Ecumenoclasm is a heresy that denies the possibility of salvation to the bulk of humanity violates several fundamental principles of Orthodox and Catholic theology. It denies that God is a good and loving God who seeks the salvation of all humans, but rather turns God into a cruel divine caricature who creates humans, whose only final destiny can be eternal torment. This is not at all the Christian notion of God as the lover of humankind, the merciful and compassionate one, the benefactor of our souls.
