13 principles of faith vs Trinity?

Postby Guest » Tue Oct 16, 2012 10:44 pm

I'm interested in how you reconcile the second and third of the 13 Principles of Faith with the belief in a triune g-dhead in which one of the "persons" has a body. Thank you

Shalom. The dogma that God is "One" and "Unique" (2nd princ) and God is "Incorporeal" and "Incomparable" (3rd princ) are rightly understood in light of the transdimensional personhood constituting oneness of Being that Christian theology has called the "trinity" or "tri-unity." There is no need for me to reconcile anything, however, since inconsistencies arise with assumptions regarding simple monism, not the idea of plurality in oneness. Of course the idea of "Three-in-One-yet-Only-One" is a paradox or "mystery," but it is clearly inferred from the Scriptures themselves. Moreover the idea that absolute monism resolves any of these issues is incorrect, since it "pushes" the problem of the absurdity of the existence of the universe to the godhead.
