|Fr. Lev Gillet, an Orthodox monk|
"God is a devouring fire. But what kind of fire? A fire of anger, of punishment, of destruction, of vengeance? Certain passages in the Bible seem to tend towards this interpretation, but they are anthropomorphisms; they are human - excessively human - figures of speech. The whole of the great spiritual tradition of Christianity - that of the New Testament, of the Fathers of the Church, of the saints - sees in this divine fire, in the fire of the Burning Bush, in the fire which seems to have a passion for self-communication, the incandescent charity of the Lord, the incandescence indeed of his love."
- Fr. Lev Gillet
