This is my first post on here so bare with me :)
I'm in the process of converting to Orthodoxy from Roman Catholicism through the Antiochians (getting chrismated next month). I had a question about Oriental (more so Coptic) & Eastern Orthodox theology.
Coming from Catholicism I could tell that the theology and worship between the RCC & EO was obviously different. I cant say the same about the Copts and the Eastern. I went to a Coptic parish near me last week for the first time and go t a chance to speak with the priest as well as some other folks (awesome btw), and I really could not tell any difference between them and the Antiochian parish I attend. I asked about the Mono/Mya deal and they said its just a misunderstanding.
I guess my main question would be, why are we not one? Why don't the Greek and Coptic patriarchates of Alexandria merge?
