Popular New Age thought postulates that everyone has a god within. It’s a pleasant way of saying that we’re all special while making “god” to be rather banal. But there is a clear teaching of classical Christianity regarding Christ within us, and it is essential to our Orthodox way of life. We should not understand our relationship with God to be an external matter, as if we were one individual and God another. Our union with God, birthed in us at holy baptism, is far more profound. In fact, Paul says in 1 Corinthians that “he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him” (1 Corinthians…

Hello. This is John Maddex. And today on Ancient Faith Radio, we’re bringing you two timely interviews on one subject. The first one features our own Kevin Allen, speaking with Orthodox priest Fr. Patrick Reardon. Fr. Patrick was in the news recently regarding a decision he made to no longer sign marriage licenses in his home state of Illinois.

Today is Thomas Sunday, and Thomas gets a little bit of a bad reputation in modern days, because in Greek—actually, there’s this situation where it’s one of the few times the English actually expresses Thomas’ characteristics better than the Greek, because in Greek we call Thomas “O apistos Thomas,” which actually means “unbelieving Thomas,” but that’s not technically true, because in English we say “Doubting Thomas,” and that’s more of the appropriate word to use, that Thomas was not an atheist. It’s not that he did not believe. He believed in God, and he…

“I don’t want to die.”

A few weeks ago, one of our community members—his name is Jacob—came to the mission and was quite visibly shaken. I asked him if everything was all right. I then asked if we could speak privately. He told me about his health and how it was failing, how he suffered from severe pain, but nothing seems to help, not even the medication he is prescribed. In fact, he said how he ended up in the hospital the other day. All he was told by the hospital staff was that he was found lying on a sidewalk during a cold weather alert, wearing nothing but his underwear. The worst part, he said, was…

One day, our Lord Jesus Christ came to Sy’char, a city in Samari’ia, near the field that Jacob gave to his son, Joseph. Jesus was tired from His trip, so He sat down by Jacob’s well. His disciples went into Sy’char to buy food.

While Jesus sat there, a woman came to get water from the well. Jesus asked her for a drink. “Why are you, a Jew, asking me, a Samaritan (who the Jews do not like), and a woman, to give you a drink?” asked the Samaritan woman.

“If you knew who was asking this, you would ask Him for living water!” Jesus answered. “But you don’t have anything to get the water with, and…
