The Roman Catholic Church does not name Transubstantiation as a Sacrament; rather, Transubstantiation is merely a Latin way of defining how the consecrated bread and wine of the Eucharist is the Body and Blood of Christ, a way of describing the Real Presence.

No, because transsubstantiation isn't a sacrament.

Ah, okay, I was referring to the consecrated Eucharist in the RCC.

Is the RCC's Eucharist a valid Sacrament (in the eyes of the EOC)?

It depends. I don't but some do. It doesn't really matter since we shouldn't partake in RC Eucharist.

IIRC they don't have any official viewpoint on it.

Why the different viewpoints? I thought all the Orthodox Churches (Greek, Russian, Ukrainian...etc) agree with each other on all issues.

Souvlaki and borscht have no connection with Christianity.

That post was about the different Orthodox Churches's view of doctrinal issues and religious matters. Souvlaki and borscht excluded here.

Shows how little you truly understand the Orthodox Church.

BTW, if you want to define as "all issues" all issues dogmatic, then please say so. Otherwise, "all issues" means everything, including whether to eat souvlaki or borscht.

Why should the EO have an official position on the RC Eucharist? Should they have an official position on the Lutheran and Anglican Eucharist as well?

The Orthodox agree on dogmatic matters. On non-dogmatic matters there is some leeway, as with practical matters. So far as I understand, up to this point God has chosen to let things remain muddy when it comes to things like the Catholics having grace-filled sacraments. My patron saint is turning over in his grave right now, but I think it's so. There simply is a difference of opinions (more than two, btw) on this subject.

Sorry, I haven't heard of souvlaki and borscht in the Orthodox Church.

I looked them up in a dictionary.

Souvlaki : Any of various Greek dishes made with lamb grilled on a skewer

Borscht : A Russian or Polish soup usually containing beet juice as a foundation


I fail to see how these are Sacraments. Please enlighten me.

What, precisely, is it that you want to learn?

Why don't you try some books first?  Or..attend Divine Liturgy and/or Mass and talk with a priest.  And read some books.

I was a spiritually dead Catholic for many years until a Protestant website opened the Gospel of Jesus to my eyes.

By all means, give me the website and I'll see if the Lord opens my mind to another point of view.

So if you're not a Protestant what are you? You clearly aren't a Roman Catholic or an Eastern Orthodox Christian.

I asked you the question based on what you shared of your point of view. Therefore, only an answer from you will satisfy the curiosity that prompted my question.

I'm not "officially" a Protestant.

I'll leave a protestant to answer your question there. Or perhaps I might answer it on a later date.

So if you're not a Protestant what are you? You clearly aren't a Roman Catholic or an Eastern Orthodox Christian.

Some would say yes, some would say no...

Why the different viewpoints? I thought all the Orthodox Churches (Greek, Russian, Ukrainian...etc) agree with each other on all issues.
Shows how little you truly understand the Orthodox Church.

Well, show me a website to hop around and learn some more.
Another website is not going to help you if you won't first open your mind to another point of view.

I was a spiritually dead Catholic for many years until a Protestant website opened the Gospel of Jesus to my eyes.

By all means, give me the website and I'll see if the Lord opens my mind to another point of view.
You're on a website where you can learn more about the Orthodox Church if only you will open your mind to what others here say and stop dodging those questions you find hard to answer.

I've lost track of what the question is... I think we answered the original one and have moved on, but I'm not sure what to...  :D ???
^ This.

It feels like we're all in a speeding Formula One car without a steering wheel. Nobody knows where we'll end up but we're going fast and everything is out of control.



The temptation to inject politics here is almost overwhelming  ;D ;D ;D.  But, with God's grace, I'll resist it.  ;)

Which doctrines do you reject, and why?  What is your authority for your rejection of them?

You know which Catholic doctrines are rejected by the EO and Protestants. Then why ask me?

So you only reject the doctrines of the Catholics that the EO reject? Doesn't that pretty much make you Eastern Orthodox?

So am I. I was baptised a few weeks or so after my birth so my being born-again followed pretty quickly on me being born.

Ah, well. Ask PeterTheAleut. He has questioned me about the Gospel that I have received on another thread, I gave him the answer and and he has verified that it is the right Gospel that I received. i.e, he did not find any problem with it.
