Trinity Joke March 26, 2007

Lar,

I’m behind today with a few more appointments than usual (besides 2 practices).  Now, the title of this post might seem to be a blasphemous contradiction, but let me know what you think about this one. I think there may be room to enjoy it. I’ll explain why at the end.

“Jesus said, Whom do men say that I am?

And his disciples answered and said, Some say you are John the Baptist returned from the dead; others say Elias, or other of the old prophets.

And Jesus answered and said, But whom do you say that I am?

Peter answered and said, “Thou art the Logos, existing in the Father as His rationality and then, by an act of His will, being generated, in consideration of the various functions by which God is related to his creation, but only on the fact that Scripture speaks of a Father, and a Son, and a Holy Spirit, each member of the Trinity being coequal with every other member, and each acting inseparably with and interpenetrating every other member, with only an economic subordination within God, but causing no division which would make the substance no longer simple.”

And Jesus answering, said, “What?”

The reason I thought the Lord might also laugh at this one is because while I was doing some reading on the Trinity over the weekend, I kept thinking to myself: “I wonder how we will explain things in Heaven. No matter how much we say, we are barely scratching the surface of such glory and grandeur!” Maybe the Lord hears our theological explanations and says, “Huh?”

Now, that is not to say that I don’t think we are faithful. It is just to emphasize the fact that no matter what we might say, the Lord is still up there saying, “Just wait until you get here!” I can’t wait!

Seeking Him in all His Trinitarian glory with you,

Joe
