hi, and i love your name ('i have sinned').
some of that article was good, eg:
"If we do not share St Isaac’s horror of an everlasting hell, then perhaps that says something very important about us. This, I suggest, is St Isaac’s unstated argument."
i think if we really love people, we will be horrified at the idea of them going to hell and we will work tirelessly towards their (and also our) salvation.
and some is less so:
"He [Saint Isaac] invokes two respected Oriental Fathers specifically in support—Theodore of Mopsuestia and Diodore of Tarsus."
errrm... these guys were nestorians. at least one of them was excommunicated. i wouldn't take their views too seriously. i know some of their work was good, but i will wait to be orthodox many more years before i start reading stuff from guys who got into trouble with the orthodox church. i don't want to get confused.
as for the long discussion after the article, it is a bit over my head, i don't understand that much theology.
i think there are some good points, though.
i have previously read some very good things on father aidan's blog, i think he is a lovely writer who is much wiser than i am.
i think he posts here too sometimes, so you could ask him about it, if you like.
