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.
"AFR was a major help in my conversion to Orthodoxy from Anglicanism. After so many years of wandering in the desert of the worldly conflicts consuming the Anglican Church, I am now at home in the Church as Our Lord intends it to be. Thank you so very much for this wonderful work you are doing. Thank you for helping me and others find our way to the Orthodox Faith. "
