The Becoming of G-d: What the Trinitarian nature of God has to do with Church and a deep Spirituality for the Twenty First Century

Doesn’t this look fascinating? I know the Trinity isn’t always the most comprehensible of Christian spirituality ideas, but the older I get the more I’m drawn to it. Ian Mobsby’s newest literary offering looks like a must-read; let’s see if we can get it more widely published in the U.S. while we’re at it. In the meantime LuLu has it here.

Related, Ian has a U.S. & Canada book tour gearing up; try and see him here.

PS: Ian is part of Westminster, London’s Moot Community. You should listen to their podcast and read their blog if you don’t already.

    Doesn’t this look fascinating? I know the Trinity isn’t always the most comprehensible of Christian spirituality ideas, but the older I get the more I’m drawn to it.<– These comments sum up how trinitarians often think about the trinity conundrum. Like the mormons they get a warm feeling which they can’t understand. “Isn’t always the most comprehensible,” is the biggest understatement I have heard in quite a while. The doctrine of the trinity is not only a stench in the nostrils of the One God but is completely illogical. It violates one of the 4 basic laws of logic–the Law of Contradiction which states: It is impossible for something both to be and not be at the same time and in the same respect. In other words Jesus can’t be 100% God and 100% man at the same time. IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE and isn’t Biblical. I will debate any trinitarian anytime at my blog Arius Rising.

    Hi John,

    Interesting perspective. So is logic and comprehension how you build your faith? This is a bit too limiting, for me at least…I don’t know that I could respect any god I could fully compass. I realize that such a statement likely strikes you as ‘absurd,’ and I know we have to pick and choose our precious transrational beliefs carefully… all the same, I’ve had to have a healthy respect for Mystery in the intersection between my faith and everyday life. With that said, I have non-trinitarian friends…peace to you!
