First, Nick has clearly stepped off the deep end in regards to a biblical framework by declaring everyone who doesn’t believe the Trinity an atheist and a heretic, which of course got Tom Finland all fired up. Wow. Not only does that go against logic and Tradition, diminishes Christian unity, but so too is completely unbiblical, but then again, Nick has turned solely to the Church Councils for support. Of course, seemingly, only the church councils which he disagrees with. I was unaware that Nick had become his own Magisterium and Inquisition all in one. He wants to follow all the councils…. but I doubt he’ll follow all of the Council’s decrees. I mean, for instance, I wonder if he has Icons. Or limits the role of women to Deaconesses?
But, Kevin, on the other hand, God bless him, responds. He doesn’t go far enough, actually. Remember, the East and the West hold, at least in word-pictures and focus, a different Trinity. Nevertheless, Kevin raises excellent points. Which Trinity? Who’s the heretic/atheist?
My guess? It would be Nick.
