The Trinity

1 comment:

  1. This:

    a) Misunderstands the nature of an analogy, which obviously has to be disanalogous at some point (in favour of some good old-fashioned obfuscation); and

    b) Fails on internal consistency; if the Trinity is best confessed in the words of the Athanasian Creed, which contains these words:

    "The Father is made of none, neither created nor begotten.

    The Son is of the Father alone; not made nor created, but begotten.

    The Holy Spirit is of the Father and of the Son; neither made, nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding."

    then how is the sun analogy wrong, on that view of the Trinity? It sounds rather apt if you believe in eternal generation and procession.
