While limbo is an acceptable theological opinion, I have seen absolutely nothing in any teaching of the Church that leaves the option open that unbaptised infants go to heaven! That's why I opt for believing in limbo.

Exactly, it doesn't make any sense.

Christ wasn't kidding around when he says Baptism is necessary to enter his kingdom.

Melkite, you can have a negative view of Augustine, but Chyrsostom and others held the same view.

The unbaptized are completely dead to God.

I'm not going to make any rash decisions, I definitely want to look into this myself and do a proper research project.  But if this is in fact the teaching of the Church, I may have to seriously re-consider going Orthodox.
