Protestant Polemics
==Protestant Polemics==
The difficulty with most of these sites is not that they are not criticizing [[Orthodox Christianity]] as it is but rather basing their critiques on misconceptions of Orthodox doctrine and practice. Sometimes elements of Orthodox teaching can be recognized, but the way they are put together is often quite bizarre. [[Irenaeus of Lyons]] wrote about how [[heretic]]s took elements of the faith and rearranged them, so that what once was a mosaic of a king becomes an image of a dog (or something else).
One significant exception is [[Daniel Clendenin]], whom many Orthodox Christians respect for being much more thorough in his research. In that, he is relatively unique among modern critics of Orthodoxy.
