Eastern Orthodox ChurchEastern Orthodox Church is aware that his presence on the basis of what all the Apostles, and that the deposit of faith is an expression of the spirit moving through history in the context of the life of the church. Holy tradition alongside and independently of other traditions, including the different cultural traditions, traditions, or false or innovation and invention, in some cases for years. The teachings of the Orthodox tradition, in other words, what is absolutely true and well established, beyond doubt, and often expressed in the life of the Church and the response of the different traditions and teachings of the false pretext of the fight against heterodox practices and heretical doctrines, which has always believed. Think of the Eastern Orthodox tradition of Santa is still the expression of the spirit that guided the church through history, the Church against the gates of hell not prevail. In accordance with the promise of Christ that the Holy Spirit, who leads his followers in the whole truth, and I think the expression of the Orthodox faith, customs and traditions are evidence of this trend sacred self-consistent and verifiable by the historical perspective as the basis for the continued since the beginning of that history, without contradiction or innovation. Holy Tradition is that the life of the Holy Spirit as a dynamic active in the church, not a set of beliefs or transmitted Unthinkingly changing. The essential elements of an effective participation in the life of the spirit of the church is the holy book, and the Ecumenical counsils, the behavior of the saints, and icons, patristic texts liturgy and prayer. Bible * *. There is no separation, in accordance with the orthodox, the Bible and the tradition of the Bible is not part of the tradition of the church, in terms of definition. The Old Testament is happening (or tradition) and, through Israel, and the New Testament is the tradition of the church. The gospels and the letters that the New Testament, written by the members of the Church, in cooperation with the Holy Spirit the church holy by the church eventually, an affirmation of the sacred source. The Bible was held in a central, where the holy tradition, that reading and prayer in the liturgy, set out and discussed by the parents, but there will be a presentation and live the life of the saints, and are reflected in the iconography of education. Ecumenical Councils * *. Seven Ecumenical Council, which the current leaders of the Church to confirm that the teachings of the Church against the heretical teaching. Business Council in Jerusalem is the model, the following seven, who always seems that it is necessary to stress what has always considered the universal church, and everywhere in the collective, as opposed to learning a new or innovative. The first Board of Nicea, for example, emphasizes the doctrine of the Trinity and the deity of Christ, is opposed to the teachings of each of the Sabellius and Arius, who denied these things. Bishops and priests to the councils are not limited to the vote of their own opinion, but trying to explain and confirm what has always believed in and by the Church everywhere, from the beginning. * Part III of the Torah *. This aspect of the tradition of the Bible refers to the study of the saint, or known comonly the lives of the saints. Orthodox understanding, and in contrast to the error, not saints, who arrived in a state of perfection or immunity from sin, but they have spent their whole life to repent of your sins. As a result, beomce clean, and the vessels used by God, and sometimes miraculous ways, but also the most common and humble. Church recognized these people after death, and honor them with the following examples for ourselves. * Symbol *. The use of the symbols of the Orthodox Church, which is always two dimensions, an important center. Paintings remind us that the saints are with us in the Kingdom of God, those photos of loved ones, as the orthodox, to remember those who live a holy life, and put them in Christ. Holy Orthodox icons are not, but frankly, the discrimination by the same Jesus Christ who leads us the honor of fathers and mothers, but not worship. Orthodox honor the saints through symbols, through kissing, for transit, and prominently displayed. Icons include the value of education and learning through images. Patristic writings * *. The writings of the Fathers, as in the Bible, and learning and teaching and refute heresy, is an important aspect of the activity of the Spirit in the life of the church. My father is not infallible, but the Bible makes clear, in addition to the emphasis on other aspects of the sacred traditions that once all the saints in the church and always believed. * Mass and prayers *. The worship of the Church of the Church collected about other aspects of the sacred traditions. Together as a church to God on the one hand, and this is the meaning of "ritual" - a joint action. According to this, says the Bible in the Church, in honor of the saints in the iconography, and the prayers and singing to that in the sanctuaries. The holy places is an essential part of the ritual of life, the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers, and the level of institutions, both in person. All aspects of the sacred traditions, the Eastern Orthodox and the global unity - no absolute power over another. Therefore, the priesthood and the secret that there is no need for the power of the simple life of a saint; interpretation of the Bible has no authority over the private sector and the ecumenical councils. And all together in the unity of the Holy Spirit, with a diversity of opinion, and without contradiction.
