On Human Teachings

St. Theophan the Recluse ca. 1815-1895

Human teachings are always reaching out to what is new, growing, developing; and this is natural, for they do not have the truth, but are just seeking it. And let them seek it, for they do not have the truth, but are just seeking it. And let them seek it, as long as they find something stable. For us both the truth and the way to the truth have been defined once for all. We possess the truth, and all our efforts are directed toward its assimilation, not its discovery.
