We dream of idols

Hanging out with Reeves at UCCF new staff training...

When we think of “God” we don’t know what we’re talking about. We dream of idols. Look at the religions of the world and its obvious that there is no universal understanding of what God must be. Which 'god'? Allah, Zeus, Dagon??
Only in the Bible do we get the doctrine of Trinity. The Christian distinctive.
Gregory of Naziansus (the greatest ginger theologian [yet]):
when I say God I mean Father, Son and Holy Spirit. None of your divine substance stuff...
They are what they are in relation to one another: Father, Son & Holy Spirit loving one another.
