And we are out on the sidelines and we don't think that either of you are heretics, and we just want the arguing to stop and the peace to begin.
Who is the "we" that you have chosen to speak for?
I would assume the Oriental Orthodox, but I am not so sure that all of the Oriental Churches share your "beliefs", especially in regards to Roman Catholicism and whether or not it is heretical.
Insofar as stopping the "arguing" and for the "peace to begin", it has been going on for quite some time now and I don't believe that any of the Churches are just going to all get together and have a happy family reunion at the drop of a hat because that is what you think it would take.
During this unfortunate time where the Churches have been seperated, some bad blood has unfortunatley been built up, and things have been done and said by all sides, so it is going to take plenty of time and prayer for all the wounds to be healed.
What I would really like is for an EO member of this board to defend Chalcedon, not just by saying "This is what my church believes and therefore it is true" but by actually sharing well-developed personal resaons why we should accept Chalcedon.
I also would like someone to explain how believing that Jesus is of two natures instead of one nature that is both fully divine and fully human is not dualism.
I think if this was to happen, it should happen in another part of the forum, because I don't think that it would be appropriate to place to post reasons why the Oriental Orthodox should accept Chalcedon in a section of the forum where our Oriental Orthodox brethren can take refuge from that sort of thing.
You may wish to start a new topic in another part of this forum.
PS- I would very much like for this thread to stay with it's original intent, so I hope people don't start posting to try to turn this into some kind of Eastern vs. Oriental war. We have been there and done that people, so let's not resort to that.
The above is how I taken from my original post which started this thread, and I think your requests to "prove Chalcedon was correct" and that Jesus had two natures is an attempt to take this thread off track and the consequences of people providing you with answers to your requests may bring a negative aspect to this thread which it did not have previously.
And please refrain from calling us "monophysite" because that really is nothing more than a strawman. We are miaphysites, and there is a difference.
I've yet to see anyone do this yet and if they decide to do something that silly then I am sure that Antonius and Mor will take care of business.
