Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 2.1BN

[At this point, it becomes apparent how “God Recognizing Himself” might be reflected in the idea of “humans, created in the image of God”.

This should be no surprise, because the triadic relation “God Recognizing Himself” explains creation.

Maybe, I should call the relation “God Does Through”.

“The Holy Spirit3” brings “the Father (the One Who Creatively Does) and the Son (the One Who Does Through)2” into relation with “His Omnipotence, that is, the Possibility of Action and Being1“.

Hmmm. It may not be good grammar, but it is certainly evocative.

Evocative and strange, since creation does not really appear in this relation.

In the next blog, I will continue to explore the implications of the connection between God and creation.]
