You have already had two people post the whole Athanasian Creed, which is a definative statement of exactly what we believe about the Trinity. It is the orthdox view, (and obscure as it is), it is the best we can offer. If it does not constitute for you, (a straight answer), I guess it is fair for you to assume that this horse has been beaten to death. I strongly suspect, (God forgive me for my synical streak), that the only reason you brought up the subject was to watch us wriggle, trying to explain the inexplicable. But perhaps I’m being uncharitable in my suspicions.
