As I said in other posts, I was raised Catholic. I was then given broad exposure to various Protestant sects. I then stayed away from church for about 30 years. I came back to church, going once again to Catholic Mass. I am now actively working to convert to Orthodoxy. I believe the Orthodox Church is the one true, original Church.
However, I will occasionally have a questions to ask as I go through this process. When I started attending Mass again, I began listening to Catholic radio stations. One term came up with noticeable frequency: "Sleeping Christians."
Another term that often came up was "Culture of death."
Is that strictly a Catholic term, does anyone know exactly what those refer to, and does the Orthodoxy use the same terms or perhaps other terms with the same meanings? I have vague ideas and not sure they're accurate, but I'm really curious to know if Orthodoxy uses those phrases as well. I'm looking for the significance of those phrases. I appreciate any info you guys might have. Thanx.
