More Quotes by Horace Bushnell:

God in Christ: Three Discourses presented at New Haven, Cambridge, Andover

"A metaphysical trinity must be assaulted by a metaphysical unity." (pg. 130)

Speaking of Trinitarians: "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, are, in their view, socially united only, and preside in that way, as a kind of celestial tritheocracy over the world. They are one God simply in the sense that the three will always act together with a perfect consent, or coincidence. (pg. 131)"

"...our properly orthodox teachers and churches, while professing three person, also retain the verbal profession of one person. They suppose themselves to really hold that God is one person. And yet they most certainly do not; they only confuse their understanding, and call their confusion faith." (pg. 131)

Thanks for stopping by. I have noticed that Bushnell is not afraid to deal with the tensions of the Trinity.

Adversus Trinitas

"...unless you believe that I am he you will die in your sins." (John 8:24 ESV)
