Neither Self-esteem nor Self-loathing

The seen and the unseen

There is the seen and there is the unseen, the material and the immaterial. That which is material can be scientifically examined and experienced; the immaterial can only be seen and experienced spiritually.

The seen and the unseen

Pure theology: Metaphysical theologyand pure theology

There are only a few Orthodox saints who have been given the honor of being called theologians. St. John the Theologian and St. Symeon the New Theologian, to give two examples, were declared theologians by the Church, because their theology was the result of their having encountered the living God.
