Essence and Energy, Synergy Part 6
March 24, 2008 Length: 1:02:01
In the sixth and final program on the series on "Relics", Steve and Bill discuss issues that face the Western theological concepts of nature, person, will and their relationships to one another before and after the fall. How one views the nature of God and the human being determines one's view of the meaning of salvation and the impact of "salvation" on the human being in this life. Relics are the evidence of the progressive nature of the human participation in the divine energies of God and a foretaste of the life to come in eternity. In the second half of the program Steve and Bill examine the New Testament and many passages that point us to the concept of "synergy", the working of the human person with God toward the goal of union with God.
"I am getting so much from this huge resource. I am a Catholic but feel very close to you guys with your inspiring love of Tradition, the Fathers, the liturgy, monasticism. It's so easy to be a rootless Christian today, only superficially connected or even severed from these treasures. Please pray for me as I will for you and your ministry."
