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.

I'm officially a "Catholic", but I disagree with Catholic doctrines (which are rejected by the Eastern Orthodox and Protestants).


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?

You said, "I'm officially a "Catholic", but I disagree with Catholic doctrines (which are rejected by the Eastern Orthodox and Protestants)."

I want to know, as a "born-again" Christian (I've never really figured out what that means, exactly, but that's not the question), which doctrines YOU reject and why?  And if you reject them, what is it you're looking for on this board?

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

That could be, but one more thing is that I hold to the Five Solas.

(Every "born-again" Christian I've ever come across means something slightly different than every other "born-again" Christian--but, like I said, that's not what's at question here.)

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.

I've done nothing on that other thread but question your understanding of the Gospel, so yes, I've had issues with your answers.

As to you putting words into my mouth, I will tell you what my words mean if you don't understand them correctly. It's not for you to tell me what my words mean then insist that you're right when I correct you. Simply put, I never verified that the Gospel you received is the right one. It's your overwhelming desire for confirmation of your point of view that has led you to see such verification in my responses.

Doctrinally Orthodoxy neither affirms nor denies grace in non-Orthodox sacraments. In practice many of them do recognize the Catholics' Eucharist (but are not allowed to receive it) as doctrinally Catholics do the Orthodox one (but are not normally allowed to receive it, but may ask the Orthodox if there's no Catholic priest; the Orthodox are supposed to say no).

Does the EOC accept the RCC's Transubstantiation as a valid Sacrament?

If not, why?

No, because transsubstantiation isn't a sacrament.

Okay, I was referring to the consecrated Eucharist in the RCC. Is it a valid Sacrament or not in the eyes of the EOC?

There are not sacraments outside the Orthodox Church. Also, we don't do "valid."

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

On dogma, praxis, and spirituality, yes. This is neither of those things.

Shows how little you truly understand the Orthodox Church.

Well, show me a website to hop around and learn some more.

Rather, go to your local Orthodox parish church for a couple years, meet the priest, befriend members of the congregation. Learn from Orthodoxy in its actual context. A website will not help you understand the Orthodox worldview any better than reading a book about a forest will make you listen to the songs of the birds, the sound of the wind on the leaves, give you the smell of the damp leaves or the taste of the berries.

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

On dogma, praxis, and spirituality, yes. This is neither of those things.

Come on, now, Shanghaiski....you're forgetting the Sacraments of Souvlaki and Borscht  Grin Grin.

Those do not exist outside the Orthodox Church either. Have you ever eaten the Turkish or Croatian equivalents? Yuck!

Oh, but they do...........they thrive with great abundance and exquisite deliciousness in the Eastern Catholic Church!  Cool

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.

Who told you you were spiritually dead? And why were you that way if you were that way?

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.

I'm officially a "Catholic", but I disagree with Catholic doctrines (which are rejected by the Eastern Orthodox and Protestants).


Maybe you could be more specific? There are Roman Catholic doctrinces accepted by the Orthodox (because they're Orthodox doctrines, too), and there are Roman Catholic doctrines accepted by Protestants but denied by Orthodox, because they're post-schism innovations or proceed from pre-schism exaggerations of the teachings of St. Augustine (for one). There are also Roman Catholic teachings which both Orthodox and Protestants reject, but sometimes in different significant ways.

I don't know if there is an authoritive teaching of the Church on it, but in my personal opinion, I do not think it is valid. The Eucharist is the ultimate symbol of unity--it is the glue that bonds us together as Orthodox Christians. It is how we are joined to Christ. There is only one Christ and that Christ is not divided, and there is only one proper faith about that Christ. I do not think that people who are not a part of the Church can legitimately prepare and receive the Eucharist and be united to Christ--that's a privilege and great responsibility that God has only bestowed upon us Orthodox Christians who adhere to the proper faith and have the authority via apostolic succession.

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?

That could be, but one more thing is that I hold to the Five Solas.
The ironic thing about sola scriptura is that it is not biblical.

Then you're neither Catholic nor Orthodox.  So...what *are* you looking for on this board?  Are you making a sincere inquiry into Orthodoxy?  Looking to find a way to return to the Catholic Church?  Or....?

I'm still in the Catholic Church. No intention of going to any other Church, because salvation comes by faith in Christ, not by which denomination we belong to.
Two things...A. we are not a denomination, and B. while it is fine that you continue going to Mass even if you disagree with the Catholic Church (though I cannot quite wrap my mind around why one would do such a thing), you should not be receiving the Eucharist if you reject multiple Catholic teachings.

I believe there is no official stand from the Orthodox Church.  Why do we need to worry about its validity when we don't partake of their Eucharist anyway?

As an outgoing Catholic, I personally believe that Christ is indeed in the Eucharist of the Catholic Church.  But that is my personal opinion.  I don't expect the Orthodox to agree with me.

If you ever feel like discussing what has been going on with you over the last three years, I would be interested in listening. As someone who is Catholic but kind of goes back and forth mentally (and perhaps spiritually) between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church, I would love to hear someone else's story. If you don't want to discuss it publicly you can shoot me a PM sometime.
