Coptic orthodoxy

hi danielm,

in the absence of someone more qualified than i to answer your query here are my brief thoughts on the matter...

firstly you should point this person to <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.orthodoxunity.org">www.orthodoxunity.org</a><!-- w --> where they will find various joint statements by bishops of both oriental and eastern orthodox traditions agreeing that both families of churches are properly orthodox, so this person is in contradiction of some his own bishops!

also i would like to say that it seems strange that it's always the eastern orthodox who claim that we're not orthodox and not the other way around... now, not that i'm suggesting that any of us would be that ungracious but surely who's orthodox and who isn't very much depends on which side of the divide you're sitting on Big Grin

christology is not my specialist subject and this was basically what the split was about along with some politics which i don't really understand so hopefully fr simon or fr peter or someone else will be able to further enlighten on this matter

neil
