The Trinity

Well, I guess I've strayed from faith related topics lately, so I'm posting a link to an article about an upcoming debate here. This is so out of the realm of my Lutheran thinking that I kind of don't get it, but I'm all for not being stuck in a way of thinking just because I've been taught something, although I doubt I'll change my mind. I think I've been taught that considering the Trinity as three persons, with Jesus as subordinate, is an old heresy, long put to rest, but I guess not. But if this sub-group of Christians do consider Jesus as a subordinate part of the Trinity, why do they put so much emphasis on Jesus in song and worship?


  1. I had no idea that the Trinity was an aspect of keeping women in subordinate positions or that Jesus was considered an unequal partner. I'm Missouri Synod Lutheran born and raised and I've always thought of them as separate but equal.

  2. This is the first I read that the position of Jesus in the Trinity sets the position of women in society.
    Does that make Jesus a woman?

  3. Heresies are like dandelions: they may be gone for awhile but they'll be back. They may be disproved or discredited or untenable within the usual framework (and some are downright loopy), but that hardly stops people from going back to them.

    Take care & God bless
