    What position does the Roman Catholic church take against orthodoxy? Do they think the orthodox are heretics as they think protestants are? I am talking about the official church stance and not the stance taken by individuals within the church.

    Pray to the Saints....confusion in orthodoxy?

    I believe in intercessory prayer.....BUT.....why is the bible completely silent on this subject of praying to saints to ask their help . In the book of Revelation we read about the saints (Christians) on earth praying to God. The incense that is offered to God by the angel and the elders...

    What is the orthodox opinion of the fate of those that have not had the chance to hear the gospel and to be a part of the body of Christ?
