Creation Names
 
The Latin Church, paradoxical as ever, while applying the epithet of Creator to Jehovah alone, adopts a whole Kyriel of names for the working forces of the latter, those names betraying the secret. For if the said Forces had nought to do with “Creation” so-called, why call them Elohim (Alhim) in plural; “divine workmen” and Energies ([[’Energeia]]), incandescent celestial stones (lapides igniti coelorum), and especially, “supporters of the World” ([[Kosmokratores]]), governors or rulers of the World (rectores mundi), the “Wheels” of the World (Rotae), Ophanim, Flames and Powers, “Sons of God” (B’ne Alhim), “Vigilant counsellors,” etc., etc.
