Purity in christian dating
The Beatific Vision is God’s infinite self-knowledge.It is His “vision” of His own being, goodness, truth, beauty, love, everything He is—and of everything He has created. Here is some heavy-duty theology from the old Catholic encyclopedia: The blessed see God, not merely according to the measure of His likeness imperfectly reflected in creation, but they see Him as He is, after the manner of His own Being.
