Sorry about the argument warming over. Answers are answers even if they are not accepted. Lutheranism is relatively simple. We do not seek to satisfy all our curiosity by continually debating the hidden God stuff. We have the incarnate God in whom the entire Godhead dwells. The doctrine of Christ, for the most part, can be understood by children. Jesus said unless you change and become as little children you will not enter the Kingdom. For my part. I am new here and I appreciate the links to previous discussion. Having had a long history in Calvinism all Calvinist arguments seemed warmed over. And at times warmed over with a generous bit of sophistry.Good post by the way. God's peace. †
