“…whenever we want to do our own will in contradiction to the will of our Creator, each of us must remember that God doesn’t simply confront us with a fiat, ‘No, you’re not going to do it and I’m not going to allow it.’ Rather, He confronts us with the fact that we are made, each of us, in His image and likeness. And we are confronted before every act of disobedience with the question, ‘Who is like God? What does it mean to be like God?’.”
(Archbishop Melchisedek in ‘Life Transfigured’ journal,  2022)
