    Honestly, I don't know how much it matters, at least with respect to the life of the Church.

    Marriages could still be perpetual with the remarriage of widows being economic.

    Where does the Orthodox Church stand on divorce and remarriage?

    There is quite a spectrum of policies from the Coptic church only allowing divorce in the case of adultery (strictly, like not even allowing women who are being physically abused to divorce) to some Byzantine dioceses which will allow beyond 3 marriages and will allow widowed Priests to be...

    Will and the Causation of Hypostases in the Trinity

    I think that if we can't in some sense speak about general truths about the nature of God then essentially revelation as a whole must be thrown out the window.

    Will and the Causation of Hypostases in the Trinity

    Most people who take issue with what I have said gravitate towards greater emphasis on the intrinsic nature of the Trinity. They take issue with some of the ideas I used such as "choice", "voluntary", "act", "willful", and "consequence". I think there are basically two parties that debate each...

    Will and the Causation of Hypostases in the Trinity

    OK. I would say that to generate other subjects out of love is the natural will of the Father. His nature leads Him to desire to do so and as a consequence of the experience of this desire He chooses (no, not in a deliberative, uncertain, "gnomic" way) to eternally Beget the Son and Breathe the...

    Will and the Causation of Hypostases in the Trinity

    So are you interested in mere theological opinions here?

    Will and the Causation of Hypostases in the Trinity

    There is a far amount of debate about this issue, actually, so if you really want an answer I think you're going to have to settle with lacking a consistent collective one.

    Is Peter "the Fuller" of Antioch an OO Saint?

    I believe that he is on the Aramaean Orthodox calendar of Saints, but I'm not sure.

    Orthodoxy and the Sabbath

    You seem confused here. Volnutt said that the Orthodox do not accept the RC/Protestant teaching that Sunday is the Sabbath. Then Shanghaiski contradicted him and said that the dignity of the Sabbath was transferred to Sunday. Then Volnutt objected and stated that his understanding came from...

    It is hard to come to the Church established by Jesus

    Bah. In that respect I am on drugs. But I was referring to heavier more perception altering drugs.

    Is Christ's Human Nature Created?

    That is a heresy.

    Is Christ's Human Nature Created?

    With respect to the overall being of the Incarnate Word, no, it is not appropriate to say that He was created, as He was before His flesh. But, it is accurate to say that His flesh was created, as He took is from a created being (Mary). Furthermore, He must have had a created human soul for...
