This category is for articles regarding those religious groups—not individual persons—which are not Orthodox Christian. (See Category:Heresies for ancient and modern heresies from Church history.)
From the OrthodoxWiki:Style Manual: "Articles below Non-Orthodox Christian religious groups, while necessarily including some general description of those groups, should have as their primary content the relationship and history of that group in relation to the Orthodox Church." Among other things, those could include:
- information which would help for Orthodox Christians (who are not necessarily theologically trained) evaluate an particular group from an Orthodox perspective.
- an account of the history of relations between that religious group or the Orthodox churches (e.g. out of the history of the Anglican Church the Fellowship of St. Alban or St. Sergius should be mentioned as well as the interaction of St. Raphael Hawaweeny with the Episcopal Church U.S.A.
Note: Many jurisdictions make a canonical distinction (esp. with regard to baptismal practice) between those groups which acknowledge the authority of Holy Scripture and hold to an essentially Orthodox Christology (generally speaking this would include Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Methodists, free-church Evangelicals, and Charismatics) and those groups which have more in common with ancient heresies than traditional Christianity (Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, etc.).
