  1. What does the word “contain” mean in this context?

    Which creed makes this claim?

    It might be more accurate to say that the infinite can express itself through the finite. Finite humanity becomes an interface for the infinite to enter in to the world as a participant and not just as an invisible force behind the scenes.

        Are you a filthy retard? If u identify a human and say that human is a monkey in a zoo, then u are saying that human is experiencing being an animal

        this whole “through” bullshit is not addressing the problem, u are saying god is EXISTING as a defecating one. you would probably take shit with your god.

        you would probably even fart with him. My point is u are saying the creator is EXISTING as a created one….this “through” bs has not solved any problem, it has just made it worse

        your filthy thought of even imaging god as defecating one goes to show how filthy your mind is

    • Contain i assume, would mean the apparent limiting of the divine nature expressing its full capabilities while being the hypostatic union. Such as his divine glory or knowledge.

      Moreover what does “enter in to the world” mean in this context? After all the two natures don’t mix so it shouldn’t make any difference to the divine role whether pre or post incarnation. to say that it does like the word “participant” to me at least implies “containing” the divine in his own creation. whether it be a human body or space time.

      Quote:

      Annoyed Pinoy” regularly posts at Triablogue. See here. He defends the Trinity doctrine at one of his own blogs.

      I posted the following challenge to him at that blog (see here).

      I now crosspost that here in case it happens to disappear:
      Trinitarians get around Mark 13:32 by limiting Jesus’ confession of ignorance solely to his “human nature”. But since one’s “nature” is their inherent feature and thus something the person cannot avoid implicating, then if Jesus had two natures, it would be perfectly reasonable to say that BOTH of them were implicated in his confession of ignorance (i.e., the divine side of Jesus admitted being ignorant of something).
      The reasonableness of implicating both of his alleged “natures” is not going to disappear merely because you feel forced under biblical inerrancy to automatically favor any view about Jesus that will make sense of the premise that he could both know and not know one single factoid at the same time.
      You probably believe that a person’s mind is their “spirit”, and if so, this would be the case with Jesus who became a “real” human being (i.e., became a higher-order mammal whose mind was capable of operating separately from its body). Ok, was Jesus speaking with his “mind” when he confessed this ignorance? Is Jesus’ “mind” the same as his “spirit”? Was Jesus’ speaking from his “spirit” by divulging the ignorant state of his “mind” in Mark 13:32? What exactly would be “unreasonable” in saying Jesus’ was speaking from his “spirit” in Mark 13:32?
      Was Jesus’ spirit separate from the Holy Spirit? Mark 3 would seem to disallow this with its warning that accusing Jesus of demon-possession constitutes blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, as it falsely equates the Holy Spirit with demons…which implies that Jesus’ “spirit” is the Holy Spirit, there is no lesser “human spirit” in addition to his “Holy Spirit”. Jesus also breathes on the disciples in John 20 and says “receive ye the Holy Spirit” powerfully supporting the notion that his spirit is the Holy Spirit, and there is no fourth identity called “human spirit” in existence here.
      Therefore, if Jesus was speaking his “mind” in Mark 13:32, he was also speaking from his “spirit” in Mark 13:32, and thus his confession of ignorance constitutes the Holy Spirit’s ignorance, which then saddles god himself with this ignorance.
      Was the day of Christ’s return missing from Jesus’ “mind”? Was it missing from his “spirit”?
      If you try to get away from this by positing that Jesus had a “human mind” that was separate from “Holy Spirit”, you’ll end up with 4 people in the Trinity…at least during his earthly life, even if there were only 3 people in it before the incarnation.
      Remember, there are only 3 persons you are allowed here, no extras!
      Seems to me that reading Trinitarian theology back into Mark 13:32 comes at great intellectual sacrifice, and doesn’t even conform to normative hermeneutical convention, since what the originally intended audience likely understood Mark 13:32 represents a normative rule of interpretation, and common sense would insist that Mark’s orignally intended audience, back there in 60 a.d., likely had views of Jesus far less theologically sophisticated than the views espoused by the “orthodox” at Nicaea.

      So Mark’s originally intended audience would more than likely have denied Jesus’ alleged omniscience, and if other parts of Mark indicate Jesus knew all things, this is either typical Semitic exaggeration, or Jesus inconsistently held an unrealistically high view of himself, or Mark’s gospel is merely inconsistent about the matter.

      I personally prefer the second. Mark’s obvious apathy toward Jesus’ childhood is more consistent with the theory that he was something of an adoptionist, even if, like most people, his entire story is not consistent with everything adoptionist.

      Regardless, bible inerrancy is a false doctrine, so I’m quite reasonable to feel comfortable with the possibility that the interpretation of Mark 13:32 that causes Mark to contradict himself, is the correct one.

      This is despite the fact that Mark nowhere claims that Jesus is equal with God.

  2. I don’t have a problem with what you call “ignorance”. Otherwise we have just have modalism with the same divine mind saying one thing here and one thing there. A bit like a ventriloquist. It’s a sign of a real distinction between the persons of the Godhead.

  3. The Father knows and the Son doesn’t. I don’t see this as a limitation that makes the Son any less God than the Father.

    Unless you can tell me what your criteria are.

    Then you are going to say the one is omniscient and the other isn’t.

    But that would be your stipulation against what the NT reveals. I side with what the NT reveals God to be and not what I think he should be.

      …What?! of course it does! To know everything is a attribute of divinity. If the son knows less than the father that makes him less god or not God in that moment. you can’t know everything and not know something at the same time.

      “Then you are going to say the one is omniscient and the other isn’t.”

      Well yes of course. Anyone who uses their mind would with this paradigm. including you in your first sentence.

      This just sounds like blind faith to me.

    • Go back to my first comment and compare it with where you said ““The Father knows and the Son doesn’t.” whether you like it or not God is limited by your theology. Containing is another form of limiting, you shouldn’t have a problem with it either. let me ask, whats the difference in your mind between God being contained and the son not knowing the hour? Because to me their basically the same issue.

      • I don’t know what you mean by “containing”. If you could flesh this out it would help me. You seem to use the word in a rather vague manner.

        Why should the Son know this one thing if the Father does not choose to reveal it to him?

        Why should that negate the divinity of the Son?

        You seem to know more about the nature of God than he has been pleased to reveal.

        “Why should the Son know this one thing if the Father does not choose to reveal it to him?”

        Because if the son claims to be God and demands worship then he should have the attributes of God.

        “Why should that negate the divinity of the Son?”

        …Because he’d not be all knowing. and being not all knowing makes you not God.

        “You seem to know more about the nature of God than he has been pleased to reveal.”

        What are you talking about? This is the very basic idea of God. that he be all knowing. Not to mention very consistent with whats left of the the past scriptures like Ezekiel 28

He is the only thing that is alone and uncreated, the incarnation then creates another thing that is like God which also makes Him drop His uniqueness.
