I am in my senior term at the Seminary of the Wilderness. My first ten years were spent as bi-vocational pastor/evangelist in Utah preaching of Christ how I knew best and trying to improve by learning theology from Reformed, Wesleyan, Pentecostal, Baptist and other sources. The second ten years were spent as a BVP/E and discovering that I didn't know what I thought I knew and reading the Bible without outside influence. At the beginning of the third ten I started seeing Christ in the OT, and tried to figure out how and why. I intend in the fourth ten to figure out how to communicate what I learned last term. After that I might be useful for something.

If you intended to ask about the union, then you may wish to restate the formula of your question so that it is more precise ;-)

You didn't ask about the union, only how to refer to the union..."Is it correct/acceptable in such a tradition to refer " This makes the first statement appropriate to the answer which follows. Affable has a great answer to a question that was not asked. And ideas are represented in many forms specifically because language is imprecise, requiring many restatements so that precision can be accomplished. Enforcing a mantra is a type of sacerdotalism where only the correct priestly mantras are acceptable.

The alternative is that zefciu above implies you may be a heretic for forgetting to dot your i's and cross your t's. He judges the mantra or formula rather than the idea you intended to convey. THAT is the true heresy... to judge by outward appearance rather than by the heart.

In what way is it not helpful? The question asks how you may refer to the body of Christ. The answer is, any way you wish as long as it reflects the reality of the truth behind it. Words are just symbols of ideas. So communicate the idea anyway you can.

Is enforcing a semantic uniformity necessary? Christ the man no more suggests that there are two Christ's than saying "Me, the father". It may be convenient to share terminology, but it is much more important to hear what is said (and ask if there are doubts), than to presuppose meaning because of a particular phrasing. Shall we reduce theology to the repetition of mantra's?

comment Does the Trinity share one mind or are there three separate minds?
Changed content to reflect the definition of love more clearly. Self-love isn't love at all, it is the self-centered nature of the flesh which we are commanded to 'put off'.

comment Would it have been possible for Jesus to sin?
Jesus told the parable about the son who said he would not do the will of the Father and then he did it. The parable was about himself. He did not want to be made to be sin, nor to die, but he "learned obedience" through the tings he suffered.

Holy means separate. He was separated from the Father on the cross when he was "forsaken". The whole point was tat a Holy God was made unholy, so that unholy us could be made holy. He was "made to be sin".
