This makes him an heir to the world's greatest crime-fighter, and its greatest super-villain Ra's al Ghul.
The effects of this doctrine its main vindication. The knowledge of our religion and of the truth of things is independently manifest rather than in need of human teachers, for almost day by day it asserts itself by facts, and manifests itself brighter than the sun by the doctrine of Christ.
Still, as you nevertheless desire to hear about it, Macariuscome let us as we may be able set forth a few points of the faith of Christ: For although the sacred and inspired Scriptures are sufficient to declare the truth — while there are other works His fathers earth our blessed teachers compiled for this purpose, if he meet with which a man will gain some knowledge of the interpretation of the Scripturesand be able to learn what he wishes to know — still, as we have not at present in our hands the compositions of our teachers, we must communicate in writing to you what we learned from them — the faithnamely, of Christ the Saviour; lest any should hold cheap the doctrine taught among us, or think faith.
For this is what the Gentiles traduce and scoff at, and laugh loudly at us, insisting on the one fact of the Cross of Christ; and it is just here that one must pity their want of sense, because when they traduce His fathers earth Cross of Christ they do not see that its power has filled all the world, and that by it the effects of the knowledge of God are made manifest to all.
For they would not have scoffed at such a fact, had they, too, been men who genuinely gave heed to His divine Nature. On the contrary, they in their turn would have recognised this man as Saviour of the world, and that the Cross has been not a disaster, but a healing of Creation.
For if after the Cross all idolatry was overthrown, while every manifestation of demons is driven away by this Signand Christ alone is worshipped and the Father known through Him, and, while gainsayers are put to shame, He daily invisibly wins over the souls of these gainsayers — how, one might fairly ask them, is it still open to us to regard the matter as humaninstead of confessing that He Who ascended the Cross is Word of God and Saviour of the World?
But these men seem to me quite as bad as one who should traduce the sun when covered by clouds, while yet wondering at his light, seeing how the whole of creation is illumined by him.
For as the light is noble, and the sun, the chief cause of light, is nobler still, so, as it is a divine thing for the whole world to be filled with his knowledgeit follows that the orderer and chief cause of such an achievement is God and the Word of God. We speak then as lies within our power, first refuting the ignorance of the unbelieving; so that what is false being refuted, the truth may then shine forth of itself, and that you yourself, friend, may be reassured that you have believed what is trueand in coming to know Christ have not been deceived.
Moreover, I think it becoming to discourse to you, as a lover of Christabout Christsince I am sure that you rate faith in and knowledge of Him above anything else whatsoever. Evil no part of the essential nature of things. The original creation and constitution of man in grace and in the knowledge of God.
In the beginning wickedness did not exist. Nor indeed does it exist even now in those who are holynor does it in any way belong to their nature. But men later on began to contrive it and to elaborate it to their own hurt.
Whence also they devised the invention of idolstreating what was not as though it were. For God Maker of all and King of all, that has His Being beyond all substance and human discovery, inasmuch as He is good and exceeding noble, made, through His own Word our Saviour Jesus Christthe human race after His own image, and constituted man able to see and know realities by means of this assimilation to Himself, giving him also a conception and knowledge even of His own eternityin order that, preserving his nature intact, he might not ever either depart from his idea of Godnor recoil from the communion of the holy ones; but having the grace of Him that gave it, having also God's own power from the Word of the Fatherhe might rejoice and have fellowship with the Deity, living the life of immortality unharmed and truly blessed.
For having nothing to hinder his knowledge of the Deity, he ever beholds, by his purity, the Image of the FatherGod the Wordafter Whose image he himself is made. He is awe-struck as he contemplates that Providence which through the Word extends to the universebeing raised above the things of sense and every bodily appearance, but cleaving to the divine and thought-perceived things in the heavens by the power of his mind.
For when the mind of men does not hold converse with bodies, nor has mingled with it from without anything of their lustbut is wholly above them, dwelling with itself as it was made to begin with, then, transcending the things of sense and all things humanit is raised up on high; and seeing the Word, it sees in Him also the Father of the Word, taking pleasure in contemplating Him, and gaining renewal by its desire toward Him; 4.
So purity of soul is sufficient of itself to reflect Godas the Lord also says, Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
The decline of man from the above condition, owing to his absorption in material things. Thus then, as we have said, the Creator fashioned the race of menand thus meant it to remain. But men, making light of better things, and holding back from apprehending them, began to seek in preference things nearer to themselves.
But nearer to themselves were the body and its senses; so that while removing their mind from the things perceived by thought, they began to regard themselves; and so doing, and holding to the body and the other things of sense, and deceived as it were in their own surroundings, they fell into lust of themselves, preferring what was their own to the contemplation of what belonged to God.
Having then made themselves at home in these things, and not being willing to leave what was so near to them, they entangled their soul with bodily pleasures, vexed and turbid with all kind of lustswhile they wholly forgot the power they originally had from God.Doing His Father’s Work on Earth “Chapter Doing His Father’s Work on Earth,” New Testament Stories (), 67– On a Jewish feast day, the Savior went to the pool of Bethesda in Jerusalem.
