3 Natures in Christ

Show me where the fathers, the Church, or her approved theologians say that the creation of the soul is from God's own being. ALL of the Fathers and theologians teach God creates IMMEDIATE FROM NOTHING. THe soul has no origin except the divine mind and will.

That's not really my point though.  My point is that nothing comes from nothing.  So everything that is made contains some small mark of the Creator.  He is the ONLY source of existence.  So when we exist, we share what He already had.  We receive the gift which He gives to us, the only One able to give.  Our soul comes from Him in a special way and does not come from nowhere.

I admit that this is a theological view that has a bit of neo-Platonic flare to it, but it's most certainly not some new theory I'm espousing nor is it pantheistic in any way.  

Men are not God.  Nothing is God but God, the Trinity, in 3 Persons.  In fact, I usually stress the radical transcendence of God and consistently say that that is the key to understanding all philosophy and theology.
