The expansive goodness of God


In the beginning, God formed Adam,
not as if he stood in need of humanity,
but so that he would have someone
to confer his benefits upon.

–Irenæus (2nd century)
Against Heresies

Why He came


The Word of God, Jesus Christ,
out of his boundless love,
became what we are,
that he might make us what he is.

–Irenaeus  (ca. 125-202)

Back to wholeness

God did not tell us to follow Him
because He needed our help,
but because He knew that loving Him
would make us whole.

–Irenaeus (ca. 125-202)
