Thank you Joasia, a very interesting quote. I will have to look out for both books.
I can certainly understand that our will, mind, body ect. have been broken by the fall and are in need of serious attention to bring them back to what the first parents experienced in paradise. However, I also get the feeling that many of these things (that seem to make us so human), will, self, mind ect. will eventually be discarded or absorbed into the uncreated energies in theosis, not just cleaned from corruption. It seems that all that will be left is the will and love of God in us. Maybe I am misunderstanding, but why is this, if these things were present in Adam before the fall, and why did God give all of this to us in the first place? Surely we will all be present as individuals, with bodies, in the afterlife?
Why draw away from the intellect, reason, and body if they were given by God?
