The Top 10 Orthodox Lies about Protestants.
1) Orthodox lie: "The word Protestant means a person who protests, and therefore as they protest about Orthodoxy and Catholicism, that means they both predate them, thus either the Orthodox or Catholics must be the original church not the Protestants."
answer: The word Protestant is rooted in two words "Pro" which means "for" and "Testant" which means "testimony", thus it means they are "For a Testimony". Jesus used this cluster of words many times by saying to his disciples "for a testimony unto them". Furthermore the entire underpinning concept of Evangelicalism and Protestantism is that it is they, (not the Orthodox nor the Catholics,) who are most like the early church. Furthermore it was the Catholics and Orthodox who later forced true Christian believers into hiding by threats of murder, imprisonment and victimization. By missing out the entire premise of what Protestants protest about when they do protest, that is that Orthodoxy is nothing like the early church, but the modern day Evangelical house group movement is identical to it, they cunningly try to turn protesting against them into an anachronism, which it is not.
2) Protestants do not have one universal Church -
answer - Protestant do have one church, defined by "all who are born again". The denominations we have are simply open and honest about divisions. Orthodoxy are dishonest about it. They have supermassive divisions but try to present a facade of "one chummy united church".
3) The church was not in the wilderness -
In Revelation 12 the bible cryptically says the church was to be driven out into the wilderness and persecuted by the devil (meaning the Orthodox and the Catholics were used by the devil) between the period of the ascension of Christ (the man child taken up to heaven) and the advent of the final Empire at the time of The End (Revelation 13 - the monster arising from the sea is the final Empire, see Daniel 7). The woman in Revelation 12 is clearly spiritual Israel, and Romans 11 says spiritual Israel is the church, the true church, Evangelicals.
Maximus the confessor had his tongue cut out and his hand cut off by this so called "church" that was persecuting Evangelicals. It shows how violent they were. Bloated by theological pride the sacerdotalist heretics that became the violent sects we see today in the Catholics and Orthodox, imagined themselves so great they would become one with God himself and developed the heresy of Theosis.
4) Having no salvation gospel is ok.
The Eastern Orthodox Church does not have "a gospel by which we are saved" .
