    The Lutheran Reformation was not a “revolt,” but rather an attempt by faithful believers to remove many false and misleading teachings found in the Roman Church, which, unfortunately, even to this day, obscures the glory and merit of Jesus Christ. The liturgy of the Church of South India combines many traditions, including that of the Methodists and such smaller churches as the Church of the Brethren and the Disciples of Christ.

It did not occur in orthodox Christianity in Russia or what was left of the Byzantine empire in Greece and it is difficult to find appropriate comparisons for it in the other advanced civilizations of Eurasia. It is called the protestant reformation and it was initially an attempt to reform the traditional 'fabric' of the western church.

    An Orthodox Assessment This is a reposting of an article I wrote in with a few minor updating. One notable addition is my assessment of “A Reforming Catholic Confession” which was just released today. On 31 October , Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the door of Castle Church (Wittenberg, Germany) sparking a huge theological debate that would radically alter the religious. The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church was administratively part of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria from the first half of the 4th century until , when it was granted its own patriarch by Cyril VI, Pope of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria.

[Nils Ehrenström;]. The Orthodox Church and the Churches of the Reformation. A Survey of Orthodox-Protestant Dialogues, WCC Item Preview.

As an introduction to the Orthodox Church, to its history, theology and rituals, this book is concise, informative, and clearly written.

The author is a convert from the Anglican Church, one who eventually became an orthodox bishop and who therefore has a deep understanding of both traditions/5. Rather, there were three categories: books to be read in the churches, books to be read in the home, and books not to be read.

This argument therefore is not to attack Revelation as heretical or false, but only to argue that in the Orthodox Church it has.

Early Lutherans and the Greek Church October 3, Octo Fr. John W. Fenton Editor’s Note: This article is part of an October series of posts on the Reformation and Protestantism written by O&H authors and guest writers marking the th anniversary of the nailing of Martin Luther’s 95 theses to the church door at.

The th anniversary of the Reformation provides an occasion for assessing Eastern Orthodox and Protestant attempts at unity on the key Reformation doctrine of justification by faith alone (sola fide). Is a consensus possible between the Reformers and the Orthodox Church on Author: Bradley Nassif.

Luther was generally positive toward the Eastern Orthodox church, especially because it rejected many of the things he most disliked about the Roman Catholic church: clerical celibacy, papal. This is a modern classic about the history, doctrine, and sacraments of the Orthodox Church.

Its updated version is a carefully nuanced book that is written for the general : Bradley Nassif. Actually, the two Churches do not share the same faith and either the one or the other is heretical.

This book is decidedly in the Orthodox camp and is written from that perspective. Whether you are Orthodox or Roman Catholic this primer is a great contribution to the study and understanding of two of the oldest Churches in Christianity/5(29).

The admission of the Eastern Orthodox churches clearly shows that the WCC is not a “Reformation” council. Indeed, the Reformation-principle is permanently under pressure, for the Orthodox. In the Orthodox Church, the book of Revelation has great liturgical significance.

The worship of the Church has traditionally, quite consciously, been patterned after the divine and eternal realities revealed in this book. The prayer of the Church and its mystical celebration are one with the prayer and celebration of the kingdom of heaven.

Luther Had His Chance. It was inevitable that, sooner or later, the Protestant Churches, protesting against Roman autocracy, should seek to find out about a Church which had made such a protest from the earliest times. The Mar Thoma church has its origins in a reformation movement in the Malankara Church, in the latter half of the nineteenth century.

India was part of the British Empire at the time and the Malankara Church with its Oriental Orthodox traditions, under the Syriac Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch.

AD: At the Council of Florence, the entire Church recognized the 27 books. This council confirmed the Roman Catholic Canon of the Bible which Pope Damasus I had published a thousand years earlier. So, byall orthodox branches of the Church were legally bound to the same canon.

This is years before the Reformation. The Anglican Orthodox Church is for people of like minds with the Anglican tradition of the English Reformation, especially as reflected by the Holy Bible, the Book of Common Prayer, the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion, the Homilies, and liturgy of the Anglican Orthodox Church, Statesville, NC.

The Third Assembly of the World Council of Churches in New Delhi voted overwhelmingly, on 30 Novemberto accept this church's application for membership. During the reformation there was correspondence between Protestant theologians and the Orthodox churches. For example, in Philip Melancthon wrote a circular letter indicating that he had sent a Greek translation of the Confession of Augsburg to the Patriarch of the Byzantine church.

The Orthodox Church in America. The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit ”.The center of the Orthodox Church since the foundation of the Byzantine Empire of Constantine the Great in A.D, has been the great Church of St.
