“The teachings of the Church had a doctrine of the theosis of man, but in this theosis there is no man at all. The very problem of man is not even put. But man is godlike not alone because he is capable of supressing his own nature, and thus freeing a place for divinity. There is a godlikeness in human nature itself, in the very human voice of the nature.”
Nicolai A.Berydaev, Meaning of the Creative Act, 1955.
