Top 160 Orthodox Heresies.
TOP 160. Church plus State Oppression.
152) Serfdom :
157) Ethno-Phyletism issues:
158) Movable doctrines (her ways are movable, you cannot know them)
159) Crusader Forgiveness: "All your sins will be forgiven if you go out on The Crusade"
160) The persecution of real Christians. by imprisonment, murder, torture and banishment of real Christians. (also sin of Anti-Protestantism)
151) The Canons of the Council of Nicea (325) (and other Creeds) contain much heresy, yet are treated as if on a par with scripture.
152) The church tradition (and thus infallible) that Cremation destroys the soul.
153) Orthodox Christian (or Christian) should or must be buried in consecrated ground - and that the definition of that is that it is consecrated by all their Babylonian rituals.
154) False man made burial rites of no importance - according to the Orthodox rites and service of burial (Nekrosimos). (anything about funerals is an emotive issue).
155) The (so called) Church may deny an burial on Orthodox land to those who have committed a sin such as blasphemy, suicide, denial of their faith etc. In other words refusing to bury a person if he became a real Christian (for instance). Pure heresy and manipulation. What is more - if they deny mortal sin or "works of the flesh" and all sin is the same, why forbid burial in this way?
156) The ovum of Mary must definitely have been used in Christ's conception - so far as I understand Orthodoxy insists that you must believe that the actual ovum of Mary was used in the conception of Christ ( the prophecy quoting thy "seed" does not necessarily mean "her ovum") and not that his conception was entirely miraculous but in her womb without the ovum used. I am not denying her ovum was used, but I do question forcing young believers to form a definite doctrine on this. To them it is an essential or more central issue as to them the hypostatic union heals corporate human nature. The belief that Mary's ovum must be used is of less controversy as they do not believe in original sin, (Catholics believe the conception of Mary herself was miraculous).
157) Beards and the clergy - so what are they actually saying? Only the clergy should have beards, or all Orthodox men? And is the old covenant law on beards still here, including not trimming the edges? It might be interesting to find out how many bishops of Rome had beards before the 1054 split. It is part of Messianic Judaism to keep these beard laws when the new testament calls the old law done away (2 Cor 3), and an emphasis on how the Orthodox have never understood the covenants of God.
158) The Authority to teach - Holy Spirit as our personal guide and teacher (Protestant / Evangelical) versus ordination.
159) Mystification of doctrine: - bible says to be clear.
160) The "laity" - Jesus says "you are all brethren". This is the root of Scofield's interpretation of Nicolaitan heresy which contains Nico - lording power over - laitan -the laity, The Orthodox often say this was a sex cult started by the Nicholas of the bible (more forgery of history by them).
