Eastern Orthodox/priests place after death


I am a Copt. After death, shall priests go to heaven or wait like us until Jesus to come and judge.

hi Adel,

thnx for ur question.

all humans with the same future will be in the same place. those who will go to heaven will be waiting in paradise and those to hell will wait in hades. priests are humans: they will wait like us for Lord Jesus to come and judge. u cannot say that all priests will go to heaven. even some popes gave Church lots of trouble.

ur questions and follow ups r always welcome.

in Christ,


Eastern Orthodox

Peace be with you. I am an Egyptian Coptic Orthodox. I can answer questions about the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox beliefs, especially Coptic beliefs.


I have the knowledge to say something useful.

I teach children in my church how to read the Holy Book and other sacred books used in holy services.
