Dear Brethren,

Many People ask me what does it mean to be HUMAN?  The simple answer as given by the Holy Orthodox Church would be: To be human means we are to be like God!  This sounds almost impossible at first thinking about it … but YES! … we are to be like God.  The Fathers of the Church state that; ‘We are by GRACE to be what God is by Nature.’ But it is only by Divine Grace that we are able to do this, in fact, all things are possible with God, and we are in fact nothing without Him. 

From the Old Testament it states that humans were initially created in God’s Image.  So it is in God’s Image we are to be constantly growing into, to be truly human.  This process is called THEOSIS or DEIFICATION. So let us, my brethren, turn to CHRIST to see exactly what it means to be human for Jesus our Lord has 2 natures, being DIVINE & HUMAN.

 

With Love Christ,

Fr Lev
