I can see that the statement of one-ness of being between God, Christ and Man may lead, further down the inferential chain, to consequences which are apparently heretical or otherwise unacceptable – yet such ‘third-level incoherence’ is always the case for any theology concrete and simple enough to be relevant and useful in life.
Better a deep level of possible theological incoherence, than a superficial level of theological irrelevance – which looks very much like evasion.
Thus Bruce Charlton.
