Thanks Tovah. I appreciate your willingness to be transparent on this board.

I agree with you about post-Reformation ideas - I was born into them, & so I didn't question them until fairly recently.

I've also been fascinated with the differences between the West (Catholicism) & the East (Orthodoxy). All new to me as a recent believer of the Early Church.

This was the first time I'd heard of the following:
"Although there is a range of opinion within Orthodoxy on this, it is accepted within the faith to undertand Christ's saving grace as inclusivistic (for all of mankind) vs. exclusivistic. In other words, we all go into the same state of being when we die. For those who lived a life of love and caring, they will find being with God to be blissful. For those who lived a life of hatred, they will find being with God to be hellish. However we will all be with God, and we are not "saved" or "damned" according to what theology we chose in life."

Where did this doctrine originate? I'm curious, since I haven't read it in any of the Church Father's writings. Not wanting to start an argument here... just curious - I'm still learning.

Shalom, Dena
