Christ is Risen!
(I am opening here this thread and I was not sure where to open. But the Admins can transfer it to a proper category if deemed reasonable)
I have read books from Christians that have been outside of Orthodox Church , and I have found there a very deep love and sufferings for Christ and faith. They have been part of other churches, i.e Anglican, Roman Catholic, Evangelical etc...
I am wondering what is their place and position now? Are they in heaven?
If not, how is it possible that such love and pious lives to be lived without the God's grace?
(Of course, we cannot be sure of who is in heaven and who is not, but at least we know that the saints are in heaven, So can such persons can be considered saints?)
Thanks and Regards,
