thanks for your clear response!
Orthodox Christians affirm the “Monarchy of the Father”, as the Creed states, “we believe in one God, the Father”
God the Father is the font, source, origin, root of the rest of the Godhead, all the rest of which “inherits” (my word) His Essence
not sure Eastern Orthodox would quite be willing to phrase it as you stated, though Western Christians might (?)
Insofar as “God” (“Deity”) = "God the Father"
then the Word & Spirit are not “God” (“Deity”), even though they are fully “Godlike” (“Divine”)
the way you phrased it sounds like you are equating “Deity”, “God” with the shared common Essence of the triune Godhead…
whereas Orthodox equate “Deity”, “God” = unitary Person of The Father
So I understand that view is much more similar to the unitary Muslim view of “Allah” (say), with the Orthodox preferring to use the language of “God” = “Deity” = “The Father” (who does “beget” His Word and “proceed” His Spirit which emanate from His transcendent realm into our created reality)
If you refocus on the one shared common Essence of the triune Godhead, then you would be able to phrase it as you did… which quickly starts to sound like triune Modalism (1 God with 3 faces or modes of expression)
If Islam is “unitary” (focuses entirely on “Allah”), then Orthodox Christianity’s Monarchy of the Father is “unitary Pro Plus” (focuses on “The Father” with His Word and His Spirit reaching into our created reality from His transcendent realm vaguely like “two hands” quoting Saint Irenaeus)
completely compatible, in theory
but only if we root the Godhead in the one unitary Person of The Father, "we believe in one God, the Father…"
some are apparently wont to try to root the Godhead in the one shared common Essence…
which would require that the Person of the Father derives from the Essence in a manner superficially similar to the Word & Spirit, which is fundamentally modalistic, incompatible with other Abrahamic religious views, and inconsistent with the Monarchy of the Father, which I understand the EOC and RCC to officially affirm
