Trinitarian Logoi
Topic: Theology


Does the phrase
God speaking the Son by the Spirit
detrimentally miss an important theological truth of the filioque and, hence, a part of the Gospel of John's book of Glory discourse? Or, is it a helpful theological shorthand for Trinitarian relationships that is not addressing this particular theological dimension of procession?

Just for something completely different, answer "out loud" in the comments.

[theology] | [Trinity]


I've been wondering the same thing ... if the Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son, saying that the Father speaks the Son by the Spirit almost seems to suggest instead that the Son is begotten by the Father and the Spirit ... what do you think, man? I'm not at all sure ...

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely. free polls
