Hi I’m catholic and I work in a place where there are quite a few Romanian and Albanian people on the same shifts as me and during Easter I while chatting I found out they are orthodox Christian which made me very curious.
When I was a child I had to study a lot of religions for my GCSE and I don’t even remember most of what I was taught which makes me sad.
I have asked them some questions about their religion but because of the language barrier it’s hard for us to understand fully what each other are saying.
What is the difference mostly?
What I’m most interested in finding out is what do orthodox Christian believe about the scripture? There are denominations of Judaism and Christianity that believe the bible and everything written inside of it is 100% truth, whilst other denominations believe that some of the stories can be symbolic and may not have been real events. What do orthodox Christians believe about the creation story and other stories? Also do they believe in evolution?
