THEOSIS

Share |

THEOSIS - Theosis is the acquisition of the Holy Spirit, whereby through Grace one becomes a participant in the Kingdom of God. Theosis literally means to become gods by Grace. The Biblical words that are synonymous and descriptive of Theosis are: adoption, edemption, inheritance, glorification, holiness and perfection. Theosis is an act of the uncreated and infinite love of God. It begins here in time and space, but it is not static or complete, and is an open ended progression uninterrupted through all eternity.
