Ακούστε στα αγγλικά εμπειρίες νεοφώτιστων Ορθοδόξων Χριστιανών που βρήκαν το δρόμο προς την Ορθόδοξη πίστη, ύστερα από περιπλάνηση σε άλλες χριστιανικές ομολογίες ή σε άλλες θρησκείες. Τα ταξίδια αυτά αποκαλύπτουν τη τραγικότητα της Βαβέλ της θρησκευτικής απορρύθμισης του Λούθηρου, ο οποίος προκειμένου να αντιπαλέσει τον συγκεντρωτισμό της ρωμαιοκαθολικής ομολογίας, οδήγησε τον χριστιανισμό στον κατακερματισμό , στη Βαβέλ των 40.000 προτεσταντικών, πεντηκοστιανών και χιλιαστικών ομάδων – αιρέσεων, κάνοντας δύσκολη την αναζήτηση της ΑΛΗΘΕΙΑΣ για την ιστορική, πρωτοχριστιανική, αρχέγονη Ορθόδοξη Εκκλησία, που υπάρχει διαρκώς, σύμφωνα με τη διαβεβαίωση του Ιησού Χριστού, ότι αυτή θα μείνει ακλόνητη ΑΙΩΝΙΑ σε θέματα πίστεως ( Ματθ, 16:18 )

Glen Chancy is a graduate of the University of Florida with a degree in Political Science and a concentration in Eastern European studies. He then taught in Poland for three years, bringing home a lovely Polish wife at the end of 1995. Back home, he reverted to the Pentecostalism of his youth, and took his Roman Catholic wife with him. His wife, Justyna, accepted this quietly for years. Eventually, she wanted out of Pentecostalism, and by then so did Glen. They visited a Roman Catholic Church for Mass, only to discover that it was unrecognizable for a traditional Catholic. During the service, Justyna kept demanding (in Polish), «Does the Pope know what these people are doing!» When female Eucharistic ministers helped dispense the Body of Christ, Justyna came very close to outright violence.
