God created man by His image and in His likeness.

Be perfect as Your Heavenly Father is perfect

This is the basic principle why God created man: man was created by the image and in the likeness of God. So: perfect, by the image of God; yet not completely perfect, but as a potential, as the beginning of his (man’s) perfection to the likeness of God. In paradise man lived according to his nature, in constant union and conversation with his Creator and God. Man unceasingly savoured the uncreated immaterial Divine energies – that is, the grace of the Holy Spirit. (more…)

Бог го создал човекот според Својот образ и подобие.

Бидете совршени како што е совршен вашиот Отец небесен

Совршенството е основното начело и причина зошто Бог го створил човекот. Човекот е создаден според образ и подобие Божјо. Значи, создаден е совршен според образот Божји, но не совршен во потполност, туку потенцијално совршен, односно да се труди во усовршувањето до подобието Божјо. Човекот во рајот живееше согласно неговата природа, во непрестајна заедница И разговор со својот Создател И Бог. Тој непрестано се насладуваше со несоздадените нетварни Божествени енергии, односно со благодатта на Светиот Дух. (more…)

Светите Отци велат дека во Црквата можеме да го постигнеме обожението. Меѓутоа, обожението е дар Божји, а не е нешто што го стекнуваме самите. Ние треба да сакаме, да се бориме (подвизуваме) и да се подготвуваме за да бидеме достојни, способни и приемчиви да го примиме и сочуваме овој голем Божји дар, бидејќи Бог не сака ништо да прави без нашата слобода. Затоа светите Отци велат дека ние го примаме обожението, а Бог го изведува.

Holy Fathers say that we may achieve the Deification in the Church. However, Deification is a gift from God and not something that we ourselves achieve. We have to love, to struggle and be prepared to be worthy, capable and acceptable to receive and keep this gift from God, because God doesn’t want to do anything out of our freedom. Therefore, the Holy Fathers say that we do receive the deification, and God is realising such deed.

We may find several necessary preferences (predispositions) on the man’s road to deification. (more…)
