« Last post by Samn! on Today at 05:33:18 PM »
I believe they were supposed to meet today. Does anyone have any updates?

They agreed to hold the General Assembly, which will decide the fate of the Archdiocese on February 23: http://www.archeveche.eu/spip.php?article2270

Greek when I'm by myself, English with the family and in church.

Even the schism is a gift in that the diabolical nature of this whole movement might be exposed. They are so far from the Truth that they do not even know to hide the source of their shame.

Oriental Orthodox Discussion / Re: Are the Two Natures Distinct ?

Father Peter,  your not addressing my issue with freedom.  Does human nature have free will?
Before we move on. I'd like an answer or a representation of your churches position on this.
I already stated that a will exists independently of a person.  A gnomic will is a will with inclination.  Its fallen so it has the ability of swaying judgment.
The natural will of Christ while being free is in agreement too and not subject too. The natural will is aligned with gods will. Its the same will in the deified saint. It naturally flow with the grain of gods will. That is why its call natural. Its natural function never goes against the will of god.

I wanted to share a subjective experience that I have had on the EO side, although I cannot be an expert on the spiritual dimension:  I wonder if the Two Natures can be described as having a kind of 'fuller range of motion', while still being united in one Person.  This has been my sensation in the EO Churches.  Broader, wider, somehow.  OO closer in, more compact, subtle.  Both beautiful, Grace-filled. 

Shouldn't this be 'equivalent' enough?

I am wondering if there should be a need for a closer look at language used in texts . . .

The thing is, I don't think you have identified any difference.

I think this expresses well the OO understanding of the relation between the human and divine wills.

"His human will follows and that not as resisting and reluctant, but rather as subject to his divine and omnipotent will.  For it was right that the flesh should be moved but subject to the divine will."

Reply to Fr. Peter --

Thank you for this clarification.  In fact, I have encountered this idea also on the EO side  = human subject to the Divine.

Mostly English, a little Greek, a little less Latin, and much less Arabic.
