Recently, I’ve been writing a series of posts that I plan on releasing in the next few weeks. I’m titling the series, “Redefining Orthodoxy.” I will be examining traditional, orthodox Christian beliefs, and explaining how my understanding, though perhaps atypical, fits within orthodox Christianity.

I plan on addressing a number of topics, including:

  • The incarnation
  • Communion
  • The crucifixion
  • The resurrection
  • Scripture

However, I want to be thorough, and address as many issues of essential Christianity as I can. So I’m asking everyone:

What are the essential components of the Christian faith?

What are the pillars of orthodoxy? What differentiates Christianity from other religions and philosophies? What beliefs, if deleted from Christianity, would change the fundamentals of the religion? What sacraments and ordinances are key to Christianity?
