Do fix the service books, as I don't see the difference for reception of "Anglican converts" from reception of "Continuing converts" in them.
Distinction without a difference for
I fixed that for you
Well that's an interesting argument. So if I can find situations where the method of reception is the same for various forms of heresy, schism and division in the Church, then according to your argument, I should equate the heresies, schisms or divisions as being the same because the method of reception is the same. So, there really is no difference between, say, Catholics and Anglicans, if my jurisdiction happens to receive them in the same way?
As I understood it the reception of a Roman Catholic 'is' different than that of say a Baptist or an Anglican. We are to deny certain errors of our prospective traditions... Is this not correct? This is what was outlined to me by an OCA Parish Priest.
Well, I was just using that as an example, but you make a good point. I suppose I could have said Anglicans and some other group. My point, of course, was that there are countless different Christian religious groups, and Orthodox jurisdictions don't do in-depth analyses about each of 10,000* different groups and form different methods for receiving all 10,000. Receiving two groups in the same way doesn't give one the right to assume that they must be the same in belief/practice, and frankly it's silly to imply that it does. But to answer your question, I think you are correct, and I probably should not
have said Anglican/Catholic, because the method for Catholics probably is a bit different in that they have to deny certain beliefs like that someone that was an Anglican wouldn't. Someone who recently converted from Catholicism would probably have a better idea of what exactly must be rejected (filioque, papal supremacy and infalliblity perhaps?)
