God's love as a burning fire
Posted 10 October 2011 - 04:07 PM
I've been looking for the past two days for a thread that would answer my question but have not found it, so please forgive me if I've missed it somewhere and just direct me to it if possible.
My question is, somewhere (and I think it's been many places) I've read about God's love being a burning fire and this being used to describe Hell and also the time of waiting between the first and last judgment for those who are walking on the bad or left side, also called the goats?
Could you tell me where I can re-find this and who wrote or said it? Or if I'm wrong please pray for me that I won't be banded from further activities here at Monachos.

There are actually several threads on the topic. This one offers some critique of the above article: Do you think most Orthodox hold the western view of heaven/hell?
Does that help?

I hope this message finds you all well in Christ. There is a particularly great book by the Metropolitan of Nafpaktos, Hierotheos, entitled "Life after Death" which very clearly and concisely presents the Orthodox viewpoint on the question stated above. I would, without reservation, recommend the book.
Pray for me in my weakness,
