    Perhaps the fact that man is made in God’s image and God has made him an interpersonal being, so to speak, is an argument in favour of an interpersonal God and thus an argument for the trinity. Man cannot live without personal relations to man. This could reflect the triune nature of God.

    If God is just the Father is he immutable and eternal as the Father? If so the Son must also be eternal and immutable as the Son.

    Ironically the only one who is called Everlasting Father in the OT is not the Father himself but the Messiah, Jesus.

      Paul,

      What do you think “the image of God” meant in Genesis 1:26?

    If we take Steve’s argument to its logical conclusion, God cannot be considered to be powerful enough to create universe if God didn’t create the universe. In a possible world, where God didn’t create universe, we will have to conclude that God does not possess the power to create the universe.

    Wondering if he feels that God had to learn this by having experienced interpersonal interaction in the long-long-ago in the before-time. Can God learn in his estimation?
