Re: Love and the Trinity

Back to the OP, I was discussing this elsewhere and had the following further thoughts. The social trinity and a proof based on love seems really desperate to me. But, it begs two questions. First, if God can’t be complete without expressing His love in eternity, then what do you do when considering...

Re: Is Allah Yahweh?

Similarly, the Christian's notion of God is trinitarian. The Jews had no Trinity in their theology, but Jesus said that the one they called their God was one and the same as His Father (John 8:54). Is the Jewish (n on-trinitarian) God the same as the Christian's (trinitarian) God? Jesus seemed to a...

Re: The First Christmas

That's one of the questions. But I'm not sure those are the only two choices. Arche does, indeed, refer to preeminence or position sometimes and I do think that's likely in view here more so than pre-existence (or even source, which also implies pre-existence). As in "Chief/leader/purpose/design/tem...

Women Bishops (and UMC Schism)

I'm surprised we haven't had a post about the UMC schism on LGBTQ yet. I may start one, but in that context (as a member of a UMC church) I've been looking at the various factions driving the various "plans forward" and "separation proposals" and that sort of thing leading up to the General Conferen...

Re: The First Christmas

I suspect it's due to various translations of arche tes ktiseos tou Theou (ἀρχὴ τῆς κτίσεως τοῦ Θεοῦ) as "beginning of God's Creation."

Re: Preaching in Acts and Christology

What’s your point, Paidion? My point is that the early Christians understood that Jesus is the Son of God in virtue of the fact that He was begotten by God before all ages, the first of God's acts. I haven't looked it up again yet, but that was taught long before the Nicene Creed in A.D. 325. It wa...

Re: Preaching in Acts and Christology

From the Nicene Creed (A.D. 325) I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible; and in one Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, the only-begotten, born of the Father before all ages .

Re: Should Trump Be Removed from Office

A bit off topic, but I wonder what views folks have of the "government" being on his shoulder. I dont follow. Innumerable men and women have had the gov't on their shoulder. I mean the particular reference to government being on the Messiah’s shoulder. What government is in view do you think? The K...
