I am asking about this topic not seeking arguments, but knowledge. Knowledge that I think I will regret knowing, but once I started reading I could not stop... I am, by no mean, as educated as any of you guys, that is why I am asking.
Anyways, without any farther delay, here is my question: How "Orthodox" is our Church/church? I have been reading lately about the "corrupt" popes of our church, (It is a light reading from unreliable sources, but I do not have any better) about Fr. Matta el mesken, about Max Misheal, about our "Deconate" rank, and many other seemingly imperfections. Maybe there is even more that I do not know of. I grew up with an apparently false knowledge that our church has been perfectly orthodox over the years under the protection of the Holy Spirit, but how? How are we under the protection of the Holy spirit and we have "corrupt popes" and all of those seemingly imperfections?
Again, I am as worthless as a rat compared to you guys. I am not asking for argument, but of knowledge. Thank You.
