    John 15:6 says that I should abide in Jesus, not a particular denomination. Read also John 14:6-7, Romans 10:3-10, and Ephesians 2:8-9. Jesus said that HE is the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. Not the church. The church simply points to Jesus.

    Does the Salvation on this thread mean going to the Lake of Fire?
    I notice so-called Orthodox are involved in the Idol Worships of which the members are going to the Lake of Fire.

    ICON-Image. Christ is "the image of the invisible God. Because Christ is God who became Man, He can Himself be imaged. Thus icons of Christ together with those of His saints-espress the reality of the Incarnation of Christ. Orthodox Christians honor or venerate icons, but never worship them, for worship is due to God alone. The honor given to icons passes on to the one represented on the icon, as a means of thanksgiving for what God has done in that persons's life.

    IDOL-A statue or other image of a false god; also anything that is worshiped in place of the one true God. Money, possessions, fame, even family members can become idols if we put them ahead of God.

    'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. Matthew 22:32

    He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. Colossians 1:15

    Therefore put to death your members, which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness,wich is idolatry. Colossians 3:5

    Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, overall the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." Genesis 1:26

    "You shall not make for yourself a carved image-any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters under the earth; you shal not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keeo My commandments." Exodus 20:4-6

    So Moses made a bronze serpent; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived. Numbers 21:9

    You shall make a veil woven of blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine woven linen. It shall be woven with an artistic design of cherubim. Exdous 26:31
