The Angelic Doctor Against the Errors of the Greeks - Chapter 24

How the assertion that the creature does not belong to the Creator, is to be understood.

Dubious, too, is what Basil says in his book against Arius: “The creature does not belong to the Creator.” Footnote This contradicts what is said in John (1:11): He came unto his own.

But Gregory resolves this doubt in one of his homilies when he says that the creature belongs to the Creator in relation to his power, but is foreign to him in relation to his nature, that is, exists of a nature different from God’s.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
