So, I read this article about prohibited marriages in the Orthodox Church and I got a little surprised over this:

Quote
c. The non-Orthodox partner shall not be a member of the following churches or religions (these marriages are prohibited in the Eastern Orthodox Church):

(1) Assembly of God (2) Buddhism (i.e., a Buddhist) (3) Christian Scientist (4) Disciples of Christ (5) Members of any Far Eastern Religion (6) Hinduism (i.e., a Hindu) (7) Islam (i.e., Muslims) (8 Jehovah's Witness (9) Judaism (i.e., a Jew) (10) Mennonite (11) Mormon (also called "Latter Day Saints) (12) Any Non-Christian (13) Pentecostal (14) Quaker (15) Salvation Army (16) Seventh Day Adventist (17) Spiritualist (18) Swedenborgian (19) Unitarian (20) Cults or New Age movements.

I know that the Salvation Army is methodist and that we disagree on a lot of points with the Pentecostals, but as far as I know, they are both trinitarian. Or is it because they don't have a three-fold baptism?

That's the answer I've seen on this board before, anyway.

Salvation Army is a church in other countries? In Finland it is basically just an inter-denominational charity and missionary organization. AFAIK most of the members are Lutherans.

I thought so too, but it is a denomination, largely based on methodist teachings.

Mennonites are out, but Baptists are ok, even though Mennonites really hold a much more Apostolic view of Christianity? They believe in church hierarchy, sacraments, are not even opposed to the idea that the eucharist may be more than bread and wine. Their prayer books (another thing most Baptists would consider borderline satanic) are full of prayers indistinguishable from Orthodox prayers.

"These marriages are forbidden in the Orthodox Church." By whose authority? Did the bishops all get together in council and hammer out this list of forbidden marriages? Is this list just the rule of the blogger's bishop? Or is this list just a product of the blogger's opinion? AISI, such a list as this would be up to the jurisdiction of each bishop within his own diocese and may therefore vary from bishop to bishop.

BTW, many Pentecostal churches are actually modalist in their "trinitarian" theology.

Any Modalist would be not only excommunicated but probably actually condemned to Hell in every Pentecostal parish I know.

Then you don't know many Pentecostal churches. I'm thinking of such Oneness Pentecostals as the United Pentecostal Church International.

Quote
Oneness Pentecostals and Modalists dispute the traditional Trinitarian doctrine, while affirming the Christian doctrine of God taking on flesh as Jesus Christ. Like Trinitarians, Oneness adherents believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. However, whereas Trinitarians believe that "God the Son", the eternal second person of the Trinity, became man, Oneness adherents hold that the one and only true God—who manifests himself in any way he chooses, including as Father, Son and Holy Spirit—became man. Oneness Pentecostals and other modalists are regarded by Catholic, Orthodox, and some other mainstream Christians as heretical for rejecting the Trinity Doctrine, which they regard as equivalent to Unitarianism.

Wonder why the Assembly of God is specifically listed since Pentecostal is also listed?

Some Pentecostals are Trinitarian, but others are Oneness (in various forms). I've met a number of modalist Pentecostals. They're just so disorganized, it's hard to tell what anyone means when they identify (or even talk about) "Pentecostals."

As for the Sallies (Salvation Army), they are not generally considered Christians, as they practice no sacraments, even Baptism and the Lord's Supper are not conducted by them in any way.

The OP also listed the AoG. Honestly, I'm not sure why they're listed separately. I usually think of them as Pentecostals. I'm also not sure why Baptists didn't make it on here. I've certainly heard them mentioned in the same breath as these other groups before.

It's my assumption that this list is from a bishop somewhere, as Mr. Sanidopoulos is quite trustworthy and well-researched. I would guess,  however, that this list does vary somewhat from diocese to diocese, or at least jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

My father was a Pentecostal elder and now he is a pastor. I do know lots of Pentecostal churches. Modalist Pentecostalism is a weird offshoot and not really representative of Pentecostalism.

I'd agree that they're a weird offshoot, but it also seems that they are growing.

Maybe if we're going the "every bishopric contains the fullness of the faith" argument.  Otherwise, I think it's relatively easy to identify non-Christian or typically non-Trinitarian traditions or practices (which seems to be a near-universal criteria for non-Orthodox marriage dispensation).  I would think that if a Pentecostal or Salvation Armyer could provide evidence of a Trinitarian baptism/christening, them being broadly identified on this guideline list wouldn't matter.  Maybe the "These marriages are forbidden..." comment should've had a generally qualifier or further explanation.

I think some Pentacostals baptise "In the Name of Jesus" too, rather than the Trinitarian formula. I suppose the diversity within the movement would make it difficult for an Orthodox priest, and sometimes even the Pentecostal person themselves, to be certain about these details.

Only personal experience. The triggers appear rather quickly, and the gleam about the eyes is frankly scary.

I don't know. What IS representative of Pentecostalism? How do you define Pentecostalism? How does this list of forbidden marriages define "Pentecostal"?

Well in that case, how come Evangelicals aren't on that list? Most of them don't believe marriage to be a Sacrament either.

Evangelical is not a specific denomination, like most of the ones listed.  You can be an Evangelical Lutheran, for instance.

A fair bit. If it was just over the internet, I wouldn't even count it. But meeting the same attitude in meatspace was... frightening.

A fair bit? How many Evangelicals have you known? How many different Evangelical churches have you visited? Who do you even count as being an Evangelical?

Are we playing 'stand up and be counted' here? I've been actively harassed by them (they call it 'witnessing'). Almost physically restrained from exiting a venue where an impromptu meeting was thrown together. You couldn't pay me to visit one of their churches.

Yes, I understand that the bigger the jackass, the louder the bray, but in none of those occasions did anyone saner step up to rein in said bigger jackasses. They may have been afraid of being kicked.

You can't spell PeterTheAleut without "trap"!  (Well, without those letters, anyway)

But back to evangelicals. Christianity is like a sports league with 30 teams. And Evangelicals are like the team in 30th place. It's easy to pick on them and poke at them. Showing their weaknesses is like shooting fish in a barrel... But can't we just pity them and leave them alone?  angel

Yes, I see that you've had a rather negative experience with one or maybe two Evangelical groups, but I don't think it possible or wise to make such broad generalizations as you make from just the few experiences you've had.

I'm open to being proven wrong. But, given the circumstances, that would have to be over the internet. Cheesy

No one can prove your experiences wrong, but it is possible for you to refrain from making such hasty generalizations from your personal experiences, generalizations I often think needlessly insulting and detrimental to fruitful conversation.

If only you could be that blessed.  Would you then become a twice removed Messianic Jew?

Twice removed?  Huh

Maybe the marriage would make you a third-class Messianic Jew [akin to the RC relic classification system]? 

I'll stop while I'm behind.

BTW, many Pentecostal churches are actually modalist in their "trinitarian" theology.

Any Modalist would be not only excommunicated but probably actually condemned to Hell in every Pentecostal parish I know.

Some Pentecostals are Trinitarian, but others are Oneness (in various forms). I've met a number of modalist Pentecostals. They're just so disorganized, it's hard to tell what anyone means when they identify (or even talk about) "Pentecostals."

As for the Sallies (Salvation Army), they are not generally considered Christians, as they practice no sacraments, even Baptism and the Lord's Supper are not conducted by them in any way.

The OP also listed the AoG. Honestly, I'm not sure why they're listed separately. I usually think of them as Pentecostals. I'm also not sure why Baptists didn't make it on here. I've certainly heard them mentioned in the same breath as these other groups before.

It's my assumption that this list is from a bishop somewhere, as Mr. Sanidopoulos is quite trustworthy and well-researched. I would guess,  however, that this list does vary somewhat from diocese to diocese, or at least jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
I've seen a number of such lists, and this one has the usual suspects (though it is redundant in some places-perhaps to be clear).

How did Discples of Christ get on the list? 
Form of baptism, IIRC.  One immersion, "in the Name of Jesus."

Btw, this is one of complaints (and betrays the Protestantism of the script writer) of "The Bible" recent series.  No Trinitarian baptisms.
