Plurality in God
On page 86 of Reflecting the Divine Image, Dunning says "Some popular bible teachers suggest that here we have an Old Testament reference to the Trinity, a New Testament truth. This is anachronistic. I believe the best way to explain these references that suggest a plurality in God is to interpret them to mean that God has a social nature, interpersonal in character."
Any one up to explaining this to me? I have heard the first part before, and it worked for me. I can't picture how one can "suggest a plurality in God" without it meaning the Trinity. Unless Dunning is trying to say that 'we can't go so far as to pinpoint three persons in that plurality' in which case I can see that somewhat. It is a rather vague statement nonetheless.
Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. 1 John 3:18
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. 1 John 4:18a
