orthopraxis

‘Right‐doing’, the complement of orthodoxy (cf. 1 John 2: 3–6). In Christianity right belief about Jesus must be validated by imitating Jesus, including his suffering (cf. Luke 9: 23). The condition of coming to the light is to do the works of God—a Johannine theme emphasized in modern liberation theology. It is often held that Judaism, which has no formal creeds, is a religion of orthopraxis—though it is interesting that traditional Jews are regularly described as ‘Orthodox’.
