What did the ECF think of "Eternal subordination of the Son"?


Well-known member
I wouldn't phrase it like that. I would say that the divinity of the Son and Spirit are relable to and proved by their being one with the Father, and consequently owing accountability to the Father, and further in the case of the Son, by sitting on the throne of the Father, and in the case of the Spirit, by being also accountable to the Son.

Note that being "one with the Father" (per Jesus at John 10:30) doesn't infer Monarchianism but does infer the idea of the concept of divinity as possessing but one hypostasis (Heb 1:3) derived from the Father, and not three, as in Trinitarianism.

What does "are relable to" mean, I can't make sense of it.
