Dear all,

By creating the above poll, I do not intend to imply that it is theologically proper that the above-listed mysteries be ranked in the first place, but there is a practical purpose for me asking what I ask.

I would appreciate it if people withhold from posting any comments for at least 10 days subsequent to the creation of this thread, upon which the poll will expire. I am sure that there is much to be said about the answers one might give, and the legitimacy of the question posed in the first place, but I would rather that people's votes not be influenced by others' comments.

Thanks in advance!

I would say that MY answer would have to be Christ's Crucifixion. That WAS the ultimate redemption, so says scripture.

"Even as the Son of man is not come to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a redemption for many."- Matt 20:28

"In whom we have redemption through his blood, the remission of sins, according to the riches of his grace"- Ephesians 1:7

"Neither by the blood of goats, or of calves, but by his own blood, entered once into the holies, having obtained eternal redemption."- Hebrews 9:12

"The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman. It isn't non-denominational - it is pre-denominational. It has believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost."
