Relics Part Two, The Orthodox View of Salvation
November 05, 2007 Length: 57:28
Hierotheos Vlachos of Nafpaktos said, "The job of the Church is to make relics." The phenomenon of relics is not merely a human sentimental reaction to the past, but it is a real evidence of our salvation in Christ in whom "the fullness of deity dwells bodily" (Colossians 1:19, 2:9). The consequences of the incarnation go beyond a juridical declaration of innocence, they are evidence of the eternal destiny of the human being. In this program Steve and Bill begin to delve into the theology of the Church regarding our union with God in Christ through the Holy Spirit.
"Would like to thank you for the varied programmes you do. I am an Anglican based in Leicester in the UK and came across your station last year on the internet. I listen most days to your music podcast whilst preparing lessons for my students early in the morning, and I listen to your teaching podcasts via my mp3 player at other times. One or two of my students have even commented on the calming presence of the worship. The content is excellent, and the programmes are ministering to my spiritual needs. My appreciation for the Orthodox faith has deepened, and I am particularly enjoying the new series by Abbott Tryphon whose wisdom is down to earth and yet very practical. May God continue to bless your ministry. "
