Week 5 – Fuellenbach Ch. 4

October 28, 2007

“The church as an icon of the Trinity brings forth that unity with the Triune God and with one another for which the kingdom of God is the perfect expression” (89). Is the church really an icon of the Trinity? Do people really look at the church, with all its divisions and factions and petty arguments, and think: ah, that’s such a perfect representation of the Trinity? I think it’s a truer statement that we need to be reminded that the church is not the kingdom of God but that the kingdom of God is certainly present in the church as certainly as it is present out of it. This is more of the centered-set model thinking. But the Trinity is all about unity, and I don’t really see a unity emphasis within the church right now. We’re too busy splitting to think about coming together. Maybe Fuellenbach is referring to the RCC.
