John Meyendorf

God in history

translated by: Deacon Radomir Rakić, prof.

pages: 147-155

Abstract

The Author stresses the link between Creation and the Incarnation of the Son of God — which leads to the deification of human nature in Christ, and salvation of free human persons, however not of impersonal institutions (like States or nations).

Salvation is already present in the Eucharist, which has a cosmic impact. Against this eucharistical — new creation — aspect of the Church our history is loaded with mythic ideologies of mediaeval theocracy, of national State self- -sufficieny, or blind submission to Caesar's power.
