Orthodox Christianity can be very hard to explain to Protestants or Roman Catholics. In some ways, the more conservative Protestant denominations have remained closer to Orthodoxy than has the Roman Catholic Church, which has meandered even further away since the schism. Even so, the difference between East and West are so great that many in the East consider Protestants and Roman Catholics to be two sides of the same coin.
The retired Orthodox bishop in this video demonstrates the difference between the Orthodox view of Christ’s sacrifice and how it is seen in Western Christianity. While his specific target is an address by a Southern Baptist, the same principles can be said in reply to Roman Catholics and to most other Protestants.
