Both/And…Either/Or (part ii)

September 1, 2007


Within the Christian tradition there is much that is both/and.

God is one…God is Trinity

God is eternal and transcendent…God steps into time as a human being

Jesus is fully God…fully human

Creation is good…creation is fallen

Jesus is Lord and King (pantocrator)…Jesus is the Lamb of God, the suffering servant

Salvation is an event…Salvation is a process

The mercies of God are new every morning…there is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes)

 God loves the United States…God loves all nations of the world

    Thank you – this is very helpful to understanding how a both/and mentality applies to our faith/theology.

    Amen. And doesn’t that picture depict the Trinity?
