Chalcedon
#52
Of course I deny any Third or new nature or any confusion or Comingling.

The Problem is you are not listening to St. Cyril who is the Definitive Author on this topic. What he said is what the Church says, for the COuncil of Chalcedon sought to conform itself to the Teaching of Cyril.

Read what St. Cyril said in "That Christ is One."

OF Course Christ exists in Two natures. He exists in two natures that have come into a real full and perfect hypostatic union; of the humanity of his mother, and of the divinity of his father. And He continues as Both, But in the Unity of a single Composite Nature, The Nature of God-Man.

Christ is Not God/Man. And He is Not Godman. and he is not Mangod. He is God-man. See the subtleties?

Nestorius Would Say Christ is God/man. Conjunction. Heresy. The natures are not Conjoined in Christ, they are united. Some of the Nesotrianizing Chalcedonians wanted to say Christ is God Man. Separate, and distinct, and united, but there being no clear principle of union. The Eutychians (The only real monophysites were the followers of Eutyches, Not Dioscorus and Philoxenus and Severus. Their Christology is Orthodox, even if they hate Rome) WOuld say Christ was Godman, which is really the inversion of Arianism, saying Christ is Mangod. Eutychianism says Christ is similar to us, and was born of the virgin, but that his body was of heavenly origin. Later, Eutyches finally admitted that the Body of Christ was Consubstantial with his mother, but not with us. Yeah, figure that one out.  :pazzo: Arianism Says Christ is Trulyman, but that he is only similar to the father. So they are inversions of each other.

St. Cyril of Alexandria said Christ was God-man. In him the humanity and divinity were united as a single subsistent being. THis is called the hypostatic union.

However, since it is proper that a single being have only a single nature, Christ had one nature: But it was composite, Composed of the HUmanity and Divinity, Neither Being Changed, Confused, Divided or Separated. For Cyril this was necessary, because Christ died not only as man for us, but as God for us: Not That his Divinity suffered, But that He who is GOd offered his Flesh to the Trinity on our behalf. If Nestorius was right, Then only the humanity, The Man Jesus Died on the cross and would not be able to offer to the Father the Sacrifice of his blood OR extend it throughout time.

THerefore, St. Cyril INSISTED on the use of the Phrase: One Incarnate Nature of God the Word. And the Fathers and Councils accept this as Orthodox: That is, it does not consist of Confusion or Change.
