[quote=GrzeszDeL]It is not so much that the Orthodox teach error as that they refuse to teach the truth. That the Schism persists has more to do with (literally) damnable pride on both sides than with substantive doctrinal disagreements. That said, no reconciliation can be effected until such time as the Orthodox acknowledge the Faith as taught by the 21 ecumenical councils.
Grz, my brother!
I cannot believe that you placed that article for our perusal. It is a piece of unmitigated piffle and hate. It condems all the Orthodox to hell…
Now you know, despite your personal beliefs on this matter, that the Catholic Church does not teach this since Vatican II. Just read the relevant Vat.II documents as well as the contemporary CCC. They all teach that the Orthodox have the full means of salvation and all the Sacraments availible to them in their own Church…
But look at the contradictory nonsense which your article offers…
"… only a small concession has to be made by the Orthodox Schismatics to once again become part of the One True Church, and put themselves back on the road to salvation.
"One of the main reasons that Christian souls go to Hell? Yes, sadly, because the Orthodox Schismatics, who are Christian, have renounced obedience to the Supreme Head of the Church — the Roman Pontiff. As such, because of this, there is no hope of forgiveness of sins, or of sanctifying grace received through the illicit use of the Catholic Church’s sacraments while remaining in such a schismatic communion.
“If the Orthodox only knew the precarious position in which they find themselves as regards their final end!”
This is all glorious stuff pre-Vatican II, but you know that the Catholic position has changed radically since then,
