I am a fellow OO in the Ethiopian Orthdox Church. I live in US and currently there is a big divide among-est many in the Ethiopian orthodox faith. I am here to see the Coptic Perspective of the issue.
Is calling Jesus my intercessor a blasphemy or something outside of the Orthodox lines ? Can one be excommunicated for saying/believing/teaching that ? Does Jesus intercede for us NOW ? I am a bit confused because I never knew this is a dividing line between Orthodox and protestants. I thought that this is a general christian denomination belief including OO.
Thank you all,
