A Generous Orthodoxy

a generous orthodoxy
John's latest post raises interesting points.
Firstly, the RC belief in the Immaculate Conception is not based on a false Gospel, but rather it is based on a misconception (pardon the intentional pun!) of a part of the Gospel, namely believing that Mary was conceived in a manner similar to Christ, whereas she was conceived in a manner similar to Old Testament patriarchs' wives.
It is possible to say that Anglicans preach a perversion of the Gospel just as it is also possible to say that Anglicans preach a correct Gospel because Anglicans are allowed to believe whatever thay want. It is perfectly possible, for example, for one Anglican to deny the Virgin Birth of Christ, whilst another accepts it.
The EO do not preach a false Gospel. The problem is that many of them practise a perversion of the Gospel in their attitude to other Christians.
As to "protestants", the name is too wide to acquire a precise answer. Do we mean the TV Evangelists in the USA who support wars, confuse, perhaps deliberately, the term 'faith' with 'belief' and attempt to use the Apocalypse of St John as a form of Nostradamus' prophecies? Clearly they are preaching a perversion.
Ecumenism is a reaching out to all Christians based on Christ's Commandments. Differences, perversions, misconceptions can only be truly exposed in an atmosphere of love and prayer, otherwise it becomes just another polemical, intellectual exercise which will only cause further strife and division.
