What I mean by indomitable

by Andrea Elizabeth

During the Q&A after Bishop Maxim‘s talk, where he had introduced the logos of human nature, I asked His Grace, “What is the difference between logos and telos?” With a follow up question after his brief answer, ‘are there many possible teloses?’ He said logos is like DNA and cannot be taken from us. We are inclined towards God. Telos is the goal, which is only being fixed in Christ. This is attained by following our natural coarse towards God with our free will. Unlike Aristotle’s teaching about the inevitability of reaching our telos, we can choose to go against our nature.
