I agree with Christ that whoever isn't against us is with us.

Peace.

That has to be taken with the verse in Revelation that if you are not actively for him, you are spit out as lukewarm refuse.

Even if they are misguided in some respects, I would say that most Evangelical Protestants are actively with Christ.

I actually agree with you.

What if they knowingly and willingly reject Orthodoxy, especially on multiple occasions?

I know that it may sound harsh. Could you please think of a better way to request Protestants to not tell us how to interpret Scripture?

Peace.

As  a former prot. and am looking into orthodoxy, it seems that you asked him how to interpret scripture. Otherwise why would he tell you? If you asked then dont be mad he told you.

I did not ask, it was given without request.

What I've discovered is that the best way to deal with Protestantism is genuine kindness. If we discuss Orthodoxy with an good-natured heart, they are more likely to actually be interested in what we have to say.
