Entering into the Community of God via the Rublev Trinity - John Van Sloten
June 03, 2012
|In this message we’re going to try and peer into our relationship with our Triune God.
“The Lord appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day. Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground.
He said, “If I have found favor in your eyes, my lord,[a] do not pass your servant by. Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree. Let me get you something to eat, so you can be refreshed and then go on your way—now that you have come to your servant.”
“Very well,” they answered, “do as you say.”
So Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah. “Quick,” he said, “get three seahs of the finest flour and knead it and bake some bread.”
Then he ran to the herd and selected a choice, tender calf and gave it to a servant, who hurried to prepare it. 8 He then brought some curds and milk and the calf that had been prepared, and set these before them. While they ate, he stood near them under a tree.
Genesis 18:1-7, TNIV
“No one knows the Son, save the Father, and no one knows the Father, save the Son and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal him (Matt 11:27). Therefore, “no one comes to the Father, save through” the Son (Jn 14:6), and “no one can come to” the Son, “except the Father draws him” (Jn 6:44), and “gives” him this coming (Jn 6:65). But the one through whom the Father reveals the Son and through whom he draws humankind to the Son is the same; the Holy Spirit, “who proceeds from the Father” (Jn 15:26), but comes to us through the Son (Jn 14:26). It is he, and he alone, who makes possible the confession of the Son as Lord (1 Cor 12:11), for he “takes” from the Son and “glorifies” him (Jn 16:14); he “bears witness” of him (Jn 15:26) and causes the disciples to “remember all that he has said to them” (Jn 14:26). For this is the task of the “abiding Paraclete,” whom the Son has sent from the Father in his stead; as the “Spirit of sonship” (Rom 8:15), “to abide” with the disciples “forever” (Jn 14:6), and to unite them with the Son, who alone ensures their access to the Father. Only the one who has received the grace of the Holy Spirit will become a living “dwelling place of the Father and Son” (Jn 14:23).”

strange . you read from a book who speaks for an orthodox icon and for orthodox trinity dogma, and we hear you read that the holy spirit proceeds from the father "and the son". and of course it is NOT an orthodox dogma

The exact quote about the proceeding of the Holy Spirit is "'who proceeds from the Father' (Jn:26), but comes to us through the Son (Jn 14:26)" , and not "who proceeds from the Father and the Son" as he added after a short pause. Why did he add that the Holy Spirit proceeds also from the Son? Doesn't he know that cursed is he who adds to or takes away from the word of God? This is how the filioque heresy arose. The presenter is a liar and blasphemer.
