Debate on Trinity at Trinity

Last night I attended one of many unique events I hope to experience at Trinity. A debate on the question, "Do relations of authority and submission exist eternally among the Persons of the Godhead?" was put on by the Carl F.H. Henry Center This may seem like a pointless question to many, but it has some interesting implications that came out during the debate in Trinity's ATO Chapel filled with about 400 people.

On the side of "Yes" were former Trinity professors Drs. Wayne Grudem and Bruce Ware. On the side of "No" were current Trinity professor Thomas McCall and University of Wisconsin-Madison philosophy professor, Dr. Keith Yandell.

Instead of throwing my own thoughts out there, which are childish seeing as how I have very little theological training and no philosophical training, I am going to default to some individuals who have responded to the debate in a pretty thorough manner. Here are the links:

Andy Naselli's live-blog
Collin Hansen's CT article online

And if you are further interested, here is a post from an individual who is writing his dissertation on this very topic:
