Hank Hanegraaff talks with Fr. Barnabas Powell, who is the parish priest at Saints Raphael, Nicholas and Irene Greek Orthodox Church, in Cumming, Georgia. After years of pursuit, which included pastoring a Pentecostal church and holding a prominent role in evangelical media ministry, Fr. Barnabas found the timeless truth he was searching for in the ancient faith of the Eastern Orthodox Church and decided to live out his faith daily by, what he calls, being “Orthodox on purpose.”
Hank and Fr. Barnabas are uniquely positioned to discuss the divisions between Eastern and Western Christianity and why it is critical for Christians everywhere to embrace the doctrine of unity taught in the Lord’s high priestly prayer in the face of deeply entrenched tribalism inside and outside of the church today.
