I see you are a Coptic Christian. One of your Metropolitans has expressed a negative view of the salvation of Protestants
Dear all, Peace and grace be with your spirit,
Not only HE Metropolitan Bishoy but also HH Pope Shenouda III has expressed Orthodox teachings towards heretics and protestant sects. In HH books regarding the "Heresy of salvation in a moment" HH clearly denounces the whole protestant ethos that salvation can come in an instant of an emotional "Jesus prayer" and HH book on the Priesthood 'clearly' affirms that protestants do not have Sacraments, no priesthood, no Eucharist etc and that these are the "means of grace" God effects for salvation. So I would say that the Orthodox understanding that there is "No salvation outside of the Ark of the Church" is well and truly upheld by the senior hierarchs of the blessed Coptic Orthodox Church.
Now in today's ecumenical minded west where clergymen have learned to hold their mouths or speak watered down double meaning gobbledegook so as to engender nice relations with both heretics and protestant sects, it should not come as a surprise to any Orthodox congregational member that there are still -some- Bishops of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church who speak exactly as it is and as they received from the Apostles of Christ.
As for the misuse of the term "do not judge, lest you yourself be judged" to which I reply with Christ's command "judge with righteous judgement" I refer the reader to the homily of St John Chrysostom "On Judging" in which he clearly and effectively elucidates the -orthodox- understanding of "Do not judge" as opposed to the -current protestant- use of it which seems to get bandied about a lot these days.
I find it ironic that so many are willing to -not judge righteously- the heresies of the Protestant sects which effectively attack Christ in the Sacraments but are willing to immediately -judge unrighteously- those hierarchs and Bishops who -do- proclaim Orthodox theology in this area and judge righteously that the Arianism, Nestorianism, Sabelliism and errors regarding the Christian priesthood and Orthodox Sacraments that are rife in -every- Protestant sect in one form or another (or all at the same time), a thing which St John Chrysostom denounces (that is attacking those above us in false judgement). I have attached links to the relevant sermon below some Biblical quotes.
Pray for me Christ's weakest servant.
24 Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.”
3What if some did not have faith? Will their lack of faith nullify God's faithfulness? 4Not at all! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written:
"So that you may be proved right when you speak
and prevail when you judge."
1 Corinthians 6:1-3
1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints? 2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?
1 Corinthians 6:3-5
3 Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life? 4 If then you have judgments concerning things pertaining to this life, do you appoint those who are least esteemed by the church to judge? 5 I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you, not even one, who will be able to judge between his brethren?
