Correct me if I am wrong, you stated in a post, I am not sure which one, that the church explicitly teaches that Christ is the God of the OT. Aaron, I agree it currently does also, but without “divine investiture,“ you can’t logically defend Christ being the God of the OT. You seem to be mixing the two thoughts.I don't disagree. You can take the Talmage route, ignore the Lectures on Faith, and believe in "divine investiture". I get that, another plausible explanation.
