the collection of comments on Orthodoxy that are interesting.

My big problem with Orthodoxy isn't with the icons, the incense, the bells, and the otherworldly atmosphere into which one enters upon going to an Orthodox service. Instead, speaking only for myself [though seconded by the article writer above], my big problem is the diminishing of the doctrine of justification by faith alone through grace alone, a doctrine whose reality and implications are the main theme of Romans 1-8, not to mention other parts of the NT.
