  1. Simplicity? Speculations? Why not this: the Trinity is a mystery that we accept on faith – and we leave it at that. Much mental speculation, and to what purpose? God’s being and His ways are quite far above man’s limited understanding.

    • That attitude really irks me every time I encounter it. I have no interest in switching off my brain and just “taking stuff on faith”. That is a recipe for sectarianism, fundamentalism, ignorance, stupidity and terrorism.

      I find it far more enjoyable and edifying to actually meditate on Gods mysteries and come to unique insights, rather than just lazily throwing my hands back and saying “I don’t get it” and not even attempting to understand.

      Also, as established by this series of posts, the trinity is not some revealed truth that can only be accessed by a blind faith; it is actually something that falls out directly from classical theism on the basis of reason alone

      • Yes, faith can be supported by reason and logic. I was merely suggesting that human intellect has its limitations and cannot fully deduce or fully comprehend the mystery of God’s nature and being. I will refrain from commenting in the future.
