Modern Orthodox Wisdom
In spite of the fact that creation is of God and essentially good, the devil at the same time has parasitically transformed this same creation of God into a temporary kingdom for himself. The devil, death and sin are reigning in this world and not in another. Both the kingdom of darkness and kingdom of light are battling hand to hand in the same place. For this reason, the only true victory over the devil is the resurrection of the dead.--Fr. John Romanides "Original Sin according to St. Paul," St. Vladimir's Seminary Quarterly 2:1.
