In my reading about the Eastern Orthodox Church, I came to understand that their view of salvation is that it is a process, and that saving 'faith' requires repentance and reception of the Holy Mysteries. Fr Andrew Stephen Damick said that the Greek word for 'faith' (πίστις), like most Greek nouns that end in -ις, refers to an on-going process, rather than a one time event like Protestants believe when they say "I was saved on May 24, 2003 at 8:32pm".
Is the Oriental Orthodox view similar to that of Eastern Orthodoxy?
Also, does anyone know a good resource for articles on Oriental Orthodoxy, specifically those intended for Protestants or Roman Catholics interested in the Orthodox faith? The Eastern Orthodox have OrthodoxInfo
, Orthodox Outlet for Dogmatic Enquiries
and other sites.
Would most of the articles on those two sites be considered kosher from an OO perspective, or do they have some theological errors?
