One of the most famous Patristic maxims reads, “What is not assumed cannot be redeemed.” This was one solution provided by the early church fathers to answer one of the most perplexing problems in the history of religion: how can God save humans if God isn’t human? God, it follows, must have assumed humanity. But then another problem persists: how can a human save humanity? They can’t. Only God can. It’s in this spirit that Anselm of Canterbury, in the early middle ages, referred to Jesus as the “God-man.” The distinction and unity of both natures are imperative to salvation.
It’s here, I think, where PWSA’s religious material is most radical.
