Orthodox and X
« on: February 12, 2012, 06:39:37 PM »
I think it is against canon law to be both Orthodox and a Mason, or Orthodox and Jewish. Are there canon laws against being both Orthodox and Muslim? Or Orthodox and, say, Confucian?

Man, I hope not . . .
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

 I guess my first question would be why would you want to pursue this course?  How on earth would that help you with theosis?  Secondly, how could you reconcile the differences between Christianity and Islam?   Put simply, there is no possible way to do this (regardless of what some rogue Anglican priestess says) as the two are vastly contradictory, incongruent, and mutually incompatible with one another.   I don't know too much about Confucianism, but from what I understand is that it's more of political/ethical weltanschuaang and wouldn't necessarily hinder your theosis, but then again, I don't think it's going to aid you too much either. 

 A cafeteria approach to religion is, IMO, a case in point of immaturity and naivite and a sure-fire path to cognitive dissonance.

Taking your posts seriously like I always do and not wanting to read the yeshuaisiam thread again, I would bet my savings on no to Muslims and I wouldn't make the same bet on Confucianism without knowing the precise rules of the game.
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

The Church made it a point early on to explicitly reject combining Christianity with Jewish practices. Since Islam and Orthodoxy have also existed side by side, it seems possible that explicit rejections of combining Christianity with Islamic practices might also have become part of canon law.

When somebody converts from Islam to Orthodoxy, the person has to directly reject Mohomet and his teachings.

Do you mean, the convert has to explicitly say "I reject Muhammad" or something similar?

Yes, exactly.

In the service book of the Holy Orthodox Catholic Apostolic Church by Isabel Florence Hapgood on PAGE 468 it reads:

"The mahomentan renounceth: The Mahometan faith, and its Sophistries; Mahomet, as being a false prophet; the Koran and all false legends, laws and traditions therein contained; the pilgrimage to Mecca for worship, as salutary to the soul; the inculcation of polygamy in this life, and the teaching as to sensual pleasures in Paradise; and the blasphemies which Mahometans utter touching Christ our Saviour, his most holy Mother, and Christians.

Forgive me I obviously understated what I said in the previous post.  You basically reject EVERYTHING Muslim AUDIBLY where the priest hears it and if present witnesses.

(Heh you should see the Roman Catholic renouncement!!!!!!)
