“Are you saved?” A simple question with a relatively simple answer that has unfortunately become a lot more complicated in today’s world. Is it because we (Orthodox Christians) don’t know if we’re saved? Or is it because maybe our definition of salvation isn’t the same as everyone else’s?
That’s the final topic in the Ancient Faith in a Modern World series where we talk about what salvation really means and what the Church’s view is towards it. You might be surprised to discover that the definition of “saved” has changed quite a bit over the years. It might not mean what you think it means.
