Orthodox definition

Orthodox means literally "true faith" and members of the Eastern Orthodox Church usually refer to themselves as simply Orthodox.
Orthodox means "conforming to the usual beliefs or established doctrines." The Greek Orthodox Church does not now use, nor has it ever used musical instruments in its worship. The use of instruments in worship does not appear in any of their liturgies either ancient or modern. This shows that the early church doctrine was to sing without instruments, otherwise it seems likely that the Orthodox Church would have been using them at the time of the division from the Roman church, and would have used them all along. (By the way, this also shows that the Greek words psallo and psalmos are understood by these Greek-fluent Bible scholars not to require the use of an instrument in worship).
Orthodox means conforming to accepting faith

More Definitions of Orthodox

Orthodox means ‘right believing’.
Orthodox. – in this case – means “right thinking” about God's Word. It means, thinking about Scripture the way the Church first thought of it prior to the unhappy divisions in the 11th and 16th centuries!
Orthodox. Christendom. By “orthodox” he means all good conservative Christians: Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic or conservative Protestant. The particulars of denomination and theology concern him little here (an issue to which we shall return presently). Newly aggressive secularism should alert the church to its true peril. He traces the roots of our cultural crisis using metaphors of cultural decline (e.g. Ostrogoths, Visigoths and Vandals at the gates of Rome). Drawing loosely on analyses from both Radical Orthodoxy and Charles Taylor, he pins the inception of our present crisis on medieval nominalism’s critique of metaphysical realism, the idea that there is a way things really are. William of Ockham tried to preserve God’s freedom but actually opened the door to increasingly man-centred and constructivist ways of seeing the world that have landed us in radical individualism, the sexual revolution and gay marriage. It’s more complex, of course, but that’s the upshot: abandoning realism means abandoning spiritual sanity.
