“Storm that Melts Mountains” - huh?

Here’s a classic example of the inanity that going on at the biennial General Assembly meeting of the Presbyterian Church (USA). The Committee on Theological Issues and Insitutions sent forward a paper on the Trinity with some, uh, interesting ideas. The paper was “received” instead of “approved.” Get a load of these proposed alternative names for the Trinity:

  • Rainbow, Ark and Dove
  • Speaker, Word and Breath
  • Overflowing Font, Living Water and Flowing River
  • Compassionate Mother, Beloved Child and Life-Giving Womb
  • Sun, Light and Burning Ray
  • Giver, Gift and Giving
  • Lover, Beloved and Love
  • Rock, Cornerstone and Temple
  • Fire that Consumes, Sword that Divides and Storm that Melts Mountains
      • The One Who Was, the One Who Is and the One who is to Come

      (Go ahead - pick your favorite.)

      I’m glad these folks are considering the serious theological issues that the church needs to address today.

      Needless to say, a PC (USA) church is not likely a part of our future when we move to the DC area.

        I don’t get the PCUSA. These are people who want to believe in a Being described by the Bible, while accepting anything — ANYTHING — in their everyday lives as long as it isn’t what the Bible actually says. These are people who want badly to make up their own religion (ala the Flying Spaghetti Monster) and lack either the originality or the fortitude to just leave Christianity behind and do it.

        People out in the world are needing something solid to stand on, and we get “the compassionate mother and the life-giving womb”. Give me a break.
