Orthodox Missionary discusses with local Jehovah’s Witnesses.

In the parish house of the church of the Holy Trinity on Phuket an Orthodox missionary had a discussion with the followers of the Jehovah's Witnesses who made a visit. Speaking for the Orthodox position was the former instructor of St. Herman’s Seminary in Alaska (USA), graduate from St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Seminary in Pennsylvania, Paul Sidebottom. Years ago, he too had converted from Protestantism to Orthodoxy so he was well acquainted with the Protestant perspective concerning Orthodoxy and he elucidated any confusion. The discussion of Orthodoxy, specifically considered a number of Scriptural texts and church history.

Next Paul Sidebottom and missionary Roman Bychkov, serving the Holy Trinity parish, invited guests to the temple, where they discussed several aspects of the Orthodox Church including the veneration of holy icons and the Cross of Christ. They specifically explained that Orthodox worship is fully in compliance with Sacred Scripture and Traditions. In conclusion the Orthodox missionaries gave the Jehovah's Witnesses "The Law of God" by Fr. Seraphim in the Thai language.
