I was searching on the web recently for more of His Holiness' books, and found (edit
: link edited out). I know the site hosting the document considers us monophysites (which is false and I do see quite a few basic errors in this document on our standpoint).
It is all about that Christ had two Natures in one person, which is not (I'm not sure about this so please correct me if I'm wrong
) the Oriental Orthodox belief of miaphysitism. I didn't read the whole thing, but this is what I gathered. The Eastern Orthodox believe in 2 natures in one hypostasis while we believe in one united nature in one hypostasis (this one nature is a united nature of the Divine and human nature without confusion without mingling and without alteration). Also where does the Eastern Orthodox term "in thought alone" fit in.
Also I found it disturbing that the Patriarch Timothy considered a saint in our church wrote this:
"Cyril... having excellently articulated the wise proclamation of Orthodoxy, showed himself to be fickle and is to be censured for teaching contrary doctrine: after previously proposing that we should speak of one nature of God the Word, he destroyed the dogma that he had formulated and is caught professing two Natures of Christ" [Timothy Ailouros, "Epistles to Kalonymos," Patrologia Graeca, Vol LXXXVI, Col. 276; quoted in The Non Chalcedonian Heretics, p. 13]."
Is there an explanation behind some of this. I think I just got 10 times as confused as I was before. Any answers or explanations on the document and the miaphysite vs. dyophysite controversy would be really welcome.
Thank you and Please pray for me.
