Farrer on double agency

"man's salvation is not achieved by man's passivity. He may be passive to God; but his passivity to God involves and indeed is an activity on his own part. The trees were passive to Orpheus; that's why they danced."

     Austin Farrer, Faith and speculation: an essay in philosophical theology (New York: New York University Press, 1967), 22.
