Browse Worthy: Trinitarianism and Complementarianism
A fascinating debate is taking place on the blogosphere regarding the Trinity. Initiated by a defense of the complementarian view (that men and women have differing yet complementary roles in the home and church) that used the eternal relationship between the Father and the Son, the discussion has turned into a interesting dialogue with men like Wayne Grudem and Bruce Ware on the one side and Liam Gollagher and Carl Trueman on the other.
I bring this to your attention and link to these posts not because of a morbid curiosity to see brothers debating or an enjoyment in wrangling over words. Rather, I do so because getting the Trinity right is foundational to Christianity. Also, this discussion serves as an example of how we must be careful in seeking to support one doctrinal position that we do not stretch other tenets to a breaking point.
Below I simply list the columns with the author and dates so you can follow the flow of the discussion. The first three posts set some historical context, as this matter has been under discussion for some time and these works are referred to in some of the current posts. If other links become available, I may add to this post at a later date.
