[Fwd: Trinity debate (minus the extra baggage!)]
Yes, I agree our posts were getting rather drawn out, and I was having
difficulty finding the time to reply. I think part of that has to do
with the whole interwoven nature of Christian theology - I don't believe
you can take one part and leave out the rest. There's an
interconnectedness to it... keeping on topic, then:
You say that the Trinity is impossible because Jesus wouldn't have had a
body at one point in history, and bodiless beings are impossible to you.
I said bodiless beings are possible with a spiritual realm, but you
don't believe in a spiritual realm either, just the physical. Now I ask
you how to prove the physical realm, because if the spiritual realm
exists, it would follow that it is a form of reality somewhat like the
physical. If there can't be a sufficient test other than "you can feel
it," for the physical realm, why scream bloody murder when the same
proof is used for the spiritual? Again, it's not like we're talking some
foreign idea here, but one that spans cultures, peoples, and languages.
Just like the physical realm. It's just not logical to use double
standards like that.
