You wouldn't know anything about jesus without the bible. You colorado cooks are out to dismantle the bible through your progressive liberal agenda.
*kook, unless you really did mean "cook"
*is it a "progressive, liberal" agenda or specifically "progressive liberal?"
I'm an inquirer into the Eastern Orthodox Church, and I feel Brad Jersak misrepresents the teachings of the Orthodox Church.
Mr. Jersak speaks as "the" authority on the Eastern Church, but he isn't. Jersak often quotes Origen and Gregory of Nyssa to support his positions, but there are many other Patristic writings besides Origen and Gregory of Nyssa that disagree with Universalism. After all Universalism was condemned by the Church as heresy at the 5th ecemunical council.
Thanks for the comment! Be on the lookout for our interview with EO David Bentley Hart. I think you'll love it :) Cheers!
