Hello All,

I have been interested in and reading a lot about the Orthodox Church. I have had many stumbling blocks but most have been answered in a satisfactory way. I still have my predjustices to anything that is Catholic but I am gradually overcoming most of these. Some of the things I have had trouble with are my longstanding belief in scripture alone, Grace Alone for salvation, and a negative view of the veneration of saints, the veneration of icons, infant baptism, baptismal regeneration and so forth.

The entire list above has been dwelt with though my reading but I have not seen anyone discuss taking a new name when one joins an Orthodox Church. Is this just common practice or is it a necessary tradition to become an Orthodox Christian.

Thanks for your answer,

Bry
