That statement is clearly not true. The Trinity like all theological doctrine is about one basic thing, which is salvation, or our relationship to God. Since we humans are created beings as the Bible makes very clear, the Trinity is about the relationship of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and not the Godhead [God has no head as God has no body] to created human beings and our world.
“Relationally” and “absolute” simply confuse matters
Whether using the terms absolute and relationally confuses or clarifies, human beings think in these terms. Thus if we are to address the deeper issues inherent in our understanding the science and theology and philosophy, we must address their meaning and use them. In this instance @fmiddel used the term absolute first.
In the past you have defended the view that God is Impassive, which is closely tied to the understanding that God is Absolute. This is the basis of this statement and of course to bring you into the discussion, which it did.
Finally, it does not follow from the fact that God is triune that Creation is triune, for reasons long ago pointed out to you by Jon Garvey and myself, and now again pointed out to you by fmiddel and myself.
Eddie, you seem to have a very selective memory. The first exchange, which was a long time ago or so it seems with you and Jon was the first endless debate that we had which was far from conclusive. It would be interesting to dig that out from the archives, if it is still there to see exactly how it went. It was more about the nature of the Trinity as “egalitarian” as per Augustine, or “hierarchical” as per the Cappadocians and the Eastern Church.
In terms of my exchange with you and fmiddel that was recent and it was concerning humans being created in the Image of God as Trinity. Fmiddel said that this was untrue, because if people were created in the Image of God as Trinity, they would be God, which does not follow. You said that if humans were created in the Image of God, they would not have bodies, because God does not have a body. If this were true, then the Bible would be false…
This is not a simple matter which can be solved by a few proof texts, although I do not dismiss the values of important Biblical to point to the meaning of the Bible, which I why I use important passages to illustrate important points. This said it takes a book to fully clarify a doctrine, which is why Augustine wrote De Trinitate.
