The Orthodox Church in America

           a Puppet of Russia.

Post-reconciliation schism:

Critics of the reunification argue that "the hierarchy in Moscow still has not properly addressed the issue of KGB infiltration of the church hierarchy during the Soviet period."

( so.... you are potentially confessing

your sins to the KGB / FSB or FSS in America,

as Russian rules over the USA church jurisdiction in Orthodoxy!!)

Founded in 1794 — Granted Autocephaly in 1970 by Russia  -  denied autocephaly by the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

Some are Universalists!

After research this heresy does not seem to be prevalent among the Orthodox, only a few of them perhaps are Universal reconciliationists. Obviously I cannot conduct a survey on it!

called by them when of a particular form Apokatastasis   - is the heretical teaching of many in the Orthodox church that everyone will, in the end, be saved, also called universalism. The heresy was perhaps learnt from  Zoroastrianism. .( apocatastasis, )

for proof see:

https://orthodoxwiki.org/Apocatastasis

As you will see from this quotation taken from the article, one form of Universalism preached by Origen has been declared anathema by Orthodoxy, quote:

If anyone shall say that all reasonable beings will one day be united in one, when the hypostases as well as the numbers and the bodies shall have disappeared, and that the knowledge of the world to come will carry with it the ruin of the worlds, and the rejection of bodies as also the abolition of [all] names, and that there shall be finally an identity of the γνῶσις and of the hypostasis; moreover, that in this pretended apocatastasis, spirits only will continue to exist, as it was in the feigned pre-existence: let him be anathema. (Fourteenth anathema against Origen)2 .

This is low down on the list of heresies as statistics on how many believe it cannot be obtained. If Orthodoxy is supposedly against all forms of it, why do they not utterly repudiate those among them who add this heresy to the already heretical widespread Orthodox belief that the fires of Hell are just a metaphor for being "tormented" by God loving you.

The repudiation of a form of this heresy preached by Origen, calling for those who believe it to be anathema makes the belief unlikely to be widespread in Orthodoxy.
