Tears and Fire: Recovering a Neglected Tradition VII

This self-limiting of God reaches its ultimate glory and potency in the handing over of Jesus the Christ, God willingly made object for us. Christ, the one who does not think equality with God a thing to be grasped, is raised high like Moses' serpent to heal us from the poison of our wanting to grasp control of everything and everyone and even our own theosis; to heal us from that which enslaves, and brings us every day closer to total annihilation; to show us that in the willing acknowledgement of our greatest weakness God can most powerfully enter and pour love through us.
