“…Let US make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…So God created man in HIS own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:26,27 condensed)
While standing firm upon and faithfully proclaiming the oneness of the triune God and the full deity of each Member of the Trinity – co-eternity, co-equality, and so forth – let those who teach God’s people (that is the Father’s children, the Son’s bride, and the Spirit’s temple) avoid the trap of setting up a mental idol of logical or mathematical symmetry.
Handle this sublime truth with extreme care and profound reverence. If staring at an eclipse can destroy our eyes, what might an attempt to gaze upon the almighty Majesty Who created the earth, the sun, and the moon do to us? The Lord our God is infinite and we are finite. Nothing in creation, much less the imagination of corrupt man, can illustrate His being. What theologians call “the Creator/creature distinction” can never be blurred. God triune is beyond our comprehension. And this theological truth revealed in His word draws forth from our lips the praises of doxological joy!
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.” (2 Corinthians 13:14)
