    I'm sorry 37818, but its really difficult to understand your writing. I'm not sure exactly what you're saying and how it differs from what Adrift told you.

    Did you mean to say: "He is the Only Begotten Son, which means He (The Son) is the expression of God (The Father?) and His (The Son?) very nature as being God (The Trinity?). He was not begotten, or made, in order to be the Son of God."

    I've added some place where your use of pronouns becomes confusing when discussing God as Trinity.

    As it is, this is a statement, in fact just a repetition of your original point. I'm with Adrift on this. Denying that Christ proceeds from the Father, is to deny an important aspect of the nature of the Trinity. We're not saying that there was a point where The Son did not exist, and after which He came into existence. We're saying that He is eternally proceeding from the Father.

    The Son is begotten in eternity, but not created. The expressions "expression of God" and "radiance of God's glory" points to this.

    If the Son and the Spírit is the source of Their own godhood it would seem that there are not one God, but three.

    Did Adrift say something on the Trinity in another thread? Because I don't see any of his posts in this thread.

    I think he meant you.
    Safka, you are NOT "unknown", you were loved by many, and you will not be forgotten. I will always remember you Puginator.

    Seemed to be merely a matter of logical inference at this point.

    Did I compliment you, or was it an insult? The world might never know.
