"7. The church confesses the Trinity to be a mystery beyond the full comprehension of man . There are absolutely no human analogies that can be made to capture the mystery of the Trinity,"
By church you obviously mean the denominations.
By "church" I mean the church militant (believers on earth). Your regular and presumptuous attempts at floccinaucinihilipilification notwithstanding, of course. :AMR:
The Biblical analogy is that the likeness in which man was created is also triune. Body, soul and spirit. You won't find that in your creeds because it is from the mind of the Spirit and exists in the minds of the holy.
You do not understand what you have read if you take from your reading that man is a trichotomy.
View attachment 25924 <-- Which is why you are partially correct to observe that the creeds and confessions do not presume what you have presumed.
These creedal/confessional statements of doctrine are accurate summaries of the teachings of Holy Writ from the patterns therein that have withstood the test of time and examination by the church militant (2 Tim 1:13; 2 Thess. 2:15; 2 Thess. 3:6; 1 Cor. 11:2; 1 Cor. 15:1-2).
You do seem to enjoy being a voice in the wilderness claiming to have discovered the right path, while ignoring the old paths, well-worn and proven stable after much examination and testing over the centuries. Of course, you are in good company herein at TOL, given that not a few also wrap themselves with the cloak of self-righteousness, holding themselves forth as emissaries of the truth. Would that all the saints that came before us were as illuminated and as discerning as you and others claim to be. Sigh.
