Introducción a San Pablo – Parte 2ª
June 20, 2013 Length: 7:58
En esta segunda de tres conferencias, Padre Joan da a conocer como el evangelio cristiano es acción sinérgica, es decir amistad entendida como la fusión de la Filantropía de Dios y la conversión del hombre. San Pablo es, antes de todo, un converso y su conversión nos conduce al conocimiento de la fusión de amistad, la experiencia crística, es decir la VIDA EN CRISTO que llevó a san Pablo a exclamar y afirmar: «Ya no soy yo quien vive sino es Cristo Quien vive en mí.»
In this second of three podcasts, Father Joan examines how St. Paul expresses his notion of Christian gospel as synergy, or friendship. St. Paul is, after all, a convert. And his conversion leads to knowledge as friendship. Understood in this way, gospel is God’s philanthropy cooperating with the person's ongoing conversion. It is the Christ experience. It is LIFE IN CHRIST of which St. Paul says: "It is no longer I who live, but Christ living in me."
"I've been interested in the Orthodox Church and teachings lately. I grew up Southern Baptist and then I was a Charismatic. I've been pretty much burned out on Protestant Evangelicalism over the past few years. I'm finding the Orthodox Church to be a breath of fresh air on many issues. I hope to visit an Orthodox Church soon. I haven't decided if I want to convert, but I won't rule it out at this point. Thanks for all that you do."
