I often chose best answers not because they are the best, but because I have to choose a best answer. Please, don't take offense to it.

"That being the case, in the Orthodox view Luther was already in a church that had lost its apostolic succession" - Kyralessa are you sure? According to my knowledge, the Eastern Orthodox Church still recognizes that Roman Catholic Church still possesses the apostolic succession - despite the schism - but it doesn't recognize the same thing in the regard of the Protestant Church.

comment What “new-to-protestants” things has the Eastern Orthodox Church acquired with time?
@DanO'Day - My question is about what kind of things the main-stream protestantism sees as new in the today's Eastern Orthodox Church. We know, for example, that the "Sola Scriptura" principle that was put forth by the Protestants has been deemed as something new by both the Roman Catholic and the Eastern Orthodox Churches (meaning that originally there was no such thing as "Sola Scriptura" in the early Church of the time of the 12 apostles). So, here is the question about some such new things (as Protestant would deem them) in the Eastern Orthodox Church today.

Thanks. How officially his heresy was named at that time? Was there any reason for excommunication officially pronouncedly the Roman Catholic Church?

What is the "formal recognition of sainthood" in your answer? Can you, please, elaborate?

"protestants also reject the divinity of Mary" - Do the Orthodox recognize the divinity of Mary?

@MarcGravell - Marc, I don't quite understand your point here.

comment Why does the Old Testament never mention unclean spirits and demon-posessed people?
Yes, but that's about only one harmful spirit, but my guess is that his question was about many. Unlike in the O.T., we see a great number of demon-possessed people in the N.T.

comment How did the practice of soliciting the prayers of dead saints originate?
@AmbroseH - "However, some verses come to mind: Rev. 6:9--11, 7:13-15..." - Where in those verses are they praying for us? In Rev. 6 they are in fact praying about themselves - about avenging their blood to those who have killed them; in Rev. 7 they are serving God in His temple. Where in those verses it is said that they are praying for us?

comment What Biblical support for praying to the saints is usually cited by those Christians who practice that?
@cwallenpoole - Perhaps, I wasn't clear enough in the way I formulated my question, but I was requesting Biblical support for the practice of praying to the saints, not the Biblical support for the fact that those saints can still pray to God even after their physical death. As far as I can see, all the references that you have cited here are pointing to the fact that the dead saints, as well as some angels, can still pray to God. However, your refrences say nothing about the living believers praying to them.
