Hey Andy,

To be fair, Bruce McC does not want to argue that 'the Trinity is a result of election'; rather, he wants to argue that in God's eternal will to be God, he wills in the same single act of decision both to be Father, Son and Spirit, and to be God for us, i.e., election.

Thanks Steve, I'm still trying to get my head around some of these arguments. Good to see you back blogging.



actually McCormack argues both ideas in succession - he initially argues the idea outlined by Steve, then in a subsequent article he suggests that the argument you outlined might be a beneficial way to understand Barth's doctrine of election and God.

Hunsinger was responding to both, but focusing his response to the second.
