Answer by bunnielove89
“The main difference between Eastern-Rite and Western-Rite Orthodoxy is culture based. In the Eastern part of the world, the main cultures we see in Orthodoxy are found in Russia, Greece, and the Arabs. In the Western part of the world, the main cultures we see in Orthodoxy are found in America and Europe. Each region, and each country, that finds itself holding fast to the Orthodox Christian Faith is in full communion with eachother on a Theological level. The culture may be different, and the leaders and administration may also be different; but the Faith and the teachings are the same. We all recognize the same saints, say the same prayers, and teach the same traditions and teachings handed down to us by Jesus Christ and His Apostles.”

^That is a quote from the source in the link. Personally I have no idea though =D

Question by Leonard K: Can the Eastern Orthodox Church be considered genuine Christianity?
These ancient churches in the East may have a lot of history, but they seem to be full of mysticism and rituals. Iconography, rituals, incense, dominate. Salvation is attained by the “Sacred Mysteries rituals”. Strange doctrines like theosis – where man becomes like God, which sounds Mormonish. They may trace their history to Bible times but they don’t seem biblical. what do you think?

I’ve always found the Orthodox Church to follow the Bible a lot better than Protestant Churches.

Matt Latourelle excels in his presentation of the Christian views of devout CS Lewis of Chronicles of Narnia fame in distinction to the highly inclusivistic, even gnostic views of John Hick with his idea that all are on their way working towards salvation, whatever their religion. A must see! I think Latourelle makes his case that Hick is not a Christian in the classic, orthodox and standard way most understand this term.

Answer by yuuhthatsmee
well from what i know Orthodox Christianity doesn’t agree with Gnosticism because they often have different views on what happened to Jesus and his teachings. Gnosticism has a more mystical approach to things and orthodox doesn’t like it.
for example: Gnostics believe Jesus survived the Crucifixion and that he wasn’t literally god but he was just like an ascended master.
