Are there any knowledgeable Oriental Orthodox Christians willing to correspond with me in private messages about your communion of churches? It's so hard to find material on what I want to know.

Specifically, since we can't do EO vs. OO debates I can't find a good argument for why the OO could be the true church, which is what I would like to correspond about in private messages.

If anyone would be willing or could point me to some public resources, that would great. Thank you Smiley

We can. We just have a private EO/OO discussion forum for that. You can PM a moderator for access.

Ryan,

The private forum is a place where the discussions often degenerate into contentious arguments.  If what you are looking for is a knowledgeable OO with whom to discuss the OO Church and her beliefs, then your best bet is to have a private e-mail converstation with Fr. Peter.

If you want to have access to the private forum, though, then you can pm Fr. George and ask him for admission.  PeterTheAleut, like myself, does not have the ability to let you in.

Yea, I already have started Emailing him. I also have sent a private message to Fr. George about the private forums (PeterTheAleut told me to). The problem is, I can't even find contentious arguments about this situation. So it would be nice to simply view these arguments.

Thanks Smiley

You may change your mind after reading some of them.   Cheesy

The discussions really do get very nasty.  Just don't let it get to you.
