The Trinity is so Fourth Century

While New Calvinists decide how to receive the teachings of Eastern bishops, Roman Catholic cardinals have moved on. According to Christoph Cardinal Schonborn:

AL [Amoris Laetitia] is an act of the magisterium that makes the teaching of the Church present and relevant today. Just as we read the Council of Nicaea in the light of the Council of Constantinople, and Vatican I in the light of Vatican II, so now we must read the previous statements of the magisterium about the family in the light of the contribution made by AL.

The funny thing about the evangelical controversy over the Trinity, the updated version offered by the likes of Ware and Grudem comes for the sake of outdated views of women’s roles.

Appropriating the past is tricky. Best to hire a historian.

  1. First of all, it’s great to see the photo of that teacher drawing the basic components of “classical” T-1 carrier on his chalk board, ca. 90’s technology, including the mu=255 law of quantization, bipolar sampling format, etc. Makes me feel reminiscent, out of date though it may be in today’s version of digital transmission environments.

    But I think DGH is trying to underscore the “amplification” (given that photo) that the Council of Constantinople had on the original Nicaean version of the creed, the V2 council had on the V1, and the current AL’s on the previous statements made by the Magisterium. I believe the “evangelical controversy” is referring to the application of gender-neutral verbiage to the Trinity as well as other parts of scripture, but I could be reading too much into it.

    Wow. I am impressed. Didn’t have a clue what all that was on the blackboard. Was happy to see he wasn’t using PowerPoint.

  3. Mark – don’t be overly impressed; 35 years in the telecom industry and you can recognize these things at a glance and recite the way they work in your sleep. (BTW, I have trouble sleeping)
