Group Description

"We had become accursed through Adam's transgression and had fallen into the trap of death, abandoned by God. Yet all things were made new in Christ (IICor. 5:17) and our condition was restored to what it was in the beginning. It was entirely necessary that the Second Adam, who is from heaven (I Cor. 15:45) and superior to all sin, that is Christ, the pure and immaculate first fruits of our race, should free that nature of man from judgement, and once again call down upon it the heavenly graciousness of the Father. He would undo our abandonment by His obedience and complete submission: 'For He did no sin' (I Pet 2:22)but the nature of man was made rich in all blamelessness and innocence in Him, so that it could cry out with boldness: 'My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?' (S.Mt. 27:46). Understand that in becoming man, the Only Begotten spoke these words as one of us and on behalf of all our nature....."Holy Cyril Of Alexandria ON THE UNITY OF CHRIST, SVS, 105.

"The Faith which I was taught by the Holy Fathers, which I taught at all times

: without adjusting according to the times, this Faith I will never stop teaching;

: I was born with it and I live by it." (St. Gregory the Theologian).

In Christianity truth is not a philosophical concept nor is it a theory, a teaching, or a system, but rather, it is the living theanthropic hypostasis - the historical Jesus Christ (S Jn 14:6). Before Christ men could only conjecture about the Truth since they did not possess it. With Christ as the incarnate divine Logos the eternally complete divine Truth enters into the world. For this reason the Gospel says: "Truth came by Jesus Christ" (S Jn 1:17).(St. Justin of Chelje).
