“There are at least three things I’ve learned from Evangelicals,” Orthodox theologian Bradley Nassif told Again magazine. “First, it is possible to be ‘sacramentalized’ but not ‘evangelized.’ By that I mean it’s possible to be religious but lost.” The second, continued Nassif, who teaches theology at North Park University in Chicago, is that the Orthodox “need to focus on the centrality of Christ, not the centrality of ‘Orthodoxy’,” and the third is that “the most urgent need in world Orthodoxy at this time is the need for an aggressive internal missions of rededicating or converting our priests and people to Jesus Christ.”
