I want to draw your attention to a wonderful article on Fr. Stephen's blog entitled "Are You Saved."
It has generated quite a discussion and I find the talk about the Orthodox view of salvation very encouraging.
The contemporary reduction of all things theological to the size of a bumper sticker creates so many problems for us. This reduction, all in the name of simplicity, has so stripped the Christian message of meat as to leave nothing left but the memories of past glory. We must reject the temptation to minimize our theology.
It is difficult and it is hard and it is dangerous, but this theology is the ultimate human work, so it should be challenging. Let's do the work, folks.
Please stop by and learn.
