God’s Law will disappear

The commandments, i.e. God’s laws are a key part in the road of attaining illumination and theosis. However, after the Second Coming the laws will disappear; no commandments and no doctrines will exist. This will be the case due to the fact that humanity will be in communion with God; he will be participating in the deifying uncreated energy of God.

St. Paul explains: “Whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away…But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away” (1 Corinthians 13:8-10). This, however, does not only apply to the future coming, it can also be the case presently, when one reaches theosis; as St. Pauls also explains: “now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known” (1 Corinthians 13: 12).
