Christ has come to make us like God. There is in the heart of every human being a desire to be like God. If there were not, our first parents would never have fallen into temptation. The temptation presented to them is to disobey God, to eat the fruit and you will be like gods, knowing good and evil. Our Lord who knows of this desire in every human heart to be like God, has come to fulfil it in the case of all those who would follow him. The path that He chose, was not one of disobedience but rather of obedience. And so He tells us the way in which we can imitate God. God is by His very nature good He loves all His creatures. The scriptures themselves tells us that He hates nothing, He holds in abhorrence nothing that He has created. The nature of each creature is good, even the nature of the demons. What is wrong, is that these creatures who are free, have chosen to pervert God’s gifts and to use it not for the glory of the Creator but to bring glory to themselves, which is an act of creating darkness rather than light… For Fr. Linus’ complete homily please listen to the Audio.
