When should you debate what you believe?
Back in the eighth century, a man named Abo lived near Baghdad. He was a maker of perfumes and oils, and a devout Muslim, according to the Orthodox Church in America website. “We might say that he argued his way into the faith.” He visited what is the modern-day Asian republic of Georgia. The country had been converted to Christianity centuries earlier, but Arab Muslims now had control. Abo noticed the deep faith of the subjugated Georgian Christians and was intrigued. He began talking with priests and bishops about their beliefs.
