Obviously the FAITHFUL Orthodox are being saved. But i would like to know what percentage actually do the required daily worship, prayer, and meditation...
In other words, you'd like to have the power to place these on the left, and these on the right? Is that it? I'm sorry, but that's God's prerogative, not yours or mine or anyone else's.
Anyway, you presume too much in thinking that by seeing this person's prayer rule or that person's commitment to the fast or whatever, you can say "this person is saved" or "this person is not saved". If you are going to call yourself an ORIGINAL MONOTHEIST, why do you have this strangely Protestant notion of being able to classify people as saved or unsaved?
You know who is saved? The one who works out his salvation with fear and trembling, and does not slander his brothers and sisters, but looks first at his own faults and admits that he has done nothing good before God. Abba Isaiah, Abba Moses, and the other monks of the desert taught me that. Humility
, they taught (and lived by example), is the greatest of all virtues. It is hard to be humbled when you say these are saved, these are not saved based on what you can observe them doing, as though we are Pharisees and we merely follow the external law and preform the actions and this is it. Christianity, love it or hate it, is balanced in its external and internal life in ways that the religions and obscure Jewish sects you are fetishizing are not. Since you cannot know the soul of another, why play judge, jury, and executioner? Isn't that a great folly?
